I have tried multiple pillows and found this one to have the right amount of neck support. It is pretty soft but not too soft. I let it air out a couple of days before I used it and there was no odor. I already have the dreamform mattress topper that we LOVE! I recommend this pillow to everyone.
First off I'd like to mention that I am a side sleeper, as such I like to have some support but not so much that my neck is pushed up into a straining position. This pillow is perfect for a side sleeper! The top and middle keep your head in place while maintaining softness, and the bottom cradles your neck lightly while keeping it straight. I also don't have to bend my back into an odd position to keep the pillow from sliding out from under my neck. Because of the ventilation from the holes it stays cool, and I don't move my head even once during the night (except for snacking and bathroom breaks). And lastly because of the green tea I have no problems with allergies, so far I have sneezed 0 times while my head's been on this pillow. All that said, I doubt this would be a good pillow for back or stomach sleepers because of the shape and amount of support. Side sleepers buy this pillow now!
The inner foam was the color of green tea, but it didn't smell like green tea to me, or mint like another reviewer said. It is porous for air circulation and coolness, but the holes are rather big. The foam itself is coarse, and at one end the foam was uneven as if it was chopped off sloppily. It was already turning brown at the other end. I returned this pillow, and bought another kind of contour pillow from you, which works great.
Smells like mint chip ice cream ( I Like ) it is more foam like than true memory foam ( Works for me ) It took a few days to get use to than my husband stole it so,I took it back ! an bought him one. I love this pillow an have tried them all this one works for me and my skinny head !
I purchased this pillow for my son for Christmas. He has been using it and told me that it's great for side lying. He did say that it was too high for him lying on his back. He was in a car accident recently and hurt his neck, and I'm sure that this has something to do with his discomfort while on his back. Otherwise it is a great pillow for him.
I ordered this pillow because one I ordered from another site had a horrible smell that would not go away. After washing it, it molded....great uh? When I found this pillow I was a little leary because of the pervious bad experience but this pillow has no odor, is very comfortable and holds it shape extremely well. I plan to order one for my husband now.
I needed a cooler memory foam pillow. This pillow is a memory foam pillow that is cooler while it supports my neck. The price was more reasonable than other memory foam gel pillows. I am no longer waking up with my PJ's and neck soaked in sweat.
the gentle firmness of this pillow helps relieve neck pain; I have a comfortable night's sleep.

I previously bought the 3" memory foam topper from the same manufacturer, giving it an excellent rating. I expected the same quality and comfort from the pillow. When I first removed the pillow from the box, it had the same consistency as the topper and I was glad for that. The edges had a strange yellow discoloration on them which concerned me, but there was no odor so I figured it must be a manufacturing quirk. The head of my bed is against a window, which I've been keeping cracked open lately to let in the Spring air. I've noticed that this pillow, more so than the topper, is very sensitive to temperature. When I leave the window open, the pillow is almost too firm, whereas when the room stays in the 65-70 degree range, the pillow is just right for me, matching the consistency of the topper. This is just my experience and preference, but I thought I'd let others know. Overall, it's a decent buy and provides the support I need to avoid neck pain. I'm one of those bad boy rebels who prefers to turn the pillow around and have the larger bolster side under my neck. Wait, do bad boys even sleep on memory foam? Nevermind, I'm a princess.

I bought the memory foam topper and it came with two pillows. One pillow got eaten by a puppy...don't ask and the other one goes with me EVERYWHERE. I left it at my aunt's house by mistake so I am back to buy another one to keep at home and still have one to travel. Last night was miserable and I have a terrible pain in the neck...literally. I can't wait to get my pillow back!!! I will never let it leave my bedroom again!!!
