3.0 out of 5 stars Too heavy for my natural sleep position, 21 Nov 2013

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
In terms of the concept, this is a good product. It does what it claims to do and like most clever ideas, is incredibly simple. You simply pour water into a sealed pouch at the base of this pillow and sleep on the other side, which is like a conventional pillow on top. It's easy to fill and the instructions are very clear. I found when I half filled it to the medium level, there was some water sloshing noise and despite following the instructions for expelling the air, I couldn't get all the air out. But when I filled it to the maximum level, for a firmer pillow, somehow it was easier to expel the air.

My problem with it though was as more down to personal foibles. Somehow, I have always only been able to sleep by putting one arm under the pillow that I'm sleeping on. I have no idea how I started this and it probably explains why if my pillow is too soft I get bad neck ache. But try as I might, I have not been able to shake this habit. Now, with this water filled pillow filled to the max, it weighs a LOT. I dropped off OK but in my sleep I moved to my natural sleep position and woke up immediately with what felt like a ten tonne weight on my arm. After a few weeks, I had to give up. It is great for a bolster pillow to read a book with in bed, but that's a bit of a waste.

If you sleep in a "normal" position, I'd guess this is good, but for me, sadly it just didn't work. It's the same reason that the memory foam products don't work for me but of the two, I slightly prefer this option.
