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 love memory foam pillows! They cradle your head so nicely, without any neck pain! They make sleep come easy and you sleep deeply. The only thing I did not like about these were they were smaller than standard size, so they do not fill the pillow cases.
I suffer from chronic pain and am often forced to spend long periods of time in bed. After years of placing, replacing and placing again 6 or 7 pillows behind me in an attempt at giving me support I desperately needed (with comfort that rarely came), I started researching. I came across this Avana Kind 4 piece set and instantly knew my troubles, and sanity, would soon be gone. I'm not kidding, it is amazing! I adore how it conforms to your needs. Small adjustments allow you to sit in a full up position, or more of a leisurely leaning back way! It came quickly in the mail and Overstock was certain to make sure that I was pleased in every way. I sometimes even bring just the leg supporter and rounded pillow out into the living room and use the pillow for lumbar support! I looked around too, and this was the best brand at the best price right here! Hope this helps, because I am honestly a Very happy customer!
This is great pillow. It has a washable outer cover with the pillow inside. The pillow is a soft breathable material with a foam pillow inside of that. Inside the foam inner pillow is a soft stuffing of memory foam and some other soft puffy fabric pieces. After five years the inner foam envelope broke at a glued seam and the pillow became lopsided...so I ordered another. I cut open my original pillow to see what's inside. This pillow is awesome.
I bought this with my fingers, eyes and toes crossed b/c there were no other reviews! Well I am happy to report that this 'system' of pillows is perfect! Yes it seems expensive but it's so worth it. For anyone that needs to be semi-upright whether it's for congestion, reading or any other reason, these pillows offer superior support and b/c the angle is adjustable simply by moving the largest wedge up or down. And the behind the knee booster is awesome too! If reading in bed you'll have to supply your own little pillow but I'm sure almost everyone has an extra soft one laying around. Get it! You won't regret it. But it is BIG! But I don't find that an issue but someone else may. It' takes up one side of our queen bed.
We purchased these pillows to go along with our new BeautyRest 4 inch gel memory foam topper. The pillows are very nice quality and cradle your neck and head well. They return to their original shape. They fit well in standard pillowcases.
My husband absolutely loves these pillows. He had a neck injury in a car wreck a few years ago, and has trouble finding pillows that don't make him hurt when he wakes up in the morning. For my husband, it was almost instant relief. For me, with some degeneration in my neck, I've had a little more trouble getting used to the pillows. The first few days, I woke up witha very stiff neck. I'm finding though, that it is getting better.
I would recommend these pillows to someone looking for a thicker type pillow with memory foam technology. My husband and I are both side sleepers, and these pillows seem to work well for us.
My only complaint is that the description of these wedges gave no indication of the depth/thickness of the wedges. My husband recently had surgery which now requires him to sleep elevated. Some of the wedges looked much thinner, so I went for the thickest one. This one is about 11" at it's thickest point. It is good quality, with a very nice washable cover. Would be great to sit up in bed reading or for patients who are bedridden. However, I think a slightly thinner one may have worked better for our purposes. It wpuld have been nice to have all the information available when purchasing, especially on items such as this that are unreturnable after opening.
As others have noted, these pillows don't look to be very substantial. Don't be put off by their appearance. Rest assured (pun intended), these pillows are *comfortable*! They provide excellent support. After the first night I slept on them, I woke up the next morning without my usual neck cramps or lower back pain.
Having used them now for over a month, I can say that these pillows were the best purchase I've made in a long while.
Our order came within 4 days and it was very close to Christmas to boot! The pillows were not vacuum sealed so they were already full size when they came out of the box. No waiting to test them out. They are firm, but soft enough to be conforming so your head is supported but you don't feel like you're sleeping on a board. We love our new pillows and have had a deeper, higher quality sleep since we started using them. By far the best Christmas present we received.
My daughter was Thrilled Christmas morning.! She loves it & its So cool w the bamboo etching on it,which I love. She wanted a bod pillow last yr., so scrolling thru ur items Ta-Da! THE ONE😀. Thank U so much Overstock. The products r new & packaged so well. The customer service is friendly,knowledgeable,& open 24/7. It has cooling gel in it also.Ideal for Calif.weather & comfort. Happy New Years Guys. Ill be back for My orders next. Thanx a million for her delightment.Cynthia.
The firmness is very good, not too firm but not too soft. It feels solid enough. The size for me, smaller than any of the other wedge pillows that I found shopping online -- is wonderful. I am a small person though and a larger person probably would not like that, unless they wanted to use it in a recreational vehicle or such, which for that this would be perfect.
They call it an acid reflux pillow and I am not sure it is good for that, or not yet, but I will go with that.
There is no question that YES it has helped my neck and throat, coughing, breathing and sleeplessness. It has some reaction with acid reflux and I think over time, since it is helping my throat, it will most probably be a big help for that too. The idea of sleeping with your neck straighter, the thing that sleeping on any wedge will do for you, is obviously a great idea. My neck doesn't creak anymore and I am grinding my teeth less.
It has been a big help with keeping me away from getting bronchitis, that my mom and I seemed before to pass back and forth.
This is the best pillow I have ever bought and one of the best products that I ever have.
I read some of the bad reviews posted here about this pillow. You DO have to use it properly, and infact my husband gets it turned around and the walls are shaking again.....BUT this has been a true miracle from the first night he used it. It is a little firm - but that's probably one reason it works so well - and it takes getting used to. If you are looking for a soft squishy pillow - this ain't the one for you, but if you are looking to cure a loud snoring problem....this IS your pillow!!! My adult daughter spent three nights with me this week while my husband was gone on business....she can wake the neighbors with her snoring.....she slept in my bed with me and used the snore pillow....not a peep!!! That was a miracle. She also said that for once she didn't feel 'ragged out' in the morning. It is not THE most comfortable pillow ever, but the crazy thing has done what it says for us. NOTE: BE SURE YOU PAY ATTENTION TO THE PILLOW....THE HALF MOON SHAPE GOES UNDER YOUR NECK....OR IT DOESN'T WORK. I highly recommend this.....WEEEEELLLLLLL worth the money after trying a ton of other options with no luck at all :) :) Buy it!
Very comfortable; I like the light Lavender scent; The only issue is that it was supposed to also come with a spritzer of the scent to refresh the pillow periodically and it was not included. Other than that, I love this pillow; perfect support for my neck and shoulders.
Pillow is great for acid reflux Not a cure but a valuable aid in reducing reflux. The length is more comfortable than the shorter pillows which make a steeper incline It conforms better with my body which helps me to rest without sliding down as bad as the shorter pillows. Firm and good quality materials
I would recommend for sufferers of acid reflux after being checked by a physician to rule out other possible causes of acid reflux
I wasn't sure ordering this online without seeing the product but the moment I received this I knew I made a great choice. This pillow feels wonderful and the cooling gel is a nice touch. There is a bit of a smell with the memory foam but if you air it out a bit it's fine. This is the most comfortable pillow I have ever owned. I highly recommend it.
Several years ago I set out on a quest to find the perfect pillow. It seems to me that if a pillow is so soft that your head ends up on the bed, it’s the same as not having a pillow. I like a firm pillow but I have tested a few that are too firm, which makes me feel like I’m eating celery, in a great pizza restaurant. A pillow should be all happiness and peace.
I now have 20 pillows and 14 of the top 15 are Malouf pillows. Every night I have a pillow festival. I have purchased every pillow I own except this “Zoned Dough Chamomile” pillow which was given to me in exchange for an honest review. After trying it out for a few days, I can see now why they were so confident I’d give it a good review.
If I just picked up this pillow I would be basically unimpressed. It doesn’t seem thick or firm or springy enough. I would have to notice, however, the Tencel mesh cover, which I think is just incredible. I put pillow slips on my pillows, even though Malouf pillows feel better without them, but I have not been able to put a pillow slip on this one yet. I don’t understand what Tencel is but I know if makes for amazing sheets and now it is an incredible covering for two of my pillows.
This “Zoned Dough Chamomile” pillow is different than all my other pillows in that I don’t immediately notice if it is too soft or too firm. It’s like my head just floats on it. It’s hard to describe. It’s almost like it’s not there but head is still cushioned, like it is floating on air. Someone really spent some time engineering this pillow just right. It is quite remarkable. I am impressed. It must be from the future.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the scent. I don’t even know what a “chamomile scent” is. (I know I can’t say it and had to look it up to spell it.) I wanted to get one because a friend has one and he says loves this particular pillow. The scent for me is unusually pleasant, taking me back to my college days when I was young and immortal and I went hiking in the mountains. It smells like wildflowers to me. Sadly, that benefit is mostly lost on me, however, because now I am old and I use a CPAP machine. (I use the pillow without the machine when I take naps, however, and it is very soothing.)
If you are concerned about how strong the scent will be, don’t worry at all. It comes very lightly scented and then, if you spray it with this tiny magic vial that comes with it, you can make the scent stronger with just a spray or two. (Don’t spray it too much. I did six or seven sprays with my peppermint Malouf pillow and I could smell it 50 feet away for an hour or two.)
I’m trying to find something to criticize about this pillow so this review will have some credibility. I guess my only complaint is that I think this is a mid-loft pillow and it just doesn’t seem thick enough. I got a standard size and I think if I had tested a larger size it would have been thicker and firmer. If you like Malouf pillows and you like a firmer pillow, get a high-loft size, if it is available.
My family thinks I’m crazy to have more than one pillow but I strongly believe that investing in your sleep is something that pays off in a big way. It makes night time such a joy. I have tested out a lot of different pillows now and I think this Chamomile one may be the best one yet. (I have another Malouf pillow I may like better, perhaps just because I can tell it is there.) The competition for the number one slot is fierce. I have found several “perfect pillows” and they are all made by Malouf. You can’t go wrong with this pillow, especially if you feel like falling asleep in a mountain meadow.
It's pretty firm, more than I thought it would be. But that just means it should hold up more over time. I ended up not using in bed so much but I like to use it when I'm relaxing on the floor watching tv with my pups. It doesn't slide and is comfortable.
This pillow is so perfect! I bought it for traveling, and I tested it out at home. It's not to hard or soft. It's bigger than I expected yet still small enough to put in my suitcase. If looking for a perfect travel pillow this is it :)
Now that I am older, I sometimes experience Acid Reflux at night, so thought a wedge pillow would be a good choice for using to fall asleep. This particular wedge pillow was a GREAT choice. The height was perfect, the width is perfect and I have actually awakened a few times, in the morning, still on the wedge and my regular pillow. I'm a side sleeper, so you know it has to be comfy to sleep on my side on wedge. The firmness is just right for me too. I have a sleep number bed with a a 2" memory foam topper, so thought the memory foam would be good for the wedge. Love it!
Many wedge pillow are too short and you end up slipping down during the night and no longer inclined as is the purpose of the wedge pillow. I had been using a 4" and felt it was time to add a little more height.The 7" height is perfect. But you really want to start out lower to get use to it.
I bought the cream colored one for my 2 yr old and I am very satisfied so far. It seems to be a good enough quality memory foam and he likes it. I like the plushness/softness of the water resistant cover and that it comes with a pillow case to put over that if you want to. i Haven't had a major spill on it so I can't say how water resistant it actually is, but I like it so much I would buy another one if this one got ruined somehow.
I was a bit skeptical in purchasing this pillow as I do not love memory foam, I may have changed my mind. In my opinion this pillow is not our typical memory foam pillow. It is much lighter and compressed with less effort. It also seems to return to its original shape quicker than typical memory foam. Ever since I started using this pillow my neck pain has gone away as it provides great stability. I also would not that this pillow works great for all sleepers. Whether you sleep on your back, side, or stomach it forms to what you need. I would most definitely recommend this pillow to anyone!
Purchased this pillow in a King as the Queen was not available and the standard size was more expensive. I received the item promptly. The Pillow has NO smell/odor as some reviews reported. The Pillow is a bit heavy however because of its size (King) But I have no reason to move it until I change the sheets! This pillow is not one of those cheap discount store "specials" - this pillow is dense, contoured and has a thickness that does not "cave in" when your head hits it - it cradles & supports your neck and head. The density a/k/a quality is what make this pillow stand out. I slept quite well the 1st night (last night) I used it. The height is PERFECT - as my prior cheap foam pillows were too high, causing neck strain or too mushy and just collapsed. I sleep on a Full Sized Mattress and this pillow takes up almost the entire bed and I LOVE it! I bought the King because it was cheaper and I wish I did the research on this pillow years ago! I am going to research the Malouf Mattresses now!! This pillow will NOT disappoint!
I was very pleased with this pillow as was my husband. The pillows are very comfortable and supportive of your neck. Also, the cool gel which keeps your head from getting hot is great in summer & winter because it's cold it is just cool enough that your head doesn't get sweaty no matter the time of year.
For a better night's sleep, lay back and sink your head into memory foam pillows and protectors sold on Overstock.com. Memory foam is both soft and springy. It conforms to your body shape, making you more comfortable in bed, and it returns to its original shape after use. Memory foam might help keep your head and neck aligned as you sleep, which reduces pain when you wake up. Memory foam pillows and protectors on Overstock.com come in a wide range of styles and sizes. Usually, you only need one pillow at a time, but keep a backup on hand in case you need to clean your first one. Discover the types and features of memory foam pillows and protectors Overstock.com has to offer.
Wedge pillows form a triangular shape that is thicker toward your headboard and thinner as it gets closer to your shoulders and back. The design elevates your head, neck, shoulders, and back with the goal of improving your airflow and breathing as you sleep while keeping your back straight. Your head sits up a bit higher above the bed itself, which makes wedge pillows an ideal choice for reading in bed. Consider stacking a smaller pillow on top of the wedge pillow for additional comfort.
Contour memory foam pillows have an S-shaped curve to them. These types of pillows are designed to keep your neck aligned with your spine as you lay on your back. Your head rests perfectly in the middle part of the contour pillow, which is typically thinner than either of the edges. The thick edge near your neck also helps steady your shoulders to keep you from tossing and turning.
Body pillows run the entire length of your body, helping you better customize your sleeping position. A body pillow should be flexible enough to have support for your head while reaching down to at least your knees. That way, you can put the pillow in between your knees as you lay on your side while cuddling with the pillow underneath your head.
Specialty designs come in handy for very specific situations. A half-moon cylinder has a flat surface that goes against your bed while the curved part supports your neck. An any-position pillow lets you lay on your back, sides, or stomach while giving your head and neck the support they need. U-shaped pillows wrap around your neck to keep your head from moving too much.
Combinations and Sets
Multipurpose pillows combine elements of two or more memory foam types. For example, you might find a wedge pillow that has a contour curve in it to better conform to the curves of your back. Sets of memory foam pillows and covers have more than one pillow in them, such as a wedge pillow for your back, a contour pillow for your neck, and a small pillow that goes in between your knees. Sets often include two pillows so you have a backup. You might also see four pillows in a single set.
Traditional Shapes and Sizes
Look for memory foam pillows and protectors that come in traditional, rectangular pillow shapes. Sizes range from standard to California king. It takes two king-size pillows to reach across the width of a king-size bed. The same is true for queen sizes. Find the sizes of pillows that work best for you if you want to mix and match sizes to create a layer of pillows against your headboard.
Features of Memory Foam Pillows and Protectors
Memory foam pillows and protectors come in all types of firmness. Soft and medium-soft pillows have a lot of give, letting you sink back into them. Medium to medium-firm memory foam pillows provide just enough springiness for you to roll over into any sleep position without being uncomfortable. Firm and extra-firm mattresses work for people who sleep on their backs to keep the back and airway aligned.
Gel memory foam is a special material designed to keep your head cool as you sleep. Air pockets in the high-tech gel foam whisk away heat, which can lead to better sleep. Some pillows have memory foam infused with gel, while others have a layer of gel sitting on top of memory foam underneath.
Protectors and Covers
Make sure you match the right covers and protectors with the memory foam pillows you purchase. Many styles of memory foam pillows come with their own protectors and covers. These covers are often white or off-white, so they complement your existing bed linens and decor. Some memory foam pillows don't have covers or protectors but sport a soft outside layer that feels comfortable to the touch. Look for separate covers for mixing and matching different hues.
Memory Foam Pillows and Protectors FAQs
What kinds of protectors work best for memory foam pillows?
Look for protectors that fit your lifestyle, so long as they are the right size. Rayon from bamboo represents an eco-friendly and sustainable option, while cotton also comes from natural fibers. Polyester contains fine, pliable fibers that weigh less than cotton. Microfiber has a soft sheen to it that comes from synthetic materials woven tightly together. Protectors with zippers keep your memory foam pillows secure inside.
How do you keep memory foam pillows and protectors clean?
Remove the protectors and put them in the washing machine for regular cleaning. Use gentle dishwashing liquid or laundry detergent on a cloth dipped in lukewarm water to take care of stains on your pillows. Let the pillow air dry completely before covering it with a protector. Freshen up a memory foam pillow by sprinkling a light dusting of baking soda on it, then letting it sit for one hour. Use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum to remove the baking soda, then repeat on the other side.
What types of bedding go with memory foam pillows and protectors?
Complement your memory foam pillows with other memory foam items for a complete night's rest. For example, try a foam top that goes on your traditional mattress for an extra layer of softness. Memory foam mattresses have layers of this high-tech substance embedded in the mattress. Combine a memory foam mattress, mattress topper, and pillows for a comfortable sleep experience.
