These pillows arrived half compressed inside a heavy plastic bag. There was no odor. The advice is to allow the pillows to rest for 48 hours (I think it was 48 - I misplaced the little tag) to achieve their loft and then to fluff. I did this, and they are perfect. I'm a side sleeper, and I can punch my little mountains exactly where I want in the pillow without lifting my head. No crunching sounds of feathers. I don't think they can be beat for the price.
I bought a set of these pillows two years ago and have been looking for another set in the same price range for two years now. I finally found them and I sleep in heavenly peace every night. They are such high-quality and like I said, I bought a set up to two, two years ago and have never, ever had a problem with feathers coming out and they stay plump and fluffed up almost all the time. I may fluff them once a month if needed. The set of pillows I bought two years ago are still in perfect condition. I only bought another set because I wanted four pillows on my bed as I'm a side sleeper. They never shed feathers because of the piping in the stitching as well as the quilted, double stitched cover. These are absolutely fantastic! I recommend anyone looking for a feather pillow to definitely and absolutely buy these. They would also be a great housewarming gift especially to a newly married couple or a young person getting out of college and starting their life in a new home. You can't find this quality at that price of $*for a set of two in any store. There also was no odor at all and they didn't need to sit out for 48 hours to "fluff up" either, I slept on them the same night that I receive them. I am more than happy, I'm over the moon! Thank you *you're the greatest!
This is the most amazing pillow I have ever found. It is the perfect medium fill. Now keep this in mind...if you like giant pillows that prop your neck up in an unnatural cervical curve, then you probably won't like this pillow. However, if you like your spine in a natural position with what feels like fluffy clouds cuddling your head while you dream of sweet comfort then you will LOVE this pillow. My boyfriend and I are so so so so happy with this purchase.
Nice goose feather and down pillows
Nice Goose Feather Pillows!
My wife will not use anything other than a white goose feather pillow. This was a hit as I gave them to her.
You can keep my pillow this goose down pillows are for me
I use these every night. They are the perfect loft for me as a side sleeper. The item description is accurate.
If your prefer down pillows and tend to sleep on your side, this pillow set is for you. These might be larger than your pillow cases, but worth buying some to fit these. They are not the typical fluffy down pillows. These are somewhat compact and stitched so all the feathers don't move to the ends. They're medium firm and were comfortable my first night using them. Have only had them one day but am pleased with my purchase, so far. Since this is hardly my first purchase of 'down' , was pleasantly surprised by the price and quality. Need more to refresh the quest room.
Great Pillows Soft yet firm at the same time. The right amount of Goose Feathers. My Husband also gave it a 5 star best night sleep we both had in a long time. This is a pillow I will take where ever I travel because I’ve never had a pillow this comfortable.
I am picky at quality and comfort for price paid. I like down but these maybe 5% down and 95 percent feather fill. They are say 5 inches loft. I think of them as comfortable as my fond memories as My Grandma's home as a kid. I needed more lumbar support for a sofa and also use for sleep as a back sleeper. I think they are a great pillow and comfortable pillow for the low price point. BUY!
Delivered quickly and well packaged. After opening the packaging the pillows fluffed right up, I did not need to wait 48 hours as the product notes stated. There was also no smell which was nice. A few feathers escaped the pillow while putting it into a case, but nothing excessive. Only wish was that they stayed a little more fluffed while laying on them, they tend to flatten relatively fast. Overall good product for the price.
Yes, these pillows do smell funny when you receive them...it is the plastic. Take them out and air them for about a week. These are well made with details like gusseted edges and quilted tops. They fluff up nicely and compress where needed. Love my new feather pillows!
Just received these pillows last week. Even though I let them fluff for two days, they remain fairly flat and hard. The covering is thick, and whether it's that fabric or the stiff feathers inside, the pillows make a scrunching noise when you put your head on them. They are nothing like the soft, fluffy down pillows I've had from Overstock in the past, and I'll have to use them as leg pillows. Very disappointed.
I wanted to try a feather pillow since I sleep hot and read that feather pillows might offer better airflow (and hence cooling) than standard polyfill pillows, so I tried these. They're not terrible, but they're not great either---as a couple of other reviewers noted, they are quite firm and really don't feel like a feather pillow at all. If you are looking for a firm pillow, you might like these---but I was hoping for a little more "give" in the pillow. On the plus side, they do fluff up reasonably well if you shake them out after you've slept on them--but I now use these only for support while reading, not for actual sleeping. I wouldn't buy these again, but you may have a better experience if you know that what you're looking for a pillow that is on the firmer side...
These pillows were just what I was looking for.They are soft, yet hold their shape when in use. They are quiet, without the crunchy sound some feather pillows can, they did not give off any odors as some feather products sometimes do. Yes, I would recommend these pillows to a friend.
ExCeLLeNt Quality Value !!! Feather and down (5% goose down) pillows that are well packed yet just soft enough to be the, "Ahhhhh! (especially on ones side)" of the reason one bought it (besides, full is good because over time all feather pillows break down and compress). Further, the pillow case material and construction is not in the least haphazard: it is of the best materials and seamstress attention; something one would expect in a five star penthouse suite. They are a wonderful feather plus down pillow at a great price.
I don't often write reviews. In fact this may be my first! I wanted to enjoy this product! I allowed the 48 hour time to air out the pillows once released from the plastic seal. One of the pillows air our perfectly fine and was able to put it to use soon after. But, as for the second pillow not so much! After giving it 4 days to air our it somehow smelled worse than before. Smelled more like mold and farm goose feathers and the smell lingered all throughout my room, it was gag worthy. I ultimately threw it out, which is upsetting because I paid for a pair. Other than that its works well as the product is intended to be. Maybe I just got a foul batch.
Very happy with my soft very adjustable goose feather pillows. One best sleep items you can purchase for comfortable good notes sleep. With no neck problems.
NICE PILLOWS. GOOD SUPPORT. 100% COTTON COVERS.
