My husband loves these down alternative pillows and I immediately noticed the lack of snoring on his part. All these years of only buying down pillows (hundreds of dollars) only to find that my husband was really allergic to them. I recently purchased the European Down Alternative pillows to fit some matching shams for an Overstock Pine Hill Quilt. The European pillows were very comfortable but too wide to sleep on so I began a search for the king-size from the same maker and found it with these pillows which are even cheaper than the European ones. We are night readers and the pillows easily scrunch up on the corners to allow for comfortable reading. The king pillows also fluff up just like down pillows and look pretty when remaking the bed. Even if they only last a few months, they're worth it and I would definitely purchase them again. I am using these with another pair of 500 thread count down alternative pillows which are slightly more expensive but I believe I like these better.
I got the medium weight pillows and am extremely pleased with them. They are not too firm that they are uncomfortable nor are they too soft that your head sinks through. In the famous words of Goldilocks- they are just right.
When I think of down alternative I am expecting something that molds to the way I adjust it. These pillows are nice and of good quality but they are closer to foam then down. I ordered down alternative from O before and returned them, I gave these to my son and he said they are OK. I really wish when a maker uses the words down alternative you could trust it but that's not the case. I think these pillows are of good quality but the description is so misleading that I gave a low score. I have been reading the reviews for both down and alternative on O and have finally decided that you can only buy a pillow for yourself in person. Everyone has their own thing with pillows, it is very much a personal preference, soft to you can be a rock to me and visa versa so I am on my way to **** to find my pillows.
