What kind of pillow do you have...?!


Sorry for the boring question, but we could really do with some new pillows and I never know whether it's worth springing for more expensive ones or just replacing cheap ones regularly. I LOVE the pillows in hotels like travelodge but no idea what they are called ha!

I have three different pillows - shameful I know!

My bottom pillow is a memory foam. They are really firm and slightly uncomfortable at first but mines is now shaped to me perfectly. This is my "head" pillow.

I then have a hollowfibre pillow. It is fairly thick but soft. I'm a tummy sleeper so I lie on this one (I started doing this when pregnant and then pp but haven't really stopped ...)

I also have a feather pillow which I do diagonally across the other two pillows. Ethically I dislike this pillow buy I have had it for years and I figure the ducks ir whatever were dead anyway so throwing it out now isn't going to change that but I won't buy another.

The type of pillow you go for should depend on your sleep position. If you are a tummy sleeper you should have a thinner pillow. If you are a side sleeper then you should have a firm bulky pillow (like memory foam) and if you are a back sleeper then a medium pillow is best I believe.

I have a memory foam pillow, its a bit hard but I love it, it was pricey though at €50, at the time I baught it I was suffering neck pain & it was supposed to help stop it and surprisingly it did, I miss my pillow when I'm away, I find it so comfy !!

Thanks guys, I've seen some memory pillows in the next sale but I'm not sure if I'd like it, I like the massive, soft but firm kind if that makes sense?! I'm a fussy sleeper and rotate from tummy, back and side...I think my husband could sleep on a bed of nails irritatingly. I'm not keen on feather pillows as my head sinks in too much. Oh the stress ha!

A memory foam on top from Dunelm, and then a slightly smaller cheaper one underneath

This is pretty much me. Do you normally only have one pillow? If not id recommend a memory foam with feather on top! That way you have the firmness of the memory foam but also the softness of the feather (or hollowfibre)

I normally have 2 but yes I tend to have a firmer one on the bottom and softer on the top! So I may get the memory foam pillow from next after all.

Someone on another forum said they rang premier Inn and they use these ones http://www.beddingcomfortstore.co.uk...-pair-785.html
I'm tempted to try them as I love hotel pillows too!
