I anxiously awaited the arrival of these pillows. There was a bit of delay but the wait was worth it. The picture shows a somewhat large pillow but in actuality the pillow is average sized. The material that is inside the pillow allows the pillow to have a soft feeling so that when you lay on it, it feels as though it is caressing your head. Your head does not just fall flat on it. It has allowed me to have a good night sleep. These pillows are worth it!!
