Sleeping on the wrong pillow is just as bad as sleeping on a saggy mattress. Resting the head on the wrong one can also contribute to our grogginess and stiff neck when waking up.
Just like a good mattress, the right pillow should be able to give your head and neck the right comfortable support. It must not turn flat rather quickly.
The pillow’s fluff matters as this is how it cushions your head and neck better. The fluffier they get, the longer it will provide such comfort. Fluffiness also indicates good air flow circulation, keeping the pillow fresh. Check to see if your pillow has enough fluff by folding it. If it returns to its original form on its own, then it has passed the test.
Pillows also carry thread counts, and as with bedding, higher thread counts mean the pillow would have a better feel on your skin. A standard 300 thread count would do, but if you want a more luxurios feeling, get the ones with 500 thread count or higher.
Take note of what’s the filling inside the pillow, as they also contribute to making this the best to sleep on. There are several types of filling that include down feathres, fibers or foam. Some are hypoallergenic and some are washable via machine. You can also opt for memory foam pillows that work just like memory foam mattress and keep the head well-supported. However, memory foam has the tendency to retain heat.
