Best Pillows to Sleep Better 2021
Tuesday, 8 January 2019 | Eugene
A new year is upon us, and while many of us are eagerly awaiting the new advances in technology that will make our lives easier, why isn't there the same excitement about improvements to our sleep? In fact, pillows, mattresses and sleep products are always improving, so it only makes sense to update your bedding with the times. After all, what's more important than a good night's sleep?
What to Look for in a Pillow
When choosing the right pillow for you, there are a few key things to consider. The right pillow will be different for each sleeper, so it's important to think about how you sleep and what your needs are when making your decision. Here are a few key considerations:
Best Pillow for Side Sleepers
Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Orthopaedic Pillow
Side sleeping is the healthiest position for your spine, but standard down pillows can still lead to neck and back pain. The Therapeuetica Spinal Alignment Orthopaedic Pillow is designed to provide an ideal spinal position while sleeping, allowing you to wake every day without pain. With contours to support side sleepers as well as back sleepers, this may well be the last pillow you'll ever need.
Best Cooling Pillow to Prevent Overheating
Putnams Cervical Neck Pillow
If you've searched the web for a cooling pillow before, you've probably seen countless gel-topped pillows promising to keep you cool all night long, but these claims aren't all they're cracked up to be. When it comes to finding a cool pillow, ventilation and breathability are key, making the Putnams Cervical Neck Pillow the best choice around. Contoured to support your head and including recesses for ventilation and reduced ear pressure, this pillow is perfect for warm nights and those who run hot.
Best Pillow for Neck Pain
Harley Contour Neck Support Pillow
While most of the pillows on this list will help your neck pain, the Harley Contour Neck Support Pillow is our top pick for the job. Manufactured using liquid foam to provide precise support for the neck, this pillow is excellent for fully supporting the neck and shoulder gap, and is ideal for those with arthritis, upper back problems or a tendency to wake up sore. Great for side and back sleepers alike, this orthopaedic pillow is ergonomically shaped for proven comfort.
Our Most Comfortable All-Round Pick
Mediflow Water Base Orthopaedic Pillow
There's a lot of competition here on Health and Care when it comes to pillows, but there's only once choice according to our customer feedback: the Mediflow Water Base Orthopaedic Pillow. With a three-layer design including hypoallergenic fibre, thermal insulating foam and an adjustable water base, this pillow provides even, uninterrupted support, and is consistently praised by our customers for improving their sleep. Since this pillow can be adjusted with different levels of water, it can provide the perfect level of support for all users, making it ideal for back and side sleepers alike.
Our Pick to Avoid Snoring and Acid Reflux
Harley Bed Relaxer Bed Wedge Support Pillow
While most of us have slept flat on our back or side for most of our lives, this position may actually be causing a significant disruption to your sleep quality. The Harley Bed Relaxer Bed Wedge Support Pillow is designed to provide a slight incline for your upper torso, helping to alleviate snoring, acid reflux and more. While not strictly a pillow as it will require use of another pillow on top, this wedge can revolutionise your sleep, making it a crucial part of our list.
Sleep Better, Feel Better
Sleep is one of the most important things we do each day for our health, so if your old lumpy pillow is hurting your sleep, you owe it to yourself to upgrade.
