Stomach, back or side sleeper?
During sleep we usually take up different positions depending on the stage of sleep. Nevertheless, people can be roughly divided into stomach, back or side sleepers depending on their sleeping position.
Pillow support levels
The height of the pillow is essential in order to obtain a relaxed position of the head and neck. The head is relaxed when there is no "kink in the neck". This means that the head must lie in the extension line of the spine.
In the lateral position, the space between the shoulders and the head must be filled so that the head does not bend downwards. In a dorsal position, the pillow must not be too high. And a prone position does not allow for high and firm pillows, as this can lead to massive tension in the neck.
Down pillow, feather pillow or feather/down pillow?
If the content of the pillow is only made of feathers, it is called a feather pillow; if there is only down in the pillow, it is called a down pillow. If there are mixed fillings, it is a feather/down pillow. ^
