Re: best down pillow question

@Hoovermom 

 

Thanks for the info.    We don't have Costco here but I did order a pillow from Pacific Coast during their flash sale.

Update: 

 

I got an email from them tonight saying they oversold the pillow and basically not to count on getting it.  I'm really disappointed but there's nothing anyone can do about it.

MANY years ago- QVC sold DOWN PILLOWS- They always showed a film how they were washed in a giant machine and they were the best pillows in the world! I think they were a hotel brand pillow- but I don't know which- DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THOSE PILLOWS? And are they available somewhere??? They were the best ever. I just can't seem to find any bed pillows that are comfortable for my old bones now!! They say they are side sleepers or back sleeps or stomach sleepers-- WHO STAYS IN ONE PLACE ALL NIGHT LONG???? I need an side/back sometime stomach sleeper pillow like the Q used to sell!!!

@sipp @I order from the supplier of the down pillows you refer to. The pillows are not as great as they used to be because costs have gone up. I still order the all down soft and medium pillows from Pacific Coast or Pacific Coadt Down. They might feel flatter when you remove from the packaging but they puff up soon. Their casing is great. Does not all w any poke through and feels cool to the hand. They also sell pillow covers. The pillows last around three years these days. This company was the provider of down pillows for many hotels. Don't expect the extreme quality of yore but you can expect to have your neck aches go away in a few days. They are not as full as in the past. I order two at a time. Prices are reasonable. They are nicely packed in their own zippered bags. I'll be ordering again in August.

 

INHO, Scandina Down is very over priced.

Re: best down pillow question

@Bridgegal UPS delivered my pillows yesterday and I couldn't be happier!  I bought a pair of the gusseted down surround pillows in medium firm, really nice weight. Not so heavy you can't flip or scrunch them during the night.

 

The packaging does say hyperclean and the attached tag says the contents are sterile. 

 

I did call their CS about another product and they said inventory is low on some items due to strong demand.

 

Wait for a flash sale & stalk prices for a good deal.

I got an email this afternoon saying that my pillow has shipped.  I'm so glad I didn't cancel, which was an option.  Enjoy yours.

@sipp    Try The Company website.  Their down pillows I looked at are all guaranteed for life.  Read the reviews.

Re: best down pillow question

@sipp   Check out The Company Store.  I purchased a down pillow and a cooling mattress pad/topper.  Their annual sale may still be going on but not sure.  Great savings.  The pillow I purchased had 4 different firmness.  Since I am a back sleeper, medium was suggested for me.

Re: best down pillow question

I have my original featherbed from NN with the eurofeathers from a million years ago preserved in an allergy cover.  I have wanted to replace it forever but never found one I liked.

 

I will check out the suggestions here.
