I would only recommend if they liked sleeping with their head up in the air. I was persuade by other reviewers who complained about the pillows not being firm enough to buy this pillow. For my liking, it id way too firm. I like my head to sink into the pillow. As far as I am concerned, that's what down pillows are for. If you do not like your head to sink in, don't buy down!

Terrific pillow and so much better than the Tommy Bahama duo I purchased from O a few months ago. I was thrilled to see options for different levels of firmness when I was deciding whether to purchase. I chose the King Extra Firm and proceeded with my order. Having already tried it and having slept through the night, I found that the pillow that was supposed to be "extra firm" is by no means firm at all. However, it is heavier, it has good density and, being feather and down, is certainly of much higher quality than I had been using in the past.

These pillows are nice quality with superior covers. However, there is some discrepancy in how much fill they contain. We ordered the "firm" option and it really isn't. Wish we had gone up to the extra firm for more fill and better support.

bought the extra firm and they are too firm -- like a rock -- and too heavy -- they weigh a ton. I should have returned them.

This is definitely for side sleepers. The pillow will not sink down or need refluffing throughout the night. Still it is soft against your face. It may be a bit high if you roll over onto your back, so may be too firm for side+back use.

The pillows are firm and full of 75% goose down. They are very comfortable and exactly what I desired. You will not be disappointed. There was no odor although I aired them out before I put them in pillow protectors and then in their pillowcases.

This pillow is quite firm for a goose down fill, though not firm enough for me. I found that my head would sink half-way into it and that is a problem. I need to have my head rest quite high. It is comfortable and gently cradles one's head, so it should please many looking for a moderate amount of support.

They had no bad odor after a day in a room with a fresh air source and the occasional fluff. They are very plump and well constructed. I am a side sleeper and can get just the right comfort to sleep or prop myself up for a book. I purchased the King size and up to now am very pleased that I made the purchase.

I was really looking forward to these pillows and must say I am disappointed. When an advertisement states "white goose down pillow" that is what I expect. That is not what I got. The tag says "Downlite, finest quality, expert craftsmanship, minimum 75% white goose down" and these are indeed "lite" on the down. There is nothing exceptional about them, they are ok, but the texture and feel of the pillow tells me there is at least 25% feathers in there and that is not what I was looking for. And there are little prickly things poking thru the cover. Now what to do with them? I won't put something in the guest room that I wouldn't use myself. My dog is looking hopeful

Hard as a rock. No sensation of sinking down into a lovely goose down pillow. Husband liked they are as hard as a rock. Pillows also had a mild odor, and not a good one. Hubby and guests can use them.

These pillows are great....I've ordered down pillows before from overstock, this time decided to go with the higher fill for a longer lasting pillow. These however are just a bit firmer than what i expected, but still extremely comfortable. One trick i've learned it a good way to fluff up the pillow after you take it out of the box is to put it in the dryer on air fluff/..NO HEAT for 10 minutes and WOW! Good rule of thumb would be to do this every month or so and you will always get extra life out of you down. I think these pillows had a 700+ fill but seeing how firm they are you can really get by with 650 if you prefer a little softer feel.

A little more firm than I like but then it did say "firm". Love down pillows and they last for years so worth the money. Love that it's machine washable.

I bought one, and was very skeptical because I have purchased more expensive down pillows and was unsatisfied. This pillow blew me away with how firm it was for being down. In fact, the maker of this pillow is the same as one I ordered from a very exclusive site that sells only high-quality items. I had ordered both around the same time, and promptly returned the non-Overstock item and then ordered three more! Love these pillows!

Great pillows and worth the money !! They keep their shape and are firm but not so much that you can't sink your head down and get comfortable. They are much better than the last goose down pillows that I bought. I would recommend these to anyone who wants a great firm and comfortable pillow !

I am VERY particular about pillows. I have bought and returned several pillows over the past few years looking for the perfect firmness since I am both a side and back sleeper. I ordered two of these in the queen size and they are as near to perfect in firmness and loft that I believe I will ever get. They fluff extremely well with minimal shaking and are the firmest goose down pillows I've ever felt. They are still very soft and easy to melt into. Great buy for the price considering the amount of down in each pillow. Department stores usually charge 2 or 3 times as much for duck down pillows. In writing this, I'm actually thinking I should purchase a couple more to put away for later use.

I haven't used the product. I sent it to my wife who works in the Chicago market. She is particularly fussy about her pillows. I sent her these and she said it's the best sleep she's had in many weeks.

I haven't purchased a down pillow in years, because they usually are so soft that they flatten down during the night and don't provide enough head support. I tried one firm goose down pillow from another vender before buying this one, and it was so hard it made my ear hurt after sleeping on it. This one has turned out to be great for me. It is without a doubt firm - packed with feathers. If it was any firmer, it woudl be too much for me. If I push my palm firmly down on the top of the pillow towards the mattress, there is about 4" of pillow remaining between the top of the pillow and the mattress. The feathers don't stick through, and the cotton cover is high quality. I wasn't 100% sold after the first night, but now I am and I'll definitely keep it. If you are looing for a goose down pillow with substance, this may be the perfect one for you!
When shopping for a new bed pillow, all the options that are available might seem overwhelming. From contoured to memory foam, the market has become flooded with bed pillows for all types of sleepers. Navigating the vast jungle of bedding means looking at the material, size and firmness. If you're trying to figure out which firmness is right for you, these frequently asked questions about bed pillow firmness might help.
If you're shopping for a new mattress, then you're about to make an important decision. You spend anywhere from six to nine hours each night in your bed, and your mattress can affect the quality of your sleep and overall well-being. Follow these instructions to pick the right mattress set for a perfect night's sleep.
There are basically three common types of mattresses used today: spring mattresses, memory foam mattresses, inflatable mattresses and feather beds. Each type has its own benefits. A mattress pad is a less expensive way to add comfort to your bed than purchasing a whole new mattress. With that said, if your mattress is lumpy or saggy, a mattress topper probably won't make much difference. If it is good, though, you have many different choices in material, price, and comfort. Whatever you get, just make sure you purchase the right size for your bed frame. Take a look below to learn more about the best-selling mattresses on the market.
Have you ever stayed up too late just because your bed didn't seem very inviting? Is the bedding in your dreams better than the place where you do the dreaming? A comfortable bed is easier to have than you may expect. With the right pieces, you can make your bedding more inviting -- so you'll be excited to go to bed.
A great night's rest is one of the best ways to have a great day, which is why the comfort of your bed is so important. Ensuring its comfort is a simple process, so there should be no excuse for restless nights. If you feel like your bed isn't as enjoyable as it should be, try following these steps. It may not take much to improve your sleep.
The quality of your sleep affects your health and your day, which is why shopping for a mattress should be taken seriously. Mattresses come in a wider variety of sizes, materials, and construction than ever before, which means it's easier to find one that's just right for you. However, having so many options can make it a little confusing. Learning about the different mattresses that are available can simplify your decision and help you find just the right bed.
When it comes to entertaining out-of-town guests, the last thing you should have to worry about is where to house them for the night. If the thought of breaking out your leaky old air mattress or uncomfortable pull-out couch is causing nightmares, you may want to think about investing in a portable Air Cloud air mattress.
Air mattresses aren't what they used to be. Nowadays, air mattresses offer a slew of sleep-inducing features, like pillow tops, memory foam mattress pads and even built in MP3s, vastly improving on their giant-sized, pool-toy predecessors. As features improve, air mattresses, also known as air beds, are becoming more and more popular and are being used for a number of different functions, even in place of regular mattresses. Keep reading to find out the top five ways that you can get the most out of your air mattress.
