I remember when I was a teen-ager, and I was shopping with my Mom when she bought latex pillows. The cost of the pillows came to $40+, I was shocked that she spent that kind of money on pillows! When I commented on that, she said, "well they're good pillows." The pillows felt like soft rocks to me, and made my neck sore. To make a long story longer, I have bought so many pillows over the years and they may be fine at first, but quickly become lumpy. When I saw the reviews on these pillows and realized they come in different density's, I decided to take a chance. They're awesome! They're soft so I can scrunch them and yet the latex gives them support. (I'm a side sleeper) You may prefer a more dense pillow, but I have a feeling if you give these a try, you won't regret it. Like my mom said, "well they're good pillows." Guess who knew best?
