I have been on a search for years , looking for the perfect pillow. One that wasnt too soft or too hard, too high or too flat. This search has been made more difficult by my current use of a cpap machine and the need to find a pillow that doesnt interfere with my cpap mask. I have bought 3 other cpap pillows in the last year and despite the fact that they were all very expensive, nothing really gave me a good nights sleep. But at long last, I have found the answer. This buckwheat hull pillow not only adjusts to the right height for my neck and allows room for my cpap mask but I no longer wake up with a painful pins and needle arm from sleeping on it under my pillow trying to find a comfortable way to sleep. Im never giving this pillow up!

I needed something to go from my ankle to my neck, so it's either a bit too long, or a lot too short. The lady in the photo must be about 4' tall. The wrap-around concept is a great idea (these body pillows are a pain when you turn from side to side), but if you need anything lower than maybe belly support, it's not going to work on both sides without turning (and then the bit flopping around behind your head is even more trouble than the standard 4-5 foot body pillow). Still, my arthritic knees and ankles are grateful. I'd also like it a little bigger around....it's narrower than standard body pillows. I still end up with my hand on the mattress and my wrist bent back....pins and needles in the morning! The last thing is the polyfill. Bend it a few times in the same spot and you're left with a dead spot. It doesn't really mush back together very well. Aside from the length, which really is an advantage in spite of the too-short-or-too-long issue mentioned before, the other thing I really like is the light weight. It's got feather or down body pillows beat, hands down. All in all, a pretty good buy. Really the only one I've seen that has that extra length....a definite double-plus!

I am a long time +8yrs CPAP user and I also sleep on my stomach rather than on my back or side. I use a Full Face mask as well which means that I have to sleep with the mask hanging over the edge of the pillow with the rest of my head supported by the pillow. I have been using the older version of this pillow for some time and I liked it. Giving this newer bigger pillow a try out. The package arrived with a pillow casing with a quilted cover with a zipper on one side, the long side instead of the end like the other model, a mixed back of Buckwheat Hulls and foam pieces and an instruction sheet. The instructions suggested filling the pillow with between 1/4 to 3/4. I decided to fill it up about 3/4's full. I used a plastic Solo cup to move the contents from the bag to the pillow. It is very light, but unlike shipping peanuts, not really sticking to things. So it was fairly easy to move, though each cup full felt like I was moving air. After filling it up to where I wanted it, I zipped it close and then just to make sure it stayed zipped, I used a safety pin through the hole in the zipper to the pillow so it won't open on its own. I also put the pillow into a pillow case. Somethings about the pillow: NOISE, Not really an issue. The mixture of Buckwheat Hulls with pieces of foam in it keeps the it from making much noise while it is moving around. However, once you have molded to the shape you want and start to sleep on it, it really doesn't move much and if you are using Cpap would pretty much prevent you from hearing anything. SMELL, I didn't notice any real smell from the pillow or the contents. HEAT, I live in a fairly hot area (Phoenix Metro area) and as like with the previous version of the pillow, it doesn't really heat up and stays fairly cool. SLEEPING WITH THE PILLOW. Basically, I treated it like I did with my original pillow, lying on my stomach, I just circled it with my arms and molded it into a little mound where I could put my head facing on either side with the mask overhanging the pillow. This allowed me to sleep without getting mask leaks and be able to shift my head from one side to the other without really having to keep molding it over and over. The pillow once molded into the blob that I wanted pretty much stayed there and provided a good solid but no hard sleeping surface. I have now used it for around 3 nights and a couple daily naps with GREAT SUCCESS and WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PILLOW TO ANYONE WHO USES CPAP.
You never realize how many muscles it takes to turn your head until you have a stiff neck, and the wrong pillow can leave your neck stiff for days. A good pillow, however, provides the neck and back support you need, and this depends on how you sleep and what you're looking for in a pillow. Compare the qualities of down pillows and memory foam pillows to see which will provide you with the comfort level you need. Pillow Qualities to Consider Softness: Down-filled pillows are known for their luxurious softness. Sleeping on a down-filled pillow is often compared to "sleeping on a cloud. Read More
