For a luxurious and full looking pillow, choose inserts that are 1 to 4 inches larger than the cover that you'll be using (see below for specific recommendations).  Usually the larger the cover, the greater the difference between the cover and insert that's required for a full look. Our most popular pillow cover size is 20x20 and we recommend using 22x22 inserts for those. If you're not sure what size your cover is, use our measuring guide. 

We recommend using feather-down blend inserts whenever possible. If allergies are a concern, alternative down blend inserts are the next best option.
