What Pillow Filling Should I Choose?
At Sleep and Snooze, we have a ton of cheap pillows available. Although they all look alike, some of them are different in terms of material and style. It’s important to choose the right one depending on your needs and sleep position. Here’s a quick breakdown of what we offer and how they differ.
Hollow fibre bed pillows are strong, durable, and affordable. They’re also available in a range of firmness grades, allowing you to choose the best one for your sleeping style. Due to their versatility, hollow fibre pillows are one of the most popular styles in the UK. They’re categorised with a cotton slip that covers a man‐made fibre filling. If you’re looking for a simple pillow that ticks all the boxes, hollow fibre is definitely the one to go with.
Another type of pillow Sleep and Snooze sells is orthopaedic. These innovative pillows can offer you an effective sleep by cushioning your neck and aligning your spine more efficiently. If you’ve been suffering with neck pain, these pillows could be your saving grace. You’d expect these pillows to be more expensive than your standard hollow fibre. However, our prices for orthopaedic pillows start lower, priced from £11. For a superior sleeping experience, see our Sarah Jane collection here.
Struggle to find a pillow that doesn’t cause an allergic reaction? Hypoallergenic pillows might be your best option. These pillows are designed to be used by people who are allergic to natural materials. By using them, you can alleviate any sneezing, wheezing, or rashes that’s a result of other bedding. We have hypoallergenic products available in our collection, such as our Silent Night Pillow Pack. Check it out if you’re looking to reduce reactions and finally achieve a pleasant sleep.
Choosing The Right Pillow For Your Sleeping Position
Your sleeping position has a big impact on which pillow you should choose. If you were to choose the wrong one, you could end up with a painful neck and back in the morning. Making sure you have a pillow that compliments your sleeping positioning and aligns your spine is definitely something you need to consider. Here’s a quick rundown of the pillow you need depending on how you sleep.
Best Pillow for Side Sleepers
Side sleepers make up the majority of the population and it’s essential you choose a pillow that has a medium or soft firmness rating. Because you’re sleeping on your side, you’ll need something to fill the space between your neck and head. For this reason, orthopaedic and memory foam make for excellent pillows for side sleepers. They contour to the natural position of your neck and prevent your spine from being misaligned. Check out our orthopaedic range above.
Best Pillow for Back Sleepers
Another common sleeping position is back sleeping. Individuals who adopt this sleeping position should aim for shallow, medium pillow. What you don’t want is for your head to be too raised as this can result in neck pain the following morning. At Sleep and Snooze, we have a range of medium pillows that work perfectly for the back sleeper. See our range above for a full overview.
Best Pillow for Front Sleepers
The final sleeping position we’ll cover is the front sleeper. These are rarer but still need to be discussed. Front sleepers need a shallow, soft‐medium pillow as well, similar to back sleepers. This is because anything too high and firm will cause their head to rise slightly, causing discomfort. If you were to use a higher/thicker pillow as a front sleeper, you’ll know about it in the morning. Our collection caters for front sleepers as well. Have a browse of our soft‐medium options and you’ll find something that matches your style.
How To Care For Pillows
Nobody wants to be buying a new pillow every few months. Therefore, learning how to take care of your pillow and maintain its lifespan is incredibly important and can prevent a lot of unnecessary spending.
To keep your pillow looking fresh and clean, washing it regularly can be beneficial. It’s important to check the label though as certain materials can’t be washed or dried at a certain heat. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines before throwing it in the washer and hoping for the best.
