How To Choose A Comfortable Down Pillow

A good quality down pillow will cushion your head and neck with gentle support while being very adaptable to the specific shape and weight of your head, neck and shoulders.

 

The correct firmness for your pillow will help to give you a comfortable, restful sleep. It will keep your head, neck and spine aligned while sleeping, reducing stress and unwanted aches and pains.

 

The Firmness you choose should be based on your sleeping style.  For example, if you sleep on your stomach, a soft pillow, with less down, will let your head and neck rest closer to the bed.  If you sleep on your side, a firm pillow, with more down, will keep your head and neck elevated.

  • If you are petite with smaller shoulders and sleep on your side, or if your sleeping position changes throughout the night, a Medium firmness would be a good choice.
  • If you sleep on a very soft bed, you may sink into the bed more than your pillow does. If so, you may want to consider a softer pillow.

Feather Pillows

Some people prefer a harder feeling pillow, with less "cush" compared to a down pillow.  Feather pillows, or pillows filled with a blend of feathers and down, are firmer with more of a "hard packed" feeling compared to a down pillow.  Feathers do not have a "fill power" measurement.  Other choices for a firmer harder packed pillow include Latex, or solid memory foams like Tempurpedic®. Pillows can also be filled with cotton, pieces of cut foam, microbeads, kapok...   the list does go on.

 

Other Considerations

For sleeping, a Standard size pillow is often preferable, just because they tend to fit your head a bit better. Some people do love to sleep with big pillows. This is why our king size pillows are sewn with internal sealed baffles to keep the down from shifting from side to side. These baffles also help to prevent the "enveloping" (folding around your head) that is a common problem when sleeping with most other king size down pillows.

 

Down pillows will "break in" with use, becoming softer and flatter with time, depending on factors such as humidity, how the pillow is used, etc. Following our simple pillow care pointers will help your keep pillow fluffy and supportive for a long and restful life.
