My husband only has one lung and some heart isues that require him to be on an incline to help his breathing (and he stopped snoring). He really loves this wedge as he doesn't roll off of it and can still use his pillow with it. He has had the best nights sleep in a LONG time! Thank you for a terrific product with an even better price.
I like to read and watch TV in bed. II need to have some elevation to do this comfortably. The wedge pillow on it's own is not high enough. However, because it is quite firm, I can pile regular bed pillows on top of it and make myself quite comfortable. It will stand alone, so when I'm ready to sleep, I just remove it and stand it along side the bed.
I would have given this the highest quality rating possible if it had a gel layer to keep you cool because during the night it retains heat even with pillows on top of it. But it came promptly and is surprisingly comfortable to sleep on despite the heat thing. Once again Overstock had the one with the best ratings, the best size, decent price and speedy delivery.
I tried to sleep on this but it is just too firm for me because I have back problems. It put me in a strange position and hurt my back more. I use it instead to prop me up using other pillows while watching TV. Though it is memory form there still isn't much give. The part of the wedge that ends in almost nothing is useless because the distance between the top and the end of the wedge isn't longer enough. It needs to hit below the lower back so that it doesn't cause back problems. Therefore there should be different lengths for different people. Of course if you don't have back problems maybe this product would work if you like things firm.
I sometimes experience acid reflux so I decided to buy this wedge pillow based on the positive reviews. It is not that comfortable. Actually, I couldn't even get sleep on it. Also, this pillow doesn't help acid reflux at all. I don't understand why all the positive reviews for this wedge pillow. Especially people who experiencing acid reflux, I want to ask them that are they really survive from the acid reflux with this pillow?
This is perfect for you legs. It can be pulled all the way into your bottom, resting and elevating your legs and it stays in place. When used to keep you propped up, you'll need pillows to support your upper back, head/neck but this wedge will keep everything right where you put it until you move it.
I suffer from sinus congestion and arthritis in my neck. Piles of pillows would shift at night and I would get little relief and intermittent sleep. This pillow made a dramatic difference for me! I use a shaped pillow with neck support on top of it. The angle of the wedge is just right. My sinus problems are greatly relieved and I wake up without neck pain. Am sleeping soundly and comfortably. This pillow is also good for reading. I wish I had purchased it years ago!
This is my 2nd wedge pillow.. the first one I purchased was at Bed, Bath & Beyond... it was cheaper but only ok as it was as firm. With Acid Reflex you need a firmer wedge pillow.. it's excellent and I highly recommend it for Acid Reflex or just to prop up to watch TV or read.
I have been using this wedge pillow for about 3 weeks. I'm very pleased with this product. I chose to purchase this wedge pillow based on the high rating it received on the reviews and the price. I have never tried a wedge pillow before. I thought I would try this one to see if it would alleviate reflux, sinus and neck and shoulder pain issues the previous reviewers wrote about. The taper of the pillow is great, allowing for a gradual incline of your upper body. The pillow holds its shape and offers comfortable, firm support. You do have to be sure you place your head at the top of the pillow where it is thickest for it to work best. I still use my regular pillow on top of the wedge pillow. My reflux and sinus issues have improved dramatically and I no longer wake up with sore shoulders, neck pain or headaches. I mainly sleep on my side and occasionally on my back. I find this pillow to be comfortable and functional in both sleeping positions. I strongly recommend it to anyone suffering from reflux, sinus or neck and shoulder pain from ordinary pillows. I don't intend to ever go back to flat pillows and will purchase this product again when this one wears out.
I use it, but it does not work like I had hoped it would. I slide down when I relax, and it puts pressure on my spine. I have been trying other methods of keeping my back flat above the hips. Using a memory foam pillow under my legs helps.
