I was looking for something that would provide good support to my neck--trying to reduce neck pain when I wake up in the mornings... I am primarily a back sleeper, but sometimes sleep on my side. This pillow seems to support my neck okay, and my neck pain has been reduced over the past month of using it--takes a bit of time to get comfortable to fall to sleep sometimes though. I bought this pillow hoping it would have enough "fluff" to feel soft, but provide enough support with the latex core--it tends to get flat fairly quick, similar to regular down pillows, but it fluffs back up okay--maybe wish it was a little fuller/ had a bit more down--overall, not bad, but not the "perfect" pillow for me. Great price, quick delivery, and good customer service from overstock!
I had high hopes for this pillow and it is nicely made and a beautiful pillow, but I actually wake up feeling more sore than before! One reviewer said the pillow was a mix of latex pieces with the feathers but that is not how I received it. There is a thin layer of latex (made in China) and a layer of duck feathers, only 5% down. When I rest my head on it, the pillow sinks and becomes hard with very little support. Unfortunately I have to return it and will try another latex pillow.
I was expecting something with a latex core, but it seems as though it's a shredded latex mixed in with the feather. If you like feather pillows but are not into fluffing, these are for you. Sooo comfortable, I only wish they made a matress topper with this mix!
