I've been buying these pillows for decades after growing up with a foam rubber pillow. I've tried all the high tech pillows and been very disappointed. Even the big name brand which used to see for about $XXX a pillow let me down (or let my head down) after just a few months. These do need replacing after 2 or 3 years, but then I move them to a guest room or to another position on my bed, since I need lots of pillows to provide support between arthritis, bursitis, and a few other itises. They do wash and dry in my large capacity washer and dryer. That should only be necessary if you have a cat like mine (and if I knew which one, I'd have one cat less). I do have a preference for pillows with an inner liner over the pillow in case the pillow starts to deteriorate, but the plush fabric on these feels so soft, I'm tempted to forget the pillow cases. Actually, I move so much during the night, I usually stock up on the zippered covers that don't crawl off like the pillow cases do. These are a perfect firmness for me. They provide support, but don't make my ears fall asleep like the super-firm ones do. Pillow comfort is a very individual thing, but I have already recommended these and just have had them for a few days.
This is a good quality talalay latex pillow, and the price was very good, but it's a little firmer and higher than I would have liked. I expect it will soften up over time, but I may have to look for a different one before it does. If you like a high pillow, this one is worth the money.
I've only had this pillow a few weeks now, but I can tell you it has made a big difference in my sleep. I found the pillow to be the correct size (I ordered the standard). It hasn't gone flat and retains it shape. I also have not found it to be hot. It has certainly alleviated any pains that I was having with regards to my old pillows. I will be ordering more of these. Now all I need is a new mattress. If you're looking at this pillow, I highly recommend that you purchase it. As far as the cost, I compared it with a big box store and the price here is about 40% less. :-)
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.
This pillow smelled so bad I left it in my living room the first night it arrived. It stunk up the entire house, so I put it out on my porch. After a week, I tried to sleep on it but, not only did it still stink, it was super uncomfortable! I had nightmares all night and I am pretty sure it was the awful smell that caused them. The pillow lived in my garage for another week until it ended up in the trash! Went back to my old pillow.
I read several of the reviews on this particular product, and similar others in this same catagory, and thought I'd be getting a firm, high-loft latex pillow. I am not new to latex pillows, have bought many from different companies over the years. What I got here was a soft, downy, floppy pillow with low density, that I am returning.
This pillow was too dense for a side sleeper. It held my head at too much of an angle and gave me a sore neck. I ended up liking the Premium Natural Latex Foam Pillow Item #: 921685 much better. It was much softer and had more give or bounce and did not prop my head up too much. I am returning, but shipping back will cost almost $9 through UPS/Overstock Returns.
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 been using these pillows for years and I love them. I paid twice as much for one pillow when purchased at a Department store, and again I will say I love sleeping on these pillows. Excellent quality, and if you have allergies you will not have them with this pillow.
This is a very nice pillow if a firm pillow is what you prefer. I was looking for a nice firm pillow. I ordered two of these. One is PERFECT, the other is not firm at all. The pillow is nice in all seasons. I do not find it to be hot in summer months. It is really nice. Would LOVE them if both pillows were the same.
