For years my husband & I would buy pillows, only to come home & be disappointed not only with the comfort but the price we'd spend on pillows hoping they would be better than the last set we purchased. We have had these pillows now for over 6 months. They're not only the most comfortable & afforfdable pillows we've purchased, they've retained their firmness & shape! When these first arrived my husband scowled at the thought of purchasing pillows over the internet. It only took one night of use to change his mind. We're finally able to throw out the 4-6 pillows we used to use, replacing them with just these 2 pillows. I still can't believe it, I would definitely recommend these pillows!
