John Cotton Rebound Pillows
Advantages: Decent quality, comfortable and bounce back easily.
Buying pillows is not something I do very often, but when I do, I have never been tempted into buying cheap ones as have found it to be false economy in the past. The reason being that I have found cheap pillows have gone flat and lost their bounce fairly quickly and I am certainly not a fan of flat pillows.
I also personally don't like a firm pillow, I prefer something which is neither firm nor really soft, but is comfortable enough to sink into whilst still providing support.
I bought some rebound pillows from BHS a few years back and had been happy with them, they didn't flatten when you were lying on them and had a 'bounce back' action. They lasted well but were quite expensive, so when I saw some rebound pillows by John Cotton last year on sale in my local Morrisons at a far cheaper price of £6 for two, I decided to give them a try. At £6 it was a risk I was prepared to take as if they turned out to be poor quality then I hadn't wasted a lot of money.
To be honest, they looked to be of good quailty in the packaging and I had fairly high hopes that I had indeed found a bargain.
The pillows have a spiral hollowfibre filling, which is a non-allergenic material constructed from light siliconised spirals. The pillows are also machine washable at 40 C, however, I have never had much luck when attempting to wash a pillow in the washing machine and have found it near impossible to get them back into shape afterwards. I was told you can achieve a better result if you take them to a launderette and use the larger machines, but I don't have a launderette near me plus I don't have a lot of spare time, so therefore after ruining pillows in my washing machine, I have simply gone out and bought more. Because of this, if I can find decent pillows at a bargain price then I'm happy and I was hoping these John Cotton pillows would be exactly that.
After nearly a year of use, I can honestly say I haven't been disappointed with these rebound pillows. I place pillow protectors on top of them before popping them into pillow cases and find this protects the pillow well.
When I lie on the pillow, I sink into it but it also provides the support I require and does not flatten during the night and I am comfortable all night long. A simple plump of the pillow when making the bed is all that is needed to totally fluff it back up totally on a morning.
I really cannot find anything negative to say about these pillows, they provide the rebound action that is promised and are of good quality with no flaws or faults.
I haven't attempted to wash them yet, but if they are ruined when I do, then I won't be too bothered about this given the price I paid. In fact, I have just bought another pair of these rebound pillows in my local Morrisons store again to keep as spare, as they are currently priced at just £5 for two pillows, which I think is a good bargain.
I am happy to recommend John Cotton Rebound Pillows, they are well worth the money I have paid for them.
Summary: Decent pillows at a bargain price.
