Choose the best pillow for you

Date Posted:9 November 2018

There are no doubts that much need to consider when purchasing a new pillow. For example, height, size, fill, fabric and degrees of firmness.

  1. Test your pillow

Try to fold your pillow in half then release it. A ‘health pillow’ will release and bounce back into original shape. Otherwise, it’s time to replace your pillow.

  1. Consider your preference

Your sleeping style will determine the height of the pillow that best suits you. Notably, height is quite significant as it supports your head and neck during your sleep. In order to maintain your neck in a neutral position in alignment with your spine, side sleepers should choose a medium/high pillow, back sleepers a low/medium and tummy sleepers a low loft pillow.

  1. How about mattress?

The firmness of a mattress has much to do with pillow performance. If you sleep on a firm mattress, your body will lie higher and not sink down; therefore your pillow will need more height or thickness. If you sleep on a soft mattress, you will sleep lower by sinking into the bed, requiring a pillow with less height. If your mattress is between firm and soft, a medium thickness pillow will suit you better.

  1. Comfortable is important

Not only height is a consideration in choosing a pillow, but also comfort plays an important role. If a pillow feels comfortable, you are more likely to relax, get a good night’s sleep and feel well rested in the morning.

  1. Identify your sleep position

According to a recent research, 41% of people prefer the Foetus position, followed by the Log, the Yearner, the Soldier, the Freefaller and the Starfish.

Microfiber is a modern synthetic fabric. The ultra-thin fibres create pillows that are super soft, lightweight, long lasting and easy care. The filling is air blown into the pillow casing, promoting good loft and softness. Microfiber is designed to emulate the characteristics and fell of down buth with the added benefit of easy maintenance. Pillows made from microfiber quickly regain their shape making them supportive and long wearing. Often preferred by allergy suffers and children as they are dust mite resistant and machine washable.
