These were my first pair of euro pillows. They are a good balance of soft firmness and have maintained that lofty feeling. The shape is nice for sitting upright in bed and adds richness to my large headboard. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Used primarily for decorative purposes as well as extra sleeping pillows when I have family or friends visiting. (Euro pillow cases are out there, just hard to find!) These replaced others that I purchased from an auction site, what a difference! Soft and plush. Shape bounces back after use. Has a bit of a chemical smell but I have no worries that it will dissipate over time.
