Do not purchase this pillow unless you want an extremely soft pillow. I bought it for my husband and knew immediately that this pillow would not work for somebody who loves a medium to firm pillow.

This body pillow is good but to me it needs more filling. Other reviews said it was too stuffed well I must have received the wrong pillow because mine goes flat. The filling is down alternative you can feel the difference in the softness just it needs more filling because it tend too get really flat & I have to bunch it up too get the support I need therefor making the pillow shorter in length. Some time has passed since receiving my pillow & I still have a STRONG chemical smell contained in the pillow. It was very STRONG in the beginning & in my opinion it should have left by now.
Bought for my teenage daughter as her old one died after many years. She likes this one but says it can get hot at night because she hugs it or sleeps with it propped up next to her. So far it's held its shape well and hasn't "settled" in spots like her old body pillow. I prefer alternative over down also.
I highly recommend this pillow with the caution that buy it if you like a marshmallow feel. I do, but sometimes I wish it was less cushy. I bought a cute pillowcase for it, a must-have, and I have to say I enjoy the pillow and find it useful. It is extremely light.
I was shopping for a body pillow at the recommendation of my chiropractor to maintain space between my knees and my arms during sleep. I failed to notice the word "soft" in the description. The repetition of the word "support" made me think this pillow was what I need. I was wrong. The polyester fill has amazing puffiness, but it squished down to a very thin surface and provided hardly any support to my knee and arm when on my side. I will have to return it. I spent over an hour on the Overstock website looking for another body pillow that was firm and failed to find anything. Disappointing!
I purchased this body pillow in February 2011, and it is still very soft, snuggly and comfortable. I purchased another one which arrived today. The price did go up about $10, and that is the only bummer. I am a side sleeper, so now I will have one on each side. Now I need to get a king size bed so I can fit my husband in, too :-)
My husband loves the pillow. It was a replacement for one he had very many years.

This does appear to be a very high quality product. However it is so filled that it is way too high and firm. It does feel pretty good when I lay my head on it as I am a side sleeper. But...I cannot comfortably throw my leg over it, it is way to high! I am thinking I will open it up and remove some of the filling. The price was fantastic as always!
If you are a person that gets too hot while you sleep, this pillow is not for you. If you can never get warm enough, this pillow will work wonders. Somehow it gives back the heat it traps and keeps me warm. I even turned down my heat (rare). I have used it sleeping on my side, back, and stomach. It molds to whatever I need. I love this pillow.
