8 Benefits of a Memory Foam Pillow

Health Oct 14, 2021

Do you wake up with a headache or a sore neck? Have trouble sleeping because you can’t find a comfortable spot on your pillow? Investing in a memory foam pillow could be the most comfortable solution to your sleeping problems. 

Memory foam pillows are filled with a type of foam that contours itself to your head and neck. A good quality memory foam pillow will give support by a slight push-back feel when you lie on it.

So, if you’re struggling with your head and neck pain after sleeping, let us tell you about the benefits of a memory foam pillow that might offer a solution.


1. Head and Neck Support

Your head weighs around 5kg. That’s a lot for a normal pillow to handle, which is why your head usually sinks deeply into the pillow, straining your neck and shoulders. This problem usually gets even worse over time, as your pillow ages and the material within becomes compacted and uneven. 

Memory foam contours itself to the shape of your head and neck and retains its shape. It supports your preferred sleeping position and reduces strain on your neck and spine. A memory foam pillow can also help to alleviate the burden on the pressure points in your neck and head, further helping to reduce pain.

2. Spine Support

Your spine works hard all day every day, that’s why it’s important to rest it at night. The right pillow will keep your neck in the correct alignment with your chest and lower back to prevent strain on your spine whilst you sleep. 

A memory foam pillow is designed to encourage the natural alignment of the spine whilst also offering superior comfort and support to the upper body.


3. Hygienic and Hypoallergenic

A memory foam pillow is made from synthetic materials that are naturally hypoallergenic. This means they prevent bacteria, mould, dust mites, and fungus from growing. If you’re an asthma or allergy sufferer, this type of pillow is for you.

As memory foam pillows prevent these nasties from building up, it offers a safer and more hygienic choice for your family’s wellbeing.

4. Snoring Relief

Does your partner complain that you snore? Snoring can be caused by varying factors, including sleep apnoea, congestion and more. But an often-unacknowledged cause of snoring can be an individual’s sleeping posture. 

The right sleeping posture will keep your airways aligned and open, whilst the wrong sleeping posture will do the opposite. A memory foam pillow will help to keep your head and neck aligned with the spine, allowing the airways to remain open and in-turn reducing snoring.


5. Easy to Clean

A memory foam pillow is easy to clean. The best pillows come with a machine-washable cover that you can remove and wash. Then all you need to do is spot clean any stains on your pillow and you’re ready to sleep again.

The Bambi memory foam pillow range all come with removable covers which are machine washable, offering an easy way to maintain your pillow cleanliness.

6. Long Lasting

Memory foam pillows are usually more expensive than the pillows you can get at some department stores. But there’s a good reason for this. Aside from the extra comfort and support, a pillow made with memory foam is naturally more durable. 

Cheaper pillows are less dense and usually only last about six months before they become floppy and non-supportive. But a memory foam pillow can last up to three years if you look after it, which means that these pillows can be more cost-effective over time.

7. Cool in Summer and Warm in Winter

Australia’s weather can be extreme. And there’s nothing worse than trying to sleep when it’s 35 degrees outside and your bed feels like a sauna, or when you can’t get warm enough in the winter. The right pillow can help with both of these problems.
