I have slept on down pillows and these are like the ones that are my oldest. They are not fluffie and your head is against the bed, I tried to put both in one pillow cover that just made them hard. wish had taken them back. bought about a year ago.
My first and last purchase at overstock. 4 star average? Is this a joke? Contrary to the photo of what looks like two fluffy down pillows, these are *incredibly* underfilled. Even with two of these pillows stacked on top of one another I'd be better off using a sweatshirt as a pillow. I'm terribly dissatisfied and am returning them.
THE REASON FOR A POOR RATING: The first time I received these pillows, the were unwrapped/unsealed and thrown into a large bag and then shipping box. The product description says that the would be sealed and compressed. Seems to me like they were returned and just pulled off from a returns shelf. Overstock agreed and sent me a prepaid shipping label and I shipped them back. They placed a new order for me. The order arrived, and I couldn't believe it, but the pillows were unwrapped and thrown into a bag like before. Maybe they were even the same ones? I sent those back also and did not order again. All bedding and such should factory sealed. The quality of the pillow was never tested, so i can not speak for that.
I bought these 2 pillows, thinking of replacing my other down pillows. By themselves, the fill power is way too low, so in order to get more fluff, I had to combine both pillows in one pillowcase. I wish I had purchased these from a place that I could test them before buying. It was a waste of $***!
I was looking for a replacement for my current pillows that was soft and easy to sink into. These pillows have 100% goose down as promised with none of the prickly stems you find in a traditional feather pillow. Just in case one slips by however the covering of this pillow is a high thread count that is tightly woven and extra thick. This does add some stiffness to the pillow until it is broken in a bit, but if you are a restless sleeper like me, it should only take a week or two. The edge construction is great with double stitched seams that look as if they will hold up for the life of the pillow. I have had my last set for about two years. I don't' see why these will not make it at least that long. I spent a few minutes fluffing each pillow when I opened them to make them soft and fluffy. I will say too that Overstock did a great job of packing and shipping them because they did not stuff them into a smaller box, but shipped them in a larger box to keep them from being compressed during shipment. This helped greatly in the time from box to bed. I have had them for a few weeks now and the stiffness of the casing has started to subside. They are wearing in nicely. I do wish they had about two more ounces of down because I found that I like my pillows to be a bit overstuffed. For the average person however these pillows are great. If you are purchasing down on a budget then these are the right pillow for you. If you are looking for that pillow that was brought by the gods to allow you to sleep on the clouds of heaven, then pony up and spend the extra dough to buy a more expensive heavier weight pillow. BOTTOM LINE: Sturdy construction, Soft and fluffy feel, excellent buy for the money.
