I purchased this last year as a gift for my son in law. Both he and my daughter asked for another one this year. Our family is accustomed to down pillows since they conform to your head. If you love super firm pillows, this may not be a good choice for you but for my family, we all love it,
The description and reviews looked great, and the price even better. I ordered 4 king size. I knew something was amiss when 4 king pillows arrived in only one moderate size box. They look nothing like the pictures or descriptions. They were barely two inches thick, across the entire surface of the pillow. Very little fill. It's like they took a cheap mattress pillow top and chopped it up into pillows. In my years of online shopping (I was one of Amazon.com com's first customers in 1995), I've never had a product delivered that was so far off what the online description was. Returned them all. I have no explanation for why the other reviews were so positive. Perhaps I was shipped the wrong pillows. Or I live in an alternate universe where adults humans are not 2 feet high and use doll-sized bedding.
Pillows are much more comfortable than I expected. I always preferred a Very , Very Firm pillow. My aunt used to make my father a pillow from time to time, from saved chicken feathers.I would get the pillow that was being replaced. The pillows were fantastic in a pillow fight. I received my new pillows from overstock, and love them.
Last year, I threw out my husband's feather pillow because it was very old and beginning to have an odor. We have tried, very unsuccessfully, to replace it with something comparable. We have purchased, and returned, several pillow - many quite a bit more expensive-all to no avail! He had just about given up hope of EVER having a good night's sleep again, when this one arrived...and, HE LOVE'S IT!!! Just the right combination of support, and "squishiness". Thank goodness - now I can finally stop hearing about " how I threw out his favorite pillow"!
These pillows are OK for the price. They took a day or so to fluff up and comfortable, but don't have a separate pillow cover (which I rather read they did but must have been wrong) which for the cost I think they should have. They don't have a fantastically luxury down feeling, so if I buy others I will probably go up in price a little. Overall they were fine for the cost.
Unpackaged and removed from the vinyl packaging and the pillows reeked like the vinyl. Left them outdoors all afternoon and the odor did disipate. As far as the pillows, good quaity for the price; fluffed up and held their fullness. As far as firmness, I rate them as average for side sleeping. Had put the two pillows together to get the firmness desired. Will put them in the guest room and look for another set.
My husband came home with a new pillow. He paid over $93.00 for one standard pillow. I took him to this site, ordered two king size. Quality was exactly the same. We've been sleeping on these pillows for over two weeks and are completely satisfied. He took his purchase back! These pillows are high quality and worth every cent!
