Discover the Right Bed Pillows for More Restful Sleep

You might be wondering if changing up your pillows will help you sleep better. You would be surprised to learn that a different pillow can help you be more comfortable and fall asleep faster. The information that follows will help you choose new pillows based on type and use.

Are there different bed pillows for the different ways people sleep?

More likely than not, when you think of pillows, you think of the ones on your bed. These may seem very similar, but they are not. There are pillows designed for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers, as well as neck pillows and pillows with different fills (stuffing). If you shop for down pillows, you'll find they have a distinctive sort of stuffing and construction. If your pillows have fiberfill, then they will be available as soft, medium, or firm.

What makes good feather pillows?

A feather or down pillow is typically filled with duck or goose feathers. Feather pillows contain feathers from the birds' wings or backs, with the quills included, while premium down pillows use only the down taken from the breast of a goose, which has no quills. You can tell the quality of a feather or down pillow by the price. The higher the price, the higher the quality of the down or feather filling.

Which pillows are the most durable?

Memory foam pillows are most likely to last a long time because this substance continuously rebounds and recovers its shape. Memory foam pillows cannot fall apart. However, a memory foam pillow is denser than most other pillows.

How do couch pillows and back pillows differ from bed pillows?

Couch pillows and back pillows have more varied shapes. They may be round, square, rectangular, or just about any other shape. Most back pillows may are rolls, long rectangles, and/or made of memory foam to conform to your back's curves. Both types are extremely dense. They will still be holding together years after you first purchase them because of their tight stitching and firm stuffing or foam.

Does it matter if you use pillowcases?

Pillowcases exist for several reasons, and they are plentiful and easy to buy. The most luxurious of all pillowcases are the ones with extremely high thread count, made of Egyptian cotton, and come in a variety of colors to match your bedroom decor. The main functions of pillowcases are to help absorb excess body oils and sweat so your pillows stay cleaner longer.
