CHOOSING YOUR PERFECT PILLOW
The start of a new year is the time to turn the calendar as well as turn over old habits and exchange them for new resolutions - including improving your sleep. Getting a better night's sleep allows you to live a more balanced, productive, and fulfilled life.
Different sleep positions have unique needs and should turn to a different pillow candidate to help them get a great night’s sleep.
Side Sleepers - Sleeping on your side is good for health and wellness as it allows for support of the natural curve of the spine. Side sleepers should look for a firm pillow that supports the head, neck, and shoulders, preventing nerve and muscle cramps from occurring overnight and over the course of time. Good choices for side sleepers include the AirDuci Latex Surround Pillow, Diamond Support Pillow, or Aquaplush® Hypoallergenic Polyester Pillow. Another type of pillow side sleepers should consider is a pillow they can grab or wrap their body around while sleeping, such as the Essential Body Pillow or Love Maternity Pillow.
Stomach Snoozers - People that sleep on their stomachs need a pillow that can offer support while keeping a flatter, lower profile, which helps keep the spine, neck, and head aligned in a natural curve. If a pillow is too high, it can cause a stomach sleeper’s neck and spine to have to adjust to a larger curvature and could cause pain in the neck and lower back. Good choices for stomach sleepers include our All White Goose Down Pillow, 50/50 White Goose Down and Feather Pillow, and 50/50 White Goose Down and Feather Pillow with Organic Cotton Ticking.
Back Shuteye - Those who prefer to count sheep on their back should look for a pillow that offers support and helps maintain proper alignment when in the prone position. If this sounds like you, then good pillow candidates include the 25/75 White Goose Down and Feather Pillow, or the Rhapsody Wrap Down and Feather Pillow.
For sleepers looking for a soft pillow, we recommend the All White Goose Down Pillow. Much like sleeping on a cloud, this soft goose down pillow will help you have some of the best sleep of your life.
Sleepers looking for a firm feel can turn to the AirDuci Latex Surround Pillow. It is a great alterative to a traditional foam pillow, but lighter and airy due to air holes that run throughout. Another alternative for sleepers with a firm preference is the Aquaplush Hypoallergenic Polyester Pillow, Firm. Filled with 100% combed polyester fiber, this pillow has a great plush feel with the firmness to provide support.
If you prefer a medium firmness, the Rhapsody Wrap Down and Feather Pillow features a soft, plush outside with a firm inner core, providing the best of both worlds. Chances are good that you have slept on this pillow while traveling and staying at some of the best hotels around the world. Other medium firmness options include the 25/75 White Goose Down and Feather Pillow.
One of our favorite down and feather pillows is the San-Down Wrap Pillow, which combines 50% white goose down and 50% white goose feather. Other options include the hotel favorite, Rhapsody Wrap Down and Feather Pillow.
If you are looking for a pillow with only down fill, we recommend one of our clients' favorite luxury pillows, the All White Goose Down. This super-soft, hypoallergenic pillow is like sleeping on a cloud.
For sleepers looking for all the luxuriousness of a down pillow, with an alternative fill, we recommend the Fairfax Hypoallergenic Polyester Pillow or the hotel favorite Aquaplush Hypoallergenic Polyester Pillow (also available in a firm option).
