And now for the long answer.

Finding the right pillow can be downright exhausting.

Our goal with this article is to help you take the guesswork out of finding the perfect pillow by putting popular styles to the test – in this study, we looked at over 40 of the most popular pillows on the market available, and evaluated them to find the best. We looked for pillows that would work for all types of sleepers (back, side, stomach).

For decades, I had been sleeping on whatever pillow I found at the department store when moving residences. I could never find the exact best pillow for me – some were too flat or too thick, too firm or too soft, too hot, or to rough. I took it upon myself to find the best pillow available on the market. It is worth noting that I am a combination sleeper and I rotate between sleeping on my back, side, and stomach. I was looking for a pillow that would be great for a sleeper like me.

I started by going through a bunch of lists of the best pillows – I scoured Amazon and direct to consumer sites to come up with a list of 8 of the best pillows on the market for all sleepers. We ranked the pillows according to the following characteristics:

  • Support / comfort
  • Fill
  • Cover
  • Temperature regulation
  • Return policy / warranty
  • Price

Overall, the best pillow I slept on by far was the Dosaze Adjustable Pillow. I enjoy sleeping on the Dosaze Adjustable pillow in all three sleep positions thanks to the adjustability of the loft and the medium-soft firmness. I also found it significantly cooler than the other pillows that I tested. I highly recommend this pillow as my top pick, especially for side-sleepers or people who sleep in a combination of positions. Here’s a summary of our final rankings:

The Bottom Line

We found that the premium memory foam the most durable and most comfortable – it provided the overall best balance of support and comfort. It is a bit more expensive, but it is well worth it because of the quality and durability.

This pillow is handmade in the USA and utilizes a proprietary open cell gel memory foam that promotes airflow to regulate your temperature and prevent overheating. I noticed that this pillow was noticeably cooler than other pillows.

You’ll also see that this pillow is a lot more reasonably priced than a lot of the pillows on this list – it’s a much better value than those other pillows and we found it actually be much more comfortable than pillows that are 2x or even 3x the price.

The Bottom Line

A lot of people are raving about this pillow and it’s not hard to see why. Apart from being vegan and cruelty-free, this pillow comes with an extra 1/2 lb bag of fill. You can use the extra stuffing to create a higher loft.

And the best part? The pillow comes with a 100-night sleep trial. This means that if you’re not completely happy with it during that period, you can let them know and they’ll allow you to return it for free. Then can even help you customize your fill to your preference.

PROS
Kapok fiber has a nice plush feel
Soft comfortable cover
Copper cover

CONS
X
No contour / orthopedic shape
X
Cover isn’t “smooth”
X
Runs a bit warm

The Bottom Line

This pillow is made with a combination of kapok, which is a natural fiber similar to cotton, and shredded memory foam. The benefit is that you get both the firmness of support and the softness of its fluffiness. The shape of the pillow is neither too high nor too low, so it can be easily adjusted for any sleeping position. An interesting feature of the pillow is that the cover comes with copper in order to help reduce heating and produce a more breathable effect. The only qualm one could say is the fact the grey color of the pillow is easily visible through white pillowcases.

Not the best trial

The Bottom Line

Sleep Number is a premium brand that commands a premium price in the sleep space, but for good reason. This premium downcomfort adjustable pillow is one of the best on the market.

The down feathers support your head and it really feels like sleeping on a cloud. A lot of reviewers call it the ‘best they’ve ever owned.’

This pillow is great for any sleep position. Whether you’re a side sleeper or you like sleeping on your back, you’ll find it easy to fall and stay asleep with this pillow because you can adjust it’s height with the multiple inserts. If we had one complaint, it’s the price and the fact that we don’t love the feel of the cover.
