These pillows are really good quality, especially for the price. I had bought a set from a department store for double the price, but the quality of the overstock ones is far superior. As some of the other reviewers mentioned, they are great when placed in a 26" or so pillow cover; not sure if they would be as good in a pillow cover that isn't as tight. However, the fill is plump, and I have had them for over a month. Very comfortable and the filling actually stays plump; what's really great about them is that they are soft while being firm at the same time.
