I am often asked to make some recommendations on the best pillows we carry for certain sleep positions. So, today I am going to make those recommendations. Sleep Well! Live Well!
Best Pillows for Back Sleepers
Back sleepers need a pillow that provides medium to medium/firm support so that the head is supported in softness all night long. A back sleeper must have a pillow that has a combination of a soft feel with the support needed to relieve the pressure that the head can put on the spinal cord.
The Phoenix Down ® 75% White Goose Feathers/25% White Goose Down Pillow is a premium luxury pillow commonly found in Four Seasons ® properties. This pillow provides medium support and great comfort all night long. The Phoenix Down ® 75/25 White Goose Feathers and Down Pillow is one of the most popular and least returned pillows sold by PacificPillows.com. And, this is one of the pillows that I sleep on at home.
Down Etc. ® has done a great job manufacturing high quality durable down and feather pillows. In the last 5 years Down Etc. ® has established a great reputation in the hospitality industry and their pillows are now featured in many of the finest properties in Las Vegas. One of their top pillows is the Down Etc. ® Diamond Support Pillow. This pillow is found at several MGM/Mirage ® properties and is specifically featured in many rooms at the MGM Grand ® in Las Vegas. With a diamond pattern on its cover this pillow is designed to keep the feathers in the pillow contained so that the pillow has an even feel. The even feel of the cover combined with the down and feather fill really gives a great comfortable sleep experience. This pillow is slightly more supportive then the Phoenix Down ® 75% Feathers/25% Down Pillows mentioned above.
Best Pillows for Side Sleepers
If you sleep on your side you generally want a significant amount of height to your pillow as your head should be sufficiently elevated to avoid putting excess strain on your back and neck all night long. Most side sleepers prefer to have their necks level all night long and this requires a pillow with some height. As such, I have two great recommendations for side sleepers who would like a supportive night of rest.
This lineup of pillows comes in standard, queen and king sizes. They are filled with chopped memory foam that will mold to the contours of your neck and head while giving you a firm supportive night of rest. This is probably the best pillow for someone who likes a pillow that helps disperse heat during the night while taking pressure off of your back and neck. This is also a good pillow for back sleepers who prefer to have their head elevated off of the bed.
If you are a side sleeper and are looking for a down and feather pillow with a lot of loft that will provide a great night of sleep all night long, then a Phoenix Down ® Double Cover Overstuffed Pillow is likely the pillow of choice for you. This pillow will give you the traditional down and feather pillow feel while still giving you a significant amount of support to relieve pressure from your back and neck all night long. Additionally, this pillow has a double cover to ensure that you do not feel any of the feathers through the cover and have even support all night long.
Side sleepers also often find that cradling a pillow along the length of their body or tucking a pillow between their legs will provide the support they need to relieve strain on the lower back. Having a Phoenix Down ® Body Pillow in the bed with you is a great way to achieve this extra support all night long. I personally use a Phoenix Down ® 95% White Goose Feathers/5% White Goose Down 20” x 72” pillow to relieve pressure on my lower back.
Best Pillow for Stomach Sleepers
A stomach sleeper needs a pillow without a great amount of height. Most stomach sleepers find that they need a pillow that sinks down and conforms to the shape of their neck and head.
The Pacific Cost ® 95% Feathers/5% Down Pillow is a pillow that provides a soft cradling sleep experience. When a stomach sleeper lays their head upon this pillow they will find that their head will sink down towards the bed while being cradled in softness.
Great Pillows for Persons with Allergy Concerns
While all of the down and feather pillows carried by PacificPillows.com are hypercleaned and guaranteed to be allergy-free, some people just don’t want a pillow filled with natural fill. That is why PacificPillows.com carries a large assortment of down alternative and synthetic fill pillows.
The Restful Nights ® Trillium and Ultraflow Pillows are found in hotels worldwide. Many hotels under brands such as Marriott ®, Hyatt ®, Hilton ®, Ritz-Carlton ®, etc. feature Restful Nights ® Trillium and Ultraflow Pillows as the down alternative pillows of choice for their guests. In fact, many of the hotel rooms in these properties feature both a down and feather pillow by Pacific Coast ® and a down alternative pillow by Restful Nights ®. For a sleeper looking for a down feel without the down and feathers, the Restful Nights ® Trillium and Ultraflow Pillows are the perfect choices.
PacificPillows.com’s lineup of Pillowtex ® Latex Foam Pillows are a great choice as an alternative to down. They come in contour and traditional shapes. This lineup is a great choice for the sleeper looking for an alternative to down that will disperse heat all night long. You can even get Pillowtex ® Latex Foam Pillows in bolster, heart, neck and bone shapes.
Phoenix Down ® Dream Lover Pillows are a down alternative lineup of pillows comparable to one of our most popular down and feather pillows, the Phoenix Down 75% Feather/25% Down White Goose Down Pillows. The Phoenix Down ® Dream Lover Pillows have the feel of down and feathers providing medium support without the natural fill. These pillows work great for most sleep positions as they have a solid balance of loft and fluff. And, these pillows are often featured in Four Seasons ® properties as a luxury down alternative pillow choice.
