A down pillow is one of the types of pillow used by many people nowadays. Down pillows are filled with goose down. The latter is the soft material located under the feathers of a goose providing a comfortable and soft feeling to people sleeping on such. Down pillows are rather expensive, however they don't provide enough support for the neck of some people.
Other vital traits of a good bed pillow that you should keep in mind are the firmness, size and the maintenance level the pillow requires. When it comes to size the standard pillow is for single or twin bed, the medium size is for queen size bed while the large ones are designed for king size beds. As for pillow maintenance, cotton and synthetic fiber pillows are the easiest to clean and are the most durable.
The human neck curves slightly forward (to sustain the weight of the head upright), and it is very important to maintain this curve when in a resting position. If the height of the pillow is too high to sleep on their side or back, the neck is bent abnormally forward or to the side, causing muscle strain in the back of the neck and shoulders. This type of position may also cause narrowing of the air pipe, resulting in obstructed breathing, and sometimes snoring, which can hinder sleep. On the contrary, if the height of the pillow is too low, the neck muscles can also be enforced.
Well, each pillow type has its advantages and disadvantages; that is why you should consider your own requirements and needs while choosing.
