I am a 100% side sleeper and this pillow has finally allowed me to sleep through the night without a sore shoulder or ear. Based on the reviews of others, it must be reiterated, this pillow is for side sleepers... not back sleepers, not stomach sleepers. However, for an always side sleeping person, this pillow, when combined with my memory foam mattress topper has given me great restfulness. I laid down yesterday just to "test" it... and I fell asleep for almost 4 hours.
It's so well put, all the points he described, both my husband and I have the same problem with our neck after sleeping with this pillow. I DO NOT recommend if you even rarely sleep or toss by ways of your stomach. Also, if you enjoy sleeping on your side with your arm under the pillow, this is not the pillow for you.
I have been using side pillows for about 6 years. I always loved it. I can't sleep without it, so I always take my pillow when I travel even though it takes half of the space luggage. About a two months ago, I left my pillow at the hotel, so I ordered another one. I was surprised when I receive the new one. The quality of the pillow has changed. First of all, the cover used to be soft because it was made of 75% cotton and 25% polyester. But the last one I ordered had 100% polyester which is not as comfortable to the skin. Furthermore, it smelled some kind of chemicals and was giving me a terrible headache. Furthermore, the quality of foam was not the same as before. It was a lot softer and sink in more. I believe the company is cutting down the quality and amount of foam because of cost. Of course, I had no choice but return it. After using the side pillow for about 6 years, I KNOW what it is suppose to feel like. Since I have returned the pillow for refund, I have been searching online and found the "older model" (one that comes in the box not plastic bag) at Relax the Back website so I ordered one. When I received it, it was the new model. They didn't updated photo on their website, so I returned it back again. The pillow came through Tempurpedic warehouse not from Relax the Back. So I searched local furniture store and found the older model of standard "neck pillow". I totally hate it. It's very different than the "neck pillow" and it's not firm enough. I'm still searching for the right pillow. Definitely I won't order one before I try it first.
I purchased my first neck pillow 9 years ago...and it finally just gave out this year! I purchased another type of pillow for side sleepers and that did not work out at all -- my husband is trying it out. So, I ordered this pillow and immediately know why I used it for 9 years! LOVE IT...I have a problem neck from an accident and this supports my neck and head. I am a side sleeper but also sleep on my back and the pillow gives the perfect support in that position, too! I also take my wonderful pillow everywhere with me. Some people may be put off because if this pillow gets cold it gets hard but the warmth of your head will make it just right. Thanks, Tempur Pedic!
I got this as a gift from my daughter for Christmas as I have some shoulder issues and she thought this might help me. It does help my shoulder pain but after one week of waking with intense back and neck pain I retired it. The "fat end," even with the indentation, "digs" into your neck and that was what was causing the neck and related back pain.
The design is not correct as it elevates the base of you neck and then your head is actually lower than your shoulders. Not a good solution trust me.
Tempurpedic, has had a long-term reputation of expensive products and while their beds have had some success this item was a huge mistake. Interesting how they will take back a bed that costs $6,000 but not the pillow!
For $129.00 that is a lot of money for someone to pay for a "sack of cement" as one other reviewer aptly described it. Save your money on this beauty. If not, and you definitely want to buy one, do you know anyone that wants to buy a slightly used one?
They should take them back and dispose of them if everyone is so happy with them. The amount that they would have to take back would be minimal if they are so good! I suspect that the reason they won’t is that there are too many people like me that understand that this remains the rip-off of the year! In short, do not buy it!
The Tempur-Side pillow was in storage for about twelve years as I used to sleep on my stomach with a different pillow. In 2009 an MRI revealed that I had osteoarthritis in my spine, C5-6 and C6-7 vertebrae. Starting, way back in 2001, I would experience numbness in both pinkies, only when I slept. By 2009, the numbness encompassed both hands and I would frequently be wakened at night. My brain told me that if I can sleep with perfect spine alignment, the whole night, the numbness would go away as the nerves were being pinched by the outgrowth of calcium deposits on my vertebrae. I searched the Internet and found out that my osteoarthritis was caused by a lack of calcium so I started taking E-Zorb, which has helped to shrink the calcium deposits on my spine. Sleeping on my side requires me to use the side pillow, which works wonders. As an additional measure, I bought a cervical collar to wear when I go to bed. This, in addition to the Tempur-Side Pillow makes it almost 100% problem proof and I will get a good night's sleep. As things got better and better, I no longer needed the cervical collar. If I never changed my sleeping habits and listened to doctors who were "cut crazy," I never would have solved a simple problem with a change in my pillow and taking a supplement with highly absorbable calcium. My sleep is now in harmony with my body. Who could ask for anything better?
We have two Tempur-Pedic beds, and I sleep on the Tempur-Side pillow. This was my second pillow and overall I like it but have some complaints. The pillow is not ready to use out of the box. It is very hard and has a strong chemical smell. I had my 200 lb husband sit on it for a few days and then waited a couple weeks for the smell to dissipate. Then it works well for me since I am a side sleeper. It will eventually become too soft, lose support, and need to be replaced. Also, the zipper on the cover broke a couple of times, and I had to have it replaced. Despite all of this, I recommend the pillow.
While I have numerous neck and back problems, I am generally a good sleeper. As my problems worsened I invested in the Side Pillow, and it was a big mistake. Even with a cervical collar on, I wake up frequently and have excruciating pain in the morning. My Orthopaedic surgeon (the chief at Hopkins) said to get rid of this pillow, calling it overpriced torture.
