This is a good pillow for a stomach sleeper. In general, you should buy the soft one if you are a stomach sleeper, the medium one if you are a back sleeper, or the firm one if you are a side sleeper. I am a stomach sleeper, so I bought the soft one. At first I was worried that it was still too thick as it pretty well fills up my king size pillowcases, but it compresses to an appropriate thick for a stomach sleeper like me. I probably would like it even better if it was a little thinner, but with that being said, I have not had neck or back pain. It's also good to remember that the pillow is only one part of the equation. My wife and I replaced our old mattress that had developed divots where we sleep with a new very firm Simmons mattress (a very firm mattress has very little of the foam padding, which is the first part to wear out in my experience). We combined this very firm mattress with a 3" all-natural botanical latex topper. This has worked very well for us. I also like separating the topper from the mattress so that if one part wears out, we just replace that, rather than having to get a whole new mattress just because the foam layers are starting to wear out and develop divots. Our new topper did not fix our old mattress, it simply filled the contours of our old lumpy mattress. But on a new flat mattress, it is wonderful. I hope sharing my experience with the various factors that you need to take into account will help you to make an informed decision. There's nothing more frustrating than spending a lot of money on mattresses and pillows and still not sleeping any better -- hopefully my experience of what has worked for me and what hasn't will save you some cash and sleepless nights.
There are plenty of customer reviews for this particular pillow and none more are needed. I bought it based on the 12 customer reviews, all of which gave it a 5-star except one. I give it a 5-star, too, and would even give it a 10-star on a scale of 10. It's a terrific SOFT pillow, next to impossible to find. The sensation is incredibly comfortable and luxurious. I feel as if I'm floating on a pink cloud, somewhere over Shangri-la, when I wake up!! My recommendation now goes to Overstock.com: be sure to keep this pillow available and restock, when you run out of it. :-)
I had recently discovered latex pillows and purchased one from Overstock which I loved, but which was way too plump to actually sleep on (but great for propping up to read or watch TV in bed). I was unaware that they came in soft, medium, & firm versions - so it was my error not to check. I realized I preferred a soft latex pillow for sleeping, one more squooshy and flat - and when I saw this one online I ordered it. I was not disappointed - it's excellent!! Very comfy, but more piable and flatter than the firm one I'd ordered originally. This is the perfect pillow for a stomach steeper, or a side sleeper. I purchased a king size one so I could use it as a body pillow - it's fantastic!! Supports your neck, but is also soft and pillowy.....all in all I love this pillow and just purchased another!!!
Only buy this pillow if you are looking for a very soft pillow, perhaps for a stomach sleeper, or for someone who really doesn't need a pillow at all. It is lightweight and thin density and falls flat upon laying on it. It has no weird odors, which is the only benefit I saw in it. Also buyer beware, this pillow is considered "non-returnable," which is ridiculous when you are making such a subjective purchase, buying a pillow on-line, and can't test it for yourself ahead of time.
This is finally the pillow I've been looking for since I had one as a child. It's very soft, can be manipulated how you like, yet is supportive enough for side-sleepers like me. Unlike other stiff latex pillows, this is the real deal. Nothing can compare to Talalay latex, and this is the best price by far after extensive research. Highly recommend!
This is a very soft latex pillow. I have ordered other latex pillows and they were a bit too hard. This one is perfect. Although, it does require a large pillow case.

I have been having a heck of a time finding a pillow that my husband will use. He always complains about any new pillows I purchase and will not use them, instead choosing to use his old yucky pillows that are stained and flat "because they are more comfortable" he says. Finally after reading the reviews here I thought "perhaps I have found something that might work". I bought them knowing I could not return them, price was great and it was worth a shot, those old pillows he has are just gross. Anyway - so I told him we had to at least try one night with these...he agreed. These pillows are SOFT and bounce back. he tried one night and used it through the night. I asked the next morning. he said he needs a couple more nights with it. HE HAS NOT GONE BACK TO HIS OLD PILLOWS laying right beside the bed within arms reach. nadda he is USING THIS PILLOW every night and so am I! I love the way they bounce back and you do not have to fluff during the night AND they support the neck and IT'S WORKING FOR US! Hurray I can throw his old pillows away!!!
I went to many stores looking for the right pillow. I wanted something ultra soft that I would sink into just like a cloud. This pillow is perfect! Very soft but bounces right back as soon as I lift my head. I want to be surrounded by my pillow, I don't want to sleep on a rock. It virtually doesn't give much support, just lovely comfort. If you are looking for support, this is not your pillow, as least the soft one isn't; but if melting into your pillow is your thing, you will love this one. Great price compared to everything else I was looking at. The only other thing I found out there that was was acceptable was at Select Comfort for $$$. I like this one better at a 1/4 of the price.
I purchased these pillows for my husband, who has allergies and asthma and is particular about getting exactly the right pillow to sleep on (they were a gift for my being out of town for an extended period of time). One of my co-workers had purchased one and received it at work, so after getting a good idea of how it would feel and hearing very strong recommendations from others, I gave it a shot. Couldn't be happier. No allergy problems reported by husband, and he really enjoys them. Says they sleep very well. Only issue he had with them was they do have a scent when they first arrive. He let them air out on the back deck and they are fine. He likes them enough that I'm thinking about buying another for me while I'm gone. Because he doesn't wake up with neck, back and arm pain they ware worth the cost. Will be looking for more of these in the future.
If you are looking for a soft pillow that is totally scrunchable....this is it. It is high quality latex (natural material - rubber) and is very soft. Doesn't sleep hot, like memory foam. It provides JUST enough support, when back sleeping, so your head doesn't loll to the side, thus avoiding the stiff neck. When on your side, it is JUST the right height and you are able to scrunch up parts, corners, etc....to give you just the comfort you are looking for. I have tried all kinds of pillows, down, poly.... including other latex pillows. (memory foam is the worst!!) I didn't realize that latex came in different densities until I was shopping at a Sleep Train. They had latex pillows in 3 different thicknesses (densities). They were $80!!! I passed on them, but got the name of the manufacturer off the tag, then went online looking for the foam company ...Latex International; Talatech is their patented brand of latex. Bought 2 and both husband and I are very happy. Also, please note, latex is hypoallergenic. Bottom line....if you want a soft, moldable pillow....this is THE ONE!
I have ordered several of these pillows in different densities. Our family has extreme allergies and these pillows are the perfect answer. Latex foam is cooler to sleep on than regular memory foam. The quality of these pillows is excellent and I highly recommmend them. Follow the guideline suggestions for the type sleeper that you are. Latex seems to be a bit firmer than regular memory foam, so keep that in mind when ordering.
This is a supersoft foam pillow that is very 'squishable'. You can fold it and scrunch it and it pops right back into its original shape. I sleep either on my back or on my side and it gives just the right amount of support in either position. The only minor complaint I have is that I noticed a faint, odd odor the first night I slept on it. The next day I zipped the pillow and the cover that came on it into a second pillow cover and then put a regular pillowcase on it. I have not noticed the odor since.

THhs is a very comfortable pillow! I sleep on my stomach, but it was perfectly good, even though it "bounces back>' Great for people with "down" sensitivity. I do not have that problem, but my husband is allergic, so this was a good solution.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? N/A
- How is the quality of the product? EXcellent
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes.
Love these pillows. After purchasing two for my bed, I reordered two more for the guest bedroom. The pillow provide support and at the same time are soft enough that I can ball and nestle my neck into and then they bounce right back. Great pillows!!! I have been looking for these for years.
My husband stopped snoring. This wonderfully soft latex pillow contours nicely around your head to give you support without resistance. I had expensive down pillows that are easy to bunch around you head, but you spend the night readjusting them. The latex pillow contours nicely no matter what position you sleep in. I'm a side sleeper and now I just roll from side to side without having to bunch up the pillow around my neck. What a difference!
My most favored bed pillow was recently mauled by my beloved beagle mix. I checked the tag to identify the make, found another at Overstock.com and ordered it with much anticipation of a good rest on a similar pillow. I was disappointed. The original pillow, classified as soft, provided light support but maintained its shape. This new version is a latex pillow mimicking a feather pillow. The pillow rises around my head and I feel it up to my ears. However, I CANNOT RETURN IT, due to the nature of the item. I'll shop locally and hope for better luck.
