Is that old pillow you've had since college starting to look a little off? Perhaps the support you used to get is not there anymore, or maybe you've begun to realize that the lumps that used to support you are now just gross blobs of dead skin and dirt.

While it may not have crossed your mind, many people buy a new pillow when updating their mattress. There is no point in getting a wonderfully supportive new memory foam mattress or a cooling mattress only to keep using the unsupportive pillow you've used since your first year in college.

With that in mind, let's look at the top five options Furniture Fair has for replacing your old, worn-out pillow. Furniture Fair has been providing a better night's sleep to the Cincinnati, Dayton, Northern Kentucky, and Louisville areas for over 55 years, and we want to help you too.

So take a look at the five brands we like best here at Furniture Fair and find out if you should replace more than just your mattress. A better, more supportive night's sleep may be one pillow purchase away.
