Finding the best bed pillows for you starts with your sleeping position
With finding a comfortable pillow being so important, there are an abundance of options available to suit all budgets and preferences. But that same abundance that makes finding the right pillows possible also makes it tricky to know where to start!
We recommend first considering the position you spend the most time in while sleeping. Are you a side sleeper or back sleeper, the most common sleeping positions? Or do you prefer a front-facing, stomach sleeper position? Perhaps you find yourself somewhere in between all three, and need a moldable pillow that will keep you supported as you shift throughout the night? Whatever best describes your sleep style, filtering by position is a great way to begin narrowing down your options.
Firm pillows and soft pillows in varying heights
Some people assume that how firm or soft a pillow feels is directly tied to how much fill is inside, and while that is an impactful factor it’s not the only consideration.
- Certain bed pillows materials, like down, are what most of us would consider ‘soft pillows’ even in loftier designs for back and side sleepers. Because of the properties of down itself, even the most supportive pillows will have a certain sinking in softness to them. This is the precise reason many sleepers choose down, but if you prefer your head sits more firmly atop the pillow, a memory foam or ergonomic pillow may better suit your needs
- Just like down is inherently soft, our contoured ergonomic designs are what most of us would consider firm pillows, even in low-profile heights
- Remember that while the overall height factors into the overall firmness and support level, material matters too. Do you want a flexible pillow you can easily shape to support you in any position? Both feather pillows and shredded foam pillows make smart choices. Want to ensure your pillow maintains its shape throughout the night? High fill down pillows and molded ergonomic pillows tick that box
Choose your pillow size
Now that you’ve considered the ideal height, support level and material softness, filter your options once more by size. We offer big pillows for bed in queen and king sizes, as well as standard and small bed pillows to help everyone in the family rest easy.
