I have slept on white goose down pillows for forever. I have a 7 bedroom house so have lots of beds to make and supply linens for. I tried these pillows and now I put my expensive goose down on another bed and use these as I like them better than the goose down. I have the best linens money can buy so I do know something of what I speak. I found it hard to believe I liked the 10 dollar pillow better than the super expensive ones. Dont hesitate on the down alternative pillows, they are great.
