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.
