What is the Right Pillow Profile for me?

Consider a pillow’s profile and the best one to suit your specific preferences and needs. Profile refers to the height of the pillow and determines how your head and neck will be positioned in comparison to your spine. Your body shape also determines the best profile for you, i.e. the smaller the frame, the lower the profile and vice versa.

Pillow Care and Maintenance

The care and maintenance that a pillow requires should also be a consideration when shopping for the right one for you. Look for machine washable covers and durable materials to save money and time in the long-term. Covers should be washed monthly and the pillow itself at least yearly. Some fabrics are better at wicking moisture and preventing odours than others, which should also be a consideration when shopping. Happy shopping and sweet dreams!
