I read reviews before purchasing this pillow. The memory foam is not at all similar to the Tempurpedic pillow. The contour did not fit my head and the pillow was extremely firm for me. Trying to make it work, I cut it down to shape it and it still was too firm. I figured for the price what could I lose....sleep that is what I lost! I went back to using my old worn out pillow and will purchase another expensive one to replace it. I tried this one and it didn't work for me.
