Another problem pillow buyers face is that of buying a foam pillow or a feather one. The main difference between these two is that foam pillows hold their shape better but they are not as comfortable as feather ones. Feather pillows are much softer and fluffy but you may find that every morning your pillow has lost its shape during the night and has transformed into something completely different that needs a shake to get it back to how it was. You will also need to be careful when buying feather pillows and ensure that any pillow you buy is hypo-allergenic to make sure it doesn't set off any allergies you may have.
Everyone has a special way that we feel is the most comfortable way to sleep. Because of this, choosing a Bed Pillow is a unique experience for each of us. The first thing to do before selecting a pillow to sleep on, is to determine your favorite sleeping position. Some of us like to sleep on our sides, some on our backs and some on our stomachs. There are different pillows suited for all of these positions.
To help pillow conform to various sleep positions, it is best that the pillow can be adjusted to fit the unique shape and curves and the sleeping position of the user. A pillow should mold to an individual and to alleviate pressure points.
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.
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.
