Waking up in the morning with neck or back ache can often mean that the pillow you are sleeping on is too hard or too soft.
A persons preference differs from one to the next. Some people like their bedding pillows to be firm and supportive while others prefer a pillow with a soft and fluffy feel to it. This decision really comes to down to the way you sleep at night.
Before you purchase your new bedding pillow, look at how you sleep. Do you sleep on your back, side or front, or a combination of all three positions? How does your neck and back feel when you wake up?
There are a wide range of different types of bedding pillow all which give varying levels of firmness. They are;
Goose Down Feather Pillows or Duck Feather Pillows - For a medium to soft feel.
Microfibre Pillows and Hollowfibre Pillows - For a medium to firm feel.
Memory Foam Pillows -For a supportive firm feel.
Goose Down Pillows
Goose or duck down feathered pillows are renowned for their ultimate luxurious feel. The delicate yet substantial feathered filling offers a medium to soft feel that adjusts itself to the contours of the neck and spine.
Warm pockets of air are trapped by the soft down which gives the pillow that lightweight airy feel you can really sink into while still offering support exactly where it is needed.
Micro Fibre Pillows
Allergies can be a nightmare when you are trying to sleep. If you or any member of your family suffer from any allergy or asthma, natural filling like down and feather is definitely a no go.
Micro Fibre pillows are made from a highly compressed synthetic fibre that has an air pocket running through the length of it. The material is as warm and comfortable as goose down pillows as the air is pumped into each fibre during the spinning process, however microfibre pillows are highly breathable and have a more economical price tag.
Hollow Fibre Pillows
Hollow Fibre is a hypoallergenic material which is very light and fluffy. The pillow gives a light to medium firm feel to the pillow and is perfect for asthma sufferers and children as it is completely man made and non-allergenic. The bonus about hollow fibre pillows is that they are generally better at maintaining their shape and loft than natural fill pillows are.
Memory Foam Pillows
Memory Foam Pillows were the original answer for people who suffer from neck and back problems. The bedding pillows give a firm and supportive feel as well as being very comfortable to sleep on.
Memory Foam was used by astronauts in space and is an amazing material that spreads out evenly whenever pressure is applied to it. The material is heat sensitive and will shape itself to your body no matter which way you lie. If you move around a lot in your sleep the foam will gradually return to its original shape and conform to your new sleeping position.
Memory foam pillows are said to help people who suffer with insomnia, sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.
