Best Pillow For Side and Back Sleepers

Best Pillow For Side and Back Sleepers

Are you a side sleeper that's looking for a more comfortable pillow? Do you worry that there are certain pillows out there that are more harmful to side and back sleepers? If so, then you need to learn all you can about finding the best pillow for side and back sleepers.

Here's the good news: we have several to choose from! When looking for a new pillow, you want to make sure that you find one that's thick and firm.

See below for an in-depth guide on the best pillow for combination sleepers and why it's so important that you purchase a new one. 

What is a Combination Sleeper?

Perhaps you've been known to toss and turn throughout the night. Maybe you've been unable to find a comfortable pillow because of how many different ways that you sleep.

Some people sleep on their sides and back. Others sleep on their sides and belly. There are even some out there that perform a combination of sleeping on their sides, back, and belly, all in one night of sleep.

These are what experts refer to as "combination sleepers": people that have more than one preference on how to comfortably sleep. This isn't as rare as you think; in fact, most people are a combination sleeper in some variation, regardless of how much they prefer one over the other.

Pillows are an important piece to the puzzle, but they aren't the entire picture if you're looking to get better sleep. Make sure that you're prioritizing more exercise, cutting off caffeine intake at 3 pm, and turning off blue lights (such as your smartphones) at least one hour before bedtime.

Prioritizing these three things, along with a comfortable mattress and pillow, will reduce your tossing and turning throughout the night. The result will be waking up each day feeling refreshed.

What to Look For in the Perfect Pillow

If you're a combination sleeper, then what's the best way to find a pillow? How do you know when you've found the perfect solution to your problem? What makes for the best pillow for back sleepers?

The primary concern is making sure that your spine stays aligned while you lay down. If you sleep with your neck bent, for example, then you will likely wake up with shooting pain.

For that reason, you want to find a pillow with the right amount of firmness. Of course, if you don't find the pillow comfortable then its functionality won't matter; you'll have to do your Goldilocks impression and find a firmness-to-softness ratio that's "just right". 

That's why, here at Nest Bedding, our easy breather memory foam pillow has customizable firmness levels. We give you the cover and the fill, allowing you to put in the right amount to find the sweet spot. 

But here's the best advice we can give you for whichever way you sleep: have a second pillow. There is always a need for a second pillow to keep your spine in a perfect position.

If you're a side sleeper, then the second pillow should be placed between your knees. If you're a back sleeper, then it needs to be placed under your lower back. If you're a belly sleeper, then it should be placed on your lower abs. 

Why Nest has the Best Pillow for Side and Back Sleepers

Now that you've seen what makes for the best pillow for side and back sleepers, let's take a look at the biggest benefits that Easy Breather pillows can offer you. 

Multiple Options

Some people swear by memory foam, while others prefer a different pillow base. We have two options to ensure that our Easy Breather pillow fits your preference: memory foam and latex.

If you're looking for a pillow that conforms to the natural shape of your head and neck, then we highly recommend the memory foam.

If you want a bit more support than memory foam can offer, then we'd point you towards our natural latex pillow! Either way, it's a win for you.

Sleeping-on-a-Cloud Feel

If you're going to get as much rest as possible, then you want to feel as if you've just rested your head on top of a cloud.

We've perfected the perfect pillow to give you this sensation. Our Easy Breather natural pillows have materials with the sole purpose of providing support without sacrificing comfort. 

Even though we don't use any animal products on this pillow, it will have the look and feel of a down and feather pillow, which most people prefer.

Improved Breathing

As the name of our flagship pillow would imply, the design of our pillows is to give you as much support as possible and open up all of your breathing passages while you sleep.

With proper breathing patterns, while you sleep, you'll be able to achieve the most calming and relaxing rest you've had in years. 

Some experts even relate healthy breathing with producing more melatonin in your body, which can help you stay asleep longer (as well as fall asleep faster).
