To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was looking for accent shams for my bed. I was not looking for something with massive amounts of support. I took the advice of people who said to buy a size up higher than the size of my pillow covers and bought 26 inch pillow inserts for my 25 inch pillow covers. It worked perfectly. Like other reviewers when I took the pillows out of the airtight package they inflated immediately. I left them alone for a while and then fluffed them and there was no problem with them assuming their normal size. They are working perfectly for what I needed which was a visual for a pretty bed. But if what you're looking for are firm pillows that will support you while you sit up in bed reading, these are not the right pillows for you. Otherwise, for the price they are excellent.
We bought a size up for added fluff. That’s what you do. Well, no matter how many times I fluff them, they become lumbar pillows. They don’t keep their shape. They are too soft of a filling and not enough fluff to keep them fluffed up. I did try. It’s just not worth the money for this brand. I’m not saying this to be a jerk, I’m saying it because I bought poly fill to help these pillows out and will end up just using poly fill. I plan on opening these guys and using the shell and then filling it with poly fill so they will hold a shape. Then sewing it back in. If you want to do all that, these are the pillows for you.
I read all the reviews complaining about how thin they are and I immediately ordered them. Personally, I think most pillow forms are way too thick these days. They may look nice but they are uncomfortable to actually use. A throw pillow is not supposed to hold your back six inches away from the back of your seat. I got the 12x20 ones to use as lumbar pillows for dining chairs and they are just the right thickness to provide a little cushioning for the natural curve of your back. I find them to be very comfortable.
Despite the multiple reviews that says the 18x18 fills an 18x18 cover perfectly fluffy, it does not. For my 20x20 covers I ordered 22x22 inserts and each size filled the respective cover just enough. If these inserts are only for looks and will not be used at all then they will be ok. If they will go in a pillow that will actually be used, don't bother. Not only do they not fill the pillow fluffy, they feel like they will go flat the first time they are used.
I bought these 28x28 inserts for a 26x26 sham and I'm glad I did. These inserts are perfect for that size. Anything smaller wouldn't be full enough to avoid the pillow being flat. The only problem I had was the fact they came out of the bag lumpy. One turned out okay but the second one made me kranky, so I have up for a while. Still, these pillows are a good value and I would buy them again.
I wanted a down alternative insert that kept the “karate chop” shape, without the down price. I read the reviews and several said just that, “holds karate chop” shape. They reviews and price were the reasons for my choice. The Pillows are soft but definitely don’t hold the shape I was looking for. If you want a decent inset for the price, and don’t care about the shape, this is your pillow. If you are looking for a Pillow that holds the “karate chop”, trust me, this is not it. I returned and went with down.
These pillows are extremely soft. They come in a bag with all the air sucked out but expand when you open it. The pillows give very very little support unless you stack them or fold them. I love flat pillows so for me it's perfect but for the average person that prefers firm/supportive pillows these are not for you
The description states the pillows are 18"x18" but the ones I received were only 15x15. WAY smaller than I was expecting. Wanted them to replace the ones that came with our loveseat, but the one I ordered are considerably smaller. The ones that came with loveseat are 18x18 so I was wanting same size. NOT TO HAPPY!!
