Best Pillows

Outside of choosing the right mattress, finding the right pillow is a very close second. There are so many options on the market today, that finding the right one can be just as daunting as finding the right mattress.

When searching for the best pillow review, there are some criteria to look for that will help you find the right pillow that will provide you with comfort, quality, and overall longevity.

In our Best Pillow guide, we provide you a list of pillows we have reviewed and take a look at factors that may make a pillow better or worse for different sleepers. Taking into consideration construction and materials, comfort, our experience sleeping on them, and what type of sleepers may be best for a given pillow are all important criteria to select the best pillow.

Loft is an important consideration when choosing a pillow. If you often layer your pillows under your head during the night, you need a pillow with more loft – while if you wake up with too much neck or back pain, you may have one with too much loft.  In the end, you want to make sure you get the right pillow for YOUR sleeping preferences.

Take a look at the pillows below, we are constantly adding new ones to the list and you can check back here to see more reviews and feedback on many of the leading pillows on the market today.  For now, these are some of our favorite ones, that may become yours as well! Last updated Jun 11, 2020 @ 2:05 pm

Layla

($99 for a Layla pillow. Click here to get the best price on a Layla.)

The Layla pillow is a copper-infused pillow filled with a special mix of natural Kapok fibers and memory foam pieces that can perfectly work for most sleeping styles and fit unique comfort needs of most sleepers.

What makes this pillow stand out from other pillows is the addition of copper within its cover,  the use of Kapok fibers along with shredded memory foam which creates a cool, soft and comfortable sleep surface, and the ability to move its filling around to provide you with ideal amount of comfort and support depending on what position you sleep in.

The pillow is made of 70% memory foam pieces and 30% Kapok fibers and it always stays lightweight. Kapok fibers create the feeling similar to that of the overstuffed feather and down pillow while memory foam pieces offer a thicker and slightly firmer underlying support.

For us, this pillow is a perfect blend of softness and support and what we especially like about it is that it allows you to manipulate the filling to create the feel and support you need.

The Coop Home Goods pillow will perfectly support your head and neck without compressing too much, and it is breathable as well due to its unique cover and filling with small air pockets left between the individual pieces of memory foam.

The inner layer of this pillow contains dense, tighter compacted microfibers so it can provide you with the amount of support you need throughout the night and keep your spine properly aligned.

The Lull pillow feels like a traditional down pillow, but there is also a lot of responsiveness coming from its microfiber filling. It provides a very soft and fine, down like feel and has all pressure relieving benefits of memory foam.

If you are a back or side sleeper you will like this pillow, but if you are a stomach sleeper, you may try to sleep on the edges of this pillow as it may be too lofty for this position if you prefer sleeping on the middle.
