Pillow fillings. Synthetic or natural? Down or feather? Latex or memory foam?
There is no correct answer – the ideal filling will vary from person to person. There are a variety factors to consider when choosing the right pillow filling – depending on your specific needs for softness, firmness and cost. Natural down and feathers are often touted as the most luxurious options, but these may not suit every budget. Your best bet is to conduct some research and decide what matters most to you. Is it softness? Density? Cost-effectiveness for the entire family? Make sure you know what you want in a pillow and of course, feel free to see our comparison page
Is it time for a new pillow?
To ensure good hygiene, your pillow should ideally be replaced every six months, and most definitely every 2 years. While dust mites don’t pose a dangerous health risk or cause disease, they can trigger allergies in as many as two thirds of people. You don’t want to be sharing your bed with the mites that make a home in your pillow, so we recommend airing you pillows when you change your bed linen, washing your pillows (following their special care instructions) and replacing them at least every 18 months. See this page for complete information.
