I was looking for a body pillow and decided to try this one, a big disappointment. I am 5'1" and pillow feels more like a king size pillow instead of a full body pillow, that could be my fault for not reading and measuring specifications. Once pillow reaches its length it becomes very heavy, almost impossible to manipulate with one arm, I have a big bruise in my thump while moving in bed I grabbed pillow in the wrong way... Fabric material is very cheap, already became apart from zipper on my second day of trying it out. I would return it if I could but I dont want to pay for an oversize and heavy item at post office and waste more money on this junk. Bottom line: 1)Too short, 2)Too heavy. 3)Cheap fabric, 4)Comfort level mediocre.
I own lots of pillow and have try almost anything. First of all, I have to say this is so much a better pillow than the serta and bodipedic that they sell here in overstock as well. It is definately not a soft pillow but i think its a good support for the neck though. But it is not like a rock as mention by some reviews. I like it and I am enjoying it.
Am about 5'5" and this 36" pillow is the perfect size for me. The memory foam isn't just dense foam but the real deal. Do need to let it puff out for a few days and like new memory foam mattresses there is a bit of a smell at first but it dissapates quickly. It does include a cotton zip cover which is washable.
Love this pillow. I waited awhile before posting my review because I wanted to see if the body pillow would last. Prior to purchasing this pillow, I purchased a body pillow from a local retailer. Within months of purchase the other pillow, the pillow lost it's shape. This pillow has mainted it's shape after much use. Even recommended this pillow to a friend, who also purchased it. I am going to have surgery soon and will be purchasing another pillow (longer one).
I have searched for this pillow for some time now. I've tried many and they just didn't work for me. This memory foam pillow is soft but firm and can be moulded to your exact needs. I also use it during the day to support my back while sitting in a recliner. Comfy.
This does feel like a high density foam, but there are issues. 1 - the foam is clumps of foam. Why? No idea, but it makes for a slightly bumpy surface and will require refluffing daily. I have no clue why they didn't just use a solid piece of foam instead. 2 - the length is a bit small. This makes it more likely to move around on you, so keep that in mind. 3 - the cover attracts lint like crazy and is on the cheap side. Would I recommend it? Actually, yes, because it is pretty good for what it does and is very solid (great for under your knees).
Arrived promptly, item was packed well and was VERY flat when initially taken out of the package. Left it for a few days sit to re-expand. Once it finished expanding, it was quite a bit thicker than anticipated (which was fine with me). Pillow is not a single piece of foam but seems to be made with foam pieces which actually makes it so that you can re-adjust the configuration of the pillow if one area gets flattened. This is the firmest density pillow I have found in many, many years. Although it was meant to be a body pillow, I use if as a regular sleeping pillow because of the high firmness level. I looked for many years for a very high firmness sleeping pillow and have never found one I was satisfied with-so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was just what I had been looking for. For use as a body pillow- it didn't work so well for me. It expanded SO much that it was higher/thicker than was comfortable for me. Overall impression- excellent value for the price.
My feather body pillow went flat and I was experiencing severe pain across my back which had radiated from my neck. I was anxious to get a good pillow and ordered this. The first disappointment was that when it arrived it was compressed into a flat coil. The packaging had a notation that I should allow 48 hours for the pillow to 'recover' from the compression. After 48 hours this pillow took a tubular shape and was as hard as a rock. This, of course, made my neck pain more severe since it forced my neck muscles to stretch even more. I have had to put this pillow aside and use a different pillow in the hope that at some point my pain will improve enough to use this item I purchased to alleviate my pain. Don't order this if you're looking for a more comfortable sleep experience. I feel I have wasted about ***.
