Rated 5 out of 5 by kynance64 White goose down pillows
Both the regular size soft and the queen size medium are excellent pillows. I have both on my bed. I have not had any problems with either one. They are very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PWCLover Great pillow - wish I had the right pillowcase
I read the reviews associated with this pillow. Quite a few reviewers indicated the soft was firm enough for their tastes so I decided to try the soft even though my preference is for a firmer pillow. I did not like it. While I feel the soft wasn?t a bad option as far as support, I felt it was too flat. There just wasn?t enough fill in it. So I ordered a medium and was much happier with it. It has more fill yet I didn?t feel it was too hard or stuffed. I am a petite person yet my head can make a nice indent in the pillow. But what I do like is that it is plumper.
I ordered the queen size and, like many of the other reviewers, do have a similar complaint of LL Bean: that they do not offer an appropriate sized pillowcase to hold their queen-sized pillows. I found that the pillow protector was fine. The zipper across the length instead of the width made it much easier to use. However the standard pillowcase is really not the right size. I was able to get the pillow into my sateen pillowcase but it was a tighter squeeze than I had with my previous queen-sized pillows. I don?t think it adversely affected the pillow, though. In other words, the tightness of the pillowcase did not compress the feathers and cause the pillow to become hard and un-fluffy.
The dimensions of the queen pillow are supposedly 20? x 30? ? yet the 2 inch gusset results in this pillow being bigger in the middle than the traditional ones. The standard pillowcases are 21? x 31?. These dimensions are not adequate for this queen-sized pillow. More width is needed; the length is definitely too short. If LL Bean wants to use one case for both standard and queen, they should extend the dimensions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Creellady Best pillow ever used!
I have purchased many pillows from LLBean. Some less expensive and not the quality/cost of the Sateen White Goose Down. I bought this pillow as a gift for my son. He is a large guy and needs something substantial. I actually tested all the pillows at the Freeport store before making my purchase online. My son likes a soft pillow but not too soft. He said, "It's the best pillow he ever used." Worth every penny to make a son happy!

Tried the firm pillow but it was a little too firm for my sleeping positions, I exchanged the firm for the medium and found it to be perfect. I am a side and stomach sleeper. The medium is the right thickness for side sleeping and is not too thick for stomach sleeping.

I first purchased this pillow in medium as per recommendation of customer service. Tried it for a couple of months and just did not like it. Felt more like firm...no give at all and very dense. What a great company this is. I called with my problems and was immediately assured that it would be addressed. And so it was. To my amazement, I was able to return it and get the soft one in instead. No hassle whatsoever. I absolutely love this pillow. Can't wait to go to bed at night to enjoy it's great comfort. Just be advised that the levels of firmness are a little misleading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SSMaine Plush, very firm
I have been on a pillow quest for what seems like a very long time. I wish I thought to blog about it when I first started if only to help others......This pillow came as promised, was generously full, no odor and had a sateen cover which seem to give it a bit extra firmness. I wanted very badly to like this pillow but found in the middle of the night I would be reaching for my old pillow due to the extreme firmness of this pillow. If i had a mirror, I bet my neck was not parallel to the bed but angled toward the ceiling. I am a side sleeper so I always go for the 'firm' support but in this case it was just a bit too firm. I returned it and ordered the medium. I still cannot believe I am spending this much for a pillow but, I figure I can invest in something that works or give my money to a chiropractor........I love LL Bean products and their commitment to stand behind what they sell. I'm crossing my fingers that the medium will be the winner!

Rated 3 out of 5 by LongtimeBeansfan Soft standard 700-fill down pillow
A good pillow is hard to find. I ordered the soft standard because I sleep in all positions and that was the recommended type. And I committed to keeping this pillow even though it is expensive because I got it on sale and with a coupon and wanted to give some time to try it out. I've never owned a down pillow but have slept on ones that are very comfortable but that are much more expensive. The positive thing about this pillow is that it seems well made and fluffs up really nicely. However it also packs down during the night and I have to re-fluff it. Also when fluffed it is very full and puffy and fits tightly in a standard size pillow case and that makes it feel firmer. The soft is fairly firm to begin with. Furthermore the label states that it has guaranteed 75% down fill; no idea about the other 25%. For these reasons I would not personally recommend this pillow to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jumpingjoecool Excellent pillow and particularly for the price
Great, firm down pillow. May be a bit short compared to regular length pillow, but wouldn't hesitate to buy again. I'm a side-sleeper and pillow fussy.

Totally worth the price. My sleep quality and neck pain have dramatically improved. Soft, easy to get into just the right shape, a joy to sleep on.
After years of getting expensive well-known brand of memory foam pillows (and changing them every year or two) I found they weren't helping anymore and actually giving me new neck pain. Glad I switched to goose down!
