In your pillow search, two popular brands may pop up: Beckham Luxury Linens and Casper.
The former is an Amazon favorite, with 13,000-plus reviews and an average of 4.5 stars. The latter is a leading mattress-in-a-box company. One difference you might notice right away when comparing the Beckham Luxury Linens Hotel Collection pillow and Casper Original Pillow is price.
The Beckham price is $40 for two standard-size pillows, and the Casper costs $60 for one standard-size pillow, or three times as much as the Beckham if you buy two. (CR tests standard-size pillows because they’re the most commonly purchased size.
But don’t let the prices influence your choice: “You can’t judge a pillow by materials or price tag,” says Chris Regan, CR’s project leader who oversees our pillow testing. “Though pillows might have the same materials, some flatten out a lot faster and aren’t as supportive over time.”
Both pillow manufacturers offer a full refund within a trial period—with Casper, you have 100 days to try out the pillow; with the Beckham, you have 30 days. And both pillows can be washed and dried, according to their labels.
