Default Bed Pillows

OK. I have struck out and am at my wits end. I need 2 pillows for my side of the bed that are very firm and very full and will not flatten. Just ordered 2 Serta extra firm and they are a joke. Maybe an inch or two thick and folding around my head on first use. I need something that will keep shape and not just form a taco shell around my larger than normal head.

Subscribed cause my pillows suck and do the same shit. It looks like a roller nailed them over and over.

We went to a specialist pillow shop last time we bought new pillows. I like a medium to firm pillow and got a latex one which is fantastic. There is nothing like trying them out before you buy.

I am actually thoroughly pissed. Behind me now on my new pillows is a name brand extra firm and it feels like someone understuffed a pillowcase with two fucking tortillas and called it a day,

They all wear out and need replacement occasionally. I go about two years between pillows.

Iíve got a closet full of pillow failures. From cheap target ones to $100+ brookstone ones. My current one Iíve had a few years is from Costco and itís amazing. However they donít sell it and the same item I bought from amazon is slightly different. So I might never be able to get one again. Even when I travel it comes with me.

I can honestly say after using a my pillow for a year .not worth it. Was ok at first, then started to flatten , washing it helped but then it would flatten progressively faster every time. I'm not washing my pillow every 2 days. Great advertising, mediocre product at best

I prefer the bamboo pillows that we buy reasonably at a bamboo factory outlet in Pigeon Forge. The cover is like a thick silk. And they're firm and very heavy.

Pillow buying sucks. I found if I go to Macy’s and try flattening/crushing each one till I find the one that maintains its shape I buy it.

Check out Ghost Pillow. I got one a few months ago and love it.

I find a 6 pack of natural light makes any pillow awesome and seconds as a good laxative

I've been using contour foam pillows for years. They really give me good neck support.

Try this idea.

About 8 months ago, I was watching my then 11 month old son sleep in his crib after I put him to sleep.

I marveled at his posture. He was just lying there on his back. He slept perfect. No pillow needed. His neck and spine were in perfect line.

I threw out my pillow that very night. I just learned to sleep on my back with no pillow. I feel fantastic in the morning.

Try throwing out your pillow and just sleeping on your back.

About 6 weeks I started a thread about a $200 pillow I wanted to try.

$200 for a pillow, worht it?

I did try it and it will be returned as it has developed a flat spot already. It was supposed to be firm, but it’s far from it!
