  • FAQ


    • How long can I expect my pillow to last?

      As a rule of thumb, you should replace your synthetic-filled pillows about every two years, however, check out our care instructions on how to keep your Pillow Guy Down Alternative Pillow lasting fresh and longer. A good way to test to see if it's time for a new pillow is by folding your pillow in half and put a shoe on top (maybe clean it first) If the shoe flips off, your pillow is good.

    • How soon will my pillow be shipped after I place an order?

I love my PG Pillows!

I love my new pillows but honestly I was just a little disappointed. Eight years ago I had bought some PG pillows online and have loved them for so many years. NOTHING can replace them. After so many years of loving these pillows it was time to replace them so I ordered the side sleeper pillows for my replacements. When they came in I was so excited but after opening the package they seemed small. I let them air out for 48 hours and they still aren’t as thick and dense feeling as my old ones but hey I’m still happy with my purchase and they help me sleep extremely well!

Hi Steven,

Thank you for your honest review of the pillows. I wanted to reach back and advise that it may be helpful to put your pillows in the dryer on a low heat/Air Fluff cycle with some clean tennis balls to help your pillows expand even further. This is a personal trick I do every few months since I sleep on those exact pillows and it gets them right back to where they first started. It's fantastic.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Thanks again,

King Size Pillows

The pillows are softer than what we typically use. It has taken a while to get used to them, but we have adjusted.
