Sleep Better Memory Foam Pillow
yeah memory foam smells pretty horrible at first, but it will go away. i have a memory foam bed and even after airing out the recommended amount of time it still had a slight smell, but it's fine now. super comfy.
I got a couple of memory foam pillows around Thanksgiving. Hard to get used to at first because they were hard, but now I find I get the best sleep of my adult life. I am mostly a side sleeper, but sometimes on my back. BAD news for stomach though.
Why do you say BAD for the stomach?
Probably because memory foam pillows aren't flat enough and will elevate the head too much causing strain on the neck. You're better of with down or down-alternative if you're a stomach sleeper.
Personally, I both love memory foam and LOVE the smell of it. I have several memory foam pillows and memory foam mattress toppers. You should try your pillow, you have nothing to lose! It might take some getting used to though.
