I always start by reading the negative comments.. I am not sure why, I guess it adds balance to my purchase. And so I'll start by saying this, if you prefer soft pillows then you'll be over the top with this, if you prefer hard then look for something else. I have tried (per advise of many) hard pillows, or pillows that allegedly support your cervical spine, I only wake up with a headache every day.. plus the bulk, and the spine of the feathers is positively unbearable .. tossing and turning all night trying to find a comfortable position isn't my idea of support . I had so many pillows because I was purchasing something new every few months and super expensive. I gave away half of them and made a pillow out of a small summer feather comforter that had been washed a thousand times over, I rolled it and flattened it into a pillow and it was so tattered but the only thing that gave me comfort.. when I read the negative reviews here especially the ones claiming that this is super flat (it isn't at all flat) it is a very thick pillow in fact which you quickly sink into it is delicious, but anyhow after reading that specific negative review I was sold.. so the bottom line that you should take from this is, if you like soft, cushy cloud like pillow that you'll sink into, this is for you.. if you want the latest sponge pillow err memory foam or funny shaped concoction that will wedge your head between three triangles, or some Tudor society leather cradle for your head, then run don't simply walk away from this..
This pillow is just what I was hoping for. Every other pillow I have had before was nice but this one is perfect. I have had trouble with my neck hurting when I get up in the morning but since using this one I haven't had a stiff neck. Simply great!
I ordered these pillows thinking they were the same Damask pillows that you can get from LL Bean, except sold for a much more reasonable price. When we received the pillows, the brand name was nowhere on the pillows. My husband and I tried them out, and our heads hit the mattress on the first night. There was no support whatsoever. I would not recommend these to anyone!
Like the title says, if you're looking for a thick pillow with lots of loft, this isn't for you. I wanted a flatter pillow that didn't have as much support so that I could mold it around and shape it how I like. This pillow fit the bill. I can side sleep and have plenty of support for my neck without having my head jacked way up in the air.
I'm extremely pleased with both the pillows and the reliability of overstock. The price is very fair for down pillow-not 100% down, but 75%+ is good enough for me. There is no feather fill either. If you need a firm pillow, this is not for you. I have arthritic neck and need the flexibility of sinking down into pillow. Another bonus is the fair shipping price-no rip off!
...but still a good pillow. I was trying to replace some pillows that my husband and I received for a wedding present that had started to get, well, old. And the ones we had were completely down. The pillows I bought were not as big as the ones we had nor were they completely down filled. Instead, they have some kind of polyester and down combo.They are comfortable and a definite improvement over the pillows I had, they just weren't exactly what I was looking for.
These pillows are great! I have been sleeping on them for a few months and they are very comfortable and well made with no down poking through. Down is a good medium soft fill perfect for me as a stomach sleeper. True down pillows no feathers mixed in or down surround just down all the way through. Makes for a nice soft pillow with no lumpyness. No strange odor as others have mentioned just the smell of down which doesn't bother me and goes away after a few days. Maybe that is what others are smelling they just don't know what down smells like. Great value and quality thanks overstock!
