I was reluctant to purchase these pillows because there were no reviews yet, but I decided to take a chance. Am I glad I did! I just slept on the pillow last night and could not believe how soft yet firm the pillow was. Usually with a down pillow, I'm always having to fluff the pillow during the night, but not with this pillow -- it stayed soft and firm all night. I'm a side sleeper and this pillow worked perfect for me. I think it's a great price too -- for a pillow like this, I would expect to pay a much higher price I HIGHLY recommend these pillows to anyone.
There is a "smell" to them, that is driving me crazy! I thought it was body odor, but it's not. I changed the pillow cases many times and it's still there. I love how they feel, but can't stand the smell. Maybe it will go away with time????
These are the best pillows ever! I'm a side-sleeper and cannot believe the difference in my sleep quality sleeping on these. I plan to purchase more and doubt I will ever use anything else. Great price too. Others are twice as much with the same design.
Love these pillows! I am very picky about my pillows & these were just right! They did not have the odor they warn you about. Smells like down feathers. They provide directions on how to fluff them once out of the package but I found a few quick hits to a hard surface works just fine. I dont think you'll be disappointed.
I use these as decorative/body pillows. The feathers stay in place, and I don't experience any odors. I've had them for over a year now. Over time, I've noticed that the inner pillow of feathers shift and pull in the corners of the whole pillow itself. Not a huge concern since all you have to do is readjust them and you're well on your way for a good night's rest.
The pillows arrived promptly and fluffed up nicely after I took them out of the packaging. They are very full and fill up a queen sized pillow case. I sleep on my side and stomach, so I really appreciate how adaptable these pillows are. The specs say there's a central core, but I have never felt any lumpiness in them. So far, no feathers have escaped, but I've had them less than a month. Very happy with them -- good value, and a good price.
The pillows are good. Not to plump and not to thin. They do NOT have any poke you feathers. They do have the feather pillow smell. I have had them for about 3 weeks the smell is starting to fade. They are still nice and fluffy. I like them.
The smell of these pillows is awfull. It burned the nose and eyes. Also they were crunchy not sure if it was the feathers in the pillow or the fabric. They were also suppose to be med/soft but they were more med/hard.I am returning these
I am extremely picky about my pillows. I have been through several Pacific Coast Heavenly bed style pillows where I've been happy in the beginning but they don't seem to last very long. So far, with these pillows at this price, I am very happy and will buy more. I did not experience any issues with odor or flattening when I received them. Highly recommended from a picky pillow person. My husband loves them too. He is a back sleeper, I am a stomach sleeper so your mileage may vary depending on your preferred sleeping position.
When you put your head on this pillow it goes almost completely flat. My boyfriend complained it made him feel like his head was in the middle of a taco. We both like firm pillows with extra loft. These are not that kind of pillow. These might work well for someone who wanted a very flat pillow to begin with but not for us. If you are a side sleeper stay away from this set.
