Don't be put off by the fact that the pillows arrive in a bag and are only an inch or two thick! You MUST shake and fluff them and allow them to "sit" at room temperature to expand (seriously! the heat activates the memory foam)). Once we did this, they expanded to about 5-6 inches. Bought these for my teenage son who really liked similiar (and pricey!) Tempurpedic ones we saw in a bed store. These pillows are very nicely made, come already covered, fit standard (full-size) pillowcases and don't have that chemical "smell" like some memory foam products I've seen on the market. My son said it took him abouty 2 weeks to get used to them cause they are much firmer than his old pillows, but he loves them! They are heavy and a bit hard- not squishy; but your head and neck mold perfectly in them. Pillows keep your molded shape all night and then disappears by the end of the next day! I would definitely recommend them but they do take some getting used to.
This pillow is quite thick, the dimensions given are no joke. I opened the internal pillow, which is a casing of solid foam filled with shredded foam, and removed some of the shredded foam, to decrease the thickness. Now it works great for me. One thing to note, it took a week or so of leaving it standing out, before the chemical smell went down, but now it's fine.
Before i purchased this product (pilllow).. I tossed and turned all night.. Sometimes I would stay up all night and than fall asleep in the day time on my couch.. Since, I brought this pillow I sleep I actually sleep.. No more tossing and turning...I actually wake up in the morning and very energetic..Before I even had problems waking up...I love that it looks like a regular pillow and not like those big bulky ones...
These are not the pillows I thought I was getting, however, even though I or anyone else cannot sleep on them, I use them in my pillow shams. They work great with them. I would not reccomend buying these for sleeping. It seems as though any of the pillows that I have ordered from "O" are not for sleeping. I went back to my old memory foam pillow. However, not all things I buy from "O" is not good, I have bought some great things and very happy with them. Still happy with "O" products SMC from NW GA
