Coco-Mat SA: How To Choose The Right Pillow For You

A comfortable pillow can certainly help you relax and enjoy a better night of rest. With so many pillows on the market, how do you decide which is the best fit for you?

What’s the criteria for the selection of the right pillow?

The pillow is the mattress of the head and the neck. The pillows, like the mattresses, must support the neck and the head in such a way that they do not deviate from their natural (correct) position. For example when we lay on our back on a mattress the pillow must support the head and the neck in the position that these have when we stand up.

In order for this to happen the pillow must have the necessary height to fill the gap that exists between the mattress and the curve of the neck. If the pillow is higher, the head will lean forward, resulting in the stretching of the seventh cervical vertebra and gradually generate ache in the area. Prevailing importance in the selection of the pillow is our body type, for example a big male body needs a higher pillow than a smaller female or a child. This is the reason that Coco-mat offers a large variety of pillows not only in the materials used but also in terms of their height. Of course the mattress plays an important role in the support of the neck. For example in a hard and rigid mattress we need a bigger pillow than in an elastic mattress.

When purchasing a new pillow, consider the following:

  • Measure the distance between your ear and outside shoulder. This is often the right height to offer comfort and support to your neck and back.
  • Think about the position in which you prefer to sleep. If you often sleep on your stomach sleepers you may need a really soft pillow. A pillow under your stomach and pelvis may help prevent back pain.
  • If you regularly sleep on your back, a flatter pillow may be the right fit to keep your head and neck in alignment.

Coco-mat SA provides superior pillows with down and wool fillings. Pillows filled with goose or duck downs provide a dreamy sense of softness and create a warm nest for the head. Pure virgin wool fillings can easily relax you with its hypoallergic properties. The choice is yours!
