Who Might Choose

Beyond Down

  • Side sleepers. Based on my experience, both pillows will appeal to back and stomach sleepers. That being said, the 4.5” gusset on the Beyond Down pillow gives it that enhanced loft and an extra boost of filling that could make it work for side sleepers with heavier body types. It may fall short on providing support for everyone but side sleepers will find it more comfortable as compared to the eLuxury Supply Hotel White Goose Down pillow.
  • Those on a budget. This pillow is on the less expensive side, under $50 for most sizes from a variety of retailers. This is far more affordable compared to the eLuxury Supply goose down pillow, which is almost double the price.
  • Those who are allergic or have sensitivities to down. The Beyond Down pillow is made of polyester fibers and is hypoallergenic, so it gives sleepers a similar feel to down but makes for a much better fit for those with allergies.

eLuxury Supply

  • Those who prefer luxurious bedding. There is a good ratio of down to feather in this pillow, making it high quality and promoting that luxurious feel of a hotel pillow.
  • Back sleepers who love 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.
  • Shoppers who want to treat themselves. This is really more of a master bedroom pillow than a guest room pillow. It is made to feel like an opulent hotel pillow and is priced accordingly. Those who have the means to splurge this could be a great pillow to splurge on.

Overall

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

From my experience, stomach and back sleepers will be content with either pillow. Both offer that cozy “sinking in” feeling that is reminiscent of down and feathers, while only one offers the actual down. 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).
