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.
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.
Geese feathers is another type of popular filling that is used for feather pillows, a goose feather pillow can be soft but it is also a bit firmer than a down feather pillow. Both of these types of pillows if you take proper care of them will last for several years. You should never machine wash a feather pillow because the feathers will stick together and that will cause your pillow to become very uncomfortable to sleep on.
While choosing a pillow the material that it's filled with is not the only thing you need to consider. Its size is very important too. Pillows may have different sizes and most of people choose a pillow according to the size of their mattress. People having the great-size bed usually choose a large pillow. The same concerns small beds and small pillows.
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.
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.
