Dr. Maas, also known as “America’s Sleep Doctor,” has partnered with United Feather & Down to develop the Sleep for Success! by Dr. James B. Maas pillow collection, each piece built to help provide a better sleep experience by aligning the body in the correct position for sleep and regulating body temperature via the latest breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics and fills. The pillows were designed based on the extensive bedding expertise of United Feather & Down, and Dr. Maas’ decades of researching Americans' sleep habits. The Sleep for Success! collection can currently be found at The Great Indoors (http://www.thegreatindoors.com).
