These pillows are soft and fluffy, which does make them look great on the bed and are wonderful for watching television or reading a book as far as support goes. However, when it's time for sleeping, I tend to be a side sleeper more than a back sleeper and these are VERY fluffy which makes for a somewhat awkward position when trying to fall asleep. I thought with "memory" pillows, they would have a bit more "give" and allow me to sleep in most most any position without developing a crick in my neck before morning. Thankfully, I have not developed neck/shoulder/back pain as a result of these, so I really cannot complain - they just aren't AS comfortable on the side as I had hoped. I am probably going to wait a while, purchase some pillows specifically for side sleepers, and continue to use these - perhaps with my shams since they are so puffy and hold their shape so well. Over all, a good purchase, just not the perfect pillow for me, personally.
