I have dust mite allergies and bought these new pillows along with allergy pillow protectors. I have been using for 2 weeks now and love them. I think they are helping my allergies. Pillows so far have kept their fluff. I'll see with time if they last but for the price they are worth it! I was worried that the pillow would have a noticable scent but I haven't noticed any scent at all. I would recommend these and in the future will be buying more for other beds in my house.
