Almost too soft

LANGRIA prides itself on providing chic, quality products that don’t cost a fortune, and the LANGRIA Luxury Hotel Collection Down Alternative Pillows are no exception. While many down-alternative pillows are priced at $50 or more per piece, this two-pack from LANGRIA costs significantly less. But to be sure that quality wasn’t compromised a cheaper price tag, we put these popular pillows to the test. Are they really as comfortable as their more costly counterparts, or do you get what you pay for? Read on to find out.
Material and Weave: Feathery but not feather-filled
Walk down the bedding aisle at most department stores, and you’ll find that the majority of pillow offerings are either down or down-alternative. While a down pillow is made from plumage from ducks and geese (and therefore costs more money), down-alternative pillows are synthetic and often a bit more breathable. The LANGRIA Luxury Hotel Collection Down Alternative Pillows have a dense cotton shell with a 233 thread count and contain 28 ounces of polyester fiberfill. Bright white in color, the cushions immediately give an impression of cleanliness—an important quality when choosing bedding. They’re also hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, and odor-free, making them ideal for allergy sufferers or those who are sensitive to chemical smells.
Texture: Like a cloud
The outer shell of the LANGRIA Luxury Hotel Collection Down Alternative Pillows looks expensive and well-stitched and feels soft and cool to the touch. The pillows themselves are substantial and fluffy, giving the sleeper a cloud-like, “sinking” sensation, which may not satisfy those who like a firmer feel. We had a hard time sleeping on the product for an entire night due to its super-soft texture. However, if you prefer plush pillows, you will likely love the feathery texture. They retain their shape nicely and are easy to fluff up as needed. For this reason, they’re also perfect for decorative use inside pillow shams.

Washing: Need a professional
These pillows don’t come with a zippered, removable shell, and LANGRIA recommends professionally laundering the entire pillow. This wasn’t a dealbreaker for us, as we don’t find ourselves needing to wash full pillows frequently. Plus, you can preserve the condition of your pillows by covering them with a zippered pillow cover and pillow case and washing those regularly.
Price: A steal
With a reasonable price tag (around $30 for two pillows!), the LANGRIA Luxury Hotel Collection Down Alternative Pillows are an ideal option for sleepers seeking a soft place to rest their heads. They’re also perfect for pillow shams in guest rooms or on a child’s bed, especially one who has allergies. Their look and feel is excellent for their price point.

LANGRIA Luxury Hotel Collection Down Alternative Pillows vs. Beckham Hotel Collection Gel-Pillow 2 Pack
The Beckham pillows are made with plush gel fiber, which is marketed as “no-shift” construction, meaning the pillows conform to your head and neck. They also claim to be mold- and mildew-resistant, but several reviewers complained that their orders arrived already moldy. The LANGRIA Luxury Hotel Collection Down Alternative Pillows are cheaper, and while some reviewers complained that they were on the soft side, mold was not an issue. Beckham does offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, while LANGRIA will replace the product within 30 days if there are any issues.
