I was looking for the 2nd pillow on our bed, just behind the down pillow, between the headboard. I like to read in bed and needed something that would prop me up against the headboard. These pillows are perfect, nice presentation, with the silk edge, which helps me remember which one is which! And my husband ended up liking this one better that the $100 down pillow.
We were excited about trying these pillows out. Quality and appearance are both great. Very dense and firm. Sure glad I didn't order extra-firm. However, I fidgeted with the pillow all night trying to get comfortable. Felt like I was sleeping propped up. I tried very hard to make the pillow work for me. In the morning, my husband said, "Let's switch back to our other pillows." As noted by another review, these make great pillows for shams and sitting up on the bed. Can't beat the price for the quality.
I'm a person who gets used to a pillow and can't sleep with any other pillow. It usually takes me a long time to get used to a new pillow. I was able to sleep comfortably the first night on these pillows. I am a side/stomach sleeper, after reading previous reviews I decided on the medium pillows and I'd say they are perfect for the side/stomach sleeper. These pillows are a great value!
We got these pillows yesturday and WE LOVE THEM! We could not beleive how soft, yet comfortably firm they are. I was able to scrunch them up and they regained their shape immediatley. I hope these last a long time. We HIGHLY recommend these pillows. I also did not have to use 3 pillows to get to sleep, just the one!
Here are 'personal differences' again!! Some say too hard but these are not too hard for me. I have to place another flat pillow in the case with this pillow in order to get the height for side sleeping. By themselves, these should be fine for average sized people who sleep on their sides and want the head elevated for shoulder comfort. Construction seems more than adaquate.
I wasn't expecting the pillows to be so thick. I can not sleep on these so I guess I'll use them in my pillow shams.That's an expensive pillow sham though. If I had not got rid of the box they were shipped in I would be sending them back. I was not satisfied at all with this purchase. S.Jones
I love my new pillows. The very first night I received them I slept through the night. I no longer wake up with a stiff neck or a headache. I can now sleep just as comfortably on my back and on my side. Such a simple solution to a lifelong problem. I'll order them again and again.
I recently purchased a pair of these pillows in extra-firm. They are as described, filled very firmly. The fabric is very nice and the stitching/trim is excellent. I was slightly disappointed that the filling did not extend into the corners of the pillow well at all. If I were not handy with a needle and thread, I might have been more disappointed. Since the pillows were a tad-bit too firm for me, and they didn't seem like they were going to squish down (a problem with lots of poly-fill pillows, in my experience) I carefully opened one end of each pillow enough to get my hand and forearm in and redistributed some filling from the fat middle to the empty corners. Neatly hand stitched the opening back closed again. MUCH BETTER!! That was just enough to reduce the firmness a bit and make me happy with nice corners! The short of it is, these are very plumply filled with a nice resilient poly fiber that at this point - 3 weeks - seems it is not prone to going flat. A little more manufacturing care, to bring the filling distribution up to par with the nice fabrics and sewing workmanship would be all that's needed. If you like them plump and bouncy, you will like these!
I am very happy with these pillows. They are so comfortable. I have been waking up with a sore neck and since they arrived 3 days ago I haven't had any complaints. They do make a sound that I have seen in other reviews that I heard when putting them in cases but after that nothing. ZZZ....
