Down and Feather Company releases informative hints and tips for choosing the correct pillow firmness for more comfortable, restful sleep. Sleeping with an incorrect firmness of pillow to support the neck and head is directly linked to back pain, neck pain, and decreased quality of sleep. What defines "incorrect pillow firmness" is largely based on personal preference. However, several factors come into play with regard to selecting the right pillow firmness.

"Most people simply do not sleep on a pillow of the proper firmness," announces David Smith, President and CEO of Down and Feather Company. During sleep, the body needs to recuperate and recover from the physical stress of being alert and awake all day in order to prepare for the physical stress of the next day. Many people wake up in the morning feeling groggy, tired, and even physically drained. The fact is that a comfortable and proper length of sleep can be reached, and many times, the enemy of a restless night's sleep is a subtle foe: an unsupportive pillow.

In order to achieve restful sleep, a pillow needs to be comfortable to the individual user, as well as supportive. The pillow must also be able to change and mold to each new position of the user, as the body changes positions several times during a single night's sleep. A good pillow will be able to shape itself to the contours of the body regardless of the position of the user.
