Rated 3 out of 5 by MarlboroughMom Overstuffed
This pillow seems to be a bit too big, and has too much stuffing in it too. It would not fit in my LLBean flannel pillow cases (which have been washed lots of times) - we had to jam them in. Would be a great pillow for someone wanting more firmness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by greydog1 really firm
this item is exactly as described by llbean - it is very firm. I returned it for the medium and will re post when I receive it. i'm a side sleeper - but perhaps i'm not broad enough to have this fit my neck profile. if you like a high, quality pillow that is stiff - this is your pillow. i'm hoping the medium has a little more give...but not too much. an endless quest...

Rated 4 out of 5 by merrymac Side Sleeper Pillow
I was disappointed with this pillow and returned it. Being a slde sleeper I was looking forward to LLBean's take on a pillow designd for me and others like me. Most pillows I have purchased in the past for side sleepers were relatively flat.
I sleep n my side and my stomach and am used to a relatively flat, gusseted pillow.
LLbean's pillow is very full and very firm. .
I tried it but it held my head and neck too high and was not comfortable..
If it had been less expensive I would have kept it for guests.

Rated 3 out of 5 by llbeanergirl la little too firm
For some reason I thought this pillow was queensize, but the real issue it is way too firm. Like to read in bed, but when sleeping it became to uncomfortable for me. I think I will return it and maybe will try medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by norwich Wonderful pillow!
This wonderful pillow is just what I wanted. I normally would buy a "firm" version, but the "medium" is firm enough for me.

This pillow replaces old pillows that I should have replaced long ago. I love it. Your head sinks into it a bit, but is still supported (doesn't compress it to the level of the mattress.) My ears feel fine, too. Don't hesitate to try it for yourself, I doubt you'll be disappointed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LThomassen Ouch! Medium Firm is Extra Firm in my book.
It's hard to buy a new pillow and every reviewer will differ on how they feel about the same pillow but I'll throw my two cents in anyway since no one has reviewed this.
The pillow in the picture for the medium firm pillow seems to be relatively flat but fluffy.
In fact, the pillow is very puffy and was a tight fit inside my standard pillow case. I've slept on it two nights so far and have to keep switching sides all night long because it's so firm it actually hurts my ears so I have to keep flip flopping to give the currently squished ear a break.
I'm not going to the trouble of sending it back but I would not purchase this again.
If you you like super fluffy pillows with very little give, this is the one for you! I'm so glad the FIRM one was out of stock. I can't imagine how hard that one would be!
