Tempur Millennium Queen Large
Perfect for me...hard to sleep without it.
I'm trying to remember how long I've had this pillow for....I believe it's been going strong for 10 years now. To cut a long story short, I used to get sore necks on a regular basis and since I've been using the Millenium pillow, they're a thing of the past.
It takes a while to get used to the size (looks a bit under-sized in a 6ft-wide bed and a standard-size pillowcase), the shape and the firmness, so you need to give it a week or two. After the first couple of nights I remember thinking I'd made a terrible, and terribly expensive, mis...Read moretake. The pillow is so dense that it you sleep on your side, it blocks out your hearing in one ear, which is disconcerting and I remember my neck pain wasn't alleviated immediately. Fast-forward two weeks though and the pain had gone, never to return. I'd grown used to the firmness and density of my new pillow and my skeptical husband had become intrigued. He'd been outraged by the price when I'd bought it and, despite experiencing neck pain himself, was adamant that he didn't want or need one himself. As it happened, though I was loth to admit it, I felt my Millenium Queen XL was a little on the large size for me, so I (generously) suggested MOH try it out for a night or two. My cunning plan worked and he took to it like a duck to water, thereby allowing me to buy the next size down (Millenium Queen L) for myself which, like me, is slightly shallower, ha. I shopped around for ages until I was satisfied I'd found the best price for either pillow...but it was still high enough to induce mild myocardial infarction both times. I do wonder why these pillows are so expensive - they should be available on prescription for people with chronic neck pain who can't afford to purchase one. I can't comment on the other Tempur pillow models, I just know this particular one seems to work for both of us. We both struggle to get a good night's sleep on other makes of pillow which contain other fillings. Fibre, feather, wool, latex, nothing works as well for us. I don't always wake up with neck pain when I use other pillows but it does seem harder to get comfortable and to fall asleep. The only other thing to note is that we are both predominantly side sleepers - I can't speak for back sleepers but I personally don't find the Millenium to be as comfortable or conducive to sleep in this position.
