    I posted a thread asking about these when I first got back on the forum but it was ruined by some ignorant h8ters/trolls and got locked.

    I saw the pillows were being sold in a local Wal-Mart and the price was not too bad so I bought one yesterday.

    I used it last night and have to report that I had a very good nights sleep with it (in fact I overslept, heh heh).

    JMO- take it for what it's worth.

    We have been using them for a year and I have to say they are working for us very well.

    Good to read this, i've been interested in them but read lots of complaints...people who just can't be satisfied?
    Saw them at walmart and was surprised by that, i might spring for one on my next visit.

    You can machine wash these and tumble dry them and they come out firm and poofy as new. They’re guaranteed to feel “as new” for a decade.

    I’m an insomniac and I think they’re great.

    I'm in the bedding industry, and I have quite a bit of experience in pillow research and development.

    I can tell you that is possible to get a good night's rest on one of these pillows, but they are on the low end of the scale when it comes to materials and craftsmanship.

    Putting some of the notorious business dealings aside, I just hate to see people pay so much for what is ultimately a $4-$5 pillow

    A few companies that make a really good product that I have no affiliation with:
    Casper
    Avocado
    Purple
    Malouf
    Talalay Bliss

    If you don't like them they'll give you your money back.

    Getting a refund from a BBB "F" rated company can be very challenging.

    Did I tell you that I invented "Your Pillow?" You already have it. In fact, you may have several.

    I read a lot of people talking about pillows and special mattress materials in order to get a restful sleep. I spent 17 years of my life sleeping on the ground with a pair of boots as a pillow. It isn't what you sleep on that matters, it is how tired you are. Too many have adopted a sedentary life-style and drink way too much caffeine during the day.

    I can see a cervical pillow for those with neck injuries, but have a hard time validating expensive bedding items otherwise. Of course the beauty of being an adult is that you get to spend your money any damn way that you please, so go for it if you want it. I just think that people are approaching a lack of sleep from the wrong direction. Go for a long walk, cycle, run, swim, etc in the evening and you could get a good sleep laying on a gravel road.

    I love My Pillow, give it an A+ and even love their jingle.

    I am a skeptic of any such claims. Anecdotal customer testimonials mean nothing. A pillow with three different sizes of polyurethane foam. Average reviews on Amazon.
    Some like it and some don't.
    YMMV.

    I use a buckwheat hull pillow. Been doing it for years.

    It is true that weariness is the best mattress.

    I keel over on the couch almost every night . Wake up at 2:30-4:00 , leak it out, go back to the couch to get my phone - and keel over again .

    I guess I’m active enough !

    According to one reviewer the My Pillow is somewhat modeled after the buckwheat hull concept.

    My basic recipe for good sleep is (Physically + mentally) tired + decent diet + meditation. "Physically tired" from activity/exercise, not from injury, illness etc. "Mentally tired" from using your brain to work, read, learn etc., not from burnout, emotional issues, etc. A decent diet doesn't have to be too involved, just balanced in the way any doctor would have you do. And meditation can be anything from sitting on a mat saying "ohm" to playing guitar to taking a walk outside. Anything that temporarily disengages your mind from the day-to-day grind of "next-next-next-next-next" and allows it to re-focus itself in the bigger picture, whatever that means to you.

    I guess there are some times where I wish we didn’t have such instant access to info.

    Especially info on individuals whose product we’d probably buy if we knew nothing about them .

    Plus - his shirts are beyond odd and he’s got the creepy/character led away in handcuffs at the end of the movie mustache down to a T !

    Let's just say I'll sleep on it.
