Pillows are like jeans: hard to find the perfect fit. When I was at a conference, I was exposed to this pillow at the hotel room. It was so comfortable that I stripped the cover off to see the manufacturer and model. I'm a stomach sleeper who hugs the pillow and this "gem" conforms to your body and its extremely comfortable. They are expensive but I would pay extra for a pillow that has more fill and hopefully longevity than other blend pillows.
Don't understand the other reviewer's comment about the pillow being hard as rocks. This pillow is firm and soft at the same time. I like this pillow very much. I think it has just the right amount of down and feather fill. I'm going to buy a couple more. This pillow is made by Downlite in Ohio.
I really liked these pillows at a Sheraton and went on a search for them. Overstock's price was better than the one on the Downlite site. I fluffed the pillows in the dryer before using and they got too big for me to use right away. I put the standard pillows in king pillow protectors and that gave the room needed for me to get the pillows less fluffy and to a better size for me. My boyfriend loves his set of Downlites.
I ordered two of these knowing that I was going to have to sleep at a 45 degree angle after surgery. They were exactly what I needed, and my husband and I have continued to use them as our new bed pillows. I love that they can be molded and plied to into various shapes and positions, and that they are firm, but still soft and comfortable. Stomach sleepers should definitely avoid these, but they're great for back and side sleepers!
I reckon they sell a better pillow to the hotel trade. It breathes; it's puffy; the cover is nice--you feel like you're sleeping on a pillow as opposed to a rubber bag BUT there's not enough fill. I even put it over a buckwheat hull pillow for loft and I still have to scrunch it like a 15 dollar gel pillow. I never spent so much money on a single pillow in my life so I'm angry.
The best sleep ever. Fell in love with this pillow in Sheraton Hotels. Stripped the pillow case and found the tag "Downlite". Did my research, and found the right blend "50/50 white goose" and the right price at Overstock. Thanks again Overstock, I am your customer forever.
