Three Features You Need in Your Next Bed Pillow

A good bed pillow will do more than just look nice when you make up your bed.

Pillows have, for hundreds—if not thousands of years—served as a way to decorate couches, beds, chairs, and more. And they have certainly done (and continue to do) a great job at just that. However, when it comes to bed pillows, they need to not only look great, but also be functional, and in all the right ways if you want a comfortable and healthy night’s sleep. Here are the three things that should matter to you as you shop for your next set of bed pillows.

Adjustable

Some people like a hard pillow, and some like a softer place to rest their head. Other people like a firm pillow, while the persons sleeping next to them might like something fluffy. No matter what your preference is, you need a pillow that works for you. That’s where an adjustable pillow comes in. An adjustable pillow gives you access to the memory foam fill stuffing inside and lets you choose how much filling you want your pillow to have. Not sure? Try out a few different stuffing amounts and see what suits you best.

Mite Resistant

Mites are a major problem that can attack your pillows and turn your dreamy nights into awful nightmares. Pillows are a great place for mites to hide, so when shopping for new bed pillows, look for models that are mite resistant, as well as mold and mildew resistant. None of the above belong in the bedroom.

Regulated Temperature

Being too hot or too cold when you sleep isn’t only something Goldilocks hated—we all do. Waking up in a pile of sweat just gets you started off on the wrong side of the bed. So, look for a bed pillow that will help you regulate your temperature at night. A pillow with a cover that is made of bamboo-derived rayon will help keep things breathable and your temperature at a comfortable level throughout the night. Even better, these covers are machine washable so you can keep them in tip-top shape.
