Previously we talked about the root cause of most snoring — and why it’s VITAL to take a leaf out of Goldilocks’s book, so to speak, and sleep on a pillow that’s not too high, not too low, but just right for your body.

It’s all down to simple biology.

The average person’s windpipe has a diameter of between only 0.6 and 0.8 inches at its widest point — around the same diameter as a garden hose.

Just think about that for a second.

This tiny space, which is the only pathway your body has for getting air and oxygen to your lungs, is about the same size as your finger.

It doesn’t take much to constrict it.

The image below is what happens when you try to sleep on a pillow that is too firm, or too high, for the unique size and shape of your body.

Snoring or sleep apnea while sleeping

Do you see how the trachea is slightly “kinked”, just like a garden hose?

It’s subtle, so it might not be obvious at first. But if you look closely, you’ll see that this person’s neck is sitting at a funny angle compared to his body.

This constricts the trachea, which obstructs air flow.


Snoring. Dreadful, loud, incessant snoring.

Our bodies were not designed to sleep this way. When we’re lying down, our head, neck, and shoulders should be in perfect alignment. This is what keeps our airway open and clear all through the night, and prevents snoring.

Here’s the problem, though:

We all come in different shapes and sizes. So, it’s extremely difficult — if not impossible — to find a pillow that can give you this perfect alignment.

That’s why I invented the Custom-Tailored Pillow.

It’s America’s only TRUE custom-tailored pillow, handmade to no less than 14 of your body’s unique measurements for a guaranteed fit. It’s not too high, not too low, not too firm, not too soft, but just right for your unique body.


We’ve developed an AI-powered Android/iOS app that “extracts” these measurements from photos you take on your smartphone.

The whole process takes just a few minutes.

After the app has your measurements, our artisans construct your Custom-Tailored Pillow over about six days. It requires a lot of work, because every part of the process is performed manually, by hand. Even the stitching.

It’s not only the process that is important.

We have four patents pending on the unique design of the Custom-Tailored Pillow. That’s because it has specific properties that are critical to supporting your neck in its natural posture and preventing bedtime snoring.

As I said, there’s no other pillow in the world that can guarantee you a perfect fit and help keep your airway open to the same degree that our Custom-Tailored Pillow can. (That’s why I had to invent it in the first place.)
