Front Sleepers are well aware of the difficulties of pillow choice. Too soft, or too much loft, and breathing is quickly obstructed. Front sleeping puts pressure on the neck and spine by forcing the head upwards and away from our natural curvature. The Slim has been designed to be 'just right' for front sleepers, achieved with a peak loft of only 10cm, tapering off in all outside directions. Totally ventilated latex, and additional surface airflow design assist with this remarkable solution for total front sleeping comfort.
Our extensive testing on front sleepers determined that comfortable neck positioning and the abilitiy to breathe properly are best achieved with a slim line pillow. Many front sleeper experience neck pain from excessive loft, and likewise from pushing away pillows and sleeping without them. The challenge was to get it just right, and whilst at RESTED we always recognise that everyone is different, the low loft thickness of the 'slim' and the response of the latex defined this pillow as winning solution for the majority of front sleepers. Combined with the texture of the dual sided surface zoning of the pillow and the sublime luxury of our Equilibrium cover, this pillow is a 'solution' that we believe in. The pillow is also suitable for side and back sleeping but only to smaller than average sized men and women who have a known preference for low loft pillows.

Differentiating the two sides of a pillow allows the user the final 'tweak' on a daily basis to ensure that your pillow is optimised for you. Whether you prefer a smooth flat feel, or a gently contoured feel is down to you, and these pillows recognise that to have choice is a performance advancement.
Dunlop Latex is the long established industry standard for quality latex manufacture. We utlitise it in our pillows because it has very different feel to Talalay Latex, that is through our research, more commonly found to be preferred for pillow use. It is less bouncy, and firmer than Talalay, but provides the support, quick response, and resilience to make it a fantastic material for your 'mattress of the head'. In addition as a material, it is more easily manipulated to allow us to create our signature shapes and designs which accentuate your personal comfort and the uniqueness of our pillows. Dunlop latex is well known for its durability, breathability, and of course that is naturally hypoallergenic, and antimicrobial.
We set ourselves a defined challenge. To develop a pillow that would make you sleep better. Grounded in science and combined with luxury.
Unique to the UK, the Equilibrium pillow is your key to enhanced sleep quality.
Choosing the right pillow is one of the most important aspects of creating the best possible sleep for you. It is not only a matter of comfort preference; the right pillow also depends on what position you most commonly sleep in, and the metrics of your individual sizing, particularly neck length and shoulder width. When we assist our clients in finding the right pillow, achieving spinal alignment is paramount, as is maximising your airflow for healthy comfortable sleep. Front sleeping is the most awkward of sleeping positions, and in relation to sleep posture and back care, it is the most difficult to deal with. There are two key aspects to assisting front sleeping for those who acknowledge it as their most comfortable sleep position. Firstly to ensure that the pillow does not force the head upwards, placing stress upon the neck and spine. A slim pillow is the most likely way to achieve this effectively. Secondly, to ensure that the pillow allows you to breathe. Many front sleepers find that they have to sleep ‘at the edge’ of the pillow, otherwise it would be impossible to breathe, so a front sleeper benefits from pillows that don’t bulk up around the indentation of your head. The Slim Equilibrium has been designed to do both of these things, and subject to your specific metrics and comfort preferences, it is an excellent solution for most front sleepers.
There is a lot of terminology banded around regarding the 'allergen' performance of mattresses. What we know is this: dust mites like to live in warm dark places, in moisture filled, closed environments. Latex mattresses afford no such opportunity, and neither do truly ventilated mattresses. Hypo-allergenic means 'less allergen likely than others', which is the truth of the matter and why we use that statement for mattresses to which it applies. In addition to a materials specific properties and the ventilation of mattresses to reduce allergens, most of our mattresses also have removable washable covers, which is a significant step in terms of being able to regularly wash away any dust, skin cells or allergens that are either airborne or may accumulate through your use of the bed.
