Foam vs feather pillow, which do you prefer?
If its a soft Foam one, ill use it, But I Still prefer my Soft feather pillow
I should select whichever pillow that would give me the best chance to exclude airflow and suffocate the life out of inane threads like this one.
I have a 20" x 20" foam neck-support pillow.
Egg crate on one side, smooth on the other, and offers several thicknesses.
I move it around as I need it. Works.
Foam, mostly because of my allergies.
This is strangely something I feel pretty damned strongly about.
I'll go well out of my way to avoid sleeping on anything but a single down pillow. Both foam and hollow fibre invariably give me an incredibly achey neck.
Strangely my other half adores incredibly thin cheap hollow fibre ones for the same reason, she just finds them to be better for her.
Ok, here's the thing. Do you like to stack pillows when you sleep or do you like to sleep on one thick pillow? I have a foam mattress and pillow and i would never go back to the old fashioned way. It took some time to get used to not being able to stack pillows, but once you get used to it the sleeping experience is AMAZING.
I don't know why, but I barely sleep on pillows.
I just rest my head on my mattress. And during the night if I ever need one, I just move my head up to the 'pillow section' of the bed.
I could never get used to foam pillows. They always hurt my neck.
I can't sleep on anything but a single foam pillow. Never been able to sleep on fluffy pillows, not sure why! I mostly sleep the edge of a foam pillow, facing over the side of it whilst sleeping on my stomach.
Has to be a soft foam though... can't stand those modern, tougher foam pillows.
Agreed. (But you did contribute.)
You and me both. Hate them and I have tried quite a few but the results are the same. Sore neck and or acky back...

Water pillow for me. Easily adjustable on firmness and height.
Feather. I can't fall asleep on a foam pillow, it's too uncomfortable.
Definitely feather. It just feels right.
I fold one pillow, even when I have two down pillows available I find it preferable to fold one pillow, no clue why, it's just what I do.
I do the same, it's just what I do instinctively. Can't explain it.
Having your neck at the fold would allow for more support of your upper spine.
Feather pillows for the WIN.
I can only use a pillow if I'm sleeping on my side. If I am sleeping on my side, then it doesn't really matter what pillow, but I prefer foam.
I have used a feather pillow for years. Thankfully, I don't have any allergies to them or anything. I did just pick up a gel filled pillow at Sam's, so I'm going to give that a shot and see how that works. I had never seen a gel filled before.
There are no words that accurately describe the intensity with which I hate feather pillows.
I like a nice thick, soft hollow fibre pillow. I grew up with a mother who strongly advocated feather pillows, but she let me buy something different after she saw how cranky I got when sleeping on them. I don't quite understand it but I can never get a good nights sleep on feather.
Wow... I never thought I'd be so passionate about a pillow
Foam seems to warm up for some reason, and a pillow needs to stay ice cold.
Affirmative, as in most things I voted as an "other"
I don't think I have ever used a foam pillow. To my knowledge, all of mine have been feather ones.
I prefer foam neck-support pillows. I have an Ikea one that works well. Anything else leaves me with neck aches. I haven't had them in ages since changing to that kind of pillow and a different, firmer bed.
