In general, if you like to sleep on your stomach, a softer and flatter pillow is probably your best bet. A softer pillow helps relieve tension on your neck that a firmer pillow might increase. Sleeping on your stomach is naturally accompanied by a twisting of the neck. A firm pillow might also add strain on the neck by forcing your head up. So, for a stomach sleeper to have the most comfortable sleep, choose a soft, flat pillow, or a pillow that allows you to add or remove the fill to personalize your comfort. Good choices for the stomach sleeper might include a Dacron Polyester filled pillow, or the Eco-Basics Pillow.
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.
In some cases, pillows are purchased for the sole purpose of decorating other furniture in an office or home. There are numerous ornamental pillows that can be used to complement the rest of the furniture and room. These decorative ones can be custom designed as well to perfectly suit your taste.
Pillow fillings have come a long way from the straw or feather fills of earlier centuries. And again, they now come in a bewildering range of materials. Solid cotton filling is used in the Middle East and South Asia, and I have spent a good number of nights on them during my travels there. Here, many sleepers fill their pillows with buckwheat and modern plastics have given us fluffy fibre filling that can be fine tuned to firm or soft consistencies and stuffed into our pillows. These cheap, synthetic fillings have brought down the price of pillows. My wife and I, for instance, recently bought a double mattress and the salesman threw in pillows as a complimentary extra.
