Should I size up on pillow insert?
We generally recommend using inserts that are 2″ larger all around than your finished pillow size. For example if you have an 18×18 pillow cover, you’ll want to use a 20×20 insert. This will ensure that your pillow looks plump and luxurious. If the insert is too small, the pillow cover will look saggy.
What size throw pillow insert should I get?
