Although memory foam and down are excellent choices when it comes to filling for pillows, they have the unfortunate tendency to cause heat retention, and may not always be as easy to adjust during the night.
Another great filler option that I have found, is Microbeads, which will help with the heat retention issue and are much more pliable and adjustable if you are looking for a soft and comfy pillow.
In this article though, I am concentrating on Microbead filled Body Pillows, which is something quite rare, yet much sought after.
Microbeads in Your Body Pillow
A body pillow in general terms, is basically just a larger or oversized pillow that you use to provide either full body comfort, or back, neck, shoulder and other body area support, rather than just for your head and neck.
In order to get a good night to rest you do need a very comfortable and supportive pillow in overall, although a body pillow can provide relief in areas of tension and just ensure that extra touch of comfort.
Microbeads are a fill used in many pillows, consisting of small polystyrene beads, which is usually found in most of your bean bags and neck travel pillows. Microbeads provide excellent airflow and easily conform to the shape of your neck and head, almost like memory foam, just much more adjustable and soft.
Though rare in body pillows Microbeads can offer you exemplary comfort in this type of pillow, and Microbeads are fast becoming a much more popular fill in most body pillows these days.
