Pillows arrived compressed in plastic wrapping, but spring to full thickness within minutes of opening package. Fit well into pillow cases that came with comfort seat. They are being used on guest bed, so they haven't gotten a lot of use, but they have retained their shape and plumpness. They work nicely for what they were intended for.
I needed a set of firm pillows for a new set of standard pillow shams in my master bedroom. Although I don't sleep on them (I have a special pillow for side-sleepers), I use them daily to prop up in bed and read or watch TV. So, the pillows get a lot of use and need to be firm, but need to have some "give;" I don't want to feel as if I am leaning up against a stone wall. The Sealy Cotton Sateen pillows have been very comfortable thus far. They "spring back" well after use and have not shown any tendency to get matted down; I don't constantly have to get up and "re-fluff" them. So far, I am pleased with my purchase. Overstock shipping was very fast.
These covers make it harder to shape my down pillows to my preferred comfort level. They also tend to contain "air" inside them unlike my other regular cotton covers.
