Boyfriend pillows are available only in Japan, and are shaped like a pair of arms. The person curls up with it and it is said to be both comfortable and comforting because it is like a boyfriend who can never leave you. Bed pillows will eventually become soiled, through the accumulation of sweat and potentially saliva and of human skin cells. Dust mites live in pillows, feeding on the skin cells that gather and thus 10% of the weight of a two year old pillow may be dust mites, dust mite feces and dead mites.
Pillows are cloth cases that are stuffed with soft material such as cotton or foam. They are used to give support to the head while sleeping. On the other hand, throw pillows are decorative pillows that are used mainly on couches and are not used for supporting the head. Throw pillows are decorated by some motifs or design and they blend with the décor of the room. Throw pillows come in different shapes and sizes.
The size of your throws is also important, though it is not a real quality indicator it is something to look out for. A lot of manufacturers are making everything smaller to cut cost and this has permeated into the world of home decor pillows as well. Though this is somewhat of an individual choice depending on your design, typically large pillows look better and give a less busy and cluttered looked when layered together. You will usually want to go for something that is 16 - 20 inches or more unless you have a specific need for smaller pillows.
