I bought two of these - one for my bedroom and one for in the family room AND I'M SO GLAD I ORDERED TWO!! PRICE IS EXCELLENT for the high quality of these pillows. The "comfort" is in between medium and firm- perfect! Came with explicit instructions on using the pillow for the first time, on-going care, and the 5 year warranty - what it covers/what it doesn't cover. I couldn't wait for evening to try them out so I put on the body pillow cover I also ordered and tried it out - OMG! WONDERFUL!
I received this pillow several weeks ago. It seems to be constructed of pockets of gel foam and despite numerous attempts at pounding it into some consistent pillow-like form, ...it remains LUMPY! This pillow and I just cannot get comfortable together! I have found two great uses for it however... My bed is up against a window and the pillow sits at the head of the bed and does an excellent job of blocking the cold draft. And each day when I make the bed I get a great workout beating this beast into a shape that looks OK on the bed! I would never recommend this product!
I have always slept with a body pillow but within a short time they collapse. I finally decided to invest in a memory foam body pillow and I am so excited to say it was worth every cent. This pillow is huge, fluffy, heavy and always pops back up to its original shape. I feel like it's gonna last forever and that just makes sense to invest in this pillow instead of buying the cheap $** ones at your local store yearly.
I had the product over two months and does serve the purpose of helping aligning my body when I sleep. But the issue Is washed the covering for the second time and the stitching is starting to unravel.. For the price I figure it would last longer.. great concept poor quality cover..
I was so excited to get this pillow...until i opened the box. It has three layers and its impossible to keep the foam center from being flat like a board...have had out of the package for 3 days and cant get it to fluff up. It feels like it weighs about 50 lbs and is impossible to get comfortable :( so not what i was hoping for. Hoping i can get a refund
Loving my pillow! I have always been more of a stomach sleeper but because of back and shoulder issues needed to change to a side sleeper since flat on the back was out of the question. My sister told me her boyfriend had this pillow and how large it was. Sounded perfect for me as other pillows would always sink in or flatten out and wouldn't cover the length of me (5'3"). This pillow is soft enough to cushion and firm enough to not completely flatten. It is heavier than most pillows, but a good thing in my opinion as it doesn't slip out from under me or move anywhere at all unless I purposely move it. At first I really noticed the cooling, but as it has gotten warmer this summer I don't notice the cooling as much. I believe the ambient room temperature has a lot to do with how cool it feels, but it doesn't seem to really absorb my body heat like my bed does which was super important because I can't stand to sleep too warm. Other reviewers have mentioned it being hard to find a pillowcase to fit, but all I did was put a king sized pillowcase on each end.
I thought this would be a perfect replacement for the el cheapo body pillow I've been using. But, it's so heavy I can't use it at all. I didn't bother trying to send it back since it weighs "a ton". I bought another one that seems like it will work better. I gave it two stars because it could be very good for someone who'd keep it in place and not be moving it in and out of bed.frequenetly and for someone who needs a lot of support.
I have a hard time getting sleep and always hurt during the night. I have tried many different pillows that were suppose to relieve sciatica pain at night and keep you in a position. A lot of them were pillows made to go between the legs. They always flatened, moved, and never worked. I stumbled across this pillow when searching for a good body pillow to try out. I read a few reviews about it being too heavy, too big, too lumpy, etc. but figured I would try it out anyway due to the majority of the comments being good. Due my sciatica pain I am a side sleeper so keep that in mind. When it showed up the box was easy to carry and seemed light weight. When I took the pillow out I had to unfold it. The pillow case is awesome. It is very fluffy and comfortable. I unzipped it out of curiosity. This is not a pillow you can use without a case. It is made out of gel and foam bits. It is not one solid mass. I ended up beating the pillow to even it out and let it lay over night to get it's shape and fluff up. I have had this pillow for about a month now and I have had the best sleep ever. I don't hurt at night anymore and wake up painless. I also don't toss and turn during the night trying to get comfy. This pillow is very comfortable. It does not make me hot and sweaty, it stays in place, and is big enough to use by itself. It is heavier than any pillow that I have ever used, but to me it didn't seem like a hassle. I am 5'2 115 pounds. So by no means am I big and strong. I carry it to the living room and use it to lay on the couch. Once again let me remind you I am a side sleeper and sleep with this between my legs with my top leg bent and the leg under the pillow straight. If you suffer from sciatica then you know the position very well. Anytime I am not using it both of my dogs sneak and sleep on it. They are 18 pounds each and both fit on it comfortably. I am debating on buying them one to use as a bed. The foam inside seems to melt into one big mass, but really they are still individual bits. I highly recommend this to side sleepers and sciatica suffers. Since the pillow case is white I ended up using 2 regular pillow cases putting one on each side and having them over lap in the middle. Works great for me. =)
I have purchased countless items from Overstock and have ALWAYS been very pleased with all the products, until now. This body pillow is HORRIBLE. It is heavy, lumpy and smelly. I am used to being able to easily move/adjust a body pillow as I sleep. Forget it with this pillow! It is just too heavy. It is awkward to have it in bed and try to get comfortable with it. I recently had major surgery and cannot drive, so I put this thing back in the box and dragged it to the curb. A COMPLETE waste of my money!!!
