Are you the type who sleeps with pillows all over the bed? Aside from having clean sheets and comfy duvets, you also need to invest in the right set of pillows. These cuddly buddies come in different shapes and sizes, but what you really need to consider is the filling. Familiarize yourself with the different kinds with our list below:


One of the most popular and budget-friendly options, cotton is very easy to maintain and perfect for those who have asthma and those who are prone to allergic rhinitic since it's made from non-allergenic fiber.  


Feathers are chosen for firmer support. Small feathers are combined with goose down to create the most relaxing filling. If you often have a bout with rhinitis, it's best to choose another type of filling as this type can become a breeding ground for allergens.


Latex completes heavy and fixed pillows that you can use as support while sleeping. It can help relieve stress in the head and neck, however, it can be a bit pricey.


If you're furnishing a halfway home, it's best to go synthetic as it's a bit cheaper compared to the others. These are also the fillings with the shortest life-span so choose it if you're not going to use it often or if you have the budget to replace it from time to time.
