After a long tiring day, few things match the simple joy of soft sheets, stretching out on a comfortable mattress, and lying your head on a pillow that mildly support your head and neck in a properly- aligned position as you drift off into wonderful sleep. Selecting that pillow, however, can be an exercise in frustration. There are different types of bed pillows; you might feel like you want to choose the right pillow.
Do you sleep on your back or side? Do you have allergies? Do you want a specialty pillow? And what about the pillow’s fill? You shouldn’t require a study guide just to go home with the right pillow, but knowing the numerous options makes it easier to pick a pillow that gives greater comfort, support and providing a good night’s sleep.
What’s your sleep position?
While everyone changes the position throughout the night, some people choose a certain sleeping position. This is important when picking the right bed pillow.
Side sleeper: If you are a side sleeper, look for a pillow with strong support, a medium loft and support that keeps your neck aligned with your spine.
Back sleeper: if you generally find yourself sleeping on your back, you’ll want a pillow that grips your head high enough to avoid back tilt, yet isn’t enough to straining your neck. Medium support is best.
Stomach sleeper: Because sleeping on your stomach needs lying with your head turned sharply to the side, you need a pillow that is equally flat and soft to avoid hurting your neck by lifting your head out of position with your spine.
Nevertheless, of how much you love your pillow, it’s time to replace it when it loses its shape or support, the fill breaks down into swellings, or the pillow no longer springs back into position when doubled in half.
