I'm really picky when it comes to my pillow. My husband can sleep on most anything and get a good night's rest. Our pillows were to the "staying in the folded position" toss time. I did some research and liked what I read about these Sealy Extra Firm 300 Thread Count pillows. Excited to find a set of them on Overstock, I ordered them.
I wanted us to sleep on them a few weeks before leaving a review.
I'm very impressed and pleased! My husband likes his, too.
These are not extra firm in the sense of being hard and "bouncy". I can turn and move easily and comfortably; my neck isn't stiff and sore. As a side sleeper, I don't like my face buried in a pillow to where I can't breathe.
These pillows are a tad shorter than most standard pillows. That doesn't bother me, but you might want to know.
They are thicker than my other pillows. The thread count feels amazing. I can definitely tell the difference that thread count makes.
I have no reservations in recommending these pillows.
This is the best pillow I've ever had, and I've had many pillows over my lifetime.
I own the too expensive Tempurpedic Cloud pillow, but I like this one Much better, and I use this one instead.
One improvement I would make with the pillow, is that I would offer it in two different Heights.
This pillow comes in at about a 7 inch height. I think they should also offer an 8 1/2" height too for larger persons so that the shoulder width distance it properly taken up.
What I do with this pillow to make up the height I want, is underneath my bed sheet right where the pillow rests, I placed a 1 1/2" foam piece the same size of the pillow, and then put the sheet over it, and the pillow rests on top of that - this way it gives the right height/loft for me.
The Pillow itself is exceptional, and the way your head sinks into heaven so soft yet has just the just right 'springy push back' resistance, supports your head just right.
I think this pillow should be called the cloud pillow and not the tempurpedic one, because theirs softly sinks with heat/weight yes, but after a few minutes when its action is finished, you then are laying on firm dough, whereas this Latex pillow, stays cloud soft all night... ...it's awesome.
Review based on the pillows I received, however I did notice there appears to be different pillow densities even for the same model pillow (meaning some of the same model pillows are firmer or softer than others, and so I wish there was better factory consistency control on this density matter. Again though, if it were my company, I would offer in each of the three categories: soft, medium, firm.. ..I would offer two different height/lofts for each one.
Also I noticed the firm pillow in this offering, is just way too firm!!! ...in my opinion and experience.
I have purchased 4 pillows this year from other places and paid alot more. Then I gave them all away because I couldn't sleep on them. I decided to try one more time when I say this pillow on line, after all I was in the stores when I purchased the others and that didn't work out. When you take it out of the box it is vacuum sealed. Once you unseal the bag and take it out it begins to take shape so don't be alarmed. Instructions say it can take up to 72 hours to regain its shape. I slept on it the first night and it is the best pillow I've ever had. Nicely made and sleeps great. They warn you about a possible odor but I didn't experience any odor.
I bought 3 sets of these. All 3 sets came in great condition and have no complaints in how they fit or zip up. Make no noise or anything of the sort while fiddling around in the middle of the night with the pillows neither! Would definitely recommend!
I don't like to get too personal with my reviews, but things have been spiralling out of control in my life as of late. I had little hope, still less sleep. Enter the Sealy Posturepedic 300 Thread Count Temperature Regulating Hypoallergenic Down Alternative Pillow. What a slight change in quality of existence! For the better! Nice and soft, gently rocks my tortured mind to sleep before I fall into the dark abyss of my nightmares. If I'm going to wake with screaming night terrors, at least I am comforted by the Sealy Posturepedic 300 Thread Count Temperature Regulating Hypoallergenic Down Alternative Pillow upon waking knowledge of my dark situation. Five stars!
After seeing complaints of pillow density, I decided to follow the advice of another and order pillows a size larger than needed in order to have a fuller pillow. It worked perfectly; giving a plumper pillow than had I used the correct size. Upon arrival, I opened the box and noticed a slight odor. I promptly placed both pillows into our over-sized dryer on medium heat and left them to cycle for 20 minutes. They plumped up fully and the odor was no longer noticeable. No feathers or debri collected in the dryer vent. Future fluffs in the dryer will include a fabric sheet. They do have a "crunch" to them as they are 95% feather and only 5% down. Being that they were purchased for decor purposes and not a pillow to sleep on, the mix ratio is not a problem for us. I will be covering them with a thicker pillow cover before inserting them in our decorative pillow cases so that none of the hard feather tips poke through during fluffs.
I got these pillows because we needed something new for my husband, but I ended up taking them. These things are great and they never get warm, so there is no need to flip them for the cold side. They keep their shape very well!
I’m Very Happy with Both the Queen & King Protectors, thay I have purchased!! Nicely made & Roomy, so zi’m not sure about the other review stating: Too Small & a RipOff?. Did you contact their Customer service, before striking out such a negative Review about this Product?? I did & the service was Outstanding Problem solved, Completely! No; no offer of a Reward was given to me by this seller. I just Love purchase from Overstock; I can call & ask direct questions, before I buy!! Priceless! Gooooo Ooooooooo!!!
Just the thing for save our pillows. My husband has an oily head. His pillows get stained fast. This cover protects them. The first night he said the cover was crinkly, noisy, but after that it was great. I won't let him use a pillow without it ever again!!
