Looking to order Euro sham inserts online and I am faced with a dilemma...the sizes range from 22x22 to 26x26. Is there not a 'standard' size for Euro shams? If I buy the inserts and don't make my own covers I'm going to be stuck if I pick the wrong size!

Regardless, tho, what size do you think would LOOK the best?

The redecorating is heating up around here!

Thanks! I'll go with the 26x26. Gotta head out to the fabric store in a week or so.

There are 4 basic pillow sizes from pillow guide:

Standard Pillow, 20" x 26". Put one standard pillow on a Twin bed, two across a Full or Queen bed, and three across a King bed. Uses a standard pillowcase.

Queen Pillow, 20" x 30". Perfectly paired across the top of a Full or Queen bed. Uses a standard pillowcase.

King Pillow, 20" x 36". Extra long and ideal in pairs across the top of King beds. Uses a King pillowcase.

Euro Pillow, 26" x 26". This large, square pillow is a great backdrop for a bedding ensemble and a good cushion for sitting up in bed. Uses a Euro sham.
