These pillows and the fabric covers are very nice quality. They are a good height and weight for contour foam pillows. They are a little softer than the ones I have been using, but they seemed fine and my husband and I have both gotten used to them. They also return to their normal shape after you lie in one position and flatten them during sleep. Still, the next time we need to replace our pillows, I will probably be sure to return to the firmer foam. I do seem to notice that these distribute heat away from the body, so I stay a bit cooler at night. That's a real advantage for women of a certain age!
