Pillow Buying Guide

It is important to make sure your pillow gives your neck and spine the support it needs in conjunction with your desired comfort. Sleeping on the wrong pillow can result in headaches or a strained neck. Finding a pillow that not only supports your head but also your neck is crucial for a good night's sleep and your overall well-being.


Do you sleep on your back or stomach?

You'll need one soft or medium pillow that will offer support by gently moulding to the shape of your head and neck.

We recommend:

95/5 Pillow – Soft or Medium

80/20 Pillow – Soft or Medium


Do you sleep on your side?

You'll need one firmer pillow (or two pillows, depending on how broad your shoulders are) to keep your head supported and aligned with your spine. A firm bottom pillow and a soft top pillow could be an ideal option. 

We recommend:

95/5 Pillow – Firm (with or without additional Soft pillow)

80/20 Pillow – Firm (with or without additional Soft pillow)


Double Chamber Pillows

Double Chamber pillows offer the best of both worlds. They're ideal if you like a soft feel but need extra support. Double Chamber pillows are made with an outer layer of lofty filling for softness and an inner core of firmer filling for support.

We recommend: Double Chamber – Soft, Medium or Firm, depending on your personal preference.
