Pillows do you have on your bed? Not ornamental ones but ones you use to sleep, lounge etc. I use 8 at a time. 2 under knees and feet and 6 so I can sleep at an angle. I have a double bed to myself so I can spread out. Can anyone beat my impressive tally🤪?

TrendyNannie6 Fri 17-Jan-20 21:39:27

No I can’t beat yours. King size bed but only 2 for me and 2 for Dh.

NfkDumpling Fri 17-Jan-20 21:44:51

Nope. One and frequently none!

Double bed to myself with 4 pillows. However, I only actually use two (one each side) when sleeping, with one under my knee and the fourth one on the floor grin

Well there are 4, 2 go on the floor when I get into bed and another one when I lay down to sleep so actually only sleep on one.

4 pillows on a double bed, two to sleep on, one to rest my book and a spare.

A double bed for me and my cat but she moves quickly because I continue breathing. I personally use 2 pillows, one is memory foam- I love it.

Double bed for myself.
2 feather ones for sleeping. 2 others to fill the space and hold book n specs.

Just two for me, a sprung pillow (very good for bad back and neck) and a thin ordinary one on top - to get the exact right height.

I sleep on my back, don't move all night but have to have a pillow on my tum since my cat died. A habit I can't (or don't want to) break. sad
Oh! and two pillows for sleeping.

One, regardless of the size of the bed or how many other people are or are not haring it with me. Bed sharers will have their pillows as well.

I have a huge Swiss style one, 1 metre by 60cm - feather and underfilled so I can mould it to the shape I want.

This old house has huge rooms- so we have 2 double beds put together - bliss- a 9ft bed smile

Three soft pillows for my head and shoulders. I tried hard to use only one or two as it supposed to be best, but to no avail, I just like being higher regardless. So I went back to one large V shaped, one 'feels like dawn' and a flat 'stomach sleeper' on top. Bliss!

BlueSky Fri 17-Jan-20 22:39:35

Should be 'feels like down' of course!

CanadianGran Fri 17-Jan-20 22:47:53

I think you beet us all Artdecogran. We typically have 3 each, one of which is a small 9x20", perfect for propping up my book! For sleeping all but one gets pushed to the floor.

My DH uses all for sleeping, he has a bad back and props them under his legs.

Kingsize bed, 4 pillows on it but I only use two for reading and sleeping.
I occasionally use a third on my feet depending on whether the cats decide to play bite my toes or not!

Grammaretto Sat 18-Jan-20 16:52:58

I'm glad you asked. I have 2 but why is it necessary to dress a bed in a showroom with a mountain of pillows? Are they for show? please can someone tell me?

annep1 Sat 18-Jan-20 17:03:58

Two to read and lounge. I sleep on one. Its just the right size to support shoulders as I took some of the filling out and restitched it.

Nortsat46 Sat 18-Jan-20 19:46:17

We have 2 each.

Incidentally, I am absolutely green with envy at the thought of Jura’s nine foot wide bed ... (it shouldn’t be allowed). grin

sodapop Sat 18-Jan-20 19:58:18

I'm intrigued by your bed sharing MOnica do tell smile

Artdecogran Sat 18-Jan-20 20:06:55

Jura2, your Swiss pillow sounds grand. It made me remember that my parents had what they called a bolster, would that be the same thing? The replies also made me wonder what position do people sleep in. I had a friend who could only sleep flat on her stomach which got very interesting when she was pregnant. She spent most of the time indignant at the bump getting in the way. Oh happy days.

M0nica Sat 18-Jan-20 20:08:32

Well, DGC have been known to share a bed with DH and I, and even DD thinks that opening her stocking on Christmas morning entitles her to sit cross legged at the end of the bed. smile.

Nw DD is the one for pillows. She has four, all under her head.

harrigran Sat 18-Jan-20 20:19:54

I sleep on five pillows.

kittylester Sat 18-Jan-20 20:35:03

We have 3 each! 1 for sleeping - a memory foam, DH reads on 3 then discards 2 but I read lying down. We both use 3 for tea drinking and news watching in the mornings.

annodomini Sat 18-Jan-20 20:42:49

I use two for reading in bed but on medical advice have gone down to one for sleeping. I thought I'd find that difficult but still sleep comfortably.
