These pillows were too soft, would not stand up. If you want firm pillows for decorations, these are not what you are looking for. Sent them back. They appeared to be of good quality, just not what I was looking for. I should have paid attention to previous review.
So disappointed! The covers are 26"x26", as stated, but the filling is barely enough for a small standard pillow. Even after a good fluffing they remain limp, with too much air space. Fortunately, I can sew and I plan to plump them up with extra fiberfill so I can use the 26" square covers I had planned to put on them. But that shouldn't be necessary.
I purchased these for my bed. It's a queen sized bed -- I would recommend getting two sets as three of these pillows across the back is perfect. I keep the fourth on my couch, which works out perfectly for those evenings when I want to lounge while watching a movie. The pillows are very comfortable and fluff up nicely.
These are quality pillows. However, I bought them for decoration, for my bed, as the two main supportive Euro pillows behind the rest of my my pillows (3). Given that they are feather-filled, they don't hold their square shape very well, and need to be fluffed and reshaped a few times in order to look like the ones pictured. So, that's why I gave it 4 stars.
I wasn't very happy when I got these. In Overstocks defence, I did glance over the description that these are down-filled pillows. However, in my defence I made my decision based on the photo, which shows the pillows bascially standing on their own. So, I assumed these were full/thick, "pillow forms" that you use to stuff shams for decorative purposes, but they are not. They are the typical, non-shape holding down pillows. These are being used to stuff Euorpean Shams that are leaning/standing against a headboardbut they just dont do the trick. They don't hold their shape, they colpase into a pillow puddle! So, if you need a pillow-form to hold the shape of a sham for decorative purposes like you can get in other stores, don't get these. Also just as a side note -- these pillows are not stuffed very full -- they are really only about 1/2 to 2/3 full. So, again, the picture is completey inaccurate.
I ordered these pillows a few weeks ago. When they first got here they were so flat I thought that I made a bad choice. I got them for stuffing into decorator pillow shams. After a few days they plumped up, so they fit the job just right.
I was so tickled with these pillows, especially at the price that I paid for them! Two feather pillows for the price of what I could buy one for in stores! I couldn't pass it up. The pillows came quickly and well packaged and were everything the listing showed them to be. I ordered them for 26" euro shams without knowing exactly what size I would need. If I were doing it again I would get 28" or 30" pillows just so it fully stuffed and fluffed the shams I got, but that's no reflection of the pillows or the shams, it was just something you learn from experience.
Very comfy euro pillows. Soft feathers mean maximum comfort, and no strange smell like I've seen with some feather pillows in stores. I agree with other reviewers, though, if you are using strictly for looks, you may want to get a firmer pillow as these have to be fluffed repeatedly, and lose their shape very easily.
