I bought this set of pillows to accompany the featherbed I bought my fiance for Christmas. I have my own set of down pillows at my house and he absolutely LOVES them...so I figured it would be a perfect gift! I was disappointed when I received these pillows though (he says they are fine, just not quite as comfortable as mine). The are a decent size (I bought the Queen ones), but as soon as you lay on them after puffing them up...they go flat and pretty much stay that way. They are "crunchy" and loud and not NEARLY as comfortable as the pillows I own. I am HOPING that we will be able to "break them in" after a year or so of use. I just don't remember mine being this way when I first got them! They make a nice set of "starter down pillows" or a good set for a kid's bed...but I wouldn't recommend them to anyone who's looking for a really good set of down pillows!
I purchased these pillows after seeing them in a store. I loved what I saw. But....after receiving them, I was very disappointed. They feel like a cheap feather pillow. Where is the down? It feels like the feathers will come through and be very uncomfortable. I purchased them after reading the reviews. Did I receive the wrong pillows? The ones I received were nothing like the other reviews.
I'm overweight and I had trouble getting comfortable in bed. I had a variety of pillows theorizing I'd always find one that felt right. I wasn't sleeping well so I went pillow shopping and found the "circle of down" design and a great deal at Overstock. I bought four and liked them so much I bought four more. Now I have 8 pillows all the same and I sleep so well. These pillows are firm when I want firm and soft when I want soft. They're great! So if you're an extreme sleeper like me, get these pillows.
These pillows looked great out of the box but when I actually used them, I felt like there was no pillow at all. My head immediately sank to the mattress. They were definitely not the quality that was advertised. Also, I spent 1/3 of the cost just to return them. Sorry to say, this in my first disappointing Overstock purchase.
After reading all the great reviews I decided to order these. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed in this purchase. These pillows offer no support--when you put your head down on them it just sinks right to the mattress. I felt as though I did not even have a pillow under my head. One positive is that the fabric quality is great. I would not purchase pillows online again.
After we spent a night at a four star hotel with great down bedding, my husband was hooked. I purchased these pillows in hopes that they would compare. They did. Now the rest of my family keeps trying to steal our pillows. They fluffed up beautifully, have no unpleasant odor, and are heaven on your neck regardless of the position you sleep in. I remember feather pillows we had when I was a kid - they went flat rather quickly, made crunchy noises and periodically poked you in the face through the cover. NOT THESE! I thought I didn't like feather pillows, but now I'll have trouble sleeping on anything else. Thanks for a great deal on a great product.
I was a little leary buying pillows of the internet, especially at this price. I got them in the mail about 5 minutes ago and they are fantastic! I pulled them out of the box, they fluffed right up. I layed down on one and its heaven! It is so big and fluffy. I am ordering another set right now!
I love the idea of getting 4 matching pilows for such a great price. I agree with the other reviews: the pillows are nicely soft and hypo-allergenic. My one area of disappointment - the pillows are under-filled to the point where after a while I can almost feel the mattress under my head, as if I was lying down without a pillow at all. Doubling up the pillows helps - but since I double anyway, I now need 3 of these pillows to get my neck comfortable.
Recieved pillows, and I forgot that you must fluff the pillows after you take them out of the box. I was disapointed until I fluffed, then I saw a great product that I knew i would be happy with. the pillows are great, thanks overstock for another great product. I have not been disapointed yet. I will continue to tell everyone I meet about the great deals you have.
