Time for a pillow refresh? John Lewis shoppers gush over £14 style: 'Highly recommend'

John Lewis' affordable pillow has hundreds of positive reviews. (John Lewis & Partners)

Are your pillows in need of a refresh? You don't need to spend a hefty amount to get excellent value for money. In fact, John Lewis' already affordable £14 pillow is one of our top picks.

We're not the only ones. The pillow has gained hundreds of five-star reviews and is constantly having to be restocked by the department store.

Why we rate it

The Synthetic Soft Touch Washable Standard Pillow is medium to firm: ideal for those who sleep on their back or side as it helps keep your spine aligned.

There's a soft to medium option too for those who prefer something more cosy, which is said to be a good option if you tend to sleep on your front.

The pillow is filled with polyester mini ball clusters that remain plump, while the brushed finish makes it soft on the skin.

It's also very easy to care for as it can be washed at 40°C in the washing machine when required.
