Hi, everyone! My name is Gretchen Gatan and if you’re new here, I’m a writer and managing editor from Metro Manila, Philippines. Welcome to Greta’s Junkyard, a dumpsite of my favorite things! These include articles that fall under beauty, lifestyle, travel, home, and more. If you’ve stumbled upon this article, then you must be curious to know more about the Tempur Original Pillow.
But first—a quick introduction!
Besides being a writer and editor, I’m a millennial wife, fur parent, and first-time mom. My husband Cayo and I moved into our forever home, the #FraggyHome, early in 2021 before finding out we were pregnant with our daughter Cambria.
I’m not sure when exactly it started. But Cayo and I were recently talking about how when we reached a certain age (we’re both in our 30s), we started paying a premium in exchange for comfort. From the hotels that we book whenever we travel to the items we invest in for our home, we don’t mind paying a bit more if it means getting back quality and convenience.
This is especially true for our bedroom and everything inside it. Our bedroom is our sanctuary, which is why I made it a priority to make it a safe space where I can easily rest and find solace. Part of this is investing in a sturdy bed, premium mattress, and bamboo sheets. Recently, we also upgraded our pillows to the Tempur Original Pillow!
Visiting their store in Power Plant Mall
During one weekend, we visited Focus Store in Power Plant Mall, which carries a variety of premium brands under three categories: Cook, Clean, and Sleep—including Tempur. The store is both digital and experiential, so you can try the different products to see if it’s something you’d like to invest in.
Apart from comparing Tempur’s pillows, I got to do the Tempur Mattress Wine Glass Challenge! You can watch the full video on my IG Reels.
What makes Tempur so great?
It all started with a mattress like no other. In the 70s, scientists developed a temperature-sensitive material to absorb the pressure that astronauts experienced during lift-off. Tempur then spent decades perfecting its material to use in its sleep products. These all actively adapt to the weight, warmth, and movement of every individual. To this day, they stand alone as the only material that NASA recognizes!
In turn, there are so many benefits. It can help lessen snoring, prevent muscle tension, allow proper blood circulation, and give your body the proper alignment while you sleep. Moreover, it rejuvenates and calms your muscles—so you wake up feeling energized the next day!
Tempur understands that the way you sleep is as unique as you are, so finding the right mattress, pillow, or bed system is a must. Their sleep experts, designers, and engineers have spent decades innovating to create the best night’s sleep possible. Additionally, they believe this can only happen with products that are supportive, comfortable, and tailored.
Our Tempur Original Pillow with SmartCool Technology
As mentioned, we upgraded our bed’s pillows to the Original Pillow with SmartCool Technology. It helps align the spine when sleeping on your back or side. It conforms to your natural curvature to let neck and shoulder muscles relax fully to alleviate any discomfort, too.
The Original Pillow comes in two sizes: Queen Medium and Queen Large. What makes it different is that in 1991, their team of sleep experts collaborated with a chiropractor to create an ergonomically shaped design. Now, it’s an icon. While other brands have attempted to copy their design, none of them make it with the unique Tempur Material.
We’ve only been using it for several nights and we already feel the difference in the quality of our sleep. This is so important for us as first-time parents who work from home and have no nanny to assist in taking care of Cambria. We always need to feel well-rested and energized so we don’t feel burned out. And Tempur has definitely helped with that.
Apart from the Original Pillow, we got the Tempur Lumbar Support to use in our home office since we sit practically the whole day. It fits perfectly to the curve of the spine and relieves pressure from sitting for too long! It has been so helpful as well.
