91 Reviews Mentioning: support

“Support” is one of the most commonly-used terms when customers review their Hullo pillows. Hulo’s firm, yet adjustable shape allows you to position your head and neck and it will stay there throughout the night as you sleep. Below are reviews that describe the support provided by Hullo.

Wish I had Tried this Sooner!

Love my Hullo. Unlike any other pillow I’ve tried, I can shape it just to the right height and comfort, and then it STAYS PUT. My head doesn’t sink in gradually, and I finally can get the support I need as a side sleeper, and have it stay put all night. I wouldn’t recommend this for back sleepers, but for me it has been the pillow I have always needed but never had. I also love that the filling level can be adjusted, and that the filling contents are compostable if i ever need to replace them—so tired of all the plastic filled pillows.

Also, for anyone wondering about size, I got the small, and I’m super glad I did. It’s just the right size, and supports my head perfectly without having a lot of extra pillow sticking out everywhere. Standard size pillows would always get in the way of where i wanted to put my arms when side sleeping, but the small doesn’t have this problem. I also think the standard size would be harder to adjust and heavier to move around, but the small is perfect. Only downside is it is harder to find pillow cases for, but it fits pretty well sideways in a standard size pillow case with the empty half of the pillow case tucked under the pillow.

I Use Just One Pillow Now and Don’t Have to Flip It

It did take a few days to adjust to the Hullo pillow. Now I use just one Hullo pillow after using 2 pillows for years. It doesn’t get hot (haven’t tried it through a summer yet) and the support is great. An unexpected benefit from the Hullo is that it provides wonderful back support when I sit up in bed (I put a big throw pillow on top of the Hullo for my head).

One of the Best Purchases I’ve Ever Made

This pillow is exactly what I wanted. It’s a firm and comfortable support I look forward to every night. I’m buying a smaller one for travel because I love this so much.

FINALLY Feel Supported at Night!

I had to remove a decent amount of stuffing to get to my own personal support level, but I love that I had the option to do that! I’m all over the place at night and this thing goes where I tell it too and it STAYS there.

Goodbye Stiff Neck

I was waking up with a stiff neck more and more. Did lots of research and settled on the Hullo. Glad I did. It’s supportive but also incredibly comfortable. I also love the weight.

Where Has This Pillow Been All My Life?

This pillow solves several issues for me. It is comfortable. When I lay on the pillow the buckwheat kernels adjust to my head and neck to provide support all night. I am allergic to feather pillows. Like foam pillows, they both compress and need adjusting through the night. Thank you, hullo, for making a great pillow.

Pleased in 87144

I’ve tried several pillow types to accommodate for my new side sleeping method. All others flatten and don’t hold my head stable. 1st night with Hullo solved my pillow issues.

Finally a Pillow That Holds Up My Head!

It’s oddly comfortable. I added some hulls that Hullo sent to make it a little thicker. It’s the best thing that’s happened to my neck in a while.

Just Wow… but Give It Time!

After a week I was ready to send this pillow back, my neck felt stiff and sore-ish, (not bad, but not awesome) but I REALLY liked that it doesn’t sleep hot!! So I decided I’d give it another week or two and I’m glad I did! I think my body, neck & spine needed time re-adjust to being PROPERLY aligned while I slept. It really does support my head a neck perfectly and keeps it shape and doesn’t smooshe down or lose its shape!! At all!  No need to fold and stuff pillows under your head or shoulders when you are a side sleeper!!  It also has a nice, earthy scent. Weird, I know!  The only negative I have with this pillow is that it’s heavy, which is unavoidable based on materials used!  It’s not a big deal, but I can’t hold it under my chin when I put a clean pillowcase on!!  Ha ha!

The BEST, Jerry, the BEST

I have been on an epic quest for years in search of the perfect pillow and I finally found it with Hullo. It’s supportive! It’s flexible! My nose doesn’t sink in and smother me in my sleep! Putting a pillowcase on it is similar to trying to wrestle an alligator, but it’s totally worth it. Currently recommending it to everyone and am so excited I finally found my pillow soulmate.

Sleep On It

The Hullo pillow is comfortable and provides better support than the synthetic filling pillows I’ve used in the past. I have’t used it through the summer yet, but it seems to stay cool without having to turn it over constantly. It’s definitely noisier than other pillows but that hasn’t been an issue now that I’ve gotten used to it. The only downside I’ve found is that since it’s essentially a sack of buckwheat hulls it can’t be neatly propped up against a headboard and it can look lumpy if you don’t flatten it out. Those are entirely aesthetic issues though and only matter if you’re particular about making your bed.

Love My Pillow

I’d never been happy with a pillow before discovering this. They were all too soft and too bouncy. The buckwheat hull pillow is just right. It’s supportive but malleable, and I like the rustling, crunchy sound.

Thanks, Hullo!

Love It

This small pillow is perfect for me. I sleep on my side and on my back and this pillow provides the right amount of support for constant switching. I also like the noise the buckwheat pillow makes when moved. Wish I got it a long time ago.

1st thought…buckwheat pillow?…SOUNDS WEIRD…after 1st night…OMG I LOVE THIS THING!

OK let me start by saying I’ve never even considered a buckwheat pillow before.  I’ve either used foam or feather pillows in the past. But there is a point after so many nights of wrestling with your pillow you get desperate and are willing to try anything.

COST:
I would not call the buckwheat pillows from “hullo” cheap and I’m sure you can find bargain pillows online.  That being said my personal option is if I’m trying something different I want to try the best and get the clearest idea if it’s right for me.

QUALITY:
The quality of material from “hullo” is wonderful.  I don’t have any other buckwheat pillows to compare but I would say without question I’m totally satisfied with what they sell and can’t think of anything else I would want or expect.

FIRST NIGHT:
From my research on buckwheat pillows I had expected it to be a bit loud.  This is small hulls right next to your ear after all. But I have to say it really isn’t that loud and one thing to remember is it only makes noice when your moving around on your pillow not when your resting still.  That leads me to my biggest revelation with this pillow. After only a few minutes I realized…with a buckwheat pillow you literally are able to “sculpt” a custom pillow for your head every time you use it. With a buckwheat pillow every time you move you get a whole new pillow custom to you.

After the first night my wife said my snoring was almost zero. Everyone’s experience is obviously different but lets just say I was impressed…VERY impressed after the first night.

COMPLAINTS:
We don’t live in a perfect world and most things in life can be improved on.  In the case of the Standard 20″ × 26″ Bed Pillow I purchased from “hullo” I would say only one thing stands out as needing improvement.  The amount of buckwheat they provide in their pillows.  Don’t get me wrong it’s not like they rip you off or anything on the fill amount.  And yes, every customer is likely to have a slightly different amount of “ideal” fill.  All I’m saying is I wish they would provide you MAX filled pillows and explain to the user that you will likely need to remove some to reach your ideal fill. This would save your customers the extra $50 cost required for extra buckwheat filling.  Then again it’s a business and profit is required.

Just saying….hullo…if your reading this…and let’s be honest it’s a review on your own site…your reading it…please just consider erring on the side of caution and put more filling in your pillows:)

LAST WORDS:
Did I spend $150 (including my purchase of extra fill) on one pillow?  Yes I did…and I would do it again in a second!  I love my hullo pillow…enough to even write a lengthy review praising it.

Greatest Pillow

Greatest comfort sleep pillow I have ever owned or used! A bit on the heavy side (not a discouraging comment). I have sleep issues, sleep on my side, and the position of my head and neck need full support. This pillow provides that and allows more sound restful sleep. I enjoy this pillow. Thank You

Over 20 Years

I have used a buckwheat pillow for over 20 years! I was glad to find your site as my pillow had lost a lot of its fullness over time! hard to go back to any other kind of pillow! This pillow gives me the support where I need it!

Thank You Hullo

I love my Hullo pillow. It was a rather expensive but well purchased pillow, worth its weight in gold.   I have been having severe neck and shoulder pain.  It was so bad that I was actually screaming.  My neck is degenerative, and I had a huge knot across my shoulders. My doctor ended up putting me on muscle relaxers. I knew I needed more neck support for when I slept.  I have looked at so many different pillows online trying to figure out the one that I thought would suit my needs. I have several friends that have tried buckwheat pillows but did not care for them. What my friends didn’t tell me or couldn’t tell me which which buckwheat pillow they tried. One of my friends claimed about how noisy it was. After reading all the reviews and taking weeks and maybe a number of months, I decided to break down and get the Hullo pillow It was the best pillow purchase I have ever made. The first thing I did when I got it, was listen for the noise that my friends had complained about. This pillow had minimal noise. There’s no smell or odor. The casement for the buckwheat is superb. When I got my buckwheat pillow i opened it up because I wanted to actually feel buckwheat. It really surprised me because it is so soft. When I finally laid down on it it was like instant relief and support for my neck. The first night I slept on it my body did not move at all. Between my Hullo pillow and my weighted blanket, I have the best sleep experience. I also have Tourette’s syndrome, so this has been the a huge help. TS has caused much of my neck problems.  Thank you Hullo for helping me.

Won’t Sleep Without My Hullo!

From the night I received my Hullo, my sleep routine was forever changed! I’m a small, petite individual, so I opted for the smaller sized pillow for my first test run, and has found that this size works perfectly for me. I had no issue, or adjustment period as some reviews mentioned – I wasn’t bothered at all by the light sound of the buckwheat. The Hullo pillow truly cradles my neck. I create a little indent, then nestle in for a fabulous night’s sleep. I’ve tried a memory foam pillow, and botanical latex pillows that are a healthier version supposed to mimic down pillows. My Hullo is by far the most supportive for my neck, out of all pillows I’ve tried.

This felt like such a quality purchase. The packaging was modern, clean, and used an absolute minimum amount of plastic, just shielding the pillow itself. I also love supporting businesses who care about where they source materials from, create clean products for consumers, and who fully produce & operate in the US. I just purchased a Hullo for my mom for her birthday. I’m so happy with my purchase. Thanks Hullo!

Wanted It to Work for Me

I have had chronic neck pain for years and have been on the search for a supportive pillow for my neck and shoulders for about a year now. I put in probably 2 months using this pillow. I used it for about a month and when I continuously was waking up all night and in the morning with neck pain, I thought it was because I needed it to be firmer because throughout the night the hulls would move around so my neck wouldnt be supported. So I bought more hulls from the site. I added a decent amount to make it firm but it I was still waking up in pain. I had to switch to an old pillow actually because it was putting my neck and shoulders in worse pain than before. So I’m still on the search! I really wanted to love this pillow and raved about it before getting it. Even though it didn’t work out for me the quality of this pillow is amazing and would recommend it to a friend who may not have serious neck pain like me. On to the next!

Best Night’s Sleep

When buckwheat pillows came out years ago I had one and I loved it. But, I had to put it in a pillow protector because it was just dirty dust. That was one of the cheap ones, the hulls were not washed. I didn’t know much about these pillows back then. Oh how I hated to put this much money out on new pillows, but I bought one at a time. I would not give up my pillow. I had neck surgery and and the Hullo pillow  gives me support right where I need it. These buckwheat hulls are washed there isn’t anything on the inside of my pillow case. I can’t believe I had that other one. But one of the features that I love about this pillow also is the very good zipper and material that you use on this pillow. I can’t say enough. I’m very pleased and now that I have two I’m even super pleased.

I Love This Pillow

I can not get enough of this pillow! I was interested in getting one after going through a few days of a bad neck cramp (caused by sleeping poorly on a standard pillow.) I instantly fell in love with my Hullo. This pillow is supportive and doesn’t smoosh down over time. It’s even comfy when I am sleeping on my side.

I have already recommended this pillow to two other people who have bought them, and I won’t stop raving about them. Thank you for giving me a great solution to my very cranky neck 🙂

Took a While to Feel Normal

I did not fall in love with my Hullo on day 1, but I really do like it now. I had to remove at least half of the buckwheat hulls that it came with, it was much too full for my needs as a back sleeper (I prefer a relatively thin pillow). I like that it’s very adjustable – I prefer support right under my neck and most pillows don’t provide any so my head falls forward. Hullo is great because you can squish it/shape it just right and then it’s set. My only complaint is that re-adjusting it in the middle of the night can be kind of loud and sometimes wakes up my partner. The sound is similar to shifting around sand in a bag but a bit louder – it’s not unpleasant sounding, just louder than I expected.

Finally!

I have tried so many pillows and I FINALLY found a GREAT one!  I searched for a pillow that would not “sink” when I slept, I tried so many and honestly I was about to give up.  I found Hullo by searching for “firm pillows”, read the description and took a chance.  So glad I did because this pillow is a dream!
