How To Pick The Perfect Pillow

One of the most important aspects of finding the perfect pillow for you is to understand what type of firmness your sleep style needs.

First, ask yourself this simple question: 
Do you sleep on your back, side or stomach?

For back sleepers we recommend a medium filled pillow.  Think about it, if you’re sleeping on your back you don’t want your head to be too upright, but you also need it to be supported.  A medium filled pillow will help keep your spine in its natural alignment.

For side sleepers we recommend a firm filled pillow. If you sleep on your side you’re typically sleeping on your shoulder, which raises your body off the mattress quite a bit.  Because your body is lifted, you’ll need a firmer pillow to support your head. A firmer pillow will allow you to maintain a straight spine and is better for your neck’s alignment.

For stomach sleepers we recommend a soft filled pillow.  Sleeping on your stomach means that your head is already close to the mattress.  Therefore, in order to keep a straight spine, you don’t need much, which is why we recommend a softer, less filled pillow.
