The users who did not like the product complain about its firmness and durability. They say that It is not as firm, and lose its shape over time, like a year. (Almost all the reading pillows have the same kind of negative reviews. It is because, one pillow cannot satisfy everyone. Buy the solution to this is to get  a reading pillow with adjustable firmness, i.e. husband pillow. It allows you to add or remove shredded foam to increase or decrease the firmness. I mean, if you need more support, then remove some of the foam. And if you need it to be soft and cushiony, then get some foam removed.)
