Oh!You use it for every seasons?Cotton pillows lose their shape soon.How often do you change your pillows or do you stuff them periodically to get the required shape?

I use pillow made from Cotton Sponge. This is the only thing which we are using for making pillow for a long time now. Although my mum uses old clothes also to make pillows but I do'nt like those as they are not as smooth and soft as cotton pillow. So, what is your choice of making a pillow? You didn't share your choice?

For me it is artificial nylon filled pillow for winter and rainy season and cotton filled for the rest of the seasons.Cheers!

Is there any significance of using different pillow for different seasons or it is just the way you use it?

A pillow with artificial nylon is warm and it suits winter season whereas cotton stuffed pillow is good for summer as it absorbs heat.Cheers!

My pillow is made up of goose feathers....I chose it because it suits me..soft and nice and comfortable. I cannot sleep on hard pillows. They will give me headache and stiff neck after I wake up

Do you make it of your own or buy it from the stores?Are they costly to get from stores?How long such pillows retain their shape and softness?Are they worth the money spent on them?

I used to have cotton pillows when I was a kid, I used it when I was doing my studies too. When I got a job, I shfited to a city and continued using the same kind of cotton pillows provided by my hostel. You can't except something great from hostels. When I was married and shifted to my husband's house, I started using sponge or foarm pillows. My husband likes them. He is very particular that the pillow should be good, otherwise he won't be able to sleep properly. I won't care much about pillows. But, I would prefer to have the same pillows with cotton inside, if I get a choice.

Yes!Cotton pillows are best suited for our Indian climate.We are living in a hot country and so cotton pillows are used widely.Sponge or foam pillows can be used in cold weather days and in a/c rooms.Still cotton pillows are natural and so itr can't be ruled out simply for convenience.The negative point is it loses its shape soon unlike artificial stuffed pillows.Cheers!

previously in my small age,in our house we have cotton pillows only and they stage for long time than others .in my parents house,once one person made pillows by hand that stayed for more days .may be for 20 years they stayed i think. now a days as i am in other country we get here nylon or spong stuffed material in pillows i think. so we have to use that only here .they will not stay for long time. before two years we bought them,but they are not good now ,as they became thin now. i think cotton is best.

Even cotton pillows will lose their shape in few months.I really wonder those hand made ones which lasted for 20 years.Do you really mean it?What stuff they are made of?Did you take care to put them under the sun periodically to maintain them hygenic?About the nylon stuffed pillows they are not good for the hot climate countries.Cheers!

My pillows are all made up of cotton. don't like pillows that are made up of silk. I like cottons because it is so fresh and the comfort of your pillow affects your sleeping a lot. That is why it is important to select you best pillows for sleeping so that you can get a good night sleep or just the sleep that you needed.

Cotton pillows are natural and so they are widely used.It is also comfortable but it soon lose its shape and we have to change it now and then.Yes!We have to select the right pillow to lead us into good sleep.Once we get into sleep,pillows are not noted.Cheers!

all of my pillows are made of cotton, i like to sleep in it because it's soft. i don't like pillows that are made of sponge sheet because you cannot fold it and it is sometimes hard . i also like bird's feather, but i know it's more expensive but you can guarantee it's softness.

What is the need to fold your pillows?Sponge pillows are nice to sleep on in the cold weather days.About the pillows made of bird's feathers,we can make it easily if we can collect them free of cost.Cheers!

It's like a glistening stuffing that seems to bounce when pressed! The problem with it is that it separates into separate clusters after some time.

Glistening stuffing!I haven't heard of it before.But from what you said,I think it will be more joyful sleeping experience with that pillow.Kids will love it more.Am I right?Cheers!

That is the problem with artificial ones.they are too good to use for their softness and at the same time,the heat radiated from them is intolerable.They are suited for only air conditioned rooms.Cheers!

I prefer cotton-filled pillows. I love a soft pillow and I hate pillows with cloth fillings. I remember when I was in my father's province the pillow they use there is made of cloth fillings so it is very hard and heavy. I do not want a rough and hard pillow because I can't sleep comfortable. I would rather sleep in a blanket without pillow at least I will feel comfortable because it is soft that to use a hard pillow that will just give me an ache in the neck.

It is a way to live frugal,using worn out clothes and like that to fill in a pillow.We use worn out sarees to make beds.They are easy to handle and even to clean.But I haven't used a pillow like that.Sure,it won't have any softness and as you said,it is better to sleep without pillow in that case.Cheers!
