These down alternative pillows were a deep disappointment. I was planning on using them for sham pillows - so my bar was low to begin with. But, these pillows were so understuffed that when I held them up by one end, the stuffing fell below half - and light shone through the fabric. Clearly, I'm returning these pillows.
I am forever looking for pillows that truly mimic down...and down is not "puffy" or "bouncy" or "hard." own gives when you lay your head on it...yes, it "squishes" down. These pillows do that and therefore, come the closest to down of any I have tried. But be warned, if you want a springy, bouncy, puffy pillow...this is not the pillow for you.
I really love the quality of these pillows. HOWEVER, (and this is a big deal to me), the plastic bag they were packed in had a very strong chemical smell. In fact, when my husband brought the box in the house, we both noticed the odor. Thinking it was the packing tape, I opened it and the smell was even stronger. I took the pillows out of the bag, put them outside in the fresh air for about 5 hours (along with the stinky box and bag). The smell did not dissipate so I washed and dried them. Two days later, the smell is still there but not near as strong. I am hoping it goes away with another washing. Other than that, the pillows are great! I do not have a sensitivity to odors, so I'm wondering if anyone else had this same experience when ordering this same pillow. Perhaps you could change the packaging?!
My hubby and I used to have pillows like these but after the seams burst and we had feathers and down all over our bedroom, we quickly bought some cheapies at Costco. BIG mistake. Alas, now that these bits of heavenly fluff have arrived, we are both sleeping and my arms don't go numb anymore. They are soft but supportive. You can bunch them up on the sides to form more support in the middle for your head if you need to or double them in half if you need extra fluff. Great pillows! Just wish they came with some casings.
This item was the worst product I've received from Overstock! It came in a busted up box and the contents were foul/fowl smelling.- and this was not an animal product! I immediately taped the box shut and returned it in the rush of a holiday shipping line at the UPS store. I'm surprised at Overstock for sending out a product of such poor quality. No one could possibly tolerate this odor especially in their bed! I went to ****** and purchased 2 pillows of superior quality and a lower price.
If you like soft, squishy pillows, these are FOR YOU! I love them because you can squish them and tuck them under your head...very soft and pliable. Great quality! If you like hard pillows, don't purchase these. You WON'T like them. The pillow covering is very soft and nice. Hardly need to put a pillowcase on!
