I've had a 100% down pillow for many, many years which has seen better days and needed replacing. After losing my job in December due to the economy, I've been frugal with my spending. I decided to try non-down pillows from department stores to save some money. After buying two pillows from two different stores and then returning them because they were not comfortable, I decided to check Overstock.com. I really, really wanted another down pillow and the price at the department stores were just too expensive! When I read the ratings on this pillow and saw the fantastic price, I decided to purchase one. Lo and behold, I'm IN LOVE with this pillow!!! I purchased the Jumbo pillow as I'm a scruncher. I like a huggable pillow that I can mold to my head and body and this is THE pillow. If you are looking for a very soft, huggable pillow, this is the pillow for you. I couldn't be happier, plus I'm sleeping so much better!
Pillows are too soft and do not come back to their shape as a 100% down pillow would. The description said 100% Down, but the tags on the pillow say "minimum 75% down". I'm very disappointed as I've bought products from Overstock before and was happy. Now I am hesitant to buy from Overstock as I wonder if their descriptions are not what products truly are.
Some years ago I developed serious pain in my neck; the chiropractor told me to toss my synthetic pillows and switch to down. So simple, but it really helped. My old pillows were getting a bit flat, so it was time to get new ones (to test if your down pillow is "broken", lay on a flat surface and fold in half; if it stays folded and doesn't immediately spring back, you need a new one). Price is reasonable (check out department stores - you'll be shocked!), cotton cover feels thick so hopefully down will not seep out (too early to tell). Pillows are very soft, so if you're looking for firm support, these are not for you. Good for side or stomach sleepers. Great value, very pleased so far.
This pillow was advertised as Siberian white down. I expected a 100% down pillow, but what I got was down with a core of something else -- probably feathers. There is a big difference. I would have returned the pillows, except I had already discarded the packaging by the time I realized the problem.
I'm always looking for the perfect pillow, and I finally found it in the 500 thread count Siberian White Down Pillow! I don't have to fight with it and beat on it to make it fluffy. But, I can mold it the way I want to around my head for support and comfort. It's a wonderful pillow!
I was pleased with delivery, a lot faster than I planned for it. The 500 hundred thread count materal was really exceptional & with down I order a larger pillow thinking it will compress down. These pillows are really fluffy. I woul recommend them to my friends.

These pillows were what I was looking for. Not too big nor too small. I did put them in the dryer for a few minutes before using and they fluffed up nicely. I like a pillow that does not force my head up high but provides a little loft and these fit the bill.
Love this pillow! Not a fan of synthetic / fiberfill pillows because their lack of the ability to conform to a person's head/ body shape. This pillow is soft, pliable and covered with a high quality cotton.

Soft and easy to gather or mold to support you head/neck. I finally have found a pillow that works all night long. Good night!

I don't know where all the good reviews are coming from. I ordered this pillow to supplement an existing down pillow, and this new one can't hold a candle to the old one. This thing flattens out badly, not comfortable at all. Very disappointed
I am very pleased with this pillow. It fluffs up immediately when unpacked. Is soft and pliable to conform to whatever height or shape you want. I do not find it flattens out "like a pancake." The cover is substantial and I haven't had any problem with escaping feathers as has been reported by others. I would recommed this pillow to those who prefer a soft pillow and those who may have a neck problem.

This pillow is way underfilled and not at all what I thought I was ordering. I have just been to a department store & purchase a pillow that was more filled. Very disappointed.

This pillow is seriously under stuffed. It flattened the first time I used it. It was as if there was no pillow at all, my head went right to the mattress. And seriously, who cares about the thread count on a pillow? I'm just going to put a case over it. What I want is plenty of down, and this doesn't have it. Not only that, the tag fads minimum 75% down?!? I thought it was supposed to be all down. Keep looking if you want a firm pillow.
I have a hard time finding pillows like these for a reasonable price. I really think the pillow is comparable to higher priced pillows I have bought. Very good if you sleep on your stomach.

I purchased at least 10 pillows before this one, hoping that each one was "the pillow" I was looking for. I was wrong about each one of them. Then I found this one. Again, I was hoping I had finally hit the jackpot. I am happy to say that it was the exact pillow I was hoping it was. The cover is comfortable, there are no feathers poking through the cover, and it shapes perfectly to my shoulder, neck, and head when I sleep. I am thinking about buying two more of these and putting them safely away in deep storage so I will have one of these pillows for the rest of my life!
I feel like a pillow connoisseur, I have been hunting for the perfect pillow for some time and this is it. Unless you require a very firm pillow, the downey softness of this one is not without some backbone to help keep your spine in line if you are a side sleeper. If you are a tummy sleeper THIS IS THE ONE. Even my husband who likes a slightly firmer pillow is in love. I am ordering 2 more since we are so happy to be able to lay our heads down and feel like we have found a little piece of heaven in our own bed :)
