Importance of a Pillow
For many people, deciding which type of pillow they need is just as difficult as choosing a new mattress. Pillows provide crucial support to your head and neck at night, which affects how the rest of your body feels in the morning. The best pillow should relax you and relieve tension as soon as you lie down to ease falling asleep.
If you're waking up with neck pain or struggling with conditions like sleep apnea or snoring, it's time to invest in a new pillow. You'll give your head proper support, keep your body in healthy alignment and encourage deeper, higher-quality rest.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the different pillow sizes?
There are a lot of factors when choosing the perfectly sized pillow. How many you'll need, how big your bed is and how you'll use them all play a factor. A king size pillow or body pillow can make you feel enveloped and snuggled into a smaller bed. A standard or queen size pillow on a big bed can make you feel like you have a lot more room. There are no rules, other than to make sure you're sleeping perfectly.
What is pillow loft?
Pillow loft has three categories. Low loft, which is less than four inches thick, works best for stomach sleepers who normally sink deep into the mattress. Medium loft, which is between five and six inches, is great for back sleepers who sink minimally in the mattress. And high loft, which is more than seven inches in thickness, generally works best for side sleepers who lie on top of the mattress without sinking.
The height of the pillow is completely up to you, but different lofts provide different perks.
Why are pillow protectors and pillowcases important?
Pillow protectors are staples of a healthy sleep environment and extend the pillow’s lifespan. From zippered to waterproof to hypoallergenic, keep your pillows covered to prevent any breakdown in the material construction.
Pillowcases can be customized by coming in a ton of different fabrics and multiple pillowcase sizes. Common materials that make up our cases are cotton, polyester, Tencel and cooling fabric.
