Each type of pillow type has its advantages, choosing one is an individual decision based on your own personal preferences.
Many people may not realize that there are so many choices when it comes to deciding what to lay their head on at night. Each different type of pillow offers unique benefits. Selecting the right pillow for you may help you sleep better at night and allow you to wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Knowing the various pillow options that exist along with your preferred sleeping style, will help you make and informed choice to get the best sleep each night.
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.
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.
Size is another area where the humble pillow is really far from uniform. There are body pillows and decorative floor pillows that are much bigger than the standard pillow at the end of your bed. Then, in the Middle East, in Egypt, long tube-like pillows are the norm. They are hard and narrow, reaching right across the width of the bed, and while they look inviting they are rock hard. Local people like them. You might be inclinded to have another opinion.
The thickness of the pillow is also important. It mostly depends on people's sleeping habits. A person sleeping on the side needs a thicker pillow while this one sleeping on one's back will like thinner pillows.
