A good quality, durable, business-like pillow. It delivers on its promises.
For me, the Otty deluxe pillow feels like a ‘corporate’ pillow – smart and supportive with clear branding. Over the last few years, we have seen many retailers offer memory foam pillows to complement their ‘mattress in a box’ offerings and Otty is one of these. Otty was established by a young entrepreneur, looking for a great night sleep after a busy day at the office and you can see this influence on the Otty pillow which has a modern design.
The soft white polyester outer cover is well made and has a grey viscose band around the middle which I believe offers extra breathability, however it does tend to make my hair static! Not the best look in the morning. It is smart though and rather like the fabric on an office chair. The cover can be unzipped and machine washed at 40 degrees which is great if you don’t want to use an extra pillow case and also for allergy sufferers. As is the blue memory foam filling which has been infused with a cool gel to provide a cooler sleeping surface for your head, reducing tossing and turning in the night.
Soft and squidgy, this pillow is of medium depth and fits in a standard pillow case. However, if you have a white pillow case, bear in mind, the bold ‘Otty’ logo may show through. A pillow protector could hide this though? The pillow offers medium support for memory foam which I personally prefer as a side sleeper, as it moulds my head rather than being too firm and giving me neckache. That said, I am not currently suffering from any neck or back pain so do not have personal experience but I understand that the air comfort gel memory foam filling has been specifically designed to reduce pressure on the neck and spine to help relieve stiffness and soreness.
Reasonably priced for a memory foam pillow at £54.99, The Otty Deluxe also comes with a 3 year guarantee. It has been nominated Winner of a Which Best Buy award this year and I would recommend it as a good option for a side sleeper looking for a memory foam pillow. The pillow has also been FIRA tested meaning it meets all relevant industry standards for safety an durability.
