Sleep Disorder, Cured
I know this has almost nothing to do with style, but I recently upgraded the pillows on my bed, and it's changed my life. I'd been terrified of feathers ever since I tried out a down comforter more than a decade ago and woke up in the middle of the night with a horrible allergic reaction. My husband and I were deeply divided on this issue, as he loves big plush down everything. So for our one-year anniversary, I tracked down a company called Pacific Coast, which makes down bedding that's guaranteed not to trigger allergies, and ordered some pillows to try. The feathers are washed obsessively till every speck of sneeze-inducing dust and dirt is gone, and should you, like me, still fear that's not enough, the pillow itself is cut from a special type of cotton that's woven to form a seal between you and the feathers. I've had zero allergy effects and have slept way better ever since I got them, and there's even an aesthetic upside: Down pillows look fluffier and less lumpy, making your bed that much more inviting too.
