A good pillow can make all the difference in how you feel when you wake up. Using a pillow that supports your neck, head and spine will help you catch sweet Zzz and wake up refreshed. Sleep position is a crucial factor when choosing a pillow. Each position requires a different type of pillow for optimal comfort and support. Understanding what support your pillow should offer can help you get better sleep. Here’s a quick rundown:
Sleep Positions 101
The key to getting a good night’s sleep is finding a pillow that supports the way you sleep. All of us sleep differently, and that’s part of what makes our requirements so unique. While your sleep posture may change over time, it’s always best to ensure proper support in any position you choose. It is generally believed that sleepers tend to sleep in one of three sleeping positions, so let’s take a look at the three positions so you can determine what pillow is best for you.
The term side sleeper simply refers to someone who sleeps on their side. Side sleepers, especially those that like to sleep on a firm mattress, need to pay extra attention to support. Side sleepers are best suited for firmer pillows. These medium density or medium firmness level pillows provide adjustable loft and support a side sleeper needs to keep the neck aligned with the spine.
Puredown’s Goose Down Feather Gusset Side Sleeper Pillow is the perfect choice for side sleepers. Featuring firm density and extra pillow loft, this gusseted pillow supports a variety of sleeping positions and types of sleepers. With its generous height and boxy shape, this firm pillow provides proper alignment of neck and head for back and side sleepers alike.
Back sleepers need a pillow with good support to promote spinal alignment. A pillow should provide firm support so the back is straight without pushing the head up too much. Adding a neck roll can help to alleviate pressure on the back of your neck. If you sleep on your back, supportive pillows that conform to the shape of your head and neck will provide the comfort and support you need.
Featuring a blend of 90% goose feathers and 10% goose down, this comfortable pillow contours to your body shape and is a great choice for head-rest as it provides plenty of neck support, aiding in spine alignment, thus offering you amazing sleep quality. These medium-firm density pillows offer a perfect level of firmness and are an excellent option for back, side, and combination sleeper.
Stomach sleeping is a position that people usually resort to when they cannot find comfort in other sleeping positions. In some cases, stomach sleeping can be beneficial. Because it opens up your airways, sleeping on your stomach can help reduce snoring. However, sleeping on your stomach can have some disadvantages as well. Although sleeping on your stomach reduces snoring, it can cause back and neck strain, which can interfere with sleep.
Down pillows are designed to provide the correct level of support for stomach sleepers. Down pillows provide soft support to your head, neck, and shoulders so you can sleep in any position – from back to side to stomach. These softer pillows offer medium loft, allowing your head to sink and properly align your posture during sleep, reducing strain on your neck and spine and making you feel instantly refreshed when you wake up in the morning.
Featuring an impeccable blend of 60% down fiber and 40% feather fiber, this soft pillow gives you supreme loft to sink into while you sleep. It consists of a 100% cotton cover that is both lightweight and breathable. The double-layered fabric helps prevent feather pricks, while careful single-needle stitching ensures a durable seam. The white corded piping along the border of this feather pillow adds a touch of elegance while preventing fill loss.
