This is nothing like the Beauty Rest Extra-Firm pillows that are sold in the stores where their mattresses' are sold. This is NOT an extra-firm pillow, and it is nothing more than a cheap pillow that can be purchased at ******** for $$. Do not waste your time purchasing.
I've used firm latex foam pillows my whole life, but they are getting harder and harder to find in stores. I live in the Bay Area and the only place I know that sells them is ******- they sell "firm" "standard" and "king" sized. Their firm is not firm at all. Their standard is smaller than my old queen, and the king is way too big. In contrast, this Beauty rest here is more firm than the ******* version, though still not as firm as I would like. They just don't make them like they used to. I also bought the Queen sized here on Overstock, and it's bigger than the ******* Standard, but still smaller than my old Queen pillow, so that's frustrating. Still, it's the best I could find in any stores or online, so I'm happy with my purchase.
I love these pillows. They never loose their shape. They are soft but firm. I have used them for years and this purchase was my third set. They support your head and neck. I am a side and back sleeper and I never have any problems with my neck. If you are tired of mushy, non-supportive pillows, then this is the one for you.
I ordered these pillows because they were advertised as "Extra Firm Supportive" latex pillows. Beautyrest has always been a name I trusted, so I had no second thoughts about buying this product knowing it would be a high quality product. I received this product from Overstock on a very timely basis, but the pillows were not at all as advertised. They were neither extra firm or in the slightest bit supportive. Unfortunately my 11 year old latex pillows gave me more support than these. Not bad pillows if you are NOT looking for extra firm or supportive pillows...
If you want to lay your head on a pillow at night in which your head actually is supported, this is the pillow for you. The pillow does not wrap around your head and act to suffocate you as flimsy pillows do. They hold up EXTREMELY well and do not pack. The comfort of this pillow is amazing. The cover is removable for washing. I highly recommend this pillow for those that want a pillow to maintain its shape yet provide a restful night's sleep.
