MY HUSBAND IS A RETIRED NYPD AND NOW WORKS SECURITY AT THE SHERATON. WE STAY IN THE NICEST HOTELS, SHERATON AND WESTIN. AFTER WANTING TO STEAL THE PILLOWS EVERYTIME, I FINALLY WROTE DOWN THE INFO FOR THE PILLOWS THAT WE SOOO LOVE AT THE LAST SHERATON. I FOUND THEM HERE AND ORDERED 2 SETS. WE LOVE THEM SOOOOO. WE ARE ORDERING 2 MORE SETS FOR THE OTHER ROOMS. SOOOO COMFY SOOO AWESOME!! NOW I WANT THE COMFORTORS FROM THE SHERATON AND WESTIN TOO...SUSAN AND JACK
I was very leery about purchasing pillows that I could not touch and test out first but I am highly satisfied with this purchase. I just couldn't find what I wanted in retail stores that weren't extremely expensive. I am a frequent overstock shopper so I gave it a try. The fullness and quality of this set of pillows are what you could expect from a much more expensive pillow. I fluff my pillow every night before going to bed and it stands right back up. I can curve it around and form it just how I like without it being lumpy or too firm. I am mostly a side sleeper but I move around a good bit so sometimes end up on my back or stomach. This pillow works well no matter how I chose to sleep. It is not flat like stuffed pillows tend to get after a month or so but not so full that it makes my neck hurt. I did not expect my husband to like this pillow as we never like the same kind of pillows (he likes flat and I like full) but he loves this pillow too! He can flatten his pillow out and I can fluff mine. We have traveled quite a bit and we stay in nice hotels and always love their bedding. We wanted to recreate the feel of a nice hotel but on much smaller budget. This pillow set went above our expectations. Now purchasing a second set for our kids so they will quit stealing ours.
I love these pillows. They are slightly firm at first, they will soften up. Great quality, they seem to be well made. Support my head without letting my head sag all the way through the pillow. I do not feel quills at all even though these are 50/50 feather and down, you cant tell they aren't all down. One tip mabe will help a few others, If your pillowcase is narrow, it will keep the pillow from squishing the way it needs to and hold the shape tightly, this makes the pillow seem firmer than it really is . I ordered king , but some of my pillowcases are not made as wide, so I noticed the difference. You can't go wrong for the price at any rate.
The pillows were fair quality however I was looking for a firm pillow and these were definitely no where near firm. They arrived flat and had no support whatsoever, but the material that the pillows were made out of were soft. Only would recommend these if you like soft and unsupportive pillows.
