There’s nothing better than achieving a good night’s sleep. From feeling well-rested to keeping your heart healthy and reducing your stress levels, the benefits of getting a good night’s sleep are endless. As well as a comfortable mattress and protector, warm bedding and good quality sheets, our heads also need the ultimate comfort and support to help us achieve a quality night’s sleep, every night.
In an ideal world, we’d easily find the perfect pillow which ticks all the boxes, but it’s not that simple. We’ve decided to put together, Your Guide to Choosing the Perfect Pillow, to help make finding ‘the one’ just that little bit easier.
Choosing the perfect pillow isn’t as straight forward as what you might think. In fact, there are many considerations that need to be taken into account.
Afterall, there is nothing worse than getting home and realising your pillow isn’t as soft or as firm as you thought it was in the shop. So, here are the factors you should consider before purchasing
1. Consider your chosen level of comfort – low, medium or high profile?
2. Consider your chosen level of support – soft, medium or high?
3. What’s your preferred sleeping style – are you a back, side or stomach sleeper?
4. Existing neck and related back pain – this will affect your chosen level of support.
5. How long you’d like your pillow to last – does it have a warranty? Do you have a pillow protector?Shop All Pillows
Whether you’re a side, back or stomach sleeper, or just need a pillow for overall comfort and support, we have the perfect pillow options to provide you with a restful night’s sleep, regardless of the position you sleep in.
If you’re a side sleeper, extra neck support will be required while you sleep. To get the perfect night’s sleep on your side, we recommend opting for a medium / high profile pillow, tailored to your specific comfort level.
Back sleepers need to ensure an extra level of support is around the neck to achieve a more comfortable, better night’s sleep. With this in mind, choose a medium profile pillow, offering extra support, that suits your comfort levels.
If you’re a stomach sleeper, it can sometimes be difficult to find the perfect pillow to help you achieve a good night’s sleep. We recommend choosing a lower, soft profile pillow to rest your head upon.
Perhaps you toss and turn in your sleep, you’re pregnant, or just want an all-rounder pillow that you can rely on to provide you with an equal level of comfort and support throughout the night, no matter the position you sleep in.
Choosing the perfect pillow for you to rest your head upon each night is an investment to getting a good night’s sleep. But, in order to make your new pillow last longer and feel even more comfortable, it’s important to properly protect your pillow with a Pillow Protector. Using a Pillow Protector will not only help to increase the longevity of the pillow, but to improve breathability while you sleep and to regulate your body’s temperature for a more comfortable and relaxing sleep each night.
