Please tell me what kind of a pillow you sleep with, and why you chose it. I will only be reading and rating each reply. Thank you.

I notice you are using some of my questions that I already discuss, I like a long pillow, down-feathered pillows are thebest.

I use soft foam-filled pillows. I have a long body-shaped down pillow for cuddling with, but I like a firmer pillow to support my head and neck when I sleep or read in bed. I agree that a good pillow as well as a decent mattress are essential to getting a good nights' sleep.

I have two pillows. I recently purchase them at Walmart in a 2 pack for $10. They are alternative downfill with 500 thread count zip off pillowcases. I love them so far, we will see how they stand up.

I like to use a very soft pillow and with that the area of the same should be really big . The pillow cover should be of white or cream colour .Hey by the way how many pepole are affected by the colour of the pillow covers . For me it is the topmost priority .

I use a normal cotton pillow - I have tried many but none really cuts - not even the cotton or the exotic foam or goose feather one - but I have no choice but to use one. There was a period when I went without pillows but it didn't work too. One thing to note about pillows though - fold it into halves and if it doesn't bounce back, it's time to change it.

I use a swedish down filled pillow to sleep on. It is soft and contours to provide me with neck and upper spine support, particularly for the braxial plexus. But to prop myself in bed, I use Dunlopillo, foam pillows and bolsters that provides me with adequate support if I am reading or using my laptop in bed. It is equally important as your pillow to consider the kind of mattress you use. One good one without the other, is fundamentally useless. Our body is a superb piece of engineering, which can take a lot of abuse. But long term abuse creates long term problems. So it is important to do the right thing as early as possible. Consult an orthopaedist. sometimes even chiropractors can give you very good advice.

The type of pillow you use can be the deciding factor of how well you sleep. I have used a down-filled pillow for years. I am able to roll it up to support my neck and head. People are often allergic to feathers and should use a cover that is specifically for those with allergies. There are orthopedic pillows that have a dip in the center of the pillow that also allows the head to rest comfortably while supporting the neck. Lack of support to the necks a reason why so many have pain in their neck and spine can result in further problems if not treated.

I always have to use a polifilled pillow because of my allergies. One big allergy I have is feathers.

I use three pillow. Two of them are foam filled and the top one is an ant-histamine fibre filled pillow. I use the anti-histamine pillow because I suffer from respiratory problems.

It's been years since I've been able to fnd a decent pillow that I could sleep on all night without having a neck or headache when I wake up. I used to have a really nice feather pillow that I slept on when I was younger. My grandma gave it to me but that was a really long time ago and like I said I haven't been able to find a really good one since then.

We sleep with regular pillows that I guess are filled with foam. I don't know if we've ever had a feather pillow. Now I did try those form fitting ones if you know what I mean. They basically hold your head and neck in a proper position but I hated it.

I have three pillows that I sleep with. I have on that is full of spongey stuff (it's old) and I hug that one. I have a feather pill and one of those memory foam pillows with the curves that is supposed to support your neck. I only use that one if I am sleeping on my back. If I am sleeping on my side, the feather pillow goes on top.

I sleep with a pillow that shapes to your neck (memory pillow). It was good for a while but now is a little soft and flat. A pity really because it cost $100 a year ago. I also have a cheap $20 one that has lasted me years. Go figure.

There is nothing like a soft downy pillow as far as I am concerned. No feathers though, because they poke you in the cheek. I, well my grandmother made, I helped, the pillows for our beds. What a mess that was. One of those things you learn you wished you never had???!!! Anyway its like sleeping on clouds and they are so awesome to snuggle into. Easy to wash as well. You just have to throw something heavy like a clean shoe in the dryer so the down does not clump.
