Choosing a Pillow Doesn’t Have to be Pain in the Neck


Like all great pairings such as champagne and caviar, so too is the perfect mattress and pillow.  A handcrafted custom mattress won’t bring you the maximum comfort possible if it is matched with the wrong pillow.

The right pillow will support your head and neck properly to allow your spine to remain in perfect alignment and keep your airway open.  If your pillow is too soft, your head will drop and extend your neck in an awkward position and if your pillow is too thick, it will force your head up in the opposite direction with the same uncomfortable result.  This pain in your neck can cause you to toss and turn through the night trying to eliminate the pressure that builds up over time.  These unaligned neck positions can cause an increase in snoring or aggravate sleep apnea.

How do you choose the right pillow?  There are several factors that must be considered such as the length of your neck, the distance between both your head and neck to the mattress with your back and neck aligned.  Do you sleep on your back or side?  Do you get hot at night?  There are a lot of pillow options available and it can be time consuming and frustrating with trial and error to find the right pillow on your own.  Speaking to one of our sleep system professionals when you purchase a mattress is an excellent way to obtain expert help in finding your perfect mattress and pillow combination.
