A good night’s sleep sets the tone for the day ahead. To prevent tight muscles and discomfort, it’s all about choosing the right pillow for you.
Investing in a pillow which complements your sleeping style is just as important as a supportive mattress and quality bedding. When it comes to choosing a new pillow, there are a few things to consider. Are you a tummy sleeper? Back sleeper? Or side sleeper? Your perfect pillow should feel incredibly comfortable from the moment you drift off to sleep to the moment you wake up in the morning.
When should you replace your pillow?
Pillows typically have a shorter lifespan than mattresses, and require changing every two years. If you find yourself waking up with an uncomfortable neck, this is an indication your pillow may be lacking proper support for your sleeping style. Other signs to look for include stains and discolouration or increased allergies.
What is the difference between profile and fill?
How a pillow looks and feels is dependant on two contributing factors. The profile of a pillow refers to its height (low, medium or high), while fill refers to the firmness of a pillow (soft, medium or firm). The best combination for you is relative to both body weight and sleeping style. Side sleepers for example, tend to require a medium profile pillow with a firm fill for proper neck support.
Which pillow is right for you?
When it comes to choosing the right pillow for you, start by building from the same foundation as you would your quilt. If you prefer a softer feel with tailored support, Sheridan offers a variety of pillows from luxurious feathers and down to supportive memory foam. For those suffering from allergies, our hypoallergenic microfiber fill is ideal.
If you like pillows to feel heavenly soft, our Deluxe Feather & Down Pillow features a beautiful 50/50 blend of white goose down and feathers, with a 300 thread count cotton sateen cover. To experience the same softness with a little more support, our Deluxe Feather & Down Surround Pillow includes a luxurious 100% white goose feather core, moulding to the head as you sleep. Our most opulent pillow however, is the Deluxe Feather & Down Latex Pillow, offering the support of latex while maintaining the feel of feather and down. Its innovative talalay latex core is highly durable and heat regulating for the ultimate night’s sleep.
For the ultimate support
If you’re a side or tummy sleeper that requires additional support, a memory foam or latex fill works to prevent stiffness in the neck and shoulders. For those who prefer a natural fill, our Deluxe Latex Pillow offers superior support for lasting comfort. It’s resilient latex inner feels firm while gently moulding to the head and neck. A second alternative is our Deluxe Memory Foam Pillow with a medium profile. Constructed with Dacron Memorelle fibrefill, this pillow memorises the shape of your head over time, for personalised comfort.
Allergies shouldn’t keep you from sleeping comfortably. Our Dream Deluxe Pillow prevents allergies without sacrificing comfort. Offering superior neck support, this pillow is made using a micro-fibre fill with antimicrobial and antibacterial properties to prevent bacterial build up. With a 100% cotton percale cover, it’s beautifully soft without causing sensitivities.
