I bought these pillows for value, product design, and allergy-avoidance characteristics. I was drawn by their puffy appearance and other reviews I read. I was not disappointed. It took a few days to get used to the thickness of the pillows. They are wonderfully easy to mold into the the right shape each night and give themselves to my bidding rather than dictating how I must sleep to accommodate them. As the weeks have passed, I like them even more, if possible, than when I got them. These pillows have a very luxurious, old-fashioned, comforting feel to them.
