If you are attached to your existing pillow, try the La Petite since it is meant to be placed on top of your favorite pillow. It measures 19' long x 10' wide x 2'in thickness. It is low profile, so as not to crook your neck when you add it to your existing pillow; yet high enough to suspend your face. The La Petite is more precise than the Le Grande; if you start out on your back and move your head from side to side, your face will be properly placed over the crescents and suspended. This model is also great for travel and fits nicely in your briefcase or travel bag. The La Petite can also be folded in half to create a single crescent, and offer cervical support. It promotes back sleeping, and is used post op when the neck and head must be comfortably stabilized, or to ease stress and tension in the neck and shoulder area at the end of a long and stressful day. However, if you experience painful ear syndrome, do not choose the La Petite, as the little arms, or appendages are more firm than the Le Grande, since the appendages are smaller. The La Petite slightly leads in sales and was the 'first born' in the Save My Face Pillowette family!
The Le Grande may be used by itself if you do not need 'a lot of pillow'. The Le Grande joins the La Petite in its versatility and can be used on top of a low profile pillow like a feather down. It is bigger and fluffier than the La Petite! Many people visually go for the Le Grande because it is so fluffy - they grab it and hug it! It is recommended for 'true side sleepers' meaning those of you who start out on your side. It is designed for those of you who like to clench the end of the pillow while you sleep. For those of you who experience painful ears while sleeping choose the Le Grande Pillowette. It does not profess to relieve the problem since part of your ear helps to support, but would be your pillowette of choice. Since there is more mass in the center of the pillowette, it is not as precise as the La Petite. If you start out on your back, then move your head from side to side, your face could come in contact with the pillow - you must scoot to the edge with this pillowette - but it is well worth it! The crescent openings are the same size as the La Petite, however, appear smaller because of the larger size of the appendage. The appendages are pliable so you can pull it down away from your chin area. The Le Grande Pillowette is helpful if a person is bedridden for any reason and is recovering and must remain on their back for a length of time. It may be placed lengthwise down the center of the back between the scapula and is very comfortable when one must be elevated.
