Lumpy Pillow? Why Pillows Are Important for Your Sleep

19 Oct 2019

Have you ever had that feeling that something is not quite right with your pillow? Pillow care is not something that any of us think about, until it becomes a problem. However, along with flatness, lumpiness is a common complaint when a pillow has passed its sell by date. Lumps can occur in duck feather pillows, goose feather pillows and synthetic pillows too. So, what can you do to ensure you are getting the most from your luxury pillows and why is it so important for your sleep?

What you can do to get the most from your bedding pillow

Start building into your everyday routine some good old-fashioned pillow fluffing. In the morning, shake it, flex it and wrestle around with your pillow to get it plumped up and ready for another night's sleep. You can also try putting it outside for a few hours when the weather is warm and sunny, this will get air to it and help kill bacteria that may be lurking in there.

Why do I need to have a luxury pillow?

Pillows are a critical element of our sleeping routines. They help to keep your body aligned while you are lying asleep and with the wrong one, you could wake up with a stiff neck or sore muscles in your back that can stop you from doing some day to day activities. Worst of all, if you've slept awkwardly on a pillow, you will end up with poor quality sleep that will leave you tired the whole day after.

Which pillows are good for posture?

Goose feather and down pillows are the two most popular pillow fillings at DUSK. Duck down pillows and goose down pillows both contain soft and light under plumage and are often considered the highest quality, they are extremely soft and provide that cloud-like effect you may already be familiar with.

What material is best for a pillow?

We would recommend a pillow that is made with a cotton casing, the breathable quality of cotton helps keep you cool and comfortable at night.

As well as picking the right outer fabric for your pillow, don't forget to opt for the right size. At DUSK, we have standard and super king pillows available in our collections. We often hold discounts, including one of our most popular collections, the super king size pillow range. Take a look here.
