Those soft squishy, hard supporting, or anything in-between sleeping accessories.
All of us who like sleeping with a pillow can tell you that having our favorite pillows is essential for us to get a good night’s sleep.
But not all pillows are created equal.
Some are filled with materials that last for only a couple months before the pillow is complete uncomfortable and unusable, while others are filled with heavenly substances that practically ensures a good night’s sleep every time.
The trick is distinguishing the really good from the mediocre and the shoddy.
That’s why we’ve compiled a handy little top three list of the best pillow filling materials.
- Memory Foam
This popular choice is everywhere right now. Its faddishness makes it the pillow that all the cool cats are using. And there are some definite benefits, like providing firm support without being too hard, helping relieve back and neck pain, and being hypoallergenic and hygienic.
However they are also heat retaining, pretty heavy, and can give off a strange, chemical smell that can be bothersome to get rid of, although it’s not harmful.
With similar benefits to memory foam pillow but without quite the denseness, latex pillows are cooler, bouncier, and lighter choices. However, the biggest drawback is that these pillows tend to get heavier and denser over time and they are very firm, so if you don’t like that, they might be the right choice for you!
- Gel cooling memory foam
Okay, we may be a little bias on this one, but there’s some HUGE benefits from sleeping in a gel cooling memory foam pillow!
With a gel cooling memory foam pillow, you get the best of memory foam, without the negatives!
The biggest cons of memory foam pillows are that they’re very hot and very heavy.
By adding gel cooling technology to a breathable polyurethane foam filling, our pillows allow you to sleep cool and comfortable, without sacrificing the support your body needs. They’re also hypoallergenic, easy to take care of, and can relieve pressure.
