I use one on the couch to watch TV while laying down. Super comfy.

Bought these during the Woot Off and I am NOT impressed. Not a single feature, from the design to the firmness, makes this a good or even decent pillow. Shipping was fast though. Don't waste your money.

Bought these last time and did not like them. Just did not feel comfortable on my face. I took @thunderthighs suggestion and tried them on the couch and I do like using it occasionally while watching tv.

Got these last time, not a perfect pillow but serviceable for the herniated discs in my neck. Keeps my spine aligned and keeps me from tossing and turning as much. Might be in for another two for future use.

I actually like using this pillow. I use it on top of a second pillow for height, but it's very comfy. As an added bonus, I use the second sidesleeper to help my 6 month old sit up. It works much better than the Boppy pillow and he doesn't hate it a much as he Boppy.

I also got these last time and although ok, just not good enough. Already back to my regular pillows.

Bought these the first time around and liked them.... left one behind at a hotel and gifted one to someone else.... so bought more the 2nd time I saw them -- and they were awful... lumpy, sewn badly with fraying seams and not at all comfortable -- so clearly there is a manufacturing consistency issue here -- I wouldn't buy them a 3rd time.

Much like any product, some people like them and others don't. I bought a pair for my wife and me. My wife dumped her's during the middle of the night and I never used mine again after the first night. Of course, you may get better miliage with yours than we got with ours...or you may agree with us.

Got these last time. Wish I could return them because they suck. IF,and this is a big if, you are the kind of side sleeper who never moves when you fall into a drug induced coma, AND you can manage to get this pillow just right before you trip to the land of Morpheus, then this woot is for you. Otherwise, big skip.

Got this last time and I love it. The drawbacks are there--weird plastic smell, crappy stitching, can't put my pillow case on it properly--but it works great. I don't roll around as much in my sleep, and it does help my back and neck feel better.

There was a bit of an adjustment though. I spent 2 solid weeks with just this pillow to give it a fighting chance, and it really sucked when I tried to switch back to a regular pillow. I wouldn't mind a quality upgrade, but overall, this was a great investment for me.

Bought these before and just took the second pillow to donate to Good Will this week. They're OK if you don't move around much, but I always had trouble figuring out where to comfortably position my "bottom" arm. The ear hole is a little weird, too. The others are correct about their flimsiness and the general "hotel quality" of the pillow cover. I can't recommend these.

I got these during the woot!off. I'm not convinced that my neck feels any better, but it feels great when I get my ear right in that hole. I never realized how annoying it is to lie on my ear. I'm still going to have to give this some more time, but I think it's worth the $10+tax+ship to try it out.

All of y'all who don't want yours, send them my way. I don't get the feeling these will last very long (they just feel very cheaply made) so having spares would be a good idea.

Got this style pillow from my local drug store in their "as seen on TV" aisle...horrible horrible horrible...I gave them away to someone who said the same thing, but she does use them in the car as a travel pillow. Don't buy them, they are a waste of even a few dollars. I use a Serta memory foam pillow and it really helps with my neck pain.

I love SideSleeper Pro Pillows with Matching Zippered Pillow Cases! I ca comfortably sleep, read, watch TV9o 2.

I love to cuddle. when I lay down with the pillow correctly, it almost feels like someone is holding me. It's even a great pillow for the car!

Try not to get hung up on the color as these pillows will fit into any pillow case you want! There is something really comforting about this pillow and whats even better is that I can use one and on a regular basis and if I have any issues with the one I have, THEE'S A BACK UP!

I also bought some. I think it's a great design and it would be a rockstar pillow if it was filled with better quality material. The batting is horrible, not squish-able, so maybe if you like extra firm pillows these might be your thing! I would love have one of these filled with those tiny styrofoam beads...

I usually sleep on my back. When I was pregnant, I tried to sleep on my side as is recommended, but every time I woke up during the night (which happens frequently in the last months), I was always on my back. I started using this pillow and it kept me on my side all night. I found it comfortable.

I bought 4 of these last time on Woot and really like them. Wash the zip on pillowcases before sleeping on them because they do have that cotton-mill factory smell. It takes a little practice to get the pillowcases back on correctly - you start with the short side then go to the long side where the zipper is. They are very comfortable for side sleepers. I put the long side facing my chest. I would buy them again.

I bought one many months ago because I always sleep on my side, and I love it to death. I can actually sleep super-comfortably now. Time to get a couple more, I'm thinking!

My cat loves them too. I find her curled up inside the "U" all the time.

It's really a personal thing - I LOVE these pillows but my husband refuses to even try one. (A plus is that now he no longer steals my pillow!) I have always preferred sleeping on my side, but need just the right firmness under my neck and the edge of the pillow pushed up tight against my shoulder. Nothing ever worked just right till I tried these. You have to follow the advice on the simple little instruction sheet - start off with your neck straight, not curled forward, and push the long side up tight against your spine. My bottom arm often wraps around the short side.

I sleep SO well on this pillow that I'm trying to figure out how to fit one into my suitcase for our vacation next month. I know I will miss it and have trouble readjusting, especially to a motel pillow. I think I can sacrifice some clothes or shoes to make room - I think I have to!

So it probably isn't right for most people - but for certain people like me it is WONDERFUL!

I got these last time and I love it. No more scrunching up my old pillow for more support. Great price too. I'm actually using it right now!

Bought these during the last Woot-off. The pillow didn't work for me (mostly because I have a CPAP hose that gets in the way), but the workmanship was shoddy anyway. The first pillow came with 2 seams unsewn. I haven't opened the second one yet.

I agree completely, my household credibility as an online shopping ninja took serious damage after we received these things. I went out and bought a thick standard side sleeper pillow and have been happy with it.

Bought two of these last time. i am a perpetual side sleeper. They're ok if you tend not to toss and turn. Otherwise, you need to either turn the pillow over or have another one at the ready to turn onto. I sleep like a rock and can sleep on a rock so I wasn't expecting an improvement in anything. I guess you could say I was caught up in the Woot moment.

I got these the last time they were up, and it's true, they are really cheaply made, but you get what you pay for. For what they cost, I'm quite pleased with them. I don't use it every night, but just when my neck is acting up from a long day hunched over my desk/keyboard. And I sleep like a rock when I do use this pillow. It is cheaply made from cheap materials though, and I expect it will get annoyingly lumpy quick, at which point I'm planning on using it as a pattern to make one out of better material, stuffed with buckwheat hulls maybe. It was worth $10 for two though. Glad I tried it!

Why are you charging sales tax on the freight amount? It's only due on the product cost, the freight is a service, not taxable.

Sorry for the seam problems. I hope you emailed support@woot.com for assistance.

We check with each state on their requirements for taxes. Most states do require that we change tax on the shipping of any taxable item.

Sorry.

oh man I just bought this a few weeks ago and it's amazing. The button piece ripped though, but other than that I haven't had neck problems. I'm just sad that I didn't hold out for this cheaper deal!

Don't waste your money. I bought these last time they were offered. After two nights, my wife and I tossed them in the trash. Not comfy at all.

Got a couple last time they were here. Wasn't sure about it at first, but after a week or two, tried going back to my regular pillow and realized this curvy thing really has helped me. The ear "wells" are the main feature, for me. They could be a little bigger, but have helped a lot with the ear pain I used to get from regular pillow side-sleeping. I don't move much at night, so perhaps I'm who these are best for. In a nutshell, it takes a bit to get used to this pillow, but if you want it for the ear wells, it's worth a try, especially for this price.

I like mine a lot (I'm a side-sleeper). My husband uses it, but doesn't find it to be better than a regular pillow. I bought them hoping he would sleep on his side more and snore less, but I still have to nudge him to get him to turn from his back to his side.

Disadvantage: the pillowcases are flimsy and split at the seams.

These were hit or miss for me when it came to sleeping on my side, but for anyone who sleeps on their side andhas knee problems, these are a must-have.

Slip them between your knees when lying on your side and it keeps both your knees and your ankle bones from bumping. They're less bulky/lighter than regular pillows, so turning over in the middle of the night isn't as much of a production to get them back where you want them. They come right with you.

*shrug* Maybe not the intended use, but at least now, I don't feel like I wasted my money.

good concept but way too hard for me perfect to CPAP users too, but would need it softer fill or the best would be latex foam, my fav!
