I bought the super-standard size of these pillows after reading all the great reviews. I was disappointed when I received them. You can feel the feather stems inside, and the pillows are very, very flat. They also have a "birdy" smell. I put them outside on laundry rack for a few hours to air them out, and then put each in the dryer for 10 minutes with a softener sheet. That helped a little. These pillows will be fine inside decorative shams on the bed - and for the price, they were still a good value for that. Still, I need a new sleeping pillow and I've learned my lesson to look in person from now on! Also, the pillows in the picture are not the one's you'll receive. These pillows are flat, and gusseted, with a navy piping around the edge. There are so many five-star ratings of these pillows that it leads me to believe two different product lines are perhaps being used to fill orders for this item. There's just no way all those five-star ratings could be about the same pillows that I received.
