These pillow were not at ALL what I expected. I had tried my sisters, and have had good luck with O.S., but I was totally disappointed with these. They look like a raw-cut piece of foam, no covering on them and hard as a rock. I can't use them for pillows...so use them as support behind my futon couch.
I expected it to let my head sink in a little bit like the memory foam pillows I tried in stores. I slept on it for about a week thinking maybe I needed to break it in a little bit or give myself time to get used to it. It was just as uncomfortable on night 7 as it was on night 1. It's just a very hard pillow, and this is coming from someone who prefers firm pillows.
I have neck problems, wake up with neck cramp from my pillow. I bought the nova foam contour pillow loved the memory foam but the pillow was too thick great for sleeping on back but not for side or stomach which I sleep in all 3 positions throughout the night. Have bought so many different pillows with no success. It has been frustrating not to mention the expense. My husband has been having the same problem, so I tried this pillow for the husband and me. The price was great and the pillows are wonderful! My husband and I are no longer waking up with crinks in our neck! Highly recommend! I'm buying more for my kids and guest rooms!
I can't use these for sleeping because they are too thick and firm - my head does not sink into them like I was hoping-and the pillows so so thick that my head is propped up too much to be comfortable. They are fine for propping yourself up and watching TV, but that's about it. I wish I would have chosen the contour ones instead.
