II have really enjoyed sleeping on this pillow! I was sent this pillow as a product test from the manufacturer. When it arrived, I was concerned that it would be too firm, but it forms so nicely around your neck and head that it is amazingly comfortable. I've had quite a bit of shoulder pain when I sleep and unexpectedly this pillow relieved much of that. I love the support it gives. I did not notice an off odor with my pillow and after opening I just let it sit a few hours on my bed before using. It fluffed up nicely before bedtime. Great product would definitely recommend! Updating! I've continued to use this pillow every night! It looks just like it did when I got it. The loft is still the same - it hasn't squished flat like many regular pillows have for me in the past. I thought you might like to see a few fun comparison pictures for the loft and "squish" (I'm sure there's a technical term for that but squish is what it does when I sleep on it and that's good enough for me!) The measurement of inches doesn't do much for me unless I have a ruler handy - so I chose a few of my favorite products to compare with: 1 - My pillow is just over the height of a Hershey bar... which is 6 inches. 2 - The average weight of a human head is 8-12 lbs, so I chose a gallon of milk (which weighs just over 8 pounds) to set on the pillow to show how much it sinks when you lay your head on it. I'd say not quite half. 3 - I can press a little deeper with my hand and when I let go the pillow fills right back up to the full Hershey Bar height. 4 - I love the protective cover on the outside of the pillow. Nice little zipper that allows you to wash that case if it becomes soiled through your pillowcase. You can see the shredded foam inside but it is shredded and packed so well that you don't feel any distinct pieces. It feels like one solid form. I have really continued to enjoy this pillow as it supports my neck and head well. It is much more firm than I've slept on in the past but so comfortable.
The pillows are good quality, but I expected that they would hold their form better. There isn't much support with these pillows, but they are for my guest bed, so they won't get used that much. I'm glad I got two, because my guests will probably need 2 pillows for 1 person.
