How to Choose the Right Pillow & Mattress

We spend on an average of 6-8 hours sleeping every day.  

However, quite often, people undervalue the importance of getting the right pillow and mattress. This leads to sore shoulders, neck, back or other issues.

Sleeping posture should be as neutral as you would standing upright:

The spine should not be curved sideways due to too high or too low of a pillow, and the spine should maintain its lordotic and kyphotic curve with good support from the mattress. 

Our major rule for sleeping:

Choosing pillow

  1. Females: Try the low side of a contour pillow first
  2. Males: Try the high side of a contour pillow
