I had ordered pillows in the past in about the same style and content and expected the same. However this one is just not as good as the ones I have ordered in the past. The down is not as fluffy and feels more like a feather pillow not down.
I have searched for years for the perfect pillow and have finally found it! I have tried regular foam, memory foam, polyester stuffed and other feather pillows to no avail. This pillow is just the right firmness. It does not let your head sink to the mattress as other feather pillows do even when they say firm. It forms a nice cushion around your head and does not hold it too high as some polyester pillows can do. There was no smell what so ever (as some people have stated) from this pillow and it fluffs back into shape nicely every morning.
I purchased this item a month ago. It is definitely very well made, but it's not necessarily good for sleep, at least not for me. This pillow doesn't help me sleep better. It's soft on the surface, so your head falls into it very easily, yet firm in the center, which means that this pillow does carry some weight of the head. However, I just couldn't sleep well on it.
when i could finally no longer stand waking up in the morning with a stiff neck from sleeping with my head at weird angles due to an old and overused pillow, i bought this one. it is beautiful, soft and firm and the same time, and i'm very pleased with it. going to bed and laying my head down is a pleasure and i'm looking forward to many nights of sleep for years to come. although some reviewers have complained about the smell, i did not notice this problem at all. in fact, when my pillow arrived, i fluffed it up and used it that very night and there was no noticeable odor. plus, overstock's prompt shipping was really nice. my pillow arrived exactly when i thought it would. a good buy, in my not-so-humble opinion.
HATED the odor when I opened the box & the pillows were VERY flat - but.........decided to give them a whirl in the dryer (air only).......plumped up so much I could barely get them out!! These pillows, though a bit pricey, are the BEST thing in my house! My husband doesn't even snore because he is so comfortable sleeping on them! GREAT purchase again from the "O"!!
I received these pillows a couple of weeks ago and I've got to say, they are the most comfortable pillows I've ever owned! They are big and extremely fluffy...but not too high! The cotton covering is very high thread count and so far, none of the down is coming through! I'd highly recommend these pillows to anyone that wants top of the line down pillows!
I HAVE HAD NECK PROBLEMS FOR YEARS. I'VE TRIED SEVERAL PILLOWS INCLUDING A DOWN PILLOW BUT IT DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH DOWN FOR NECK SUPPORT. THIS PILLOW DID THE TRICK. I CAN NOW SLEEP WITHOUT PAIN. I AM SO GLAD I TRIED IT. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT 100%.
I've been having neck aches for the last few years and thought perhaps a really good (and expensive) pillow would do the trick. Well this didn't. But this pillow is really nice. There was no smell as someone mentioned, but I did put it in the dryer right away with a fabric softener sheet as soon as I got it. It only takes a few minutes in the dryer and it expands as if it will burst at the seams! The pillow is packed pretty well, even when it "deflates" a bit after a night or two, it isn't flat and clumpy like some down pillows do; it's just not as puffy. You can't even tell there are feathers in it either, it is just soft and cushy. The case is pretty elegant, but I prefer to rest my face on a softer pillow case. I don't buy down pillows so I don't know if this was a good deal or not, I feel like I spent quite a bit of money on a pillow that didn't help my neck aches, but I'm still glad I bought it.
If I could have put 6 stars for comfort, I would have. I did a lot of research before buying my first down pillow, and am very pleased with this product. It is full and fluffy and like sleeping on a cloud. It is everything it was advertised as, and more. I would highly recommend this pillow.
These pillows fluffed up right after taking them out of the package. I did not notice any unpleasant odor from the pillows. These pillows are more firm than our previous down pillows, but overall are comfortable and give good support. Excellent fabric quality with pillow covers that can be removed and washed. A great value when you compare with other down pillows.
Finding a new pillow to replace your faorite scrunchie pillow is near to impossible. But this pillow is by far my favorite that I have found in my quest.. The quality is everything you're looking for. Fluffs up great. Gives good support for the neck and shoulders. It is my favorite so far. Hands down. It's probably better for me than my scrunchie. Nice quality. So I'm stil looking for one a little thinner and flater to replace my scrunchie. With less down fill so I can smash it easily. Pillows are very important. Then I'll have two favorite pillows as this one is a winner and a keeper by itself.
These are great pillows...size is great...very thick and fluffy... soft but with enough firmness... would love them.. but the smell is horrid!! Honestly, I purchased a comfortor and feather bed... and they "aired out" fine...these pillows did not... I "aired" them for 24 hours like recommended...within 3 days the entire bedroom smelled bad... I took them off and left outside on the sun porch for 5 days... and the smell is still bad...even leaves your hair with an odor in the morning! I have tried to suffer with them because they are very comfortable otherwise .. but it's not gonna work. I am gonna try fluffing in the dryer with a softener sheet but at this time they are just not tolerable for the bed! The smell is what makes them uncomfortable
