    Hi there,

    I'm looking for good pillows and wondered if any of you know which ones I should go for.

    I've bought many before in my search for the ONE but they all always end up as flat as a pancake or get lumpy etc.
    I want a comfy one that stays in shape, not too big and not too flat.

    I don't want duck feathers as they tend to get through the fabric and sting your face.

    Any recommendations ?

    thats odd, the missus bought some from dunholme yesterday as she didnt like the fact my pillows are flat. they were on sale 2 for a fiver, but she got herself some fluffier ones :rolleyes: priorities eh?

    to me a pillows a pillow, they get flat after a while so I buy a bunch and stuff em on top of each other when they are flat. sat night I had 3 pillows under my head, last night I had two and it was twice as high! shows how much they flatten!

    Spent money on some pillows from John Lewis. Got two siberian goose pillows, and some fibre ones for below.

    Sleep like a baby, so can't complain!

    Once (through work) stayed in a hotel which had a menu (yup, that's right a menu) of pillows. You had 8 (count 'em, 8) to choose from!

    Got some Siberian Goose feather ones too. They are fantastic but expensive! :smashin:

    I have one of those Dream Wizard pillows that have an air insert that support your neck, although not as utterly fantastic as they make out I really would not be without it and just recently bought a spare insert just incase the old one springs a flat. But you do also need a pillow inside as well.

    I had my stag do in Hull and stayed overnight at The Portland...it was ok if a little old fashioned...but I can barely remember it...(off topic I know)...

    I rarely use a pillow, they twist my neck so usually I sleep flat on my back, head on the matress.

    Has anyone invented a pillow that is perminently cool? That would be a way to make a million...

    My only advice is to remember that you spend a third of your life asleep.

    Therefore, spend well on high quality stuff!

    "The quality is remembered long after the price has been forgotten."

    Just to echo pringtef below, we also got some really good pillows from John Lewis - they had a really good selection.

    I've recently bought a couple of buckwheat filled pillows,one for me and one for the girlfriend,they are amazing,I've never slept as well,really comfy and stay really cool.There a bit like a bean bag for your head
    They can be a little noisy,when you move your head,but you get used to that.
    I bought mine off Ebay,cost me about £30 for 2,which was a bargain,Bupa sell them for £34 each :eek:
    Have a look

    Thanx guys (and girls ?).

    So do your pillows keep their shape ? I looked at John Lewis and found some duck/goose down ones that seem nicer than "plain" fathers as it's less likely to sting through the pillowcase.
