The great thing about these pillows is that you don't have annoying feathers popping through the cloth and waking up with a scratch on your face in the morning. I wish I would have ordered the firm instead of medium, they're a bit too mushy but overall a good value. Also, I didn't experience any unpleasant odors: even right out of the box which was a plus. Didn't wash these yet but will post an update when I do.
I purchased a set of these a year ago for our bed and this set for the guest bed. this set does not have the same quality of material, the same level of support and are not nearly as comfortable. I love the first set but am very, very disappointed with the second set.
We bought these for our guests and have had several comments about the comfort of the pillows. It is hard to find a pillow to meet everyone's needs, but these seem to do the trick. When I took them out of the box, there was quite a bit of down alternative on the outside of the pillow. I used a roller brush and removed it...
Just bought a new King size bed and was dreading the amount of money I'd have to spend on all bedding items including pillows. But these were a great find. They are very stuffed which makes them hard to sleep on if you are a back sleeper, but they fill out a King size bed nicely. I still use my ergonomic pillow instead of these.
