HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT PILLOW FOR SLEEPING
Building your best night sleep also includes a good pillow. And the best pillow
is the one that meets your specific needs, preferences and sleeping
style. Consider the following as you shop for the perfect pillow for you.
Aches and Pains
Many people search for a single, magic pillow that will prevent neck pain; however, the best pillow for neck pain is one that supports a healthy posture and neutral spine. Depending on your sleeping position, you’ll need different levels of support and firmness from your sleep pillow.
Imagine yourself cozying up to fall asleep. What position do you get into? Understanding your sleeping position is one of the most important factors in selecting the best pillow for you.
- Side sleepers: The best pillow for side sleepers is going to look a lot different than the best pillow for stomach sleepers. For example, because side sleepers have extra space between their neck and pillow, they require with a pillow with firm support and a higher loft/taller profile. We recommend this side sleeper pillow from SHEEX for side sleepers needing more support.
- Stomach: Stomach sleepers will need a pillow with softer support and a lower loft/ profile. It’s important for stomach sleepers to avoid pillows that will cause the head to crane upwards, as this will result in an unnatural spine and subsequent back and neck pain.
- Back: Those who sleep on their backs will want a pillow with a medium loft to keep a natural spine. Although side sleepers make up 74 percent of the population, back sleepers will be pleased to know many traditional pillows are created with them in mind. If you’re looking to find the best pillow for back sleepers, this Standard Purple Pillow might just be a winner.
- Any position: If you’re looking for a body-conforming memory foam pillow, look no further than the Tempur-Pedic Pillow. While it’s ideal for stomach and back sleepers, this plush pillow gives you a cloud-soft spot to rest your head. This Tempur-Pedic pillow also cooling technology to keep you feeling refreshed and comfortable as you sleep.
Speaking of cooling technology, hot sleepers will greatly benefit from a cooling pillow. This Foam Standard Casper Pillow was purposefully crafted for cooling and has tiny channels distributed through the foam for continuous airflow circulation.
