How anyone could give these any less than 5 stars is beyond me. These are THICK and FULL and plump and really wonderful. Yes, they have some feathers in them. They are not 100% down. I would not want 100% down Euro pillows. I need more body than that. The feathers give them body. I don't sleep on mine on a nightly basis because I bought them just for using to sit up and for decor. However I have fallen asleep on them and slept with them all night and they were very comfy. Maybe if you had really cheap thin shams the feathers MIGHT bother you, but I bought Ralph Lauren shams from Macy's and I don't feel the feathers at all. I almost did not get these because of the reviews from a couple people on here, but this is one of the best purchases I have made this year! I absolutely LOVE these pillows. They were completely plump about an hour after unpacking. Might not have even been that long. I highly recommend these pillows!
I bought a set of these for my home in LA about a year ago, and loved them. I just bought another set for my place in Chicago, and it was like buying a completely different product. The product that I just recieved is stuffed about half as much as the ones in my other place. These pillows have no loft and seem to be only partially filled. I tried leaning back on one and it felt like I was leaning against nothing at all. It's too bad that this company decided to cheat and not stuff the pillows as they did, because the old ones were great. These are simply not worth the price. I wouldn't buy. :(
I bought two of these Pillows and they are BEAUTIFUL! It took me months to finally purchase pillows online because if I didn't like them id have to pay big bucks to return them. So I took the risk and I LOVE THEM. They are amazing quality, VERY BIG and VERY FULL. You can somewhat feel the feathers in them, but it goes away with use. They are wonderful quality for the price. I just bought two more yesterday!
We bought a bedding set for our new bedroom that included "Euro-shams." This required us to buy square pillows. I bought these based on reviews I read online, saying they kept their shape and offered good support. They do! When I read before bed, this is the pillow I use to support by back, in conjunction with my own bed pillow. The "karate-chop" we create when we make up the bed in the morning lasts all day. We are very pleased with them.
I bought these pillows to replace the ones I had that were filled with synthetic poly fill. The old pillows were a bit hard and I wanted something softer so I ordered these down and feather ones. They are well made and are definitely softer than my old ones with the synthetic fill. They are a bit softer than I expected, but overall I am very satisfied with them.
