How to find the right height pillow for you?
Getting the right pillow comes down to height and filling. Since we are all different sleepers, the perfect pillow depends on the person. The general rule goes by height. Anyone with a small frame suits a low-profile pillow and the same goes to medium and tall.
However, it's a little more complicated than choosing by your own height, as the kind of sleeper you are matters just as much. Low-profile pillows suit tummy sleepers, medium-profile pillows suit back sleepers, and high-profile pillows are best for side sleepers.
When it comes to head and neck support, medium to high profile pillows is the best choice. Find a pillow that sits in the crevice between your head and shoulder without altering your head's height.
What pillow filling is best?
For more luxe pillows, latex and wool are your go-tos. Natural latex is breathable and low-allergenic with a bit of bounce back, while wool is soft and a great choice for anyone who prefers natural fibres.
