Octaspring Evolution Plus pillow provides a better night's sleep (Review & Giveaway)

In the last weeks of my pregnancy, when I was itching to meet my daughter, people told me to enjoy the sleep while it lasted. Ha, I thought. I have a watermelon in my belly, I get up every three hours to pee and I am so hot I practically sleep naked - in January.

And then Hannah was born. And I did miss sleep (A LOT), and some mornings, 16 months later, I still do.

Hannah isn’t much of a napper (she’s never napped more than once a day –ever) but, as long as she’s feeling well and not teething, we are lucky in that she usually sleeps 10 -12 hours straight a night. There’s still no sleeping in (if only we could teach our cat Booyah he’s not a rooster) – but there is consecutive hours of sleep, and that counts.

Dormeo Octaspring (from the UK) recently launched their revolutionary new line of bedding in Canada, and I was approached to review one of their pillows. Consecutive sleep could equal sound sleep? Needless to say, I jumped at the chance.


Octaspring technology innovatively combines all the benefits of the two traditional types of mattresses, but eliminates the drawbacks of both through its unique eight-sided springs made out of memory foam. The springs cradle and conform to the sleeper’s body (memory foam) while providing incredible ventilation and breathability (springs). Octaspring also extends the principle behind their mattresses’ technology into their pillows, realizing that the head and neck need as much comfort as the rest of the body.


I was sent an Octaspring Evolution Plus pillow. It consists of 18-memory foam Octapillow springs to cradle the head and on the border edges are another 12 firmer Octapillow springs, to tuck under the neck. This is important as I sleep on my back but I also sleep on my stomach. And if Booyah is sleeping with us, sometimes I find myself on my side. My new pillow is a lot firmer than the pillow I was using before, and my head and neck are definitely supported regardless of my sleeping position.

Due to the unique Octaspring ventilation system (the mattresses and pillows are 9x and 7x more breathable in relation to competing memory foam products), the pillow is always cool, which makes for a better sleep (and for me, less breakouts on my face). I’ve also noticed I don’t blow my nose as much in the morning - thanks to the ventilation of the pillow my allergies aren’t acting up. Chris has even mentioned to me that I am a sounder sleeper since I began using my Evolution Plus pillow.


But you don’t have to take my (or Chris’) word for it – you can try out the mattresses yourselves at Sleep Country Canada locations. (As a bride-to-be, I have to wonder if they have a registry? I can’t be the only bride who wants one of these mattresses!)

  1. The unique Octaspring ventilation system provides a constant airflow – body movements force stale humid air out through the specially designed mesh sides of the mattress, drawing fresh air back in – providing a fresh healthy sleep surface night after night giving the whole mattress that ‘clean sheets’ feeling.

    It sounds wonderful really! I struggle with being overheated at night time and have allergies as well.

    There is no transfer of motion from one side of the bed to the other because of the independent movement of the springs. - Coming from someone who has a restless sleeper for a husband, this would be HEAVENLY!!

    The Octaspring works in exactly the opposite way that metal springs do.

    Whereas metal springs push up, resisting the force that is applied to them, each Octaspring accepts the force of your weight, conforming and cradling the body.

    It’s comfort without compromise.

  21. "This Octaspring pillow consists of 18 memory foam Octapillow springs to cradle the head in blissful comfort. On the border edges are another 12 firmer Octapillow springs, to tuck under the neck, keeping your spine in alignment no matter what position you sleep."

    That last bit is important since I sleep on both my side and stomach equally. Also, I'd do anything to slow down my allergies this time of year.
