What Kind Of Pillow Do I Need ?

Good sleep is a result of a combination of factors, however, there is the most important one which can make or break your sleep and that is the quality of your pillow. In order to choose the right pillow , the first step is to know the kind of sleeper you are; a back sleeper, side sleeper, or, stomach sleeper.

In this blog, we will be breaking down the best options for every type of sleeper.

Back Sleeper

Back sleepers enjoy their rest better with pillows that provide proper support and alignment for the head, neck, and spine. Here are some considerations for choosing the right pillows.

  1. Medium to Firm Support: As a back sleeper, pillows with medium to firm support are the best choice for you to maintain the natural curvature of the spine.
  2. Contour or Cervical Pillows: Using a contour or cervical pillow is quite helpful as they are designed to cradle the head and neck while keeping the spine aligned.
  3. Thickness: The pillow’s thickness should be enough to support the neck and head without pushing them too far forward. It should fill the gap between the mattress and your neck.

Now, what are our pillow recommendations for back sleepers?

We would recommend getting a memory foam (Buy our memory pillow here) or latex pillow (Buy our Latex Pillow here) from E’sorae as this often works well for this purpose.

Side Sleeper

Side sleepers benefit from pillows that provide a medium to high loft to fill the gap between the shoulder and the ear, maintaining the spine’s natural curvature. Some factors to consider when choosing the right pillow for a side sleeper

  1. Medium to High Loft Pillows: Side sleepers should use pillows with a medium to high loft, typically between 5 to 7 inches thick. This provides adequate support for the head and neck, preventing them from sinking too low during sleep.
  2. Firm Support: Side sleepers need pillows with firm support to prevent the head from sinking too far down during sleep, which can lead to neck pain and stiffness.
  3. Contour or Cervical Pillows: Consider using a contour or cervical pillow, as these are designed to cradle the head and neck while keeping the spine aligned.

The best pillows for side sleepers. We recommend getting a medium to firm pillow such as our memory or latex pillow from E’Sorae Home. These provide the right level of support and contouring for side sleepers.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers have an enjoyable rest with pillows that provide a lower profile to maintain a neutral spine and avoid neck strain. Here are some considerations for choosing the right pillows.

  1. Low Loft Pillows: Stomach sleepers should use pillows with a low loft, typically between 2 to 4 inches thick. This helps keep the head and neck from being pushed too far forward, reducing strain on the neck and spine.
  2. Soft and Plush Fillings: Soft and plush fillings, like down or microfiber, can provide comfort and support for stomach sleepers. Avoid pillows with firm or dense fillings, as these can put too much pressure on the neck and chest.
  3. Adjustable Pillows: Consider using adjustable pillows that allow you to customize the height and firmness to your comfort level. This can be particularly helpful for stomach sleepers who experience neck pain or stiffness.

We recommend choosing one of these pillows; the feather pillow, a bounce back, a memory foam pillow or a five star pillow from E’Sorae. These provide the right level of support without putting too much pressure on the neck. The filling for the bounce back and five star pillows are microfibre while the feather pillow has a goose feather filling.

Lastly, remember that your personal preference plays a role, so it’s essential that you visit an E’sorae Home store to try out different pillows so you can find the one that best suits your comfort and support needs as a back sleeper.
