Let's Talk About the Pillow Dance


You sleep on a throne of pillows! 
Imagine this scene.

You're about to go to bed. You have a perfect mattress, squishy in all the right places and firm in all the others. Your blanket keeps you at that juuuuust right temperature and also protects your feet from the monster that hides under the bed. What? You have to cover your feet or the monster will get you. We all know this. Anyhow, you tuck yourself in, roll over onto your side, your head hits the lovely down-stuffed pillow, and--

--nope. Not working. The pillow all but collapsed and now your neck hurts a bit. So you prop yourself up on one elbow, grab the second pillow, and shove it under the first. The second pillow is one of those fancy poly-fill jobbies you got at the mall department store because it promised premium comfort. It ought to help, right? Right. You slide down into the bed again, get settled again, relax your head into the pillow and--

--oh, come on. Too high now? Yeah. It feels like your head is jammed against your shoulder. Also, your head sank into the down pillow so that part of the pillow covers your nose. So you may suffocate as well. That would be a terrible way to go, wouldn't it?

Readjustment time. You sit up all the way and notice, thanks to a glance at your clock, that you've been at this far longer than you ever wanted. But you're sure you have the solution. Two down pillows! That's the ticket! Away goes the pricey premium pillow and into the game comes the second down-stuffed sack of sleepy satisfaction! You give them both a good fluffing, trying not to sneeze as an errant feather runs halfway up your nose, situate them just so, slide back into prime sleeping position and--

--well, you get the idea. You're doing the Pillow Dance -- the same dance many of us have done night after night, in search of that perfect comfortable sleeping position. If you sleep on your side (and according to a survey a few years ago by the company Anna Linens, that's 74 percent of us) you know how tough it is to get the pillows just right. You, like many of us, have probably tried a combination of pillows and have at least two, if not 3 or 4 pillows on or near your bed, ready for nighttime deployment.

But it never works the same way twice, does it? You may find that sweet spot once, but the next night? It's as elusive as the memories of that wonderful dream that involved an all-you-can-eat chocolate ice cream restaurant and several large sacks of found money.

The Pillow Dance is exactly the reason My Butterfly Pillow exists. We got tired of tossing and turning, or having pillows drop our heads too low or jack it up too high. We got tired of the Pillow Dance and we think you're tired of it, too.

Come visit us in the comments and tell us about your own Pillow Dance! Let's see if we can be a help to you! We're ready!
