I am not prone to write product reviews but can't help myself on this one. I have been on something of a personal quest for the perfect pillow for many years. I sleep part on my back and part on my side so it's really hard to find a pillow that works well for either position.Having tried all kinds--shapes, sizes, materials (even two different buckwheat hull pillows), I bought this because I've never seen anything quite like it. I like my other buckwheat hull pillows enough but they are hard (make my ears sore) and they make a lot more noise than you might think, especially for side sleeping.Well, this pillow is amazing. It's quiet and soft, for one thing. But even more important, you can get just the right amount of support exactly where you want it--it's easy to slosh the hulls around the pillow--but once you get it right, they stay in place. It's like the direct down pressure just locks them in place and they don't move much, once you get the elevation and shape just how you want it. So the pillow CONFORMS to ME instead of expecting me to conform to the pillow. I've never been able to do that with a pillow.But the best part--that side panel works double wonders. When I am on my side it fills the whole space in the neck-shoulder-head area--very cozy. But on my back I just shake down the hulls and create a little nest for the very back of my skull--and that side panel forms the most amazing cervical support pillow I've ever used. Wow.I highly recommend this pillow for anybody who has been on the search for best pillow--
Wow! Now before you walk away thinking this is some kind of gimmicky pillow, please know that I've been fighting with pillows for a very long time. I've got allergies, a bad neck and back. I absolutely love these pillows (purchased 2 from Overstock.com). You don't even have to fill the casing completely with the hulls. I used about 1/2 of the bag. Somehow these things just snuggle around your head and give your neck the support it needs. If you want a soft, non-supportive pillow, keep going. But if you need a firm, supportive pillow--this is your new pillow. As an added bonus for me, I love the rustling sound of the hulls...it's just a pleasant sound. In the last 6 weeks, I've completed revamped my bedding thru this website, and I have nothing but great reviews for everything!
I've only had my new, sweet buckwheat pillow for a few days now, but I already know I made a great choice! I LOVE this pillow!!!! I really wasn't sure whether I should replace my old pillow, but the quilted cover and box shape of this one combine to make itso much better than my old buckwheat. It isn't even close. I sleep so great now! Being a side-sleeper, I really appreciated the enormous amount of buckwheat provided - in spite of filling my pillow completely as full as I need, I still have about 1/3 my bag left, so as they settle I will keep it topped off, perfectly full, comfortable and wonderful. I can't believe they haven't thought of this before. This is an AWESOME pillow! If you have ever tried buckwheat in the past, or you sleep on it now, or even if you haven't, you simply owe it to yourself to give this one a try. It is the best pillow I've ever had, and it will be the last pillow I ever buy. Thanks Overstock! You guys rock!

After 20 years, I threw away my old buckwheat hull pillow and bought this Premium Buckwheat Hull Pillow. What a difference...it's quieter (quilted cover muffles the "crunch") and wa-a-ay more comfortable. It came with explicit instructions on how much of the buckwheat to put into the quilted case, depending on whether you're a back, side, stomach, or a combination sleeper. I used about two-thirds of the hulls and have the rest stored for future use. Great pillow, excellent instructions, and worth the money. And, as always, outstanding service from Overstock.
Okay, this pillow isn't as large as it should be. It's larger than a normal travel pillow, smaller than a regular/standard pillow; but it does keep your head cool and your neck supported.
I use it with a regular pillow (one of my favorite, but flat pillows) to help muffle the crunching; but once I'm asleep - it's quiet and good! I find I don't toss and turn as much as with normal pillows.
I was afraid the buckwheat hulls would be noisy but they relatively make little sound. I packed the pillow with the suggested amount of buckwheat hulls and found that it is firm but comfortable to use. It keeps its shape, however I arrange it, which I like very much. My head or shoulders do not sink down unless I move the hulls to accommodate a new position. I am waiting to see if the hulls settle a bit before removing some in the event the pillow remains too firm. What I do like is that I can decide how full to fill the provided case. I probably used about 3/4 of a bag of hulls which provides me with good support whether I am sleeping on my side or front. ( would be great for the back sleeper too, I am sure)!
I must own 50 pillows. Very hard to find a pillow I can use without neck pain. I have owned buckwheat pillows before & am glad to have one again. Can be shaped as needed to find comfort & stays cool all night!
For the first time in my life, I had to look into getting a better pillow following a stiff back in my neck, which left me sleepless for a few days. I did some research, and buckwheat pillow seemed to be a good solution. I am a side sleeper, and for me this pillow is perfect: once in place, it does not move, and keeps my head and neck supported.
If my case becomes ruined but the buckwheat is still fine, is there a method to purchase an additional case without the buckwheat?pauxfossum on Jun 20, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
