If your choice turns out to be a cotton filled pillow you should replace it when needed rather than washing it. Because over time cotton pillows will become very dense because of the body weight that is constantly put on them. And remember cotton pillows are very affordable so replacing them when needed is worth the cost to avoid health problems that can be directly related to breathing in mold.
Over time, cotton filled pillows are beginning to lose their firmness and not to support the neck properly. The pillows that we recommend, does not have a problem and therefore, after a very long time.
They may often have different designs too. Maybe a wave-like design, or it can have a pocket where your head sits. Material is also another variable. I've seen, experimented with, and have reviewed pillows of all different materials. Fiber filled pillows, water based pillows, foam pillows, buckwheat pillows, etc... I tend to like fiber filled pillows that are standard firmness, not too hard and not too soft. This allows for good support and a comfortable night's sleep. Also, synthetic fibers are often hypoallergenic and don't hold dust mites like a feather pillow may. I tend to find memory foam to be slightly too hard for many, and I don't want to play around and have to adjust my pillow like you sometimes have to with a water based pillow. But again, you may need to try some different options to see what you like best.
