I was looking for softer pillows. My man likes them but I don't. The real problem comes when trying to fit a pillow case on it. They are too firm and large too go easily into the cases. I have torn one pillow case trying to get it in. Most of the time my man puts them on and takes them off as they are SO hard to get in ... Never had a pillow be that difficult before. But they are really good for sitting up in the bed because of the firmness. I thought feather center would be softer. But like I said, my man loves them except for the case issue
I have neck issues and it can be hard to find the right pillows. I decided to try these, and we are very happy with them. They are big, generously sized pillows and the down allows you to shape them to your neck, etc. They have been great. I also like the fact that you can use them for years by cleaning them and recovering. There are instructions online for doing this with down pillows. Get these and enjoy a great night's sleep.
