Pillow sense for a good nights sleep is essential if you have sleeping problems.
You should always buy new pillows as soon as the old ones lose their bounce.
You can also purchase ‘eye pillows’ which are filled with lavender to help you sleep.
A lovely new pillow or eye mask would make a great Christmas gift.
The Pillow Advisor explains how to choose the correct pillow to suit the way you sleep.
- Sleep on your front (you are a tummy sleeper) – Choose a softer pillow (down pillow or a soft, low-fill synthetic pillow)
- Sleep on your back (you are a back sleeper) – Choose a medium thickness pillow (high-fill down pillow, orthopaedic memory foam pillow or medium synthetic pillow)
- Sleep on your side (you are aside sleeper) – Choose a medium-high thickness pillow (high-fill down pillow, memory foam pillow or medium-high density synthetic pillow)
- A mixture of all or some of these (you are a mixed sleeper) – Choose a medium thickness pillow (high-fill down pillow or medium synthetic pillow)
