The human neck curves slightly forward (to sustain the weight of the head upright), and it is very important to maintain this curve when in a resting position. If the height of the pillow is too high to sleep on their side or back, the neck is bent abnormally forward or to the side, causing muscle strain in the back of the neck and shoulders. This type of position may also cause narrowing of the air pipe, resulting in obstructed breathing, and sometimes snoring, which can hinder sleep. On the contrary, if the height of the pillow is too low, the neck muscles can also be enforced.
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.
I once knew a gentleman who slept on his back, without a pillow, on a long narrow wooden bench. (Did I also say it was hard!) But most of us are using pillows and buying them in fabrics and colors that match our bedding and bedroom decor.
Well, each pillow type has its advantages and disadvantages; that is why you should consider your own requirements and needs while choosing.
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.
Pillow experts caution that when choosing the right bed pillow, customers should be on the look out for pillows that contain fibers that can trigger allergies. Bed pillows that contain feathers or wool for example, may cause allergic reactions in some people who are already sensitive to these fibers. For this reason, it is very important to read the label that describes the types of fibers that a pillow contains before you buy it.
