Not perfect
I've been using this pillow for about the last 5 years. Yes, the rolls for under the neck are too big as many have mentioned. The bigl roll should be the size of the small roll and the small roll should be smaller and the opening for your head should be larger and let your head lay at mattress level. When the roll is under your neck, your head ends up halfway on top of the other roll. Still, this is one of the only pillows made half right. I cut mine open and took some of the stuffing out to make the proper size roll (maybe they should offer different size rolls) and make the are where your he

Tri-Core Cervical Support Pillow, order 43347
I like some things about the pillow and not others. I have occipital neuralgia due to a fall in which I hit the back of my head and having a pillow with a hole in the middle, like the tri core, helps take some pressure off the back of my pain and reduces headaches. Additionally, the medium size pillow is the right size for my neck. At the same time, I find the pillow a bit hard, even though I bought a medium firm pillow. I realize the firmness helps support the neck but, in my case, the firmness can put pressure on my occipital nerves and cause pain. Finally, I would like the pillow more if yo

Best Night's Sleep in a Long Long Time!!
I have gone through 4 pillows in just a few months before buying this one. Right from the first night, I slept all the way through the night and I am no longer tossing and turning or flipping my pillow a million times during the night. I actually feel well rested and refreshed when I wake up. This pillow has been a life saver for me. I'm 5'2" and 180lbs and I ordered the white medium size pillow with the regular firm support. It fits my neck and head perfectly. I've only had it for a few weeks so I can't speak to how long it will last, but so far it has not changed shape at all. Even if I only

read my review
I'm undecisive about this pillow. sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. it's just a very very stiff pillow and I'm not used to that. I'm used to stuff pillows but not this stiff. I'm going to keep it because I think it'll work out. I just need to get used to it. but if you don't like a very stiff pillow oh, you're not going to like this one. I do think the area where the neck rest should be a little smaller. I did read a review where the woman said your neck has to be really long in order to fit the curve and have your headrest inside. I do agree with that. if you don't have a long neck or y

life saver!
I was worried the firm pillow was going to be too much for me when it was received, since I'm on the smaller side, but I am so grateful for this pillow! After dealing with a bulging disc in my neck for yeeears and never finding a comfortable way to sleep, this pillow has been a serious game changer. I've had to sleep with my arm jammed under my pillows to give my neck the support it needs, resulting in other discomforts, and memory foam pillows have all been a bust for me. But finally I don't wake up in immense pain for the first time in ages! I would totally recommend to anyone with neck and

Excellent Full Size Standard (Firm)
Excellent pillow. Been searching for a new pillow to support side & back sleeping for years now. Ive either picked up pillows too flat or too high which has caused neck & arm & hand issues (put my hand under too flat ones to raise up). This is first pillow Ive had that perfectly supports my head & neck & I look forward to sleeping on it every night. This was a total game changer. Excellent price as well considering Ive paid much much more on pillows that caused sore neck & headaches in the morning. My only criticism is that it does seem to flatten - so I just flip it over.

Greatly decreased migraine
First off, I hated this pillow. It is uncomfortable to me as I have always used pillows that are very flat and not supportive. This one is very firm however it has GREATLY decreased my migraines. It was recommended to me by my chiropractor and even though this pillow is uncomfortable to me and I miss my old pillows I will never go back. It works. It helps. If you have chronic migraines that start in the back of your neck and you often wake up with BUY THIS PILLOW. and even if you hate it use it anyways.

Still adjusting
This pillow was recommended by chiro to return cervical curve. Its fine and comfortable when sleeping on my back. When on my side, this is where it gets somewhat uncomfortable- the pillow is very firm (more form than I was expecting) and Im still adjusting, but has good height so my shoulder isnt crushed. What I dont like is how small the sides are, if you move your head is off the pillow or sink in the middle- I have to be on the edge of middle of the bed to have my head positioned correctly. Wish the sides were larger. Im sticking with it longer to see if I get comfortable.

Not great for side sleepers.
This pillow hasn't been ideal for side sleeping, which I do mostly. The hardness of this pillow is good for my neck, but the side pillars (where a side sleeper is supposed to rest the head) is so narrow your head will not feel supported and will roll back into the divot. The hardness is also difficult on your ears, I actually wake up pretty frequently with pounding hot ears and to readjust my head. I wish there was a small horizontal divot that ran the length of the pillow, to allow my ears space not to get smashed. That would also allow my head to feel more supported.

Dramatically improved my neck pain
Within a day or two of using this pillow, my neck pain felt so much better! I used to use a heating pad every morning on my neck, but I don't need to do that anymore! This pillow provides enough support for my neck when I'm laying on my back or my side. Before using this pillow, I would wake up with a migraine if I slept on my side, but this pillow is firm enough that my neck gets enough support when I'm side sleeping. After sleeping on this pillow for a couple weeks, I actually ordered a second pillow just in case something ever happens to this one!

New User
I have always used a traditional pillow so having a pillow that has an indentation in the center for the head surrounded by raised areas for the neck (back sleeping) and sides (side sleeping) was a new experience. I rest okay and the new design does not affect my sleep. Good news is that I do not get up with an aching neck. I have the firm (standard) style and will have to get use to the new feel. The pillow was recommended as part of the treatment for my sciatica lower back pain. So far so good.

Thanks Goodness I found Core
I was given this pillow by someone. I had tried numerous pillows but had never heard of Core. From the first night I used it ( about 3 monthe ago) I have had great comfort.There was no adjustment period for me.I have used it EVERY night. I love it. I have a work related neck injury and this pillow is perfect. I am a side and back sleeper and it is so easy to revert from side to back without having to adjust the pillow. My only wish is that the company made pillow cases for the pillows.

This pillow is a lifesaver! I have chronic intermittent problems with arm numbness and nerve pain. When I have a flair up I wake up in pain in the middle of the night. This pillow puts my neck in proper alignment and relieves my symptoms. I can sleep through the night again! If you have neck issues or arm/nerve issues, DEFINITELY give this pillow a try! I think you won't be disappointed. I cannot live without it!

Great Pillow - recommended by my chiropractor
I love this pillow! I have lost curvature in my cervical spine and had upper back and neck stiffness and some pain. Before purchasing the Tri-Core pillow, I read that it is recommended to slowly adjust to it by swapping it with your original pillow a little bit at a time, progressively increasing. But I found that I only needed a couple nights of adjustment and when I would switch back from the Core pillow to my old Tempurpedic pillow, my neck stiffness would come back just as before. Anyhoo, very happy with this purchase and doubly happy to support a USA-owned and operated business as well! T

TriCore cervical pillow
A number of years ago this pillow saved the quality of my life. I had neck pain that no amount of doctoring helped. I used the pillow until I realized I needed a new one. Unfortunately the new one did not do the trick. It caused tremendous back pain so I used it only once. With all this said I still believe in this pillow when all else fails. It was worth it once. The failure to deliver is on my anatomy

I have hunted high and low trying to remember the name of the company that had this remarkably wonderful pillow. Prior to moving a few years ago, the company we hired, packed our bedroom linen and bedding with another client's stuff. That smooth move resulted in a kerosene lamp spilling out all over our bedding to include pillows. We received a sorry about that and a check. Cleaning out my filing cabinet I found the brochure about your pillow. I am now happily in dream land once again.

Outgassing From Packaging
I do love this pillow but could not use it for several days because the pillow was permeated with the scent of the plastic in came in. I have complained to the company but was not really listened to, so have to put in a separate room til the plastic odor went away. I also used baking soda rubbed on the pillow itself that seemed to speed the process along. I can use it now and my neck and hips have lost the soreness that came from very used tri core pillow I have had for a few years now. I am very grateful for this product. I still urge the company to examine the plastic that is used to ship. I

sleep relief
Saw this pillow at my chiropractor's office and bought it on the spot for $70! Was looking for any pillow that would be comfortable to sleep on my back. "My Pillow" and down alternatives did not hold their shape or were very uncomfortable after a few hours. Usually toss and turn trying to get comfortable with other pillows but the gentle core pillow cradled my head and neck perfectly that I did not have to side sleep at all. Core pillow is working great and I bought my wife the same for $40 on the Core website. Recommended to a friend and he accidentally ordered the firm. He said they were way

Never Slept Better
I have been searching for a pillow for what seems like forever. I am a back and side sleeper and just couldnt find anything that worked for both ways of sleeping. I was constantly waking up with neck and upper back pain and couldnt turn my head from side to side with any ease. I was recently visiting a friend and she had this pillow on the guest bed. I slept on it for 3 days and felt so good in the morning. I was so impressed I immediately ordered one when I got home. I have been sleeping on it for about a month now. I no longer wake up in pain and have much greater range of motion in my neck.

almost just right
I read reviews and decided to go with the petite firm pillow. I'm 5'2" and 110lbs. the pillow is awesome, except I wish I would have gone with the mid or full size. Reviews made it seem like the neck support sizing was too large, even in the petite size. The petite pillow feels too me like the support is just slightly undersized for me.

It was hard
I need support for my neck. I sleep on my side and back. Ive been using a trim core pillow for many years. I thought it needed to be replaced. But this d core was hard and hurt my ears when I laid on my side. Also on my back, the roll under my neck was too high. I could use it a lot to wear it down and soften it, but that will take many hurting months.

Medium firm - sizing
I originally ordered the full size firm Tri-Core Cervical Support Pillow, but it was completely too big for me. I'm a petite 5'2 women and in this case, bigger was not better. I was able to connect with customer service to exchange the pillow since it was way too big and a medium would be the proper size. Support was able to refund me the cost for the Full size pillow and once that was shown on my balance, I ordered the appropriate medium - firm size. I could not be happier that I did not have to return and pay for shipping which would've been the complete cost of the pillow. 5 stars for custo

Great little pillow--for someone else
Shipping was fast. The soft standard pillow was great to sleep on. I used the lower side when on my back. I thought the higher side worked better when I was on my shoulder. Unfortunately, I share a full-sized bed, so if I wanted to lie on my shoulder, I was either on the very edge of the bed, or if I turned on my axis in "my space" I had to shove my pillow into my bedpartner's space to reach the raised edge. Therefore, I returned it and will continue to fold my old pillow over when I want it to be higher. (Beware the shipping co$t$!)

Core Pillow
I love this pillow. I purchased my first one several years ago. I should have updated it but I waited and paid the price with a very sore neck. I was sooooo grateful that my new pillow arrived only two days after I placed my order. So amazing at this time in our economy. Thank you! My neck immediately felt better.

Great Pillow
The Tri-Core cervical pillow is amazing to sleep I have compressed discs in my neck and this pillow helps me to sleep comfortably. I got the gentle support, since getting the firm didn't feel right. So now my niece sleeps on it and I have bought 2 more (hey don't judge). I need a spare for trips etc and gave my sister the other one for her neck problem too. Yes it is hereditary in my family including juvenile arthritis which my niece has. Thanks for just the right pillow for neck injuries.

D-Core Pillow
I have had 2 in the past and decided it was time to replace. The pillow did alot for me because of a serious work accident years ago. So I ordered a new pillow but I am not sure of the issue but it doesnt seem to be working like it should. I require a pillow to keep me kneck straight and my spine but it doesnt seem to be helping so much. Maybe its me and I should try a different one but which I have no idea.

Best pillow out there for neck issues
I've been using the Tri-Core pillow for a few years now. I've purchased a few of these and think there is no better pillow for neck issues. I've tried them all...and this has been a life changing pillow for me. Thanks to a car accident 20 years ago, I have neck issues for life. Since I sleep on my back and my side, I was never able to find a pillow that was good for both. I'd buy a pillow great for one and then switching positions in the middle of the night caused me to wake up with neck pain that would sometimes last for weeks. This pillow cured that problem. I wake up with my neck feeling li

Supportive pillow for pinched neck nerves
This pillow is kind of hard to get used to if you like to sleep on your sides at all, but it does keep you from waking up to a neck crick when you are prone to neck problems and headaches. You have to gradually build up to it. I have 4 of them and keep one in the truck for traveling. It really feels great how it cradles your head if you are a back sleeper, and I am thankful they are Made in the USA !!

Mid core soft
I was replacing a tri core pillow that I have used for years and by mistake I ordered the firm one as advertised on the website. When I called customer service and explained that i think i meant to buy the soft one, they were extremely helpful and generous and sent me the pillow that I intended to order and got a refund for the wrong one. My chiropractor recommended this pillow for me. Love it.

Better for back sleepers.
I think this pillow is best suited for back sleepers. I am primarily a side sleeper and the small area where my head can rest is just too small of an area. It was recommended to me by my chiropractor so I trusted the recommendation. I wouldnt mind returning and trading for a different pillow with a larger lift and designed solely for side sleepers.

I absolutely LOVE the concept of this pillows design, it is essentially what I have been trying to create with the fluffing/positioning of a regular pillow or one of my many many expensive $50-$100+ pillows that I have purchased over the years...and Ive found it, thanks to my Chiropractors's referral! With only one night of sleep on the pillow I did notice a certain amount of discomfort (which granted, there is a CLEAR DISCLAIMER of proper use and rotation of this and a regular pillow)And morning discomfort isnt unusual for me anyhow. The two sides with different sizes levels of fluff is a rea

It was fairly easy for me to get used to this, in a few weeks, as I switch from side and back sleeping through the night. I didnt expect to like the side sleeping ledges on the sides of the pillow, but they work! My neck is feeling better (I just had general pain from using a too-high pillow under my head). Plus its a great value for the price. Thank you!

Not sure yet
It's very uncomfortable for me, esp. when I'm side sleeping. Causes lots of neck discomfort. My cervical necks is really giving me problems right now, which is what prompted my order. I'm going to try it again after I see the chiropractor to see if it's helpful when my neck is in better shape. If not, don't think I can use it. I've tried so many pillows and really need to find one that works for me. I have a cervical neck injury and real challenges with sleeping.

The wisest purchase I have made in 30 years.
The difference between the Tri-Core Cervical Support Pillow, and my previous pillow--a too-well advertised chopped fiber pillow--is greater than the difference between night and day. Summed up: my shoulders are realigning and straightening, nerve problems in arms and hands are disappearing, and my breathing difficulties at night are abating. I should have bought this pillow 30 years ago.

best pillow for the necl
I have been using the Core D pillow for about as long as I knew it existed probably over 30 years. I heed it to support my neck. I got the first one from a Chiropractor and ;have not been without since. It took a week or more to adjust to the firmness but once it adjusted the neck to what it should be I was sold on it. I am 78 years old. I hope Core keeps making them for the rest of my life! .
