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:

    We waited to buy this pillow, because I balked at the price tag. But I've been having a lot of problems with worsening migraines, increased snoring, and hands falling asleep while I was lying down, so I knew I had to upgrade. Best decision EVER. Snoring has stopped, hands don't fall asleep, and haven't had a severe migraine since I started using this pillow.

    My only con is that it's too firm for me, but I don't know if the pillow would be as helpful if it were less firm, so I'm dealing with it, lol. (I have "military neck", so I don't know if that is contributing to the problem for me.)

    My husband is having similar good results with the Brookstone BioSense Classic Pillow; if you aren't a side sleeper, try this one!

            Bought this pillow for hubby because the down he was using got too flat. I was excited to try this pillow based on the hype. The first night my husband used the pillow i looked over and he was sound asleep but the pillow was thrown off to the side of the bed. I was disappointed because he was not comfortable and the pillow cost a lot. Needless to say after two tries he wanted his old pillow back. I decided to give it a go and honestly the pillow is way too hard. You feel like your head is way too high which would result in a stiff neck in the morning. I tried it a few more times in case it needed breaking in but each time i had to give up and throw it to the floor. Now I'm using it to prop myself up to watch tv then discard to sleep. Even using it to watch tv is not comfortable. I do not recommend this pillow at all. It is a shame because when you touch it it feels so soft however the insert is too hard.

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

                This pillow is far too firm and thick that it was difficult to find a comfortable position. Worse yet, I don't think it's really memory foam...it's JUST foam. Really hard foam, at that. I could not get the foam to sink down by just laying on it.. I tried squeezing it with my hands and its just rebounded back instantaneously without any "memory." Sadly, I removed the plastic so I was unable to return it, although truthfully I think they should have still taken the return for false advertising. The one good thing about this pillow is that the cover is very soft. When I take the pillow out of the cover and then just place the cover on top of the pillow, I find that it makes the pillow feel slightly less firm so that it is tolerable but I still deeply regret this purchase.

                  I have neck problems resulting from an injury I sustained a few years back. As a side sleeper who likes down pillows, it has been difficult to find something that was soft enough for me to comfortably sleep on yet supportive enough that I don't wake up with neck pain. I cannot sleep on hard pillows, and was a little skeptical when my husband bought me this. Boy, was I surprised when I actually tried this pillow! Finally, I have found something that works. It is the perfect combination of softness and support, and the contour allows me to snuggle into it like my down pillows used to. I have not woken up with neck pain since switching to this pillow. I highly recommend it!

                  I have searched for years for the perfect side sleeper pillow. I have tried dozens including the MyPillow but nothing hit the mark. I got this recently as a gift and it is without a doubt the best, most supportive and comfortable pillow I have ever had. The notch in the pillow is perfect for side sleepers. It stays very cool during the night and provides real support without being too firm. Highly recommend!
