Up until 6 months ago I didn't even realize socks came in more than 1 size, so maybe I'm not the best person to be reviewing anything.. But after sleeping on department store pillows for 20 years, this thing is fantastic. The medium works for me and the firm works for my wife. Normally I prefer firmer anything (couch/bed/mattress etc) but the lift was a little too high for my (apparently) 'delicate' neck. Maybe after I hit the gym for a year I'll change my mind. The medium works very well for me. It's probably meant for 'back' sleepers but I also use it on my side and my stomach with pretty good results. It stays very cool which is important to me and so far after about 6 months I don't feel like it's lost any shape at all. I guess there's some slight synthetic smell at first but it wasn't unpleasant to me. I can't really smell it now unless I take the pillowcase off and stick my face in it—which maybe I do sometimes, don't judge. Anyway, if your current pillows are garbage this will be a majestic experience. If you're picky about your pillows, well, relax. Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.
I received two completely different pillows when I ordered two of these. One was thin and firm, and the other was thick and soft. No telling which was the medium density I ordered. Unfortunately, it cost me $** to return them. Steer clear of these pillows.
I have normal Body Mass index, not overweight or obese, and sleep on the back and the side. This pillow is too firm for me. I get me one with soft density instead. The king size pillow is about 7 inches thick. Whether this medium density pillow is for you depends on many pounds per square inch you are exerting on this pillow.
Medium density pillow is much too soft. No way this is a medium density. Wish that I had paid a bit more for a better pillow. Pillow covering itself it nice and soft. Overall, I am very disappointed. I have been saving to buy a decent pillow.
The pillow arrived in a timely matter, it was packaged just as I expected. It did have an odor but after it was removed from the plastic wrap and I left it outside in the sun for several hours the smell was gone. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves a latex foam rubber pillow.
I buy several pillows a year. I've tried all kinds, and they seem comfortable at first, but get hard and flat after a short time. This is a great pillow. It is firm enough to support the neck and head when I'm lying on my back, and also soft enough to sleep on my side without putting too much pressure on my ear and face. I'm very pleased with it.
The pillow arrived and I was cautiously optimistic after some of the reviews. I was delighted. There was no smell, I slept on it the first night and it was wonderful. It does give a bit, but your head certainly doesn't fall to the bed. I sleep mainly on my back and sometimes on my side. I have had excellent sleep since getting this pillow. I never realized how much difference a pillow could make. Very very happy and will be buying 7 more for the rest of the beds in the house.
I had a medium density latex foam pillow for about 12 years and needed to replace it. I purchased a pillow (on other website) thinking it was medium denisty when, in fact, it was firm. What a rock. My head rested on it like a pebble on Stone Mountain. Found this pillow, order it, and received it in only a couple of days. It is a dream. My head sinks into it but does not bottom out. It is perfect. [sigh] Oh, and it does not have a latex or rubber smell to it at all.
I greatly prefer a foam pillow to one of the synthetic or 'down alternative' pillows. And by 'foam pillows,' I do not mean the gel memory foam pillows or any of the specially formed 'anti-snore' pillows that are everywhere. These plain old foam pillows don't flatten as you sleep and give your head and neck good support overnight. In particular, this pillow has just the right amount of give and support - and as I've described it to my spouse - it is the perfect pillow that I've been looking for for years. Tried so many others over the years that I can't keep count, including those gel memory foam ones. This one was simple and straightforward - and exceptionally comfortable. And I also tried (and kept) the firm density pillow this firm makes - good, but much more dense, making it a bit hard to use for regular sleeping unless you prefer a very firm pillow. This medium density pillow is the 'Goldilocks' solution for me - not too soft; not too firm; just right. I have actually considered buying a second one and storing it away for the future in case my current one starts to wear out for some reason - it's just that good and after so much searching for the right pillow, I'd be afraid that it might not be available in the future.
I ordered my first pillow based on a friend's recommendation. I ordered the medium density and found it to be perfect for me! (I'm typically a side sleeper) I have never paid that much for a pillow before, but found after a few night's sleep it was well worth it!! I've had mine for almost a year and it has completely retained it's shape and is just as comfy as when I first got it! My kids have been begging me to buy them each one too - imagine two 12 year olds asking for pillows for Christmas! Christmas wishes granted, they will have them under the tree this year!!!
Pillow arrived promptly. I've been sleeping on the pillow for a couple of weeks and so far it has retained its shape. I think the medium density could be thicker but overall I am pleased with this pillow. I have a very sensitive head and sinus problems. So far I have not woken up with the neck pain I was experiencing from my other (numerous) pillows. Sinus seem to be ok. I would recommend this pillow.
