Cue the fluffs and karate chops because today we’re sharing our guide to the best throw pillow covers and inserts! We’ll talk you through the easiest way to get your pillow inserts into your covers for the fullest and most-chic look. Don’t worry – we won’t leave you when hanging on where to purchase our favorite inserts or stunning throw pillow covers either. Scroll down to shop our favorites and create the perfect throw pillow!

Design tip:

Always order one size up on your inserts so you have a nice and full pillow! For example, if you have an 18×18 cover, you’ll want to order a 20×20 insert. 

The easiest way to get your pillow inserts into your covers:

Step 1: The key is to fold your insert pillow in half

Step 2: Unfold it inside the cover and work it into the corners

Step 3: Pinch the corners and zip it closed

Step 4: Give it a good fluff…

Step 5: And a good chop!
