You Might Choose

Beyond Down If….

  • You are a side sleeper. Based on my experience I think both pillows can work for back and stomach sleepers but the 4.5” gusset on the Beyond Down pillow gives it that extra loft and boost that could make it work for side sleepers. It may not be enough support for everyone but side sleepers will find it more comfortable than the eLuxury Supply Hotel White Goose Down pillow.
  • You are on a budget. This pillow is on the more affordable side, under $50 for most sizes from most retailers. The eLuxury Supply goose down pillow is almost double the price.
  • You are allergic to down. The Beyond Down pillow is made of polyester fibers and is hypoallergenic. It gives you a similar feel to down but a better fit for those with allergies.

eLuxury Supply If …

  • You like luxurious bedding. There is a good ratio of down to feather in this pillow, making it high quality and helping to give it an overall luxurious feel.
  • You are a back sleeper who loves down. The pillow is designed for back and side sleepers, but in my experience, the level of filling and support makes it a better fit for stomach and back sleepers.
  • You want to treat yourself. This is more likely a master bedroom pillow than a guest room pillow. It is made to feel like a really nice hotel pillow and is priced accordingly. If you have the means to splurge this could be a great pillow to treat yourself to.

Overall

From my experience, both pillows feel great – deciding between the two really comes down to whether you want a pillow with real down or are satisfied with a down alternative version.

From my experience, stomach and back sleepers will be happy with either pillow, as you sink in and have that cozy feel of soft down and feathers in either pillow. Side sleepers may want to give the Beyond Down a try as its big 4.5” gusset does provide some height that might do a better job of supporting the head and neck (although it is still not a firm pillow).
