Not down, but down and duck feathers. One of my shepherd's has a habit for chewing the corner's out of pillows. The price was right, but these pillows are not comfortable. I actually think I over-paid for the quality of the product I received.
I like everything about this pillow. Soft, not to few, not too much down inside. My head feels as if on a cloud, when I sleep on my side or on my back, or on my tummy. Always nice. Fits for standart bedding sizes. Did not have any bad smell initially. For people with sensitive neck area, as you can form this pillow right for your particular feeling at the moment, though it gives a good support and doesn´t push my head back to chest, when I sleep on my back. I will order 3 more, this one was a pilot project.
THESE ARE BELLA LUX BRAND PILLOWS! (It's a very high-end luxury brand, marketed to the very wealthy). If you can find a better pillow than this, buy it. I would have given these a hundred trillion star rating if I could:) I discovered these @ TJ Maxx a year ago, labeled "Bella Lux" brand. There were 6 in the store. I bought 4, figuring I'd go back & pick up the remaining 2, if I really loved them. I went back the next day to buy them, & to my dismay, they were long gone. For the entire year since, I've been sleeping in total, indulgent luxury, and searching for more of these pillows, to replace some of my other down/feather pillows. (Some are too flat, others are too heavy/lumpy/hard). This is the absolute PERFECT amount of down fill. Well, as perfect as can be, because really, "perfect" is based on individual's opinions- There will always be some people who think there's not enough fill, and others who think there's too much fill, etc. I've owned down & feather pillows for 20 years- I've paid $200 / pillow. None come close to this pillow's quality- I've owned this exact pillow, & slept on it nightly, for a full year. It's the absolute, ultimate perfect pillow! I always get Queen size, because I like to align it sideways with my head/neck/torso, & scrunch it up to sleep on. Sometimes, I'm so exhausted I fall asleep on my back, & I wake up the next am. with this cloud-like cradling sensation of my head & neck. I just purchased & rc'd 4 more of these from overstock- They are perfect perfect perfect! I'm going to buy 2 more, to save for my daughter to take to college with her. Definitely make sure you purchase zippered covers for them- It might not seem like you need them up-front, but 5-10 years from now, you'll be very glad that you've kept these treasures covered. I take the covers off to launder monthly. Oh, and by the way- When people are complaining that the tiny feathers are escaping the cotton fabric, that's a GOOD thing- It means the down clusters are so incredibly tiny (high loft), that even a solid sheeting of cotton doesn't contain them completely. And, we're not talking about any amount of down leakage beyond .0001 % of the fill. It's inconsequential, except that it's the indicator of a VERY high quality fill. The cotton fabric is a very high thread count (= nothing much to get between your head & the pillow! Makes for a very soft pillow). And, the edges of this pillow are also very well-constructed- Flat edged, double-fine stitched. I can't say enough about these magnificent pillows. Gazillionaires pay $2,000+ / pillow! They are getting a pillow that is roughly equivalent to this one. Live like you are mad-wealthy. Buy a few of these luxury pillows, & let o.co know that these pillows are in continual demand! Thanks for reading my pillow novel. Sleep well :)
I've had this pillow now for over 3 years, and it's time to replace it. It was very comfy, but it has lost it's "loft" and fill power and is basically flat now. I didn't expect it to flatten out so soon, (I've had other down pillows last quite a bit longer) but it was comfy while it lasted.
This is the second down pillow that I ordered. The first one was too flat and was returned. This one was better with more down in it. I need to say that I ordered this same pillow 2 years ago and was able to compare the new one with the old one. The old was had more down and was less expensive. So in two years the fill went down and the price went up.
These pillows are pretty whimpy. I thought they would really fluff up per the item description but they haven't they look the same as when I pulled them out of the sealed packaging which appeared to have the air sucked out. Returning these for sure.
we do love these pillows .you do have to shake them or fluff them every night to have a cloud fluffy pillow to drift into. Remember you only get one pillow for the price listed .But they are very nice pillows i got 2 as you can tell.But worth it.
