I have a memory pillow and I really like it, so I decided to buy more. These pillows, however, are very dense. I feel like when I rest my head on it, the foam doesn't sink in under my head like my other pillow. My head just feels like it's resting on top of firm yet squishy foam. When I press my palm into it, for example, the print goes away completely before I have a good chance to look at it. Another thing is that these pillows don't come with covers, which is fine because I can buy some, but I would have been willing to pay a few dollars more to have cases included. The pillows are generously sized, and mine weren't too compacted when they arrived. I also was not offended by the smell of these pillows. It is barely noticeable. For those looking for a dense foam pillow, you have found it. Unfortunately, that is not what I was looking for. I sleep with a flat feather pillow on top of this pillow.
