Purchasing The Right Pillow For Better Sleep

Purchasing the best pillow for better sleep

Pillow shopping can take little time if you do it right and know what you are shopping for. If you’re a combination sleeper, you will want to purchase pillows to support you in all your sleep positions. Your pillow should offer balanced support for your neck and spine, so the next time you shop online for new pillows, consider this checklist. Find out what to look for when purchasing the best pillow for better sleep.


Pillow loft means the height of your pillow. Once you can identify your sleep position, it will be easier to know what you should look for. If you prefer to sleep on your stomach, then your pillow height should be lower. Some side sleepers prefer high pillows, perhaps for hugging, while persons who sleep on their backs split between high and low. We recommend that you get a pillow to provide you maximum comfort in all your sleep positions.


Identify the type of sleeper you are and then be very picky about your pillow firmness. Side sleepers, stomach sleepers, and back sleepers will all require different firmness in pillows. Side sleepers should purchase a fuller pillow that fills the gap between the bed and their upper back and shoulder blades. Back sleepers need flatter pillows and stomach sleepers, a thin pillow.


Comfort is subjective to the individual and their preferences. It would be best if you chose your pillow based on your natural sleep position so that you can have the proper spinal alignment and support throughout the night. Compromising your cervical support can wreak havoc on your overall health over time, so a comfortable pillow is a great way to minimize that risk.


Your pillow should allow air to pass through instead of trapping heat. The denser your pillow filling, the less breathable it’ll be for your head and neck. The pillows that usually stay cool are those made of polyester or shredded foam. On your next pillow purchase, find the most suitable pillows for you and that is also breathable.
