My pillow covers are 18X18 - do I buy 18X18 pillow forms or 20X20? Are pillow inserts made to be the exact size or do you order up? Thanks
Are you talking about decorative pillows? I just bought some covers and now I'm having a brain fog...I think the size I bought was the "European" which are a perfect square, I think 20x20. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
But when I did a search all I found was 20 x 20 for the square pillows.
When my covers came in my 20 x 20 pillow seemed too small for them.
Yes, they are decorative pillows in a perfect square. I have found numerous options of inserts and I am trying to avoid buying the wrong thing. Sounds like, I need 20X20 pillow inserts for 18X18 covers. Thanks
The pillow inserts should always be larger than the covers. So, for an 18x18 cover, a 20x20 insert should fill it perfectly, unless you deliberately want a soft and floppy pillow.
Helene is right and I learned that the hard way after looking at throw pillows I didnt like *for some reason* for two years.
I just ordered all new faux down inserts for my couch and I LOVE them. Ordered them 2 inches bigger but could have gone another 2 I think- maybe. Anyway, they are great and were only like 7 dollars each for 24 by 24 inch. Found them online.
Depends what type of filling you want. If the pillowcase is 18 x 18 and you want foam, get 18 x 18 otherwise it will feel a bit too firm. If you plan to use duck feather pillows, get the 20 x 20. Down is really soft, so you could go bigger still.
oakley, euro size is 25 by 25, used for bed shams usually, although I use mine on a sofa.
Thanks Mitch! I prefer that size for my sofa in case I ever need to take a catnap. :)
Blubird, I sure wish I knew to buy a couple of inches smaller in the cover before I bought a pair.
Seriously, does anyone know of an online store that sells a lot of textiles, like pillow covers with many colors and patterns to choose from?
I'm looking for checks and plaids and they're really hard to find, or not the color I want.
I found this while searching for an answer regarding pillows. I appreciate everyone's input! This was the last website I expected to find this kind of information!! :0)
