I've finally found the perfect pillow. This pillow has significantly improved the quality of sleep I get. I never smelled any chemical odor from the foam, and from the first night of using it I noticed a huge difference in the quality of sleep I was getting. I've had this pillow for a few months, and I just ordered four more for the rest of my family. No more tossing and turning and sore shoulders--this pillow has the perfect balance of give and firmness. I have the king size, and it's the perfect length. Do not hesitate--try this pillow!
