Even though I love my very soft down pillows I needed more support especially when reading or watching television in bed. I purchased one Candice Olson European Goose Feather and Down Pillow just for myself to see how I liked it, thinking if didn't I could always give it to my husband who isn't as picky as I am. :-) This pillow has just the right kind of firmness although at first I thought it was too firm. Now that I've been using it for two weeks it has softened up a bit but is still firm enough to help keep me supported in bed with my other very soft pillow. I've given up using my ultra soft down pillow and use this one exclusively for sleep. My husband now wants one too so I just ordered another. The pillow protector that comes with it is lovely, and has a nice baffle around the edges. I'm a back and side sleeper and this pillow works well with either position. If you're a 'scruncher' this pillow does scrunch but won't go flat.

I love these down pillows because they are truly a medium firm. I have a herniated disk in my neck and need a firmer pillow for support.

Nice pillows ... medium / soft firmness is what I prefer and they deliver this level of comfort. They do however "crinkle" a little and I've seen a few feathers. I still feel the value is present.

This sounded like a good deal in spite of the warnings from other reviewers. Well it wasn't. They forgot to put the feathers in the cases. Medium firm was the rating-- that must have meant four feathers--barely enough to provide a covering to the entire inside. Save your money and order something else--maybe you wil get something other than horse feathers. For t hose of you too young for the Marx brothers, next time get the real thing.

these are medium firmness, but my husband thinks they are too soft, every person has their preference to that "feel": when you you put your head down for the night and these didn't stay @ medium, they just went too soft for his head. I think they are nice to curl around.

The pillow was advertised as medium firm. However, it is way too soft. I would not recommend buying this pillow if you are looking for a medium firm pillow as it is not.

Great value for a down pillow. Very comfortable with medium firmness. I sleep every which way and it is comfotable for back, side or tummy sleeping.

Comfy down pillows but they do make a little "crinkly" noise when you move on them. My husband likes an almost flat down pillow and this one is not for him but this is the medium firmness I prefer.

Pillow has little support for a medium fill.Softer than my daughters' soft fill down pillow.We'll try the firm fill.Hate to be so disappointed and spend the money on returning a product.

I shopped around for my first down comforter and was surprised to see that this set cost about half of what department stores charge for a down comforter alone. I like that this is a comforter set with 2 down pillows, which goes great with my duvet cover set with 2 pillow shams that I also purchased on Overstock.com. The comforter is made of 100% down so there are no feathers sticking out. I used to sleep with 2-3 thick blankets, which would sometimes fall off my bed, but this comforter alone was enough to keep me warm at night. It's also lightweight enough that I can move and breathe. I love how it drapes over the edges and stays in place while I sleep. This also means less time spent making the bed in the morning. The baffle box construction is supposed to keep the down evenly distributed, but I have noticed some thinner see-through squares. I would rather have medium-to-firm support so I use the down pillows for display only. This is just a matter of personal preference, and I knew what I was buying. Even without the pillows, the comforter alone is worth the price. These aren't huge problems to me since I got great value for my money.

These pillows are exactly what you should expect for the price. You have to remember that these are feather pillows, not down, so they will have a little bit of crunch to them. That said, they fluff nicely, are medium-firm and very comfortable. Great buy!

I've had this pillow for a few weeks now and I like it pretty well. Your head does sink into it and it feels wonderful, just not quite the medium firmness I would've liked. It doesn't let you head sink completely flat, but a little bit more than I wanted. It does fluff back up almost immediately. Overall, it is a VERY nice pillow, one of the best Down I've ever purchased.

I was hoping to get a medium firm down pillow. These are not that, they are not firm at all. For the cost you can get better pillows than these at Ikea. Good luck.

The "medium-firm" is inaccurate. These are very nice soft pillows. But if you're looking for medium to firm as I was then this isn't it.

I've previously bought circle of down pillows elsewhere. Expected these to be the same -- firm in the middle, soft on the outsides. After a couple of hours these pillows squish flat to only a few inches. I've had to add a third pillow to my normal two to get the height I need. If you're looking for a medium or firm feather pillow -- don't buy these.

When I finally received the pillow and used it the first time, it kept my head up so high that I thought I might have to return it. After using it for a few days it " softened up " a little. Now, it is perfect for me. I am a side and belly sleeper and I really like the pillow. It does not flattened out like a " soft " or " medium " down pillow. There was no smell when I removed the plastic covering. I was able to use the pillow the very same night.

These are great pillows, and definitely a good value, but I wouldn't consider them "medium firmness". They are very fluffy and reshape nicely, but your head sinks all the way to the bottom. They are very well made and do not seem to be at any risk of leaking feathers like some other pillows we have owned.
