I almost hate to leave this negative feedback as I have been so happy with everything that I buy from Overstock. I already owned a 1/2 visco elastic 1/2 fiberfill pillow, and I have been happy with it for the last three years. So, I was really looking forward to the new pillows I purchased. These are a memory foam shell with pieces of memory foam inside. They do expand nicely after you open them up. And, they do give "a little" when you rest your head on them. BUT, do not be deceived, these are HARD. They do not eventually get softer or fluffy. My previous 1/2 memory foam pillow at least had some type of "give" to it. I must sleep elevated because of my deviated septum. I have given up on these and they are now being used to elevate my feet at night. You cannot return them because they are far to large and way to heavy to compress and send back in the orginial box, so I am stuck. This was not a great purchase for me. =((
Upon receiving pillows, they were flat, very flat. They roll them up, and you have to unroll them and let them fluff up. I let them fluff out for 72 hrs before using them, even then they still did not fluff as they should have. If you sleep on them, don't expect to revert to orginal shape. Bottom line, no memory in them and no comfort whats-so-ever. Positive side, at least my dogs are enjoying them! lol
The pillows looked flat and useless when they were first received and I almost sent them right back, but after you let it expand for a while & then sleep on it once, they puff up to full size. With that said, they're not completely memory foam. It feels like there's chunks of memory foam inside with an outer layer of normal foam (so don't shake the pillows around before you sleep on them once or all the foam will slide to one side of the pillow and will be uneven after it expands).I like firm pillows and these are very firm when you first put your head on them, but after a few seconds, they'll "melt" away and form to your head and neck. I also hate when pillows get really hot (I'm a pillow flipper that's always looking for the "cooler" side of the pillow), and these are great because they absorb the heat and get it away from your face.Overall, great pillows for the price, and I'm getting 2 more today!
This pillow is not that comfortable. I find myself at least twice a night fluffing it back into shape. If you like flat pillows, this one is for you. I continue to suffer with neck and back pain, so I am going back to the feather ones.
I ordered two of these pillow because I wanted my best friend to have one for her work a a massage therapist. The pillow makes it more comfortable for women to lay on the stomach on the hard table. She was so in love with the pillow she took it home for herself and ask me to order her two more, one for her office and one for her husband. This pillow is soooo comfortable, I sleep like a the dead.
Good quality, easy shopping on-line, and a great price! What else could you ask for?
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? N/A
- How is the quality of the product? Excellent quality
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? It was right on target
I've tried several different memory foam pillows and nothing has been all that impressive. Even brand-name pillows did not provide any comfortable sleep angles. This was the first memory foam pillow to actually be COMFORTABLE. I was really impressed, and I'm glad I didn't give up on the memory foam pillows because this has absolutely improved my quality of sleep.
I received the pillow in fine condition. I assumed, as with many other memory foam pillows, the filler material would be one solid piece of foam. This particular pillow seems to be filled with odd shaped chunks of memory foam. It is also stuffed to the brim and is very tall, creating a somewhat uncomfortable angle for my neck. I plan on investigating/removing some of the filler material to bring the fluff down to a more comfortable level.
I wanted these pillows because we are so happy with the memory foam mattress topper. When we got the pillows, we opend them, follwed the directions and left them out for 48 hrs. These pillows are like sleeping on a rock or board. They have no give to them at all. Sadly, I am stuck with them. The only positive is that when my husband puts a soft pillow on top he doesn't snore!
Having already had one memory foam pillow for several years, I decided to get a couple more. After checking the local warehouse club, I searched online and found these larger (queen-size) pillows for 25% less. Although they took much longer to arrive than expected, I am very happy with them.
these pillow are not comfortable and we would like to return, we have tried them for 2-wks, they are too hard and did not soften up please send an RA # and issue a pick-up. Let me know when and what company will do pick-up. Ted B xxxxxx
The pillow arrived very tightly packed and I was a bit skeptical. I saw that the packaging had a sticker that mentioned to fluff the pillow when I opened it. I did just that and within a few hours, it fully expanded. I slept on it the same night! I really like it and it's way better than my old, polyester pillows. It seemed a bit firm at first, but once you lay your head on it, it's great!
