A bolster is a long cylindrical cushion. Placed at the head of the bed, it is not only of aesthetic interest. Indeed, it can also be used for sleeping, hence the need to choose your bolster cover carefully.

Sleeping with a bolster

1. To raise your head

The bolster provides head support in addition to the pillow. It is ideal for people who like to sleep with their head up. It is also recommended in case of colds and blocked nose because this position helps to breathe better.

2. To provide better support

Positioned along the body, the bolster relieves the lower back for people who like to sleep on their side.

3. To contribute to the comfort of pregnant women

Like a pregnancy pillow, the bolster provides better sleeping comfort for pregnant women. In lateral position, it allows you to straighten your pelvis and better support your stomach, thus reducing the weight of the latter.

4. To relieve heavy legs

Place your bolster under your heavy legs to relieve them. When sleeping on your back with your legs elevated, your blood circulation gets better.

Why Choose a Silk Bolster Case?

1. Silk helps you sleep better

Thanks to its thermoregulatory properties, silk bolster cases offer real sleeping comfort. In addition, silk is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and anti-dust mite, without any chemical treatment. Therefore, you'll sleep in a healthy environment, free from all harmful substances.

2. Silk takes care of you

Silk preserves the beauty of curly, frizzy, frizzy and straight hair by reducing breakage, frizz and tangles. Silk also limits dehydration to sublimate your hair and your skin. The latter is relieved of acne and eczema problems and is less prone to aging.

3. Silk is easy to care for

Silk is a hardwearing fabric if cared for properly. You can wash your silk bolster case by hand in lukewarm water with a suitable detergent, avoiding rubbing or twisting it. Otherwise, you can also put it in the washing machine in a net for a wash in delicate mode at 30°C maximum. Do not hesitate to consult our maintenance guides to properly wash your silk pillowcase.

How to choose the right bolster cover?

For aesthetics and hold matters, the pillowcase must protrude about 25 cm on each side of the bolster.

It is estimated that for bolsters of 70 to 90 cm, for a single bed 1 person, you need a pillowcase of 43X140 cm.

For bolsters of 120 to 140 cm, for a double bed for 2 people, a pillowcase of 43x185 cm may be suitable.

Finally, for bolsters of 160 cm and more, for a Queen Size, King Size and Super King Size bed, you can opt for a 43x230 cm silk pillowcase.
