Traveling in pure comfort is honestly an acquired skill. You have to know exactly what to bring, how to fit it in your luggage, how to keep things clean, how to stay entertained, how to streamline the process, etc. etc. This is why we try to take hints from celebrities — they travel all the time!
Rachel Bilson, for example, is a big traveler, and she has her own list of trustworthy products she always packs to bring on the plane with her. That includes a pillow — not just a neck pillow, but a full pillow!
Bilson recently spoke to CNN to reveal her 11 must-bring travel picks, and we felt enlightened seeing this pillow on the list! “I actually bring a real pillow,” The O.C. star revealed, “but I put two pillowcases on it because once I get to the place, I need to take off the dirty pillowcase that’s been on the airplane.” How smart is that?
The exact pillow she listed is on Amazon, available in both a queen and a king size. But what makes this pillow so special? It’s adjustable! You can customize it specifically to your comfort, switching things up depending on your size, shape and preferred sleep position. Unzip the inner liner to access the memory foam fill, taking it out or adding more in as needed!
If you’re a side sleeper, it’s recommended that you try the pillow as is, adjusting as needed. If you’re a back sleeper, you can try removing one quarter of the filling, and if you’re a stomach sleeper, you can try removing one third for what will likely be the most comfortable sleep. Need more filling? This pillow comes with a bonus half-pound bag!
These pillows are even more worth it when you learn that they undergo strict, third-party lab testing and are CertiPUR-US and GREENGUARD Gold certified to ensure safety and quality. No harmful chemicals! They’re also vegan and cruelty-free, so no need to worry about down allergies! Nice for anyone you’re sitting next to on the plane too!
