A couple of years ago I purchased a nationally well known brand pillow. I continually woke up with shoulder and neck pain and often with a headache. I am a side sleeper. I bought the L.L. Bean medium pillow for my wife and she liked it so well I decided to buy my own. This is an amzing pillow! Because I am a side sleeper I bought a firm pillow. It's not hard, just comfortably firm. I have had the pillow for about 2 weeks. I no longer wake up with the shoulder and neck pain and wake more refreshed than anytime recently. THIS IS THE BEST PILLOW FOR ME..

I have arthritis in my neck and am prone to headaches - both of those are aggravated by how I sleep. My search for the perfect pillow has been extensive - trying every style and content that has been out on the market. This is the first pillow that truly works! Did it "cure" my arthritis and headaches - no - but it sure gives me a good night sleep!

My elderly mother had sores on both her ears that we were told would not go away. The nurses that treated her suggested a good down pillow and a satin cover may help. Well, the pillow was so soft and comfortable she felt like she was sleeping in a cloud. The sores went away and have never returned. After over a year of using the pillow she gave one to me as a Valentine gift. I LOVE it! I've always used down pillows but they started packing down so by morning I felt like I was sleeping on a soft rock. This Down Damask Pillow is amazing. It doesn't pack down overnight, it cuddles my head and is so very soft. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes down or feather pillows!

I bought this down pillow, even though we have a few others, because they last for many years and provide the best comfort for me, a sensitive sleeper. I now pack a down pillow in even carryon luggage for wherever I am going. Your pillow is top quality!

LL Bean rocks. I wasn't sure whether to buy the soft or medium, and customer service told me to order both and return the one that doesn't work.
I like a very soft pillow that molds to me (this replaces my tempurpedic), and I am very petite so I tend to use everything smaller than recommended. Even though I am a side-sleeper, I thought the soft might be the one for me. It turns out the medium is perfect. It's heaven.
The difference between the soft/med/firm is the amount of filling. The soft has very little, and the pillow is nearly flat (unless folded). The medium has significantly more down and is not flat but nice and fluffy. I suspect if you want the most support possible you'd want the firm.
Best advice I saw in the reviews: Make sure to fluff the pillow when you get it and every night. It's like sleeping on a cloud.
My eight year old, who had been using a very flat foam pillow, loved the feel of the down and I kept the soft one for him. He sleeps on his back.
I also bought the $15 pillow protector so I could wash that rather than having to wash the pillow often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by leem17 Worth the search
After a long and frustrating search: finally found some perfect pillows. The search began at a renowned, big box chain store, where I tried three different pillows (ranging from $25 to $80); none had the combo of soft down + firm support I was looking for. Time to try LLBean. I initially ordered two medium down damasks and a soft down chamber pillow. I returned the down chamber (did not like at all) and one of the down damasks: The medium damask was in all ways satisfactory, but as I knew my husband and I would benefit from a little more support, I went on to order two firm down damask pillows. They're not exactly "firm"; they just have more down and squish down less than the medium does. I still love both the medium and the firm, but ultimately prefer the latter. It's perfect. Next time I might get a queen instead of the standard, for more hugability. True, these are far from inexpensive. But for me, they're completely worth it, and now I know exactly what to get if I ever need new pillows again.

I ordered this as a replacement for a medium, which I returned because it had too much loft to be comfortable, though I am a side-sleeper. I am returning this one as well. I tried it one night and put it right back in the box. It has so little support I might as well not have a pillow at all! I like the quality of the pillow otherwise, but found it unusable at both down densities I tried.

I waited one year for this pillow! I needed a Queen size Soft
For myself. It is all I desired.

My wife and I both love these pillows--consistency, size, etc. You almost feel they are a little too small, but really they have a kind of gentle, accommodating texture and size that turns out to be just right. Not cheap, but worth it--we plan on using them for a long time
