Classic Pillows vs Memory Foam Pillows

People who have trouble falling and staying asleep, who experience headaches, neck or back pain, fatigue, or sleep apnea, pregnant women, as well as allergen-sensitive people need a suitable pillow to get a good night’s sleep.

Read on for a basic comparison of classic versus memory foam pillows.

Sleep pillows

Classic pillow
Classic pillows come with many different options nowadays to make them more comfortable and hypoallergenic. For example, a fiberfill classic pillow can provide the utmost comfort as it adjusts to your movements without any of the fill shifting around. Fiberfill also regulates as your body changes temperature, so that you stay cool and dry throughout the night.

Moreover, sleepers who suffer from allergies can choose from a wide range of hypoallergenic pillows, covered either in cotton sateen or in silk. These pillows are breathable and ward off naturally dust mites, mold, mildew and other allergens. However, unlike most foam pillows, classic ones typically retain heat, even though there are newer cool gel models that address this issue.

Memory foam pillows
A memory foam pillow is a useful aid in a range of medical conditions as it supports the body in a comfortable, natural position, and can also be used as a pregnancy pillow since it makes sleeping on one side easier. Memory foam pillows also improve blood flow by keeping your spine aligned during sleep.

They are made from a dense polyurethane material that is sensitive to body heat and thus can easily mold into a supportive shape that is also comfortable. A memory pillow keeps its shape throughout the night, without flattening out, so that you don’t need to wake up again and again to readjust your pillow.

Unlike classic pillows, brand new foam pillows may smell rather unpleasantly, but you can fix this by airing them before use. Moreover, memory foam pillows are firmer than classic pillows, and this may not be to everyone’s liking.
