Rated 2 out of 5 by 6463 overstuffed, too firm
I expected a side sleeper pillow to be softer and less densely filled. It would make an excellent pillow fir a sham.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tea42 Side Sleeper Pillow
I bought the medium density pillow which I love, love, love!! I had been alternating between a Tempurpedic pillow, which was too hard, and a Down pillow, which I liked, but was too soft. This pillow is somewhere in between, not too soft and not too hard. I find it very comfortable and have been sleeping great since I started using it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 20sqmilesnochoices Hard as a rock
This pillow is labeled medium firm, but harder would be granite itself. I only lasted 1 and a half nights--no sleep at all. Pillows are totally personal and I'm having trouble finding one. This isn't it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katefromcherryhill Up from 4 to 5 stars
Happy to send his, it's been a couple weeks since prior rating,and all the good things remain true., BUT something got better. My neck still does not hurt and the pillow seems to be housebroken. No longer too hard & not too soft, itis just right so I am increasing my stars to five.
Really enjoy doing this b/c I take the reviews seriously & I think most people do also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by katefromcherryhill a four star pillow
My neck has not hurt since I got this pillow.
It is much firmer than I expected.
Had read reviews & lots of folks mentioned it's "firmness", I thought it would soften up in a few days. That has not happened.
However, it has stopped my long term pain in neck & shoulder.
So, four stars & zero Chiropratic sessions.. I got most of what I wished for.

We were very hopeful that these pillows would work out based upon the reviews. Unfortunately, we were very let down. The firmness went away quickly, and we are left to sleep on what seems to be mashed potatoes in a pillow case. No support at all. These will be returned to LL Bean.

The pillow is well made but is too dense, too high when sleeping. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hohocleveland Finally have a pillow that's just right
A side sleeper, I've alternated between a down pillow and a tempurpedic pillow for the past 10 years. It finally dawned on me that my longstanding nightly congestion might be due to an allergy to both down and memory foam. First I tried an LLB down alternative damask pillow but it just didn't feel right.
I decided to try this side sleeper version in medium. From the first night I've slept soundly on it. And I no longer have any congestion. The pillow feels a little dense at first but quickly softens a bit and is very, very comfortable, including the occasional times I sleep on my back. I'd caution against choosing the firm unless you have a really heavy head!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanflint18 Nice quality, perfect amount of support
I am pleased with the overall quality of this pillow, and the medium is perfect. I'm glad I read the other reviews because it did take week or so of use to soften up, or "break in", the pillows. Very comfortable for side sleepers; they are soft yet give the head support, and they fit my standard LL Bean pillowcases.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Escapeducks For thise who have allergies to Down
I love all of LL Bean Beddings, but these pillows have caused me
Allot of very grief.
We have had these in the past three weeks, they are beautiful, medium is firm ...and such quailty.
BUT... I am so senstive to Down... And in the past three weeks I have woke up with eyes the size of golf balls, and suffered all day with watery eyes and a mess. My husband said, since we bought these pillows your a mess. So in the past three days I have put our old ones back on the bed, and I wake up with the face I went to bed with.
There has to be down in these, I am so disapointed, as these pillows are so comfortable.
So sorry I have to post...but I wish I seen a review before I purchase, for those who have allergies. I would not recommend.
They will go in one of the guest bed rooms.
