Our order came within 4 days and it was very close to Christmas to boot! The pillows were not vacuum sealed so they were already full size when they came out of the box. No waiting to test them out. They are firm, but soft enough to be conforming so your head is supported but you don't feel like you're sleeping on a board. We love our new pillows and have had a deeper, higher quality sleep since we started using them. By far the best Christmas present we received.
We just got a king bed and I am a side sleeper so I appreciate an extra firm pillow. This pillow is excellent in terms of support, loft and firmness, but it smells terrible. I took it out of the plastic bag it came in and aired it out in my room for three days, and my entire bedroom had that chemical smell to it from the pillows and then I finally started using it on the bed and with every move I made, the smell came out anew. I've had the pillow now for two weeks and the chemical smell is still very strong, so I wouldn't recommend these because I don't know when it will lose the smell, but I'm sticking with it for the comfort and hoping the smell will eventually fade.
These pillows have a strong chemical smell when unpacked. The printed material that comes with them says the smell will go away within 2 or 3 days. After 2 months the smell has slowly faded, but is still there. Also, these pillows are very firm and uncomfortable. Unless you prefer firm pillows, don't buy these.
It's kinda hard to rate this item as this was not what I received. I was sent the Sensorpedic memory foam pillow and although I like it, it would have been nice to actually get what I ordered. Anyway, mistakes happen and I have decided to keep the Sensorpedic pillow.
The chemical smell is terrible! The smell is similar to that of a damp, dirty, molding towel you found under a laundry pile. I followed there directions to allow 48 hours minimum before using. I left outside for 24 hours. I spritz Fabreze and tossed in my dryer on "Air" for several cycles. All to no avail. Need less to say, I do not use it! It can be found outside as a $40 dog pillow. What a terrible mistake. Why didn't you return it you ask? Have you read the conditions for return? Hah. I will never purchase a pillow ON-Line Ever!
These pillows really do fill my king size pillow cases. They are comfortable and we like them very much. The only negative is they smell bed but we assume this is a "new foam pillow" smell that will go away over time. I would definitely recommend these pillows.
Came very fast and the Cooling part of the Pillow works great. reviewed other foam pillows that were very Heavy, this pillow has good consistancy and very large but Not too heavy :-) got it as gift for wife, but she works sometimes nights, so i steal it when she's away! i may get one for myself next week!
We recently bought a new, top of the line mattress and bed frame for our aching backs then also decided to slurge with new pillows. I think I expected the pillow to be a little thicker than it is, but after a few nights of adjusting to it we cannot live without them. My only problem now is that our pillows keep dissapearing from my room...seems my children want them just as bad as we do.
