I read some of the bad reviews posted here about this pillow. You DO have to use it properly, and infact my husband gets it turned around and the walls are shaking again.....BUT this has been a true miracle from the first night he used it. It is a little firm - but that's probably one reason it works so well - and it takes getting used to. If you are looking for a soft squishy pillow - this ain't the one for you, but if you are looking to cure a loud snoring problem....this IS your pillow!!! My adult daughter spent three nights with me this week while my husband was gone on business....she can wake the neighbors with her snoring.....she slept in my bed with me and used the snore pillow....not a peep!!! That was a miracle. She also said that for once she didn't feel 'ragged out' in the morning. It is not THE most comfortable pillow ever, but the crazy thing has done what it says for us. NOTE: BE SURE YOU PAY ATTENTION TO THE PILLOW....THE HALF MOON SHAPE GOES UNDER YOUR NECK....OR IT DOESN'T WORK. I highly recommend this.....WEEEEELLLLLLL worth the money after trying a ton of other options with no luck at all :) :) Buy it!
My husband could wake the dead with his snoring. I was having to sleep with our two-year-old in her room just so I could get SOME sleep at night., even though I could hear him sawing logs through the wall! I mean, D-I-V-O-R-C-E kept playing in my head. The first night he used this pillow, he did not snore - not once! After about a week or so, he started to snore again. I sat up and looked over at him asleep and his head was off the pillow. He said the pillow felt a little "different" at first, so that's why I rated the comfort level at 4 instead of 5. This pillow would have been worth the money even if he had not snored just for one night - a girl has got to get her sleep. I read the other reviews before I bought this pillow, and I almost didn't buy it because of those comments, but I'm thankful I gave it a try. I just hope it works as well for other snorers. Just as a side note, my husband sleeps on his side, his back and his stomach and he didn't snore in any position. I have no idea how it worked, but for him, it did. Good luck! And sweet dreams!
Cindirella60 post was right on! You must have your head adjusted correctly to the pillow in order to get it to work. When used correctly the pillow causes your head to tip forward, thus making it almost impossible for your mouth to open and snore. You than breath through your nose. I sleep much deeper than before and no longer are sleepy in the daytime. The pillow needs to have user instructions, because I used it incorrectly for several nights. It helped me and is worth the money!
I have been looking for a pillow with the cut for my shoulder for years. I destroy pillows routinely as I bunch them under my neck to make room for my shoulder and they fall apart. I don't like down so this is a good answer. It is a little flatter than I was used to using howevver, it is working out great. Since I don't stay awake to see if snore I can't tell you if it helped there. I am sleeping better and that is enough. Hope I can get another soon as they are not on the site at the moment.
I had read the other reviews before having my husband try out this pillow and read that it was a 50/50 shot if it worked. That is exactly how it worked as well. While it did not eliminate my husband's snoring, it did reduce it. My husband did comment though that it was not comfortable.
I don't know if it stops my snoring but I certainly sleep better with it. This pillow allows greater freedom to breath without the pushing and thumping as you must do with a regular pillow. It appears small but it is just right. Your face is free and clear, your shoulder is comfy (no pressure), your head and neck just feel good. I absolutely recommend this product.
This is amazing. My husband was snoring so badly that he was sleeping in another room. The pillow arrived and he used it that night. For the first time in years, he didn't snore at all. I love it, thank you whoever created this, you've saved our sanity and I'm grateful to the point of tears!
This is a nice looking pillow, but it didn't really do the trick. My husband said it cut down on my snoring (yes, I confess--I'm the one who snores!) but no miracle. There were also a lot of disclaimers on the bag it came in that I wish had been included on the Overstock ad (i.e., cant guarantee elimination of snoring caused by a a long list of reasons). But, as I said, it does cut down on the log sawing so I'm keeping it.
According to my wife, if anything, this pillow increased my snoring. More likely, it had no effect at all. Actually, once I saw the product, I didn't think it would do any good. It's a small, semi-hard foam rubber pillow with a slight ridge in it. Even if somehow my head were locked in place on the pillow, I didn't see any reason to expect it to work . There were all kinds of disclaimers on the package about reasons it might not work and that further lowered my expectations. A total waste of money. You can buy a better quality pillow for $5 that will have the same effect on your snoring - NONE.
I recently bought the pillow for my husband after being up all night and seriously concidering separet bedrooms so I could get some sleep. To my absolute suprise it really works. He still occasionally snores but if he does it is not nearly as loud and I am able to sleep through it. I really wasn't sure he would use it but he says it comfortable and now we both get a good nights sleep.
I bought this product for my husband who is a heavy snorer. He found product to be uncomfortable and for me, I am still losing sleep. I would not recommend this product. Perhaps the more expensive version would prove to be more effective. I am very disappointed.
In a nutshell, my wife has gotten tired of my snoring. While the reviews on this pillow downplayed it's effectiveness (some claimed it failed to work at all), I decided to give it a shot anyway, and am really pleased. Well, I should say my wife is really pleased. It hasn't stopped my snoring, but has cut the volume way down. It did take some getting used to, as the contour is better suited to sleeping on your back than on your side, and it is quite firm. After a couple of nights though, I was used to it, and we have been able to sleep. Well worth the price.
I would suppose if this were made of out some sort of memory foam this might not be so bad. Sadly, this is very light weight foam. So light that when I threw it from my bed to the dresser it floated through the air. When attempting to sleep on it flat on your back, it slides out from under you, and keeps running away. As far as side sleeping it's okay. You can buy a better quality pillow for $*.**. This did not reduce my snoring.
The pillow is incredibly hard. It doesn't give much, and hasn't helped anyone's snoring. It is well made though. And it doesn't get too hot. If I put a down pillow on top of it to contour to my neck and shoulders it is very useful for reading in bed.
