I bought these pillows for value, product design, and allergy-avoidance characteristics. I was drawn by their puffy appearance and other reviews I read. I was not disappointed. It took a few days to get used to the thickness of the pillows. They are wonderfully easy to mold into the the right shape each night and give themselves to my bidding rather than dictating how I must sleep to accommodate them. As the weeks have passed, I like them even more, if possible, than when I got them. These pillows have a very luxurious, old-fashioned, comforting feel to them.
I have had these pillows for over a year and a half and I love'em. They're only now getting the point where I'm starting to consider buying a new set of the same pillows, so they hold up pretty well, particularly for the incredibly cheap price. They're quite soft, so if you like a firm pillow, they're not for you, but they're really comfortable and perfect for me. They're smooth and quiet in their cushioning and don't have the sort of ocd-bothering tactile feelings that many pillows have. If I want extra support to watch tv or something I sometimes stack'em or fold'em over as they're quite pliable. They are soft to the point that I lie with my face on the edge of them because if you lie face-down and to the side as I do, they do sink enough to obstruct your breathing. They're great for packing the 2nd one up against your back or neck or something as they conform to your shape well. All in all, I highly recommend if you enjoy a soft pillow.
Very comfortable pillows, somewhat softer than I expected, but they mold very well to how I sleep. I like the fact that they fluff back to their original shape even after being squashed during the night. They are hypoallergenic, which is an added feature that influenced my decision to purchase. They were packed with care and arrived quickly.
I purchased 4 of these pillows for my bedroom and guest room. They are very soft and fluffy and your head will sink down into the pillow and cradle your neck all around. I have a lot of trouble with my neck and these pillows sure help, I can get up from sleeping and not have a stiff neck. I plan of buying 4 more pillows for back up that fit the shams, as they stay so fluffed up and will fill out the cases just right. I sleep mostly on my side, and my grand son who spends the weekends sleeps mostly on his back and the pillows work great for him also. I hope this review will help you in picking the right pillows for you.
The pillows were not what I expected. The pillows are too soft in the sense that they compress almost flat when you lay on them as if there is not enough stuffing for the size (king) of the pillow. I would have preferred something w/ a little more inside. The pillow itstelf does appear to be of good quality.
I bought these pillows in January. They seemed nice upon arrival;, soft yet supportive, attractive fabric, etc... Now approximately five months later I am pillow shopping again. These pillows have gone flat and lifless. It seems, with these pillows anyway, you get what you pay for!
I have slept on white goose down pillows for forever. I have a 7 bedroom house so have lots of beds to make and supply linens for. I tried these pillows and now I put my expensive goose down on another bed and use these as I like them better than the goose down. I have the best linens money can buy so I do know something of what I speak. I found it hard to believe I liked the 10 dollar pillow better than the super expensive ones. Dont hesitate on the down alternative pillows, they are great.
This is my first ever review after buying products from Overstock for years and always being happy. These were the first dud. When I first received them they were great, prompting me to order a couple of more sets. After a couple of months of use, they had become hopelessly flat and could not be fluffed back up. I decided washing and drying them might fluff them back up. The instructions said machine wash delicate (I did), and tumble dry low. I have an automatic dryer that senses when the items are dry. It tumbled for 3 hours! I kept checking them periodically. I think the dryer finally just gave up, they were damp when it did turn off. I put them back in on high, keeping an eye on them, and it tumbled for 2 more hours! Finally when I got them out, they were nice and fluffy and felt warm and dry. We put them on the bed and went to sleep, only to awake to a puddle of water under each pillow. These fibers seem to hold water and if 5 hours of drying in a gas dryer won't dry them, I'm guessing nothing will.
These are really nice pillows, but a little too soft for our tastes. If you like to wad up your pillow under your head, these would be great for you... But, to just lay your head on - you might as well not have a pillow at all, they just dissapear under you. I had pillows like this as a kid, so I loved them - but my husband didn't. We ended up getting different ones and putting these on the guest bed.
Wow ..I'm allergic to Down/feathers and have yearned for a pillow that would fully mimmick the qualities of Down. These pillows are as close as one might get, in my opinion! They fluff, squash, form and are as soft as Down. I'm a side sleeper, and every pillow I have tried 'till now, including memory foam, has caused my ear to hurt (from compression). Not so with these pillows! Thanks Nexus, and Thank You Overstock for making them soooo affordable!
These are the best pillows I have ever bought. Soft and scrunchable. Some say that they have no support and you sink to the bed...this is true but I think they were meant to scrunch and squish to the form you want them, especially if you are a side sleeper. I started out with one set for myself and have bought two more sets for my "pillow thieves" and am going to purchase another as a gift for a friend. Well worth the money. Thanks Overstock.com!!
I ordered two and they were perfect! Then one of our 5 kids came to visit and the two pillows left with one of them! So I ordered again - next visit, these two pillows left with them....the third time they came to visit, I ended up with only one pilow! I work 24 hour shifts and took this last pillow to be my bed buddy when I sleep over. Now I am back to none at home. This time I a ordered four! It is the best, nicest, scruchable, snuggly pillow I have ever tried!
