When you consider that your pillow makes up 25% of the total sleep surface of your bed, choosing the right one is essential to your quality of sleep. Your pillow works in unison with your mattress, to provide support for your head and neck, and to assist with spinal alignment. So it’s really important that when you choose your pillow, you pick the right one for you.
Sleepyhead has a range of pillow heights and feels to choose from, so you can pick the best fit for you and your mattress. By investing in the correct pillow you can:
- Reduce stress on your spine by providing the right support for your head and neck
- Sleep better with less aches and pains
- Feel more rested and refreshed upon waking up
- Reduce the triggers for asthma, allergens and dust mites
Your sleep position can also help determine the best pillow for you. Here’s a guide to help you find the right pillow.
Determine your sleeping position and choose your pillow based on this. What position do you usually sleep in?
- Tummy Sleepers – Low to medium profile, soft or medium feel.
- Back Sleepers – Medium, high or contour profile, medium or firm feel.
- Side Sleepers – High or contour profile, medium or firm feel.
- Multi-Positional Sleepers – Contour or medium profile, medium feel or firm feel
Test your pillow
Lying on a bed similar to your own for a minimum of ten minutes in the position you sleep in will help you get a feel for the pillow. You can find Sleepyhead pillows on the beds in our bedding department, and you can test them out before you buy to ensure you get the right pillow for you.
Get the right fit
Ensure the best fit by checking that the pillow fits snugly into the area between your shoulder and neck, to the point you are feeling supported and comfortable, while your head is parallel to the mattress to assist with spinal alignment.
Pillows, like mattresses, over time can accumulate moisture and other nasty things that can make your sleep environment unhealthy. Changing your pillow regularly and choosing a pillow that is treated with Ultra-Fresh can help protect you against a range of triggers for asthma and allergies including dust mites.
