How Contour Pillows are Helping Aussies Sleep Better?

When it comes to finding the perfect pillow for you, there are endless options in the pillow market today.

It doesn't matter whether you like to sleep on your back or on your stomach. Perhaps you're a side sleeper or a combination of all sleeping positions.

If you experience neck pain, headaches, or frequent tossing and turning - a memory foam pillow could be just what you're looking for. It's why so many Australians consider our memory foam pillows the ideal choice for a truly restful night's sleep. Better yet, it's completely adjustable so you can customise it to your liking for optimum support and comfort.

What is a contour pillow?

Memory foam has become one of the most popular types of pillows. Unlike cotton stuffing or down, memory foam allows pillows to conform to the unique shape of the head and neck. By supporting the natural curvature of your body, it seeks to reduce strain and improve spinal alignment.

“By conforming to the body, it does not create any undue pressure points and simultaneously allows the body to assume any posture it deems appropriate.”

Dr. Rahul Shah, a New Jersey-based board-certified orthopedic spine and neck surgeon with Premier Orthopedic Associates.

Tired of fluffing and reshaping your pillow during the night? This struggle is far too relatable. However, you can turn it into a distant memory with a memory foam pillow that maintains its original shape. Take extra comfort in knowing our range of pillows is recommended by a wide variety of healthcare professionals, including physiotherapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths.

5 Benefits of Memory Foam Pillows

More sleepers are jumping on the memory foam pillow bandwagon - and all for good reasons. There are countless advantages that memory foam provides for those wanting to improve their quality of sleep. Below we take you through 5 benefits of using our contoured pillows.

1. Say Goodbye to Neck Pain

Arguably the biggest issue with traditional pillows is they don't provide your head and neck with enough support. Often your head sinks in too deeply with a regular pillow, thereby placing unnecessary strain on your neck and spine.

If you are waking up with aches and pains - there's a good chance, it's your pillow. It may be time to upgrade to a contour pillow. Aussies are sleeping better with contour pillows as they distribute weight evenly, making them the ideal choice for back sleepers and side sleepers needing more support.

2. Excellent Contour Variance

An adjustable memory foam pillow conforms to your go-to sleeping position and provides you with ample support. It features a higher contour side and a lower contour side. You can augment the contour variance by flipping the pillow to whichever side/height you prefer.

3. Encourages Side Sleeping

Not only is it preferred by 60% of adults, but did you know side sleeping is one of the healthiest sleeping positions for various reasons, such as:

  • Back and neck pain relief
  • Improved gut health
  • Better brain health
  • Healthier pregnancy
  • Reduced risk of snoring and sleep apnea

Whether you suffer from sleep apnea or you're guilty of snoring now and then, this type of position to sleep offers many health benefits. Starting with helping you breathe properly - sleeping on your side can be a natural snoring remedy. Nearly everyone snores from time to time, but for some people, it can be a chronic problem. Some cases of snoring may indicate a serious health condition, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) - in which you should book a doctor's appointment immediately!

Nevertheless, snoring is certainly a nuisance for your partner and is disruptive to their sleep. Luckily, there are simple changes you can make to improve both your sleep and the sleep of your loved ones. It is important to try avoiding any alcohol consumption close to bedtime and working to reduce your body fat percentage. In addition, you should sleep on your side as much as you can - our Complete Sleeprrr Original memory foam pillow will be your best friend here. This pillow features scalloped under-edges to allow your shoulders to slip snugly beneath the pillow. Plus, the contoured design helps to keep the airways open, alleviating symptoms of sleep apnea and snoring.

4. Adjustable Contour Pillow

There are various ways to adjust this contour pillow to your preferred sleeping style. One way is to remove as many foam noodles as you like (found in the core foam surface) to find your most comfortable fit. The more foam noodles that you remove, the softer your pillow will feel - all the while providing you with plenty of support. If you have sensitive skin or ears that tend to feel sore in the morning due to sleeping on a pillow that is too hard, simply removing these pieces of foam will help tremendously.

In addition, you can remove the foam inserts to soften your contour pillow as shown below. For instance, if your memory foam pillow is too high, you can easily lower its height by removing one or both of the memory foam pad inserts. As you know, with the right height and ample memory foam support, you can bring relief to your neck, spine, and back.

5. Breathable Fibers? You Bet

The term, “cold side of the pillow” takes on a whole new meaning with memory foam. The breathable fibres that surround the core foam allow the air to properly circulate so that you stay cooler during the night. This contour pillow is complete with an open-weave pillow slip that allows the air to penetrate inside the pillow and move about so that you are not overheating and breaking out into a sweat in the middle of the night.

If you suffer from night sweats or hot flushes as so many women experience during menopause, you may want to consider our Complete Sleeprrr - Gel Infused pillow for relief on those warmer nights. Gel-infused memory foam is designed to respond to your body temperature and draw away body heat, helping you stay soothingly cool while you sleep.
