This is not the same quality as the TempurPedic pillows we are all familiar with. Those are 4-5 lbs in density; these are 3 lbs, and there is a big difference. The material is not as soft, and it does not hold the shape in the way that high quality memory foam is known for. The "Oversized" shape of these pillows is also less comfortable than the expensive ones I have tried in stores -- they feel like overstuffed pillows. On my traditional mattress, they worked OK, but when I upgraded to a (flatter) memory foam mattress, they were MUCH to high. They are also not tall enough in the chin-to-forehead direction, so my head does not fit comfortably in the hollow. Finally, these pillows do not come with a fabric cover, so they have a very cheap appearance. They do basically fit in your average pillow case, but they look like the inside of couch cushions. I would highly recommend shopping around some of the other higher-density options on this site before buying these. They are very cheap, but probably not worth the money.
I thought this was a great value because I got 2 pillows for the price I would have paid for 1 in a store on sale. However, in comparison with the contoured memory foam pillow I left at a hotel, this one is not as comfortable. I've used it for 3 weeks now and sometimes I actually get a stiff neck. My husband stopped using his altogether.
I purchased this pair to replace a single contour pillow. These pillows are thin (overall height) and somewhat dense making for a hard and flat surface. Side sleepers will probably find that their head hangs low near the lower shoulder. Not recommended for large framed persons.
I purchased 2 pairs of these pillows for my parents, my brother and myself. At the very first night of using it, I experienced a neck pain, and I counldn't sleep, so I changed to my old pillow. I thought that it was only me had this neck pain, but my parents and my brother had the same experience. I would not recommend this product to anyone. It just wastes your money.
These pillows are great! When I first got them, I was unsure by looking at them (they just didn't *look* comfortable) but I sleep so well with them. The perfect amount of support and give... I am so pleased I recently ordered the memory foam matress topper as well.
The pillow and zipper cover appear to be made well. However, they are too big, heavy and cumbersome for us. We tried to sleep on them and tossed them off the bed within an hour and slept on the old pillows. Perhaps I should have ordered the smaller pillows.
These pillows are not good. Don't waste your money. They don't provide the support, density or recovery that I expect from quality memory foam. They are bare foam without fabric covers and they are not comfortable. These were a real surprise because Overstock is usually fabulous.
I bought two of these for my adult daughter. She used them for about a week and said they were too firm for her. She gave them to my teenage granddaughter and she loves them! I suppose the comfort depends on your sleeping position as my daughter is a side sleeper and granddaughter is a back sleeper. I used one when I visited and found it to be very comfortable, but I too am a back sleeper.
I was disappointed with the type of material that came with my memory foam pillows. I expected a more Tempurpedic velour finish to the fabric, and instead, it is just like egg crate foam and picks up hair and lint like crazy, since I did not purchase covers separately.
I find the pillows rather disappointing. The density of the material does not afford enough support - I thought 3 lbs. would be enough. Difficult to know in advance from the advertising copy. Also, I expected them to have a cover. I wonder if it's possible to exchange them for better quality, denser material.
I ordered these pillows at the request of my chiropractor and can honestly say that I havn't had to see him much since I started sleeping on them. The quality is standard foam, which is why I only gave it 4 stars, but the function is great. The pillow has two contour 'humps'. One is smaller than the other, and I recommend using the larger size for back and side sleeping. If you're a tummy sleeper these pillows might not be for you since they tend to prop you up a bit. Overall, definitely worth the $$!!!
Pillows are flat and offer no neck support. I have a set of memory foam pillows that I purchased over five years ago. I ordered these to replace my old set. These pillows are less than half the thickness of my old set and do not come with a cloth cover. Evidently I did not read the product description closely. They are as thin as they appear in the picture. My bad for disregarding a visual of the item. Spend a bit more and purchase a pillow that is at least double the thickness of this set.
I have had memory foam pillows for some time, and this one is too thin and too soft. Actually used it by putting it with the old one that had gotten too soft over time. Perhaps the best use of this would be to bolster another pillow, or perhaps for use on a sofa for support.
I got these because I pinched something in my neck and a week later I was still hurting. Our pillows were in need of replacing anyway, so I ordered these. The price was EXCELLENT as we were paying close to this price for lesser pillows. My neck pain was gone within 3 days after receiving them. They do take some getting used to as they are much flatter than a standard pillow. I tend to be more comfortable laying on my back with them, but they are good for side sleeping too. I would say to definitely get the oversized ones (24"). I would think the shorter ones would take more getting used to. I gave appearance a "4" as they do look flat in standard pillow cases (personally, I could care less as they work, but some people might).
Having already purchased 2 contour pillows a few years ago and was unexpectedly surprised at the comfort, I decided to replace them with the same. (We replace our pillows every two to three years). I didn't want to leave to chance the possibility of getting another set that may not have been as comfortable so I ordered this same set. I've since found that there are other places that sell them for a bit less, but I never researched it. As for the comfort, you have to get used to the idea of a different design to a pillow, but in the long run you will find that it is a far better position for neck and back and a much more comfortable sleep. I highly recommend these.
