Rated 3 out of 5 by Psmjr Down pillows misrated
We purchased a standard-size, medium down pillow and then a soft one. Both are more firm than their rating implies. The soft should be rated medium and the medium should be rated firm. Neither one fits easily into standard/queen pillow case, especially the medium pillow. That one had to go into a Queen size case, and even that is tight.. It is hard to stuff it in the case, even though the case is gusseted. There should be more room to let the down "relax" more. The pillow is very well made, with no odor and no down slipping out. The concern is that they are both too firm, and as such, not very comfortable.

As a side sleeper, I've been looking for a firm down pillow as a replacement for my old one. This pillow has been perfect from the moment it arrived. It supports my head and neck just right and have had the best nights sleep I've had in months. I have not had a stiff neck or discomfort since receiving it. A perfect pillow!

Rated 2 out of 5 by elktonmon Pillow too large for pillow case
Down pillows need to breathe. I have LL. bean pillow cases and this pillow has to be stuffed in! I wanted a soft flexible pillow; I tried it and woke up with a terrible neck. As a soft it is way too firm.I wish there was some thing not so firm. I have many earlier bought down pillows from LLbean. They are superior to this one. New is not always better.

This is a very well made pillow and the firmest I've found in my nationwide search. Unfortunately it was just a bit too firm for me so I've exchanged it for a medium firm, which I'm sure will be perfect.
I especially like that it's made in the USA.

The soft version of this goose down pillow is extremely comfortable. After trying the medium fill version, which seemed more like a firm, my wife and I chose the soft version. It has plenty of fill for cushioning but allows you to push the feathers into the most comfortable shape. Even though I'm a side sleeper, I can plump the feathers into a small mound on which to rest my head without feeling that a mass of compact feathers is pushing back against me. My only complaint is that the pillows arrived still smelling slightly of goose, unlike Bean pillows we bought years ago. After about two weeks the smell is no longer present. The pillow covering seems to be very high quality and densely woven, so we don't expect to have the down seep out, as it does with cheaper pillows. Your sleep should improve with Bean's sateen white pillow and you may even have better dreams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shenandoah1865 Nomination for pillow of the year
After years of searching, I finally found the perfect down pillow. This is fluffy, easily adjustable, firm enough without being too firm, no scent and clealy well made. I got a queen sized medium fill. Frankly, the price had kept me from buying before, but it is well worth it, considering the excellent quality. My insomnia is diminished. Queen sized pillow cases big enough to fit this side gusseted pillow are hard to find. I'd like to see LL Bean carry some beyond flannel, perhaps especially made for this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by FarmPrincess Wonderfully comfortable pillow!
After shopping for months to replace my old down pillow, I ordered this one in the soft, as I like a flatter pillow. It was slightly too soft, so returned it for the medium and it is absolutely heavenly. It is comfortable but also has enough neck support. I wish I had started with L.L. Bean in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smalltownboy expensive but worth it
I bought the medium fill. It is soft but provides good neck support. Personally, I find that "memory foam" type pillows feel weird and unyielding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveLLBean123 My Perfect Pillow
As a frequent traveler, I have opportunity to use a variety of high-end pillows. This pillow is equal to anything I've encountered in some pretty great hotels around the world. As a back sleeper, I find down filled to be the absolute best for my sleep need and THIS pillow sold by LLBean has been the best value for my money. I bought the medium fill...perfect for me!
