Protect-A-Bed recently announced their largest selection of pillow models in market history.

The product line expansion, which encompasses 43 new pillow variations, is aimed to provide the perfect pillow for every sleeper, regardless of body type, pain points, and personal comfort preferences.

“Consumers often go to great lengths to select a mattress that best provides support, firmness, and comfort, then use whatever pillow they happen to have,” said Warrick Bell, VP of Product Development at Protect-A-Bed. “Ideal sleep and satisfaction cannot come from a mattress alone, it’s time for sleepers to have a true choice when it comes to pillows.”

“To really get the most out of a bed, it has to be thought of as a complete system,” added John Rachid, Protect-A-Bed President. “A bed is only effective if the pillow, mattress and bedding work together to achieve the correct support and spinal alignment. By offering a full range of pillow models, we are able to deliver the perfect combination for practically anyone, complement any quality mattress, and help provide pain-free sleep.”

Bell explained that while over 40 pillow choices could be daunting to a consumer, the pillow line expansion actually simplifies choices by leveraging Protect-A-Bed’s interactive point of sales tool: SleepTailor.

Introduced in summer of 2017, SleepTailor takes an image of a bedding shopper, and then guides the shopper through a series of questions that cover dimensions, personal preferences, and other important details. In real time, SleepTailor then combines multiple data points using a proprietary algorithm and biomechanics model to recommend pillows that are tailored specifically to each user for proper alignment and preferences.

“Thanks to SleepTailor, a shopper can feel confident he or she is choosing the right pillow,” James Bell, CEO of Protect-A-Bed said. “They don’t have to think about variables like height, density, and position. It truly removes the guesswork.”
