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!
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
Typically I buy $30 to $40 pillows and still never like them. I thought I would take my chances with this one, and I can say that so far, it is worth spending the extra money. I have neck problems, and this seems to help. I have been using the pillow for about two weeks now, and no complaints. It is a nice, thick and fluffy (not hard) pillow.
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 !
An extra firm down pillow at a discounted price. This pillow is truly "extra firm" as compared to less costly down pillows available here and elsewhere. The extra money gets you more goose down inside the pillow and 600 seems about right for the fill power. It compares favorably, altho not quite as good, as the more expensive 700 fill power offered by high end makers. In other words you'll probably never notice the difference except for the 1/3 cheaper price. This pillow is targeted at back and side sleepers only. Others will find it too hard. And so far my spouse says it's cut down on my snoring too. ;)
These are firm for down, well made, absolutely no feathers sticking out or poking in any way. Some people have said they are too firm but we only sleep on down pillows and truthfully they can be too soft at times requiring two pillows at all times. These are perfect and they do allow your head to ease into the softness without collapsing. I noticed one person said the sides went up when they laid on them but this is not happening for us. Best fill yet on any down we have owned. I only bought two to see how they were and I am ordering more!
I read some of the reviews before purchasing these pillows, since I am particular about our bed pillows, and I was not disappointed at all! These are the best pillows I have ever slept with, and it's rare for my husband to approve of any pillows before these arrived.
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 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.
I have never owned feather pillows before because I like a very firm pillow and am a side sleeper. Most of the feather pillows I've slept on at hotels and such were too flat for me. I took a chance on these pillows and I love them! They are firm and yet soft and pliable. They are really stuffed with feathers and the feathers don't pop out like other cheaper pillows I've used. My husband loves his too! If you like firm pillows and want a good firm feather pillow, I can't recommend these enough!
These pillows are super filled and look pretty on the bed but they are not for sleeping. They do support the head but the weight of the head poofs the ends up and thwarts breathing. I read all the reviews before purchasing and thought I was getting great sleeping pillows but that was not the case. My advice is keep looking!
I bought two of these pillows in King size. They did have a slight musty smell but nothing that a few minutes in the dryer couldn't get rid of. These pillows are as described.....extra firm. Filled to the max with feathers. We've had them a few weeks now and are getting use to them. Your head will not sink to the bottom. Lots of support. We had pretty flat pillows before, so these have really been quite a change. Great deal for the money....we were going to buy the High-End brand of pillows from Macy's but they were $360.00 each. These are very luxurious, comfortable and well worth the price. I would def buy these again.
