We replaced our well past dead king size pillows with these. They are our first memory foam pillow, so I read a lot of reviews before ordering. I didn't want something too tall, or too hard, as we like to sleep on our sides, and me on my stomach. The pillows are great. While somewhat smaller than your standard king size pillow................ that is the only negative thing I can say. We are very happy with the purchase, and would easily purchase them again. Are they pricey................. a bit. But then, any good quality pillow is. Just say yes !!!
The pillows arrived shrink wrapped, so I opened them and allowed them to air and to expand. They did air out in no time, but absolutely no expansion. These pillows are flat, If that is your thing, flat pillows, then these are a must. The king pillows have the true king length, but the width is very narrow, so you will have quite a lot of play using your king sized pillow cases. I got the medium firmness, and they feel great, but not enough pillow to actually sleep on. For me, you would need to double up to sleep comfortably. Not what I wanted to do, so off to find a true king sized memory foam pillow that is actually true to size and not flat.
I ordered the firm king size and regret that I didn't just go with the medium as these pillows are very, very firm and I think it will take quite a while for them to break in a bit. I decided to keep them as it would be to difficult sending them back as the packaging is like shirnk wrap and you would never be able to resend them in original packaging.
I purchased the medium firmness pillows for my husband, but although he liked the feel of them, he was sensitive to the smell, even after we aired the pillows for several days. I could not detect the same scent that he was sensitive to, and found the pillows to be very comfortable -- in fact, more so than down pillows that I purchased for myself. My head sinks into my pillow in a way that is relaxing, and I have gotten very good sleep with it.
I bought the "soft" ones and they are quite firm. They take some getting used to and I am not absolutely sure they are memory foam or if they are just regular latex foam. They don't seem to have much memory. I am used to them now and other pillows seem too squishy for me. I like that they don't squish flat and support your head well.
I debated a number of times before I ordered these pillows. I finally ordered them and I am glad I did. I was using a standard size contour foam pillow on my side of a king size bed. I liked the pillow, but it did not fit the bed. These pillows fill the king space and are just as comfortable for sleeping as my old pillow. My husband needs to use two pillows for health reasons and he is now using one of the new pillows as one of the two and likes it a lot. I wasn't sure about the firmness choice when I ordered so I ordered "medium" and it is perfect for me. I did let the pillows air out for about four days before I used them. I also sprayed them lightly with Febreeze when I opened them because I was concerned about the foam odor. By the time I put them them on the bed, there was no odor. These pillows were a great buy and definitely meet my needs.

I bought this pillow set to accompany my Serta 4lb density pillow topper (totally awesome). I didn't want a pillow that was to soft and especially didn't want a firm pillow so I opted to go with the medium pillows. When I received them they seemed hard but were wrapped together very tightly so that I couldn't tell what they were going to feel like until I opened them, I also thought that they would expand like my topper did. They second I opened them I could tell they were wrong for me. For a medium I would have expected much softer. When you lay on these your head hardly sinks in and my neck feels like it is extremely elevated to the point that I can feel it deep into my shoulders and it is just completely out of the question to sleep with these. The only use I have found for these boulders is using them to go behind my back when I am sitting up watching TV in bed...
