Pillows are items generally used to support and cushion a part of the body. They consist of an outer case that contains some kind of stuffing. Some may be stuffed with feathers, but these are costly pillows and not suitable for the many people who are allergic to feathers. Hence a polyester stuffing is available as an alternative, or even polystyrene beads.
Fiberfill is also pretty easy to use, even though sometimes it just doesn't want to work. Basically it's what you commonly think of as stuffing; the stuff that they put inside stuffed animals and pillows. It's pros contain that it's inexpensive and can be found almost anywhere. Those are two very important features. The one con that I can think of off the top of my head is that it's sometimes hard to get it stuffed in evenly. It's sometimes thinner in a certain place than it is in the rest of the pillow. Or several lumps and bumps throughout. But practice does make better, that's for sure. You can also control the firmness of the pillow. That's another pro. Plus, you can make the pillows in absolutely any size you want. That's just that much more control. With a form, you can only make a pillow in the sizes that they offer the form.
Body pillows are far longer-as much as the height of an adult. They may be straight or these pillows may be 'C' shaped and are used for both head and neck at one end and knees at the bottom as the person almost hugs the pillow. Body pillows are popular with pregnant women. Throw pillows, also known as throw cushions are square pillows that may be used to support the body on a sofa. They may also be decorative pillows that are used simply for looks on a bed or sofa and then removed before actually using the furniture.
