I have several pillows -one is a goose feather.
The latest I bought are that hard foam and I have never liked hard pillows before, but these are shaped so your neck rests in them and since I bought this one, I have not had the neck problems I had before. I often had a sore neck on waking.
So, when I watch TV in bed, I use both pillows and then take away the feather one when I go to sleep.
My dear old pillow is flat & soft. And it gets aired daily, & has a pillow protector on it as well. Pillow case gets washed every two days, hung on the line in the (hopeful) sun, then starched & pressed on my Elnapress!
