John Lewis New Microfibre and Memory Foam Standard Pillow
Loses shape after few months
Purchased 2 of these pillows after reading the other review. At first was happy with pillows as the memory foam offered the support needed. Unfortunately now after around 8 months of alternate use the memory foam is too soft which results in waking with headache and neck pain. Back to the drawing board I guess for another solution.

Finally, Goldilocks finds a "just right" pillow
I have never written an online review, but I felt I must for this pillow. I have been an on/off insomniac my whole life, so have spent a lot of time researching and spending a fortune on pillows which still aren't right
Memory foam is too hard for me (like sleeping on a brick, and gives me a headache), feather and microfibre too soft, unless I have two, and then they're too high... you get the picture.
This pillow is the perfect combination - the benefit of memory foam for support, and the softness of microfibre. My head sinks in but is fully supported. It is the perfect height, no other pillow required. I am actually falling straight to sleep for one of the first times in my life.
You can even turn it over and have the memory foam underneath, to have a softer pillow, but I like the support of the foam side.
Not too hot, not too cold, It is SOOO comfy. End the quest for the perfect pillow and buy this one.

I can't believe this product is supposed to be like this!
I have had this pillow for a few months now and have now given up! Why it is called a memory pillow I don't know, it doesn't have to remember anything because it is so hard your head doesn't dent it for it to remember!! On reading the reviews so far I think the main characteristic of someone who might be pleased would be "sleeps like a log". Sadly I am a fairly light sleeper who also likes to sleep with their head quite high. Total waste of a lot of money for me and anyone else who does not sleep like a log!

Comfy at last!
I really like this pillow. It has just the right amount of support and height for my head and neck. Since using it I have not woken with sore head or neck. My head seems to stay put and I have a very comfortable sleep. The strange smell that you get when placing your head on it when first getting in to bed was a little weird but went after two weeks. Be careful about size of pillowslips though. It was a tight fit into my Jonelle pillowslips.

Best of both worlds
My first thought on using it was that the memory foam side seemed too firm; my second thought was...zzzzzzzz. I was asleep! Marvellous. Wouldn't be without it now. Think the polyester side makes the memory foam a little softer than other products of this type.

No more headaches
I bought this for my husband who has been suffering from a stiff neck and bad headaches for months. Since he began to use this pillow the headaches have disappeared. I also bought one for my sister who reports night after night of the best sleep she has had for years.

Not the pillow for me
Its hard to comment really as pillows are a very personal choice but I haven't found this pillow comfortable. No particular reason, it seems well made - firm to the touch and springing back to shape. For me though I find it uncomfortable and have stopped using it - which is a shame after reading the other positive reviews!
