Finally a pillow that is so-o-o unbelievably comfortable!!! It does not shed any little feathers all over nor does it stick you with feather quills. My spouse wants one now too! I am also going to buy more for a shower or wedding gift. I am extremely satisfied! This pillow conforms to your head and neck, so it is not a real firm pillow.
Due to allergies, I had never used down pillows before. My doctor recommended them and I decided to try them out (with allergen cases, of course!). I tried a cheaper, lower fill down and feather pillow, but they went flat pretty quickly. After lots of research, I decided to try a higher fill power pure down pillow, and bought two of these. I am so glad I did!I don't even have to fluff them. They stay very fluffy and soft all the time. They have held up very well. They are very soft yet fully supportive. Now I'm spoiled and have to take them with me when I travel!These pillows are just absolutely wonderful and the price is spectacular. I highly recommend them.
I should have heeded the advice of those who said to stay away from this pillow. Being optimistic, I went ahead and ordered 2. They had an odor right out of the wrapping, I still smell it and to me it smells like wet dog! I've tried airing outside and in the dryer on air setting..nothing helps. I must have a very sensitive nose, though, as my husband says he no longer detects any odor. He uses the pillows, hugs one and sleeps on the other...however, if I happen to encounter one of those pillows during the night, I wake up out of a sound sleep! The smell is that offensive to me. Unfortunately, I doubt with the passage of time that Overstock will take them back. My advice..if you have a sensitive nose...don't buy.
I purchased this pillow as a gift for my husband. He used to have a good down pillow but left it at a motel we had stayed at and missed it. He is thrilled with his new pillow. Hardly a night goes by that he doesn't say how much he "loves" his new pillow. I was very satisfied with the softness, workmanship, and value for what I spent.
I've never slept on a down pillow, but I've always had a down comforter, and love the feel of down. The pillow is nice and fluffy, but very different than your standard, run of the mill polyester fill pillow. I'm not sure the difference is worth the price, but the pillow is nice.
I had the same down pillow for many years. It was squishable and soft and I was loathe to replace it. It had been through many washes and many dryer cycles, but it just couldn't go any longer. I read the reviews about this pillow and some said they were a bit disappointed in the loft. I like a softer pillow so I can squish it under my neck and shape it to my needs. I thought this would be paper thin, but surprisingly, it is very full. At least, fuller than I expected. It is still thin enough to squish and shape, but it has more loft than my previous pillow that I had paid $75 for about five years ago in Fortunoff's, N.Y. I am thrilled with this pillow and enjoy laying down at night and putting my head on it. It is fluffy and soft and relaxing to sleep on. I'm very happy with this purchase.
I read a lot of reviews before I purchased this. I thought this would be very soft and comfy.I got the pillow and I was all excited about it. When I slept on it the first night, it felt really soft. So soft that it sank to the bottom of my bed. I felt that the pillow did not exist at all but the two sides of the pillow next to my ears were pluffy and big. It was like my whole head got buried in a donut, it made my head hot.Then when I was sleeping, I thought I was in a farm because the pillow smelled like the goose feathers! I am not kidding you. I hope other reviewers will agree with me. Or am I the only one who is smelling the goose feathers???? Overall, I am not happy with this pillow, I guess it is too late to return it now.
I have looked for a pillow with a high thread count and a high fill power for a good price and finally found both here. I sleep on my side and this pillow is full enough that I am comfortable. The high thread count keeps all the down inside the pillow where it belongs. Over all I would recomend this pillow to anyone who likes a soft cushy pillow but still wants support.
i bought this pillow hesitantly a few weeks back because i wanted to be sure i made a wise purchase. I have a really sore neck every morning when i wake up, so i decided i would try this out to see if it would help. once it arrived i wanted to try it out right away, but knew after reading about it and following the instructions i should let it air out because of the scent of the feathers. It did have a weird smell once i unwrapped it, but after airing it out for about 24 hours (like the directions said to!), the smell went away and now it smells like any other pillow. The first night after using it...no more neck problems in the morning. i was amazed! I did have to use another pillow along with it because of the amount of give this pillow had, but it works perfect. Very glad i purchased this.
Have searched online and in stores for over a year - to my husband's dismay - for GOOD Down Pillows with Quality SOFT cotton covers. Returned 4 pillows during this year-long search, for which I paid much more than I just paid Overstock.com! I know how important a good sleep is for all people. But I suffer with Fibromyalgia, and my husband has a serious heart condition - making good sleep critically important.Well, I had THE best night's sleep since I can't remember - no pills needed - slept 7+ STRAIGHT hours. My husband said I looked like one of those pictures of a dog on its back with paws up - completely content. (Thank God he doesn't know how to use our digital camera!) When I told my husband that I bought TWO of these pillows - one for him - he tried it and is equally delighted.Thank you - Thank you - Thank you! I am now an avid fan of Overstock.com and am back shopping for a Down Comforter today.
I put this outside to air as Overstock suggested because it does smell like feathers, of course. I fluffed it and put it on the bed, looked nice. Once you put your head on it though it is flat as a pancake. If you like to beat your pillow up and sleep with it folded in half onto itself, you might like this pillow, my husband does.
I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS ON THESE PILLOWS..THEY LOOK GREAT, GREAT FABRIC, NICE AND FLUFFY ON THE BED, BUT, AS SOON AS YOU PUT YOUR HEAD DOWN ON THE PILLOW, ITS FLAT, FLAT, FLAT..EVEN WITH 2 PILLOWS ON TOP OF EACH OTHER, THEY STILL FLATTENED TO NOTHING..I WOULDNT SUGGEST THESE AT ALL, I HAD TO RETURN THEM, MY FIRST BAD EXPERIENCE W/ OVERSTOCK.COM
I spent $160.00 on 4 pillows. Being that this was Overstock, for this amount of money I was expecting somet ing pretty fabulous. I checked out a few different types of pillows in my local dept stores and while the prices were a bit higher the products were better. These pillows are nice in that the casing is pretty, the feathers do not poke through but they are so "fluffy" rather that the denser goose down I prefer. I like the pillows ok and I like that you can scrunch them up to fit your preference of height to support your neck but I did not think they were a good value.
