We bought this for my Husband, who has been experiencing GERD like symptoms. This pillow helped on the first night! It was not stiff like so may other wedge pillows tend to be & he is able to use it through the night, which was important to us. With other wedge pillows, we would start out on them & then end up back on our old pillow by morning. We have recommended this to his mother as well. Great purchase!
