Product Review and Giveaway: Total Pillow

Total Pillow
I recently had the opportunity to review a product called the Total Pillow.  I decided to do this review because I figured that no one is more qualified to review a versatile pillow than a  mom who's eight months pregnant!

Here's some general information about the Total Pillow.
VERSATILE TRANSFORMING PILLOW Cradles you with Comfort While Asleep and Awake



Most people spend approximately one-third of their lives asleep on their pillow, however the new Total Pillow has uses for the two-thirds of time spent awake.


There are pillows for all types of issues but no one pillow that bridges all conditions, until now. The Total Pillow™ is for use overnight, on the couch, sitting at your desk, driving, while on a plane or train, in college dorms, or just while watching television. This donut-shaped pillow transforms in just seconds to more than five supportive shapes for customized relief. The patent pending locking technology enables the Total Pillow to support the neck, lower back, ankles and knees.


"Consumers own many different pillows for different applications, identifying the need for a multipurpose pillow solution." said Steve Heroux, CEO of Hampton Direct. "The Total Pillow transforms into five different shapes to answer a wide range of conditions."


The Total Pillow's ergonomic design allows your body to be cradled in support whether you're a side sleeper and like support between your knees and/or ankles or are a frequent traveler. It's also great for the businessperson, who needs lumbar support for the long periods of time spent seated.


Available for $19.99, The Total Pillow can be ordered online at www.buytotalpillow.com.


Hampton Direct, Inc. is a leading international importer and distributor of consumer products. The Vermont-based company's offerings include common household problem solving products that includes the As Seen On TV Wonder Hanger®, Twin Draft Guard® and Total Pillow®.

I've been using the Total Pillow for the past week or two, both in bed for my head and between my knees when sleeping on my side.  I also experimented to see how it would work as a neck pillow when sitting up.

One of the things I liked about the Total Pillow include the fact that it can mutate to many different shapes.  It was suprisingly comfortable to use it as a regular sleeping pillow with my neck cradled in the "arc" of the pillow bent in half. 

On the negative side, I thought the pillow was a little bit too firm for my comfort.  I would have appreciated a little more "give."  It was also a little small for using between my knees, at least as a large pregnant woman.  Not pregnant it might be the perfect size.

The Total Pillow costs $19.95 + packaging and handling.  I think it would be a really good purchse for someone who travels or commutes a lot.  I could see it coming in really handy for the bus or airplane and then to supplement hotel pillows.   I also have a similar lumbar cushion for driving, and the Total Pillow would work for that as well.

  1. I like the fact that the total pillow is so portable. Often I spend a lot of time in the car waiting for the kids. It would be nice to have something I can take with me to lay my head back on to release some neck tension.

  4. I like that it's small enough to be portable, but big enough to actually use as a pillow.
