Choosing the perfect pillow in 4 simple steps

  1. The right size
  2. The right height
  3. The perfect padding
  4. The right support


How do you choose the perfect pillow for a restful sleep? At DaunenStep we guide you step by step to your dream pillow.


The right size


In Italy the standard size is 50x80cm. In South Tyrol, however, there is a slightly larger standard size: 60x80cm.

We recommend that you use your existing pillowcases as a guide and buy a new pillow based on them. At DaunenStep, we offer all popular sizes. 


The right height


Do you sleep on your stomach, on your back or on your side? That's the real question! If you sleep on your stomach, we recommend a lower pillow - to relax your spine. If you sleep on your back or side, high pillows are perfect for you. On our website you can select your sleeping posture and find the perfect pillow.


The right filling


As with comforters, pillows have different fillings with different qualities:

Down pillowSynthetic fiber pillowMemory pillow
Natural and very soft Washable at high temperatures High level of support
Breathable Soft Support for the spine
Thermoregulating Hypoallergenic  


The right support


Finally, you can choose between pillows that are more supportive or softer. Pillows with more support (memory pillows or pillows with a high percentage of down) support your head and neck.

If you prefer a softer pillow, however, we recommend a pillow with less support (microfiber pillows or pillows with a high percentage of down). These pillows are especially soft and perfect for anyone who prefers a soft sleep experience. More questions? Feel free to contact us!
