If you want supportive memory foam, this is an excellent pillow just not as soft as it suggests.
Note: March 2019 – Reduced by £40 since we last looked 🙂 For years it’s been on Amazon at £139 – but is now reduced to £99. Definitely worth considering.
Now this is an interesting idea…
The Tempur symphony pillow has one side with Tempur memory foam, and the other with a more traditional synthetic filling. Now, while I have a memory foam mattress, and certainly find that it is great for a deep and undisturbed sleep, I have never got on so well with Tempur pillows. This seems an interesting compromise, with a softer support on the memory foam side, and what can best be described as a firm level of support on the other side. Surprisingly though, it really does work. The Tempur-side is far more forgiving when I first lay down my head, and it quickly fits to my head and neck.
It is heavy though, and if you enjoy turning your pillow over in the night, then it can come as quite a shock at first. Overall, it gets a 4 star rating from me, an ideal pillow for those needing a supportive pillow.
