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.
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.
As you shop for the pillows, check to see that the casings are removable and of a washable material. This way, you will have no problem using them in a house full of small children who have a tendency of soiling everything around them. Some casings will require to be hand-washed while others will be best dry-cleaned. Depending on what you can afford, go for the best.
