I have neck issues as well as GERD, so my doctor recommended a wedge pillow. I had high expectations for this pillow, however, there were problems that I couldn't "sleep" with. First, the wedge pillow is much too tall which creates its own set of problems...I slid down during the night making my neck arch more than it had before...ergo more neck pain. This pillow should be HALF the size. It is great for reading but not for sleeping. And the smell....I aired it outside for days, and couldn't get rid of the odor. I don't know if I can return this because I tried it, but if I could, I would!!
This is NOT a 4lb density foam pillow and falsely represented..
It has the density/consistency of a jumbo marsmallow at best. There is absolutely no support whatsoever. I have a 4 lb density foam mattress topper to use as comparison, and this doesn't even come close. No exaggeration when I say it has ZERO support. I would compare the support to laying on cotton balls. A rolled up bath towel or bubble wrap would provide more support and cost much less.
I'm 5'2" and recovering from spinal fusion. If I attempted to use this for spinal support, I would probably have to go in for another surgery due to the damage caused by this so-called lumbar pillow. It has no height to it whatsoever. NONE! NADA. Flat as a pancake, no, a piece of paper. I laid on it unopened (in the plastic it is wrapped in when delivered) and it compressed completely flat to where I could feel the hard floor beneath it. No joke. I then folded it in half to see if that would provide the slightest amount of height...
Bought these recently and like them very much. They do seem to cool you when your hot and warm you when it is cold. They are very comfortable and stay where you put them. I would buy these again in the future.
