As mattresses have evolved past a simple cushion filled with straw or feathers, so too have pillows evolved from a sack full of soft fibers. With almost every major mattress manufacturer now producing their own memory foam material, memory foam pillows were inevitable. With materials like memory foam and latex, it is now possible to shape pillows into something besides an amorphous blob of softness. Contour pillows are scientifically designed to provide the most supportive and comfortable sleep possible. If you have moved past sleeping on a mattress full of straw and feathers, it's time to do the same with your pillow.
