DOWNLITE is a manufacturer (based in the US), that is dedicated to supplying the world with down and feather bedding. The idea for the company came about when the founders realized that retailers and catalogs were selling almost identical products. They wanted to raise the bar, and make products that were above and beyond the others. DOWNLITE turned to the European tradition of using fine German milled fabrics and superior goose down fills.
DOWNLITE provides Pillows, Comforters, Blankets, Throws, Mattress Pads, Feather Beds, Fiber Beds, Pillow Forms, Sheets & Duvets, Robes, Shawls & Novelty Soft Textiles. The site offers a wonderful and informative article, Why Buy Down. There, you can read why Down is a great choice due to it being energy friendly, eco-friendly, practical and of great quality.
They have succeed in raising the bar and now manufacturer for stores and catalogs such as Eddie Bauer, Bloomingdales, Dillard’s, Nordstrom, Williams Sonoma, and Bed Bath & Beyond. And, if you buy direct from the manufacturer, you will be saving quite a bit.
I have to be extremely choosy when picking pillows. I have always had neck stiffness and muscle soreness in my neck that is acerbated by improper pillows. I have always used ones that were flat and lifeless, in order to ensure that my neck stayed aligned while I slept.
I received a Twin Pack PrimaLoft Pillows from DOWNLITE, which have a 300-count damask fabric. When hubby first opened the box, he immediately said, “You’re not going to like these!!!”. I was at first disappointed by how big and fluffy they were, looking like the type that I always avoid. But, being the good little product review that I am, I tried them out and risked a possible trip to the chiropractor the next day.
My opinion: I adore them! I have have never been able to use such fluffy and soft down pillows before. These are the first ones that are so comfortable, even with my history with neck soreness. They are huge, yet compress and surround your head in softness when you sleep – and I have been sleeping great! For those with sensitive skin, the products at DOWNLITE are purified and hypoallergenic as well.
