I have purchased many pillows looking for the best side sleeper pillow and this one is great. It keeps it shape and does not go flat while you sleep. I do not wake up with terrible neck and shoulder pain. The only reason I gave it only 4 stars was because I ordered a king size and this is the smallest king size pillow I have ever seen. I roll over from my left side to my right side several times during the night and have a tendency to roll off my pillow because it is so small. I am use to sleeping on a bigger pillow. Still it is a good pillow, just need it to be bigger.
... Just right! This is the Mama Bear of firm pillows. As an antidote to the stress of NYC living, my R&R consists largely of lounging for long hours in bed & this foam pillow supplements my squishy-soft down pillows to provide wonderful, just-right support for semi-horizontal TV viewing. I am a happy slacker.
For many years I have struggled to find the right pillow. They are either too hard or too soft, so I end up stacking multiple pillows. Often I wake up with a stiff neck because the height is not right. The pillows also get hot during the night and I wake up and need to turn over the pillow to the cool side. This pillow is just right. It is cushy and springy and stays cool all night. It is not too hard or too soft, it's just right!

In another review for the medium density model of this pillow from this firm, I mention this firm density one. I purchased and kept both the medium and firm density pillows. First and foremost, I greatly prefer plain ordinary foam pillows over any of the down, synthetic down, down alternative pillows, and I have not found any of the newer memory foam, gel memory foam or other specially designed foam pillows that I liked. And I've tried many over the years. These pillows are however good to great. I found that this firm density pillow is a bit too firm for me for most nights, but on occasion when I want a very supportive pillow, I go right for this one. The main pillow I use almost every night is the medium density pillow by the same manufacturer through Overstock, and that pillow has been the perfect pillow for me. It is the 'Goldilocks solution" - not too soft; not too firm; just right. So if you're looking for a very firm pillow, this one is a good bet to try. If you you like a mix of good support and some 'give' then you might want to consider the medium density version.
I am a side sleeper and this keeps my head up. The foam is very soft and bouncy, and I have always like this sort of pillow.

love it, love it, love it. I don't like a firm pillow or soft pillow this is just right. I can sleep on my back or side and it is just great. I had one like it for many , many years and it just needed to be replace so trying to save money I bout other pillow that start out poofy and end up flat as a pancake, Buy doing this and buying so many trying to find the right one it cost me a fortune..Finally decided to buy me another foam and this is the perfect one....
These are the same quality of latex pillows you get for a lot more money at mattress stores. We switched to latex pillows because they hold their shape better, cushion your head and neck and breathe better so you don't sweat. These are great ones!
Initially when I lay on this pillow I thought that it was marvelously perfect. But after being on it for a few minutes I began to realize that it was too tall. My head cannot comfortably lay on it for extended periods of time...it feels like a force is pushing against my head. I tried for 3 nights to use it, but gave up. It was quite uncomfortable and hurt my head and neck. I think it would be great if it weren't so tall. Maybe I should have gotten the medium or soft, even though I do sleep on my back. It did seem to be better if I was on my side. Unfortunately I've spent a good bit of money on an item that can't be returned and I'm too nervous to buy another on overstock. It does make a good "prop up" pillow.
My pillow has to elevate my head for sleep apnes. I love foam pillows but they are usually too "mooshy". This pillow is form but soft enough to be very comfortable. I love it.

Pillow is huge, King sized I guess, but is no where close to firm density. I have used firm density natural latex pillows for many years and usually they come with a 10 year or longer warranty. This one did/does not and the reason is because it is not firm from the beginning and rapidly loses any integrity it has after a month or two of use. I have owned this pillow for several months now and the center is saggy, it hurts my neck and it already requires replacement. Save your money, spend an extra twenty dollars and get a real pillow.
I bought these pillows because they're supposed to be firm and I thought they would hold their shape and not flatten. Although they haven't gone flat they ARE NOT firm ! You definitely sink in when you lay on them, to the point that, if you are laying on your side it feels like you are suffocating ! I wish I would've returned them. I'll never buy them again.
These pillows are firm and really comfortable. I have used latex pillows for years and find them to be the best for firmness. Will not crush like feathers, shredded foam, etc. The pillows that I am replacing must be at least 20 years old. They have turned yellow and started shedding foam. Just as comfortable but sure didn't look very good. I have purchased two sets of other brand latex pillows and returned them because they were too soft. These are perfect.
And this is definitely my "just right" pillow. I have tried down, imitation down, memory foam, buckwheat, you name it, and this is the best pillow for me. I am a side sleeper and the "firm density" latex pillow keeps my head elevated at just the right level. My husband moves around more when he sleeps and he really likes this pillow too. We like them so much I bought a set for our RV. I hate sleeping on any other pillow!
This pillow type was recommend by my chiropractor to help solve a constantly nagging neck and shoulder pain. I am not one to buy a pillow that costs more than cheap sneakers but.. After a week the pain went away. I am sleeping better w no neck or shoulder pain.
I've finally found the perfect pillow. This pillow has significantly improved the quality of sleep I get. I never smelled any chemical odor from the foam, and from the first night of using it I noticed a huge difference in the quality of sleep I was getting. I've had this pillow for a few months, and I just ordered four more for the rest of my family. No more tossing and turning and sore shoulders--this pillow has the perfect balance of give and firmness. I have the king size, and it's the perfect length. Do not hesitate--try this pillow!
This pillow is super comfy and I get a wonderful night's sleep on it! I would highly recommend this pillow to anyone with any kind of sleep issues because of the support that it offers ~ my head feels like it is just floating on a cloud ;) I have been using latex foam pillows for over the past 20 years and this one seems to give me the best support (whether this is true because it is new, I am not sure;) I have fallen in love with latex pillows since first introduced to them WAY back because the support on your neck and head just can't be beat! It is a wonderful pillow....time will tell just how long it will last ~ I have had it only about a month now.
I purchased the Talatec 230 latex pillow because I was having trouble sleeping. This pillow is wonderful and I have had no problem sleeping since I started using it.
