Pillow talk

Recommended Posts

What's it all about ?

microfibre polyester, expensive memory foam,  wool, polyester balls , down and feathers.

I currently have a polyester filled pillow but get very hot. It seems a tad daft to rest your head on a cotton bag filled with plastic bags. What are others resting their heads on ? Pillow cases filled with old jumpers? Down and feathers ?

After experiencing neck pain from using soft pillows, I shelled out on a memory foam one shaped a bit like a capital B on it's side, if you can imagine such a thing.

Feels like a brick, but does mould itself to your head and neck beautifully.

I used a memory foam pillow for several years but found it too warm.

Wake up in the night sweating, turn the pillow over to the "cool" side, takes several minutes for it to adjust to your weight/shape.....by which time it's warm again!

To be fair, we had exactly the same experience with a memory foam mattress, comfortable enough but other than in the depths of winter far too warm for comfort.

Swapped to a John Ryan Coolblue hybrid foam that is much, much better and reverted to feather and down pillow.

Cheers. I did try a feather and down pillow once and although comfortable it gave me hay fever like symptoms. Unfortunately pillows are marked up in stores as non-returnable. Pillow roulette?

If you like the feel of a down pillow then wool might be a good alternative.

 

Cheers I think I will try to get a wool pillow. I also saw there are latex pilllows available although expect these to be firm .

I like mine soft and squashy.  Pure down pillows that were in a sale somewhere.
