Sleep Products | March 19, 2020

Knowing how to choose the right pillow will help you make an informed decision about which type of pillow will work best for your favourite sleeping position. At Innovative Sleep Solutions, we understand how much of a difference choosing the right pillow can make on your overall health. That is why we carry a wide selection of different pillows, and our team would be more than happy to help you select the best pillow for your wants and needs.

Choose a Pillow that is Ideal for Your Sleeping Position

Since the main purpose of a pillow is to let you sleep with your head, neck, and spine in the most natural alignment possible, choosing the wrong kind of pillow can make it difficult to wake up feeling rested and refreshed. When choosing the right pillow for you, make sure to consider your favourite sleeping position and which style of pillow will work best for that position. In most cases, people who sleep on their side should choose a slightly firm pillow, while people who sleep on their backs should choose a somewhat flat pillow and people who sleep on their stomachs should choose a softer pillow.

Choose the Right Pillow Filling

It is also important to choose the right pillow filling, especially for people with asthma or allergies that might be negatively affected by different fillings, such as feathers. In most cases, people with asthma or allergies should consider choosing wool, cotton, or memory form pillows.

One of the most popular types of pillow fillings is memory foam because it is available in a range of different shapes and sizes that meet all kinds of sleeping position requirements. Anyone who is suffering from neck, shoulder, or even jaw problems can often benefit from switching to a memory foam pillow because it will be able to provide them with the level of support needed to get a good night’s sleep. Compared to other types of pillows, memory foam filling lasts a long time and is able to contour to the sleeping person’s head and neck, making it extremely comfortable to sleep on.
