I am a 30 year old side sleeper, and I frequently wake up with neck pain that turns into a stiff neck. This neck pain can continue for days or even weeks, and about 6 months ago I finally decided I had to do something about it. I first tried the traditional tempurpedic neck pillow. The neck support is great, but it is so firm that I wake up in the middle of the night with ear pain from my ear being squashed up against my head. I tried a cheaper brand of memory foam neck pillow with similar results. Next I tried a high end department store down pillow. It felt great when I first laid down, and I fell asleep easily. However, it would flatten out in the night and I would wake up with my neck at a funny angle which led to more neck pain. Next I tried an expensive, advertises-on-late-night-tv brand of down alternative pillow with baffles. It seemed to have decent support while still being soft enough against my ear. I was happy for about a week until it started flattening out. I was nearing the end of my wits and my budget at this point!

I finally stumbled across Brookestone's biosense memory foam pillows, and I decided to order both the shoulder pillow and the neck pillow. I was a little skeptical about the curved shape of this pillow, I thought it sounded kind of gimicky, and wasn't likely to add anything to the comfort of the pillow. I thought I might need the neck pillow shape recommended for back sleepers in order to get the proper support. I am happy to say that this shoulder pillow exceeded my expectations! This is truly the best pillow I have ever used. It is supportive, soft and amazing. I really do think that their down alternative is better than down. It is soft, almost springy feeling, and doesn't flatten out the way down does. I sleep much better having the layer of softness against my face. The memory foam middle really does provide great support. The contour around the shoulder actually provides support for my shoulder, which I didn't even know I was missing! Plus, it feels nice to be able to sort of smoosh your shoulder up into the pillow. You can't really do that with the neck pillow, or a traditionally shaped memory foam pillow. When I first started using the pillow, I thought it felt a little tall, and I was nervous about it. However, within 2 nights my neck pain was gone, and I haven't had a stiff neck since! I have been using this pillow for about a month now. I really love this pillow, and will probably buy a back up for when this one wears out.

The biosense neck pillow is also nice, but definitely better for back sleeping. I do occasionally sleep on my back and it feels great for that. It isn't as comfortable as the shoulder pillow for side sleeping. It seems a little bit taller and firmer imo, and you don't get the shoulder support. So to answer my own question, yes....they really do know what they are talking about when they recommend the shoulder pillow for side sleepers. Highly recommended!

I purchased 2 pillows, one for me and my girlfriend. I have been using it for the last week and I sleep well on it, although it is not as comfortable as I thought it would be. I wish it was a bit softer. I have to press down with my head on the pillow to get it to sink in a bit lower. My girlfriend says she tried to sleep on it but her head sits too high on it and it hurts her neck. She says it is way too firm and it is only good for watching TV and use as a support. (She also removed the plastic and now she is unable to return it) Other than it being a bit firm for myself the design and quality definitely seem up to snuff - no problems there. Overall I say it's a decent pillow, I'm hoping it will soften up a bit in time. I knocked a star off because the firm issue and took another star off because it may not be for everyone (like my girlfriend). Try to go to a Brookstone store as opposed to buying online so you can feel if this will be the right pillow for you.

    Comments about BioSense® Memory Foam Shoulder Pillow with Better Than Down® Cover:

    This is our 3rd BioSense pillow. They're perfect for my husband and myself. The pillow is supposed to have a washable cover and it does wash, but it balls up and clumps so after repeated washings (head sweater) we must replace the pillow entirely. To us these pillows are worth the price and we will continue to buy BioSense pillows.

    Comments about BioSense® Memory Foam Shoulder Pillow with Better Than Down® Cover:

    I can't recommend this product. As a side sleeper and occasional snorer, I like the concept a lot, but the execution is poor.

    I'm a large, relatively broad shouldered guy and I find this pillow too thick for side sleeping. Using it creates a soreness in my neck due to being inclined, which is probably worse than the issue it proposes to solve. It's also very firm which exacerbates the problem.

    Also, the "better than down" cover loses shape badly. The filling bunches up severely, especially if you wash it, leaving the pillow lumpy and unusable. Today I use the pillow as a very overpriced throw.

    I suggest you look elsewhere.

            I bought these as a holiday gifts for my husband and daughter and they LOVED them. Both are pretty choosey about their pillows and they could not be happier. I think it was the first time my husband actually got eight hours of sleep in one night.

            This is a thick, firm pillow - which is exactly what I prefer. Therefore, it is very comfortable for sleeping for me. If you prefer softer, fluffier pillows - this is not for you! My one complaint regards the pillow cover that surrounds the memory foam. Over time, the stuffing shifts around in it. The stuffing is bunched together in some spots and bare in some spots. I've tried using my hands to shift the stuffing back in place, washing it, drying it, shaking it - little or no success. So this pillow is not good for long term, as the lumpy, uneven stuffing is not comfortable anymore. Any suggestions Brookstone???

              Comments about BioSense® Memory Foam Shoulder Pillow with Better Than Down® Cover:

              I was skeptical about this product as I am really fussy about pillows, but I gave it a try and couldn't be happier. It keeps its shape all night! I hate when pillows go flat or don't offer any support. It has helped my neck and shoulder pain and I don't wake up so many times during the night.

              My husband got one after me, and also loves it.

              It took me a couple days to get used to it, as it doesn't feel quite like a standard pillow, but now I love it. Give it a couple days to get used to the new feel.

              It is very supportive, so if you like a really fluffy down like pillows it may not be for you. Also, it falls somewhere in between the thickness of 1-2 standard pillows. I ususally sleep with 2 pillows, so had no problem conforming to this pillow height, but if you are used to using one small pillow it may be to high.
