Do you know the differences for the various pillows with different fillings?
There is no “one-pillow-fits-all” approach when it comes to choosing the right one. Here’s a lowdown on some of the most popular pillow material types in the market.
COTTON: Soft, yet with sufficient support, cotton pillows are firmer than their feather counterparts as they don’t sink, but may compress with prolonged use.
GOOSE FEATHER: A very luxurious option that is extremely soft and fluffy, goose feather pillows are durable and very comfortable to the touch.
MICROFIBRE: A synthetic polyester filling, microfibre pillows are often firm and breathable, and do not trap moisture such as perspiration. They’re perfect for sleepers who are allergic to natural down feathers or wool.
MEMORY FOAM: Memory foam pillows are some of the firmest pillows on the market. They can adapt to head and neck contours and offer good support, as well as aid in pain relief.
