Has anyone tried the pillow advertised on TV My Pillow?

I'm looking for ways to get better sleep. I darkened my room with curtains to keep a little more light out and now thinking about trying this pillow. It basically 2 for $100. What are your thoughts on this pillow? Thanks

    I would just get a sleep number pillow. I have one that is concave and you can adjust the firmness, wouldnt sleep without it.

    i am only 22, and I already hVe neck issues from playing college football, but the right pillow goes a long way.

    i would never order one online. Go in he store and try them all out first 
  • We have a my pillow, it's comfortable. Pillows are hard to judge from the box.  You don't know until you actually sleep on it. Since the my pillow is fairly inexpensive it's not a big risk to get one 
  • I have one and love it...

    My chiropractor sold me on a "Chiroflow" or "Mediflow" pillow.  They're about $30-40 on Amazon or Blinq.  It's a cotton pillow but there's a water bladder in the bottom.  The weight of you head pushes on the water bladder which forms around your neck.  You fill it with however much water you like for firmness, squeeze the air out, then seal the hole.  I'm running 100 oz. of water in mine, my wife has what the doc recommended, 110 oz.  They want you to change the water out once a year and add a drop of bleach if it's well water.   So far so good, and the doc said he's had his for four years now.

    Yes! It's funny you should ask. It is the most incredible pillow I have ever owned.

    As odd as it may sound, it is both firm, yet very soft. There is an approx 1 week learning curved with this pillow, so don't give up on it after just a day or two.

    When you first get it, you'll need to 'activate' it by putting it in the dryer with a small wet towel for about 20 minutes.

    In the future, 5 minutes or so (with a small wet hand towel) will puff it up again.

    I just bought my fourth, for me they last about 2 years then start to lose the magic.

    What I have experienced with this amazing pillow is a deep REM sleep. My dreams are SO vivid and when I wake in the morning, I feel as if 'my batteries' have been fully charged.

    I recommend buying the 'green' tagged pillow, and if and when you buy, purchase it from online Target via Ebay or Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Don't pay more that $60 dollars for it.

    This pillow will change your life. I promise!

  • Thanks, I'll start looking at all suggestions. 
  • I have tried the firm and medium pillows from MyPillow and I feel that they are too firm for me.

    I have tried the firm and medium pillows from MyPillow and I feel that they are too firm for me.
    The 'firm' is for the bodybuilder or wide shouldered individual, the green (medium) is for a 200 lb man and the white pillow is for someone 180lbs or less. I've done alot of research on this ...

    Let me give you a different point of a view as a firefighter. I have a sleep over with men and women every third day and I can say that anyone who snores is an ****! I'm a light sleeper and I cant stand it! It drives me insane. We usually throw full toilet paper rolls at those **** in the dark.

    Yep thanks. Can't wait to finally get good sleep. 
  • @SoCalTim if I'm about 155lbs still go with the green? 
  • They are amazing. I have a premium and love it for the last 2 years. You can wash them every month or two. If you have a store close by stop and they will help custom fit you. They are always on sale and would not pay more than 50% off normal price. Customer service is wonderful and Hassel free returns or exchanges in 60 days. Sleeping position and mattress firmness makes a difference on what size you buy.
