Sleeping on a latex pillow offers you many advantages, and makes a perfect investment for many people. Latex pillows provide you with outstanding support and cushioning — and they're also durable and breathable. They're even dust mite and mildew resistant, and antimicrobial.
When you're out shopping for the ultimate latex pillow, you have a couple primary choices to take into consideration:
In a nutshell, the primary difference between these two types of latex pillows are overall airflow and pillow density. A shredded latex pillow provides a little softer feel to it, and its shredded foam allows more flow of air throughout the pillow. This will help provide better cooling, and limits heat retention. The solid latex pillow will typically provide a more pronounced, denser feel.
Latex pillows are suggested if you're:
As mentioned above, you have a couple of primary options to consider: A shredded latex pillow and a solid (usually contoured) latex pillow. Let’s look at both in more detail, including their benefits and differences.
With a natural shredded latex pillow, you get a soft pillow that combines moldability and comfort of standard pillows with the resilient and hypoallergenic botanical latex nature. It’s a perfect choice if you’re looking to generate the best shape and ideal softness by smushing and fluffing your pillow. A shredded latex pillow also has amazing ventilation and airflow because of shredded natural latex's cell structure.
A solid latex pillow conforms to the shape of your head, and offers a smooth, soft sleeping surface. It also provides a buoyancy feel.
Solid latex gently and softly cradles your neck and head, with incredible pressure relief in any sleeping position. You can indulge in soft, buoyant support all night long.
Shredded latex gives you the fluffiness and light feeling of standard down pillows that don’t shift or bunch, and never go flat. You just sleep cool and comfy.
The main difference between a solid natural latex pillow and a shredded latex pillow is the density and airflow of the pillow. The shredded type feels a bit softer, and the shredded foam lets in more airflow into the pillow, which helps limit heat retention, and provide better cooling. The solid type usually has a denser, more pronounced feel to it, but still allows you to sleep cool.
Both the shredded latex pillow and the solid latex pillow options provide great sleep! If you are a person who enjoys fluffing and adjusting your pillow, you may opt for the natural shredded latex pillow. But, if you'd rather sleep on a smooth and incredibly soft surface that easily conforms to your head's shape, choose the solid natural latex pillow. Both options, however, provide you with plant-derived, all-natural latex without fillers or chemicals.
