I recently left my favorite pillow in a hotel, and I needed a replacement. I bought three different foam pillows on overstock looking for the perfect replacement for sleeping. This pillow was not the "under-the'head" replacement. However, I use it for a prop against the headboard when I sit up watching tv, reading, etc. I purchased the firm pillow and it is very firm and thick. It is too firm and thick for me for under my head, but to sit up or as a "hug" pillow it is perfect for me. I am planning on buying another. One more note, it is much longer than any other queen size pillow I bought. It is more like a king pillow.
