We at Improvements believe that everyone deserves to sleep peacefully each and every night, and, until recently, didn’t realize the importance of the pillow! So we decided to do some digging into the science of sleep support. Here is what we found out about the best pillow for side sleepers, the best pillow for back and neck pain, and more:
A Pillow for Each Sleeping Position:
Side Sleepers: The best pillow for side sleepers is a bulkier, firmer pillow that provides alignment and fills in the gap between the head and the neck. A total body support pillow is also a great way to make sure your entire body is in proper place as your rest.
Back Sleepers: This pillow works well for all sleepers, but especially well for back sleepers since it encourages proper spine alignment.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers should use a soft (usually 100% down) pillow that is nearly flat and whose filling can easily adjust as you move your head and neck throughout the night.
Back and Neck Pain: This body pillow may provide relief for those suffering from chronic neck and back pain. Its proprietary polyester fiberfill recovers from compression quickly and helps distribute weight evenly. The best pillow for back and neck pain is one that is not too soft, and not too firm, but something in the middle that will provide comfort just the right amount of comfortable support.
Stress-Ease: This 10-in-1 bed pillow can be used by side, back, and stomach sleepers. You can rest comfortably in any position.
Heat Reduction: For those who tend to overheat during the night, this pillow will help cool you down. Its iCOOL steady memory foam technology makes it cooler than traditional memory foam!
Anti-Snore: Stop keeping you and your partner up at night! An anti-snore pillow with convoluted foam helps reduce snoring by maintaining head and neck posture. This keeps your airways open, smoothing out the breath, and helping you achieve that peaceful night’s sleep you’ve been dreaming of.
Total Body Support: If you prefer to nap or sleep sitting up, or just enjoy lounging in bed with a good book, then you’ve met your match. The BedLounge & LegLounger are adjustable and have an infinite number of settings. This wedge pillow supports the back, hips, legs, and feet and can be used in several different positions based on your activity; sleeping, working, reading, or reclining. It can also be set up on the floor. And finally, this U-shaped pillow envelopes your body to keep it in place and provides head-to-toe support.
Hypoallergenic: Those with allergies or asthma should use a pillow that fends off bacteria and reduces mites.
May you have many dream-filled nights!
