But, what if you are one of those people who think Memory Foam Pillows are a little too stiff, but you still want the benefits of less pressure on the head and good support for the neck? Well, one of the best alternatives is a buckwheat hull pillow. Buckwheat pillows are filled with a whole lot of hard, little buckwheat husks. They are a little like flattened beans and they move and slide around as you adjust the pillow to your liking. What they do provide is a variable and adjustable shape that allows your head and neck to be most comfortable. Technically, a buckwheat pillow would benefit all three sleeping styles because of the adjustability factor. There is also a zippered opening that allows one to add or remove fill based on your size or personal comfort.
Each type of pillow type has its advantages, choosing one is an individual decision based on your own personal preferences.
I once knew a gentleman who slept on his back, without a pillow, on a long narrow wooden bench. (Did I also say it was hard!) But most of us are using pillows and buying them in fabrics and colors that match our bedding and bedroom decor.
Other vital traits of a good bed pillow that you should keep in mind are the firmness, size and the maintenance level the pillow requires. When it comes to size the standard pillow is for single or twin bed, the medium size is for queen size bed while the large ones are designed for king size beds. As for pillow maintenance, cotton and synthetic fiber pillows are the easiest to clean and are the most durable.
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.
Pillows are a constant source of frustration for many. In addition to aggravating the neck, lots of pillows can also affect the shoulder. The shoulder should not be placed at 90 degrees to the mattress, because it can cause spasms in the trapezius muscles.Trapezius muscles perform a variety of actions, including acting as a platform to raise the skull, which is very important to relax during sleep completely. If the shoulder is positioned slightly forward on the mattress in front of the bed, assuming that the mattress can hold this position, the risk of putting pressure on the trapezius and forcing the scapula (shoulder blade) to the column is reduced. By contrast, when in the 90 degree position, sleepers can wake up with neck pain and upper arm and altered sensitivity to little and ring fingers.
