6 Tips for Choosing the Best Pillow

For years we've been advocating the importance of a proper pillow. How sleeping on the right surface can help improve health, as well as your daily aches in pains. And in many cases, eliminating them all together. Understanding the importance of the "right" pillow is readily understood by many, actually finding what works, however, can become a more daunting task.

How do you find the best pillow to meet your individual needs? And what is the best way to do so?

6. Talk to a Pro

Whether you choose to speak with your doctor or a Contour sales rep, find someone who knows sleeping pillows. It's a step that allows you to gain accurate information and to ensure you're making an informed decision. 

5. Research

See what others have posted online – in comments as well as article reviews. This is a free way to see how others were hurting, and what steps allowed them to feel better. Compare to your own pains and contrast for a customized experience.

4. Test Out Different Styles

If you haven't used a pillow feather, consider giving that model a shot. Or opt for memory foam, hypoallergenic materials, etc. It may just be the material you've been looking for.

3. Read Reviews

You might learn something you didn't consider. Or know how to better ask questions that relate to your needs.

2. Try Additional Curing Methods

A pillow can't solve all your problems. Consider branching out into alternative steps for curing aches and pains. Those methods, along with a more supportive pillow, will provide better results.

1. Look into Contour's Return Policies

Many favorite Contour Living products come with a 30-day return guarantee. This means you can test out a new model, without feeling stuck to the idea. This is especially good for looking for a new type of pillow and finding out which methods help cure the most amount of pain.
