The Lyra has a resilient and buoyant foam-like feel that provides pressure-relieving support. The pillow never flattens. It has a surface that provides soft give and squish balanced with a substantive, firmer feel. You won't get that gradual "sinking" feel you get with memory foam. Instead, your head will feel lifted, almost floating.
While latex has a natural springiness, the Lyra's firm texture is relatively less bouncy than other latex pillows. The Lyra is not overly high, but it does retain height that supports the neck, especially when side sleeping.
Latex is considered hypoallergenic and breathable. (Note: We do not recommend the Lyra if you have a latex allergy.)
To get a sense for how the Lyra "feels," how it moves and its springiness, check out the 2nd video in our image gallery (to the right).
