I purchased brand new down alternative pillows that had a 2 inch gussetted edge. I wanted to be certain to purchase a pillow protector with a gusseted edge so that the fit would be proper without smushing my pillow with a too tight fit. This is an accurate fit! These pillow protectors wash well (no shrinkage), has a sheen to it making it elegant, as well as the zippers are hidden and well sewn. It's durable, but not thick, and breathes well while offering protection to your pillow. I will purchase another set for my other bedroom. Sure you can get protectors that are cheaper, but I've had these for a couple of months and no yellowing from laundering like you can get with the less expensive ones.
Necessary/needed for covering (in this case: gusseted) pillows.. These wear well.. Help refresh and keep pillow's in shape longer. And I use them on all my bed-pillows. Overstock provides a higher quality manufactured item. And makes it convenient to oder them.
Ordered 2 sets of these pillow protectors. Not bad for the price. Very nice fabric, washed up just fine. They used what used to be called invisible zippers, which are not really the best choice for a pillow protector. A bit hard to zip. But since I won't be taking these off that often, it is OK. Overall, I would say the fabric is really top notch, the workmanship so-so.
These gussetted pillow covers fit my new gussetted down/feather pillows perfectly. Like in goldylocks, this pillow is just right! The gussetted edges make them squared off so they can stand on edge and I can cradle my neck right in the dip. I have no more neck aches or stiff neck issues when I wake up. Also I curve the pillows right around my head so that they completely cover my ears and block out any background noise so I can sleep undisturbed. I actually look forward to bed time now because of these extra comfy pillows!
