Having purchased and slept on these latex pillows for several years, I wanted to try a soft...well, it is in fact VERY soft! But as a second or third pillow on the bed it will make a nice addition. The firms also are VERY firm...a medium is probably the best for me, of which I have 3.....Overstock.com is my go to for latex pillows, and have not been disappointed yet!
I have back and hip pain and have closets full of pillows made from every conceivable material. From buckwheat to memory foam to down. This is a flat type springy latex but you can still scrunch it. It does put my head and neck in a crooked position while lying on my side. I bought 2, one for head and one for between my knees. Will probably be buying more for guest bed and spares. Good value.
This is a very comfortable pillow and needed no breaking in. We highly recommend the soft. After purchasing one for my husband and seeing how much he liked it, I purchased one for me. Now we are buying two for each bed in the house. Great service from Overstock.com.
This is the 4th one of these that I have purchased. Mine kept getting stolen, so now that everyone in my house has their own, I'm hoping to keep this one for myself! This pillow is high loft, so you get that wonderful mushy feeling when you put your head on it, but it isn't so high or firm that it's uncomfortable on your neck. LOVE this pillow!!
I need a very soft pillow that "gives" enough to keep my neck aligned, but also is supportive. This pillow was the perfect solution for me. I had tried numerous "memory foam" pillows that were very heavy and hard and did not have the springy responsiveness of this latex pillow. They caused me no end of pain and suffering in my neck and shoulder, even the very expensive Temperpedic are just the same as any other memory foam; stiff, hard, heavy and slow to respond. I have had no pain in my neck or shoulder since I started using this pillow and I will never go back to the so-called temperature sensitive foam products. There's a reason that latex pillows have been used and recommended for so long. They are hypoallergenic and they work.
I have never paid much money for my pillows, which is probably why they last about a month. I took a chance on the soft one for myself and a medium for my husband, who's a back sleeper. I am so glad I did. It is very soft and fluffy, but not so much it hurts my neck. The memory foam core allows the pillow to fluff right back up again when I rise. It's only been a week, so time will tell, but so far, I am totally satisfied and have a feeling this pillow will last for quite some time.
I first bought pillows from somewhere else boy my husband and I found them way too thick so that our heads were at an angle. They were also really too firm for us. So I returned them, and ordered these pillows. I was so pleased when these arrived!!! They are incredibly soft, yet support our heads really comfortably. I'm a side sleeper and he's a back sleeper and these pillows work great for both of us. If you like really firm pillows, these may seem too soft for you, but we love them!
I should have bought a medium, but after receiving one set of pillows that was too hard, I wanted to make sure these were what I wanted. They are a bit softer than my old pillows, but nice and comfy. I need these for my neck and they fit the bill.
