We have 6 pillows on our bed. I've found that you generally get what you pay for in a pillow, the more expensive pillows being proportionately better than cheaper pillows.

We like these "down surround" pillows, which have a feather core surrounded by goose down. They have the right firmness and a great "scrunch" factor.

I can not stand polyester or polyester fill pillows.

Are you a pillow connoisseur? Do you care what type of pillow you put your head on at night?

As long as they contain duck and goose foliage I am happy.

I saw these pillows in some catalog we got in the mail...

Heirloom goose down - King size - $3500 EACH!

I'm wondering what an heirloom goose is like.

Maybe like an heirloom tomato.
My husband is allergic to the down near his face; he sneezes and his eyes swell. We have to use synthetic fill, and I get the ones that have extra loft, for side sleepers, which both of us are.

I have four standard sized pillows on our bed. Because I have "issues", I buy new pillows and replace the old ones whenever I feel like it which works out to probably 3 or 4 times a year.

Needless to say, hyper-expensive pillows are not really an option.

The ducks and geese only molt once a year. So If they are good enough for ducks for a whole year why not for people?

Uhm...what kind of "issues" do you have about pillows?

They are germy. Usually I can overlook this kind of thing if I put my mind to it but a pillow is right on your face!

Since there is no really good solution to the cleaning issue, I just buy new ones. :)

I guess you don't have "knee pillows".

We both sleep on our sides, and each have a pillow to put between the knees so they don't rub together.

You're kidding? she prolly would have no problem ripping the feathers off herself if she could save a buck. :p

I googled it anyway. I've never heard of them; they look like foam wedges for people who aren't very flexible themselves.

Well, you were the one who said they were getting older.

Oh for goodness sakes. As far as I know, pillows mean nothing to me. I prefer a flat one, or none at all. I like to wrap my elbow around one flat pillow, and that is all.

Who could possibly sleep with lots of pillows??? yuk!!

I build a fortress around me with 4 regular pillows. 1 under my head, 1 in between my legs, 1 over my head and 1 between the wife and me (She sleep hits. Or at least that's what her excuse is :mad:)
