These are such a great value. I will be ordering another set once they become available since my son was home from college last week and asked to take the pillows back to school with him. The medium firmness is a great all purpose density unless you sleep on your stomach, then try the soft.
You can't beat the price of these pillows. I bought them in "medium" and in my opinion they feel medium. I have a different set of pillows in firm for variety in texture and these are a good compliment to those firmer pillows. Now that I have had them almost a year some of the filling has shifted towards the middle leaving the corners flat, but it can be squished back into place (and i think its a result of my boyfriend folding them in half - not a defect of the pillow itself). They are also machine washable/dryable which is great. You will not do better for the price.
My wife and I were excited to try these after reading the review on The Sweethome. We ordered medium fill, as we're a combination of side and back sleepers. After receiving these and spending a couple nights with them, we had to double-check that we didn't accidentally receive the Soft version. These pillows provide no support, and our heads sink through them immediately. I have tried sleeping on both at once, and I still sink right through them. My head ends up swallowed by pillows! On the plus side, the pillows fluff up nicely, and the filling is smooth (no lumps). So, the pillow quality is very nice, assuming you want a very soft pillow. They simply do not hold their shape when slept on.
I got 3 sets of these pillows for our bed, the guest bed, and camping. I got the Medium ones. I sleep on my side and stomach mostly and cannot use this pillow. It's to stiff and too much fluff inside. My mom and husband both sleep on their backs and haven't had much problem, but even when I'm laying on my back I feel my neck is bent and the pillows are unforgiving. I will stick to my punch-into-any-shape-or-flatten down pillow, but would recommend that people start with the soft version if they decide to go with this pillow.
I ordered the Medium fill and they are pretty comfortable. They are firmer than I expected after reading the glowing reviews. I sleep in all positions, and these are very nice when I am on my back. On my stomach, they're alright - a bit firm. I prefer a softer, fluffier (more down-like, if you will) pillow. If you like the traditional feather down pillow feel, you should get Soft. My only other complaint would be that they make a crunchy sound when you put your head down on them. It's not super loud, but definitely noticeable. Overall, they're nice, but I'm not raving.
I have only had these pillows for about 3 weeks or so and they are already all lumpy and those lumps are separated all over and they have completely lost their shape and are uncomfortable to sleep on! I've had pillows that cost much less last longer than these did! :(
I purchased these pillows and absolutely LOVES the quality and feel of the pillow. I have been buying and returning pillows with my significant other for 6 months and based on the reviews and price I went for it!! The fist set of "medium" felt as if your head and neck were not only well supported but as if your head was actually lightweight vs the end of day Bowling Ball!! I was so excited about the first set I jumped online to purchase the second but had to wait due to the item being out of stock. FINALLY they were back on stock and I ordered my second set! They came and at first feel they were perfect! The tags bug me on pillows so I immediately cut them off and put the pillow cases on. Oh I couldn't wait to sleep on them!! Another set of mediums -- they were SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT!! Neck was jacked up in the morning and I had already tossed my other ones!!! Since I cut the tags off I am stuck with the 2 that are 100% different in firmness and volume of stuffing that I switched out one with my significant other and I am not pleased with my reorder AT ALL! Now I haven't contacted overstock.com so I cannot say if they would help. So I rated or average because one set are "dreamy" the second set sucks.
About 3 weeks ago I bought these pillows, thinking that the reviews looked decent, and I could use a new pillow. Well, the reviews are WRONG. I have never had neck pain or problems in my life, and for the past 3 weeks I started waking up with spasm and stiffness in my neck. First it was the left side, then it was the right side. I am a 100% side sleeper, and today, the light finally dawned on me. My neck pain is because of the pillow! I had been blaming it on stress, or workouts I'd been doing, but no, the timing of my pain onset was completely correlating to the use of my new pillows. I have been sleeping horribly because of this, and now I realize its definitely the pillow. If you are a side sleeper, and you need a firmer pillow, Do NOT buy these. I cannot wait to switch back to my old pillow and finally wake up pain free.
I ordered these pillow in the "firm" not knowing which to order really. I have neck problems that result in terrible headaches so I'm very cautious with pillows. I've found these to be great! When you sleep on this pillow for the first few nights it feels like you're sleeping on balloons but after that few days it's just pure comfort. I went back and ordered these pillows again in the "medium" for my spare bedroom.
I like my pillows medium firm--fluffy but not too fluffy. Just enough to give you support without being so high it hurts your neck. I'm a side and tummy sleeper and these pillows are great. My husband kids keep stealing them from me so I'm buying more. I sleep so much better with these pillows.
Both my husband and I can agree on these pillows-we have our share of aches and pains that always seem worse when we are trying to sleep. I ordered these in the medium firmness and we are very pleased with their comfort. We had expensive down pillows that were not as comfortable-these are a great value.
