Finding the right pillow is like finding the right spouse. It should comfort you, it should provide great support, and …quite frankly, sometimes it just takes some time to find the right one. Kidding aside, the right pillow is extremely important to your sleep. You can have a $5,000 mattress, but if you don’t have the proper pillow that compliments you, your sleeping style, and your mattress, it will not provide the restful sleep that it should.

Pillows comes in various sizes, are crafted from a litany of classic and modern materials, and can be as complicated to shop for as a new mattress. However, understanding the pros, cons, materials, and unique feel of each pillow will help to ensure you find the right pillow for you. The following pillow reviews have been individually sleep tested, researched, and vetted. If you’re looking for a pillow review that’s not on this list, but you think should be, please drop us a note via our contact form.

Looking for pillow protectors? We haven’t tested many yet, but we have tested the Slumber Cloud pillow cover (great for cooling and protection). We’ll have more pillow protectors coming over time.
