I purchased a set of medium and a set of soft king and updated the bed in my house and at a furnished rental. I am pretty picky about pillows (says my husband), and I loved both sets. I put two med & two soft on our bed and really noticed a difference. The soft are not nearly as soft as you would see in a $100/pillow soft down. If you are looking for the type of soft that you can fold twice or smoosh into a small ball, these are not for you. I have one of those and I couldn't bear to give it to goodwill with the rest of my pillows, but in the month that I've had these, I've not used the old, worn, beloved down pillow even once. These overstock pillows were good to go right out of the box - no need to air them out - no funny smells. They are very puffy when sitting on the bed, but they smoosh down nicely when you lay your head on them. I sleep a combination of side & back. Both firmness levels are great, but I have developed a preference for the soft one. It tucks nicely under my neck while still supporting my head when lying on my back and allowing a comfortable neutral spine. Absolutely zero problems with either of these pillows and I usually reject new pillows within one-two nights.
The pillows are squishy - I don't know how else to describe them. I ordered the firm , but they are not like other firm pillows that I have. It works well for us, but if you want a truly firm pillow (rock hard), do not get this. I think because they are "down alternative," they are intended to feel more like a down pillow would. So if that is what you are looking for, these are perfect. The firm pillows are pretty full so even if your head sinks in a bit, it doesn't become completely flattened like a real down pillow would. These are good pillows, but you just need to be aware of what you are buying.
If you're a definite side sleeper, I recommend firm or extra firm - these are the most wonderful heavenly pillows of softness and comfort ever. I roll around from my side to my back, so the amount of softness and support in the mediums were perfect for me. All the reviews about how lovely these are - completely correct. :) I love these pillows.
These are the greatest pillows I ever slept on. I have bought pillows for $60.00 a piece that did not feel this good. At this price it is almost like I got two free pillows. They cradle to my head so well that I would have thought you made these specifically for me. I like the four pack too because now I have great pillows all over my house. I plan to get more and I am going to tell all my friends about these.
First, let me say that I had to try three different firmness levels of these pillows to get "dialed in" to the right ones for me. Fortunately I was able to return the pillows that were uncomfortable for a refund (minus the shipping costs). I have used down pillows in the past, but none seemed quite firm enough for me. As a stomach sleeper I found the "Firm" down alternative pillows too unforgiving, even after reading other reviews that said the firm pillows were too soft. After realizing the firm pillows were WAY too firm for my liking, I went the total opposite direction and tried the "Soft" pillows. Initially I thought these would work well, but I quickly found my head was in a "hole" with no padding under it. There just didn't seem to be enough filling in the pillow to actually cushion my head when I slept. Finally, I tried the "Medium" fill pillow. WE HAVE A WINNER! This firmness was soft enough to accomodate my sleeping position, yet provided enough fill material I did not feel like my head was unupported. With four pillows I can have the same pillows in my motorhome as I do on my bed at home. The only thing I would like to see is an option of ordering two different firmness levels so people who like different types of pillows might be accomodated. Other than that, the quality of the pillows is excellent and I look forward to years of comfort. Unlike what was mentioned in a few other reviews, I noticed no unusual smells with these new pillows.
I bought these solely based on the positive reviews here and could not be happier with my purchase. I bought the firm. Anything less than firm would have been too mushy. To me the firm is closer to medium in another pillow type. Glad I did not get the medium because that would have been closer to a soft. I do not think I will ever buy anything else but these pillows in the future.
I have mixed feelings about these pillows...mostly good, but some disappointment too. I've had them for quite a while--probably 2 years--and am just now ready to toss them. I have thrown them in the washer MANY times (more than 10), dried them in the dryer or on the clothesline, and it's now, after so long and so many washes, they're starting to be clumpy, squishy (not in a good way) and impossible to find a comfortable position on. That said... These are probably the best pillows I have ever--or will ever--own. My only complaint is that they don't last forever! I have 2 king size and 2 queen size as well as 3 Euro pillows. All are terrific. You won't be sorry, I think!
I bought these pillows after looking at TJMaxx and finding only overpriced pillow. All I can say is WOW... I bought the firm jumbo. All I can say is if you like a soft firm pillow that gives support this is it! I was surprised some people wrote complaints, They are both soft and firm! Sleeping so soundly now. :-)
I LOVE these pillows. I was hooked on down after my first down pillow because I loved how squishy and moldable they are. However, I got sick of spending over 100$ for one pillow when they need to be replaced fairly often. I started trying different down alternatives and to my surprise found I prefer down-alternative to the real thing. I thought these were a little pricey for down-alt but have to say they are so worth it. They are very full and fluffy and super soft and squishy but still provide great support. I tend to sleep on both my stomach and side and they are comfortable in either position. The kind size are BIG, they fill out shams nicely and look great on my big bed.

A friend suggested I try these pillows. We had many guests for the Thanksgiving holiday and everyone raved on how comfortable and terrific their sleep was because of them. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for well priced pillows with an extraordinary value, and 5 star comfort.
I've converted to down alternative pillows over the past year or so and really enjoy the squishy loft they provide. I like some support but definitely don't care for foam (even shredded or memory foam) as it's too firm for my taste. I purchased this 4-pack as backup for guests and we tested a pair when they arrived, and loved the comfort, so are still using them They also fluff up beautifully after sleeping on them, and haven't compressed as inexpensive feather pillows can do. Bargain price for a high-quality set of down alternative pillows, highly recommend if you're looking for a durable pillow that feels much like real down at a very affordable price point.
These pillows have held up very nicely. However, I wish I had read the reviews more thoroughly. Mediums are soft and squishy like a typical down pillow. If I were to order again I would definitely get the firm or extra firm for a bit more structure.
I ordered these pillows even though other reviewers mentioned how soft they were. I opened the package, felt one, and sealed it right back up. These "extra firm" pillows are the opposite of firm. However, if you are looking for comfy, soft, King size pillows these might work for you. It's a good deal on price.
These pillows are great. They are fluffy and soft, yet the medium really gives support. I am a side sleeper and with the these pillows I woke up without shoulder pain for the first time in months. I like them so much I am going to order another set for our seldom used guest room so if they are not available when the first set wears out, I will have them handy.
We went to Mexico and we just loved the pillows that were there!! I wrote down the website and needless to say it was all in Spanish and plus you couldn't order anyways. I tried all over and touch every pillow I came into contact. Finally I read the reviews and decided to try them. We are very happy with them. I am a person that sleeps on my side and then goes to my stomach..Very comfy, Soft!!!!! I have spent over $100.00 for a pillowI have had very good luck with everything I have bought from Overstock
