    That is the type of pillow that I was talking about , that I have a request in for, but have not gotten yet. I will keep requesting them until I get one.
    Is yours soft, @Chrissy Page ?
    I had one before that was supposed to be healthy and had magnets in it; but it was really hard under my head and did not support my head and neck properly at all.
    After getting the memory foam pillow that is soft and fits better, then I thought maybe one of these pillows that are supposed to be the best support would aldo work for me if it were the shredded memory foam and softer than the one I used to have.
    I like a smaller pillow, and think that if I had one of these shaped ones that was soft and comfortable, that would be what I would like the best.

    It's not real soft but it's not real hard either...it's just right. I like it. Got it a few years ago and it's still good.

    Can't remember where I got it, was with my daughter so she probably bought it for me but can't remember the store.

    @Yvonne Smith - good to hear you are happy with your pillow, bamboo must be good if it keeps memory foam cool
    I will never try memory foam again, its just not for me. In the summer it softens too much, as all foam does
    We are all different and you've found something that suits you and I agree about the zip, a simple solution and
    I prefer pillows with zips. My latest pillow has a zip and 3 inner pads, I have kept all 3 pads intact though.

    I don't know what my pillow is but it doesn't change temperatures....living here in Fresno I couldn't stand a hot pillow!!


    Actually my pillowcase is my favorite. It came with a set of sheets I bought at Costco once. Love them!

    Don't know what material but it's satiny, silky and cool. It came with two pillowcases so I took one to my daughter's because I love it so much....I might even pack it to take to my son's.

    The bamboo pillows have shredded memory foam, @Patsy Faye , and that is much cooler than regular memory foam, because it is little popcorn-sized pieces of soft memory foam, and then there are air spaces in between the foam.
    Because it is in pieces, and not only a block of memory foam, you can push it into the shape that you want, and it also keeps pretty cool even with my head on it because of the airflow in the pillow.

    Another one that they have is supposed to be even cooler, and that is the gel-pack memory foam pillow. I have requested one of these to try, and I will definitely be reporting on it here if I am able to get one from Review Trader.
    Here is a picture of the gel pillows, and you can see the kind of discount you get from Amazon Review trader on things like this.
    This one does not say that the memory foam is shredded; so it might be that the foam is one piece and then the gel top is to keep your head cool.

    @Yvonne Smith - I'm a bit of an expert on bedding Yvonne, at least for me own needs
    I investigated the gel pillows and mattress toppers - they have mixed reviews (everyone's different)
    but from an expert report (not me :p) the gel is more of a gimmick than having real substance and not too sure
    regarding toxins in this stuff. If you are happy with your pillow, I would stay with that one
    I will definitely try a bamboo pillow case if I find one at a reasonable price, tried Tencil, tried Silk, so bamboo may
    be better :)

    I found a small sized memory foam pillow that I really like. It is an odd shape, sort of like a half moon or thick crescent shape, with just a little bit gone from the half moon.
    It is memory foam, but just the right thickness where it gives for my head, and is not as deep and thick as the shredded memory foam pillows are. This one is only about 2-3 inches thick, and is uniform in thickness.
    Because it curves inward at the bottom, it fits around my shoulders , and it is just very comfortable. I don't know how it will be next summer when it is hot again, but at least now it is just fine. A regular pillow case doesn't fit the size or shape; but it has a soft washable cover that came with it.
