Having just moved my entire kitchen and dining room around for a kitchen makeover – I’m pretty sore – particularly my neck and shoulders. That being said – I really need a good, comfy night’s sleep, so my choice of pillow is even more important than ever. Working for one of the world’s best pillow-making companies, I get to try many different types of pillows (in fact, I have a selection on my bed from which I choose depending on my mood)! But for those of you who can’t do that, having more information is key to picking the right pillow!
Cuddledown was featured this summer in “Pillow Talk,” an article in the Portland Press Herald, by reporter Ray Routhier, about choosing the perfect pillow, and we’re happy to share it with you. Among the highlights, Ray found information that was surprising to me – that back sleepers should use a “thinner” pillow so your head is not pushed forward. However, “thinner” doesn’t mean squishy – the pillow should be firm and supportive, just not overly thick! You don’t want a pillow that’s so soft your head and neck sink right to the mattress.
So enjoy the article and let us know your thoughts – what do you like in a pillow – soft and squishy? Firm and supportive?
Oh, and don’t forget – it’s that time of year – you can get a great Cuddledown pillow for 25% off! If that’s not the best incentive to getting your perfect pillow right now, what is?
