The size of your pillow will depend on what kind of sleeper you are. Some people just sleep, while others prefer to hug or cuddle with their pillow. Which one are you? If you are a person who likes to cuddle your pillow then you might want to get a pillow that is one size bigger than your bed. If you sleep on a Queen, then get a King sized pillow. For those who are not fond of cuddling pillows then the best advice is just to buy a pillow that matches the size of your bed.
A pillows thickness is also something to keep in mind, you should choose thickness based on the position you sleep in. If you sleep mostly on your side you will want a thicker pillow to get the neck support you need. If you sleep on your back than a thin pillow would be your best choice, a thin pillow will give you enough neck support but won't cause neck strain. A feather pillow can also be made flat so would also be a good choice if you sleep on your back.

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.
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).
If your choice turns out to be a cotton filled pillow you should replace it when needed rather than washing it. Because over time cotton pillows will become very dense because of the body weight that is constantly put on them. And remember cotton pillows are very affordable so replacing them when needed is worth the cost to avoid health problems that can be directly related to breathing in mold.
