If you look on the internet about which pillows to buy you will find the selection is enormous. There are pillows that give your neck traction, duck feathers, goose feathers, molded cervical pillows, memory foam, tempur, even the pillows they use on the space shuttle! So here is a study from the site wddty.com that was done with sufferers of neck pain who tested several different pillows and found out which were the best. So no need to lose any more sleep over which pillow to buy, its all here.
Poor packaging lets this pillow down. Our readers wanted to know more about the materials and what to expect. But on the plus side, this pillow comes with a useful removable cover that our entire panel liked. Although first impressions were not good, 75 per cent of the panel found this a comfortable pillow – the highest approval rating in our test; 75 per cent also felt the benefits of good support, leading to less neck ache on waking and throughout the day. The ventilated design of the pillow did not feel as hot during sleep as the Tempur or Putnam ’s offerings.
Manufacturer: Putnam’s Pillows
A larger version of the Royal, not all our panel liked this one. Again, there was a negative smell factor with this pillow and, perhaps because of its large size, only 62.5 per cent of our users found it beneficial. The testers who appreciated it the most seemed to be those with broader shoulders. As one panel member commented, ””One size will not fit all!””
Original Neck Pillow
Clever marketing has made this the chic support pillow to own, but testing in the ‘real world’ does not support the idea of this as a superior pillow. Given its excellent first impression, for many of our panel, it failed to live up to its promise.
In terms of comfort, this medium-sized pillow was little different – at first. But while some, like Putnam ’s Royal and Kingsize, became more comfortable with use, several found that this pillow became less comfortable over time. Half our panel claimed it made their neck and back aches worse. On the plus side, it comes with a removable washable cover.
But the thing is this!
