Most asked questions
How do I customise my Forever Pillow?
Start by unzipping the pillow. Then you can adjust the height to your liking by rearranging or removing the four foam layers.
We recommend using the Lilia Cloud Foam as the top layer and the Snooze foam as the base layer. But if you find the pillow too soft, you can flip it over as the base layer is slightly firmer.
You can also fine-tune the height by swapping out the Pure Heaven and Forty Winks foam layers. They are 3 and 4 cm thick, respectively. This will allow you to get the pillow height just right.
If the Pure Heaven foam layer (our special layer for side sleepers) is too firm for you, you can remove it or place it underneath the softer Forty Winks layer.
Side sleepers usually require a slightly higher pillow, while back sleepers are often better off with a flatter pillow.
We recommend the following pillow settings.
To lower the height of your Forever Pillow, start by removing the softer Forty Winks layer or the firmer Pure Heaven layer. These are the two layers in the middle.
If 10 or 11 cm is still too high for you, take out both of these middle layers.
If you have a soft mattress and narrow shoulders, you can also remove the firmer base layer or softer top layer to get the pillow down to just 4 cm in height.
And let’s not forget stomach sleepers
If you’re part of this relatively rare tribe, you will need a flat pillow. This is to make sure your head doesn’t get pushed up too far, straining your neck.
Fortunately, that’s easy with the Lilia Forever Pillow. Simply remove at least one and probably both of the middle layers.
However, it's important to note that there isn't a 'perfect' sleeping position when lying on your stomach. That’s because the head and neck are turned to the side, often causing tension. It's generally better to sleep in a position that is similar to how you stand, so sleeping on your stomach is not the most natural position.
Who is the Forever Pillow suitable for?
Most sleep brands will tell you that their pillow is suitable for everyone! But in reality, it's a bit more complicated. Whether a pillow is truly suitable for a person depends on their body type, sleep position, and mattress.
This thought has guided us from the beginning in the development of the Forever Pillow. We wanted to create a pillow that respects how unique everyone is. The multiple foam layers in our pillow enable personalised adjustments for optimal comfort and ergonomic support tailored to your needs.
The correct pillow height is crucial, as we all have varying shoulder widths and different mattresses. Everyone needs a pillow that can adapt. That's what our Forever Pillow can do.
Importantly, if your mattress is really not suitable for you, our pillow - or any other pillow - won't be able to fully correct your sleep posture. Our pillow is likely to help quite a bit, however.
Why is it important to adjust your pillow?
Let's face it: a one-size-fits-all pillow just doesn't cut it. We're all unique, with varying shoulder widths, mattress preferences, and sleeping positions.
Choosing the right pillow is crucial, as it can make or break your night's sleep. The solution? Adjustability!
Enter the Forever Pillow, the ultimate sleep partner that's got your back (and neck) covered. The key to its magic lies in its customisable design, focused on providing the perfect height to support your neck and spine.
With its adjustable height and multiple foam layers, the Forever Pillow lets you tailor the firmness to your individual needs. Say goodbye to sleepless nights and hello to a personalized snooze experience!

About the Forever Pillow
What is the Forever Pillow made of?
The cover: A mixture of cotton, polyamide and polyester. It is machine washable at 40° C.
The top layer: The Lilia Cloud Foam is a high-grade memory foam (its 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.
¹Footnote: 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 better the foam and the longer it will last.
²Footnote: 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.
Where is the pillow produced?
Our pillow cover is made in Germany. The foams inside are sourced from Germany and produced by sustainability-certified manufacturers. Only the highest quality materials go into the making of our pillows.
What’s more, we are thrilled to work with the Lebenshilfe Südliche Weinstraße. The organization's mission is to empower individuals with disabilities to fully participate in the workforce. The Lebenshilfe assembles our pillow. Fantastic people doing a fantastic job!
Can I wash the pillow?
You can easily wash the cover of your Forever Pillow.
A mixture of cotton, polyamide and polyester, 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 40° 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.
Do I need a pillowcase?
Contrary to popular belief, it would actually be more ergonomic to do without a pillowcase altogether.
This may seem surprising, but it's true.
Thicker pillowcases prevent the head from resting on the ergonomically sound foam layers, thereby reducing the foam's ability to adapt to the shape of the head.
Tight pillowcases can also cause increased surface tension.
A tight pillowcase compresses the pillow, which can negatively affect the ergonomics and make the pillow firmer.
However, in terms of hygiene, using a pillowcase is still advisable.
It's important to use a thin pillowcase that is the correct size.
For best results, use the Forever Pillow with a pillowcase measuring 60x50 cm.
What's the height of the pillow?
The overall height of the Forever Pillow is approximately 14 cm.
Lilia Cloud Foam: 3 cm (top)
Pure Heaven Layer: 3 cm (middle 1)
The Dream Foam: 4 cm (middle 2)
The Sturdy Slumber Layer: 3 cm (bottom)
The Lover Cover: 1 cm
Resulting in a total height of 14 cm!
How much does the Forever Pillow weigh?
Our pillow weighs approximately 500 grams, with all layers included. That’s about as much as pint of milk.
What is the level of firmness of the pillow?
In the default setting of 14 cm (using all four foam layers) the Forever Pillow is medium-firm.
However, the exact firmness depends on the order and number of pillow layers you choose.
What certifications does the pillow have?
Most materials used in the Forever Pillow carry OekoTex Standard 100 certifications.
Our own foams are also certified by TÜV Rheinland.
This means that our foams are certified to be free from harmful chemicals.
We’re still in the process of getting our pillow fully certified by OekoTex Standard 100.
What are the dimensions of the Forever Pillow?
The pillow measures 60x40 cm and stands at a height of 14 cm.
Does the pillow have a new smell?
The Forever Pillow is made with high-quality materials and is not known to have a strong or offensive smell. However, it is not uncommon for new foam products to have some level of new smell, especially when it is first unpacked.
Please note that any smell present is not harmful to your health and will dissipate over time. To minimize any potential odor, we recommend airing out the pillow for a day in a well-ventilated room before using it.
Which mattress works best with the Lilia Pillow?
The right mattress is crucial for good ergonomics and healthy sleep. Just like choosing the right pillow, selecting the perfect mattress is dependent on your body type and preferred sleeping position.
The good news is that our Forever Pillow is designed to work with all types of mattresses, including foam, spring, latex or hybrid.
However, if your mattress is not at all suitable for you, then the Forever Pillow may not be able to provide the right support for your spine and neck. Nor will any pillow for that matter.
We're happy to help with any questions you may have!
What exactly is our Pure Heaven Layer?
It’s a special foam layer we have specifically designed for side sleepers.
It consists of three parts: cold foam (on one side), memory foam (in the middle) and cold foam (on the other side).
The memory foam layer in the center offers a plush and comfortable feel when sleeping on your back.
For side sleepers, it's common to find yourself lying on the edge of the pillow. The slightly firmer cold foam layer ensures that your head and neck are properly supported, preventing you from rolling off the pillow during the night.
Can I try out the Forever Pillow in a shop?
Unfortunately, that is not currently possible.
However, with the 30-day trial period, it is not necessary.
You can simply try sleeping with the Forever Pillow at home under real conditions.
Is the pillow compatible with CPAP masks?
Yes, in principle, the pillow is very suitable for CPAP users. Of course, it can always depend on the person and the type of CPAP mask.
Our pillow is excellent for side sleepers. For someone using a CPAP mask, the question would be how much pressure the mask puts on your face when you are lying on your side.
However, the top layer of the Forever Pillow should be soft enough to be a good choice.
It could only be problematic if you are used to very soft pillows (like down pillows) that firm up overnight, but don't put as much pressure on your face at first and you don't notice later in the night when that changes.
Our pillow keeps its shape, which is much better for your ergonomics.
About the silk pillowcase
What does “Momme” refer to?
Momme is the key to the secret of silk. It measures quality, weight, and density and is, in a way, the "quality mark" of silk - the higher the Momme, the higher the quality.
In silk products like pillowcases, a Momme weight from 19 and above is considered high-quality. At these weights, the silk is smooth, durable and has a beautiful, luxurious shine. Products with a lower Momme weight will be less durable and feel less smooth.
Our silk pillowcases come with a premium Momme value of 22, providing you with a soft, luxurious shine whilst also offering high durability.
What does 6A mean for silk products?
Silk products are categorised into various quality grades. The A-grade is the highest form of silk; in other words, it's first class.
In addition to Grade A, there are also other classes: Grade B and Grade C. However, at Lilia Sleep, we only settle for the very best. The silk of our pillowcase is from the A-class.
Within Grade A, there are further subgrades: 6A, 5A, 4A, 3A, 2A, and A. Grade 6A is considered the highest quality among them.
Our silk pillowcase is, of course, made from 6A-grade silk...
What is the delivery time?
Your silk case will be delivered within 2 or 3 business days.
So you don't need to wait long until you can benefit from the advantages that our silk material will provide to your hair and skin.
What are the benefits of silk?
Silk has a very smooth surface. Therefore, it does not rub your hair unnecessarily and also does not electrify it
So you don't need to waste much time in the morning to style your hair. Furthermore, silk is antibacterial and gives bacteria no chance to multiply.
So you wake up with great hair and smooth skin!
And did you know? Our silk case is certified by Oeko Tex Standard 100 as well.
Who should use a silk pillowcase?
A silk pillowcase is perfect for you when you want smooth hair in the morning and fewer wrinkles on your cheek, for example.
This is due to the flat surface of the material.
Moreover, silk is really soft on the skin – if you love this feeling, then you will adore our silk case.
In addition, silk is very cooling. Therefore, people who sweat a lot will appreciate a silk pillowcase
What is the size of the silk pillowcase?
Our silk pillowcase is 70x50 cm and will therefore fit the Forever pillow more than perfectly.
In our FAQ for the Forever pillow we recommend pillow cases with 60x50 cm. Important note with that: It could be that the silk case shrinks a bit after washing it.
So you don't have to worry, even if your silk pillowcase shrinks a little, it will still fit ideally on your Forever pillow.

We stand behind the quality of our products, which is why the Forever Pillow comes with a complimentary 3-year warranty.

Why is it called the Forever Pillow?
If you buy right, you only need to buy once. That's how we feel about pillows too. The Forever Pillow is built to last for many years. That's because of its design and the quality of the materials used.
In fact, the only part that is likely to wear out after five years or so (it really depends on the use), is the cover. We'll be offering a cover replacement service soon. That way you can just replace the cover and keep using our top-of-the-line foam layers for many more years.
