Ok let me say that I've tried Tempur and Isotonic and both were too hard which is not comfortable. I was a bit doubtful about this purchase because of the size, but it seriously does cradle your head. Let me tell you that this was hands down the best sleep I got and the bamboo/rayon cover could easily be compared to the thousand dollar pillow top mattresses. It may seem pricey, but for the price you get real quality that will last for years, in comparison to a down pillow that will end up being a sheet. Don't hesitate on this item, buy it now!
