The perfect pillow for me anyway! Not too firm--not too soft--not too thick--not too thin--just PERFECT for me anyway. I'm short and have a short neck that has a lot of arthritis in it. I also had fusion surgery done on it four years ago---so I'm very picky about what I sleep on. I slept on a Swiss Lux pillow for five years, and decided it was time to try something different. I tried a couple other brands before I settled on the Italian 6-inch memory foam one. Just love it! Well made. It would be nice been nice if it came with its own storage case.
These pillows are great! I have had such a problem with sleeping comfortably and these pillows are the answer! I shopped around and having trouble sleeping or not I couldn't bring myself to pay $100 plus for a single pillow! I was thrilled to find the same quality and same brand pillow I had shopped for, for a fraction of the cost! These pillows are a great investment! I recommend them! They keep your head cool, they do not have any odder ( read some reviews of pillows that do). I'm really happy I found quality pillows that I could afford! They really make a difference for a comfortable nights sleep!
I have been buying pillows for quite some time but could not find one that gave me a comfortable night's sleep. However, this one did the trick! I love it! My daughter had purchased one already and she recommended it to me, knowing that I have neck problems. It works great for me.
I had ordered the exact same pillow a year ago, and it was great! I ordered one last week as a gift for my husband, and when it arrived it was not the same density or thickness. It was way too soft, and even though the cover and look of the pillow was identical to the one I already owned, it was almost flat in comparison. I am also irritated that I have to pay over $$$ to return it. It kind of made me feel hesitant to order from overstock.com again.
I thought I was getting this nice thick pillow with lots of support....I just received it and its like a piece of fluff no support to speak of. Barely weights in at 3 pounds. I read all the reviews and this one looked good. Really feel like I got ripped off since this is my first time buying on-line through Overstock.com. I have one more item coming in....Hope its better than this! Can't believe I paid $$$ dollars for this!
I LOVE this pillow. I've had a memory foam pillow for several years now and always raved about how fantastic it is. Mine is shaped like a traditional pillow, such as this one. My hubby had pillow jealousy and so I started shopping around for one like mine. It wasn't that expensive when I bought it and I was stunned when I couldn't find it again. Especially since most of the pillows I found were more than one hundred dollars (that's at least three times as much as what I paid for my old pillow). And then I found this pillow. It was still more than I paid before, but after one failed try with a very hard and stiff memory foam pillow, I thought I'd take a chance. Now, I totally want to steal my husband's pillow. It is PERFECT. It's soft, but not like a feather pillow. Plus it's long; it gives him enough room to roll around to his side, on his back and on his other side. It isn't too long because it still fits into a regular sized pillowcase. He also slept better last night (his first with it) than he has in weeks. In fact, he said that he chose to sleep in just to have more pillow time. Don't be surprised if I'm sleeping with it tonight! (OK, so I'm actually going to order a second pillow and save my old (but still fantastic pillow) for visiting friends and family.)
I purchased this same pillow 6 months ago for myself and loved it. Bought another one for my wife for christmas and it is a lot softer than mine. There is no support at all !! I called and complained they said different density is common and nothing they would do because she opened the package. What a rip off. Do not waste your money. 1/4/12
I bought it to replace a memory foam pillow that is about 10 years old...This pillow is NOT firm. It does not support my neck/head. It becomes flat and uncomfortable in minutes..my OLD pillow is better! I did like the size of the Italian pillow. This is my first purchase from Overstock that wasn't BETTER than I expected.
I have been looking for a replacement of my old memory foam pillows for some time now and was shocked by the prices on line and in the stores. However now I have changed my mind and the pillows I ordered were even more that I expected and so well worth the extra price. Comfortable & firm...If I could give ten stars I would!

I love these pillows. We've tried several brands of memory foam pillows and this one by far is the most comfortable. It doesn't need fluffing at all like the others do. Also, there was NO SMELL associated with these pillows when I opened them up. I would highly recommend these to anyone who has neck and back problems like myself. I suffer from severe degenerative arthritis in my neck and back and this pillow gives me enough support so I do not wake up with a sore neck or stiff shoulders in the morning. Comfortable enough for the back or side sleeper.

At first this pillow felt great: firm and sturdy, just the way I like it. Then I started to wake up with excruciating pain to the point where I needed to get prescription strength pain killers. This pillow does not cooperate with the body and actually felt like it attacked my neck and back. The Tempur-Pedic neck pillow is a great alternative. I'm even motivate to say that this pillow is the maliciously uncomfortable.

I have been through 5 pillows in the last 2 months. I started having neck and shoulder pain due to my current pillow at the time being too stiff. I finally went onto overstock and saw all the reviews for this pillow so I thought I would give it a try. Well the first night was not a match, I didn't have a sound night sleep and the pillow seemed like it was going to be too stiff. READERS: GIVE THIS PILLOW A WEEK BEFORE YOU RETURN IT. Within a couple of days, it was like WONDERFUL. My head is perfectly supported and I am waking up in great shape!
I am EXTREMELY fussy about my pillows. And I have arthritis in my spine. This pillow is amazing! Very comfortable! I would consider it my best pillow yet (and I have spent hundreds on pillows!), but it's queen size, and all my linens are standard. But no big deal! I found no odor problem at all. The cover is luxurious. The foam is PERFECT! You won't regret buying this pillow.
Love these pillows. We tried the bamboo pillows out to relieve some conditions brought about by the lovely elder years (bone spurs of the neck). The response has been significant. In less than one month of using this form fitting pillow, my other half has felt better and slept more soundly than the previous few years--translation--less snoring!!. Yee-haw! Add to that , the pillow is well made and sturdy. We went back to purchase another and at the time, Overstock had the best deal for these hidden gems..
