These pillows are very firm, and they're thick. In fact, when they're brand new, it took a while to get used to them. But after breaking them in, these pillows are great. Because of how firm they are, they're not for everyone. Only for side sleepers who likes really firm pillows.
I purchased these pillows after two neck surgeries and many sleepless nights. The stiff and painful neck on a daily basis needed some,any kind of relief. My doctor suggested to try these pillows for firm comfort under my neck. It did take a couple nights to break the pillow in but now I can't live without it. I gave my mom the second pillow and she too is resting comfortably. Thank you Overstock.com for having the product we needed at a great price.
I was hoping that these pillows would be somewhat firmer, and I have already noticed some variation in how dense they seem to be after only having them a month or so. That said, they are very comfortable for side sleepers like me and were a great deal. I would buy them again!
Well I had to wait at least a month before reviewing these pillows to ensue they didn't go flat and lose their support because I have been burned before and gave rave reviews on another brand only to be disappointed just a few weeks after using them. Yes these did cost a little more than the ones that went flat on me but then again a good nights sleep is priceless and that old saying is still true, >>>you get what you pay for. And the best thing is that my wife is still thanking me for them!
I have been using my new pillow for 3 weeks and it is comfortable and supports well in any position I sleep. I start the night on my side but change to both stomach and back during the night. I gave the second pillow to a friend who has severe arthritis. She is a side sleeper and has much difficulty getting comfortable. Since using this pillow she is able to sleep uninterrupted for 4 hours which is a record for her. I highly recommend these pillows.
Nice soft yet firm pillows. Takes a while to get used to them. I wish they were a little wider but perhaps the standard size for king pillow; I never bought this size before! I do not like the green sides; they can be seen through my white pillow covers.
