I am a writer and an avid reader. I have a dog that is happiest when I work and read in bed rather than at a desk. With the help of an old pillow I can sit and not kill my back! There is plenty of support and height for sleeping comfortably.
We bought two of these in the king size version. I read every review on this site. Some say it's too hard, some say too soft. I think it's a perfect pillow, as I like to fold up the pillow when I sleep. With this pillow, I can do that with ease. My wife on the other hand, says it's too high for her head. it depends on the person, I guess. Being that ours is the king size version, it's the largest pillow we've ever owned. Pillow is made in the USA, the cover is made in China. The quality is top notch all around.
I have used these pillows for the past 30 years or so, and they last for about 10 years before you need to replace them. They are hard to find. JC Penney used to carry them but they cost quite a bit more than Overstock lists them for. I am a side sleeper and this is the most comfortable pillow I have ever used. It retains it's shape forever........just becomes less supportive after many years of use so needs replacement. Excellent value and excellent product!
I suffered neck and shoulder pain using a down pillow. It offered no support at all. I ordered the Talatech Foam Pillow and the soreness in my neck and shoulders when away after using it a few days. However, I thought the Talatech Foam Pillow would be a little bit more firmer than what I expected. It is still relatively soft. I need the firm support to really get a good night's sleep. I'm glad that by using this pillow though, at least the soreness went away. If you're looking for a "softer" firm pillow, then this is for you! I recommend it for those type of people, however for me I need one that is more firm that is why I gave it an "average" rating.
I have always preferred latex pillows and could only find them at JC Penny's, but they were a hit or miss in terms of softness. Glad I found these on Overstock, they are perfect for us. Firm for heads, soft for legs. I even had a problem with my first order and Overstock sent me a new one without even having to return the original one. That's #1 customer service in my book.
Been looking and buying pillows for a long time to get the right one and I finally found it. This pillow is great for me. I like the extra height of it as I am a side sleeper and it keeps my neck in just the right place so I do not wake up with a neck ache. I really like this one. Its very comfortable and does not mush down, it springs right back.
I am a side sleeper and these pillows are perfect for me. Upon receiving the pillows, I let them air out for about 4 days. Unzipping the covers helps the foam smell dissipitate well. Since using them, I am sleeping so much better. My head and neck are well supported. Like others say, these pillows have a firm squishy feeling. I am very happy with my purchase.
The size of the pillow is exactly what I was looking for but I would not consider this pillow to be firm. It seems well made but if you are looking for a firm supporting pillow I would not buy this one. My queen size memory foam pillows that I got a couple of years ago are much firmer.
I have tried several types of pillow and continued to feel that my head & neck weren't supported adequately. The memory foam contour neck pillow I found restrictive and too firm. This pillow is perfect. I am 5'10", my shoulders are fairly broad, my head was well aligned with my spine using this pillow. I ordered two more on waking the first morning, as my husband loved it, too. Also? Wonderful price.
My pillow of 8 years was the only one I could sleep on until I bought this. Finally, I was able to throw away my old pillow I thought I couldn't sleep without! I love this pillow and would recommend it to anyone who needs a very firm pillow.
I've purchased two pair of these pillows as gifts and they are firm yet comfortable. Best of all is the durability as I find that latex pillows don't flatten out over time like others do. I recommend this to anyone looking for a quality pillow.
I have several of these pillows that I purchased 5 years ago, and they are still like new. The new ones are the same. They are not really firm, more medium. After using these latex pillows, we can never go back to anything else. We also use two inch latex toppers on our beds. Latex lasts for years and, unlike memory foam, does not sleep hot. The pillows do need to air out for several weeks before they lose the latex smell, but it does eventually go away. Love thse pillows.
