Buying a Pillow
Bedtime: The favorite time of the day, isn’t it? After a hard day of job, stress, pressure, an overloaded subway, with people pushing you and being standing up during the entire return trip at the rush hour the only thing we want is to lay down the head on a soft and comfortable pillow, right?
Being our bedroom the most important place of the house, and being the bed the place where we spent the third part of every single day of our lives we deserve the best of bed stuff. Don’t you agree?
So, if you want to give yourself the best pillow, you have to look for one that fits your body and resting needs and, that also goes well with your bedding clothing.

But with bed pillows, things work differently. You have to look for something really well-made, lasts long and give you the comfort your body deserves, because buying a pillow is not only matter of comfort and fanciness, it is a matter of health.
Being our spinal cord the core of our bone system, upon which depends the function of the vital organs of our system as the heart, lungs and brain, we have to make sure it lies comfortably and straight during the day and moreover during the eight or nine hours it stays laid down in bed.
That leaves with the question, what to look in a pillow then?
First: The size. Most consumers usually think first on their bed. Would it look nice with it? It depends on what is best for you, your corporal size and your resting needs. Some people use two pillows, for instance.
Second: Support. You need a pillow that keeps the posture of your spine aligned. If you are back sleeper get a flatter pillow; if you are side sleeper, you need a very supportive pillow.
Third: The filling. The firmness of a pillow depends on the quantity of filling it has inside. Always find out what is the type of filling the pillow has.
For instance, with tempurpedic foam pillows you will always know what you are buying they come, since they are made of one single piece of memory foam come and generally the cover clothe is sold apart you can see what you are getting for your money.
A last recommendation is to always keep the washing instructions label when it comes the time to wash your pillow. Never throw it into the washing machine or it will get ruin. Only pillow cloths are machine washable.
