All these reviews appear to be from people who've just received their pillows. And all decent pillows feel great at first. The real question is how long they stay that way (particularly for non-down pillows, which tend to harden quite fast). I bought this set of two pillows in August of 2013. I got four months of use out of the first one, then it started getting uncomfortable. It wasn't necessarily hardened to the touch, but I'd wake up with my ear aching (I'm a side sleeper). I started using the second pillow. And that, too, was comfortable for only four months. I could probably get six months out of each pillow if I was willing to wake up with ears aching like a boxer. Note: I fluff my pillows nightly. I've never had a down alternative pillow feel comfortable for longer than four months, and I always buy well-reviewed ones. Again, the problem is that nobody reviews a year later. I'm just going to switch to down and buy a high-quality hypo-allergenic barrier to stave off allergies. As it thins (as down always does), I may place it atop one of these pillows just for the extra height/support for side-sleeping.
I'd recommend these pillows... now that I'v purchased 2 more sets totaling 3 (6 pillows in all). The photo show a wrinkly pillow protector but "Candice Olson" hmm I thought she would probably have good products; so I discarded the photo and decided to take a chance...Very glad I did. They are full and yet soft, the fabric is nice quality and so is the stitching. The pillow protector is a great bonus...much nicer than what the local store has. The price is Awesome!!!
These pillows are pretty good. I've had a hard time finding pillows that are full enough and firm enough for a side sleeper. I wish these were a bit more full and firm, but their pretty good. I have to admit I've been sleeping well on them. But as a side sleeper, I wish my head would not sink down quite as much in them. It would be better if my neck could be straight instead of tilting down a bit into the pillow, that's what I was hoping for. I haven't found the perfect pillow yet, and it's hard to do in a king size pillow. But these are as good as I've found yet.
Amazing!!! I have been on the hut for some great new pillows and I have bought about three other ones that turned out not to be very good, but these are amazing!! Soft like down but they don't get flat after 5 minutes of sleeping and feathers don't stab you in the face! I have had these for about a week now and I am very impressed. I am a side sleeper and my husband is a back sleeper and we both love them. The price is great too. Also they come with removable covers.
These pillows are huge - about as big around as a basketball - and they are hard. They don't conform to your head and shoulders, at all. They would make great sofa cushions - they're that dense. The problem with such hard and big around pillows is that when on your back, they force your chin down toward your chest. If on your side, your head is cranked toward your shoulder. In other words, your head and neck are forced to conform to the big, hard pillow instead the pillow conforming to you. Marketed as "down alternative" (down being soft and conforming), these pillows don't fit that description AT ALL. I'm really bummed that I bought them because Overstock does not have a good return policy. I've slept on them so I'm out of luck. In my opinion, if a product is misrepresented then it should be refunded. If you want a soft and conforming pillow, you will hate these. If you want something so big and firm that you could use them as backrests, you'll like them. My two cents.
When I think of down alternative I am expecting something that molds to the way I adjust it. These pillows are nice and of good quality but they are closer to foam then down. I ordered down alternative from O before and returned them, I gave these to my son and he said they are OK. I really wish when a maker uses the words down alternative you could trust it but that's not the case. I think these pillows are of good quality but the description is so misleading that I gave a low score. I have been reading the reviews for both down and alternative on O and have finally decided that you can only buy a pillow for yourself in person. Everyone has their own thing with pillows, it is very much a personal preference, soft to you can be a rock to me and visa versa so I am on my way to **** to find my pillows.
My husband and I had spent too much money on "bargain" pillows and I was at my whits end. We were not sleeping well, waking up with pain, enough was enough. These pillows are a great price but also they are full and soft. They melt around my head but bounce back to shape when my head isn't on them. love the look and feel, the added cover is a nice little bonus. I love them and hope they last a while. Will definitely be ordering more!
Unless you are looking for a stiff neck I wouldn't purchase this product. Though the construction seems to be good, the overall feel of the pillows are not good. It is soft for a few inches and then you hit hard and there really isn't much give after the initial few inches of softness. I slept on this the own night and didn't sleep hardly a wink.
I bought this set for myself. I was impressed also by the value. The pillows are the right amount of soft and allowed me to sleep soundly at night. They had the right amount of "give" especially around my neck area! They are very comfortable and are quality made. If your neck hurts from lack of support, these pillows should help a lot!
I have just received the two pillows which I had ordered, because my hubby is allergic to feather, and am about to order another six for two bedrooms. I absolutely love the feel and the case which comes with it. Does not look cheap. I would definitely recommend , and I am a picky one, in all honesty.
Omg u can not go wrong with these pillows!!, after all she lives up to her name!! Just to bad u can't get them anymore or I would by a set for each of my beds. Great price and wonderful with the cover u can take off and wash!! Sorry no one can get them.
I purchased these for the guest room, but my husband tried one out and claimed it. He says it enables him to sleep on his side because it provides excellent support for his head. Pillows are very personal and this pillow is way too fat for me.
