Sofa, not so good

I need new sofa cushions. Help!

I bought a sofa less than two years ago, and the seat cushions have completely packed in - no matter how much I plump them, it's like sitting on rocky pancakes. Obviously, I was expecting a bit more out of them, but it's looking like I'll need to get replacements.
Hollow fibre cushions seem to be the most popular option, but this is what my existing cushions are made out of, which makes me somewhat wary. Foam cushions seem to be more durable, but seem to be a fair bit less comfortable. Then there's feather cushions, which are the premium option, I guess?
So how do I buy sofa cushions that are comfortable and durable? Just sitting on them doesn't really give you an impression of how they're going to feel in three years' time. Are some hollow fibre cushions made of sterner stuff than others, and if so, is there anything I should be looking out for? Or is it worth paying the premium for feather? And can anyone recommend any good UK-based manufacturers? Thanks!
