You spend a considerable amount of time resting on them so you should at least make sure you’re using the right kind. Pillows, that is. Experts say to replace a pillow once every two years so that you get your best possible night of sleep. But picking out a pillow often depends on a slew of other factors: your sleeping position, allergies and possibly even orthopedic needs. Don’t lose sleep making your decision - here are five pillows that should fit about every sleeping position and need.
Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow
These pillows from Beckham Hotel Collection seem to combine all the qualities you want in the perfect pillow. They’re made from a super plush gel fiber but still maintain a no-shift construction. They’re ideal for allergy sufferers. They’re fade and stain resistant. And they’re machine washable.
Coop Home Goods Premium Adjustable Loft Pillow
What’s an adjustable pillow? Good question. This pillow mixes memory foam and microfiber for its filling. You have access to the fill area, so you can remove or add filling as needed. (Yes, every pillow comes with a half pound of additional filling just for this very reason.) It also comes with a 100-day guarantee so if you’re not happy, just return it - no questions asked. (Other than your question about “what is an adjustable pillow.” We gave you that one for free!)
EPABO Contour Memory Foam Pillow
If you’re new to memory foam pillows, they can take getting used to. But once you get the hang of it, you’re in for some truly restful nights. Plus, the foam construction aids with air circulation, keeping you cooler and drier during the night. It works great for side, stomach and back sleepers.
AmazonBasics Down Alternative Bed Pillows
These pillows from AmazonBasics come with a down alternative fill that - unlike pillows made from down feathers - are friendly to allergy sufferers. They’re more plush than firm, which makes them ideal for back and stomach sleepers.
Vesgantti Orthopedic Pillow
What makes this pillow worth the extra coin? It’s designed with individual pocket springs - like a mattress - to provide the right support to the neck and head. Consumers who describe themselves as “difficult” when it comes to picking pillows praise this model as a life changer.
