Thick pillows, slightly firm with lots of soft cushiness!! Can be bunched up or used flat and it only takes one pillow for me to be comfortable. I love these pillows and highly recommend them. I sleep both on my back and side, and these are comfortable in both positions.
So happy with these pillows I just ordered a second set. They are perfectly soft and fluffy and supportive of my neck. They are stuffed rather full, so I needed to work a little to fit a standard pillow into a standard case. I'm just thrilled with my improved quality of sleep. I'm a side sleeper and sleep on my stomach -- can't make a recommendation for a back sleeper because I wouldn't know.
These are great quality. Haven't washed them so I can't speak to that. The king size ones are about 14" high and sink to about 8-9" when you rest your head on them. They are not firm. There was a very slight odor when new but a quick wipe with a fragrant cleaner neutralized that, so they didn't need washing. I am happy with these as side pillows or back pillows but I prefer 6" really firm ones to sleep on.
These are nice pillows. My old ones were long over due for being replaced. I didn't want to get the cheap ones offered by the bin full at the superstores. I used O's information on buying tips for pillows, then chose these. They are very nice. More importantly, they provide a nice nights sleep. They were a good choice for me. I would choose them again.
We've had these pillows a couple of weeks. They're still pretty full, but over time they are going to deplete in loftiness(what pillow doesn't though?). I love love love them, and my daughter was disappointed that she wouldn't be getting them. She loved them too!
