This is my first foam pillow and I was not sure if I would like it, OMG it is wonderful!!!! My boyfriend and I were having neck problems and wasn't getting a good night sleep...UNTIL we slept on this pillow.....neck pain was gone in just a few days (2)!!! There was no odor and the pillow regained it's size from packing in hours, ao we were able to sleep on it he very first night, I am a side sleeper and love to hug my pillow, so this pillow is not as soft as my last pillow and it took some time to adjust and break it in, like any new pillow. I would buy this Pillow again!!! If you really like a pillow you can roll up in a ball this is not for you but, if you have Neck Pain or Back pain please give it a try it has really hepled me!!!
