When it comes to choosing a new bedroom set, pillows and duvets are often the last thing on your mind – but they shouldn’t be. These uncelebrated heroes of the bed world shouldn’t just be tossed aside, figuratively, or literally (no, they should be put away neatly in a storage box when not in frequent use, but that’s a whole other topic!).
Our brilliant brand-new range of pillows and duvets for every budget has arrived.
These new additions to our pillow and duvet range show how choosing the right pillows and duvets can be just as important as buying the best bed.
Dive headfirst into this guide to our new collections and discover the importance of having a supportive pillow and the best duvets for your needs.
Pillows for neck support
Tempur Comfort original Pillow
Pillows should offer support for both your head and neck. An adult human head can weigh between 8lbs and 12lbs .(1) Lugging that load around all day can soon take its toll, and bedtime is the ideal time to ensure your head and neck are well rested. Yet, if your head doesn’t get the right support when you’re lying down, you could find yourself waking with aches and pains.
You can find out more about why your head and neck need support in our article, The Importance of the Right Pillow for Head and Neck Support.
What is the best pillow for neck pain?
Slumberland by Bensons Feather and Down Pillow
Neck pain can be caused by using an unsupportive pillow. If you have too many pillows or even a thick pillow that raises your head too high, this can cause your neck to be an awkward position throughout the night. You may then wake with neck pain when you return your head to its normal position. To avoid waking with neck pain, choose a pillow that is right for the way you sleep.
Pillows can also flatten over time and become the wrong height for your needs. Make sure you change your pillows regularly to avoid this becoming an issue.
Our pillows are designed to give support as you sleep, and our new range of pillows includes pillows designed specifically for your sleeping position. This means side sleepers, back sleepers, and front sleepers can all get a great night’s sleep.
Pillows for side sleepers
iGel Side Sleeper Pillow
What is a side-sleeper pillow and why do I need one?
If you tend to sleep on your side, you’ll need a higher pillow than if you were sleeping flat on your back. When you sleep on your side, your shoulders add a bit of extra height and so your pillow needs to compensate for this. Luckily, we’ve got a choice of pillows for side sleepers. The Slumberland Side Sleeper Pillow is designed for your sleeping position and will fit comfortably between your head and the mattress. This attention to detail helps to align your spine correctly as you sleep on your side.
The iGel Side Sleeper Pillow not only provides superb support for side sleepers but also contains materials that help to keep you at the right temperature as you sleep. If you’re a hot sleeper, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy the way the phase change crystals help to keep you not too hot, not too cold, just right™.
What about a pillow for broad shoulders?
Slumberland by Bensons Deep Side Sleeper Pillow
If your shoulders are broad and you need a bit more height in your pillow, go for the Slumberland Deep Side Sleeper Pillow. These firmer pillows for big shoulders are deeper and help to give you that extra height for comfortable and supportive spine alignment. They’re also great for hot sleepers as they contain temperature regulating climate control fibres.
Pillows for front sleepers
Slumberland by Bensons Front & Back Sleeper Pillow
When you sleep on your front, you’ll need a lower pillow than if you sleep on your side. A supportive pillow is still a must so that your spine can be properly aligned as you sleep. The Slumberland by Bensons Front & Back Sleeper Pillow is a great choice if you swap from front to back or even if you favour either of these sleeping positions. It gives softer support than a side sleeper pillow to ensure your head isn’t raised too far. Again, these pillows include fibres that help to regulate temperature, meaning sweaty, sleepless nights could be a thing of the past.
Pillows for back sleepers
Slumberland Spring Support pillow for front, back, and side sleepers
Slumberland by Bensons Spring Support Pillow
As the title suggests, this pillow is designed for back sleepers, front sleepers, and side sleepers. This pillow offers a responsive mini-spring core wrapped in supportive foam. The pillows are filled with soft polyester fibres for additional comfort and support.
Pillows for all sleeping positions
Perhaps you toss and turn at night, and find yourself sleeping in various positions, or maybe you’re just on the lookout for pillows for the guestroom. The Simply by Bensons Soft & Cosy Pillow may just be the perfect pillow for both you and your guests. This is a Teflon™ treated pillow which means it’s a water-resistant pillow. This treatment also makes the pillow cover stain resistant which is great for messy midnight snackers and for kids' sleepovers.
The Feels Like Down Pillow from Slumberland by Bensons is also a fantastic choice, whatever way you sleep. The 100% synthetic microfibres give that soft, sinking-in feeling associated with down pillows, but without the feathers. If you prefer to stay away from animal products or are vegan, team your Feels Like Down Pillows with a vegan Slumberland Natural Solutions Mattress.
New memory foam pillows
Slumberland by Bensons Memory Zone Pillow
The Memory Zone Pillow by Bensons is the pillow for all you lovers of memory foam.
What’s so good about this memory foam pillow?
- Suitable for all sleeping positions.
- The responsive memory foam moulds to the head, neck and shoulders which can help alleviate aches and pains.
- Memory foam is very durable and “bounces” back into shape soon after use.
- Encased in a soft stretch-knitted cover which is removable and washable.
Simply by Bensons Anti-Allergy Twin Pack Pillows
Allergic reactions can crop up at the most inconvenient times, including when you’re trying to get to sleep. The Simply by Bensons Anti-Allergy Twin Pack Pillows are filled with treated fibres, designed to reduce build-up of dust mites and bacteria, which can be common triggers for allergy sufferers. These pillows offer soft support and are suitable for all sleeping positions.
Team your anti allergy pillows with an anti allergy duvet
Simply by Bensons Anti-Allergy Duvet
Get cosy underneath a super soft duvet designed to reduce allergy triggers.
The Simply by Bensons Anti - Allergy Duvet is available as a single, double, king size, or super king size. It’s machine washable too, providing further help keeping those pesky allergy triggers at bay. With a tog rating of 10.5, it’s great for when the nights become that little bit cooler.
An all seasons duvet
Slumberland by Bensons All Seasons Duvet
Another addition to our duvet collection is the All Seasons Duvet from Slumberland by Bensons. Why change duvets with the seasons when one quality duvet can do the job?
Benefits of a 3-in-1 duvet:
- A lighter 4.5 tog duvet for warm nights
- A9-tog duvet for when it gets a little bit cooler
- Clip these two duvets together for a 13.5 tog on those chilly winter nights.
- Could prove to be cost saving as there’s no need to buy separate duvets as the temperature changes throughout the year.
- If your partner is a hot sleeper, but you prefer a toastier duvet, take one each and you'll both be happy.
Choosing the best duvet size - do I need a double duvet or a king size duvet?
You may think the answer to, "Which is the best duvet size to buy?" is a simple one - if you’ve a double bed, just go for a double duvet, and if you’ve a king size bed, opt for a king size duvet. Yet when your partner is hogging that double quilt and you’re left with a mere sliver of duvet, you’ll wish your duvet had a bit more to give. Invest in a king size duvet, and your other half can drag that duvet over to their side all they want – you’ll still have plenty to stave off the chills. A double duvet for a single bed can be quite handy too, so why not give older kids the option to size-up their duvet too?
