The 9 Best Pillows On Amazon

Ad failed to load

Mattresses may take all the credit (or blame, depending on your experience) when it comes to getting a comfortable night's sleep, but finding the right pillow is way more important than you'd think. With so many different options out there, choosing one of the best pillows on Amazon is no walk in the park. But the decision-making process is worlds easier when you really take your personal sleep style (and preferences) into consideration.

Whatever position you tend to sleep in, or whether you struggle with snoring, allergies, or even acid reflux, there's a pillow that can help. For example: The best pillows for back sleepers typically include options with designs that cradle your upper body and have substantial side lobes to prevent you from flipping over. There are cooling gel pillows for sweaty sleepers, pillows with double contours for those dealing with neck pain, and a variety of memory foam pillows specifically designed to suit side and stomach sleepers. Of course, we've also dug up the best down option for traditionalists, as well as the best gel pillow money can buy.

No matter your budget, sleeping style, or preferred material, these highly-rated pillows from Amazon are here to give you a better night's sleep.

1Best Overall: Cool & Breathable Gel Fiber-Filled Pillows With A Hypoallergenic Bamboo Cover

No matter how you sleep — on your back, stomach, side — this soft bamboo gel pillow conforms to the shape of your head and provides long-lasting comfort. The ultra-breathable jacquard bamboo cover stays cool throughout the night and is resistant to allergens, stains, mold, and mildew. The pillows themselves are machine-washable, though they claim to be immune to stains or fading, as a plus. A perfect option for people who have asthma and other respiratory issues, these pillows are an Amazon's Choice product with a near-perfect rating.

2Best For Back Sleepers: A Pillow With A Trapezoid-Shaped Center That Offers Support

Sleeping on your back is considered one of healthiest positions for your spine and neck, but it isn't always easy to stay in one place throughout the night. This pillow is unique in that it's designed with a supportive, trapezoid-shaped center to cradle the head and neck, as well as side lobes to keep you from tossing and turning. Unlike a lot of other pillows, this one gives you the option of choosing among five sizes that include firm, gentle, and petite. It also comes in three designs: white, blue, and a funky green pattern.

3Best For Side Sleepers: An Extra-Firm Pillow With A High Gusseted Quilt Sidewall

These extra-firm density pillows have a 2-inch gusseted sidewall that gives side sleepers maximum support. They're filled with polyester fiber that helps them retain a high loft and the cover is made of 100 percent cotton. They come in three sizes: standard, queen, and king. You can also opt for firm or medium density if you prefer to sleep on something a bit softer.

4Best For Hot Sleepers: A Hypoallergenic Memory Foam Pillow With A Cooling Cover

One of the biggest complaints about many pillows is that they flatten easily — and once that happens, there's no turning back. Not so with this bamboo shredded memory foam pillow, which springs right back to life after you put pressure on it. Reviewers (more than 9,000 of them) love how this hypoallergenic material is resistant to allergens and dust mites and won't irritate allergies. Whether you sleep on your back, stomach, or side, this pillow provides neck and head support to prevent aches and pains. And sweaty sleepers will find a bit of extra relief, too: The cover is made with a breathable fabric called Kool Flow, which stays cool throughout the night.

5Best For Down-Lovers: A Luxe, Cotton, Goose Down-Filled Pillow That's Soft And Fluffy

Fans of traditional soft and fluffy pillows say this is one of the softest white goose down options you can find. It has 550-fill power (the higher the fill, the loftier it is, with 800 as the typical maximum amount) and a 100 percent cotton shell. Reviewers say the fill quality is excellent for back and side sleepers, but may be too much for stomach sleepers — something to note. It's great if you don't want a pillow that's too hard, and one spin in the dryer can help fluff it up if it gets too flat. Choose from an assortment of sizes in sets of one or two.

6Best For Snoring: An Elevated Wedge Pillow That Also Helps With Acid Reflux & Allergies

Finding relief from snoring, acid reflux, and allergies at night is possible — and it has a lot to do with how you sleep. This memory foam wedge pillow props you up in such a way that it promotes better circulation and airflow. It has a two-layer design: comfortable memory foam is placed on top of a base foam to provide more support. You can use it for your head or under your legs and knees to prevent back pain while sleeping. Every order includes one white machine-washable cover, with the option to purchase more, if you wish.

7Best For Neck Pain: A Memory Foam Pillow That Offers Three Different Profile Options

If you're waking up to a stiff neck more times than you'd like to admit, the culprit could be your pillow — and this neck pillow may just be your solution. Made from memory foam with a removable, machine-washable bamboo cover, this pillow is double contoured to support the specific areas of your neck and head where you need it most. It comes in medium, thick, or thin profile options, and the foam the brand uses is free from chemicals, like lead and mercury, that have been known to found in some lesser-quality foam pillows.

8Best For Your Skin: A Pillow That's Infused With Copper Ions

This pillow releases copper ions as you sleep, which is believed to have skincare benefits — one being that it doesn't cause any creases on your face, which can reduce the appearance of lines over time. It's infused with antimicrobial fiber fill and is described by reviewers as both "supportive and comfortable." Others say that, when sleeping on this pillow, their skin never gets hot at night.

9Best For Customization: A Pillow That Lets You Add And Remove Foam To Suit Your Preferences

Coop Home Goods, $60, Amazon

When it comes to sleeping, we all have different needs — they can even change from month to month. And this memory foam pillow, made with 40 percent rayon derived from hypoallergenic bamboo, gives you the option of adjusting its foam interior to suit the level of support you currently desire. It comes in standard, queen, and king sizes and has more than 14,000 reviews, with one reviewer calling it an "adjustable cloud" that's soft and conforming to the body.
