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.Read More
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!!!Read More
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. :-)Read More
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.Read More
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!Read More
Sometimes I feel like the princess in the tale of the princess and the pea--no pillow is ever "just right." --that is until this one. I've been using it for two weeks and it's perfect! Normally I have a problem with them being too hard or too firm and I get a stiff neck, but this one has the the right amount of support and give so that my head is cushioned. I liked it so much that I bought two for my parents.Read More
This is NOT "memory foam. This is the foam that "springs back" when you lift your head. I love it because my head stays higher than my neck - which is what I think IS the purpose of a pillow. I DO like this "soft" density if you were new to this style of a pillow. It is very subtle, very similar to an expensive, down-alternative style that is relatively firm, without being "rocklike." I also like the medium density. If you were not sure you were ready for this pillow, I would go with the "soft." If you remembered sleeping on one of these somewhere before, or as a kid, and liked it, get the medium, its more like what I remember when there was only one choice.Read More
I'm a stomach sleeper and have found it quite difficult to find a pillow good for me. Have always used down until now. I'm very happy with this and would highly recommend. It's also less expensive than a down pillow so I won all the way around.Read More
This pillow is very soft and fluffy , but may be too soft for side sleepers.Read More
This pillow is not nearly as dense a foam as the pillows I am replacing and is lighter weight. Although the pillow is comfortable enough, only time will tell if it will last as long as the more dense latex pillow it replaced (that lasted ten years).Read More

How can you tell these are soft density pillows? There are no markings on the bag or pillow.
From the picture, it does not look like the pillow itself has a tag on it. This would be the same for the packaging. However, even though not marked this is a soft density pillow.
If you've used regular foam pillows in the past, you can immediately feel the difference.
are these pillow made from only botanically derived latex, or is it a blend?
It is a blend.
How to Pick a Pillow
Even if you have a top-of-the-line mattress and an 800 thread count sheet set, your bed is not likely to be comfortable without the right pillow tucked under your cheek. Nothing ruins a good night's sleep like a bad pillow. Unfortunately, it's easy to underestimate the value of a good pillow. Not only do good pillows add aesthetic value to your bed, but they can also be the difference between a restful night or an aching back and neck. Pillows come in different shapes, sizes and firmness. Take a look below to learn how to pick a pillow.
Bed Sheet Thread Count Fact Sheet
The thread count of bed sheets refers to the number of threads per square inch of fabric. For example, if a square inch of fabric in a 300-thread count sheet with a standard weave were examined closely, 150 vertical threads and 150 horizontal threads would be counted, for a sum total of 300. The higher the thread count, the softer and smoother the sheets will be. Thread count is an important consideration to take when choosing a new set of sheets, but it should not be used as a sole indicator of quality. Equally important in choosing a bed sheet is the type and quality of the materials used as well as the fabric's weave.

How to Wash Throw Pillows
Part of keeping a clean house is making sure all of your decorative accessories are clean. Throw pillows covered in delicate fabrics, such as wool or silk, will have to be dry-cleaned, as will throw pillows stuffed with down or feathers. Foam-filled throw pillows with cotton covers or other washable materials, however, can be washed -- some even by machine. Nevertheless, even if a pillow appears washable, always consult the washing instruction label before attempting to wash a throw pillow -- or you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you remove the pillow from the washing machine.

Pair a down pillow with a down-filled comforter and down mattress pad for the ultimate in warm, supported sleep. Down pillows mold to the shape of your head, regardless of your sleeping position.
