Pillows: They Don't Have To Be Complicated!

Pillows: They Don't Have To Be Complicated!

Choosing the right pillow to help you get a good night's sleep.


We all know the best side of the pillow is the coolest side. But does the side really matter if the firmness of your pillow is incompatible with the way you sleep? 


There are many factors to consider when choosing a pillow, but the most important are your size, whether you sleep on your back, side, or stomach, and the firmness of your mattress. 


The pillows we carry at olive & elle are produced by St. Genève, the most reputable down product manufacturer in Canada. They are experts at this sort of thing and have developed a simple 30 second test to help you select the right pillow to achieve your best night's sleep. If you're considering purchasing a new pillow, we highly recommend you take 30 seconds to complete the test to help with your decision. Or, come for a visit and we can help you through it!
