Buying Guide: Why Invest in a Memory Pillow
La qualité du sommeil dépend de nombreux facteurs. Le stress, une cure médicamenteuse, l’alimentation : autant d’éléments qui influent directement sur le cerveau. L’endormissement peut aussi être influencé par la qualité de sa literie, en particulier celui de l’oreiller. Certaines personnes vont jusqu’à souffrir de ronflement intempestif et gêner les autres dormeurs. Pour y remédier, il existe une solution : l’oreiller mémoire de forme. Egalement appelé « oreiller ergonomique », celui-ci épouse parfaitement toutes les morphologies, aussi bien au niveau de la nuque que de la tête du dormeur. Il est donc inutile de préciser combien ce modèle d’oreiller offre un confort optimal pour améliorer significativement la qualité du sommeil. Pour un sommeil réparateur digne de ce nom, on a le choix entre diverses formes de coussin confort. La forme carrée ou rectangulaire est dite classique. On retrouve à ce titre des paires d’oreiller en mousse à mémoire de forme ou en latex naturel. Un autre type de coussins de relaxation est également disponible. Il s’agit de l’oreiller cervical en forme de vague. Celui-ci se caractérise par dénivellation de l’épaisseur du coussin afin de combler le creux de la nuque. C’est le modèle recommandé pour un bon maintien au niveau des cervicales. On le conseille également aux personnes souffrant régulièrement de migraines au réveil. L’oreille en vague est aussi prisée des personnes sujettes au mal de dos et aux douleurs cervicales. Le choix se portera in fine sur les habitudes de chaque dormeur.
What are the benefits of sleeping with an ergonomic pillow
For many reasons, we recommend the ergonomic pillow rather than the classic pillow. Firstly, it is suitable for everyone, especially the elderly with shoulder pain or back or neck pain. It is also called an anatomical pillow knowing that it has multiple qualities. It helps to maintain a natural alignment of the spine and the head. As it is ergonomic, it adapts to the shape of the sleeper's head and supports the cervical area. By doing so, the pillow relaxes the muscles of the shoulders and neck, and relieves stiffness in the back and muscles.
What are the criteria to consider when buying the pillow
To choose the right pillow, we will therefore favor the shape memory one. However, one especially takes into account one's own body type and the positions one adopts during sleep before purchasing the appropriate model.
First, we choose according to the position we adopt when we take a seat. This will allow you to quickly find sleep and sleep better. Indeed, sleeping on your stomach, on your back or on your side are different. The comfort pillow needs will therefore be different. In any case, the ideal cushion should be able to keep the head, neck and spine always aligned.
Second, the ear will provide a certain level of support depending on the amount of support. However, support is obtained depending on the position of the sleeper. We will opt for a shape with rounded sides and a hollow center. These are the ergonomic models.
Third, the height of the comfort cushion is also important. This parameter will be determined according to the position adopted while sleeping. Finally, regarding weight, you should know that the heavier the pillow, the firmer it will be.
What degree of pillow support to choose
Firm, medium or flexible: you will also have to choose your pillow according to the desired support. The memory foam pillow is made from thermosensitive viscoelastic foam. This means that the foam reacts under body heat. This is the reason why it follows the morphology of its user. The cushion keeps the cervical trace of the sleeper, regardless of the position that the latter adopts. So we say goodbye to back pain.
Regarding more specifically support, you should know that this factor is decisive as the choice of a relaxation pillow is a personal choice. Soft or supple comfort offers less support. On the other hand, the cushion is much more cozy. It is recommended for people who lie on their stomachs. The medium level is even more flexible. It is recommended for those who sleep on their back or on their side. Finally, in terms of firm support, this is also ideal for anyone who prefers to sleep on their back or side.
You shouldn't confuse ear thickness with firmness. The firmness comes from the filling. A sufficiently dense mouse pillow will be firm. In addition, latex offers better flexibility compared to memory foam. Goose-down pillows are soft when new, but firm up over time.
Which model of ergonomic pillow to buy and at what price
Size, shape and thickness play a big part in choosing a pillow.
The choice of shape and size
The square shaped cushions measuring 65x65cm or 60x60cm are the most sold. Their price fluctuates between 16 and 36 euros. They are also appreciated for the cervical. But the ideal is the rectangular pillow available in 50X70 cm and 40 × 60 cm. This is the right tool for keeping your shoulders on the box spring mattress. You can also find a complete bedding set with anti dust mite pillowcase, mattress protector and washable hypoallergenic sheet.
The importance of thickness
Regarding the thickness of the pillow, it will be taken into account depending on the body of the user, so that it is adaptable in all positions.
Sleepers with narrow shoulders will prefer thinner pillows that are 8-9 cm thick. If they have broad shoulders, it is better to opt for a thickness of 12 to 13 cm.
