Pillow experts caution that when choosing the right bed pillow, customers should be on the look out for pillows that contain fibers that can trigger allergies. Bed pillows that contain feathers or wool for example, may cause allergic reactions in some people who are already sensitive to these fibers. For this reason, it is very important to read the label that describes the types of fibers that a pillow contains before you buy it.
While choosing a pillow the material that it's filled with is not the only thing you need to consider. Its size is very important too. Pillows may have different sizes and most of people choose a pillow according to the size of their mattress. People having the great-size bed usually choose a large pillow. The same concerns small beds and small pillows.
By now, you would have a fair idea that special types of pillows are available for health purposes however pillows can be purchased for various other situations as well. There are pregnancy pillows which can be used to support and aid a pregnant mother. If you travel often, you may find an airplane neck pillow particularly useful as they wrap around your neck and allow you to have a comfortable sleep irrespective of the motion of the vehicle. Travel pillows can also be used if you work long or late shifts for a quick power nap at work.
Then there is the huge range of specialized pillows offered to people with posture, health and snoring problems. There are neck support pillows, lumbar or knee pillows, back support pillows and buckwheat pillows; all of them useful for particularly physical ailments. Snoring? There are pillows that help some of us get over this embarrassing habit.
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.
A cotton center pillow is another option you might also consider, this kind of pillow tends to be flatter than the other kind of pillows they also don't maintain their shape and therefore don't mold around your head and neck like some of the other types. Although many people really like their cotton pillows because they feel that they let the body rest as it naturally wants to and they will not trade their cotton pillow for anything and also use them faithfully without suffering any neck pain.
