Default serious question! - pillow sizes

Are pillows (for sleeping!) the same size in OZ as the UK, or are they the European size?

I'm love the Euro size, to the extent that I'm thinking of buying a couple of extra's and putting them in the container, and all of our bedding is the European size.

I wasn't aware that there was a specific "Euro size."

UK/Australian pillow sizes are identical AFAIK. I certainly haven't noticed a difference.

By Euro size do you mean the large square cushions? If so then you can get them here no problem.

They have the same size ones and some even better ones. They come in all shapes and sizes!

Hiya i found when i was looking for bed pillows that you can get normal bog standard pillows then they do queen size pillows i might sound daft here but i am assuming they are for a queen size bed don't quote me on that lol i had a problem getting ones that weren't filled with feathers o/h is allergic big time and would have killed me in the end i bought some perma fresh ones for woollies as they hypo allergenic.
good luck with your search

2 months ago, i'd have laughed out loud at this one...but then the missis goes and packs 2 pillows stashed away in the unaccompianied luggage...and how nice it is to have your own pillows...Remember if you ship stuff then they charge by volume, if you send stuff by accompianied air luggage then they charge by weight. And what does a pillow weigh...far less than a good night's sleep...

however some people in both countries may need bigger ones due to the size of thier heads (bigheads)

yeah - seems like a silly question until you realise it's the sort of thing you did ask yourself a little later down the line...

We bought good pillows when we got here and they had Euro sized ones. In fact the lady in the shop automatically thought we were looking for Euro sized pillows (I've only ever slept on them in hotels before, but they are nice...)

We went to a Capt'n Snooze I believe.
