Not quite what I expected...
on 1 January 2009
For some time I had been trying to find a pillow for my partner to help remedy her neck and back pain. At the mention of "memory foam pillow", she was most enthusiastic, so I searched around for a while before settling on the SilentNight Impress Comfort Core Memory Foam Pillow.
We both envisaged something firm yet soft, which one could sink one's head into.
However, this pillow is not soft. It is very firm. Your head does not sink into it and it is not particularly comfortable to sleep on. Therefore, my partner did not use it for long enough for me to be able to speculate as to whether or not is has a positive effect on bodily aches and pains.
I'll be brutally honest - I slept on it myself for a night or two and my sleep was far from terrible, although my head did feel unnaturally elevated. If you sleep only on your side, your head and neck feel well supported, but if you like sleeping on your back or your front, you should definitely avoid this product.
