15 best sleep pillows

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

You can get a good rest during sleep. There is no doubt that a properly selected and high-quality anatomical mattress plays a vital role in ensuring this kind of rest. True, many people forget about the importance of such an accessory as a pillow. If you do not supplement the mattress with an individually suitable pillow, then the beneficial properties that the sleeper receives from the mattress will manifest itself only 80 percent.

Pillows have a number of distinctive parameters: height, stiffness, shape, filler, exterior material, price, etc. In today's article we will tell you which of them you should pay special attention to in order to make a choice that will ensure you a full, healthy sleep.

The experts ranked them based on user reviews and expert recommendations, selecting the 15 best sleep pillows.

What to look for when choosing a pillow for sleeping

  1. The form. Products can be rectangular, square or anatomically shaped (have collars). For those who sleep on their side, it is better to select anatomical ones with rollers of different heights. For everyone else sleeping in a different position, rectangular ones are suitable. According to orthopedic specialists, square pillows are not suitable for sleeping in any way, so they should be left in the past. This opinion is based on studies that indicate that a pillow should not be placed under the shoulders. Only the head and cervical region should be supported.
  2. Height. Again, one should proceed from the position in which the person is used to sleeping. If on the side, then the height should correspond to the shoulder width (approximately 10-14 cm). Measure from the neck to the end of the shoulder with a measuring tape or ruler. Those sleeping on their back or stomach should look at the lower pillows (8-10 and, accordingly, 6-8 cm). Remember that men need products more than women. The height also depends on the firmness of the mattress: the softer it is, the lower the product should be.
  3. Rigidity. When determining this parameter, it is again necessary to remember the posture during sleep. The hardest pillows are needed for those who sleep on their sides, as the cervical spine must be well supported. Medium-hard for sleeping on your back, and soft for sleeping on your stomach.
  4. Filler. Ensuring the correct position of the spine, as well as supporting ability, depends on the properties of the filler. The highest quality is considered to be anatomical and memory foam, latex and a special material Taktile. Such fillers support the head perfectly and do not lose their properties over time. The rest of the fillers in the form of feathers, down, padding polyester, buckwheat husks, etc. cope worse with the support of the head and cervical spine, as they crumple during operation. If you choose pillows with a similar filling, do not forget to change the product every six months. Be careful with natural fillers, because despite their environmental friendliness, they can provoke allergic reactions.
