How to Pick the Perfect Bamboo Pillow for You
5 min read

Are you having trouble sleeping and waking up in the morning? If so, you may be due to an uncomfortable pillow that’s making it difficult to relax your head and neck while you sleep. Bamboo pillows are known to have healing benefits, but not all of them are made equal, which means finding one that works for you can take time and careful consideration. Luckily, there are some key features you can look out for when shopping for the best bamboo pillow to suit your needs, so keep reading to learn more about how to pick the perfect one!

Know What Type of Sleeper You Are

The most common types of sleepers are back, stomach, and side. If you're a back sleeper, you want a pillow that will keep your spine aligned. If you're a stomach sleeper, you need extra cushioning so your spine isn't in an uncomfortable position. Side sleepers usually want a pillow that is taller than standard pillows and offers ample support where they need it most.

Determine the Right Firmness Level

If you sleep on your back, stomach or side, then you need a specific type of pillow. The best bamboo pillows are made specifically for these sleeping positions. If you sleep on your back, you need a supportive and thick neck pillow that contours to your spine. If you sleep on your stomach, you will want an orthopedic neck pillow that elevates your head and neck so they don't rest directly on the mattress. A good stomach sleeper should also use a body pillow or two regular pillows under their hips while sleeping so they can maintain proper alignment of their spine as well. Lastly, if you sleep on your side, make sure to get a triangular shaped pillow that will cradle your neck and keep it aligned with the rest of your body.

Consider Your Sleeping Position

The best bamboo pillows are designed with a specific sleeping position in mind. As such, you need to determine what your favorite sleeping position is before purchasing one of these pillows. Some people prefer side-sleeping, while others choose back-sleeping or stomach-sleeping. Whatever your preference is, it's worth it to buy a pillow that suits your specific needs.

Choose the Right Fill Material

First, you should consider what type of pillow you're looking for. Are you looking for a memory foam pillow? A buckwheat hull pillow? Or a bamboo fiber pillow? Next, think about whether or not it needs to be hypoallergenic. Finally, think about how firm or soft it needs to be and whether or not it needs any added cooling properties. The answer will ultimately depend on your personal preference, but these are all things that need consideration when looking at bamboo pillows.

Select the Correct Pillow Size

Before you go out and buy a bamboo pillow, there are a few things that you should know about your new bedding. The first thing is what size of pillow do you need? There are three sizes available: Standard Size, Queen Size, and King Size. Make sure to take measurements of your bed before buying. If you want a Standard size, then measure from your headboard to where the top of your mattress will be (plus 2 inches) so it has room for stretching. A Queen sized pillow can also fit on an adjustable frame as well as most mattresses. For all other cases, measure from where the top of your headboard is at its highest point to where the top of your mattress will be (plus 3-5 inches) in order to make sure it will fit on most beds.

What type should I get? When looking into purchasing a bamboo pillow set, one might be inclined by price alone but then wonder which type they should get. What type would suit them best? Soft vs Firm? Foam vs Latex foam core?

Decide on a Budget
  1. Do you know what your budget is?
  2. How often do you plan on using it?
  3. What size are you looking for?
  4. What shape are you looking for?
  5. Is there a certain material that you prefer?
  6. Does your pillow need to be hypoallergenic or eco-friendly?
  7. Would you like a firm, medium or soft pillow?
