I am new to latex pillows and bought two of these, two Premium Natural Latex Foam Pillows, and two Natura Ideal Talalay Latex foam pillows. The softest were the Premium Natural Latex Foam Pillows, and the firmest were these pillows. The packaging notes that the Eco Natural pillows are also made of talalay latex, even though the description does not say so. I like them all, and have them stacked on my bed in different shams and pillowcases to prop me up for reading, as well as for sleeping. I am very impressed with the quality of these pillows, and wish they came in 18" and 20" square pillows as inserts for occasional pillows elsewhere in the house. I have a pinched nerve and often find it hard to get comfortable, but these help tremendously. I am a side and back sleeper, and these pillows provide good support but are soft and welcoming when I lay my head down. They do not crush like down or feather pillows that you have to keep fluffing, and they are not warm and like solid cement like memory foam. They have a high quality off-white quilted cotton zip cover that comes off for washing. I highly recommend them.
I have been using a water pillow for about 10 years now. They have served me well, but when my latest one sprung a leak I decided to look at alternatives. I had a latex pillow when I was a young boy, but that was long ago, and I wasn't certain it it would be the right solution for me now. I looked at down alternatives (I am allergic to down) as well as granulated latex, and pillows made of wool batting as well as pillows filled with wool "pearls." I decided that a solid latex core would probably work best for me, and boy does it. I am a side sleeper, and sometimes I have neck issues. This pillow is soft and springy, and at first I was concerned that it was too soft to provide proper support for my neck. It has not been a problem at all. Latex is naturally resilient, so when I first lay my head on the pillow it descends into a cloud of softness, that then subtly rebounds until my head has just the right level of support to keep my neck in line with my body - it's almost like magic. Combined with the 100% latex mattress I purchased recently, I am now sleeping better than ever, and waking up in the morning without aches and pains. If you are worried about a latex pillow sleeping hot, this one does not. The cotton cover is quilted with wool batting, this gives it a nice surface feel beneath the pillowcase, and it hasn't felt any hotter than your run of the mill fiber-fill pillow. I highly recommend this pillow.
These natural latex pillows are absolutely great. High quality and don't break down or lose their body like memory foam or other pillows. Great body that supports your head where your head doesn't sink or fall into the pillow but are also soft. Just try to make sure if the height of the pillow is right for you. Latex pillows are the best pillows I ever used and I tried ALOT of pillows, also much better for me than $*** plus dollar down pillows. Are also much softer than memory foam but more supportive. Love latex pillows!
I had great hopes when I ordered this pillow. Unfortunately the loft is too high. The description said medium to soft. Well it is very firm and feels like laying my head on a sack of concrete. It does have some give when you push your hand on it. Perhaps it is best for a man. I was hoping for something cushier. The cotton cover is not removable so that might be an issue down the line. Well constructed, but not for me. I guess someone else in my household will inherit this very expensive pillow. It definitely is hypoallergenic.
