How to choose a down pillow density

How to choose a down pillow density

Here’s a quick lesson on the differences between the densities: soft, medium, firm, and extra firm. I also like to talk about the densities in terms of thickness in terms how much down stuffing is in each shell. You’re going to see that I like to refer to soft as thinner, thin, thicker, and thickest, for soft, medium, firm, and extra firm. 


When you’re choosing a down pillow by density, look at the seam lines and notice how the seam lines are a little bit higher, because there's more down in each pillow. As we go from thin to thick, they progressively get thicker. Alternatively, if we're going from extra firm to soft, they're getting slightly thinner. Hopefully that helps you choose a down pillow density and exactly what the different densities do in terms of thickness.
