I love this concept, as I've been looking for years for a low pillow with a hope in the middle where my ear can rest while side sleeping. This pillow is the perfect height but is too hard. It gives me a headache. If it were foam, it might work better for me. Also, why do I need two pillows? This purchase only comes as a pair. Also, it would be nice to have a washable pillow case included for such an odd sized pillow.
