When it comes to buying mattress, pillows, blankets, and linens, people often forget how important it is to have a good pillow. A good pillow can be the difference between an interupted sleep cycle and a sleep that is satisfying and revitalizing. Mattress Makers is also a San Diego chemical free pillow store - we make custom pillows using all natural fillers. Learn more on how you can create the perfect non-toxic pillow for yourself.
Custom Design Your Pillow
To create the best pillow for you, you need to ask yourself two things:
- Do you want a soft or firm pillow:
A soft pillow is great for someone who likes to mold or fold the pillow into various shapes. A firm pillow is suitable for people who want their pillow to be firm and consistent.
- How thick do you want the pillow to be:
People who sleep on their back should get a pillow with thin-to-medium thickness. This allows the head to be slightly elevated. Side sleepers need a pillow that is medium-to-thick in thickness because the distance from the shoulder to the head is greater.
In general, you want a pillow that will keep your head and neck in alignment. If the pillow is not correct, you may wake up with a sore neck or a headache.
