I am a side (and sometimes back) sleeper and I hate pillows that sink down and wrap around my head and face, making me hot. This pillow has a nice density to it, just enough 'give' so that it is comfortable but it keeps its' shape. I have been using foam pillows for years, and this one is the best by far.
Purchased this latex foam pillow for my adult son who now lives with us and he loves it. He had one when he was married but the ex-wife took about everything including his favorite pillow. He says this pillow is perfect, not too soft and not too firm, so he sleeps very soundly on it. Am considering purchasing the same kind of pillow for my husband and me. I tried it out during an afternoon nap myself and loved it. I would recommend this pillow for sure and my son gives it a two thumbs up. Had looked around previously for this kind of pillow but Overstock had the best price.
I wish I could count how much money I've spent trying to find pillows that don't go flat! I was skeptical about spending this much money on a pillow because of the lack of success with previous items but I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. I've been using these pillows for a few weeks now ... and they're still as fluffy as the first night!! I bought the firm density and, like some others have mentioned, they are very heavy pillows. But, then again, you aren't really lifting them in your sleep. I'm a side sleeper and have always had problems with neck, upper back and shoulder pain because the pillows didn't provider proper support. These pillows support my head and take the pressure off my shoulders and upper back ... no pain since I've been sleeping on these! They do take a little bit of getting used to but I would recommend these if you want a pillow that keeps its shape.
This is one of the best pillows I've ever owned. I got it in firm, and it's very very firm. It has a nice bounce to it and it cradles your head fairly well. I sleep on my side and think that's probably the only way this level of firmness would work out, but it seems to have solved my neck issues. I no longer have to have two pillows for the height level I need. The only down side is this pillow is not very cushy. My dream pillow would have been a memory foam that is a 1.5x thicker than this pillow to account for the smush factor, but I've yet to find one like that so this is a definitely good alternative. If you have a latex mattress and like that, you'll love this pillow!
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.
Love this pillow. I am a tummy or side sleeper and I recently purchased soft and medium firmness latex pillows and I felt like I was going to smother in them. Yes it is somewhat bouncy but I am fine with that. On the other pillows I had to sleep on the corner of the pillow with my nose and mouth over the edge just so I could breath. With this pillow I can sleep in the middle of the pillow and still breath. I am not sure of the mechanics of it all but probably has to do with the bounciness.
I currently own this same type of pillow and I love it sooo much so I decided to purchase the same pillow again. Well this is the same brand and size but it is flatter than the pillow that I currently own. it does still have that springy feel and it is semi-firm..maybe I was sent the medium density pillow instead of the firm pillow...not sure but overall it is a nice pillow, I can still get a good nights sleep on it, just wish that it was a little fluffier. I'd recommend it. also, this is the cheapest price that you will find this same brand of pillow on the internet...I've search for 2 years trying to find it for less than $60.00
I ha bought these for myself and I loved them. Then my husband and he was FINALLY happy with his pillows...first world problem, I know. So I bought some more for my kids, a year after the first order, and they haven't changed them yet, they are still great! To the manufacturer, don't change them, they need no tweeking, they are perfect.
