Plush vs. Firm Pillows: What are the Differences?

Shopping for bed pillows can be overwhelming; what seems like a simple task has become more complicated with the increasing variety of bed pillow options available. Let’s look at the difference between plush and firm pillows to help you get started.

Plush Pillows

A plush pillow is soft so that your head sinks into the pillow; it can be made of a variety of soft filling materials including cotton, feathers, polyester, wool, or low-density foam. When purchasing a bed pillow, it’s best to test it for yourself instead of relying on the way it’s labeled in the Calgary mattress store. The definition of ‘plush’ is subjective and can vary from person to person, so it’s best to try it for yourself.

Firm Pillows

On the other hand, a firm pillow is solid to support your head. Firm pillows can be made with just about any pillow filling by densely packing the filling into the bed pillow. However, some filling are hard on their own and are only used for firm pillows; these include buckwheat hulls, flaxseed, dense foam, millet, and polyester pellets.

Which Bed Pillow is Right for You?

Choosing a pillow from a Calgary mattress store is usually a matter of personal preference. The most important thing is having a bed pillow that is comfortable for you and will support your head and neck during the night. Occasionally, your doctor may recommend that you use either a plush or firm pillow because of a medical condition or injury; in this case, it’s best to follow their instructions.
