Pillow Talk

Pillows aren't just at the head of your bed for aesthetic reasons. They are so much more important than that. Pillows are meant to provide the correct support for your neck and spine while you are sleeping. Therefore, the position in which you sleep plays an important role in determining which pillow best suits your needs.

"The materials contained in the fill of a pillow determines its firmness," Everloft® Vice President of Sales Mike Schwieger said. "The amount of filling material also decides a pillow's firmness as well. The more fill present, the firmer a pillow will feel."

He added that different combinations of filling materials are used to create varying comfort levels and lend additional features and benefits.

Following are some criteria to consider when choosing a pillow maintaining longevity of your pillow:

* The purpose of a pillow is dual: to provide comfort and to keep your neck and spine aligned while you sleep.
* Soft pillows are best for people who sleep on their stomachs.
* Medium firmness pillows are best suited for individuals who sleep on their backs.
* Side sleepers need the most neck support, which can be found in the firmest pillows. Side sleepers should make sure the height of the pillow is roughly the same as the length of their shoulders - (the distance between the base of the neck and the end of the shoulder).
* Fluff your pillow regularly. This incorporates fresh air into the pillow and helps keep its shape.
* Clean your pillow often. Read and follow the manufacturer's care instructions.
