Hubby and I are, admittedly, pillow snobs. Our old goose down pillows are finally worn out, and we have been searching for a new pair for about a year. After researching goose down pillow specifics, such as fill power and weight, and after reading through all the other user reviews concerning this particular pillow, we took the risk of ordering a pair. We knew within a few minutes that these pillows do not even begin to compare to our old ones. After letting them fluff up, and they did look pretty, we discovered that the fluff and support were only visual--the pillows flattened with the least amount of weight. If you want pillows that look pretty and fluffy on your bed, these will do, though they are an expensive option. However, if you want a great goose down pillow that keeps its fluff and support when you lay your head on it, keep looking. Also, though the product description states that the pillows consist only of goose down and cotton (for the cover), the pillow tag reads, "Minimum 75% goose down" instead of "100% goose down."
I have a bit of a bedding addiction. I am constantly buying duvets, pillows, covers, sheets. I seek nothing less than perfection in my night's sleep. Even my SO and friends have commented on how fabulous my bed is. And the highlight of my bed is easily these pillows. They're wonderfully soft--the only reason to buy down, in my opinion--yet they offer a startling amount of support. I've purchased (many) other down pillows in the past (in fact, I used to buy two pillows every year or two--again, addiction), but my quest for the perfect pillow has ended. This is the holy grail.
I had been shopping for down pillows for a while to replace the ones that I already had. I shopped a lot and these pillows really were about half the price of comparable pillows in the local stores. I was concerned about the smell that other reviewers had mentioned. My pillows did not smell at all. The fabric is excellent. The pillows are not quite as firm as I had hoped, but I would definintely recommend these pillows.
Been sleeping on this pillow for approximately 10 days and this 75% Down is an average pillow with a medium to less firmness. This little lady fluffs right back into shape if you just fluff it up gently. For the price of $$$ it is nice little pillow and I am satisfied with it and I treat it well. Fluff it up each morning, putting it back into shape. Airing in weekly on porch or deck for about one hour. (Without the pillow case on just the zippered protector). Once a month I put my expensive Hungarian Gosse Down in the dryer with (2) tennis balls, on Fluff for about 10 mins. Good for the pillows - get the moisture out in the summertime and the pillows stand to quick attention. This Siberian down has a lovely cover on the down, however, I recommend also putting a zippered protector on a pillow. JC Penneys sells some great protectors for only $8.00 for two. As I stated above I have an expensive goose down pillow and believe me folks they set you back a pretty penny. I have a standard goose down and it cost $106.00 on sale and it is for side sleepers with 22 oz. down and it is FIRM. I love it but ladies this little Siberian white down pillow is a nice, comfortable pillow for the price. By the way folks, there no such thing as 'Siberian white down' all the internet sites state it I know but if you google it - it will give you true facts. NO such a thing as Siberian down, check it out for yourself. There is NO such a thing as a great cheap good down. For $$$ my pillow stays beside the expensive one, either on the side of it or behind it and they make a great couple. Think they are beginning to like each other. One good thing about this little pillow it can be turned into any shape for comfort of the head, neck and shoulders and with a little fluff it is back in shape. Mine looks great and I hope it lasts. I'm taking good care of it. Have anice summer folks.
I am so pleased with this down pillow! I had disc replacement surgery on 4 vertabrae in my neck last year and out of all the pillows I have tried, this pillow gives me the proper support for my neck without sacrificing the luxurious softness of a high quality down pillow! It is filled with just the right amount of down, firm, but soft enough to shape how I want it to be for a wonderful night's sleep without neck pain when I wake up! Thank you very much Overstock!
These pillows are great....I've ordered down pillows before from overstock, this time decided to go with the higher fill for a longer lasting pillow. These however are just a bit firmer than what i expected, but still extremely comfortable. One trick i've learned it a good way to fluff up the pillow after you take it out of the box is to put it in the dryer on air fluff/..NO HEAT for 10 minutes and WOW! Good rule of thumb would be to do this every month or so and you will always get extra life out of you down. I think these pillows had a 700+ fill but seeing how firm they are you can really get by with 650 if you prefer a little softer feel.
While I can use mine with reasonable comfort, my wife stuck hers aside for guests and bought a dept. store down pillow on sale for $20 less than this one and finds it far more comfortable. I figure that with time my pillow will soften and improve.
Just used these for the first time last night. They are nicer and plumper than other similar pillows. They fill out the pillowcase snugly, then when your head lays on it it is sooooo soft and just cuddles your head and neck. The cover is soft as Egyptian cotton is meant to be. I will buy more, these are just very great pillows for a price I can appreciate.
These pillows are great to sleep on. At first I thought they were a little softer and flatter than I wanted but after sleeping on them they are perfect. They fluff great and are quite full. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for down pillows.
So glad we got these pillows - they're full of down, and so very comfortable. The down is protected by a thick outer layer of fabric, and a very well-sewn seam, so nothing escapes outside of the pillow! We'd definitely order these again (but I don't foresee the need to). An excellent buy, sure to last a long, long time!
I've slept on them for several weeks now. They aren't overstuffed for my neck. I need pillows that aren't too full because I always sleep on my stomach. I can fluff it up where I need too. I bought them for comfort though, knowing they might be too flat for presentation/appearance. Overall I'm happy with the purchase. I might get another set for just a plusher look.
I have bought many down pillows over the years and these were the worst. You lay your head down on it and hit the bed...lowest fill power I have ever seen. I can't believe that people actually have good things to say about these. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY HERE.
I read all the great reviews and was very disappointed with my pillows when they arrived. They were to be a replacement for my current old (5 years) goose down pillows. My new pillows arrived and looked and felt worse than the ones I was replacing! Very thin and not fluffy at all! Return initiated and I will continue my search.
I recently bought the Hotel Grand 500 count soft pillow which was no support what so ever, returned it for this 700 count medium pillow thinking that it would give me better support. I was wrong. I am a belly and a back sleeper and this pillow is the same as the soft pillow. If you fold the pillow in half it does not unfold because there is not enough fill in it. After about two minutes it's like sleeping on a pancake. I am returning this pillow and I will not buy another Hotel Grand pillow again. My old down pillow is ten years old and gives me better support than this one.
