A pillow that doesn’t compromise
We all want healthy sleep. We all know the right pillow is key. But how to find THE one?
We’re all different. Different body types, different sleeping positions, different mattresses… All these things matter in determining what pillow you require.
That’s exactly what inspired our layered design of the Forever Pillow. By simply adding or removing layers, you can adjust our pillow to fit your needs. No more trying dozens of rubbish pillows.
It’s as easy as counting sheep. Just more effective.
Good sleep is like an onion. Layered.
The Forever Pillow is made up of four foam layers of exceptional quality. By swapping around these layers, you can adapt the pillow to your body and sleeping environment.
Lilia Cloud Foam
You’ll sleep like a baby after a big lunch on this extremely soft, high-end memory foam. The Lilia Cloud Foam is not only super comfy, it also helps support your head and neck.
Pure Heaven Layer
A special foam layer designed for side sleepers. It’s firmer on the sides and softer in the middle. This stops your head from rolling off on either side. Your spine remains in straight and healthy alignment. Clever & heavenly.
Forty Winks Layer
Our Forty Winks Layer is there when you need it. To give your pillow an extra few inches - in height - leave this foam inside. If you’d like your pillow a little flatter, take it out. No foam fomo here.
Sturdy Slumber Layer
Our base layer is made of fancy cold foam. It provides the Forever Pillow with stability. Your head, neck and spine need this for ergonomically sound sleep.
Our carefully stitched, breathable and washable cover keeps all of our lovely layers in place. Ready to cover you with love.
Rest easy with Lilia Sleep
The Forever Pillow is unique. You can adjust it to suit your needs. In just a few simple steps.
We all need to do our bit. That’s why we support 1% for the Planet. It’s also why we made a pillow that lasts.

The nitty gritty
Neck pain… Au revoir!
When you’re lying in bed, your body should have the same alignment as when you’re standing. In a healthy posture of course.
If your pillow is too high, your head tilts up at an awkward angle. On the flip side, your head will be left hanging down, if your pillow is too flat. Both are bad for healthy sleep.
It’s a similar story for back sleepers. A pillow that’s too high will push your head towards your chest. If too flat, your neck will be stretched back too far.
This may sound obvious.
Nobody would stand like this for hours (in case you do, send us a picture!). But many people sadly sleep on mediocre pillows that leave them misshapen in bed.
So what is the proper sleeping position?
These questions unfortunately don’t receive the attention they deserve.
Let’s change that now.
First off, your head and neck should feel relaxed. You should not experience any twisting or tension anywhere along your spine.
The key here is the right height of your pillow. Our Forever Pillow has a height of 13 cm with all four layers being used. But you may need a different height.
That’s where the Forever Pillow’s adjustability comes in. You can easily customise its height until you find the one that suits you best.
Here are some quick pointers to help you:
1. How firm is your mattress?
It’s easy to check roughly how firm your mattress is. Just press with your hand onto the mattress surface (away from the edges) and measure approximately how far your hand sinks in.
- Barely any sinkage = firm
- Sinkage of 1-2 cm = medium firm
- Sinke of 3-5 cm (or more) = soft
2. How broad are your shoulders?
- Small shoulders = 38-42 cm (women), 41-46 cm (men)
- Average shoulders = 43-46 cm (women), 47-51 cm (men)
- Broad shoulders = 47 cm and more (women), 52 cm and more (men)
All measured up? Now you can check in the table below which setting of the Forever Pillow should work best for you:
Your head still isn’t properly aligned? Fear note, simply add or remove one or both of the middle layers.
Does your shoulder roll too much to the side, when sleeping on your side?
In that case, we recommend removing either the Forty Winks Layer or the Pure Heaven Layer.
That should do the trick!
However, as much as we love the Forever Pillow, it can’t produce miracles (yet). For a comfy and ergonomically sound alignment, you also need a decent mattress. Good bedding helps too!
If your mattress is old or just not right for you, then it might be time to invest in a new one.
Attention side sleepers
That’s most of us! It’s really important to make sure your pillow does not exert too much pressure on your ears. And especially not on the arteries in your neck.
Finding a pillow with the correct height will keep you healthy and comfy. This in turn will depend on the firmness of your mattress and how broad your shoulders are.
If your mattress is relatively soft (and you sink in a fair bit) and your shoulders are on the smaller side, then we recommend you try our Forever Pillow in its flat configuration (7-9 cm).
That means removing both of the middle layers: the Forty Winks Layer and the Pure Heaven Layer.
If, on the other hand, your mattress is firm and your shoulders broad, then it’s very easy. You need our highest configuration (13 cm).
So just keep all four layers in the Forever Pillow. Our default.
The result? A healthy and straight alignment of your neck and head.
The basics for back sleepers
Back sleepers should do a simple exercise to find the right pillow height: stand with your back to the wall in such a way that your bum and upper back are touching the surface of the wall.
Then check how far from the wall your head is in its relaxed position.
Some people will have their head very close to or even touching the wall. Others will have a gap of 10 cm, maybe even more.
The right pillow will essentially fit in this gap. And so the correct setting for your Forever Pillow approximately should match the size of the gap.
Approximately because you should still take into account how firm or soft your mattress is.
If someone were to look at you from the side, you would be lying in the same posture that you stand.
And stomach sleepers?
We understand that many people prefer to sleep on their stomach, but it's important to acknowledge that there is no perfect position for your head when sleeping this way.
Sleeping on your stomach means turning your head to the side, which puts strain on your neck and upper back.
Your ideal sleeping position should mimic standing posture as much as possible. Your head should not be turned to the side.
If you can't do without sleeping on your stomach, we recommend choosing a pillow that allows for a low height to reduce stress on your neck and back.
Fortunately, our Forever Pillow offers just such an option.
You really only need the ONE pillow
Some people change their pillows like they change their socks. Maybe not quite… but you get the point. If you buy a really good and adjustable pillow, you can keep it for ages. Like a fancy designer watch.
The Forever Pillow is just such a pillow. Made from extremely high quality and durable materials, and customisable to what you need, when you need it.
Better for your bank account and the planet.
Between the lines…
Can I wash the pillow?
You can easily wash the cover of your Forever Pillow.
Made with 100% polyester from Portugal, the cover is durable, breathable, and comfortable.
To keep the pillow in its best condition, wash it in the machine at a maximum temperature of 30°C.
Please avoid hot water as the cover could shrink and lose some of its softness. Don't put it in the dryer, and avoid ironing and bleaching to maintain its quality.
How long is the trial period
You can try out the Forever Pillow for 30 days completely risk-free.
We recommend you take full advantage of the 30 days. It can often take your body several days or even weeks to get used to a new pillow. So be patient.
If, after this trial period, you still find that the pillow isn't right for you, simply contact us to initiate the return process.
Remember to keep the original packaging, as it will be required for the return.
What is the Forever Pillow made of?
The cover: 100% high-grade polyester from Portugal (the home of great textiles). It is machine washable at 30°C.
The top layer: The Lilia Cloud Foam is a high-grade memory foam (it’s volume weight is 50)¹. This ultra-soft, adaptive foam helps to distribute your weight evenly on your bed and provides the right support for your head and neck.
Pure Heaven Layer: A combination of high-quality memory foam (volume weight of 50) and cold foam (volume weight of 30). This layer was specifically developed for side sleepers. With two levels of firmness, your head won't roll off the pillow and will stay in a healthy, straight alignment.
Forty Winks Layer: This middle foam layer is soft but highly adaptable, giving the Forever Pillow the necessary point elasticity². It also serves to add height to the pillow. This layer is especially important for people with firmer mattresses and wider shoulders.
Sturdy Slumber Layer: We've again used a top of the range memory foam (volume weight of 50). While adaptable, this layer is on the firmer side. It gives the pillow a stable base.
¹ Footnote: The volume weight is a measure of the density of the material. It indicates how many kilograms of foam were used in a cubic meter of foam. The higher the density, the longer the better the foam and the longer it will last.
² Footnote: Point elasticity - an awkward term we know - refers to how a foam reacts when pressure is applied to it. Point elastic materials exhibit a high and precise level of adaptation to pressure. In other words, the foam gives in wherever pressure is applied.
Happy customers = Happy Lilia
Soft in all the right places
We all love the feeling of sinking our head into an ultra plush feather pillow. However, the pleasure is short-lived. And let's not even talk about the ergonomics.
The reason is simple: you keep on sinking into such pillows until the middle gets pressed flat. The pillow edges then bulge with the shifted feathers.
That’s when the tossing and turning starts, and the doubling up of pillows...
Down or wool pillows, or those stuffed with polyester bits, tell a similar tale of initial comfort followed by discomfort and bad sleep.
The Lilia story is different.
Our Forever Pillow gives you wonderful ergonomic support while retaining much of the soft, comfortable feeling of a feather pillow. This is down (no pun intended) to our clever use of high-quality foams. All night, and all day if you wish, our pillow won’t let you… down (we couldn’t resist).
