Memory Foam Pillow....Could It Be The Answer?

I am somewhat of a poor sleeper, actually although I say that, I can sleep for England when I want to. On trains, comfy sofa's etc....But when it comes to my own bed I often struggle to get comfy and my neck often aches a little on waking. I have tried hard pillows, soft pillows, 1, 2, and sometimes even 3 pillows ( wouldn't recommend the 3 by the way) but just never seem to feel I have found the perfect pillow. Sleep is so important,  so what we sleep on must be just as important. When Bedstar sent me a couple of their memory foam pillows I was very eager to try them out....

Well the models on the packaging certainly look comfy enough. On opening you do get this in my opinion quite strong plastic-y smell, I don't know if this is the packaging or normal for memory foam but after a quick spray of my lavender pillow mist it did seem to get better. The first thing I wanted to do was pretty them up and so popped one of my rosali pillowcases on....that's better.

So, a couple or so night's sleep later what did I think? To be honest I did find the memory foam a little on the hard side for my liking and although I slept well, was aware of it being harder that my normal pillow. I may get used to it of course and I did find it perfect for propping up and having a good read. Quite possibly it is the best pillow I have used for sitting up comfortably in bed. So, all in all quite a nice pillow and as memory foam is quite new to me it has been interesting trying it out and it has certainly got me looking at other memory foam options that are out there. So I shall keep with it and soon maybe all those little aches on waking may be a thing of the past. Or, perhaps I shall wake up to the realisation that those little aches are just me getting dare I say it....getting old ;)

  9. There comes a time in every person's (or couple's) life when they have to break down and get a new mattress. This is especially true for people who have trouble sleeping because of a mattress that sags, peaks, or allows springs to poke through.Joseph Slattery

No-one can tell you what mattress will give you the perfect night's sleeping although several are designed by using materials or building techniques created to reduce common sleep issues but you can comprehend the variations in the types of materials and design that can help make picking a new king mattress simpler.

  11. Most people buy memory foam toppers as opposed to full memory foam mattresses because they are a lot less expensive. However, just because the price is lower doesn't mean they are for everybody. Learn the important differences so you can make a smart choice as to whether or not a full mattress, topper, or neither is right for you.
