Bought these pillows and for the first week, they were ok. By the 2nd week, they started going flat. Its been 2 months since ive got them now, and i am back on the hunt for new pillows. They are soo flat that my husband has to fold them in 2 when using them.
I bought these as sham stuffers/inserts for a guest bed. I chose them because they come in extra firm, which is needed for decorative purposes. Also I needed two, they are cotton, a decent thread count, inexpensive, and have a good rating. I don't have a lot of hope for any pillows I buy here, because the last batch I bought from Overstock did not hold up. But hopefully with minimal use they will keep their shape and firmness, and synthetic fill seems to hold up longer. Personally my last choice in a sleeping pillow is synthetic fill, but some people like them. So if I need additional sleeping pillows for guests, I can always use these as well. Because they are not feather or down, they won't cause problems for people with allergies, and feathers won't be flying all over the room. (There were some pieces of stuffing I noticed however, but that might have come from the down alternative pillows I bought at the same time, also reviewed today).
I ordered the firm pillow, for side sleepers, which was way too firm and caused me neck pain for a couple days until I switched back to my original pillows. The pillow was too thick and hard, causing me to crane my neck in an uncomfortable position throughout the night.
purchased 2 sets of these pillows one month before this review was written, both my girlfriend and i agree that the pillow we use regularly for our heads have flattened considerably within this time period especially when compared to the other two unused pillows. it would probably be best to leave these for the guest room or a bed that is not frequently used.
the best thing about these pillows is that they fluff up to their original size...no more flat pillows! I have a queen size bed, but these pillows didn't indicate that they were full size. I still recommend them, and would purchase them again. Try them...you'll have a heavenly sleep
I love these pillows! They are soft and fluffy and I sleep like a princess!

They make great decorative pillows because they are very puffy and thick, however, i had this set of pillows for about two weeks now, it is still difficult to get use to the height. Because the thickness is so high on these pillows, it puts your neck at steep angle, it's not terrible, but it is uncomfortable enough for me to having problem falling asleep with. My boyfriend gave up on these pillows 3days into using it, I continued using them but eventually had to give them up and purchase the previous set I bought from overstock (Extra Firm Density Bed Pillows http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Extra-Firm-Density-Bed-Pillows-Set-of-2/3823051/product.html)
I like extra firm pillows. So often I havebought pillows and they were great in the store. Then of course they were nice and extra firm for a week or two and then the firm was gone. Not these pillows. They stay extra firm, stayttheir shape and feel great to sleep on. In fact I am considerig buy another set for hte guest room. I fyou like extra firm matress and extra fim pillows. Then these are the pillows. My conquest for an extra firm pillow is now done!
I have been looking for very full and fluffy pillows that don't go flat the second you lay on them forever now. I have tried almost every type of fabric and fill to no avail. I decided to try these since they claimed to be "density" pillows and wow, i am impressed with a pillow for the first time in years. i purchases the extra firm, a little wary they might be TOO firm and may hurt my neck but i was wrong. they are very full and fluffy but also incredibly soft. when you lay on them you sink right into them but they do NOT go flat, at all. even when i sit up in bed on these for long periods of time, when i stand up, they fluff right back up and hold their shape. i am ordering another set, possibly 2 in case i can not find them again. highly recommend if you want a full, fluffy, soft pillow that does not go flat when you lay down on it.
