As with everything bedding related your budget and how much you can spend will determine a lot about the kind of pillow you end up buying. Also keep in mind that since you will be using your pillow a lot it is recommended to buy the best that you can afford. This may mean that you only get two quality pillows instead of four cheap ones. It is much better to have just the right amount of pillows that are great to sleep on than having a bed full of cheap, rock hard pillows that feel like stones when you rest on them.
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.
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.
A Comfortable feather pillow to sleep on each night is one way you can be assured you will be getting a good night's sleep.
Well, each pillow type has its advantages and disadvantages; that is why you should consider your own requirements and needs while choosing.
Cotton pillows are rather cheap and changing them will avoid many health problems resulting from inhaling mold.
