The Emma brand has been growing rapidly and gaining momentum with the help of online exposure, awards and press. There is no wonder why they are now extending their product portfolio and introducing a new pillow to customers - the Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow which was once called the Emma Cloud Pillow.
The Premium Microfibre Pillow from Emma follows a similar design to their Emma Original Pillow however instead of incorporating memory foam in the pillow they have opted for a plumper and cooler pillow design.
In this Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow Review, we will uncover the layers and materials as well as point out if it's worth consideration or not.
The Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow follows a unique adjustable design. The design consists of two Inner layers which can be removed to adjust the height and firmness of the overall pillow.
Cooling pillows will all have their unique selling point, whether that be the gel layer, the fabric used or air vents incorporated. In the case of the Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow, it is its 'airy' internals and breathable 'UltraDry' cover.
Plump and airy pillows such as the Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow can be great alternatives to duck or goose down pillows. It is a common belief that synthetic pillows are better for those prone to allergies or asthma. However, there is little evidence to support this.
For added practicality, you can find the Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow and all inner pillow layers are machine washable (up to 60 °C). You may also tumble dry it however, you will have to do so on a low setting.
Emma Premium Microfibre Cover
The cover is made completely from polyester. Polyester offers good flexibility, is durable, wrinkle-free and non-iron. These properties make it a desirable material to use as pillowcases.
An added benefit of the 'UltraDry' cover (as Emma describe it) is it's also quick-drying, this helps to keep your sleeping environment clean and hygienic.
The cover is also padded which adds additional comfort and acts as a transition layer from the outer cover to the inner layers.
The Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow consists of two siliconised micro elastic fibre polyester inner pillow layers :
- The flat layer
- The bulky layer
The bulky layer is stuffed with a large amount of microfibre filling, giving it its fullness and overall support. The lighter layer is similar in materials used however is made to be thinner.
Support & Comfort
Every sleeper has their own preferences and unique sleeping styles. The Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow is designed to suit the majority of sleeping positions and comfort preferences.
The Emma Premium Microfibre Pillow is classified as 'soft', however, by incorporating two inner pillow layers you can adjust the support and overall comfort. Pillows for side sleepers should help elevate your head and promote an aligned spine. By using both layers you should receive adequate support, depending on your stature. For those sleeping on your back or stomach, you would need a low profile pillow or even no pillow.
There is no doubt that having the ability to alter the overall height of a pillow is an advantage, you will just have to experiment to see what combination works best for you.
If you are used to or prefer firm pillows, then the Premium Microfibre Pillow from Emma may not be suitable.

This gives you months to try it out at home and decide for yourself if it is worth keeping or returning. This by the way is the same trial they offer on their popular Emma Original Mattress.
This takes away the risk you may face when purchasing a new pillow that may not be right for you.
