It can sometimes be tricky to find the perfect combination of pillow inserts and pillow covers that fit each other. The size pillow insert you need for your pillow cover depends on the fill material. There are many different types of pillow fill materials. We sell three different types: 10/90 down feather, 25/75 down feather, and craft polyester. To help you choose the best combination of pillow insert size and pillow cover size, we created these helpful charts in our Pillow Insert Fit Guide.
DOWN FEATHER INSERT GUIDE
We sell two different types of down feather inserts. These different types will give you different looks. The 10/90 down feather insert is plumper and stiffer. This is the best type to choose if you want a fuller look without stressing the seams. The 25/75 down feather insert is softer, but still a good choice for a decorative pillow. These inserts look more relaxed and boho. Both types of down feather inserts look best with a pillow cover of the same size.
This will help you find the pillow style you want while also protecting your pillow cover. You invested in this pillow cover! Using the best type of insert will help your pillow cover last for a long time.
We recommend down feather inserts for the combination of firmness, weight, body and support, softness, and comfort.
CRAFT POLYESTER INSERT GUIDE
Polyester inserts are a good choice if you suffer from allergies or asthma. To achieve a full look, you will want to choose a cover that is 2 inches smaller than your insert. This will help give it the plump look of a 10/90 down feather insert. For a more bohemian relaxed look, choose a pillow cover that is the same size as the insert.
You can stuff a larger insert into your pillow cover with craft polyester inserts because they are less full than down feather inserts. The same size insert and pillow cover naturally give you a relaxed boho look. You will have to use a different size if you want a plumper look.
