These pillows are described on Overstock as "luxurious memory foam pillows". However, they are NOT memory foam. What is memory foam? See here: http://*** Memory foam is a viscous, dense synthetic material that conforms to your body kind of like very soft clay. Ordinary foams simply compress, like a wet sponge. Now perhaps you like wet sponges for pillows. If so, fine - to each his own. But if you are looking for memory foam pillows, don't buy these pillows.
These pillows are pretty nice, but not exactly what I had in mind when I purchased them... especially not for that price. These pillows do offer a little more support than regular pillows, but I was hoping for the support of a memory foam pillow.
I was expecting a pillow constructed of two layers with the firm support I like but more cushioning on top (like a pillow-top mattress). What I got was two separate pillows, one very firm, one a medium-firm memory foam, stuffed tightly into a single covering. The result is an extremely hard pillow that stands up on its own -- more like a sofa cushion than a bed pillow. The square gusseted sides increase this impression. It can be shoved into a standard pillow case but with difficulty. It's useless as a sleeping pillow but I've found that it works as a back pillow on my daybed so it's not a total loss. Strange.
I had hoped that these pillows were a king size version of my memory foam clusters pillows but unfortunately they are not. Ended up going to **** and buying two more of the standard size memory foam cluster pillows (2 for ***) to fill up my king size pillow cases. The memory loft pillows are on the guest bed now.
I was thrilled to finally receive these pillows;they were not the King I wanted, but the quality & comfort surpassed the size issue. At last, my head doesn't sink all the way down to the mattress;my neck & head are well supported by this pillow. The puffy side reverses to the memory foam side. A really unique quality because you always get support on each side you use. The cotton pillow protector is a bonus. I'm very happy with them.
