How To

Find the right pillow for you

Not getting the beauty sleep you need? You need a new headrest

  • Getting the rest you need is vital to starting your day well. And if you think you're not getting your beauty rest, it might be because you're using the wrong pillow. We've rounded up the pillows you need to use, based on your bedside manner.

    If you sleep on your back

    The most important thing when sleeping on your back, is supporting the natural curvature of your spine and your head, neck and shoulders. A good pick would be a goose feathers and down pillow that is firm but also comfortable. Tip: Place an additional pillow below your knees to reduce the strain on the back.

  • If you sleep on your side

    Make sure the pillow you use supports your spine and keeps it in a straight line. A nice cervical pillow can help with that by supporting your neck well and not changing the way your shoulders fall.

    If you tend to flip around a lot in bed, you need a nice, firm pillow that is designed to support the head, neck and shoulders while you change your sleeping position several times each night. Pick this Doctor’s pillow because its design helps put your body in the right sleeping posture, and ensures your sleep is undisturbed.

  • If you sleep on your stomach

    You need a pillow that is relatively flat so that your head and neck aren't strained by turning unnaturally on either side. Place another flat pillow under your stomach to help keep your spine in its natural position. Pick a thin anti-allergy pillow to ensure your breathing isn’t hindered.

  • If you have trouble breathing while sleeping

    Use a pillow that elevates the base of your neck to reduce any breathing problems you face while sleeping. Ideally, a good CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) pillow that is dust-free and hypo-allergenic should help.

  • If you like to curl up

    Use this if you’re one of those people who uses multiple pillows to prop-up your head and your knees. Replace the pillow army with a body pillow that has been specially designed keeping in mind the natural shape and contour of the human body.
