We use inexpensive pillows due to dust mite allergies - this allows us the luxury of tossing them and getting new ones every 6 months. These pillows hold up for the 6 months quite well, but can't say they would for a full year. Just my opinion
I bought these based on the many positive reviews. I was still hesitant because the price seemed too good to be true, but this is one case, where it was not. I added zipped pillow liners under my pillow cases to ensure that I wouldn't have any wayward feathers stick out. I slept like a baby the first night and have continued to for the past month since I bought these. I highly recommend these pillows.
I was hesitant to buy pillows I couldn't touch first hand. For the price of these I felt it was worth the risk. Very high quality and super comfortable!! Don't pass this deal up if you are a lover of all things feather for your bed! I also have a heavy down comforter and a large feather bed (Super snooze five inch 230 thread count baffled feather bed, purchased at same time) on top of our pillow top mattress. And I literally sink into my bed. I love super soft comfy cozy beds and this has been a wonderful experience. Worst part is getting out of it!!
