Let's be honest, when was the last time you thought about the pillows you sleep on? If it’s been a long time, know that you are not alone.
When we think about our sleep equipment, we mainly focus on our mattresses. They get a lot of attention and it is the most important investment you’ll make in your sleep. However, when it comes to sleep quality, your pillow is as important as your mattress.
Depending on how you sleep, here are some things to consider when picking out your pillow:
- Side sleepers may need a firmer pillow and a pillow on the thicker side. Look for one that’s as thick as the distance between your ear and outside shoulder.
- Stomach sleepers may need a soft pillow—or no pillow at all—underneath their head. A pillow under your stomach and pelvis may help prevent back pain.
- Back sleepers may need a flatter pillow, to keep your head and neck in alignment. Back sleepers may want a softer pillow—but if you have neck pain and sleep on your back, look for a pillow that provides additional support, while maintaining the softness that’s comfortable for you.
If you’re sleeping on a pillow that is worn-out and you're scrunching and folding it up every night to get comfortable, it’s time to get a new pillow. We have some great choices for your comfort and support, shop here!
