What’s more important, the pillow or the mattress? Let’s just say that one without the other isn’t going to do you any good. You can’t curl up like a cat on a pillow. You need a mattress for your body. And without a pillow, a comfortable mattress isn’t going to do much for you. Therefore, it can be said that both are necessary in unison for a good night’s sleep.
Does that mean that one isn’t more important than the other? Since a mattress provides more coverage, you might say that the mattress is more important. I want to hear you say that the next time you wake up with a sore neck. Isn’t that the worst? It really stinks when you sleep awkwardly and wake up with a neck that is sore.
It can make you a little stiff for days. You want to be sure that you are getting a good night’s sleep, and that places equal importance on both the mattress and the pillow you choose. Everyone has different preferences when searching for the best mattress set and pillows to buy. What type of mattress do you like? What type of pillow do you like?
I have a history of liking memory foam pillows. However, I’m not so sure about this anymore. You see, I haven’t always used them, but I do like them. And I’ve noticed when I use one consistently, I wake up with a face that feels as though I slept really hard, perhaps too hard. It’s difficult to describe, but my face is all puffy and sometimes allergies are in play. The memory foam pillows are a more recent thing for me in past years anyway, and so I will tell you what my favorite pillow has always been.
My favorite pillow is the feather pillow. They are comfortable, soft, and just the best. Yes, tail feathers can sometimes be found on your bed, but they are easy to clean up. I really like feather pillows, and as for mattresses, well, here is my theory. I would rather buy one of two mattresses. Either I’m going to go cheap and get the coil mattress with the most comfortable top, or I’m going to get a sleep number type mattress with adjustable settings.
I don’t need the mattress to lift up or down. I don’t want to feel like I’m in a hospital. I’ll use pillows to adjust myself. But that is my take on a mattress. Now, one thing about the coil mattresses is there are also hybrid versions available. For example, there are coil mattresses with memory foam toppers. I also like the egg crate foam toppers, don’t you?
There are all different types of ways that you can get your bed organized to your liking. The fact of the matter remains, however, that the pillows you choose and the mattresses you choose are equally important. You need a good mattress and a good pillow, and you also need a solid bed frame as well.
