I waited to give these 3 months of use before giving a rating. Some pillows go flat so quickly. Not this Croscill pillow! My husband & I never agree on pillows - he likes softer pillows - while I need firmer ones due to cervical issues. These pillows suit both of our needs! They are firm, without being to hard - soft, w/out going flat. I am going to replace all of the pillows in our home with these, that is how much we love them! Try them - you won't regret it!
This item doesn't have an accurate description. It is a nice REGULAR pillow but definitively NOT a memory foam pillow. The picture shows a hand mark but the pillow I received doesn't do that. Other than not being a memory foam pillow, it is a good sized pillow and some people who haven't had a memory foam pillow before might be happy with it.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a bad memory foam, it only has a regular foam inside which is NOT a memory foam
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate
For someone very picky about the pillow this one is perfect softness on one side but the memory foam provides just the right amount of firmness.

I suffer from very bad spinal problems, the main concern is getting the right pillow to sleep on. I honestly have some 18 different pillows in the house trying each ones to suit my neck. Fed up of changing pillows every three nights I decided to try the Croscill. It offers memory foam for stability plus the downy side too. It can be used memory side up ( as I did the first night ) or downy side with the memory foam on the mattress side. It has taken me four alternative nights to settle to the new pillow and what a difference it makes. I can now say I have found a pillow to suit my needs. Soft to my neck but firm underneath. Definately the correct pillow height for my neck to ensure a restful sleep. Another more expensive pillow I bought at the same time is not as comfortable as this one. I recommend anyone with spinal problems to try this one and experience the difference for themselves. Excellent quick service from the supplier too.
Love these pillows but in time the foam moves and is no longer evenly distributed across the down-like part. It's very difficult to get it back how it belongs and it reverts quickly. The "down alternative" is bits of polyester fluff that gets loose and make s a mess inside the cover. But they are very comfortable.
PROS: Excellent materials used, careful assembly of same, quality workmanship. But...... CONS: Too thick for comfort, too stiff for comfort -- very simply, not comfortable. And after all, comfort is necessary for good sleep, right? Right.
Worst pillow ever. Not recommended. Gave me neck pain. Not what I was expecting.

I love, love, love this pillow! I love that it has two different "stuffings." One side is somewhat soft and cuddly, and the other side lends a bit more support. With my neck problem, I sometimes need to switch from soft to firm. I've also noticed that when I need to sleep in my hair rollers, the softer side makes it so much more comfortable. I hardly notice that I'm wearing them. Before I bought this pillow, I had to pay the price of tossing and turning all night just to have a nice, long-lasting hairdo the next day! Not anymore. I am so happy that I decided on this pillow. It took a while to select from all of the choices, and it seems that I chose the right one! I'm very happy with my purchase.
Best pillow I have slept on. So far so good. I did have to wash it before I slept on because the packaging was ripped when it got here. There was a black smudge on the outer cover. So I will tell you that it washes perfectly! Other than the poor packaging, I give it 2 thumbs up.
The memory foam half of the pillow is already hardening/stiffening. I bought a similar pillow in the past and after a couple of years, the memory foam side got stiff. The foam in this pillow feels like that one did after a year of use.
I purchased this as a gift for a child who is battling cancer and needed a new pillow. Service was very fast. The item shipped promptly and arrived two days ahead of schedule, in plenty of time for Christmas. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable pillow and a good night's sleep!
