The Best Pillow, No Matter How You Like to Sleep
A great pillow for side sleepers
We're a huge fan of the Xtreme Comforts Adjustable Memory foam pillow because its shredded memory foam interior never gets lumpy or deflates, so regardless of how much use this baby gets, your level of comfort doesn't decrease. We also love that you can remove some of the filling if it's too stuffed for your sleeping tastes!
A thinner pillow for stomach sleepers
If you're a stomach sleeper, you want a pillow with a low profile so you don't stress your neck and back. Xtreme Comfort's SlimSleeper fits the bill. It's a thinner version of the company's much-loved traditional pillow, filled with shredded memory foam that never goes flat or becomes lumpy.
From achoo to ah, snooze: a pillow for allergy sufferers
Got serious allergies? You need a seriously allergy-resistant pillow.
This is widely considered to be the best down-like product on the market. Parachute's hypoallergenic pillows use a microfiber that's a lot like down, but without all the sneezing.
A pillow where both sides are cool
Do you sleep better when your head is cradled by the coolest of pillows? Well, this is the pillow for you!
Filled with pieces of shredded latex, this pillow is cooler than traditional options. The different sizes and shapes of the latex pieces allows for greater air circulation and prevents the trapping of heat.
A fluffy down pillow for side and back sleepers
This Parachute product is in-demand for a reason (there's sometimes a wait list to get one, in fact). Fans say it provides abundant cradling, support and loft without taking up too much space.
The pillow also delivers an exceptionally fluffy, downy feel that's so important when you're shelling out for a luxury-level pillow.
An organic pillow for the eco-conscious
The Holy Lamb Organics Eco Wool Pillow is filled with Eco-Wool Batting and has a premium organic cotton cover. Reviewers love this pillow and offer some helpful hints for extending its useful life, such as tossing it in the dryer for a quick fluff it starts to get a little deflated.
A pillow that helps relieve back pain
Many back-pain sufferers swear by these firm-density pillows, pointing out that this buoyant filling means that you'll never have to fluff your pillow again. The pillow's outer zone gives the neck extra support, while the middle zone lets the head fall a bit, keeping the head at a natural angle.
A cozy, budget-friendly pillow
This pillow is an excellent option for people on a tighter budget. It has a hypoallergenic and antibacterial bamboo and polyester cover that keeps sleepers cool and a zippered inner chamber that gives you access to the pillow's filling. This means you can add or remove filling as needed for a firmer or softer pillow.
A body pillow for maximum support
Our heads aren't the only thing that need support as we sleep. This memory foam body pillow supports whatever body part needs supporting and has an extra-breathable micro-vented cover that keeps the pillow cool even when you're snuggled up on it.
We especially like the the memory foam filling holds its shape and doesn't need to be fluffed—important with a pillow this size!
