If you love having your bed look as inviting as ones in a 4 or 5-star hotel, these pillows are for you. And, if after a long day you like to take a book and read before going to sleep, you'll wonder how you ever got by without having these wonderful European goose-down pillows. I own a set and I bought these for my sister. She loves them! She also migrates them to her living room sofa when she pops in a DVD on a Saturday night. Another necessary indulgence that's affordable, about half the price than you'd find at other stores and twice the quality.
I bought some new pillows and wanted to try using pillow protectors, so I don't have to wash the pillows so often. These look like they have stiff ivory colored fabric in the picture, but in reality, they have true white fabric that's soft to the touch, they don't make any sound at all, which is something I was worried about thinking how waterproof usually means plastic materials. I tried them for a couple of weeks and as much as I like the idea of being able to wash just the pillow case and pillow protector instead of a whole pillow, I took them off and am not using them anymore. My new pillows are soft and squishey like a bunch of clouds, which feels great, reminds me of those hotel pillows that you just sink into, but using the pillow protectors on such pillows takes the fluff out of them, once squished they don't bounce back as quickly as they normally do without the protectors. I would recommend this to people using firmer pillows, not fluffy airy ones, as it might obstruct air flow and flatten them down when laying on them. After taking off the pillow protectors and back to using just regular pillow cases, the pillows bounced back to normal, so no permanent damage done to the pillows.
These are just your average protectors. I thought they would be much softer after I washed them. They are hot through my pillowcase. I don't run a hotel and they are probably made to protect the pillows from more abuse then my pillows get.
