My pillow shams measure 26 x 26 but in hopes of obtaining a full look, opted to try these 28 x 28 Euro Pillows. They filled them completely corner to corner without overfilling resulting in the pillow showing or bulging out of the back insert pockets. I am very pleased with this purchase and the appearance of my daybed pillows. If you have similar needs, you won't regret this purchase. The smaller pillows sized the same as the shams would not have filled them to capacity and would have resulted in disappointment.
This is the best pillow I've ever had, and I've had many pillows over my lifetime.
I own the too expensive Tempurpedic Cloud pillow, but I like this one Much better, and I use this one instead.
One improvement I would make with the pillow, is that I would offer it in two different Heights.
This pillow comes in at about a 7 inch height. I think they should also offer an 8 1/2" height too for larger persons so that the shoulder width distance it properly taken up.
What I do with this pillow to make up the height I want, is underneath my bed sheet right where the pillow rests, I placed a 1 1/2" foam piece the same size of the pillow, and then put the sheet over it, and the pillow rests on top of that - this way it gives the right height/loft for me.
The Pillow itself is exceptional, and the way your head sinks into heaven so soft yet has just the just right 'springy push back' resistance, supports your head just right.
I think this pillow should be called the cloud pillow and not the tempurpedic one, because theirs softly sinks with heat/weight yes, but after a few minutes when its action is finished, you then are laying on firm dough, whereas this Latex pillow, stays cloud soft all night... ...it's awesome.
Review based on the pillows I received, however I did notice there appears to be different pillow densities even for the same model pillow (meaning some of the same model pillows are firmer or softer than others, and so I wish there was better factory consistency control on this density matter. Again though, if it were my company, I would offer in each of the three categories: soft, medium, firm.. ..I would offer two different height/lofts for each one.
Also I noticed the firm pillow in this offering, is just way too firm!!! ...in my opinion and experience.
My mom had one of these type pillows for over 20 years. I have been looking for this pillow and FOUND IT!!! It will NEVER go flat and will be as comfortable as any pillow you have ever used. It has a springy type feel. Your head sinks in but it is also firm enough to give you good neck support. The pillow has a removable, washable cover also. You will not be dissapointed. I bought two, two years ago and they are like brand new, and I use them every night. It is almost comparable to memory foam without being "hard " like. A must have for anyone any age!!!
These pillows are fantastic! I am one of those sleepers who like to crumple my pillow into a ball and go from there, my husband likes full, fluffy pillow--these do both! AND there is none of the feather trails around the bedroom, they all stay in the pillow and do not stick you in the face or head as you sleep! These pillows don't get flat or lumpy- they fluff up to perfect with just a few turns. I completely recommend these pillows!
I have purchased many pillows looking for the best side sleeper pillow and this one is great. It keeps it shape and does not go flat while you sleep. I do not wake up with terrible neck and shoulder pain. The only reason I gave it only 4 stars was because I ordered a king size and this is the smallest king size pillow I have ever seen. I roll over from my left side to my right side several times during the night and have a tendency to roll off my pillow because it is so small. I am use to sleeping on a bigger pillow. Still it is a good pillow, just need it to be bigger.
I've had a 100% down pillow for many, many years which has seen better days and needed replacing. After losing my job in December due to the economy, I've been frugal with my spending. I decided to try non-down pillows from department stores to save some money. After buying two pillows from two different stores and then returning them because they were not comfortable, I decided to check Overstock.com. I really, really wanted another down pillow and the price at the department stores were just too expensive! When I read the ratings on this pillow and saw the fantastic price, I decided to purchase one. Lo and behold, I'm IN LOVE with this pillow!!! I purchased the Jumbo pillow as I'm a scruncher. I like a huggable pillow that I can mold to my head and body and this is THE pillow. If you are looking for a very soft, huggable pillow, this is the pillow for you. I couldn't be happier, plus I'm sleeping so much better!
This is a good pillow for a stomach sleeper. In general, you should buy the soft one if you are a stomach sleeper, the medium one if you are a back sleeper, or the firm one if you are a side sleeper. I am a stomach sleeper, so I bought the soft one. At first I was worried that it was still too thick as it pretty well fills up my king size pillowcases, but it compresses to an appropriate thick for a stomach sleeper like me. I probably would like it even better if it was a little thinner, but with that being said, I have not had neck or back pain.
It's also good to remember that the pillow is only one part of the equation. My wife and I replaced our old mattress that had developed divots where we sleep with a new very firm Simmons mattress (a very firm mattress has very little of the foam padding, which is the first part to wear out in my experience). We combined this very firm mattress with a 3" all-natural botanical latex topper. This has worked very well for us. I also like separating the topper from the mattress so that if one part wears out, we just replace that, rather than having to get a whole new mattress just because the foam layers are starting to wear out and develop divots. Our new topper did not fix our old mattress, it simply filled the contours of our old lumpy mattress. But on a new flat mattress, it is wonderful. I hope sharing my experience with the various factors that you need to take into account will help you to make an informed decision. There's nothing more frustrating than spending a lot of money on mattresses and pillows and still not sleeping any better -- hopefully my experience of what has worked for me and what hasn't will save you some cash and sleepless nights.
The pillows were the most comfortable I have slept on in a long time. I bought them for my guest room and my guests raved about the comfort. So then I used them after they left and I love them. I will be purchasing more so my future guests may have some too....highly recommend.
I purchased these pillows after having tried other pillows that were a disappointment. These pillows are GREAT!!!!!!!!!! I would tell anyone who is hesitant to go ahead and get them. They keep their shape and are so comfortable to sleep on.
These were thinner than I thought they would be...they pillow on the left of the photo looks very plump...but the pillow on the right of the photo is more of what it really is like. Looks great in the sham!!!
This pillow feels very soft and cushy when you first put your head on it, which I like, but then you eventually sink down further, so that at times the pillow may feel as though it comes up too far on either side of your head. It is OK to sleep on, but not as good as I had hoped. It seems really hard to find a pillow that is soft but supportive and that doesn't get flatter during the night or at least within a month or too.
I absolutely love the 26 x 26 pillows I purchased for my king sized bed. They fit beautifully. I've had them a few weeks and usually use them to prop myself up in bed for reading. They've kept shape so far! They came nicely packed, clean bright white, and true to the picture. Good buy.
I purchased a set of medium and a set of soft king and updated the bed in my house and at a furnished rental. I am pretty picky about pillows (says my husband), and I loved both sets. I put two med & two soft on our bed and really noticed a difference. The soft are not nearly as soft as you would see in a $100/pillow soft down. If you are looking for the type of soft that you can fold twice or smoosh into a small ball, these are not for you. I have one of those and I couldn't bear to give it to goodwill with the rest of my pillows, but in the month that I've had these, I've not used the old, worn, beloved down pillow even once. These overstock pillows were good to go right out of the box - no need to air them out - no funny smells. They are very puffy when sitting on the bed, but they smoosh down nicely when you lay your head on them. I sleep a combination of side & back. Both firmness levels are great, but I have developed a preference for the soft one. It tucks nicely under my neck while still supporting my head when lying on my back and allowing a comfortable neutral spine. Absolutely zero problems with either of these pillows and I usually reject new pillows within one-two nights.
As others have noted, these pillows don't look to be very substantial. Don't be put off by their appearance. Rest assured (pun intended), these pillows are *comfortable*! They provide excellent support. After the first night I slept on them, I woke up the next morning without my usual neck cramps or lower back pain.
Having used them now for over a month, I can say that these pillows were the best purchase I've made in a long while.
I won't buy any other pillows. I've bought 6 of these in the regular size and 2 in Queen size. Surprisingly the queen size were cheaper.
The main reason I bought them in the first place was because they have the most fill of any other pillow I have been able to find but then after buying my first two and seeing just how wonderfully comfortable, fluffy and soft they were, I had to buy more.
I have serious neck problems to the point where I have to get injections every few years and if I don't have the right pillows it can cause major issues so these are highly recommended if you want something that will be very soft, very comfortable but that will also support you while you sleep.
I needed to fill the 26 x 26 Tommy Bahama shams I had purchased and these filled the bill - inexpensive and filled the euros to the corner. TB like Restoration Hardware and others tend to have larger than 26 x 26 - weird sizes like 27 x 26 1/2. Shams are measured flat not filled and therefore you "lose" about an inch on either side when it is stuffed. This necessitates "sizing" up to get that fat, plump look we all desire. The same holds true for standard shams of 20 x 26 - best to stuff them with a standard queen of 20 x 28 or a queen size of 20 x 30. I realize that this is wordy but hopefully it will save the next person the amount of returns and aggravation I went thru due to sizing issues. Additionally the stuffer is inexpensive - they are for decoration only so why pay $$$$. Reserve those dollars for your sleeping pillow.
these are nice pillows. the fabric cover is soft. the pillow itself is much softer than i thought it would be. i sink right into it. which is nice sometimes, but if it want support, i have to use more than one of them,
When I first read the reviews I saw some people say these were smaller than expected, so I was nervous I was going to receive a pillow the size of a candy bar. I decided to place the order anyway and I am glad I did. These pillows are very comfortable and the same size as an average pillow.
I ordered two of these earlier in the year when I was diagnosed with dust mite allergies. These covers are great! They wash well too and don't have a weird plastic feel, like others I had read about. I was concerned that the material may be too hot for me... I have had nights where I wake up with a sweaty head in the middle of the night and certainly didn't want a product that would encourage more of that! I've had them for months now and have not had any problems. I just ordered another set!
I bought these for our guest room and when they arrived I was so pleased! I showed them to my husband and daughter, My husband said right away... You have to order more! (He wanted to keep these in our room and have me order more for the guest room) My daughter said she wanted a set of these for christmas! The value is wonderful, the appearance is great, the fabric is what I expected from a feather pillow, I will be putting a pillow protector over it plus a pillow case, the feathers are a bit crunchy, but thats' to be expected IT'S a FEATHER PILLOW!! I am buying 4 more sets of these for Christmas! I highly recommend these pillows!!!
When they arrived...2 king sized pillows arrived in a box that looked like it held one standard size pillow, so right away I thought no way, they sent the wrong thing...but they blew out of the box when i opened it, and then I figured they were supposed to be "extra firm"...how could they be? Well, they are, and they don't lose their shape. Amazing pillows. Tried everything else, so i figured why not try gel? Well, I wasnt disappointed! I really like them. I like firm pillows but don't like when they hurt your head...these don't do that...they are firm AND soft, if that makes sense. So, they are quite comfortable. I would highly recommend them!!!
This was not my first experience with a gel-filled pillow but I gave mine away to my son-in-law when he broke his neck. I missed my pillow and found these on Overstock and took a chance on them. I was very satisfied and happy to have my comfort back. I just don't get a good night's sleep without it. Its loft is consistent and it is always comfortable. I highly recommend it.
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.
Arrived promptly, as described. Nothing fancy, just basic pillow protectors. Look and feel great after laundering. Well constructed. Good value: 6 pack for a decent price. Now all of my bed pillows have protectors!
These have a real nice velcro backing behind the zipper and the reduce air flow actually adds to increasing the fluffiness of the old pillows. appears to work really well with allergen reduction and is sturdy, doesn't have any crinkle sound when laying on it.
Good pillow cases. Quality zippers and a good value.My only complaint is that they have a bit of a plastic feel. They make a little bit of noise when you move around on them, similar to crinkling paper. But I anticipate that will stop over time as I wash them more. Overall very happy.
I have purchased this pillow twice. I have one at home that I have used for over a year, and it's held up very well. My second purchase was for use while deployed in Afghanistan - I didn't want to try to mash the original back into a box! I was skeptical about it's flatness when I received the first one, but the pillow expanded to full shape within 10 hours, without any shaking or fluffing.
This is a firm pillow, which is what I was looking for. If you want something soft and fluffy, this is not for you. You can fold it over to lean against it to read, sleep on top of it or next to it. It is a good thickness to put between your knees and throw your arm over if you are a side sleeper.
Many people mention an odor that comes with the pillow. I did not find it overpowering, and after airing out for a day I can't smell it anymore.
You can use two regular pillowcases, one slid over each end, or a pillowcase made for a body pillow.
I believe this pillow is well worth the money, and would recommend it with no reservations.
