Just as there is a wide range of pillow types (there are wedge pillows, neck support pillows and body pillows to help sleepers with physical problems, and feather pillows, water-based pillows, decorative floor pillows and kids novelty pillows) so we have an endlessly delightful range of pillow fabrics. My wife has some of these in a couple of our bedrooms and they look really good.
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.
If your choice turns out to be a cotton filled pillow you should replace it when needed rather than washing it. Because over time cotton pillows will become very dense because of the body weight that is constantly put on them. And remember cotton pillows are very affordable so replacing them when needed is worth the cost to avoid health problems that can be directly related to breathing in mold.
Are you a person that sleeps on their stomach or back? If you sleep on your side like many people then a flat pillow will probably be all you need. If you are someone that prefers to sleep face down then you will probably have to spend a little more time looking to find one that is right for you. Try the pillow out before you buy it and see how you feel when resting on it. This will go a long way to helping you find a size and shape that is just right for your sleeping style.
Choosing the right bed pillow can improve your sleep and well-being. For this reason, there are pillow consultants that specialize in the design and production of numerous forms of pillows for different body types and sleeping needs. Before one searches for the right bed pillow for the night, they should consider a number of factors such as their sleeping style.
Based on body measurements and personal preference, the pillow should maintain a height of 4 to 6 inches, properly supporting the head and neck (and shoulders when lying on your back).
