Finding the right pillow is not always simple task. In the family of ergonomics, first that we have is the classical form (square or rectangular). These models are designed as a mold on which you strap your neck so that it is in the extension of your spine.
There are also more worked versions, with different heights: the cervical pillow. It has a wave shape that allows your pillow to adapt to your way of sleeping. Thanks to this set of heights, you can move from one position to another. On the back, you will rather choose a lower zone while on the side, it is better to favor a higher pillow.
In the same vein, there is also the model with lateral reinforcements. The main goal is to limit as much as possible the movements of your head during the night. Special support is very effective to offer relaxation and maintenance to your neck: one of the key points to sleep well. Are you confused between all these alternatives? There is no wrong option. It all depends on your desires for comfort.
Latex, moss, buckwheat, spelled or synthetic: choose your filler
You have the choice between a memory foam or latex pillow. In the first case, memory foam (viscoelastic) is used. This one acts like a casting shape on which you strap your neck for a personalized support of the vertebrae. For its part, latex has the advantage of being comfortable, wrapping, soft and durable. It is the ideal model for people who tend to perspire.
It has to adapt to your body (neck, head and shoulder) to be effective an ergonomic pillow. In general, recommended height is 4-4.5 inches (from the hollow section).
The green option: you can also choose a buckwheat or millet which suited for good retention. The first has the advantage of being firm and malleable, perfectsuited for good retention. The second has a lighter lining, but an identical support.
