My husband and I desperately needed new bed pillows and I have always gotten mine in a bargain store atmosphere. I decided to give these pillows a try due to the positve feed back from others. They are by far the best pillows that I have gotten before. I have seen prettier pillows (stiching etc.) before, but I like the out side fabric which has a really nice crisp feel to it. Comfortable to the touch. I can't use a pillow that is too firm or lifts my head to high because it bothers my neck. I like the way my head is cradled by the pillow, it gives me the comfort I need without hurting my neck. They also, come back to life after a night on them which my old pillows didn't. It did take us a week or so to adjust to them, we were so used to a "dead" flat pillow before. Now, we love them and have put away our old pillows. I would recommend these pillows to others, I have not been disappointed at all. The other great thing is that they arrived about 3 days after ordering them, so I didn't have to wait long for a good nights sleep.
