First time I have tries a memory foam pillow. Last time I try a memory foam pillow. Tried this one because of firm review and 5 inch thickness. Center is 5 inches thick until you put any weight on it. Instantly compresses to about 2 inches thick. My head was in a little valley with the pillow higher on both sides. Memory foam is warmer than I expected. I had a thin, warm pillow wrapped around my head. Way too soft and thin for a side sleeper.
I've been looking for a good firm memory foam pillow for a while. When I came upon this pillow I was surprised to see that it came in a choice of firmness. So knowing that memory foam pillow seem to be too soft for me I order the firm pillow. NOT A GOOD CHOICE!!! Let's just say that this is FIRM! When opening the package I accedientially dropped the pillow on the floor, it made such a loud noise that it scared everyone in my house. It was like I was dropping bricks on the floor. I tried to sleep on it that night but it hurt my head so bad that it gave me a migraine. I thought well let's try it again not wanting to give up so easily. But the next time I slept on it I was in so much pain I couldn't take it. I figured the memory foam would start to "give in" a little over time or use but no luck at all. In fact I probably would be more comfortable sleeping on a brick.
