Tips and Tricks

Unfortunately, pillows don't last forever. When they are properly cared for, they can last a few years, and generally, natural-fill pillows are more durable than synthetic.

  • KNOW THE SIGNS

    Pay attention! Do you wake up often during the night to fix your pillow? Does it seem to be sagging or that the fill is breaking into small pieces?

    These are probably signs of wear and tear and that your pillow is old. Over time, it’s also possible that your needs have changed and that your pillow no longer suits you.

    Get back to enjoying deep and restful nights of sleep with a new pillow that perfectly meets your needs. 

  • MAKING YOUR PILLOW LAST LONGER

    It’s pretty easy to care for your pillows and prolong their life.

    Get in the habit of fluffing your pillow every morning when you wake up in order to fix and replace the fill after you sleep.

    It’s also recommended to use a pillow protector in order to avoid all contact with impurities that could affect the quality of your pillow.

Just like when buying a duvet, choosing a pillow starts with deciding on the fill and the quality of the construction.

  • SYNTHETIC FILL

    These pillows are affordable, easy-care (they’re washable and quick to dry), and are a great alternative for people who are allergic to down.

    They are generally made of polyester sheets or flakes that mimic the fluffy feel of down. 

    Memory foam is also a favourite fibre that’s generally pretty firm, durable, and comfortable.

  • NATURAL FILL

    Usually made from the feathers and down of waterfowl, these pillows are air permeable, meaning that they allow moisture to evaporate so you stay dry while you sleep.

    They are very durable, always offer unparalleled comfort, and are more expensive to make because of the fact that high quality down is rare.

    But what’s the difference between feathers and down?  The answer is simple.
    Down is softer and lighter, while feathers are firmer and more economical.

  • FILL POWER

    Fill power is the scale of measurement that exists to measure down’s quality.

    It measures the number of cubic inches occupied by one ounce of down.

    A high fill power means the down has more volume and that it will be fluffier, warmer, and more insulating. It will also be lighter and more durable.

  • THE COVER

    The cover, also called the ticking, is the fibre that covers the pillow.

    Its main purpose is to keep the fill inside the pillow. Usually made of cotton, the quality of the cover is determined by the thread count, similar to sheets. The higher the thread count, the finer, silkier, and more resistant the cotton will be.

    At Simons, all our pillows are made with a high quality cover that prevents the fibres from escaping.

How you sleep often determines how firm your pillow should be. Of course, since everyone is different, you should also take your preferences in terms of comfort into account.

  • FIRMNESS LEVEL

    The quality and quantity of natural or synthetic fibres used in the pillow’s fill determines how soft or firm the pillow is.

    In general, synthetic fibres are firmer. However, they generally start to break down twice as fast.

    Natural fibres, on the other hand, easily mould to your head, neck, and shoulders to provide soft support. 

  • SLEEP POSITION

    Tell us how you sleep and we’ll tell you what pillow will be best!

    On your stomach: A soft and fluffy pillow will be the comfiest since it will allow your head to sink into the fill and your backbone to stay in its natural position.

    On your back: A semi-firm pillow will give you great support and hug the natural curve in your neck without lifting your head too high so that you’re comfortable.

    On your side: A firm pillow will be the best choice. It provides excellent support for your head and neck while keeping them alignment.


    Do you tend to change positions often during the night? Don’t worry. Go for a semi-firm pillow that will be more versatile. 

  • DID YOU KNOW?

    How tall a person is can also affect their needs. A tall person tends to prefer the support of thicker pillows.
