Size, materials, density levels – all these things impact your sound (or not-so-sound) sleep. If you’re waking up tired or achy, you might want to take another look at that headrest. Scroll down and find your sleep style. Then decide if it’s time for an upgrade.

Pillow types for back, stomach, and side sleepers

Back Sleepers
Go for a medium density that will cradle your head. Overstuffed pillows guarantee a stiff neck in the morning.

Stomach Sleepers
Opt for a thinner pillow with low to medium density. Look for a high thread count that feels smooth on your face.

Side Sleepers
Light, natural down lets you bury your head without sinking straight to the mattress. Choose a medium to firm density to align the spine.
