I have several sets of Joseph Abboud pillows and these are by far the worst JA pillows I have ever bought. They shed their stuffing and I had white lint all over my maroon comforter from just taking them out of the wrapping they came in. They are hard and not comfortable. I sent them back. But I will still buy Joseph Abboud pillows in the future because they are usually of high quality and comfortable. I love the JA pillows that I have now. I was very disappointed in this set. I can't believe these are really JA but they are.
I liked that you get two pillows and they are reasonably priced. They were not as firm as I expected but I do not wake up during the night trying to get comfortable. I would agree that these pillows are good for a back or side sleeper has I start on my side and end up on my back and my neck ache after a nights of sleep on my old pillows is gone.
The only down fall is the smell that comes with the pillow. It is a factory smell i am sure but i left my pillows outside for a while and they still smell. I don't know if they are washable or not. But my husband did like them for Christmas
