Pillows

Among the most appreciated and widely used creations in the history of mankind, the humble sleep pillow certainly ranks in the top ten. Pillows play a hugely important role in getting a peaceful night’s rest, while helping to maintain good posture, spinal and neck alignment and physical well-being.

The first known use of bed pillows has been traced to early Mesopotamian civilizations, who began using them around 7,000 B.C. At the time, pillows were symbols of great influence and wealth, possessed and used only by the very rich. Today, people from all walks of life rest their heads on the best bed pillows as they sleep.

Sit ‘n Sleep offers an extensive line of high quality bed pillows in various types, sizes and textures at prices to fit virtually any budget. From traditional down fillings to latex, gel construction and memory foam pillows, you’ll find a sleep pillow that’s right for your unique sleeping situation, both online and at one of our 39 retail outlets conveniently located throughout Southern California.

Choosing The Right Pillow

Consistently waking up feeling stiff, tired and sore may be due to something as simple as sleeping on the wrong pillow. Just as the right mattress is crucial to getting a restful night’s sleep, choosing the right sleep pillow to compliment your mattress is also an important factor affecting sleep quality. Working together, these two important sleeping components will properly support and align the neck and spine to improve the quality of your night’s rest. Sleeping on the wrong pillow, however, can result in back pain, spinal problems and even headaches.

To help you select the right pillow for bed, sleep experts offer the following guidelines:

  • For those people who sleep on their backs, thin, flat pillows that comfortably support the natural curvature of the neck are recommended. Some back sleepers find that wedge pillows will also work well for them.
  • Contoured pillows or anatomic pillows that firmly support and properly align the neck and back are suggested for people who normally on their sides. Placing a pillow between the legs can also help ensure proper spinal alignment for people who are side sleepers.
  • Sleeping on your stomach requires very little head support, so a thin pillow that prevents the head from being overly elevated is suggested. Some stomach sleepers also place a pillow beneath their stomachs to help provide relief from lower back pain.

Pillow Shopping Tips

A sleep pillow needs to be both comfortable and flexible. There are, however, other factors to consider when choosing a bed pillow.

Allergy sufferers need to be certain that the new pillow is free from substances that trigger allergic reactions. One of Sit ‘n Sleep’s knowledgeable Sleep Consultants will be happy to advise you of the materials used in the various pillow brands and styles. To be on the safe side, consider purchasing a hypoallergenic bed pillow.

For people suffering from sleep apnea, it’s important to select a sleep pillow that encourages side sleeping and lifts the chin to help keep breathing passages open, such as a Primo Distinct Contour Pillow. You might also consider one the contoured Tempur-Pedic pillows available for sale at Sit ‘n Sleep.

People who sleep “hot” and wake in the night perspiring and restless will appreciate a cooling pillow, such as the TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Dual Cooling Pillow.  Another restful sleep pillow to consider is the PureCare Sub-0° Softcell Chill Latex Pillow made with PureCare's exclusive FRÍO® rapid chill cooling fibers.

Back or side sleepers that suffer from back, neck and shoulder pain should consider the ergonomically designed Technogel Sleeping Anatomic Pillow. Another luxury bed pillow in Sit ‘n Sleep’s extensive inventory that offers proper spinal support with the added benefit of contouring, gel cooling comfort is the Technogel Sleeping 2015 Deluxe Thick Pillow.

As when shopping for a mattress, it’s always a good idea to test a pillow before making your final decision. Start by removing the pillow from its plastic wrap to get a true sense of its feel. Also ask a Sleep Consultant if that particular brand and model comes with a comfort guarantee that allows the pillow to be returned within a certain time period if doesn’t live up to your expectations. Since stains automatically void any comfort and warranty guarantees, it’s a good idea to include one of the many Pillow Protectors available at Sit ‘n Sleep along with your pillow purchase.

At Sit ‘n Sleep, we understand the importance of a quality pillow in getting a good night’s rest. Stop by your nearest Sit ‘n Sleep location where one of our knowledgeable Sleep Consultants will be pleased to help you choose the perfect pillow for your particular sleeping needs.
