My husband started having neck pain every morning, so I decided to buy new pillows for both of us because ours were old. I don't like fluffy pillows that give no support, so I went looking for memory foam pillows. I found this pair and decided it was inexpensive enough that we could see if the memory foam would help his problem. I had no idea how much support these pillows would offer for my head! I am a person who doesn't need my head to be elevated much to sleep, so these are the perfect depth for me. They're much thinner than regular pillows but don't fall flat when I sleep. If you like puffy, soft pillows, you probably won't like these. But my head feels much more supported than it ever has even on specialty conventional pillows, and my husband does not have the neck pain anymore.
