Has anyone tried the memory foam pillows?

I use one. It takes a bit getting used to but after that, it is brilliant.

This is the one I got

jpv. Do you use a standard shaped pillow or the one with a neck support? I have only looked at the Tempur ones to date.

Shouldn't you choose pillows based on how you sleep, i.e if you sleep on your side or back then you need different types of pillow? The last pillows I bought were from Dunelm where they have a chart telling you how to pick your pillows and a range of types and prices. Personally I'm not a fan of memory foam, or any foam, I prefer my pillows stuffed with feathers, but each to thier own and whatevers comfortable is the right pillow for you.

I am not fussed. I do not like feathered pillows, because bed-mites tend to infest them. So mine are nylon-strand-stuffed, which does the job perfectly for me. I have not tried memory-foam as yet.

I'm very fussed as I can't stand uncomfortable or hard pillows. Mine are usually goose down but I wouldn't mind trying a memory foam one.

I bought a memory foam neck support pillow from Lidl a while ago. It felt soft enough when I pressed it with my hand, but when I put my head on it, it felt like lying on a brick. I figured it would give a bit in time and get softer - but it didn't. Maybe a higher quality one would be better, like Tempur?

You need to have a short kip in the shop and try one out.

I like just one nice feather pillow. Don't like big hard pillows or anything foam. Hate memory foam mattresses. And if you take away the fancy word Memory you are simply left with form, which is all they are. Like pocket sprung mattresses, feather duvets and feather pillows. But that is just my preferance. It is all a matter of what you prefer and what you find most comfortable.

They are also heavy so no good for pillow fights.

I have a missing disc in my neck and stiff shoulders. I don't get on with artificial fibre pillows and currently have a pair of goose feather and down pillows, the top one getting partially wrapped round whichever arm I lie on when not sleeping on my back.

I've used the ergonomically shaped Tempur pillow and found it very comfortable. I'm also a goose feather fan most of the time.

The right pillow is important and worth experimenting with.

Maybe how comfortable you find them depends on the length of ones neck as well as sleeping position?
