Pillow sizing off?

Ah! I didn't realize... okay, when I was testing all of those cushions, the 2 size smalls were NOT the same. One had a defect.

Look very closely at the stems. Are they the same length?

On the defective cushion, one stem was slightly shorter and the upper part was tilted at a slight angle. I could not get that cushion to seal, no matter what I did. I included this information in my review of the P10.

Kiwii, I had thought of that and they do look the same to me, but I imagine that a very slight difference could equate to quite a bit of difficulty getting a seal.

It wasn't that slight. If you had one with this defect, you'd see it right away -- it would be obvious (if you thought to look for it).

I didn't try washing it with warm water though. I still have it and will give that a try too.

My own experience with these pillows is that they vary noticeably batch to batch. Some are a little smaller or larger but the main difference is that some are super soft and don't hold up for more than a few nights. They begin to collapse. Others seem to last for weeks. My bet is that there is more than one manufacturer even though they are all branded and packaged the same way and there are inconsistencies between them.

Super frustrating.
