Memory Foam Pillows
Nothing beats getting a great night's sleep, and when you're looking to improve your quality of sleep, your pillow is a great place to start! Memory foam pillows from Kohl's offer you a level of comfort that you simply cannot get from traditional pillows. For several years now, memory foam pillows have been gaining in popularity for several reasons, but one of the biggest attractions is the way the material reacts to pressure. Memory foam is engineered to conform to your head and neck, securely cradling you in a way that helps your head to stay in healthy alignment with your spine. It is also built to be durable, resilient, and support you all night long without losing shape or caving in over the course of your slumber.
So what is the story of memory foam and where did we get this remarkable means of sleep quality improvement? Memory foam has its genesis in the 1970s when a group of NASA engineers were asked to design special pressure-relieving seat cushions to ensure optimal comfort for astronauts during their excursions into space. The custom seats they came up with employed a durable, body-conforming material that we all now know as memory foam. But this material has undergone all kinds of transformations since then, and when you're searching for memory foam bed pillows, the options are seemingly endless.
But not all memory foam is created equally! Depending on the feel and support you're looking for, you might prefer your memory foam pillow to be hypoallergenic, cooling, or something made for sleeping in multiple positions throughout the night.
A hypoallergenic memory foam pillow is a pillow constructed of both natural and manmade fibers that are not known to cause allergies. They also may contain materials that are known to more naturally deter allergens such as dust mites from settling upon them. Airy pillows that have excellent breathability create a dry environment in which mites, molds, and mildews are unable to thrive. Most memory foam pillows actually are hypoallergenic in nature, but some simply have more supportive properties than others which is why they are classified specifically as hypoallergenic.
Many traditional pillows, though they may be comfortable and even supportive, trap heat. And, with nowhere for that heat to go, they can elevate your body temperature. But the best cooling memory foam pillows offer a whole different kind of pillow experience. They're soft and supportive, retain their shape after hours of sleeping, and keep your head cool throughout the night.
When people talk about memory foam, most assume there's just one type of memory foam — you know, memory foam. But traditional memory foam, though springy and supportive, can actually trap heat in, whereas shredded memory foam allows for better airflow and is a better type to invest in when you're searching for cooling pillows.
Pillows designed with some form of cooling gel memory foam, either all over the pillow or on just one side, are also extremely popular options that stay cool even longer. The gel not only resists heat, but it regulates your body temperature, effectively cooling you even if you're asleep for hours.
Some people sleep on their side. Some people sleep on their backs. Some people sleep on their front. Each position has proven to require a differently shaped pillow for maximum comfort. But who wants to sleep with four different pillows, let alone try to rouse herself from a deep sleep just to switch pillows when she switches positions? No one, that's who. And a multi-position sleeper memory foam pillow from Kohl's will ensure that no one has to. No matter what position you prefer to catch your Z's, and especially if you prefer to change it up throughout the night, a multi-position sleeper pillow is sure to give you the comfort and support you need to wake up every morning feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day. And you'll find it at Kohl's!
Sleep Position & Density
Side Sleepers should seek a firm style to support the neck and maintain proper spine alignment.
Back sleepers should choose a medium support pillow to align the head, neck and shoulder.
Stomach sleepers should avoid dthick, bulky pillows and opt for a thinner style with soft support.
Other Fill Type
Down is soft, yet resilient and provides flexible support where you need it. A well-cared-for down pillow will last longer than synthetic fill, as down will revitalize with regular washing, making it a worthwhile investment.
Feather is a less expensive natural fill that generally provides more support than down.
Down alternative is a hypoallergenic, synthetic clustered fiber specifically designed to mimic the loft and comfort of down, but is generally a less expensive option and offered in a wide variety of firmness levels.
