I recently went to a bed shop to test out a new bed. They had a brand name contour pillow on the bed I was testing and it felt wonderful! I decided to get one, but when I found out how expensive they were, I decided to opt for a more inexpensive brand. Wrong move! I bought two of these bodipedic pillows, one for my husband and one for me. Neither of us were impressed. First of all they had this really bad odor - like burning tires (very chemical). I put them outside for several days to air them out, but it didn't do any good. Second, even though they were purchased together and the same brand, one was smaller than the other and one was softer than the other. I felt they were very poorly constructed, out of poor materials. We didn't use these pillows more than two nights because they were just uncomfortable. I am a person who relies heavily on the average persons reviews before I purchase a product. This is my first review of a product that I've purchased. I hope it helps you decide. Sometimes the old adage, "You get what you pay for" is very accurate, especially in this case.
