Reduces neck pain
I have tried multiple pillows over the last few months after my neck and back pain worsened, including dunlopillo and feather. Nothing helped.
I received my TLC classic pillow yesterday and honestly had the best night sleep and pain free this morning.
I have purchased the TLC classic plus today as a companion.

Best pillows and best service
If you want quality latex pillows then buy from www.tlclatexpillows.com.au. I have tried three different types from TLC and love them all.
In the past I have bought different brands of expensive and cheap latex pillows. I have two, which are 16 years old, that I tried to repurchase, but could not find the company. So I tried to find something similar or better, and I found better at TLC.
I sleep more comfortably and for longer periods than I have done in the past with any other pillow. I like the medium softness. I am an every position slee...per; back, side and tummy so I had to find a pillow to accommodate all positions. How did I choose which ones to buy? They have a "Compare All Pillows At A Glance" page, which shows LENGTH CM, DEPTH CM, HEIGHT CM, DENSITY. I wanted pillows that fitted a standard sized pillowcase so I had three to choose from and decided to purchase all three. My favourite is the TLC Classic Plus. These also come in a cheaper 2 pack. The primary reason I bought from TLC was this comment I found on Oz Bargain:

A beautiful pillow - highly recommended
This pillow was described as soft and supportive and it is exactly that. Just beautiful. I only wish I had bought one sooner. No more thrashing around at night and no more neck pain. Perfection.

Great Fit! Very nice.
I bought the TLC Classic Plus pillow (2 pk). Delivery was very quick. The pillows are large and fit a Queen bed really nicely, and fill out a standard pillowcase. The pillows are heavy, which means they don't slide around in the bed! Bonus! They had no smell, and we've both found them to be a great comfortable pillow after 6mth use.

Best sleep we’ve ever had!
We have been using the Classic Plus pillows for a month now - we are sleeping so well and waking up feeling rested & refreshed every morning. Both my husband and I have had neck/shoulder problems this year but since we started sleeping on the TLC pillows we haven’t had any issues! Absolutely love them and would recommend them to anyone & everyone.

The first time i used it i could sort of feel that my neck wasnt supported and it made me realise why some other pillows have that arch bit for the neck, but i stuck with it hoping to get used to it but i just ended up with a really sore neck and constant headache at the back of my head for weeks, switched back to my old pillows and i was back to normal after 2 nights. Missed the test period so now ive got 2 expensive pillows just sitting there. Well thats my experience anyway, peace

This is my second purchase from TLC. I've always used latex pillows and I initially bought the Classic (about 3 years ago) in the standard size....which was 60cms wide. I just assumed all pillows were the same width and didn't bother measuring, so my mistake. I've since discovered that 70cms is a more generous width, and the size I was more accustomed to....so do your homework!
I've just upgraded, as I've had a nagging shoulder injury for some time, and I found that I now need a slightly higher, more supportive pillow. After discussing my...

Like sleeping on clouds
I usually suffer from headaches, shoulder and neck pain, which made me spend a fortune trying out different pillow brands (I have a closet-full of pillows from companies with no return/exchange policy -- what a bummer). I'm happy to say I found the pillow I am looking for: The TLC Classic. It supports my neck and head perfectly, and it's so soft I feel like I'm sleeping on clouds every night. It wasn't a straightforward love story, mind you... good thing Tim from TLC helped me sort out which of the TLC pillows I should get. Great customer service, very responsive, and the deliveries were fast!

I purchased the medium latex pillow, and I find it comfortable and supportive. In regards to a previous review, its not ideal to use to sit in bed with and lean up against, I use other pillows for that purpose, but for sleeping on, its perfect and helps with my neck pain.
Purchased at Online for $90.00.
I have struggled for ages with neck and shoulder tension and pain that results in waking up with a headache many mornings. Worst way to start the day. Since ordering the high & soft pillow this has really improved, fingers crossed it continues. The pillow also feels really plush and is extremely comfortable and cosy, unlike other neck/shoulder support pillows that I've been recommended in the past. There was a slight latex-y smell when I first unpackaged my pillow, but it faded away by the time I went to bed that day. Appreciate the free shipping and love to support Australian businesses. Thanks TLC.

Quality high, but be wary
I bought on the reputation of the company and these reviews. Don't doubt quality or good faith of TLC, but the pillows are light and blubbery. Not really usable even as props for reading, as they just sink against the hard back board. Don't get the point of them as they offer no more support than cheap poly "firm" pillows from a supermarket, though they'll obvious last years longer.
Explanations were given, return was offered but return on bulky items not worth expense so I'm keeping for guests. It's back to the buckwheat or the old latex I was hoping to replace.

Low therapuetic pillow TOO HOT.
Disappointed with my purchase. This latex is far too hot for Queensland weather. It is very comfortable. However, within minutes, I have to push it to the side- as it heats up very quickly. Good for cold countries.
Fantastic customer service! After spending 6 months with a classic pillow (which was very comfortable by the way) I had a physio recommend a lower pillow. So I ordered the firm only to realise this one didn't quite suit me either (my own fault.) Amazingly Tim and Amanda were kind enough to offer to swap the pillow over despite a promotional discount AND I received the new one same day. The Therapeutic is amazing and I couldn't be happier.
Unbelieveable Customer Service
Where do I start? After months and months of time, sore necks and many dollars spent trying to find a pillow to replace my last latex pillow (that I had for 8 years)...finally a blissful night of sleep. I would defintely fall into the category of 'very particular' about what I was looking for in a pillow, and any other company would have given up helping me....but not TLC. Amanda has been so patient, helpful and understanding. She was so authentic in her care and interest in actually making sure I was happy, going over and above to swap my ...inital purchase (The Classic) over to The Bigger. She endured many an email, of me asking a number of questions because I was so nervous about wasting more money on pillows that just were not right. So for anyone who might be hesitant about buying a pillow online without being able to try it....please rest assured that Amanda and TLC will be with you every step of the way. They not only care about the quality of their product, but they absolutely care about you and your needs. So rare these days. I love my new pillow (amazing quality and now the perfect fit) and would have given TLC more than 5 stars, had that been an option.
Absolutely dreamy sleep
Second time I've bought from this company & oh what a joy both times. Superb customer service (they arrived 2 days after my order, complete with a phone call & sms to say they had arrived (I was @ work).
I ordered the BIG this time around (last time was 5+ yrs ago & my then puppy destroyed one of 2 I'd ordered, the last one was slightly higher/denser.
I've waited 3 wks this time to write a review to ensure the quality is as good, & indeed it is!
I suffer severe migraines & to drop onto the soft Latex pillow is so helpful, which is why I'm writing this review. Have tried soft polyester/featherlatex, but these pillows are the absolute best!!
Do not hesitate, the others are imitations & you do get what you pay for.
Questions & Answers
is the classic pillow good for side and back sleepers both? I turn around a bit but mostly sleep on the side.
Our TLC THE CLASSIC is okay for side and back sleepers, but THE CLASSIC PLUS is better. For side sleepers, both are good - but when sleeping on your back THE CLASSIC PLUS is just that little bit lower and marginally softer, so will better keep your neck and back in alignment while providing the required support and more comfort.
Thanks, I assumed so had ordered 2 classic plus last night. Fingers crossed!
Hi guys, l get the impression that l have to pay to return the item if not happy with it?
Is this correct and if so what am l likely to be up for if l in Melbourne?
Hi Lou - if the pillow is faulty in any way or not as described, we refund the return postage. If it is simply doesn't suit and you want to exchange or refund, you pay the return postage. Remember, it is free postage to get it to you in the first place - and if you exchange we deliver free again. Return will cost you $15.35, normal post, no signature required.
Cool....thanks for the reply.
Hi, I'm currently using a Sleepmaker Classic Memory Foam pillow which I am very happy with. It has a zip off soft cover and inside that there is a yellow type foam with little breather holes close together in rows about an inch apart. It looks about 8 or 9cm thick. Do you have anything that could be similar? This Sleepmaker is retailing for $199 in Harvey Norman which I am happy to pay, but I refuse to shop at my local store because their customer service has been apalling with a stove and dishwasher that I have had troubles with. Many thanks, Linde
Hi Linde. The short answer is no - we don't have anything similar. Memory foam is made from visco polyurethane (an oil derivative), while all our pillows are made from natural latex (from rubber trees). There is a big difference in feel. Memory foam slowly sinks inwards with the weight of your head and cradles it, then slowly recovers. Talalay process latex is softer, but pushes outwards - providing better comfort and the required support. We have one 'memory foam one side and latex on the other' in our range, but it will feel firmer than your Sleepmaker pillow. Hope this helps! Tim from TLC.

- The main selling point of this pillow is that it’s made from Talalay latex. This refers to a method of making latex that involves only filling up moulds part-way with latex. This gives the pillow an airy structure that is designed to make it more breathable for hot sleepers.
- Available in either a ‘traditional’ (standard) size or large size. The large option is taller, which provides extra neck support for side sleepers.
- The naturally hypoallergenic material of natural latex makes the TLC Latex Classic friendly for sleepers with allergies. Antimicrobial qualities allow the pillow to remain hygienic for longer.
- This pillow is made with a 14cm density, which can be described as a medium to high profile design.
- A zip-off cotton cover can be removed for easy washing.
Points of Praise
- This latex pillow effectively relieved neck pain for quite a few reviewers, as well as shoulder pain for other reviewers. Both of these positive effects were greatly appreciated as contributing to a restful night's sleep.
- Described as both soft and supportive, more than one reviewer happily wrote that using this pillow was like sleeping on a cloud.
- TLC offers great customer service, in the opinion of several reviewers.
- Several reviewers reported that after unpackaging this pillow they noticed that it didn't have the smell that sometimes accompanies synthetic latex products, due to an off-gassing effect.
