How many pillows do you sleep with?


I quite often (if not mostly) used to like two nice down pillows (with 100% cotton covering, polyester got too warm for me), on my bed. But over the past few years I have stopped using pillows altogether, and moved to almost entirely sleeping on my back. For some reason pillows just strain my neck too much now (not that I have any neck pain issues as such, thankfully), it's also cooler in summer to lie directly on the mattress. The only pillow I use now is a very cheap springy artificial fibre one that serves as a footrest at the end of my bed. The other pillow in that pack is used as a backrest with lots of cushions, when sitting at my laptop in bed.

There are three on my bed. The memory foam one from IKEA, I only use for sitting up in bed. It's always in the vertical position. I don't sleep on it.

The other two are from Target. One is quite deflated/flat after only 2 years.

1 regular non-down pillow.

It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls, for the times they are a changing.

Are they heavy? And do they ‘degrade’ over time? I’ve never actually used or felt one.

Heavier than a normal pillow due to the buckwheat. Like could pickup with two fingers without much stress.

Not that I know of.

Just have to make sure you cover it properly with many pillow cases to prevent sweat, etc getting to it's cover which can discolour (white to dirty looking).

Basically puff up in middle, put head on it and make sure shoulder is touching pillow.

I used to get headaches, neck aches. Buckwheat pillow solved those.

Three. The bottom one is thick but not heavy, the middle is a boomerang pillow, and the top is a soft, flat one. When Iím sitting, I use four.

I have several but it varies how many I use. I like a fluffy pillow. Of course, half the time I crash on the couch with a tiny little pillow. Pillows>blankets

I use two fairly thin ones - it has to be exactly the right height. (obviously)

I also have a few others on the other side of the bed to give the illusion that someone else sleeps there. (even though that hasn't happened for quite some time)

3, I sleep on 2 & the third I use for propping myself up to watch TV or something.

1 basic pillow, which is at least 20 years old.
