Which is better for neck pain? I trying to decide whether to purchase the traditional or contoured iso-cool pillow. Some people have complained that the contoured pillow is to high/thick at the neck and that concerns me. This will be my third attempt in the last two months at buying a pillow that will be comfortable and relieve my neck pain/stiffness. Anybody have advice on this for me?

i have the side sleeper, my husband has the contour version of this pillow. the side sleeper is made of a dense foam that is very supportive. it's relieved my neck pain. my husbands pillow is made out of a lighter foam, and not as supportive, in my opinion, but my husband seems to like it.
Thanks, Karen. I ended up buying both to try them out and found I really love the side sleeper too. I returned the contour pillow. My neck is so much better too and I find myself not wanting to leave my pillow in the morning!
The Iso Cool pillow has a low side and a high side with the contour in the middle. It also has a flat side without the cradle for your neck. I have a bad disc in my neck and I stay pain free by sleeping on this pillow on the contoured side where it cradles my nick. The low side may feel high when it's new but it will soften a bit as you use it. Doesn't feel high to me at any time but I'm used to sleeping on these pillows.
