The pillows are thinner than most, but that helps for back sleepers. I read some of the negative reviews, but decided that these were positives for me. I like the lower bulk of the pillows. However, they have a prominent waffle design that is less desirable, and as one person stated, they come with absolutely no cover. It would help to have a quilted pillow cover in addition to the normal pillowcase to offset the feeling of the waffle. Other than that, I really like them. They probably wouldn't work well for shams, as they are thinner, and would not fill out the sham. But for sleeping, they are really good (except for the prominent waffle pattern).
These are NOT pillows. Memory foam??? Very thin. You can accomplish the same feeling by buying a flat piece of foam at a fabric store for a lot less money. Yes, they are soft, however, they flatten completely when you lay on them. No support. No pillow protector covers. Only good thing about this transaction is that Overstock took them back.
Not memory foam at all...these are just regular foam pillows. The only reason we kept them is b/c my partner does not mind them. I would NEVER buy them again or recommend. This is my first o.co purchase...I'll think twice next time. -Brian
I was very disappointed with these pillows-they were advertised as 4.5" thick-both pillows together were a stretch to call them 4.5" thick!! I was ashamed to give them as a gift but the recipient was polite about their poor quality or I would have RETURNED them immediately. I had not opened them prior to gift wrapping them but my children assured me that they would expand to the advertised thickness once the foam pillows were unwrapped and allowed to "breathe". There was NO expansion-they remained VERY thin. I thought they were a reasonable price until I actually visualized them. I made a poor financial savings choice and once again-goes to prove you get what you pay for-NOT MUCH!
paper thin, both pillows stacked together were delivered to my house and fit between my screen door and front door, ridiculous product now because I have spent the money, I will need to purchase a second set to add to the first set to even begin to fill my pillowcase and it is not memory foam
