Finding just the right level of support in any pillow is a huge challenge due to my whiplash-injured, small neck and petite frame, so I approached this purchase cautiously. Fortunately, this Hungarian down pillow is exactly as described by the manufacturer and worthy of a luxury hotel. Its 700 fill power means it is lofty enough to cradle your head and conform to your neck's dimensions for hours of support. In my situatiuon, with a Tempurpedic mattress, its 22 ounces make it almost too firm. ( I'll be happier when the down loses some of its fullness with use, as my previous experiences with down would suggest.) The sateen cotton casing is zippered for easy removal and cleaning--a nice bonus. If you are looking for a comfortable, medium-firm pillow, this one should be perfect! Thanks again, Overstock.

Thank you for your comment and your positive review. We appreciate all comments and are happy to hear when a product was well-received. Just to clarify for our customers, this is a Siberian down pillow, and we apologize for any miscommunication or misunderstanding. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to serving you again in the future.
I read the specs and reviews for this pillow and expected a much firmer pillow. This is definitely not a side sleeper pillow compared to others that I've had. It is very soft and after contacting customer service and having them do some research, I found out that this is only a 550 fill power.It certainly isn't worth the extra money considering you can order from Overstock the Overfilled 450 Thread Count Pillow with 600 fill power down pillow for $39.99 or the Siberian 500 Thread Count Down Pillow with 650 fill power for 39.99. If you are looking for a firmer pillow , keep looking ! If you don't mind fluffing or folding it in the middle of the night, you might make this work; however for me, this pillow is a big disappointment.
As mentioned by one of the other reviewers, do NOT buy this pillow if you expect it to be 100% down. The label states a minimum of 75% down. How do they measure that, I wonder? Anyway, I still like the pillow because (as also mentioned in a prior review) this pillow is soft and fluffs nicely without"bottoming out" when your head hits it. As a result, you do get excellent neck support. I sleep more soundly now than I did with my former 100% down pillow which was like sleeping on a cloud but without any neck support, something that left me with stiffness and aches in the morning. I sleep front, side, and back so this works for me in any position...even stomach. (I prop it more under my chest and stomach and have my head hang over the edge.) Anyway, as long as you know what to expect, you can make a decision that meets your needs.

OH MY GOSH! I LOVE this pillow! I decided to get the king size, as long as they were all the same price, and, oh my, its like sinking into a solidified cloud :-).... Would definately recommend this pillow. There's absolutely no way I sleep on it that produces the numb hand I used to get with cheap pillows. Love, Love, Love!
These pillows have the perfect amount of fluff and the 600 thread count almost guarantees feathers will not poke through. My boyfriend sleeps on his stomach and I sleep on my side and they work for both of us. We love these pillows so much that we have ordered another 4 (for a total of 6).
Fantastic. That's enough said, but I can't stop there. Billowy. Full bodied. Soothing, Soft and Cuddly. Fluff it and it seems to suck in the air and lay your head on this baby and say "Ahhhhh". Your head just sinks in and it feels great. Comes with an awesome zippered, patterned pillow cover, too. *** Worth every penny and then some. Don't be an ***. It's on sale.
I would recommend only with these notes, for the price I was expecting more, as they don't seem to be 600 fill, otherwise, the craftsmanship is excellent, includes cover, and the pillow doesn't shed or anything, and it is super soft, feathers are goose down, so there are no prickly duck/fowl down to worry about. The pillow does compress quite thinly, however, it still provides lots of support which is deceptive, and certainly odd, so I have mixed feelings about the fill power, otherwise very good product.
I can not believe that I received the same kind of pillow about which other reviewers have raved. My pillow was not plush at all right out of the box but I figured I could live with it if it were comfortable. As soon as I lay my head on it that night, it went flat. The quality is what I'd expect from a $15-20 pillow, not one as expensive as this. I'll keep it to use underneath the pillow I already had -- I was going to throw that pillow away because I've had it for so long but it's much plusher (and cost much less) than the one I just got from Overstock.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is as shown on site.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Terrible Quality. The first Overstock purchase in which I am disappointed.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate at all.
These pillows continue to be cool, soft and supportive. I think they are priced a bit high, but after wasting tons of money on 'down like', down alternatives, simple poly fill that flatten in 30 days, I will be buying these again. If they get a little flat after using, I've been pleasantly surprised that after one or two fluffs they are back to their original fullness.the only reason I rate these four stars is the price. I have had these close to four months and feel confident that they will last for years.
It was a hustle to find a down pillow that wouldn't look like a pancake in the morning and this one seemed to do the job better. I just switched from down to foam, however and I like that much better. If you like softer feel try Balance 3.0 brand in the stores and see what you think. I got the soft microfiber pillow protectors to go with it and it feels like heaven.
This is a great down pillow; just not for stomach sleepers. It says in the description "for side sleepers" and I missed that. Think I was too excited about the zip off cover which can be washed. No more having to clean the whole pillow. I am going to try removing some of the down to "deflate" the pillow a little. It is very well made and I would highly recommend it for the side sleeper. Much too high and firm for a stomach sleeper.
i love down pillows and had high hopes for this one. when it arrived, it was in a small bag. i hoped it will puff up once opened but not the case. i was too lazy to send it back. for the price dont buy it. soft does not describe it, it is softer than soft. it is a pancake.
