Some of the types of pillows available in the market generally contain feathers, cotton fiber, synthetic fiber and foam. Cotton and synthetic fiber pillows are the fluffiest and best insulators that do not easily deform when slept on for extended periods of time. However, these types of pillows are some of the more expensive types in the market. Feather pillows meanwhile are cheaper and they give good head support despite not being the most resilient type of pillow. On the other hand, memory form and latex pillows are the ones that most sleep experts recommend for individuals with back and neck problems because they automatically adjust to the shape of ones body.
Everyone has a special way that we feel is the most comfortable way to sleep. Because of this, choosing a Bed Pillow is a unique experience for each of us. The first thing to do before selecting a pillow to sleep on, is to determine your favorite sleeping position. Some of us like to sleep on our sides, some on our backs and some on our stomachs. There are different pillows suited for all of these positions.
The most common use of pillows that can be related to by most people is comfort. Without a doubt, the invention of pillows has greatly aided comfort. A pillow alone can be responsible for a sound sleep. When it comes to comfort, apart for sleeping, pillows may also be used to lean on when seated or lying down. Airplane neck pillow can also be instrumental when traveling. Sitting in the same spot for several hours can leave you drained out and cranky and having a pillow for travel can certainly alleviate some of the effects of a long journey.
Back Sleepers are unique in that a firm, but soft pillow feels the best. Back sleepers need cervical neck support, but also need less pressure on the back of the head. Contour shaped pillows are perfect for this. They are designed with a valley for the head and an arch for the neck. The nice thing about that shape is that if you end up rolling to your side, you'd still receive the same benefit as a side sleeper. That is, support for the neck with less pressure on the head. Contour pillows are usually made from a pressure relieving memory foam.
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).
Choosing the right bed pillow also has much to do with your sleeping style. Individuals who sleep mostly on their side or back should look for a pillow that can naturally support their head, shoulders and spine in the right position. The right bed pillow should not tilt your body in unnatural positions, as this will cause neck and back pain. Individuals who sleep on their stomach should choose a more flat pillow to alleviate strain on the neck and back.
