If you have a king size bed, do you also have king size pillows?

We bought a king size bed and still have the pillows from our old double. I'm thinking about buying new pillows and assumed that I would get bigger pillows to fit the bed but I noticed that king sized bedding comes with standard double bed size pillow cases. I looked around for pillows that fit a king size bed and have on,y really seen them in White Company.

Do most people just keep standard pillows? If not, where do you buy pillow cases?

I didnt know there was such a thing shock.

Unless you want to search for separate pillowcases all the time would it be simpler to.stick to standard size?

We have a superking bed, all our bedding comes with regular size pillowcases

Pillows and pillowcases are all the same size (roughly) they don't come in single,double and king size.

If you've found some big ones you've just found some big ones.

We have 1 long bolster pillow that goes across the top of the bed and then 1 'normal' pillow each.

I had no idea you could get larger pillows

We have four normal pillows and two big, square ones for reading in bed.

We have normal size pillows. When they are puffed up, there isn't much space between or around them.

I have a giant overstuffed pillow (80x80cm).

I'm not clear why you would need bigger pillows, heads tend to be fairly standard in size...

I have just seen some king sized pillows in tkmaxx - hadn't seen them before and they were weird!

I nearly bought them but then worried about getting pillow cases. They came with one on but DH is a sweaty bugger and would make it yellow in a fortnight!
We have 4 normal sized pillows - Oxford pillow cases (the type with the unfrilly frill round) make them fit the bed better
