Took a few days to get used to but now is perfect!
Bought the pillow from Pillow Talk as it came highly recommended. Initially had a rough sleep but by the 3rd night it was wonderful! Used it for a few months now.
The amount of money I’ve spent on pillows in the last few years is ridiculous! I had high hopes for this one but unfortunately another expensive on that didn’t deliver. Feels different to the demo one, really hard. Plus the smell is pretty unbearable. Wish I read the reviews first
Disappointed cost a fortune
The pillow is comfortable but it does have a horrible bad smell to it. I paid $130 for it at Pillow Talk they told me it’s a very good pillow.
Purchased in August 2020 at Pillow Talk Burleigh for A$130.00.
Sadly not a match for me
Not for smaller frames like myself (I'm 163cm), gave it a good few months to get use to it but it's too hard for me, and I kept waking up with shoulder and neck pain and headaches. Sadly a waste of money even though I got it on sale at Myer.
Perfect I cannot live without it
Side sleeper and cannot sleep without my Medi Rest. From day one too.
Chiropractor recommend as I had a really bad neck problem and bad headaches at the time.
Helped immensely at the time and it is ike sleeping on a cloud
And my new one defiantly doesn't smell and is thes ame shape etc as the last 2 I've had. (Previous reviews?)
One my third now. About 12-13 years
Some people need to persist with it. It took my sister took 2 weeks to get used to it and she can't sleep without it either. My daughter uses one too.
Dissapointed, it’s terrible
I found the pillow to be very hard (not like demo in shop) I’ve used it for two and a half hours and I have massive pain up my neck and a headache. The pillow has a strong chemical smell. I’ve gone back to my old memory foam pillow. Very Very disappointed.
Why change something that was perfect?
Have been using this pillow for 10 years. However have recently bought another new one, and the shape has changed it now has two curved indents on both sides of pillow and all their pillows including medium profile and high profile which I used to like now have an unbearable chemical smell that is hard to tolerate when sleeping on the pillow. Even after washing the pillow the smell remained. Have had to throw them away and wasted my money, Denton’s why did you change your pillow. They were perfect they way they were, now I won’t buy another one.

Perfect for me - and been using for 7 years
I just love this pillow. I am a side sleeper, and for me, it is just perfect. I love the firmness, and I love how my neck feels fully supported. I love the grooves too that seem to allow air flow. I never feel hot on this pillow. I sleep very soundly on it. My husband also has the same pillow. First purchased in 2010, we have just replaced both pillows - 7 years later! At that time I'm sure they were not quite as firm as originally, though I more replaced them because they were 7 years old, and I found them on sale, and it seemed I shou...ld replace 7 year old pillows. I didn't throw the old ones away either - I'm trying to work out how to take mine travelling. It's quite bulky so not sure how to manage it. I recently slept on a hotel pillow and had an awful time, so I want to explore this option. First version purchased in 2010 at Myer half price at around $50, replacement at Harris Scarfe online December 2017 at the same price. On the basis of our experience over 7 years I simply cannot recommend this pillow highly enough.
Loved that pillow.
This pillow is so comfy i got used to it from the first night, i read some good and bad reviews but i decided to give it a go as it was $50 from spotlight and now even my 5 years old fighting with me to have it as he tried it and he said "mum it's much better than my pillow"
Since becoming pregnant I could not get comfy on my usual side sleeper pillow. In the space of 2 weeks I spent $600 on pillows, a wide range some cheap some $240. 2 tempur memory foam pillow/a body pillow/a target pillow/a wool pillow.
All of them gave me such a sore neck I was having to go for massages and had daily headaches. The bed sales lady in myer recommended the medirest as she loved it and I have never looked back since buying it. I think it took 2 nights or so to get used to it but my $600 worth of pillows sits in the corner and the ...

Why people say it's a good pillow?
Not a good pillow. Bought it based on the review on the internet but regret it.
The memory foam inside feels very cheap (I have Dentons Impressions infinity and Therapillo High profile pillow so I know what good memory foam feels like) but at least it is not an expensive pillow.
It is little higher and firmer than Dentons Imressions Infinity pillow (which I find it too cushy and low for a medium profile).
I still get a sore neck and back. I find the contour isn't comfortable since it is a little too deep.
The 'Physio approved' and 'Medi' is just a marketing term used on an ordinary pillow. Nothing is special at all with this pillow.
And also as for the other reviewer said about this pillow feeling like a brick, it isn't true.
best pillow for neck pain
I had tried so many pillows including most recent Denton High profile, but no one is like Medi rest, though High profile looks pretty similar but I got more stiffness in my neck after using it so I got back to my Medi rest, even I have took it with me to my holidays, can get on special from Myer aprox $56.
We've all got one
I've had this pillow for 2 years and it's really helped my neck and back problems, especially as a side sleeper. My wife has recently been taking my dentons pillow, and now I have had to buy one for her as well. The quality of this pillow is better than the other 'memory pillows' available on the market, which I have tried and are too 'malleable' and don't hold their structure. You must pay for quality if you want a quality nights sleep.
I am so relieved.
This pillow stopped me snoring, I will never go back to feather or polyester pillows! I'm 50 kilo female this pillow is comfortable I was concerned it would be hard to adjust or too firm for me, but after the first night I felt more rested and have been happy so far for a month. I sell pillows and beds, I thought I should try this pillow even though its not my company's brand, because of customer feedback and its popularity. I'm relieved it was money very well spent.
Questions & Answers
I am getting a rash really bad on the side I sleep on. I have changed to the other side sometimes during the night and am also getting rash now on that side. Why
Just bought a Denton medi rest pillow and have used it for 1 night... however the thing has a horrible stink to it. I thought it would go away after airing out of its packet but it still smells like some chemical or like dank mould. Should I just return it?
I get terrible headaches - always at night or on waking - would this pillow be of help? I am desperate.
This pillow has fantastic neck support and the brand make various shapes to choose from depending on whether you are big or small and the position you sleep in - back, side etc. I can sleep on a hard bed as long as I have my pillow with me as I believe this makes all the difference. It could help your headaches, I never had this problem I bought these pillows for us as I hate pillows that you have to fluff up or as soon as you put your head on them they lose their shape.
