Choosing The Right Pillow

Choosing the right pillow is the first step. There’s no single pillow that’s great for everyone. We are all different shapes and sizes and have different sleeping styles and so we need to choose a pillow which is suited to each of us. At The Old Empire, we cater to all your pillow needs to help you select the best possible pillow.

Here’s a handy pillow reference guide to help you to narrow down the options, you’ll be sleeping better in no time:

Probably the most important factor in choosing the right pillow. This determines the required pillow support level (thickness) to adequately support your head and align your neck with your spine.

Do you mostly:

Sleep on your front (stomach sleeper)?

Choose a softer pillow (Royal Majesty, Crown jewel down pillow or a soft or extrasoft gusset microfibre pillow)

Sleep on your back?

Choose a medium thickness pillow (high filled down firm, soft pillow or firm gusset microfibre pillow)

Sleep on your side

Choose a medium-high thickness pillow, high-fill Royal Siberian Ultimate Firm down pillow or  extrafirm microfibre pillow.

If you are a side sleeper, you should try putting a soft, low-density pillow between your knees (Crown Jewel Body or King pillow) . You might find  this unusual, but it helps to align your upper hip properly, taking the pressure off and making you very comfortable

A mixture of all (mixed sleeper)

Choose a medium thickness pillow (luxx surround, OE support or the extrasoft pillow.
