Pillow Buying Guide

Pillows for Side Sleepers

Side sleepers are best suited with a memory foam or orthopaedic pillow as side sleepers often suffer from neck ache this is because people can cause damage to their spine’s natural alignment, as your head is often either too high or too low. Therefore, a memory foam pillow, or an orthopaedic pillow is best for side sleepers, as both pillows are designed to cushion vulnerable pressure points in the head and neck. A side sleeper also needs a firm or medium firm pillow; too thick a pillow can interfere with spine alignment, but too thin a pillow will not provide enough cushioning.

Pillows for Back Sleepers

As a back sleeper, the ideal pillows that are recommended are a feather and down mixture. Pillows that have a mixture of feathers and down offer more medium support, it is a mixture of delicate down feathers and larger feathers. A synthetic hollowfibre is also available in a medium support and will maintain fuller for longer. A medium support pillow will provide support to your head without pushing it too far forward. The perfect pillow for a back sleeper promotes spinal alignment, rather than arching he neck too far upwards and your head sinking in too deeply.

Pillows for Front Sleepers

When sleeping on your front, we recommend that you use a duck or down filling, or a softer polyester filling. A down pillow is a cosy lighter choice and is made from soft feathers, with lighter support. Polyester pillows are available in all firmness levels; they are easier to care for and can last longer. Light pillows are good for front sleepers as it allows your head and neck to sink into the mattress, which means using a pillow with less height is ideal as it will prevent you from neck pain.

Pillows for Children

While the youngest of children don’t need a pillow, the support of a good pillow is important for kids as they get older, the best pillows for kids offer support to the growing head and neck while having the durability to last featuring high-quality hypoallergenic materials.
