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.
First off, opening this product was the most fun I've had in a while. The vacuum sealed packaging basically explodes when you open it, and the pillows inflate with unprecedented rapidity. It's a genuinely entertaining unboxing experience. With the right/secure pillowcase, this pillow can offer a ton of support. With the wrong pillowcase, you kind of sink into it a little bit more than you'd like. If you like a super sturdy or hard pillow this is not the pillow for you. I'd personally recommend memory foam for sturdiness. But for softness and if you like a little sinkage, this pillow is perfect, it's right in the middle of softness.
Received these inserts for my pillow covers that go on my bed and also my couch. When I opened it and they were air packed and flat, I was a little surprised and then I remembered a review that says when you cut open the plastic covering the pillows grow and that’s exactly what they did. Another review mentioned that they were starting to become flat after multiple uses; but I use mine primarily for decoration, so they are perfect for me. Another suggestion is that you order an insert 2 inches larger so that the pillow will be full and fluffy. Perfect!!!
When I first ordered pillows for inside my sofa cushions I did not read the instructions that you should buy a size larger than what the covers were. So, when I received the pillows, they were too small because they did not spread out enough to fill the pillow covers. I then ordered the pillows that were 2 inches larger than my covers and they fit perfectly and are really a great asset. I did not return the other pillows, but rather gave them to my granddaughter and her friend next door to play pillow fights!!! Good use for the pillows rather than using my good pillows.
We had down pillows on our couch that I loved the look of but couldn't stand they way they didn't hold their shape & the feathers constantly were coming out everywhere. I ordered these to put in the forms instead and absolutely love them. I've had them about 3 weeks now and they maintain their shape even after someone has leaned against them for several hours. They are a really solid pillow for a great price!
