Common Types of Pillows in Singapore and how they best suit your needs
When it comes to pillows, it is to no surprise that most sleepers often overlook the importance of it and simply opt for generic pillows. While some pillows help to soften the overall sleep experience, others provide the right amount of support designed to get you fully recharged for the next day. The selection of a right pillow is thus important, as it has the ability to align your neck properly to your mattress to achieve the optimum sleep positioning for a good night’s sleep.
1) Down Feather Pillows
Down feather is considered a luxurious and ultra-soft material from the underbellies of either a duck or goose. While the material is hypoallergenic, it is not usually recommended to users who are likely to develop allergic reactions when exposed. Though durable and malleable, down pillows require regular fluffing and have the ability to create a warm, cozy feel, especially on cold nights. Although lots of sleepers prefer down, down pillows aren’t as supportive compared to memory foam or latex.
2) Cotton Pillows
A common filling in the market due to its easy maintenance and affordability, cotton pillows are highly breathable and soft, but do not contour well to the head and neck. The material loses its firmness over time and goes flat, but regular fluffing can help to prolong its’ shelf life. As cotton gets older, it is prone to sweat absorption and stains especially in tropical climate countries like Singapore.
3) Latex Pillows
Another common type of pillow used by many, latex pillows are getting increasingly popular for their soft, supportive, and environmentally friendly properties. This material is however criticized for its lack of breathability over time and is only polyurethane free when it is made up of 100% natural latex extracted from the Hevea-Brasiliensis rubber tree.
