One very popular type of feather pillow is a down feather pillow, down pillows are filled with feathers from a goose. Goose down is the material that is located under the feathers of a goose and it is very soft. It is used in pillows because it provides a very luxurious feel as well as being very soft. This type of pillow is the most costly and for many people it doesn't provide enough neck support. But when you find that perfect feather pillow you will be guaranteeing yourself a restful night's sleep.
For side sleepers, a thicker, firmer pillow would be the most likely candidate to enhance your evening slumber. Pillows such a contoured memory foam pillow or a latex foam pillow are designed to provide the support between the bed and the head allowing a side sleeper to keep their neck and spine aligned. A softer pillow, for a side sleeper, would cause the head to slump and put strain on the neck.
The human neck curves slightly forward (to sustain the weight of the head upright), and it is very important to maintain this curve when in a resting position. If the height of the pillow is too high to sleep on their side or back, the neck is bent abnormally forward or to the side, causing muscle strain in the back of the neck and shoulders. This type of position may also cause narrowing of the air pipe, resulting in obstructed breathing, and sometimes snoring, which can hinder sleep. On the contrary, if the height of the pillow is too low, the neck muscles can also be enforced.
Another problem pillow buyers face is that of buying a foam pillow or a feather one. The main difference between these two is that foam pillows hold their shape better but they are not as comfortable as feather ones. Feather pillows are much softer and fluffy but you may find that every morning your pillow has lost its shape during the night and has transformed into something completely different that needs a shake to get it back to how it was. You will also need to be careful when buying feather pillows and ensure that any pillow you buy is hypo-allergenic to make sure it doesn't set off any allergies you may have.
A dream position dictate how a traditional pillow top mattress can be used to provide adequate support.
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.
