After buying serveral different king size pillows, I finally found these fabulous down pillows. My husband was suffering from a stiff neck when these pillows were delivered. He loves his and no more stiff neck. These pillows plump up very easily. Love the down. No sharp quills polking through.
I was a bit hesitant about purchasing this pillow since there were a number of critical reviews that seemed valid. I did purchase it because the price was reasonable for the description of the pillow. Overall, it is a very nice pillow and so far, I am satisfied with my purchase. I think that it will be difficult to write if it is too stiff or too soft since they are rather subjective terms. However, having said that, I will try anyway. The fabric of the pillow cover itself is very durable and thick-- something I was expecting based on the product description and was happy when I discovered it was true. The pillow itself is full when fluffed. It doesn't take much time to get it fully fluffed but it does deflate quite quickly when you put any pressure on it. I was hoping there would be more fill but it's fine. I sleep with two pillows and it is pretty comfortable.
These pillows are very full and far from flat even after a full nights rest. I can barely get them into my king sized pillow case, they require a bit of shoving and shaking to get them in, very full and generously filled with down! No odor problems with my two purchased at all. Well worth the money. Some of the other pillows say 700 fill power but you look at how much they weigh and it's less than these pillows because these pillows are filled as advertised!
I had a hard time making my decision about which down pillows I wanted -- they are an investment and for that kind of money you had better like them. My 2 pillows came in small box, very flat and with somewhat of an odor. I threw them in the dryer separetely with 6 clean tennis balls for about 20 minutes on the air only setting. They came out fluffy, soft, and with no smell. For a down pillow they are firm ( your head doesn't sink down to the mattress.) I'm a side/stomach sleeper and needed more neck support while I watched TV. At first I thought they were too hard, but I soon realized they were just what I needed for a good nights sleep with no neck/shoulder pain in the morning. I would buy these again in a heartbeat. Excellent value.
I was in the market for new pillows. I used to sleep on down but somehow ended up not using down for quite a while. I work in the health field and know that down pillows can be good for your neck. I move a round a bit when I sleep so I need a pillow that is comfortable when I sleep on my back or on my side. After researching a lot of down pillows I decided on this one. I purchased two queen sized pillows and I couldn't be happier. I love the way they fluff up when I sleep on my side and compact when I sleep on my back. The stitching and material is top notch. I highly recommend this pillow. I did not have any odor problems when I opened up the pillows.
The pillows came in quick and I had to let them sit and air out. They do stink quite a bit but were fine after a couple of days. I don't know where they get the 1000 thread count from because they don't feel that soft. Who cares anyway when you put a pillow case over them. The are as described and are quite comfortable.
Nowhere on the description does it state that this product is not 100% down filled. The actual pillow label says " All new material consisting of white goose down (minimum 75% down)".What else is in there? Whatever it is, it makes it puffier, so that it doesn't sink down as much as down would. If I wanted a pillow that didn't act like down I would have ordered a "down alternative" pillow. For this money I expect 100% down fill. If you want a pillow that retains its shape better than down, doesn't sink all the way down and gives more support, this is it. The seams are nicely sewn and the cover seems nice, 100% cotton.
The pillows smell like a wet sheep dog. It is over powering. The whole bedroom stinks! I left them outside for a week, put them on air fluff in the dryer for an hour, still no change. Right now they are at the dry cleaners, (they claim they can fix it) for another $15 each. Also they collapse and become very thin, I defintely need to put two together in one pillow case to make them work. Overall, bad deal!
The pillows are terrible! I lay on my side and sink to the top of my mattress right through them. Hard outter cover makes it impossible to literally punch the down back to underneath my head. I tried using three at a time, for height, but its like sleeping on a bean bag pillow, eventually-before I fall asleep-I am buried in the middle of two down mountains and lying only on the three hard covers. My neck hurts, my jaw hurts and I'm not sleeping well at all. just so you cant say nobody told you....
We are very happy with our purchase of these pillows. The cover is thick and so soft and the pillow supports your neck and head well. It is very comfortable too. I shopped around and found these pillows to be great value. I would definately buy them again.
I PURCHASED THESE PILLOWS LOOKING FOR A HIGH QUALITY DURABLE PILLOW. I FOUND THESE FIT THE BILL TO A GREAT EXTENT. ONLY THING I DON'T LIKE IS THEY ARE NOT HARD ENOUGH FOR MY PERSONNAL PREFERANCE. BUT OTHER THAN THAT THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY AND I WOULD SUGGEST THEM TO ANYONE.
This is the second pillow I bought from Overstock.I read all the reviews and don't know why anyone would complain! These are filled and do not loose the firmness when sleeping on them. I love these pillows and for the money they are fantastic ! Keep up the good sales !
I 've never slept so good! This pillows are expensive but they make up for the price by the way they feel. A word of caution, these pillows are extremely soft. if you like more firmer pillows these are not for you. Its good to combine them with a more firmer pillow to balance out your comfort level. Also the pillows absorb your body heat and can get really warm, especially if there are two people in bed. :) Turn up your air con. just a little before going to bed in the summer, and you 'll sleep all through the night.
