A good pillow is the first guarantee to get a restful rest. Do you know how to choose the best pillow? Next we will give you the keys to help you in your choice.
To achieve a good rest it is necessary that the head, neck and spine are aligned.The main purpose of a good pillow is to contribute to an adequate posture of the spine, so that the muscles relax and a good rest is achieved.
To choose the ideal pillow you have to take into account three factors: first is the primary position when sleeping. The next is the level of support provided by the pillow on the head and neck and, finally, the type and material used to fill it.
Purpose Of A Pillow
With its use, we seek to obtain:
Comfort:The more comfortable you feel in bed the easier it is to fall asleep.
Correct sleeping posture:A good pillow supports the neck and head and places them in the correct posture to prevent pain in the neck, back, head and shoulders.
The Perfect Pillow Size
The width of our pillow should exceed that of the shoulders. In contrast, the height or thickness varies according to the posture of the sleeper.
A low pillow (10 cm): suitable for people who sleep on their stomachs, as well as for young children.
A medium pillow (12-13 cm): ideal for those who sleep on their back. It should be lower than the shoulders and have an average hardness.
A medium-high pillow (15 cm): it is recommended for people sleeping sideways, to keep the head and neck aligned with the spine.
The Best Pillow According To Material
The most recommended materials for a pillow are:
Fiber: fiber pillows have a pleasant comfort and a great capacity of recovery. They are breathable and fresh, since they allow the circulation of the air by the interior, favoring the absorption of the humidity. They are completely washable, thus favoring a greater hygiene at rest. Still, they are only recommended for people who sleep on their stomachs and do not suffer any type of ailment in neck or back.
Among the favorites by our users we highlight the Mash Fibra de Kol, medium height and 100% hypoallergenic fiber padding, with a very soft touch and designed for people who sleep both side and back.
We also have among the most sold with the Allerban Mash Feather pillow , medium firmness and height, filled with silicone hollow fiber and cotton fabric.
Viscoelastic: viscoelastic pillows have excellent adaptive and thermosensitive properties, since they adapt perfectly to the shape of the head, providing a greater support and favoring a complete cervical rest.
In addition to offering a perfect rest, the viscoelastic pillows are ideal for people suffering from cervical and back pain, for their perfect adaptability, firmness and pressure. There are also viscoelastic pillows designed to treat cervical problems.
In our online shop the most sold viscoelastic pillows are:
Moshy Visco Form
This pillow provides a fresh and hygienic break, thanks to its great perspiration. It is designed with small intelligent perforations and allows the passage of air, facilitating a greater ventilation of its core. It has three differentiated zones of density this allows a better adaptation of the vertebrae. This is the ideal pillowfor people looking for a medium firmness.
Mash Visco Acticarbón
This pillow has 100% viscoelastic core and active carbon, which prevents the accumulation of odors and humidity, providing a healthier and more hygienic break. It is very adaptable and flexible for a longer lasting break.
Latex:soft texture and pleasant, provide a great feeling of comfort. Its internal open cell structure allows for greater ventilation, hygiene and durability.
The pillows with memory system, like the visco form of moshy , are the most recommended because they adapt totally to each person. They are also perfect for sleepers who move a lot at night.
Choosing the best pillow
The sleeping posture
The first thing to keep in mind when choosing our ideal pillow is the position we adopt to sleep:
In this case, it is recommended that the pillow be soft and thin because those that are too hard make breathing difficult. It must allow the head to be aligned with the body. Usually people adopting this pose usually embrace the pillow or pick it up, which is why a feather or synthetic fibers is ideal to be able to adapt the filling and place it where it is needed.
Upside down A pillow with an intermediate thickness and firmness is the most appropriate, since the part of the head that rests is the neck and the neck need to rest without problems.
On the side
If we choose a very hard pillow we will be forcing the neck and we will make it excessively lifted. If it is too soft the neck will “fall” and the alignment of the recommended column will not be reached. Therefore, an intermediate just like the pillows on businessjust is correct. On the contrary, if you sleep on your side the pillow should be thick enough so that the neck does not rest on the shoulder, causing ailments and discomfort, and do so on the pillow. In this case the purpose of the pillow is to get the neck to stay on the axis of the column.
How often do I need a new pillow?
With the passage of time the pillows are losing their properties, becoming detrimental to rest, as they do not keep the head comfortable or allow adequate rest. The best thing is to replace it when we notice that it is no longer comfortable. Their average life is 2 to 7 years depending on the quality of the same and the material with which they are manufactured.
Cervical pillows can help keep the spine in good condition or correct the posture of it.Sleeping with proper alignment helps prevent headaches, backaches and neck pain.
Cervical instability and pain increase when lying down we do not hold it properly. The use of cervical pillows can control and prevent neck pain. These provide relief as they keep the neck aligned with the head while sleeping. Therefore , a correct cervical pillow reduces the pressure exerted on the neck, relieving pain.
They were created to improve the posture while we are asleep, helping to improve the sleep because they contribute to the relief of the stiffness between the neck and the shoulders. The main difference between these pillows and regular pillows is that the cervical pillows support the spine even if it is face up or sideways.
The best pillow for us will provide support and make us feel comfortable while we sleep.
We must try several before choosing one, and finally with the one that we feel more comfort in the neck will be indicated.
In our online store you can find a wide catalog of cervical pillows, among which we highlight the Mash Visco 3D .
The Visco 3D pillow relieves cervical pressure points, giving you a healthier break.Its memory effect provides the neck and head with a pleasant feeling of weightlessness that will enhance your rest by reducing nighttime movements.
Pillows suitable for children
Depending on the age and needs of the child, we will choose the shape, size and thickness of your pillow. These are smaller and smaller than adult pillows.
We must bear in mind that babies do not need it, or in any case it should be a very small one. When they are more than two years old, we can start with those that are not too tall or too big. We will look for those that help children keep their heads slightly higher at bedtime.
Another aspect that we must consider beyond the comfort of a good pillow is that it is firm, to avoid possible discomfort upon awakening. As they grow, we must vary the size and thickness of it.
As for the interior, we must pay attention to its composition, since the filling must be cotton or fiber to prevent the child from sinking.
