What to consider when buying pillows?

When it comes to buying pillows how do you know which ones are the best to buy in terms of quality and value? There’s nothing more frustrating than when you’re a first time buyer and you haven’t a clue what to look for. Well here’s a few pointers on what to look for…

The height of the pillow: Have you ever noticed that the human neck curves slightly forward? This is a normal curvature of the spine, and it’s exactly how it should look when it’s in a resting position. This is why it’s important to have a pillow that molds nicely to compensate the neck curvature, and give you support whilst you sleep. If the pillow is too thin or too thick you can strain your neck, leading to aches and pains the following day. The height of the pillow should be as such that it supports both the head and the neck.

Comfort: Pillows come with a range of different stuffing such as polyester, microfibres, duck and goose feathers etc. so each individual can choose something tailored to their needs.

Adaptable: Depending on what the pillow is stuffed with it should adapt your body as your lay your head into it.

Your preferred sleeping position: If you enjoy sleeping on your back then the pillow needs to support the curvature of the cervical spine. If you prefer sleeping on your side then the pillow should support your head and your neck, and if you can only sleep on your front then the pillow needs be flat.
