I'm primarily a side and side/front sleeper. I was searching for something that would give me fluffy softness against my face, but be sturdy enough to provide good support and not flatten down to nothing within months. After reading hundreds and hundreds of reviews (and becoming convinced that pillow taste is so subjective it's impossible to trust any online pillow review!) I was intrigued by the construction of these pillows. I went to BBB to test the only pillow I could find that had a similar construction... it felt pretty nice, but cost 4 times the price for just one pillow. Finally I decided to cross my fingers and give these a shot. I'm used to king size pillows, so these seemed puny when I took them from the box... I got used to the size quickly, but I must say I would definitely have liked this same pillow better if it had a king size option. It does have adequate support, although the memory foam doesn't feel nearly as obvious as it did in the super-expensive pillow. I've used the pillow for about a month now and it has seemed to change slightly; for the first week I found it best when I had it alone on the bed. Then it felt best with a second (older and fluffier) pillow underneath. It's still quite comfortable, and I feel as if I'm getting a lot better support when I'm on my side, but I am still unsure if it will prove to be durable. The only reason I bought these pillows was because I was sick of going to the store for new ones every 4 months... At least I have the second pillow from this set waiting in the closet for whenever this first one wears out!
