How Big Should Throw Pillow Inserts Be?

When shopping around for throw pillow covers, knowing what insert size you should purchase is very helpful.

For full, firm, and fluffy-looking pillows, your pillow insert should be larger than your pillow cover to correctly fill the corners with the pillow cover.

Here’s a list of the most common throw pillow sizes with the corresponding pillow insert size (note all measurements are inches).
