Feather Pillows for Side Sleepers
Side sleepers really need to fill the area between the crown of the shoulder and the side of the head. We like to call this area the ”Comfort Gap”. The broader your shoulders the larger the ‘Comfort Gap’. The softer your mattress the smaller the “Comfort Gap.” Side sleepers typically need either firm pillows or extra firm pillows. You be the judge but remember the “Comfort Gap” distance does change depending on the width of your shoulders and firmness of your bed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a goose down pillow?
Goose down pillows are pillows primarily made using goose down clusters. Down is primarily used to trap air, in order to keep the goose warm. At Down and Feather Company, we use only the finest Hungarian white goose down. The clusters that we use are located near the chest of the bird, because they are soft, light, and durable. Only the best down pillows are made using Hungarian white goose down found closest to the chest of the bird.
Q: What makes a down pillow unique?
The first thing to understand, is what a down pillow actually is, and how it differs from a feather pillow. Down comes from the area between the skin and feathers of a goose. Down & Feather Co. Hungarian white goose down clusters are much softer, lighter and longer lasting than feathers.
So, what does that mean for you? As all of us know, the most comfortable time for a pillow is right when you lay your head on it for the evening. Because of the nature of down, your pillow will maintain that shape and temperature longer, maximizing your comfort level.

On average, an adult will spend 25-33% of their lives asleep. This is a time that many of us take for granted, but that is a mistake. For the time that we are awake, we spend it trying to surround ourselves with a comfortable living space. From our furniture, to the clothes that we wear, most people are looking to be comfortable. So why do a lot of people not take the same approach for the times they are asleep?
Q: What's the difference between down and feather pillows?
The primary difference is you will sleep 'IN' our down pillows and 'ON' our feather pillows. Using only the finest Hungarian white goose down allows us to create the the most luxurious down pillows.
