What bed isn't complete with the perfect pillow? Matching your black bed with a nice soft, black pillow does a lot to make sure you get a great night's sleep. We spend about a third of our lives sleeping, so it goes without saying that a comfortable pillow is a necessity. However, picking pillows can be a little confusing due to the large range of brands, shapes and sizes pillows come in today. What makes for a good pillow? If you prefer to sleep on your side and not your back does it make a difference? Are soft pillows better for you than hard pillows? These are just a few of the many questions pillow buyers face. Read on to learn more about how to pick the perfect pillow for you to get a great night's rest.
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.
Pillow fillings have come a long way from the straw or feather fills of earlier centuries. And again, they now come in a bewildering range of materials. Solid cotton filling is used in the Middle East and South Asia, and I have spent a good number of nights on them during my travels there. Here, many sleepers fill their pillows with buckwheat and modern plastics have given us fluffy fibre filling that can be fine tuned to firm or soft consistencies and stuffed into our pillows. These cheap, synthetic fillings have brought down the price of pillows. My wife and I, for instance, recently bought a double mattress and the salesman threw in pillows as a complimentary extra.
ou feel lazy in the office and unable to concentrate on your work because of the heaviness in the head. This is because you are not having a sound sleep at night. One of the reasons for not having a nice sleep can be uncomfortable bed pillow. So shop for the one that fits your size & gives comfort to your neck & head while sleeping.
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.
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.
