Helps With Back Pain,
This review is from: Embrace Memory Foam Body Pillow from Sleep Innovations (Misc.)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I suffer from bulging discs in my lower back which causes me a great deal of pain. I have gone through physical therapy and I'm getting ready to go to pain management. This body pillow does help alleviate some of the pain and pressure in my lower back. It will contour to your body. I placed the pillow on the couch and then laid directly on top of it with my back facing it. It was the best feeling that I've had in a long time. It is so comfortable. You immediately get that relaxed feeling! The memory foam had me in a state of euphoria. The pillow is rather large and a little heavy to carry around. I'm 5 feet 1 inch and the pillow is just about as big as me! It comes with a pillow case. The gel-infused memory foam pillow is actually inside an outer layer (fabric cover) that looks a little something like one of those removable pillow top mattresses. The outer layer that encloses the pillow actually zips up and the pillow case goes over the top of that. The pillow does come with a 5 year limited warranty which covers the fabric cover and the foam material and severe body contours. There is information in the package that goes over all of that. The following information that I have provided below is from the Sleep Innovations paperwork that came with the pillow. I wanted to include it because it may help you in making a purchase decision.
The actual pillow is filled with Memory Clusters and per Sleep Innovations, "they are a premium, non-allergenic fill designed to emulate the loft and softness of natural goose down. And just like natural down Memory Clusters have a tendency to settle over time. In order for you to experience all the benefits of your new pillow, we recommend you fluff the pillow before your first night, and every few nights after. This helps your pillow keep its original shape and allows it to provide years of deep comfort and lasting support." Sleep Innovations also state the following, "Gel-infused memory foam is sensitive to temperature. When exposed to colder climates, your pillow will become firmer. Please allow at least 24-48 hours for your new pillow to renew its feel once placed in room temperature. Sleeping on your pillow before it warms to room temperature will not damage it. Your body heat will help the foam to soften." You can find more information at their website.
Overall, I'm quite happy with the pillow!
Pros: Low maintenance, pillow case and fabric cover are washable, contours to the body really well, made with breathable material and is inexpensive.
Cons: Rather large, a little bulky and heavy to carry around.
Will I recommend it? Most definitely!

You say this pillow is sensitive to temperature, in the paperwork you recieved, does it hold body temperature? My husband is hot by nature and I don't want him complaining that it makes him roast in the night, it will wake him through the night. That would just not due. It sounds like the body pillow my brother let me use when I stayed with him. I loved that body pillow, but it did keep me warm. I want a similar pillow for him, just not one that holds your body temperature through the night.

This particular pillow doesn't hold my body heat. It's pretty cool. I sweat very easily and I don't have that problem while laying on this pillow.
