While on an anniversary outing to a very nice hotel, I experienced the luxury of feather euro pillows...I just had to have some for our bed at home. I was excited to find several choices at Overstock.com. I relied on the reviews of others to decide I should give these a try. My husband and I are both thrilled with this choice. These pillows are moldable, but firm and thick...just like the ones at the hotel!
I have a few sets of these and find them to be a very good value. They are soft and easy to fluff. I prefer to use lined Shams on them so that you cannot feel the feathers. If your shams are not lined, you could make or purchase a pillow protector for these Euros. They would be even nicer if they already came with a separate cover, but for the price, these can't be beat! Thanks Overstock
I am from Germany and I still have my german sized pillow cases. Not shams or decoration pillows but real pillow covers for this kind of sized pillows. This is perfect, just what I used to sleep on. If I need to adjust the size, I may have to open the cases and take some feathers out and stitch it back up but this is the very closest thing to German pillow cases. I sleep fine on them. If the feathers start sticking out after a while, I just put 2 cases on . May not smell really good when wet but at least they dry and fluff right back up.
I bought 2 sets of these a month ago, and came back for another set today. I've used them to replace the hopelessly compacted fiberfill in the loose cushions on the back of my sofa. Now, when one of our 3 dogs lies on top of the cushion and flattens it into a shapelss blob, I can fluff and smooth the cushion back into shape in about 2 seconds. I searched everywhere before I bought these; the next-best price for the identical pillows (same product name, thread count, and fill weight) was TWICE the price. As usual, I'm thrilled with my Overstock.com purchase!
These pillows fill out my euro shams well enough, but would prefer the pillows to be a little fuller. I bought some euro sized feather and down pillows from a popular retailer previously and they are fuller. These from overstock are comfortable enough to sleep on, but are not supportive enough for supporting back for sitting up and reading/watching television. For enough support for sitting, you would need at least 2 of these pillows. They do crunch as do most all feather pillows. These pillows satisfy my purpose adequately.
These square pillows were perfect for the shams for my bed set. I couldn't find anything in the store that compared with the size and quality of these pillows and they fit perfectly. They hold their shape and fill out the shams and make them really full and puffy. They were half the price of any I found in stores. I would recommend them to anyone looking for large square pillows for their bed sets as well as for anyone looking for floor pillows. Thanks< Overstock< you've done it again.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? These turned out to be perfect for the shams I had for my bed set.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. They were larger than what I saw in three different stores before checking with Overstock.com. They were much better quality than what the stores carried, too, and half the price.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? They were exactly what the site said they were.
These are nice pillow inserts, however, if you have a 26" square pillow cover, I would purchase the 28" square inserts, as they are too soft to hold their shape, stand up, or really fill out well the 26" cover.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? yes
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? sort of
Some of these reviews are way over stated that it would be great for a sham pillow, so I ordered a set. I'm not too happy about it because the manufacture indicated that the fillers is stuffed with ducks feathers lol. If I wanted ducks feathers I could have gone to the park nearby. In addition, It was not firm enough to use as a sham pillow as one of the reviews said it was. Unfortunately, I would not recommend these products to my friends because they have high end taste and this pillows will not do for them. This is my first time ordering pillows online and this will be my last. It taught me a lesson not to really go by any review.
My pillow was defective. It was filled with duck feathers, the odor was intense, just like live duck. Overall, they were quite heavy, apprx 5lb. The surface was not smooth, I can actually feel the feather beneath the case. If it didn't have strong odor like my defective one, I think the quality matched with money spend. It was bad experience I have with duck feathers fill.
Absolutely the best pillow I have ever had. Sleeps like a dream. So fluffy and comfortable. Some may see as a decorative pillow; but once it's on your bed the sleeping pillows will be pushed aside and these will become your favorites. Buying 4 more asap. High quality. And the price can not be beat.
