I am really picky with my pillows. They have to be so hard or so soft or it just feels like I have no support at all. Living with Fibro is hard enough to deal with, let alone sleeping in a weird way and waking up with a hurt neck. I have never used a memory foam pillow before, so I had no idea what to expect from them.
This pillow came in a nice bag with a handle. It looked nice even zipped up in the other bag. Since it is memory foam all I had to do was bend it a bit and it came right out of the bag. The first thing I noticed about this pillow, was the nice texture it has to it. It was almost a shame to put a pillow case over it.
The first thing I tried out, was the hand in the middle of the pillow trick you always see on infomercials and commercials. I expected this to at least hold the shape for a bit, maybe 5 to 10 seconds, but it didn't hold it at all. It came up with my hand as I raised it. That kind of disappointed me a little bit but in the end if the pillow helped me sleep, it doesn't even matter.
I found this pillow really thin. I ended up putting it on top of my current pillow just to get the neck support I want. It sure does feel amazing though! I have heard a lot of people talk about how nice memory foam is and I blew them all off thinking it can't be that great, but this really is that great. It's not too hard and not too soft, to me it is perfect and I am a side sleeper.
My husband sleeps on his back, his sides and his stomach. He took to this pillow right away. He uses just this pillow and it totally fine and has neck support. I guess it really depends on how thick of a pillow you need. If you can use a thin one then this would be a great pillow for you, if you like them a bit thicker, you may want to get two and stack them or just stack one on your current pillow.
