105 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.

Firm and Supportive

This pillow usually provides all the support for my neck that I need. As time goes on I think about adding more hulls, though. On occasion, the pillow is too hard for me and I accept the lack of support in a softer pillow instead. Except for when I have a headache, this pillow is the best of both worlds. I never did expect a pillow to be so loud though!

I would recommend Hullo to a friend.

Best Pillow Ever

Both my husband and I are instantly in love!  We are people that use totally different kinds of pillows too – I’ve always been a thin or feather girl he likes his more bulky and supportive but after one sleep we both fell in love with this pillow!

Give It Time…

After removing 10 or 12 cups of hulls and giving it a little time to get used to the swishing noise when you manipulate the pillow, I find it very comfortable.

It has made my transition to tolerating CPAP easier as the pillow is extremely moldable, yet supportive and doesn’t contribute to mask leaks or it being pulled off.

Life Changing!

I love how cool and supportive Hullo is. I am now a person who travels with their pillow, sleeping on anything else just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Top-Tier Pillow

The best neck support that I’ve found yet (and I’ve tried A LOT of pillows). The buckwheat fill makes the pillow endlessly adjustable, cool, and supportive. The materials are consistently high quality. Note that if you share a bed the gentle rustle of the buckwheat fill can rouse a very light sleeper.

Ideal Pillow For Me Now

I have never been fussy about pillows, but in recent months, I started waking up with pronounced neck pain. I tried Hullo for several weeks and the pain has gone away. I love the way Hullo holds its shape, conforms to my head, and supports my neck. Very simple. Very effective.

Basically as Advertised, Which is Good

I’ve had my buckwheat pillow for about 5 months now. You have to add or remove material a few times to get the balance right, but it’s worth it.

Things people complain about, but I don’t find bad:

Smell – detectable but not intrusive at all.
Noise – a bit annoying for major adjustments/the first of the night, but for minor adjustments or just while your heads on it, not bad at all.
Weight – definitely heavier than I expected, but I kind of like that.

Things people say are good, but I think aren’t perfect:

Shape holding – pretty good, but tossing/turning will change it minorly throughout the night.
Temperature – it’s not actively cool to the touch, but I think only once has it gotten “too warm” in 5 months.

I think those imperfect properties are probably inherent to a buckwheat pillow, and not a fault of Hullo in particular. I’m overall very satisfied with it.

Finally Found the Perfect Pillow

I love this pillow. I was initially very hesitant because of the cost. I have been trying to find a pillow that will work for me for years. I am a side sleeper. Recently, I took up rock climbing which caused my upper body and neck to be sore frequently. This made a good night sleep for recovery imperative.  My regular pillow was just not cutting it anymore. I was waking up in the morning with horrible neck and shoulder pain that was resulting in headaches. As soon as I switched to the Hullo pillow the pain subsided. It was a little different the first few nights, but I adjusted quickly. I have since tried my husband’s “regular” pillow and cannot stand it anymore. The Hullo conforms to my head and then supports my neck throughout the night. The “regular” pillow just goes flat and my neck is left sore. Very much worth the price. It is high quality and I forsee it lasting me a long time. Some people comment they do not like the smell. I actually find it quite pleasent. I would highly recommend this pillow.

Great Neck Support

I bought the small buckwheat pillow and absolutely love it. I removed some of the buckwheat – sleep with my upper body elevated and needed a small supportive pillow. BINGO.  The Hullo pillow is perfect. I can adjust it to support my neck and yet it doesn’t further raise my head. I was concerned at first about the noise the buckwheat makes when you sleep on it but it was never an issue. I highly recommend this pillow.

Provides Needed Support

I am not a hard pillow type of person but this pillow provides much needed support while still being comfortable. I love that I can adjust it, as needed, around my shoulders.

Great Supportive Pillow

I replaced a +25 year old buckwheat pillow (not a Hullo) that had become rather flat.  The new Hullo is larger and nicely full.  I have tried many different pillows over the years and find the buckwheat pillows provide the right amount of adjustability whether side or back sleeping.  Other pillows have left me with a sore neck or back and frequent waking to adjust the pillow.  With the Hullo I can create a hollow for my head with the right amount of support under my neck to avoid the previous painful mornings.  Love it!

Adjustable Support

I am very happy with my buckwheat pillow. I am a back sleeper and appreciate being able to shape the pillow to support my neck.  I took out some of the buckwheat filling but will save it for possibly replacing. The only draw back to the pillow is the weight. I bought the full size pillow so that it matches other pillows on my bed and it is heavy but worth it for the comfort. I would recommend this pillow.

Awesome Pillow!

I have tried dozens of pillows, from the cheapest to the most expensive. Every single one was a serious disappointment, especially the expensive ones because who wants to pay a lot for something that’s awful? I was beyond desperate. Why…WHY is it so impossible to make a firm pillow?? My head sunk to the mattress with every pillow I tried. So, not only no support, but the ends would pop up around my face. Uncomfortable and annoying! I stacked them…two, three, even four. That just made it annoying in layers.

I came across your product and thought it couldn’t hurt to try one more. I cannot possibly express how happy I am that I tried a Hullo Pillow. It’s a dream come true. I am not exaggerating. I had a bit of doubt that I’d like it when the noise of the hulls was mentioned. I should not have hesitated for a second. It’s very quiet, certainly doesn’t wake me up when I move during the night, and was very easy for me to get used to as I fall asleep.

Anyone struggling to find a good, firm pillow needs to try a Hullo. I have told every single person I know about this amazing pillow. I’ve even made a few people lay on it to see how great it is.

I am unable to thank you enough for making this pillow. I’m definitely going to buy more, for each side of the bed and for the couch, as I fall asleep there a lot.

Thank you,
Lisa Pence

Can’t Believe I’m Sleeping on Buckwheat but I Love It

I love this pillow. Can’t believe I took the plunge but I really love it. I was worried it would be “noisy”, it’s not.

I don’t have to do weird things at night or figure out where to put my hand or tuck the pillow under my head “just so” anymore. Also, it’s great for reading in bed because it doesn’t “collapse” like other pillows do.

I didn’t want to spent the $ on the King size pillow so I’m using a standard on my King size bed and that’s fine. Plus the larger pillow would’ve been super heavy.

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!
