Based on body measurements and personal preference, the pillow should maintain a height of 4 to 6 inches, properly supporting the head and neck (and shoulders when lying on your back).
The material you choose for your new pillow isn't the only decision you will have to make; size is something you will also have to consider. Feather pillows come in many sizes and many people make the decision of size based on the size of their bed. If you have a queen size you would also choose queen sized pillows, just like for your children who probably have a twin size bed you would choose a small standard size pillow. A good feather pillow of any size will assure you a good night sleep, and help you to wake up feeling rested.
Choosing the right pillow is very important in achieving restful sleep. A good pillow will support the head and neck without applying excessive pressure, as it conforms to the exact shape of the bed, thus spreading the weight evenly and uniformly along the vertebrae.
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.
A cotton center pillow is another option you might also consider, this kind of pillow tends to be flatter than the other kind of pillows they also don't maintain their shape and therefore don't mold around your head and neck like some of the other types. Although many people really like their cotton pillows because they feel that they let the body rest as it naturally wants to and they will not trade their cotton pillow for anything and also use them faithfully without suffering any neck pain.
Over time, cotton filled pillows are beginning to lose their firmness and not to support the neck properly. The pillows that we recommend, does not have a problem and therefore, after a very long time.
