Not so Comfortable
I have been using contour pillows for 15 years and always had memory foam.
I decided to give this a go against my better judgement.
It feels like you are sleeping on a rolled up towel. I've had consistent headaches since using this pillow. Its horrid.
If you suffer from neck pain or headaches this pillow will make it worse.
Don't give up on it straight away. Great pillow and value.
I bought this recently as I had a neck injury from the gym and was intending to get a new pillow anyway. I am a side sleeper and occasional back sleeper. I purchased the pillow after reading these reviews. At first it felt a bit firm and high but with any new pillow you need to persist until you adapt to it. By the third night I was converted, I am sleeping really really well and according to my partner I am not snoring and my breathing sounds a lot healthier. It can be turned around depending on how large your frame is. I am a largish frame - 187cm, 90kgs and I prefer the lower side. The pillow feels a bit softer than when purchased which is good. Would highly recommend this.
At last, a good night's sleep
I had tried many pillows and been unable to find one to suit but was always waking with a stiff neck or pain. From the moment I bought the Medi Rest things changed. It took a couple of sleeps to get used to (maybe because I was unfamiliar with the firm feeling) but I have finally found "the one". I have gone from waking several times during the night to sleeping all the way through. I love putting my head on this pillow every night. I don't usually write reviews but if there's anyone out there who is tired of looking for a good pillow, give this one a try. I am a relatively small person 5'2" and 51kgs but the dual profiles accomodate most people. I find this pillow very, very comfortable.
Best anti snoring/ anti obstructing pillow
I bought this pillow specifically for my husband who snores and has sleep apnoea. He has used a dental device for the apnoea for many years which works well, but with the addition of this pillow there is virtually no snoring noise at all, as long as he keeps his shoulders in the special groove, and hence his head correctly supported in the middle of the pillow. I occasionally adjust his head while he is sleeping if it has migrated off centre! I have since bought one for myself (I use the lower profile side) and one for my son. The pillows a...re made of firm foam and hence keep their shape and keep the head well supported with airways free and open - they also take a bit of pressure off the shoulders when side sleeping. I bought at David Jones for the cheapest price. $69 I think. Worth the investment. Shoulder groove to keep head correctly positioned. Option of higher or lower profile on either side of pillow. Nothing
Does not deserve such a high rating
I bought this pillow after reviewing dozens of pillows on this site. This pillow was at the top of the list for popularity. 5 out of 5 stars from every reviewer. But I'm here to knock it down the list, it does not deserve to be at the top. This pillow is made from "Softec" foam and despite the name it is very firm. It is also a very high profile which it also does not say on the packaging, it claims to be a medium head height. For the last 2 nights I've been desperately trying to get comfortable on this pillow and kept telling myself it's a goo...d pillow, I just have to get used to it. But after getting such bad night's sleeps and waking up with a sore neck I finally handed it over to my husband. I'm 5 ft 4 and he is nearly 6 ft and has a larger than average frame and he found it to be too high and uncomfortable. The shoulder recess does not really seem to do anything special for this pillow. If you like firm pillows that are really high profile and do not mould to your head or move when you lie on it than this pillow will work for you. Otherwise I very much do not reccommend this pillow. Wrong information on packaging, much too firm, much too high, only made of foam, does not support head and neck.
Works quickly on sore backs and necks and stops headaches
My boyfriend ended up in hospital with severe migraines and after a week in the neuro ward, he left with no solution. A visit to the physio then put him onto this pillow and his migraine cleared up almost immediately. As a result my younger brother and a good friend of mine who also suffer from migraines and bad back/neck pain have bought this pillow and have also had their headaches clear up within days! The money saved on countless pain killers, hospital and doctors visits makes this pillow worth every cent! They are very comfy and last a long time. They sell these at Harris Scarfe and they ALWAYS seem to be having a sale - we picked up a few for around $50
High quality, very good control of headaches and back/neck pain
Love these pillows
We are on our 3rd set of Dentons pillows. Absolutely love them and have difficulty sleeping on anything else. They smell a bit when you first get them as they are latex, however if you leave them out in the sunshine and fresh air (not to hot though) for a day the smell goes. They don't collapse like other memory foam products and hold their shape for the life of the pillow. We use pillow protectors as well as the protector they come in and get a few years out of ours.
Once you have slept on one of these pillows you won't go back to anything else.
This pillow saved my neck!
Before buying this pillow I was using a very old Denton that served me well but I started developing neck pain and found that after buying this it almost instantly disappeared. Now I can sleep all night and not have a pain in my neck upon waking. It serves me very well because I am a side sleeper and hence need the larger profile to support my head and neck. The lower profile side is also comfortable when sleeping on my back.
All round winner!
A little pricey but worth it.
Awesome pillow, I would reccomend it to anyone. It's not the price I would have paid few years ago for a pillow but I have realised when it comes to your comfort and good rest, you shouldn't think about money.
We paid 95AUD for this pillow and my wife doesn't want to get out of the bed now. I tried it too and can say it is very supportive for neck and the foam moulds to the shape of your head.
None so far.
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.
