I read a lot of reviews before I decided on this featherbed. I am pretty sure that a good percentage of people reviewing featherbeds have never slept on one before. Yes, they have to be fluffed up when you change bedding. Have you ever seen a fluffy duck or goose? Feathers will flatten down - it's the nature of having a natural product. Yes, some featherbeds will have the quills poke through the cover - depends on the cover and the type of quills. This one has an over cover besides the one holding it together and I've seen/felt no sign of quills. Very good quality second cover too. I sleep alone in a Queen size bed and stay on one side - can see no difference when I look at the bed as one side is not pressed down more. I love it!
I ordered this 5" featherbed set to replace a 2" one that I had slept on for several years. Read all the reviews...and there were many....but decided to ignore the negative ones as had been pleased with my first set made in the USA by National Sleep Products....not in China like some of the others. I was very pleased with the reasonable shipping process from Overstock as it arrived, as promised. However, the minute it came out of the box I noticed a very strong odor about it. I let it air out for a day and then put the cover on. That night I could hardly sleep as the odor was sickening.......even my clothing picked up the smell. The next day I had to machine wash the cover 3 times to try to get the odor out....to no avail so put the cover away and decided not to use it. The set still smelled so bought a container of linen and sky scented Fabreeze and sprayed it directly on the set. Later in the day I covered the topper with 2 clean sheets and a clean quilt. That seemed to take care of the problem.......but I felt like I shouldn't have had to do all those things in order to sleep comfortably on the product. I will say that it is very comfortable although has to be fluffed up every couple of days. Aside from the smell, I am happy with the product.
I wouldn't be surprised if the fact this doesn't seem to hold its fluff simply because it's all feathers is typical. it is a nice product and seems to be constructed well, just smooches down after sleeping on it for a few days.
The man is amazingly comfortable and thick. It has elasticized sides to secure it to the mattress so it does not move around. It is baffled so the feathers do not clump up. It is a great product even if it where to have cost triple the money. My only complaint is not with the product it is just that sadly, my cat will not sleep with us anymore --- he does not like it and just meowed in accordance as he heard my voice to text lol. Perhaps he will get used to it as the feather smell dissipates. Anyway, great product --- five stars from the humans!
