Both my husband and I found the firmness of this follow painful. You definitely cannot sleep on your back with this pillow and I think it's even to firm for your side. I'm going to order another soft one as I do like the type of pillow.
Great pillow. I've bought one previously and liked it so much wanted to buy another. This one was a little firmer than the first, even though it is the exact same pillow. It does smell when you take it out of the box. The smell goes away in a day or so. I plan on buying several more for the rest of the family.
This pillow is THICK. It would be great for back sleepers. I'm a side sleeper and while I like thick pillows, it's a bit too thick for me but I'm getting used to it. It can also be a bit on the hot side, even with the venting. I bought a cooling mat and use that with the pillow so now it's not so hot but it does make it a bit heavy. I've got to say that it appears to be very durable so it should last for many years.
I have loved latex pillows since childhood. I was so excited to find them and the price is amazing....most pillows comparable to this sell for$70+. I received it and LOVE it. I had it delivered to my work...and my co-workers felt it and decided to buy several. Now they are believers as well. If you don't like for your head to sink deeply into a pillow the "firm" is just right for you.
My husband and I love these pillows for different reasons, but we both love them--he says it's the best pillow he's ever had. He is a back sleeper and likes to feel firmly supported, and this pillow does that (it also supports him when he's on his side). I, unfortunately, have a terrible time with pillows because I'm a back/side/stomach sleeper, and no one has yet come up with a rotisserie-style bed so I have constantly had neck and back pain. I start out liking something, but before long, the same old problems come up. Not so with this pillow--I've had it for about four months, and find I don't sleep on my stomach as often, perhaps because I'm sleeping well on my back. The pillow keeps it shape all through the night. I have the queen size, my husband has the king, and I can't tell them apart unless I look at length--they are very close to the same depth. I will need to buy another couple to have as spares--we don't want to be without these pillows again.
