Non-Crafty Sue Has Pillow Insert Question

Posted by chisue (My Page) on

I found a King bed coverlet and shams at Macy's online. They had no king shams the right color, so I ordered three European Shams (26 X 26).

1) Will three be adequate for the head of the bed? Should I order one more?

2) What should I look for as inserts? Do I need 26 X 26 -- or would 28 X 28 fill the shams out more? These are 'decorative' -- not for sleeping. Is polyfoam OK? I see some for about $10 each at Sears/Kmart online. (Limited shopping here on Maui. This is for our condo, which we rent when we aren't using it.)

These are Martha Stewart "Petal Drift" pattern in 'caramel' color. $142.04 for coverlet and three shams. (Includes tax, free shipping and a 20% off coupon.) I was able to see a queen size at Macy's in Kahului so I know I like the product. I can return it to the store if it doesn't work.

1 king size sham Measures 20" W x 36" L. Three of the other should be fine. A kind size bed is like 2 twin beds.

Three 26" Euro shams will go across the head of a 76" wide king mattress perfectly. Generally, it is recommended that you buy an insert 2" larger than the size of your sham. I prefer down or feather (cheaper than down) inserts to polyester fiberfill because I like a softer, slouchier look. The fiberfill inserts will give you a stiffer, fuller look. It's really a matter of your preference.

Thanks! I'll look for three 28" squares.

Sure hope these turn out to be the same color! The shams only say "Petal Drift" where the coverlet says "Caramel". They are coming separately -- promised by the 20th, which will give me a week to return them on Maui if they aren't right.
