Pillow Buying Guide

CARING FOR YOUR PILLOW

Pillows should be suitable for use for approx two to fours years. However if you notice they become discloured or you wake up with an aching neck we would recommend changing them sooner.

You can help to extend the life of a pillow by plumping it daily. Pillow protectors are also a fantastic way to prolong the life of your pillow and are much easier to wash  - click here to see our zippered pillow protectors.

 

WHICH PILLOW TYPE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

The question is how do you sleep for the majority of the night?

IF YOU SLEEP ON YOUR SIDE -

The best pillow for you if you sleep on your side is a FIRM PILLOW which will support your head and neck, helping to keep your spine straight

IF YOU SLEEP ON YOUR BACK-

The best pillow in this case would be a MEDIUM PILLOW. This will provide enough support for your head without pushing it forward and help keep the natural curve of your neck and spine.

IF YOU SLEEP ON YOUR FRONT-

The best pillow for you would be a SOFT PILLOW. This is because as you sleep closer to the mattress you need a pillow that gently supports your head and neck, keeping you spine in its natural position.

 

 

WHICH PILLOW FILLING IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

SYNTHETIC/HOLLOW FIBRE

If you suffer from allergies then these pillows have the right filling for you. These pillows can be used to create any level of firmness you require for your sleeping requirements.

NATURAL - FEATHER AND DOWN

Natural pillows contain either feathers or down or a blend of the two, from either ducks or geese sourced from colder parts of the world.

FEATHER - is a flat and curved with a quill shaft running through the centre. Feathers are firmer and heavier than down and offer more support in a pillow. 

DOWN - is the softer, fluffier feathers collected from the breast of the bird. Down filled pillows offer supreme softness in a pillow.
