This pillow is really flat. I have to use a normal pillow too, to support my head. Also another pillow in between my feet because the pillow only goes to my knees and I'm 5 feet 4. This pillow does not feel like it has any cool technology. This pillow is awful :(
I bought this because I have a very bad shoulder and neck. I thought maybe one of these would help me get comfortable at night and wow this did it! I can fold it up so many different ways, I can prop myself up with it, I slept so good last night! The cover it comes with is not as soft as I would have hoped but aside from that it's like sleeping with a big marshmellow!
I bought this to support my back when I sleep on my side. I used to use several pillows, but they never stayed in place so I ended up losing my support. This pillow is great. I needed one side to be a little bulkier, so I placed a pillow on one end & covered it with a body pillow. There are lots of ways you can "tweak" this pillow. If there was one down side, it's that the cover may not be something you want next to your skin, and finding a cotton cover is impossible. So you have to improvise a little with some pillow cases reconstructed to slide on.
I have had shoulder issues for years.. after multiple recenct shoulder dislocations i have had to adapt to sleeping in my back. After years of manipulatting multiple pillows, i found this.. i absolutely love it. I slep on the couch because of my shoulder problems but this pillow solved it all! (Since i could really benefit from a slep number bed as i sleep almost sitting up) this is perfect. I set it up on the couch and it oretty mych cobtours to me. Im only 5ft tall so its perfect. As for the cover.. i use an old duvet cover that i used to use as a sheet before getting this pillow because it was so soft. Not ideal, but mother in law is going to make me a cover once i recover from my shoulder surgery.
I gave this pillow to my daughter for Christmas. I researched the ratings of many maternity pillows and this one had the highest ratings. Even though it seems pricey, it's worth the money. She loves it and says it's the best night sleep she's gotten.
