Pluto Pillow Review – The Best Pillow On The Planet?

Katie: Hey, guys, it’s Katie from Mattress Clarity. Today I’ve got an out-of-this-world pillow review because we’ve got the Pluto Pillow. That’s right, I like a good space pun. Anyway, this pillow is customized, personalized, just for me. That’s because Pluto gives you a questionnaire to fill out online. You give them all your stats, and they use their fancy algorithm to basically design the pillow that’s perfect for you. Now, there’s about 25 different variations that they work with. I’ll have, basically, a hybrid design. We’re talking a solid foam core and a plush outer cover. Now, if you want to know more about the process and whether or not I like my pillow, hop on the rocket ship, because we’re heading to Pluto. Katie: Before we talk about how they make the pillow for you, I just want to know how many of you are into this, “give your information, have someone create a pillow for you,” idea.

Comment “yes” below if you’re all about it, or “no” if you’re like, “I’m not so sure, I kind of want to see how this goes.” Definitely let me know. I’m curious what you think about it. Now, let’s talk about how they make this pillow. First of all, go to Pluto’s website. They’re going to have a questionnaire for you. It’s very thorough. They ask you your basic stats, your height, your weight.

They’re also going to talk to you about your sleep position, what you like and dislike about the pillow you had before. They leave a box at the end where you can basically give them all the information you want. I do want to mention that their customer service is great. They reached out to me to clarify some things that I put and ended up helping me decide to tweak my answers a little bit. I’m so glad they did. I really like my pillow, so much, in fact, that I want to talk to you more about it right now.

I want to do a deeper dive into this pillow and show you all the design components and the materials that they use. I do want to remind you that your answers to the questionnaire are going to be different than mine, so your individual sleep profile will look different. As a result, your pillow is definitely going to look different than mine, unless we’re the same person, which we’re probably not, so just keep that in mind. They’re all going to have a hybrid pillow in the pillow idea or design involved. They’re all going to have a foam core and a plush outer cover. They’re just going to look a little bit different.

For me, this is a polyethylene polyester blend on the outside. Now, the polyethylene is there to help you sleep cool. It has a coolness to the touch. It’s got a little bit of a slippery feel to it. That’s because I told them I sleep hot. Now, you can access the inner core with this zipper. You can unzip this outer pillow and reach the inner one, which is essentially a piece of solid foam. Mine’s ventilated for breathability. I believe this is a piece of memory foam, although it is really responsive. It’s got almost a little bit of a bounce to it, but it is on the softer, plusher side, and it is on the thinner side. Now, the rest of this pillow has got polyester fibers in here. This is going to give me that feel, that down alternative, but I’m not going to lose any support because I’ve got this foam core. Now, this outer cover is machine washable and dryable, but you’re not going to want to wash the core.

Right now, the pillows just come in one size, and they’re $85. There are so many things I like about the Pluto Pillow. They do a great job of asking you the right questions, to begin with, all the things that they really need to know to help design the right pillow for you. I do think it’s going to be a great fit for those who are looking for that best-of-both-worlds, hybrid feel. You’ve got that solid foam core that’s not going to go flat. It’s going to maintain its shape and give you support. This polyester outer cover, the outer pillow, is soft. It gives you that softer, down alternative feel overall. Of course, it’s nice that you can remove this cover, machine wash and dry it, as well. I can’t speak highly enough about the customer service. They did a great job of contacting me and reaching out when they read my answers to my questions.

They wanted to see if I want to tweak my pillow. You know what? I’m so glad I did, because I got a pillow that I actually really love and sleep with every night. Here are a few things to consider about this pillow. First of all, you’ve got to be on board with this hybrid pillow and the pillow design. Although it is customized to you in terms of firmness and loft height, outer fabric, it is always going to have that solid foam core and this plush outer cover, no matter what. Also, this polyethylene’s cool-to-the-touch cover is a little bit slippery. Sometimes, especially with softer pillowcases, it can slip off at night. If that bothers you, it’s something to think about, as well. Right now, the pillow only comes in one size and it is about $85. That may not be in everyone’s budget. I want to talk to you about how your sleep position affects what kind of pillow you end up with. In the questionnaire, they’re going to ask you what your primary sleep position is and what position you wake up in.

For me, for example, I told them I tend to fall asleep on my side. Sometimes I roll onto my back, but I mostly always wake up on my side. They designed my pillow accordingly. Now, the one nice thing is that you could unzip this pillow, take out that inner foam core, and I could just use that plush outer pillow to sleep on my stomach. It would create a flatter, probably softer, surface.

Overall, I had a really good experience sleeping on my side and my back with this pillow, which is great, because that’s what it was designed for. Well, if you can’t already tell, I really like my customized Pluto Pillow. The whole process was seamless for me. I really appreciated that extra customer service. I also really like the packaging. They gave me a cool box with a little piece of candy in it. Thank you. Also, they gave me a little recap of all my answers and basically reminded me of what I asked for. Now, it does come with the 100 Night Sleep Trial. I would recommend giving it at least two weeks of that sleep trial to try it out, especially if you’re getting a pillow that’s very different from the one that you’ve been sleeping on before.

Now, definitely comment below. Tell me if you’re into this personalized idea or not, and check out my full review. The link is in the description below. Now, I’m going to go take a nap, so I’ll see you later. Thanks. .

Percale vs. Sateen Sheets – What’s the Difference?

Katie Golde: Hey guys, it’s Katie from Mattress Clarity. Today, we’re talking about the difference between percale and sateen sheets. Now, if you’ve been sheet shopping in the last century, you probably have seen these labels, and you may not know what they mean. They refer to different types of weaves. It’s important to know what they are because they affect the overall feel and experience you’re going to have with the sheets.

I’m going to talk about the similarities, the differences, and who I think they’re a good fit for. We’re also going to get an up-close look at both different types of sheets so you can get the best idea on what’s going to be the right one for you. Let’s dive into these sheets. Katie: I do have one quick question for you. I want to know, after you watch this video, if you’re more “Team Percale” or “Team Sateen.” Which one do you think is going to be the best fit for you? Don’t hesitate to comment below. Let me know. Write “Percale” if you like percale sheets, “Sateen” if you like sateen. I’m checking back, and I want to know which one you like.

Personally, I’m Team Percale, but I think that they’re pretty much great across the board. Of course, if any questions come up, leave them there, too. I’m always checking back. I want to talk to you about these sheets. First of all, both percale and sateen sheets are woven with different fabrics from all different manufacturers. You’re going to see them in cotton, bamboo, and linen. What it means is how they’re woven, but the other thing that they have in common is that they’re both used with long-staple fibers.

For example, the ones I have in my lap right here are long-staple cotton. That means is that they’re more durable and they’re softer compared to short-staple cotton, which is not going to hold up as much. If you see these weaves in any fabric just know that they’re going to be synonymous with a higher quality sheet. You can’t go wrong with either. Let’s dive into each one, and I can give you an idea of which one’s going to be the best fit for you. Now, it’s time to learn a little bit about more about the percale sheet. They are very popular. You’ll see them all over the place. In fact, I’m sitting on a set of cotton percale sheets, as well as holding them up right now to give you an idea of the fact that they are everywhere. I want to talk to you about how they’re made first and why that results in the kind of fabric that it does.

Percale, the weave itself is very simple. It’s a one-under/one-over weave. Think about summer camp potholder loom making, very simple basic construction. That results in a crisp, lightweight feel. These are cotton sheets, so bear that in mind. They can come in different fabrics. There’s something called a “Hand-feel” in the sheet world. That means how does it feel on your hand? I’m going to show you. It definitely has that, again, crisp is the best way to describe it.

The cotton rustling is happening. It does drape nicely over my hand, it is really soft. It does hold its own. It’s got its own structure. For a better example, think of a nice hotel sheet or a nicely crisp laundered menswear shirt or womenswear shirt. Again, I hope you’re getting that vibe that I’m trying to share with you. That’s the feeling of percale. It is lightweight. It’s a great fit if you’re in a warm climate, you’re a hot sleeper, you have the night sweats, or something like that. Go with percale. It’s going to be nicer for you but keep in mind that it does tend to wrinkle a little bit easier than other weaves. What you’re going have to do, if you either have an iron on you or take it right out of the dryer when it’s a little bit warm and put it straight on your bed.

What’s the deal with sateen and why is it as popular as percale? A lot of that has to do with the complexity of the weave. A sateen, you’re going to go one-under/two-over, one-under/three-over, even one-under/four-over. Although that might seem very simple in the difference, it creates a very different weave, different fabric overall. As a result, a very different sheet set. These sheets are a little bit thicker. They have a buttery feel to them. I’m going to hold up and do the hand feel for you so that you get this idea here. You can see how it’s draping a little bit closer to my hand. It’s extremely soft, a little bit thicker. Hopefully, you can see here, there’s a little bit of luminosity, a little bit of a sheen. I’d go so far as to say a “Silkier” feel overall. If you think about it, putting that on your bed with your beautiful pillows, your comforter, it’s all going to create such a rich, luxurious feel.

I think that’s so appealing to people. Now, again, I mention that it is a little bit of a thicker fabric overall, so that’s going to be great for those colder months. Maybe you like to sleep cold and so you want that warm sheet set. The sateen is going to be the right fit for you. It is durable. Make sure you follow the care instructions to keep it as long as possible. It may not be as durable as percale, but the nice thing here is that it doesn’t wrinkle as easily. By now, you’ve had a chance to learn a lot about both types of weaves and hopefully have a clearer idea of which is going to be the right fit for you. I want to briefly recap them again. The percale sheets are going to be crisp, lightweight, breathable, and very durable, all great qualities. Remember, they are going to be a little more prone to wrinkles. The sateen sheets are, without a doubt, going to look amazing on your bed. They’re buttery soft, they have that nice sheen to them, but because they’re thicker, they’re going to sleep a little bit warm.

Keep in mind, they might be better for the winter. Now, the weave is just one of the many factors to take into consideration when shopping for sheets. Don’t forget you’ve got fabric, color, thread count, and, of course, you’ve got price. If you want to learn more, check out our YouTube channel Mattress Clarity. You’ve got a whole bunch of sheet stuff going on there. Don’t hesitate to let me know if you’ve got any questions. Now, I’m exhausted.

I’m going to go take a nap on these sheets, so I’ll see you later. .
