I'm a side sleeper & find one pillow is too flat and two pillows slide all over the place. Last night I used two fairly soft feather & down pillows pushed into a single pillowcase and slept really well so this morning I've been reading up on pillows www.which.co.uk/reviews/pillows/article/choosing-the-best-type-of-pillow but the article won't show me the next stage - the best makes. Any suggestions?
It's very difficult to recommend pillows, as they are the requirements for each person is different. I love memory foam, but they are a bit marmite. I found getting the right support with comfort tricky with memory foam. For years I have been buying a Putnams, it has a recess for your ear and fits into your shoulders. However, as I need a new one around every 3 years, it gets a bit expensive.
I'm thinking of going back to a Dunlopillo next time, they did last longer and have probably been improved comfort-wise since I last had one. I particularly like the sound of the slimmer version in the link below, I only like one pillow and find most of them too deep.
I've only slept on a memory foam pillow once & I've no idea what make/ type it was, but I didn't like it and hardly slept. It was hard and hot. A bit of a harsh judgement maybe after just the one night and perhaps a few more nights might have changed my mind. Himself likes feather/down pillows and that's what I've bought him for years. I find despite what the label states, they do not wash well so I change them every two years and it's coming up to that time now. The last lot were a bit too soft for me. I thought I'd cracked it with a synthetic pillow from Lidl a while back but it went to the tip after 6 months. QVC had a few that pricked my interest. I would have liked to have tried some & of course there's the bonus of returning them if you don't like them, but they've sold out.
I asked the assistant to show me the fattest pillow they had & that was the result. She even suggested I took the one on display and had a little lie down on one of the beds. I did! I started a trend too as another couple took their choice & had a little lie down lol
