How to choose the right orthopedic pillow for yourself

Formally, the length of the shoulder, indeed, needs to be considered to correctly lie on the side, but there are some nuances that we have identified over many years of work.  Based on those, we suggest you the new guidelines for choosing an orthopedic pillow. Here they are:

1. Height.

To sleep on your back, you need a low pillow, and to sleep on your side, you need to consider the height and weight of the person.

2. Softness. 

The softness of the pillow also regulates the choice of height: a dense pillow feels higher than a soft one. Therefore, a dense pillow cannot be equal to the length of the shoulder, but a soft one can.

3. Sleeping position.

You need to figure out which position you take first, before you start turning over and making yourself comfortable. The initial position is the main one, and it is worth choosing the height and shape of the orthopedic pillow for this position.

Types of basic sleeping positions and matching pillows:

- on the back (low pillows with bolsters under the neck are suitable: Lady, Contour)

- on the side (high dense pillows Contour, Knobby, Standard are suitable)

- on the stomach (low very soft pillows: Lady, pillow-toy)

- and the so-called 3/4 (three quarters) – a position when you are more often half-turned and lie somewhere between the positions on the side and on the back, periodically turning over fully (pillows with raised corners and a shoulder recess are suitable: Bambi, Durian, Lady)
