After reading the one review, I figured I would try these pillows. I wouldn't recommend them. The pillows are definitely firm rather than medium. They are also rough in that the feathers poke through the surface. I'm guessing the cotton cover is not thick enough. If I had picked these up and felt them at a store, I would not have bought them. Although the price seems good for a feather pillow, I'll pay a bit more at a store.
