The Best Pillow For Every Type of Sleeper

Royal Therapy Memory Foam Pillow

The Royal Therapy Memory Foam Pillow is our choice for the number one overall pillow, and it’s also Dr. Winchel’s recommendation. It comes filled with shredded memory foam to provide exceptional contouring. The result? A night of proper spinal alignment and pressure point relief.

Parachute Down Alternative Pillow

Measuring in at 3 inches thick, Parachute’s Down Alternative Pillow falls within Dr. Winchel’s recommendations for back sleepers. She tells us that with anything too thin, your head can fall back, but with something too thick, “your head might be propped up too far forward.”

Best for back sleepers

Brooklyn Bedding Talalay Latex Pillow

“Stomach sleeping can lead to neck, shoulder, and back pain if the head and neck are elevated too much,” Dr. Winchel tells us. As a result, she recommends that stomach sleepers seek out a thinner pillow. Brooklyn Bedding’s Talalay Latex Pillow is available in two lofts, low and high.

Best for stomach sleepers

Original Casper Pillow

Made with a polyester microfiber fill, Casper’s Original Pillow offers all of the premium comfort associated with down, but at a much lower price point. We love it for its clump-resistant nature, all you have to do is fluff it after use to restore it back to shape.
