I bought this for a friend who has acid reflux. She previously bought one from a catalog and as soon as I looked at it, I had her return it immediately. It had the eggshell memory foam that was so soft that it wouldn't even hold its shape. This one was perfect! Perfect size, not too soft or firm. She loves it!
I purchased this wedge pillow for my husband to help with his sleep apnea and snoring. We weren't sure that it would help him, but now he cannot sleep without it as it helps him to sleep more soundly. I have to admit as well that his snoring is much decreased since his head is more elevated. Comfort is a big factor for him and this is one of the most comfortable wedge pillows either of us have had. I've had another brand for years and it is nowhere as nice in firmness (not too soft and not too hard) and in comfort (this SplendoRest wedge tapers at the waist and "melts" into the bed so there is no discernable edge in the lower part of your back). The wedge came well packaged and on time as promised.
My husband was using 3 pillows to give him a little lift in the upper body when sleeping and it was an effort to keep them lined up. This replaced 2 of the pillows, stays in place and is firm enough to give him that lift without sagging. He's very satisfied with this wedge.
I've been using this pillow for more than 5 months now. This pillow does what I wanted - elevates the upper body and keeps its form. It took a little to get used to, but now I feel funny sleeping without it. Has helped with minor obstructive sleep apnea and snoring.
I have both sciatic and pelvic pain. Also neck and shoulder. I use this at night on the futon when watching TV. Then I take it to bed with me to elevate my legs. Sometimes I sit on it while crocheting on the floor. Wish it had a matching cover!
