The 10 Most Comfortable Pillows

If you're less than comfortable when you lay your head down every night, your pillow might be getting in the way of quality sleep. A great pillow really can make a huge difference — but choosing one of the most comfortable pillows is a balance of personal preference and learning what works.

If it's been awhile since you've perused the pillow aisle, there are way more options now than ever before. Luckily, most are specially designed for your sleeping position. If you're a side sleeper, for example, you'll want to choose a pillow that fully supports the gap between your neck and the bed. A medium firm pillow with memory or shredded foam tends to be your best bet.

For back sleepers, you also need to think about head and neck alignment. The pillow shouldn't push your chin forward or let your head fall back. A contoured design gives your neck extra support since the pillows shape mimics the curve of your spine.

Stomach sleepers: We didn't forget about you. Often, tummy sleepers don't want an overstuffed marshmallow of a pillow — in fact, it's best to find a super flat or adjustable cushion. That way, you get a bit of extra padding without throwing your neck completely out of whack.

No matter which way you sleep, check these out and you'll definitely find the most comfortable pillow of your dreams.
