These don't seem like typical feather pillows to me. I think of feather pillows as squishy and have the ability to be molded into different shapes and heights. I can tell these pillows are good quality, but they are not like that. They are fairly plump with some give to them, but maintain their rectangular shape. I like them, but may search for an additional pair of pillows that are more typical (or at least what I think of as typical).
