Medium-soft or Medium-firm - which should I buy?

Medium-soft or Medium-firm - which should I buy?

You’ll probably have noticed that we have recently added a Medium-firm version of our Gx Suspension Pillow to our product range. While we have helped tens of thousands of people to sleep better with the original Medium-soft Gx Suspension Pillow we had a handful of customers contact us to say they loved the pillow but they would like something just a little firmer.

A couple of months of experimentation followed, with some producted testing carried out for us by some of those customers and we have now launched the Medium-firm. If you need help choosing which pillow to go for, this is the technical difference…

The Medium-firm has an extra 100g of the special conjugated hollow-fibre filling (conjugated hollow-fibre works like tiny springs) so it has 600g rather than 500g – it is still lovely and soft but just a little firmer. People often ask if our pillows are like memory foam pillows – the truth is they couldn’t be more different. A memory foam pillow is heavy, dense and can feel quite hard and unforgiving whereas both the Medium-soft and Medium-firm Gx suspension Pillows are as light as a standard hollow-fibre pillow but with the special support that our magic internal ties give.

It’s difficult to recommend which to choose as pillow softness/comfort is so subjective but unless the customer specifically requests a firmer pillow we generally suggest going with Medium-soft and seeing how you get on. The other option is to buy a Twin Pack containing one of each – you can select this from the drop-down box on the Twin Pack product page.

Whichever you chose you’ll find it unlike any other pillow you have tried - both soft and supportive - sounds contradictory but it’s true and you have to try it to believe it.

Sleep well!

PS – if you are wondering about the Gx Support Pillow you can find out the difference between that and the Gx Suspension Pillow on our earlier Blog Post here.

BUT, when it comes to looking your radiant best, there is one thing that outperforms all others in making you look and feel a million dollars – SLEEP.

Sleep - it's even more important than you think!

Sleep - it's even more important than you think!
In his article for the Sunday Times Matthew Walker states “I was once fond of saying: ‘Sleep is the third pillar of good health, alongside diet and exercise.’ I have now changed my tune. Sleep is more than a pillar; it is the foundation on which the other two health bastions sit…”
