Pillow inserts guide for a perfect look

Choosing the right insert or filler is key for a perfect decorative pillow. Don't worry, I'm here to help you learn everything you need to know to pick the perfect pillow insert for you. Let's get started!


What size insert should I get for my pillow cover?

We always want your pillows to look their best, so we suggest using inserts that are 2" larger all around than your pillow case.

For example, if you have an 18x18 pillow cover, we recommend using a 20x20 insert. This will make sure your pillow looks full and luxurious. If the insert is too small, the pillow cover will look saggy.

There are a few exceptions to this rule if you have extra small or large pillows. 

Please use the following chart for guidance in deciding which size pillow insert you need:

Pillow Cover Size   Suggested Pillow Insert Size 
12X18 12X18 or 13X19
14X16 14X16 or 15X17
16X16 16X16 or 17X17
14X22 16X24
18X18 20X20
20X20 22X22
22X22 24X24
24X24 26X26
26X26 28X28
