I've always loved down pillows, but they seem to get flat very quickly, and flat is not a comfortable sleep position. I thought I'd give these a try, because the price was right and Overstock has a great return policy. I will not be returning them. They are the right size (standard pillow) and they are as comfortable as down but they don't flatten easily. There was no smell about them, and they puff back up easily. I recommend these to down lovers and to foam lovers looking for a more comfortable night's sleep. I LOVE these pillows! Thank you, Overstock!
