THE AVANA SLANT - A Safe & Natural Sleep Solution -- Science Meets Common Sense. To help control night time acid reflux you need to put gravity to work for you. Elevating the head alone won’t do the trick. The Avana Slant does what regular pillows can’t do. It works like a hospital bed to keep your whole torso gently elevated, providing the ideal comfort sleep surface. Especially recommended for discomfort associated with pregnancy, snoring, allergy relief, GERD and as a safe, natural help for nighttime acid reflux. The Slant is designed with a urethane foam foundation covered in a layer of body contouring memory foam, so that you get the perfect combination of comfort and support. A high-grade, form-fitting Bamboo-Rayon cover zips right off for washing.

The best feature for me is the width--and keep in mind that a "queen" is approximately half the size of a queen bed. Someone complained on another website because he thought a "king" meant that it was the size of a full king bed. The extra width on this wedge allows my arms to be supported and not just my torso. If you've tried to sleep with only pillows propping you up, you'll understand that your arms don't get supported--and that adds strain to your back.
I had read a review of an almost identical memory foam product where many liked it but some said it was rock hard. If you prefer a very soft mattress you may find the wedge hard, but if you like a firm mattress with a memory foam top, this should be great. I would point out for those who say it's "rock hard" that if the wedge were made of a softer foam, you wouldn't have the 7" rise that's necessary for controlling reflux because it would squish down under your weight.
My only problem with the product is not really the fault of the product: it is what it is. But I've had some trouble getting used to it and do find that I slide down it a bit and have to hitch myself up. It also takes some experimentation with and without pillows to find what's comfortable. I find that I don't need a pillow for my head when I'm on my back, but have to have one for my neck and shoulders when I'm on my side.
The most comfortable position I've found for myself is to lie on my back with a pillow under my head and another pillow right where the wedge ends under my tailbone. This lifts my thighs and takes pressure off my back and knees. It's like a poor man's version of being in an adjustable bed. Only problem is that I can't keep any position for very long and so end up putting a pillow on the floor by the end of the night.
I also sometimes just HAVE to sleep on my stomach and so flip the wedge up against the headboard. What's nice is that it actually stays in position and doesn't fall down on my head.
I probably should have said this first, but when the wedge arrives, it will be squished into a zippered black bag. I was quite doubtful about the product as it looked awful with the cover just hanging over this squished foam. It started to gain its shape after an hour or so and after perhaps 12 hours (the next day), it looked just like the picture with the cover fitting quite snugly around it.
All in all, I'm very pleased with this purchase--especially since I think I got the equivalent of the much more expensive wedges at a very reasonable price!
Edit/update: my doctor told me I probably shouldn't have a pillow under my head along with the wedge because it makes me bend my neck too much, so when on my back I don't use a pillow under my head but do put it under my thighs. Then when I roll to my side, I take the pillow from under my legs and use it under my head. (Yes, I sleep lightly enough that I can do this throughout the night.) And I'm much more used to the wedge now and sleep very well with it.
It comes in a nice nylon type carrying case and is compressed. It took a couple hours for it to fully expand. It has a nice fleece type zippered cover. There was very little of that new foam smell that you often get with foam bedding, even right out of the package. My husband slept on it the first night and didn't seem to notice any odor. It's made in the U.S. It took about 2 weeks after ordering for it to arrive, bit it was worth the wait. My husband tells me it works great to eliminate the acid reflux.
Update 9/4/15 - My husband is still sleeping on this every night and is still happy with it. It has compressed a bit in the center were his shoulders rest, but not more than I would have expected with memory foam. It still offers good support and keeps stomach acid from flowing into his esophagus during the night. The main thing is that it's comfortable. He uses a memory foam pillow on top of it and usually sleeps on his side. I am probably going to order one for myself and another family member in this same size.
