I wouldn't recommend them for frequent use. I have several of them and put 2 on my own bed for a while. They flattened out and lost their density after a year or so. They're more appropriate for a guest room bed where they aren't going to be slept on with much frequency, I also used them to stuff the pillow shams in my guest room bedding.
I bought the medium density and it's too firm for me. I'm basically a side or stomach sleeper, so I probably should have ordered the softer density. My husband likes the medium, though. I woke up with a neck ache or headache and was glad I waited before tossing my old pillow! Other than the medium being firmer than I expected, they're good pillows, nice quality for the price.
This is the fourth or fifth time that I have ordered these pillows. I order either firm or extra-firm - they stand up to a good night's sleep. I have washed them, but that is usually the end as the filling shifts. Good value. Will order more when I need more pillows.
I slep on these the samenightI recieved them (they had no bad smell). The are firm (but not too firm) and keep their shape. I would recommend these to a friend. The med size is perfect for me, I feel like the next size up would of been too much.
Love the gusseted sides! Hope they really do help keep the pillow cooler, but I won't know until summer comes. The feel is definitely one of a good quality pillow. I chose the FIRM option because I'm a side sleeper. The loft is just right, it feels like a down pillow. Not too high in my view, but I usually sleep with two pillows. I hate my head feeling flat on the bed.
After a lot of shopping for new pillows, I have found this to be the best, especially for the price! The inner material is most like a synthetic down. It is lofty and supportive. We bought the firm ones and are primarily side sleepers. The pillows are perfect in size and support for medium to large men and women who sleep on their sides or back. The extra firm variety would probably be too big unless for a very broad (size 48 and above) side sleepers. It's been a few weeks and with occasionally fluffing the pillows are holding their shape and loft very well.
We selected the "firm" option, which was in the center of the three firmnesses. I am primarily a side sleeper while my husband is primarily a back sleeper. Both of us are satisfied with the pillow. Of course we've only owned them for about a week and cannot speak to longevity, but they seem good quality.
These pillows are just what I was looking for in a pillow. I have neck problems and had used a latex pillow. However, the last few I had seemed to disintegrate. The guest pillows I had were too hard or too fat. This pillow is perfect. The gusset positions my head just right and is firm, but nice and soft against my face. Great buy since the cost for 2 is about the same as for one of the other pillows I've seen. Very happy!
