I ordered these pillows on the strength of the description. "Down" is used many times in an apparent effort to convince the hapless buyer into believing that these pillows are something other than plain old feather pillows. If you want plain feather pillows these will likely work for you. If you are looking for down or "down-like" don't even consider these. Personally, I feel a deliberate effort was made to mislead in the ad by using the term "down" so many times.
I am very pleased with the pillows I purchased. At the start I wondered if I had chosen well as they were almost too firm but then I realized that in comparison with the pillows I had been using these were doing what they were intended for - supporting my head and shoulders. They keep their shape well and can be fluffed up each morning as I make my bed.
for some reason I was always itching when I laid on these pillows... one night, I woke up with tons of small bumps on my shoulders and upper arms.. I felt maybe I had gotten a set that had bugs in them.. so I washed and dried them- but still- they had some sort of reaction for me.... they were very fluffy- and pretty nice for the buy- but didn't mold to my head as much as I'd like them to. The pillow seemed to want to stay fluffy and big- and not comply enough.
These pillows weren't only a great deal, they are exactly what I was looking for. They're very much like the pillows in hotels that I always want to take home. Have been using them for a couple of weeks and they are great!! Definitely recommended.
These pillows are really uncomfortable. They are nothing like the soft, fluffy down pillows I already own. They don't resemble down in any way. These pillows are hard and they "crunch" because the feathers are such low quality. They aren't even consistent. One pillow is twice as full as the other. I even weighed them to compare. One is stuffed and the other is half empty. The fabric is so poor, you can see the hard feathers through the material. I rarely review items and usually just ignore items that are slightly lesser quality than advertised, but these are so completely horrible that I opened them, tried them and came straight to the computer to share how completely disgusting these pillows are. I won't even use them!
What a Bargin! I love my new fluffy pillows. I actually threw away the old flat ones which had been around for ever. My daughter gave me a gift certificate from my favorite on line shopping website--Overstock.com, and I looked long and hard before I spotted these great pillows. I am very happy with these soft, fluffy down pillows. They come in a pair so I ordered 2 pairs or 4 pillows. They are really great in shams.
finally a pillow that is just like the ones I grew up with, but at a price I can afford. I have needed new pillows for awile and real feather pillows are out of my reach, until now. These pillows have all the plumpness I want with that great feather crunch that my 25 year old pillows had. Thank You for making me very happy.
Great pillows don't be fooled by the price, they are med firm very comfortable for side sleepers. I didn't notice any odor like some feather pillows and there is a slight crunch when you first lay on them but no big deal at all, I love these.
I read the review before I bought these pillows. The other reviews were very accurate. I find them comfortable and fluffy. I believe they would be categorized as medium firm. They keep their shape well. I only put them on the bed this week, but I'm satisfied.
These Micro- Pil's were a very good buy for me- They came flat but after I put them in the dryer for a little while they fluffed up quite perfectly- they were pratically odorless- I highly recommend them especially since the price might fool you into thinking that one might be buying less quality!- trust when I say they could be matched up w/ any high-end down pillows.
