I was alittle disappointed in these. They are comfortable, but think I could have found the same type of pillows at a discount store. The covering is average with nothing to mark it as a famous maker pillow. I found them okay and the price was good, but don't expect visual quality. They are still new so I can't attest to how well they will last, and/or retain shape and comfort.

I have been looking for new pillows for the last year. Have bought several and after a couple nights on them have been unhappy. I was leery about buying more new pillows, but after reading the reviews decide to give them a try. And, I am so glad that I did. They are firm, yet let¿s your head sink into them for total comfort.

I am always on the search for the most comfortable pillow. I get a neck ache if they are too firm and too high. I like a flat type pillow. These pillows are borderline okay, although I have more negative input than positive. I don't like regular down pillows, so I wanted the alternative down. I sink down too much in these pillows, like they failed to put in enough stuffing for a queen size pillow, and then my hair would get all hot and sweaty during the night. I have made this my hugging pillow and it is fine for that. I do not feel like it offers any type of support for my head/neck unless I have another pillow beneath it. I should have had a clue when it said "Famous maker.....but yet did not identify that famous maker. It is National Sleep Products, whom I personally have never heard of before, but that does not mean they are not famous somewhere. My husband said he dislikes the pillow totally.

These are the best pillows in the world. They are so comfy, soft and squishy. You can mold them however you want and they don't lift up at the ends. My family and I have purchased a total of 22 of these pillows. If I couldn't get them anymore, I would be heartbroken!

This was my 1st purchase from Overstock.com and I am very impressed! I have always purchased down comforters that were high end 400 thread count or higher with a 50 oz. or higher down content. Recently I had to give up the down when I found out I have asthma. I tried a famous maker down alternative and didn't have a very good experience with it. When this comforter arrived, I couldn't believe how nice it was! So soft to the touch giving you the comfy- cozy feeling that a good down comforter gives you. I am hoping that it will wash and wear as well as everyone else has said it does.

These are advertised as "Famous Maker" but when I received them, they had absolutely no manufacturers label on them. I've had these a few weeks now. At first they were really firm but have softened up now. They don't get flat after laying on them all night. They're just right. I got the queen size and they fit in my standards cases just fine.

Recently bought a new mattress and needed a new mattress pad to take the edge off the new mattress and bought this one. What a dissapoint..was made nicely good quality but for the added comfort needed not there. Very flat a doubled towel would have offered more comfort. And as for the "made in Usa" label...don't believe it either it is packaged in the USA stuffing comes from the USA, possibly assembled in the USA but the cover casing comes from an imported source. Last time I checked we had textile factories in the USA. When I buy USA I expect it to be made in the USA. And the famous maker on the title is Lands End.

Very comfy, and the elastic bands hold it in place nicely.

This is a good quality product. Believe the price is good for the quality.

unfortunately this very plush topper moves to either side of the body, leaving the sleeper in a deep valley but no more comfortable. We exchanged it for a different topper.

Fluffy, puffy, mushy, unevenly filled. It's soft and fairly comfortable, but after one week, the fiberbed has deep impressions where we sleep. I can't see this topper lasting too long. Unhappy with this purchase.

This topper is more like a deluxe mattress pad. I did not want anything plush or thick, and this topper is just great. I sleep on a very firm foam mattress, and this is just the amount of extra I needed to not feel the bedframe under the mattress, which is just under 8" thick. The topper is Land's End, high quality and has a nice cottony feel. Feels like a down comforter and I did wash it in an upright whirlpool and dried it on permanent press just fine. I did not have to take it to a commercial side loading machine. Mine is a queen size so I can't say a king would have fit. High quality, and I am in my late 50's and am very fussy. This says it's waterproof as well, and you would never know it by feel. It feels like it's all cotton, and I am very pleased. Delivery was prompt, I got it within a week.

This product appears to be well made. It is comfortable to sleep on and I have already recommended it to a friend.

If you just want a "little" softness added, it is ok. I liked the way it had straps to hold it in place and we still kept it. It only gets an average rating from me because I was expecting more of a "sink in" quality for the thickness.

It fits the mattress very nicely and is very comfortable. Needs to be fluffed constantly otherwise it leaves a body imprint..

This was my first time shopping with Overstock and I was just shocked when I got my order. It was not what I ordered in that the item was not what was pictured. Moreover the pillows were so flat that I would not allow anyone to sleep on it. They were insulting and I just returned them and got a credit. I have to say that the rep who chatted with online was EXCELLENT. He was helpful and overall patient with my feelings. I was so angry but now I have calm down. Mistakes happen all the time and I do not want to suggest Overstock is the problem. However, I am not sure if there is a "quality control" person who oversees the items being shipped because in my case that person should have noticed the pillows sent to me were 30% filled that is how flat they were. Anyway..I do not want to send anyone the wrong idea but I think I would order something from Overstock again, if I found something I needed and liked.

So many reviews say "best pillows I've ever slept on!" without explaining WHY that is. Since pillows are so personal, and it's hard to buy them online, I'm going to try my best to explain why I love them. I bought these over a set that I'd previously purchased (Splendorest Angelsoft 220TC) in order to try something new, even though there were no reviews (yikes!). So glad I did! They are far better in quality and feel, and unlike the Splendorest, these are much softer and far less crunchy. Hopefully they won't collapse and separate like the other set, either. I have high hopes so far. When I lay on these pillows, they cradle my head and allow me to sink in, but only about halfway. They are very cottony, squishy and cloudlike, yet hold their shape well and spring back right away. If you're looking for a firm, stiff pillow, this isn't it...though they're still fine for side or back sleeping. I slept on my stomach with these and did not wake up with back pain! It's just a great all around pillow that gave me the best night of sleep. I purchased these along with two real down pillows that were more expensive and actually prefer these! I definitely plan to purchase more for the rest of the family. I've finally found the perfect pillow!
