M ans s pillow
Anti allergy soft touch medium support pillows
Having moved house and obviously needing bedding I bought some of the Marks and Spencer pillows.
These are advertised as being the kind of pillows which always stay supremely soft wash after wash, but as yet I haven't actually washed them I am always a little nervous about washing pillows because they seem to go a bit clumpy on me. It has a non-allergenic filling made from recycled plastic bottles and luckily, given the claims, It's machine washable at 50°C.
The pillow is recommended for people who mostly on their back or front, because the neck and head receive proper support while the alignment of the upper back and shoulders can be properly maintained. I had really never considered previously that different pillows were better for different ways of sleeping but when I thought about it I can see that it is sensible really to chose a pillow recommended for the way you sleep.
The pillows are normal pillow size and conveniently look like pillows. The filling is 100% polyester while the outside oft he pillow is 50% cotton and 50% polyester. This make up of materials is obviously the thing which makes the pillows washable as there are no feathers. They are quite firm to the touch and maybe because they are still relatively new they do totally fill the pillowcase. I have previously predominantly used feather pillows which do seem to have a lot more give and so are easier to get into the pillowcases. However, once these are inside and fluffed up they look really cosy lying at the head of the bed. Each pillow is certainly high enough that one pillow is sufficient, because two pillows which is what I usually have make me feel as though I am sitting up in bed.
The pillows are available from Marks and Spencer stores and also online at www.marksandspencer.com. They cost £12 each and are also on offer at £19.50 for two pillows.
The pillows are good quality and reasonably priced. I have now used these pillows for six months and they retain their shape although they have become a little bit softer which for me is a good thing. I haven't tried to wash them yet but am sure they will be fine.
Good pillows at a good price.
