Down Damask Pillow is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 190.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells horrible I purchased this pillow a month ago and have been using it nightly. However, it has a strong smell that has not dissipated. I thought it might wear off, but no luck. Instead, it seems like the smell has gotten stronger. Today, I washed the pillow, hoping that would help. But, it still smells too strongly to sleep on it - like a poultry barn or mildewed feathers! I am highly disappointed in the quality of this pillow. I have another similar pillow from LLBean that I purchase 8-10 years ago and never had this problem. The quality seems to have decreased. I will have to look elsewhere for a good down pillow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEAVEN These pillows are the very essence of a down pillow. They are luxuriously comfortable and the ticking is a very good quality cover. The down has never escaped. Additionally, the pillows maintain their loft for a long time. I have owned about one hundred down pillows over the years because of family, college, house guests, etc. and I keep coming back to Bean's pillows because they are the best and the price is very reasonable for the value. I have owned both the soft and the medium and they are just as you would imagine each kind to be. So don't overthink your choice; just order what you want. You'll be safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COMFORTABLE My elderly mother had sores on both her ears that we were told would not go away. The nurses that treated her suggested a good down pillow and a satin cover may help. Well, the pillow was so soft and comfortable she felt like she was sleeping in a cloud. The sores went away and have never returned. After over a year of using the pillow she gave one to me as a Valentine gift. I LOVE it! I've always used down pillows but they started packing down so by morning I felt like I was sleeping on a soft rock. This Down Damask Pillow is amazing. It doesn't pack down overnight, it cuddles my head and is so very soft. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes down or feather pillows!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I bought this same pillow years ago and it was great- much larger, had the correct amount of goose feathers, etc. i loved it for years but needed a new one. When I opened the box when I got this one, I couldn’t believe how small it was! I measured it, and it was not just MUCH smaller than the one I bought before, it was smaller the the dimensions in the description. Also, this isn’t a medium, it’s a “soft”...very lightweight,hardly anything to it. I paid $139 for this. I gave it to my 3 year old granddaughter. Just her size. But I have to get a nice pillow somewhere else for myself. Unbelievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pillow When ever I spend the night away from home ,I always look at pillow labels,especially if they are super comfortable. So glad I did because this LL Bean pillow is the most comfortable and squishy pillow ever. I’ve had mine for many years now but had to buy my husband one because he kept stealing mine ! I recently bought one for my adult daughter, who likes to have a light pillow over her face during her migraine. And just this week I recommended it to my co worker for her husband, who can’t find the perfect pillow. If you like a soft light pillow this is the one!!! You won’t be disappointed. Thanks LL Bean!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same great pillow! This is my 5th down pillow from LLBean in the last 15 years. I purchased the standard soft pillow, same as I have for years. It is exactly the same pillow as my first pillow was yrs ago, even the fabric case is identical. The filling is perfect, but decreases over many yrs. I am not sure why some reviews say the pillows have a smell or odor, I have never experienced that. After reading that, I was concerned that these pillows were of lessor quality than my older ones. I thought I would take a chance and so happy that I did. Same high quality as before.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough fill; leaking feathers... I'm really sorry to write a bad review, but this pillow was just not well made and the fill was so "fragile," that it had no loft at all. I never knew that it would be so hard to replace the (cheap, as I recall!) down/feather pillows I bought at Macy's years ago on a whim. But they've never leaked feathers, and they are still both soft and supportive about more than 10 years. Sorry, but this pillow was already leaking a feather out of the seam (I didn't even lie on it!) and it is just does not have enough fill...sorry, but it's going back. :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Down Pillow First of all, I love most all LLBean products. I was looking for a pillow just like this one. It is soft, very soft, small so it can be easily squished into my carry-on, and is definitely down. However, it continues to shed down and I mean shed a lot. It is the covering that is not made of sufficient quality to keep the down inside. Small down is constantly on the bed, pillow case, and sometimes gets into my mouth or nose. My other down pillows from different vendors do not have this problem. Since this pillow meets my other expectations, I will keep it, but I will not order another one and will see if I can find a soft, standard pillow elsewhere. If it did not shed so much down, I would rate this pillow a 9.5. With the shedding a 4.5. P.S. I am still a loyal LLBean customer!
