These pillows are EXCELLENT! Figure the usual pillow from your local store that has it all costs $15-ish. For a little bit more you can get some pillows that last more than a few months! I bought some last year and bought another $100+ worth earlier this year when they had them on sale. Everyone who's tried them has commented positively and asked where they came from! None of the pillows have worn down at all. They smell a little latex-y but I usually use a Gain brand laundry soap that's strong enough that you don't notice the smell. Also after a while the smell is less noticeable. Excellent pillows for the price! Yeah, it's a little up there in price (you're still getting a GREAT deal when it's on sale) but it's well worth it! Mine are this style - http://www.pacificpillows.com/pilafopi.html

I j;ust bought 2 Queen size contour latex pillows for half the price I could buy one at any of the stores here. Be sure to read the first page for Woot buyers to get the code for the discount.

I can't recommend latex pillows enough. Cooler than memory foam and more comfortable. I just took a vacation and had normal pillows for a week, when I got back to my latex pillow at home, best night's sleep ever.

I had bought two of these, and for me they are a little too firm for me

Thanks. I really needed to replace one of ours. Perfect timing!

Has anyone with neck pain used the contour pillows? I own a relatively inexpensive memory foam contour pillow and it is ok but I have to alternate with another pillow every few nights. It's kind of strange - for a couple nights I wake up with no neck pain at all, but then I start waking up with a sore neck and have to switch to a "regular" cotton/poly filled pillow (I have some displaced vertebrae in my C-spine, thanks rugby!)

tl;dr How are the contour pillows for neck pain?

I bought these last time there was a deal and was EXTREMELY let down. Doing some googling, I found that Pillowtex was bought out by Pacific Pillows, and have found other people claiming a decline in quality.

I bought a set of four pillows, and found that they were barely filled with the latex memory foam. I had to split the foam between two pillows to them filled enough to be usable. 4 pillows worth of foam was too much for two pillows, but not enough for three, So now i have some excess foam leftover that does nothing.

The pillows now are adequately comfortable, but I still feel duped. Paying for four pillows to only get two usable ones? Not worth it!

Anyone know how these compare the Pacific Pillow down pillows? I bought four of them a few months ago and was very disappointed. They lasted a few weeks at best and for this price, I expected them to last a lot longer.

phtzeng - I think it depends what kind of pillow you purchase. Like I mentioned earlier, I bought 2 last year (standard size) and 4 this year (queen size) but the kind with the holes in it. I'm assuming you got the ones with the latex chunks or whatever in it. Personally I'd prefer something that can still contour evenly hence not getting a contour pillow or the filled ones but the kind with the holes that's shaped more like a normal pillow. I've noticed no difference in quality between the standard's from last year nor the queen's from this year. Maybe they had a bad batch of the filled pillows (quality control issue) or maybe they DID change but I wouldn't say that all Pillowtex pillows have gone downhill unless you'd tried them all to compare, ya know?

@meh3884: I have not used the contour pillows from Pacific Pillows but my experience with contour pillows was the same as yours (no rugby though, just neck pain). I bought their chopped memory foam pillows when they were on sale. My neck pain was gone after a few days and has not returned. The great thing about the chopped foam is that I can shift and lump it to whatever feels right each night and the pillow has not lost its firmness.

@phtzeng:

I was totally confused as to how you spilt these pillows, but then realized by shakki's post that you are talking about a different pillow altogether.

@phtzeng: My pillows from a previous sale sound like yours. I only got 2, I could probably compress it into one almost. If it was more filled I'd like it better, but with the lower fill it is kind of mold able around me. Still disappointing compared to the rave reviews I had seen, but not when compared to the price I paid and comparable cost memory foam pillows I've tried before.

I got two of the queen-sized chunks of memory foam pillows on sale (not these latex ones).

They are great! They are plenty big (they have trouble going into standard pillow cases and really need queen ones). I find them very comfortable, and they were dirt cheap because they say "organic cotton" on them, but they are not organic cotton. Their mistake was my gain.

I have no comment about these, but I think those others were being discussed.

I love latex pillows but you can usually get them for $20 from Kmart. That's where I got my (third) set a little less than a year ago.

I have 2 memory foam pillows that I love. I figured I would give the latex foam a contoured latex foam a shot. $29 seems ok to me.

I went in for one of the standard contour pillows. $27 shipped, and I got the shipping notification already. Looking forward to trying it out.

I got two queen sized latex foam pillows last time these were on sale due to my irritated neck from feather pillows. I am happy with the comfort of the pillows, but they are smaller than any standard pillow I have ever had. I was able to put the queen sized pillow in my standard sized pillow case easily (I know if comes with a pillow case but it is very transparent, so you can see the holes on the pillow, which I don't like seeing). I contacted Pacific Pillows to ask them about it and they responded telling me that normal queen sized pillows are over-sized. (What is that supposed to mean?!) I thought that made no sense and the person obviously believed what they were telling me was true. I didn't think I could get anywhere debating with the person, so I gave up. Overall, I just wish the pillows were wider and taller. Not thicker, because they are already pretty thick. I think they may even be a little too think...

TLDR Version: Small, thick pillows, but good comfort.

Got my pillow in the mail today. Not $27 completely wasted, but will not purchase from this company again. The pillow dimensions were advertised as 24 x 16 x 5. They are actually 23 x 14 x 3 (about 3.75 inches at the height of the contour). The pillow is so thin it actually fits in a pillow case with another, regular pillow, which is how I will try to use it tonight.
