10 Best Pillows for a Good Night's Sleep

by
Jan 13th, 2017

Are you a restless sleeper? Do you often wake up with a stiff or sore neck? There’s a chance you can solve your sleeping woes simply by switching out the pillow you currently use with one carefully selected for your body’s kinks and sleeping preferences. We’ve done some research, and come up with ten pillows that could help you get a better night’s sleep.

Bedgear Dawn 1.0 Performance Pillow

This pillow doesn’t come cheap, but it sure is revolutionary. Ver-Tex fabric deflects heat and helps the pillow stay cool all night long. The Bedgear Dawn pillow conforms to any shape you imprint into at night, but resumes its out-of-the-box pillow shape in the morning.

Casper Pillow

Mattress startup Casper grew into a household brand name just three years after it was founded. The company’s pillow was designed using the same “obsessively engineered” technology as the mattress. It’s basically two pillows in one, and is best for people who like to sleep on multiple pillows and who like to hold onto something while falling asleep.

Cushy Form Pain Relief Knee Pillow

Do you tend to sleep with a pillow sandwiched between your knees? If so, do yourself a favor and try Cushy Form’s memory foam knee pillow. Designed specifically for people who suffer from sciatic nerve pain, this cooling pillow supports spine alignment. It also has impressions designed for your knees.

Dream Science Pillow by Martha Stewart

This pressure point relief memory foam pillow provides excellent support for side sleepers. VentTech technology promotes airflow, keeping the pillow cool. Martha’s Dream Science pillow is not cheap, but it’s high-quality and comes with a 15-year limited warranty.

Land’s End Memory Foam Pillow

If you know memory foam is right for you, try this Land’s End pillow. Its gusset shape provides more support than many memory foam pillows, and is designed to increase air flow. The pillow will react to your body’s shape as soon as you rest your head on it.

Outlast Temperature Regulating Pillow

Most of the pillows on this list are designed to promote air flow and provide cooling comfort. This Outlast pillow, embroidered with a cooling satin weave, is exceptionally good at dishing out these benefits. The hypoallergenic pillow also strikes a great balance between firmness and softness.

Simmons Beautyrest Pima Cotton Extra Firm Pillow

The Pima Cotton Extra Firm is ideal if you don’t want the side of your head cushioned by pillow fiber while you sleep. One side is flat, the other more rounded. Both are equally firm.

Another pillow with two different sides, this one offers something special for sleepers who change positions in the night. Fall asleep on your back against what feels like a traditional plush pillow. Wake up, flip the pillow over, and fall asleep on your stomach with the side of your face resting against its forming gel memory foam side.

Hypoallergenic synthetic down, 750-thread-count Pima cotton, and an antimicrobial inner pillow work together to make this pillow comfortable for back and stomach sleepers. Its resistance to allergens is an added advantage.
