When it comes to pillows and mattress protectors, there’s more to it than you’d expect. Don’t worry, though—we’ll tell you exactly what you need to know.
Pillows are essential for support, whether with a backrest pillow, lumbar pillow, neck support pillow, or a bed pillow. But when supporting your sleep, you need the best pillow that’ll leave you dreaming through the night.
No matter if you’re a back, stomach, or side sleeper, choosing the right pillow for your sleep is key. The "right" pillow keeps your head, neck, and spine in neutral alignment while in your favored sleeping position and supports the curvature of your spine.
If your sleeping position changes while you sleep, choose the pillow firmness based on the position you fall asleep in. Please note when searching for your bedding: pillows that are too soft will gradually take your spine out of neutral alignment as your head sinks in.
Once you’ve figured out the bed pillow type you need, it’s time to match the pillow size to your mattress.
With your bedding essentials figured out, it’s time to protect your mattress investment. Mattress protectors come in three basic styles: encasements, fitted sheets, and elastic straps.
Mattress encasements cover the whole mattress with zipper closures on the sides to protect against bed bugs, allergens, etc. Look for micro-tooth or small zippers to keep those critters away from your sleep!
Fitted sheet mattress protectors fit just like your standard fitted bed sheets with elastic on the corners and full “skirts” on the sides. These help protect against normal wear and tear, and are waterproofed against spills, stains, and incontinence.
Elastic strap mattress protectors are similar to the fitted sheet style protectors, except these have elastic straps on the corners and only cover the top mattress surface.
And if you’re looking for extra comfort and protection against dirt, stains, sweat, dust mites and spills, consider adding a mattress pad to your bedding ensemble.
