Each and every one of our pillows has been designed to provide maximum comfort and as we spend a third of our life in bed, choosing the correct pillow is one of the most important things you can do to help achieve a fulfilling nights sleep. Front, back or side? Warm or cool? These are all questions you should be asking yourself. So it’s time to be tough on your favourite pillow and take a look at some of the things you should consider:
If you sleep on your front
When lying on your front, your spine is already quite straight and therefore a pillow with a firm rating is probably the worst thing you can have, as this will tilt your spine backwards and leave you with neck pain. Make sure you have a softer pillow to ensure the best support for your neck. You should opt for a pillow which is not over filled and maintains the head and neck position throughout the night.
If you sleep on your back
Many people who sleep on their back only need a soft or medium level support, to keep the spine in alignment. A too firm pillow can cause neck and shoulder pain.
If you sleep on your side
Side sleepers do benefit from more support to ensure the spine is aligned and offer comfort for the neck and shoulder. A medium to firm support pillow is ideal for side sleepers.
What’s your body frame?
Combine the way you sleep with your body frame. If you have broad shoulders and sleep on your side, you’ll need a firm pillow that can maintain its shape to support your spine. If you have a small frame then a soft to medium pillow will suffice.
