Imag­ine: you lie down on a pil­low, and it instant­ly adjusts to each of your ver­te­brae. Due to the same pres­sure at the points of con­tact of the head with the pil­low, the ves­sels are not pinched, the neck does not become numb, the body sends a sig­nal to the brain that every­thing is in order and there is no ten­sion any­where. The brain com­mands: “Relieve ten­sion!“Wak­ing up in the morn­ing, you are ready to con­quer the world and close the next dead­lines, because the body has relaxed, the sleep was deep and you have had a good rest. Do you want the same? Every­thing is real with the right ortho­pe­dic pil­low. Or with a mem­o­ry foam pil­low. There are 5 main rules for choos­ing a mem­o­ry foam pil­low that is com­fort­able for you. We tell.

The form

If you sleep on your side, then a rec­tan­gu­lar pil­low with a notch under the shoul­der is suit­able for you. For sleep­ing on your back, it is best to choose with a roll under the neck or with a recess for the head. For those who sleep on their stom­achs bet­ter pay atten­tion to the clas­sic flat rec­tan­gu­lar pil­lows.

The size

In any posi­tion dur­ing sleep, your head should not be either low­ered or raised. For those who sleep on their backs, the height of the pil­low is 6–11 cm. For those who sleep on their sides, it is bet­ter to choose a mod­el with a height of 9–13 cm. For women, a height of 10 to 14 cm is usu­al­ly suit­able, for men — 12 to 16 cm.

Special Needs

Osteo­chon­dro­sis, apnea syn­drome (in oth­er words, snor­ing) and oth­er health nuances that are impor­tant to con­sid­er when choos­ing a pil­low. In case of prob­lems with the neck, it is bet­ter to choose pil­lows with sup­port rollers, which will unload the cer­vi­cal spine dur­ing sleep. A spe­cial anti-snor­ing pil­low has an ele­va­tion in the cen­ter, the head does not fall back, which means there is less chance of snor­ing at night.


The degree of rigid­i­ty is also cho­sen depend­ing on the sleep­ing pos­ture. It is com­fort­able to lie on your back on a hard­er pil­low, and on your stom­ach — on a soft one. If you sleep the same amount of time on your back and on your stom­ach, choose a medi­um firm­ness. She is the most ver­sa­tile. But rec­om­men­da­tions rec­om­men­da­tions, most impor­tant­ly, your per­son­al feel­ings. What do you per­son­al­ly like thick­er pil­lows? Or vice ver­sa soft and fluffy.

Case material

Ortho­pe­dic pil­lows usu­al­ly have remov­able cov­ers made of knitwear, which can be eas­i­ly machine washed under gen­tle con­di­tions. Espe­cial­ly for the sum­mer sea­son there are cov­ers with a cool­ing effect. This is a spe­cial jer­sey that stays cool even in the hottest weath­er. “Cool­ing” knitwear was devel­oped in Italy, where they def­i­nite­ly know a lot about the cool­ness of a sum­mer night.

How to choose is understandable. What if I order a pillow and it doesn’t fit?

If sud­den­ly you doubt, we still offer to order a pil­low accord­ing to all the above cri­te­ria. Take it home from the point of issue, and with­out remov­ing the orig­i­nal pack­ag­ing, test it for 1.5 — 2 hours. Assume your nor­mal sleep­ing posi­tions, lis­ten to your body. So you can def­i­nite­ly meet the pil­low of your dreams. Qual­i­ty sleep for you and your body.
