Many people prefer latex foam pillows because of their comfort. These pillows have the ability to conform to the shape of your head and neck, ensuring you a comfortable night's sleep.

These pillows are available in soft, medium and firm according to your preference. They also come in standard, queen and king sizes. Most have a removable, washable cotton cover. Latex foam pillows are ideal for allergy suffers. They are hypoallergenic and anti-microbial. They are also mildew proof and dust mite resistant. You can avoid the expense of dust mite covers if you have this type of pillows.

The advantages for allergy suffers are many and these pillows are often recommended by medical professionals to their patients who suffer from allergies and should certainly be considered if allergies are of concern to you. These pillows are very durable and will last for years. They do not compress or lose their shape as other types of pillows often do and they are available at affordable prices. The latex allows air to circulate and keeps you cool and dry while you are sleeping.

Latex is a sterile product and usually does not require washing. Should washing be desired, the pillow should be washed using lukewarm water and a mild soap. The pillow should then be air-dried at room temperature, never in an automatic dryer. Drying these pillows in an automatic dryer will ruin them because of the heat. The cotton cover that comes with the pillow can, of course, be removed and washed and even replaced should that become necessary. Head and neck support pillows are offered for sale in foam latex. These pillows offer anatomically correct support and positioning which helps to maintain correct spine alignment while you are sleeping. These pillows also properly support the head and help to reduce pressure in the shoulder area.

An internet search for latex foam pillows will reward you with many sites where you can research these pillows. There are online merchants who sell directly and there are manufacturer's sites where names of dealers can be found. Many of these sites have ratings for their products from customers and some have links where your questions can be answered either by telephone or email. Using the internet is a very good way to compare products from different manufacturers and dealers in a short amount of time. Of course, for those who prefer, these pillows can be found at traditional walk-in retail stores that specialize in mattresses or other fine stores that sell all types of bedding.

Knowledgeable salespeople should be available at these stores to aid you in your decision of which pillows are best for your particular situation.
