A good soft and fluffy pillow is always nice to sleep on. Like those pillows that they have at those expensive hotels...so very nice and fluffy. I’ve been such a fan of nice fluffy pillows ever since my parents taught me how to fluff up my pillow before I go to bed. It somehow makes the sleeping experience much more comfy and cozy... and the sleep feels much better too. Until today, I’m convinced it’s because of the pillow. Are you one who likes to have fluffy pillows? Or are you the type that can simply lie down on your bed regardless how your pillow is?

Absolutely. Feather pillows eventually bunch up and polyester fill seems to flatten. Without fluffing, my neck seems to be at an odd angle, I guess my head is not sinking into the pillow and my neck is not getting support. Polyester is the hardest to fluff as you have to beat it in from the sides and top/bottom. I also wash my pillows occasionally too, even the feather pillows. Apparently you are supposed to throw them away after two years because of dust mite infestation.

oh yes...absolutely correct! without putting it too eloquently, dust mites would totally take over the insides of a feather stuffed pillow in about two years.. and we wouldn't want to have a pillow like that, especially if we have allergies and stuff. we need to take care of our fluffy pillows, and the cozy fluffy pillows will take care of us...well, something like that

I never fluffed any pillow. I don't like fluffy pillows. Mine should be as flat as i can get it. I think i am a jump the pillow flat kind of person. Not one word out of you. TATA.

I have nothing to do with the pillows---i can sleep comfortably irrespective of them being hard like stones and soft like do not ask me lol i would go for soft ones as they keep you at ease all night

so you were the one who stole those fluffy pillows from my eleven-star hotel how could you do that---you just managed to tuck it away under your shirt i thought you had a swollen belly coz of eating too much but never thought you would steal them
• Malaysia

well...it was an eleven star hotel.. i assumed that you had so many of those pillows and i could 'borrow' one for a bit i can hand it back to you tomorrow...but you may need to wash it a bit before using it

I'm quite choosy on the kind of pillows I sleep on. I believe they make my sleep and thus my day or otherwise. And I hate waking up with neck aches and the like. Mine would be moderately hard, cooling and slightly high for a side-sleeper like me.
• Malaysia

ooo....morning neck aches i hate those too i'm kind of an all-over sleeper. i sleep all over the bed a nice fluffy pillow is a must for me to have..

I always have a nice dream, as far as I have a pillow. But I'm really interested in how to make my pillow fluffy as ur mom taught ya
• Malaysia
17 Jul 10
hiya bughost what i do is.. i take the pillow in both hands, hold it lengthwise (on the longer side of the pillow, and grab both sides with both hands). then just act as if you're clapping your hands while your pillow is in between them. do it a couple of times and the pillow will be all nice and fluffy. straighten out the pillow casing and pat out the lumpy bits. lay your head on it and be prepared for one of the most cozy-est experiences that man has had the pleasure of enjoying..

Bro, I like those soft but not fluffy type of contouring pillows..those that support the next and head delicately, that sort of thing.. I don't like hard pillows, they make my neck stiff.. mine must be those support pillow types, LOL.. I do fluff up my pillows though.. good method that your parents taught..
• Malaysia
17 Jul 10
yeah...i would like to try those kind of pillows out, but they do seem a tad out of my price range. i've seen some cool pillows also that says the have 'space age' technology to help me sleep better at night... i wonder how would that work

I always have to fluff my pillow up every night before I go to bed, and if I get up during the night for any reason I fluff it again before I lay back down. My husband just jumps in bed and lies down, half the time he ends up not even on his pillow by the middle of the night, I don't know how he sleeps like that!

I like pillows but I dont like the fluffy ones. I like the soft and hard one. Not that you're like lying on rocks but something hard and not as fluffy as cotton candy. If I sleep on a pillow like that, i would feel like I cant breath at all.
• Malaysia

hiya p3ks yup...we all have our own choices in pillows. i do have a couple of friends who feel the same about pillows that are too fluffy... well, the important thing for all of us is that good night's sleep that we all need

Hi, mario_stevens. No, I am not really a pillow fluffer. I usually will just buy a pillow that is firm and fluffy. That way, I won't have to stay fluffing it to my liking.
• Malaysia
18 Jul 10
hi cream i used to get those sort of pillows...but then all the fluffyness just ran out on me. i had to resort to some 'manual' fluffing to maintain that fluffy pillow of mine

Hi mario! I've never had a fluffy pillow that I didn't sink into an I hate those feathery ones because they poke you in the face and that hurts! I have 3 broke azz pillows now that need to get thrown out and replaced! In fact the cheap azz bf/roomy was asking about pillows last night and I told him to go by his own! I have two brand new ones waiting for me in the corner for when I'm ready to break them in!
• Malaysia
17 Jul 10
hiya Opal.. you broke your pillow? that's one hard sleeping experience there just kidding dear...hehe.. i'm just addicted to the comfortableness that a fluffy pillow gives me at night. it really helps me get some good sleep. but then, we all have our own special ways now don't we.. hehe..

i like all of those pillows... and i've even experienced being a 'boyfriend pillow' myself on more than a few occasions

I like my pillows fluffy & you cannot beat feather pillows for that all others seem to go flat & hard.
• Malaysia
17 Jul 10
hi jennywren yup.. i like them fluffy too and i do make sure not to beat them up too hard. i wouldn't want to whack all the fluff out of my pillows too soon

I like to fluff my already fluffy pillow so that it becomes fluffier and fluffiest..lol. When I was a kid, I could never have a sound sleep if I wouldn't have 2 or more fluffy pillows - one for the head, two for the sides, and one under my feet. As I grew up, the number of fluffy pillows kept on decreasing as the number of person sleeping kept on increasing haha..well, only one person added. He is more of like a pillow fluffer than I am. When I have allergies, I really make sure it's fluffed first just to make me feel comfortable even with the agonizing itch or sore that I feel in the nose. When it is just a normal day, I can even sleep without a pillow under my head. =)

Well this may sound strange but I don't like fluffy pillows. I prefer to get a bunch of dense, flat, hard pillows and stack them.
• Malaysia
17 Jul 10
hi kolsti no, i don't think it sounds strange to me. i have heard of some of my friends who do the same with their pillows.. i guess we all have our own 'comfy' way of resting our heads at night
• United States
15 Jul 10
I'm a pillow stacker, if a pillow is too flat instead of trying to fluff it I just grap another pillow and stack until its juusst right. :)

my pillow is foam so its really not fluffable, but i do mush it so it is at least a little puffy every night.
• Malaysia
15 Jul 10
ever since i invested in some nice big fluffy pillows all those years ago, the nights have always been comfy and i haven't used a foam pillow since. but if i had to use one, i might just mush it up a bit too.. nothing beats a nice, soft and puffy one for me

I love soft, fluffy pillows! Not the wimpy kinds though, the kind that you sink into, but it does fully support your head and neck. Too bad my current pillow is only getting flatter every night, boo. I want to invest in a nice, fluffy down pillow, but I have to make sure that they were made in a humane way!
• Malaysia
15 Jul 10
yeah..! fluffy pillows rule! i've got a nice pillow stuffed with artificial 'guilt-free' feathers it is soooo darn comfy..

My hubby can be like that. He is particular about his pillows. But me - nahhhh. I can sleep on a rock if I had to. I do like rather flat pillows - not the fat ones because they sort of hurt my neck when I sleep. But mostly, if I am tired, I can sleep anywhere and it doesn't matter where I'm sleeping. Once before we were married, we were "cheap" and slept in the car when we went on vacation. I had no problem sleeping, but hubby didn't enjoy his non-sleep at all - hee hee.
