QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
- What's a good pillow like?
The characteristics of a good pillow are that it keeps the head at the right height, it is flexible and well ventilated. For those who sleep on their stomachs, we usually recommend adjustable padded pillows so that they can customize the height at home that is right for us. After all, when sleeping on your stomach, it is important that our pillows are not too high. Since we also put a strain on our spine in this sleeping position, we also recommend a pillow under the abdomen to relieve the load on our vertebrae. You can read more about this in our article "Low back pain and mattress selection".
For side sleepers, it is important that the arch between the shoulder and the neck is filled with a pillow, thereby relieving the cervical vertebrae at night.

A good charge is ventilating and water repellent, e.g. feather / ball, synthetic ball. The outer layers should be made of moisture-absorbing material such as cotton. Use a densely woven cover, even in several layers. Be careful with washing because of chemical residues! Rinse with a well-dosed detergent and a rich rinse aid is correct.

The pillow needs to be changed more often than other bedding. Therefore, it is recommended to replace it every 2 to a maximum of 3 years.
