For as long as I can remember, I have slept with two pillows: a firm, supportive one on the bottom and a sumptuously smushy one on top. I thought that was the only way to get the combination of supportive and soft that I need if I’m going to get my optimal eight hours of shuteye. Every night before bed, I’d arrange the pillows for maximum comfort and support, and I’d flip the top pillow to the cool side at least twice throughout the night when my ear got sweaty. Well, my friends, that long, involved process was before the Latex Pillow from Saatva came into my life. This hotel-quality pillow has totally changed the way I approach my sleep setup. In fact, it’s such a special find that it was awarded the title of Best Luxe Pillow on Apartment Therapy’s Best List. Let me tell you why.

The Saatva Latex Pillow combines the best of both types of pillows into one substantial sleep accessory that’s at once soft and super supportive. Just looking at it in my room makes me want to flop into bed ASAP, the way you feel when you open the door of an uber-chic-yet-comfy-looking hotel room. And once you lay your head down, it only gets better.

I tend to sleep a bit erratically, switching between my stomach, back, and side, and the Saatva pillow accommodates me comfortably no matter what position I’m in. Crafted with an organic cotton cover, shredded latex fill, and a microdenier fiber inner pillow that feels as plush as down but without all of the, well, downsides, this pillow is a step forward in sleep technology. It’s incredibly durable and long lasting, and since the fill remains spread consistently rather than bunching, it’s supportive all night long. Gone are the days of waking up with a stiff neck because I somehow lost one pillow during the night! And since the Saatva Latex Pillow is more breathable than synthetic pillows, it never gets too hot or makes my head sweat. I don’t even have to turn it over to find the cool side — it’s all cool.

Saatva’s high-quality pillow is also treated to remove allergy-causing irritants, so you can rest easy that it’s good for everyone in the house. It’s also CertiPUR-US certified, as well as resistant to dust and mildew. When it does need a cleaning, just toss it into the washing machine. It’s kind of like discovering that your favorite sparkly evening dress has pockets and is machine washable. Score!

The Latex Pillow is available in Queen and King sizes. At $165 a piece, it’s definitely pricey, but in my well-rested opinion, it’s totally worth the splurge. I know I’m going to be comfortably laying my head down on mine for years to come. Sweet dreams, indeed.
