    Neckaches? Get a Tempur pillow. Nothing else comes close.

    They are about $150 or more each.
    More expensive ones will have contours near the neck area.
    Because it is foam, you get hot quickly if you do not sleep with A/C at night.
    Dunlopillo is cheaper and good too. It's made of latex. Cooler than foam.
    They will always maintain their shape, firm but bouncy.

    i bought one for my wife at more than $200+ 3 years ago. they are TOTALLY worth it compared to the cheaper ones. my wife tried at least 3-4 cheap ($50-$100) ones then no choice, had to go to tempur. they were the most expensive but it worked *finally* and i could rest from massaging her neck. why tempur?

    1. the cheaper stuff lose their shape in less than 1 year.
    2. tempur has different sizes for different necks.
    3. the lady at isetan parkway (3 years ago) was trained to advice the right fit.

    the tempur pillow is starting to lose it's shape only after 3 years, so it's pretty worth it for the long run.

    Hi ... heard that it gets warm quite quickly ... is it a real problem? I'm not in the habit of turning on AC ...

    I'm also a supporter of getting good pillows and beds, we spent 1/3 of our time on it!!

    Try the following from a local store....

    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Yes your right, it does get warm quickly. very dense. that's the minus point. but between the aircon (or fan) and a sore neck, i'd go for the former. the wife has been having a relaxed sleep every night for the last 3 years (she even brings it on vacation), that's priceless.

    Thanks ... just came back from Robinsons and got a Sinomax brand pillow. It's slightly cheaper than Tempur (didn't get it due to the heat concern). Also used my $100 Robinsons voucher, on top of the 10% discount so ended up paying about $120.

    Will update you guys ... really hope it'll address my aching neck problems ...
