Pillows and sleeping positions are closely related to each other. We are sure that you don’t want to start a day with the pain in your neck, shoulder, and back. The pillow that is suitable for sleeping position will help you sleep better, avoid these pains, and improve the quality of your life. Moreover, after choosing a mattress for your family, you definitely need to have a beautiful and high-end pillow set for the sleeping space. Let us walk you to how to choose suitable pillows for your sleeping position!

1. Best pillows for supine position

If you have a habit of sleeping on your back, choose a pillow that is not too thick and a buckwheat pillow is highly recommended to keep your head into place, and hold your head from rolling from side to side. It will also help the neck and spine not to be in the wrong position, help deepen your sleep, and make the body comfortable when you waking up the next morning.

If you frequently wake up with lower back pain, try placing your knee or lower back under a pillow. This will help reduce pain on your spine and may prevent your body from rolling over in order to reduce the pressure. If you are not sure which pillow you should buy, don’t hesitate to contact us for the best advice!

2. The best pillow for your prone position

For those who often sleep under the belly (this position is not recommended), choose a thin pillow to avoid discomfort, pain over the body when waking up. It will keep your neck aligned with the spine. In addition, you can also place a thin pillow under the stomach that can help you avoid lower back pain.

3. The best pillow for your side position

People who sleep on their side have the risk of waking up with pain in the shoulders, hips or neck because one side of the body has to carry the weight of the whole body during sleep. This position also makes the head farther away from the mattress than the supine or prone position. 

Side sleepers will need a firmer and higher pillow to fill the gap between their ear and shoulder. Moreover, placing a pillow between your knees will also keep your hips straight and prevent muscle pain.

Note: In addition to the three basic sleeping positions mentioned above, there are still other positions, or maybe you like to rotate your body, change the sleeping position many times during the night. In this case, having a bolster pillow would be a perfect choice. A bolster pillow is not only suitable for people who have a habit of shrinking their legs while sleeping, but it also helps them not to feel suddenly when changing the sleeping position, thereby also helping to reduce the phenomenon of getting startled.

4. Pay attention to the material when choosing a pillow

Experts advise that we should choose a pillow with good elasticity to support the neck vertebrae, avoiding neck and back pain. Pillows nowadays are made of many different materials, not only giving many choices for customers, but each material brings different uses to every product.

Cotton pillows: Cotton pillow is a very familiar material in the bedding market. Soft natural cotton has a high airiness, the airflow can easily circulate to help the pillow always stay dry and they are easy to wash and dry.

Natural latex pillows: Natural latex pillows are made from 100% natural latex to ensure the quality and value of products. Latex is one of the most popular materials for pillows because of its durable and supportive. It will not collapse under the weight of your head like other materials.

Feather pillows: The feathers of poultry (chickens, ducks, geese, etc.) undergo modern processing technology to bring you soft pillow products. On the other hand, feather pillows are very cool, suitable for all ages.

Memory foam pillows: Not yet as popular as cotton pillows, latex pillows, etc., but memory foam pillows have outstanding advantages. They have good elasticity, support your neck, nape and shape your head effectively.

A buckwheat pillow (aka Sobakawa): is a traditional Japanese pillow filled with buckwheat hulls which are the small, hard husks that protect the buckwheat kernel. Buckwheat pillows are proven ways to achieve a better, more relaxed sleep.
