This is a wonderful pillow. My neck and shoulders are never sore and I get a really good night's sleep. So far no issues with having a hot head at night. The pillow does have a slight smell to it, which is probably from being in a warehouse or could be the material it's made from. A little Febreze took care of that for me.
Both my husband and I have tried to make friends with these pillows. My husband gave up. He says its too high and too hard. I am still using it, but can't say I really like it. I was expecting the pillow to mold under my head more, however it does not really have enough "give" in the foam to be comfortable.
i bought this pillow for my grandson and he loved it. it is a firm and heavy pillow. the only thing i thought was lacking was the size of it. it is not a standard pillow size. it is smaller. however, it is a very good value considering the price. if you can't afford one of the more expensive type, then this is the pillow for you since it has all the qualities without the high price tag.
I recently purchased a new mattress constructed in a similar manner as this pillow. Since we choose the the firmest of the choices and love it, I thought I might be just as pleased with this pillow. I'm not unhappy, just not thrilled. I sleep just fine with it. And I can't say that about just any pillow. I have a closet full of rejected pillows in my search for THE ONE. I found it a couple of years ago and now it's time to replace it and the company is out of business. Anyway, I can and do fall asleep with this pillow and I wake up well rested. It's not fluffy at all and I think I miss that. My old pillow is firm but fluffy. Really lack of fluff is my only issue with this pillow. I'm going to give it a full week of use, before I decide to keep or add to the closet stash. If fluffy isn't important to you and you like a firm pillow, this is a great choice.
WOW!! I got this for my husband's Christmas present because he's been having such trouble sweating at night that it has been disturbing his rest, Well, this pillow addressed that issue perfectly!! No more wet bed head!! But, there was something else! We've been married for over 30 years and there isn't a more vigerous snorer anywhere in the world!!! ....well, at least until Christmas, 2012. The guy seems to have given it up. The pillow does not suggest that is a benefit. None of the material that I read addressed snoring. All I know is that my sleepytime serenades seem to be a thing of the past. Who'da thunk it? Thanks Bodipedic!! I have already recommended the pillow to folks from Conneticut to Colorado!! We're believers!
This is a really great pillow. When I can afford, will order another.The firmness is just right for me, and the memory foam with gel keeps the firmness the same. Does not get overly hot like some memory foam pillows. I got it when I ordered my new memory gel foam mattress and I am extremely pleased with both products!! Recommend it highly, even though it is a bit pricey!
Pillows are a personal thing, but after doing a lot of research - both in and out of stores - I believed I'd made a good choice. Not so. Way too hard. Perhaps I need to give it time, but I don't want to chance not being able to return it.
I purchased this pillow because I heard that the gel would help keep you cool. It really didn't. It is a very firm pillow and hard to sleep on your side with. I have neck problems and thought this pillow would help support it, but after 3 months of use I went back to my old latex foam pillow.
I have had the pillow for a few weeks now, and definitely like it. It feels a little more like a regular pillow, while still having the comfort of a memory foam pillow. Since it is not contoured, you can flip it, and keep the cold side on your face. It does have a smell for the first few days, but that does go away. If you are like me though, I recommend having another pillow on your bed as well.
