How To Choose The Perfect Pillow

Posted on: 27 October 2018

Finding the perfect pillow can be harder than finding the perfect pair of shoes. A pillow that you love may be utterly uncomfortable for a friend of yours. So you can't really rely on online reviews or your friends' opinions to find the perfect pillow. Here are a few tips you can employ successfully. 

Choose a filling that supports your needs

Pillows come stuffed with a wide array of fillings. Spend time thinking about which one may be best for you. For instance, down pillows can be very comfortable, but if you have a lot of allergies, they might leave you itchy. Memory foam tends to be stiffer, but it is also more expensive. 

Think about how you sleep

Do you sleep on your side, your back, or your front? Maybe you rotate positions during the night. If you sleep on your front, you may like a flatter pillow. If you sleep on your back or side, you will probably enjoy a thicker pillow. There is some variety in preference, but these standards tend to be true.

Consider your weight

If you are a tiny, lightweight person, then you may want a softer pillow since your heat will not compress the pillow a lot. On the other hand, if you are on the heavier side, you might want a firmer pillow since your head would compress a flatter, fluffier pillow. If you have lost weight over time, you may no longer like the same kind of pillow you used to prefer. 

Buy the right size

If you have a full-size bed, you might presume you should buy full-size pillows. If you have a queen-size bed, you might buy queen-size pillows. However, you need to understand that the right size pillow is not always the one that carries the same size label as your bed. If you roll from side to side a lot, you may want a queen-size pillow on a full-size bed so that you don't roll off the edge. If you want a pillow you can more easily take with you when you travel, you may want a smaller size than your bed calls for.

The best way to find a pillow you like is to try them out in person. Lay down with various pillows under your head and see what feels good. Most pillows come with a return policy, so if you do not like a pillow after a few days of having it at home, you can always return it and try another one.
