How to size Pillow inserts

What Size Pillow Insert Do I Need?

Synthetic Down Pillow Inserts Weight Chart

  • Synthetic down pillows weigh about 2.5 times the weight of a traditional pillow.
  • Fiber is the most expensive part of a pillow, if you see a competitor selling a synthetic down pillow for slightly more than a traditional pillow I would be cautious of the type of filler they are using and if it really feels like down.

MY FAVORITE 08/22/2023
By Phyllis Souter
Whenever I need a pillow insert, Pillowflex Down Alternative is always my first choice. The filling used is super-fine, soft, & stays blended inside the insert without getting lumpy, even with consistent use. I have opened several of these inserts in order to customize the size of insert exactly to my application. I am always amazed at how much better quality the fill material is as compared to any other insert (I have used many others in the past). Sizing of the inserts are consistently accurate. Insert cover fabric is a soft, sturdy poly/cotton blend. Yes, Pillowflex is generally higher-priced, but I gladly choose that over a pillow that is a constant frustration due to lack of quality. I always choose an insert 2 inches larger than my pillow cover for maximum plumpness. IMO Pillowflex Down Alternative is tops!

Perfect pillows! 10/13/2023
By Tricia Casson
These are the perfect fluffy pillows! They work great for the "karate chop method" to make the pillows look fluffed and picture perfect. The sizing chart for recommended pillow inserts for pillow cover size is reliable - highly recommend checking out the sizing chart before purchasing.
