Feather and Black
There’s nothing more luxurious than real duck down to nestle your face into at the end of a tough day. This one is plump and bouncy despite its weighty 70 per cent down filling. Its high quality 100 per cent cotton exterior means it will stand the test of time, too – gone are the days of pulling feathers out of dog-eared pillow corners in the middle of the night.

Silent Night Studio Pillow
This could well be the cleverest pillow yet. It’s made of three layers of filling, each of slightly different heaviness and thickness, adding up to seven potential combinations. Remove one or more layers to find the right level of support to suit you. In reality it’s a genius option for a guest bedroom, where each visitor is likely to have a slightly different preference. The machine washable pillow is finished with a soft touch, anti-allergy cover designed to keep dust mites at bay.
From the award-winning mattress makers, this has what the brand calls a “pillow-in-pillow” design. In practise, that means inside there’s a smaller supportive cushion that zips into a softer outer made comfy by a filled gusset. The supportive part ensures the neck and spine are looked after and works with the body’s movement, while the outer keeps things soft-feeling. The outside cover’s 100 per cent cotton so it feels cool against the skin. Our tester found it springier than her usual down bedding and really comfortable, though the loft is relatively high, so bear in mind your pillow size preferences before buying. Comes in two sizes.
Ikea Ärenpris Pillow
You can’t go far wrong with Ikea’s bargain priced microfibre everyday options. They come rolled up and slowly fill out once unravelled to give a reliable pillow that is soft and – for those who like something to grab – large enough to manipulate. Its flat, wide design makes it ideal for back sleepers.
The Insider Pick
A good pillow means a good night’s sleep. We reviewed dozens of pillows to narrow down the choices to the ones you’ll love best. The Premium Adjustable Shredded Memory Foam Pillow from Coop Home Goods is our top pick. You’ll enjoy sweet dreams on this supremely comfortable pillow.
Back in the days of Ancient Egypt, a carved stone was considered a very comfortable and supportive pillow, but in today’s world, you’re probably looking for something a bit softer. Luckily, you’ve got a lot more to choose from than the people of ancient times.
There’s a nearly dizzying array of pillows on display in any bed ‘n bath shop, or on the virtual shelves of your favorite online home store. That can make it a bit difficult to choose the best pillow for your needs.
Is memory foam best? How about down? Or maybe you’re confused about all the different shapes: standard, contour, bolster. Well, have no fear, because we’ve done the research for you.
While ultimately, there is no “best for everyone” pillow — personal preference plays a huge part in determining the pillow you’ll like the most — we checked out all the top recommendations from consumer buying websites, listened to what pillow buyers had to say, and even tried out some of the pillows ourselves to bring you the five picks most likely to send you off to the land of Nod comfortably. Here’s what you need to know before we jump into the pillow fight.
Sorting out the different pillow fills
The main difference between types of pillows is their filling. While there are many specialty fills, the most common are the following six.
Memory foam : Originally created by NASA to cushion astronauts during reentry to Earth’s atmosphere, today, memory foam is one of the most popular types of pillow. It’s very supportive, conforms to your head and neck, is naturally hypoallergenic, and is especially good for those suffering from neck, shoulder, or upper body pain and stiffness. On the downside, it tends to be hot and is heavy.
Shredded memory foam : Take memory foam, shred it into small chunks, and you have a supportive, firm, and comfortable pillow filling without the heat and sweat of a traditional memory foam. Shredded memory foam molds and conforms to your body, but if you want it even more customized to your liking, it’s easy to push or pull into just the right loft and shape for your sleeping pleasure. : Real down has a luxurious, “sleeping on a cloud” fluffiness that some people love, and others hate. Down is very soft and lightweight, so it easily molds to the perfect loft and shape for your needs. It’s not very supportive, however, and tends to be expensive.
Polyester : Polyester is the typical fill in budget pillows. It’s soft, lightweight, and machine-washable, but not exceptionally supportive or firm. Still, it’s a good middle ground between the softness of down and the firmness of memory foam.
Buckwheat hulls : Buckwheat hull pillows are not nearly as popular in the United States as they are in Asia, but they definitely have their fan club. A buckwheat hull pillow feels a lot like a beanbag; the hulls move freely inside the pillow, allowing you to adjust the shape, loft, and firmness to your liking. This is one of the best pillow fills for those who “sleep hot,” as well. However, these pillows are heavy, and the hulls can make a rustling sound as you move. : There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love latex pillows, and those who hate them. For those who love them, the firm support with a slightly bouncy feel provides superior sleep comfort. For those who hate them, the usual complaint is that the pillow is just too firm. Latex pillows are heavy and usually expensive, but also very durable, naturally antimicrobial, and not too hot.
Pillow shapes and sizes
Along with different pillow fills, there are also different pillow shapes. Some, such as shams and throw pillows, are purely decorative. Others, such as body pillows, neck bolsters, and various chiropractic designs are specialty pillows. For basic sleep, the following four are the most popular pillow shapes.
Traditional : This is the basic, rectangular shape most people prefer. You’ll find three sizes: standard, queen, and king.
Contour : These pillows have raised rounded edges to snugly support your neck and a “valley” for your head. Most are made of memory foam and are quite firm.
Cervical : These pillows are shaped something like a cat bed: There’s a hollow in the center for your head, which is surrounded on all sides by higher neck rolls. Most are filled with polyester. Cervical pillows are a good choice for people with neck or spine pain and are often recommended by chiropractors.
Bolster : Bolsters are cylindrical pillows mostly used for comfortable support of arms and legs during sleep, but some people use them as regular bed pillows. They gently support the neck without placing any pressure on the shoulders or back.
What makes the
Coop Home Goods pillow particularly wonderful is that it’s adjustable. You can unzip the inner pillow cover to add or remove foam until the pillow is just the way you like it. It’s also hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant, so you won’t wake up sniffly or congested. When it’s time to clean the pillow, no problem — Just toss it in your washing machine and dryer. We recommend that you add another pillow or a blanket to balance the load, along with a couple of clean tennis balls to help fluff up the foam.
Coop Home Goods’ proprietary shredded memory foam is CertiPUR-US certified, meaning it’s guaranteed to be free of chemicals and toxins you really don’t want to sleep with, such as formaldehyde, lead, mercury, ozone depleters, PBDEs, phthalates, and TCEP flame retardants. Manufactured in California, the pillow has a 30-day guarantee, so if you don’t love it, you can return it with no questions asked.
Sleep Like the Dead found that 8percent of buyers love the Coop Home Goods Premium Adjustable Shredded Memory Foam Pillow. In fact, it’s the highest-rated memory foam pillow on the site. That matches numbers, where out of an astounding 12,200+ reviews, 8percent give the pillow four or more stars.
Washing a pillow
How long you can keep your pillow is also influenced by how your treat your pillow. How many times have you washed it in a year (if it can be)? Generally good quality pillows are washable and ideally should be washed at least 2-times per year! Why? Just like any other bedding item, they do capture dust, mites and particles of skin. Regular washing keeps it clean – if you leave to once a year, it’s a big job to restore it to its white glory.
However, whether they can be washed or not depends upon the composition you choose. Most microfibre pillows can be machine washed gently although the cheaper polyester pillows can go lumpy after a wash and pretty much not useful for anyone’s head anymore! Latex and down-based pillows can be washed gently or hand-washed although some cheaper latex pillows cannot be washed at all. Most pillows cannot be dry cleaned unless the manufacturer instructions permit it.
Polyester vs Microfibre Pillows
Synthetic pillows are another name for Polyster pillows and are the most popular around due as they are not expensive. They are filled with a polyester filling and are nice and bouncy initially but overtime will lose the ‘bounce’. Some Polyester pillows have had the filling anti-bacterial treated and have a higher gsm filling than others ensuring a better quality pillow as a result.
Microfibre pillows are another type of polyester and are the result of a different and newer manufacturing technique. Microfibre is definitely one of the wonder fabrics of modern day (see our Buying Sheets/Doona Cover Guide where Microfibre is explored in more detail) as they are generally easy to care for, breathe just like cotton and dry quicker. Microfibre pillows are filled by blowing in a fine denier fibre to give the effect of being filled like ‘down’. Obviously microfibre pillows will be a little more expensive than your standard polyester range.
Most quality synthetic pillows are excellent for those suffering allergies as compared to natural down, feather or wool pillows.
Down & Feather Pillows
The newer down and feather pillows manufactured these days tend to be in the more expensive range. They do offer great insulation and come in a quality casing to ensure no feathers escape (a problem with older duck and down pillows!). These pillows tend to need more maintenance and fluffing to keep them in shape. They are not as easily washable (the recommendation is to use a commercial grade washing machine due to size) compared to a microfibre option. Certainly the equivalent price range in latex or memory foam pillow options will hold their shape and are more allergy-free than down/feather options.
Soft vs Medium vs Hard pillows
Pillows are made to a scale of soft, medium and then firm. The most popular pillows sold and therefore made by manufacturers are ‘medium’. There are a few brands that make a ‘soft’ and you can see these on our site with ‘soft’ in the title. ‘Firm’ pillows are not so popular. Any new pillow is going to seem very soft in comparison to older pillows.
The amount of fill for non-latex/non-memory foam pillows also determines ‘fluffiness’ or ‘plumpness’ of a pillow. The average budget pillow has about 500gsm of filling, whereas your more expensive (and softer/fluffier) pillows could have up to 800gsm+ of filling.
The best way to choose how soft a pillow you need is to examine how you sleep. If you tend to sleep mainly on your stomach, then softer is better. If you are a side or back sleeper, you can go for a firmer type. The most popular is medium by far.
Different fillings will suit different needs and budgets. Pillows filled with duck down are a popular, but costly, choice. A down/feather mix is a more economical option. Polyester pillows are machine washable and budget friendly, while memory foam offers good upper-body support. Latex is a great option for allergy sufferers.
Tip: Pillows should be frequently aired in the sun to keep them fresh and plump.
The weight, softness and warmth of a duvet depends on its tog rating and filling, and tog ratings are based on a duvet’s ability to trap warm air. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet, with 2.– tog perfect for spring and summer and 10.– 13.ideal for autumn and winter.
Natural-filled duvets traditionally have better thermal properties than synthetic, and need less filling to achieve the same level of warmth, so their weight can be deceptive. Our best quality Canadian goosedown, for example, is very light indeed but has excellent thermal performance.
We have also specifically designed a lightweight synthetic duvet to combat those that do not like natural. The Lightweight Luxury has excellent warmth without the heaviness.
If you want flexibility and versatility, all-season duvets are a great choice. They consist of two separate duvets, usually a lightweight 4.tog for summer, a warmer tog for autumn and spring, and connect together for a 13.in winter.
Lightweight summer duvet 3.0 – 4.togSpring/Autumn weight duvet 7.0 – 10.togWinter weight duvet 12.0 – 13.tog
Ask in our shops about custom-made duvets made at our Herbert Parkinson factory in Lancashire, for couples who like differing levels of warmth in bed; no compromise is necessary as each side of the duvet can be given a different tog rating.
Fill power Duvets containing feather and/or down are also given a “fill power”. This is the volume occupied by the filling and it varies depending on the quality. It’s about how well the filling recovers and relates to thermal efficiency.
The higher the fill power, the better the duvet. With fill power ratings between 345gsm (grams per square metre) and 750gsm for our feather and/or down duvets and 475gsm to 750gsm for our synthetic and specialist duvets, you’re sure to find bedding that suits you perfectly.
All our natural duvets come in a boxed wall construction, where the filling held in each box allows an even distribution and prevents cold spots. Always shake your natural duvets from the side, and not the bottom, to prevent the filling from moving between boxes. For added comfort and quality all our natural duvets (except duck feather and down) have Nomite cases – Nomite guarantees that no feather escapes.
All synthetic duvets are constructed in a way that allows the filling to stay in its place, making them easier to maintain.
Duvets for children
When choosing a full-sized duvet for a child, unless their bedroom is very cold, it’s best to stick with a lighter weight duvet of 4.tog. As children are smaller it means that their duvet traps more air and increases the level of warmth over and above that experienced by most adults. A heavier duvet may well prove uncomfortable and is not recommended.
For babies and toddlers, we sell cot and cotbed duvets in our Nursery departments. Please note though, that duvets and pillows aren’t suitable for children under 1months, and that a room temperature of 18°C is recommended by many health professionals.
Single – 13x 200cm (mattress size W90 x L190cm or 3′ x 6’3″)
Double – 200x 200cm (W13x L190cm or 4’6″ x 6’3″)
Kingsize – 230 x 220cm (W150 x L200cm or 5′ x 6’6″)
Super kingsize – 260 x 220cm (W180 x L200cm or 6′ x 6’6″, or 2x zip and link beds)
Duvets with natural fillings are soft, light and comfortable, in the same way that natural fibres help your skin ‘breathe’ more effectively. They are also highly resilient and tend to last longer than those with synthetic fillings. We guarantee all our natural duvets for years.
Down duvets are lighter in weight than feather and down, but still offer the same level of warmth, and our options are all hardwearing and great value.
All our natural bedding suppliers provide us with a guarantee that their feather and down is sourced only as a by-product of the food industry. In addition, they’re monitored to ensure they practice the highest standards of animal welfare.
The higher the proportion of feather in a duvet, the cheaper and heavier it becomes. Many people prefer a heavy duvet, but don’t confuse weight with warmth, as a top quality down duvet may feel very light but has extremely effective thermal properties.
Natural-filled duvets should be professionally laundered because they need to be thoroughly dried, and this may be difficult for you to achieve at home. Please refer to the care guide that comes with your product on how to look after it. The number of times a duvet is laundered will have an impact on its lifespan, as will repeatedly lying or sitting on top of it as this has the effect of compressing the filling and eventually diminishing its ability to trap air.

Great value and high quality, it’s designed to keep you warm and comfortable with natural breathability for a good night’s sleep.

We also offer this filling in a split Mine and Yours duvet, perfect for couples who can’t agree on how warm their duvet should be – it comes with a cosy 10.tog on one side, and a cooler tog on the other.
Anti Allergen Pyrenean Down Innovative and groundbreaking, our Anti Allergen Pyrenean Down range is not only super soft and comfortable, but is also hypo-allergenic and therefore perfect for allergy sufferers who prefer to sleep in natural down.
Clinically proven to reduce allergy symptoms, it does not contain optical white, formaldehyde, perfume or any other unnecessary treatments that can affect airways and allergies.
Filled with the large, soft clusters of down from Pyrenean ducks, it is encased in a luxurious and tightly woven cotton cover that is down-proofed to seal in the natural filling.
Our synthetic duvets give the same warmth as natural fillings, and are a practical choice if you’re allergic to feathers and down, or if your duvet is likely to require frequent washing as synthetic fillings dry more easily.
However, the number of times a duvet is laundered will have an impact on its lifespan, as will repeatedly lying or sitting on top of it as this has the effect of compressing the filling, eventually diminishing its ability to trap air – especially with a synthetic duvet.

Mediflow Waterbase Pillow – Best Pillow for Neck pain ( Recommended by chiropractors)
Mediflow pillow is uniquely designed to offer unmatched support and comfort. I remember very well, I was advised to buy this pillow by my doctor due to a neck dislocation. Honestly, it helped in relieving the pain and offered me top premium support. Among all others, it is the only pillow which topped in all the categories. This was on a research that was carried in John Hopkins University. Actually, almost all the participants that were involved in the study, regarded Mediflow pillow to be the best in each of the five categories it was tested for. The pillow was ranked the best for neck pain, minimal sleep interruptions, falling asleep within the shortest time and regaining sleep quickly after waking up in between the night.
To ensure topnotch comfort and support is achieved, the pillow is genially crafted using top premium materials. As well, with the use of a unique design that allows customization of the pillow.
Tricore Cervical Pillow Full Size
I am not sure about what the designer of this pillow was thinking, but I can say that he or she must have been a genius. The thought of it makes me understand the humans have many ways of thinking and some just think best. The name itself speaks volume. With a small knowledge of anatomy, the cervical region refers to the neck. And yes, it is an ideal pillow for neck support. This is especially in neck, head and other orthopaedic injuries. I would like to meet the designer and just get his side of the story about the pillow.
Tricore cervical pillow is the most comfortable pillow that is in the market. Comfort cannot be left out if at all its purpose is to be achieved. This is maximized by the springy fibres which are able to accommodate various body sizes and shapes and conform to them. Also the sides are made in a way that even on turning, the comfort and shape is still retained. To me, this should be an ideal feature for any pillow meant for neck support if not all. The smooth pillow cover is also sensitive to the skin and gives a good feeling.
Who doesn’t like clean sleeping environs? I guess everyone does. The good news is that the Shredded memory pillow is allergen free. No chemicals or dust mites can be detected in this type of pillow. Especially for the people with allergy or for the younger children this is nothing to be afraid of. The pillow itself is washable either by hand or using a machine. This is pretty cool, especially in dusty houses where dust is a menace. Somebody will ask me how long will it take for it to dry? The answer lies on the light pillow casing and the padded foam which dries very fast when exposed to wind or heat.However, a pillow case is always useful for maximum hygiene level because it is even easier to remove, clean or replace.
Has a little newness smell but goes away
Natural rubber or latex has many uses. One would wonder if pillows can be made of it. I am sure you are asking so too. It is so amazing to have such pillows in the market. Remember, latex is durable. This is the main reason that you should consider to have this pillow. As I move into my new house I plan to buy this one now that I know about it. I can share the information with you because this is a choice that I know that most of you will consider too.
Not so good for very masculine necks
Cloundz Microbead Travel Neck Pillow- Best Pillow For Neck Pain and Travel
Traveling may be your hobby. Additionally, once in a while we all have to take a tour to a distant place and all that we yearn for is comfort so as to enjoy the ride. I never knew that pillows are travel accessories until I embarked on a journey with my colleagues who carried pillows with them. Frankly speaking, this was an eye opener. I was specifically intrigued by the cloudz microbead travel neck pillow which most of them had. I was so curious to know about it and this is all I found out.
Beyond Down Gel Fiber Pillow
The sleeping position that one chooses is very critical in the determination of whether you will have a quality and restful sleep. According to research, about 60 % of neck pain sufferers wake up with tiredness and aching joints due to poor sleeping posture. Therefore, adjusting to the correct sleeping style can substantially aid in improving your overall quality of sleep and health. If you are having the sleep apnea issue it is advisable to get a firm, supportive and comfy pillow that is perfect for side sleepers. As I had earlier mentioned, side sleeping is very helpful to sleep apnea sufferers. It relieves sleep apnea by increasing positive air flow and enabling correct spinal alignment. Beyond Down gel pillow is perfectly designed with side sleepers needs in mind. The exceptional craftsmanship offers an extremely comfy and relaxing sleep surface.
A supportive pillow is always needed so as to ensure appropriate spinal alignment. Having excellent neck support, impedes the problems of neck pain. To enhance maximal support the pillow has a 4.inch gusset stitched around the edges of the whole pillow. It prevents sagging of the pillow because side sleepers often press against the pillow with their shoulders. Ultimately, this ensures firm and supportive sleeping surface throughout the night.
Gel fiber fluffs off after sometime
No sufficient support for individuals with broad shoulders
Sleep Yoga Dual position pillow – best neck pain pillow for yoga
Waking up with neck pain can be frustrating and disgusting. More so, when you have long day chores ahead of you. Getting the best pillow for neck pain significantly helps its alleviation. Additionally, exercise such as yoga has significantly shown to improve neck pain. Sleep yoga dual pillow helps in prevention of neck pain while carrying out yoga exercises. The pillow is crafted with unmatched comfort and support. It is uniquely designed to cater for yoga support needs. If you are a fun of yoga and at the same have neck pain, then this is the perfect pillow for you!
The material used in the pillow is one of the critical factor that should never be ignored. The materials used determines the level of support, durability and firmness. The materials used include memory foam, feathers and polyester filling. Memory foam is among the best material because it contours to the body shape hence, provides optimal comfort and spinal alignment. The foam is also durable and does not overheat. On the other hand, polyester pillows are also equally comfortable but less durable compared memory foam pillow. Feather pillows ensure that you can move the feather to the area that you need more support. However, feather pillows are not recommended if you are allergic, asthmatic or hypersensitive to allergens.
Material that the Pillow is Made of
Once the pillow design and thickness are chosen, it will be time to look at the material that the pillow filling is made of.
Memory foam is another popular pick. It provides sufficient support and once you get up, the pillow will regain its original shape. Memory foam changes in accordance with your movements. This is the main reason why such pillows are great for all people, regardless of the sleeping style that they prefer. If you like try these pillow, check here for tips and reviews of
Most pillows are filled with feathers, foam, a synthetic mix or pieces of old cloth. Filling ensures that the pillow maintains its shape. How you want to use the pillow will be the determinant for the kind of pillow filling to choose. Even if you are buying them for beauty, you have to consider that from time to time they will be leaned on. You do not want pillows that begin to go out of shape after a few months of frequent use. You have to feel the pillows first and make sure they suit your purpose. Get the best filling material possible no matter the price for a longer life span of your pillow.
The size of your pillow will be determined by the size of the bed or couch you plan on using them on. Small pillows will look out of place on a really large couch, whereas those large fluffy and comfortable pillows will leave less space to sit on. These should be left for use on really large furniture. You do not want pillows that you have to throw on the floor each time you want to seat comfortably.
The shape of the pillows will also depend on how you plan on using the pillow. There are basically four pillow shapes that you will have to choose from. Round, square, rectangle and bolster. The best pillow for your couch is a square pillow as it offers the best in back support. Square pillows are also the most common and so finding the right one will not be that hard. Round pillows will work best on your sharp edged furniture. They make the furniture look less edgy to the eye. Finding the color that goes well with it will also go a long way in achieving the goal. A mixture of two or three pillow shapes also adds class to your furniture. Rectangular pillows on the bed with two or three round pillows in between them can be a quite beautiful set up when the colors are well mixed and matched.
Colors and patterns
This will be your most difficult choice of selection and if you get it right, you will always feel good about yourself each time you look at this pillow. Take your time and decide the theme you want for each role you want each pillow to play. Each pillow color should be determined by the position it has to play. You should consider a few of these tips when it comes to color or pattern.
Dull colors will serve their purpose even better if they are patterned. The pattern makes the pillow beautiful and easier to see. The pattern should mostly be in a color present in the room.
The decor of the room should be considered as it determines the color, texture and choice of fabric you use. Get throw pillows that go well with the room and avoid using one color too much.
The number of pillows you choose should be the ones you are comfortable with, but avoid instances where you have to throw some pillows on the floor for your comfort. One pillow is enough for one chair and a couch should do with a maximum of four.
Choosing throw pillows should no longer overwhelm you. Get out there and pick out the best set for a better looking home. Here are is more for Accent Throw Pillows for Decorative.
