To a person who suffers from allergies or asthma, the word "hypoallergenic" isn't just another trendy wellness term — it can mean the difference between sleeping comfortably and sneezing the entire night away. This list of the best hypoallergenic pillows on Amazon aims to help allergy sufferers the only way possible: by providing a comfortable pillow that can also block out common allergens like mildew, mold, dust mites, and pollen.
All of the pillows on this list have great reviews and are made with antimicrobial fabric — the ones that also come with allergen-free pillowcases deserve an extra gold star. There are comfortable pillows for back, side, and stomach sleepers, and there are even a few customizable options that let you choose the level of firmness that works best for you.
Whether you need hypoallergenic cooling gel pillows to help regulate your body temperature at night, a full body pillow that supports achy backs, hips, and knees, or a basic down alternative pillow that provides the softness of down without the allergens that can often accompany it, this list will serve you well.
Trade in your old pillow for a hypoallergenic version and never again wake up feeling like you've caught a cold overnight.
