Are You Familiar with the Different Types of Pillow?

People commonly have two to four types of a pillow in their homes because various pillows offer different types of comfort. Read away and learn more about your best friends for a good night sleep.


  1. Body Pillow

Considered as the longest type of pillow, a body pillow is usually 54-inch long. It is one of the most widely bought pillows in Dubai. People usually place body pillows in between their legs for a more relaxing sleep or basically just to hug something at night. It also acts as a support for the legs and hips. This type of pillow is the best bud of many pregnant women.


  1. Feather Pillow

If you’re up for an amazingly soft, comfortable yet long lasting pillow, opt for a feather pillow. The best thing about it is it’s made of organic materials. Just make sure to choose a high-quality product which contains small and curled feathers for durability reasons.


  1. Wedge Pillow

Triangular in shape, this type of pillow contains polyester fiber fill, foam, and/or a mix of the two. It is ideal for those who regularly sit on their beds while reading or working. Placing your legs on a wedge pillow can also help prevent the formation of varicose veins and other leg discomforts.


  1. Neck Pillow

Often seen on people who sleep in a vehicle, a neck pillow is made to prevent experiencing “stiff neck” while sleeping. It acts as a support to the spine to prevent any form of discomfort.


  1. Memory Foam Pillow

Considered as one of the favorites of moms, a memory foam pillow adjusts to the shape of the head of the sleeper. Memory foam pillows come in various shapes and sizes. They return to their original shape regardless of the position of the sleeper. This is highly beneficial for proper posture, and to keep your neck, head, and shoulders relaxed even while sleeping.


  1. Down Pillow

This type of pillow is considered as the softest and most luxurious kind of pillow.  A down pillow is made of the undercoat of a bird – imagine a feather minus the quill! It’s comfortable and relaxing. However, if you are after body support, this type of pillow is not for you.
