What's the meaning of "give" in this context? (...at least they give a little)
Emily's husband is hospitalized and she tried to find him some nice down pillows, (since they're very rich and she thinks the hospital pillows are cheap and unacceptable) but couldn't in the end and says as below to him.
Emily: I've finally found you some decent pillows.
They're not down, but at least they *give* a little.
What's the meaning of "give" here? I of course looked it up in the dictionary for definitions I might not be familiar with, but I couldn't find one and still don't understand what the sentence means here.
