Jaskaran Bajwa

Hi, i have been having stiff neck and neck pain when i get up in the morning. I have tried more than 10 different pillows nothing is working out. I have come to a point where i m scared of sleeping due to continues pain in the neck while sleeping, i am a back sleeper and have tempur pedic pro adapt firm mattress. Can u recommend what pillow should i use, height of pillow, firmness of pillow.

Thank you

Carolyn Melillo

At first I thought the AVacado would be my choice but after seeing the Eli and Elm that is a beautiful pillow.

Jessica Swearingen

I need the Leesa Pillow in my life! Looks and sounds amazing!

Marie Smith

Yay! I really like the Casper pillow.

bobbi cobalt

I like the Casper since it is an Editors Pick and has great construction materials plus a 100-day trial.

Psalm 91

My hubby is a back sleeper sometimes so he would like the Avocado for its firm feel.

JAY

The Avocado looks nice. I've been wanting to try a pillow with Kapok filling. Thanks

Angela Bauer

The leesa looks really nice with that comfort on top and removable inner pillow. I sleep on my back and it's hard finding a comfy pillow ,glad you made this video!

Amber Hambrick

Oooh i needed this! Thank you for this information ?

Katie Mason

Need help! I am mostly a back sleeper, but end up on my side, too. I tried the Casper pillow - too wide/deep (not the length) and too hard (the firmness was as expected. The pillow itself was heavy and hard.). I also tried the Brooklyn Bedding Talalay Latex pillow - perfect size, but still seems too hard. I ended up with pain at the bottom of my neck between my shoulders.) I have been using the My Pillow for about a year and hate it because of 2 things. 1. Every time I move (whether I get up to go to the bathroom or getting ready for bed or just roll over, it seems) I have to fluff it This is why I hate adjustable pillows. 2. I can feel whatever the pillow is filled with - another reason I hate adjustable pillows. Having said that, I'm not a fan of memory foam pillows - too hard and heavy. I was looking at the Coop pillow and while adjustable, I wonder if - because you get extra stuff - does it have the same problem that My Pillow does? Yikes! Help!!

poweralleys1

Like the Leesa hybrid. As a hot side sleeper its cooling gel side and adjustable loft sound great

Steven S

I've had my Harmony for almost a week now and love it! I also sleep on a Purple mattress so I know all about that grid technology! I am a back sleeper 90%/side 10% and I love how I can cradle the pillow and not feel stiff like my old Original Purple pillow.

Robin Weidner

All great pillows, but all but one are too firm and flat for me. I need soft and plush with a nice loft as a side sleeper I REALLY LOVE THE ELI & ELM I love a pillow that has a contour and I like the sheared material . but these are all great options for my dad who sleeps mainly on his back. Thanks for the reviews.

Nidhi Chauhan

Casper form pillow sounds perfect for me. I am a side sleeper and sometimes back sleeper too. High density and low density poly form sounds great.

Ashton Speakthunder

I love the avocado and eli & elm pillows since they are ecofriendly and adjustable. The birch sounds great as well since it is organic.

Natalie Taylor

The Casper is best for me since I am a side sleeper.

Blue Moon

My choice would be the Purple Harmony since I like the latex option 6 1/2" high

Brandon Bynum

I liked the Leesa hybrid pillow in this video! The quilted side looked so fluffy and comfy! And the other side with the cooling gel sounds so nice for the hot nights!

Lucinda Knelsen

This is a cool video! Somehow you make all the pillows look comfy!

Sean Flynn

The Purple Harmony looks like a high tech pillow. I would like to try it out just to see what it feels like :)

Jack Jones

The casper or the tempurpedic are the ones I would look at for back and side sleeping.

Wanda Roberts

I like the Avocado based on the fact that you can adjust the fill if necessary!

Mufferaw P

The Eli and Elm looks great! Great video too!

Nicole Bryant/cannon

i like the tempur pedic because you can flip for different firmness

LegacyStar

The Eli & Elm sounds great and since you're using it yourself Sarah it must be good.

Maria Johnson

The Casper sounds perfect for me as a side and back sleeper. And the Leesa for the cooling side..I'm a hot sleeper this pillow may help.

Ashlee Sweeney

I own the Eli & Elm, it's fabulous! I'd definitely be interested in trying the Purple Harmony, it looks intriguing and it's recommended here a lot.

Jill Ali

I would love
to try the Eli and elm! I’m a side sleeper and could never find a pillow that meets my comfort level. Especially with having scoliosis. This is good info!

Jennifer Serkey

I would love to try the Purple Harmony Pillow. I have the Original Purple pillow and I love how it stays cold to the touch. I think I would prefer the Harmony because of the higher loft.

Monkey Mogul

Always interesting to watch. Even though I'm not much of a back sleeper. Casper looks koosh.

biggestbrowneyes

I like the Avocado Green Pillow with 100% Organic Cotton . I need a firmer pillow and the price is very good also !

Valerie Haack

I could not decide, I would love to try them all! And probably will ?

Lisa Weeks

Wow that looks so comfy i like my pillow inbetween my head and shoulder this looks amazing for that

Stephanie Wolk

Lots of nice pillows here! I'm kind of drawn to the Temper-Pedic Symphony's dual design. I like that you get two different types of surfaces for different sleeping positions.

Seth Karim

I’m not a back sleeper but the Purple Harmony seems like the perfect pillow for me. I like Talalay latex with the higher loft for side sleeping

Christine Monet Johnson

The Eli & Elm pillow looks perfect! I love that it's organic AND great for combo sleepers :)

pcmacintyre

I'd go for the Tempur Pedic or the Caspar Foam since I am a combo sleeper.

Richard Torres

Purple all day

sam m

I liked them all. I am a side back sleeper so this was definitely for me. I love the tempurpedic one you showed that has the little arch for back sleepers to support the neck and flat on the other side for side sleepers. That one is made especially for people like me. The only thing else to worry about is trapping heat. how hot it sleeps.

sam m

the one you have at home looks like a pillow for pregnancies. . . which you did a video about to! but you are not pregnant. so i trust that one!

MICHAEL CHEVILLOT

I like the Tempur Pedic because of its dual design.

Thomas Harrison

Can't decide between Casper, Purple, and Elm. I sleep on my back and sides.

dstephani

I’ve been wanting to try out the Leesa mattress and pillow. I like how the pillow has different sides with variable firmness.

Coleen Osmond

This was a great line up video comparison with lots of info. Even though im not a back sleeper i am really curious and want to try the Eli & Elm side sleeper pillow. I love that it has a shredded fill that can be adjusted for my comfort level.

pam oakes

Love the Eli and Elm since I’m a combo sleeper. Mostly sides but still spend some time in my back. This would be perfect. I like that it has pieces instead of a slab of foam.

Lisa A

The Birch pillow with the wool and latex looks great. My dad is currently looking for a new mattress and pillow and I like they offer a 100 day trial

tjhall1000

i will look into that leesa pillow. it sounds amazing, and cooling is such a love to me

Craig Dorler

Solid list of pillows ?. They all seem pretty great. I think the first ones I would try are Purple Harmony and Eli & Elm.

Corena Leigh

I am a side/back sleeper and these sound great for me. The Casper sounds perfect.

Jimmbay1

Very nice pillows, great video & content. I thank you for all you do...

cutiehoneyful

Love it, looks really comfortable. :)

Sach S

While I love my Eli & Elm pillow very much (the best pillow I've ever owned), the pillows in this list are good too! Leesa's flippable pillow would be my next pick because of the dual sides and cooling gel pad. Casper also sounds interesting because of both high and low density foam. Avocado Green Pillow also sounds good because I can adjust. Great list!

Nat Filby

I would prefer the Eli & Em adjustable pillow, I’m more of a combo sleeper

jaguarlady1

ohhh these pillows are awesome! mostly a side sleeper so the Eli & Elm and the really neat ergonomic design might be best for me, or the Casper foam pillow since they both offer pressure relief, thank you for this great review!

Rosie Stewart

My boyfriend loves back-sleeping! The avocado is really interesting because it’s ecofriendly!

jeff

The leesa hybrid pillow sounds like a wonderful way to keep cool through the night.

Jennifer Phillips

I like that the Eli and Elm is adjustable and has 100% cotton, but the price is a bit steep for me.

Ghetto Mastah

As a combo sleeper who can't stay in one position the Eli & Elm looks really interesting! I like that you can adjust the filling!

CARINA VEE

The purple pillow looks super comfortable. ?

rm

The Leesa looks very interesting. The flexibility and cooling capabilities are of interest. I'm going to go look for more details on your website.

Kris Furtney

I am all about green so love the eli & elm, Avocado and the Birch. ???

Maria Johnson

The SpineAlign Pillow looks awesome. I like that it can be adjusted by moving fill around and that it has different lofts in one pillow. Thanks for the great review!

Janice Myrick

Really great review with a lot of choices I never knew about. I'm really interested in the SpineAlign pillow.

Lucinda Knelsen

The Bear Pillow looks very nice too and I really want to try the natural Avocado so I could adjust the fill.

MICHAEL CHEVILLOT

Great review!!! I like the Tempur Neck Pillow the best, but the Bear Pillow looked like something I would like to try as well.

Jimmbay1

Great video & content. I thank you for all you do...

pcmacintyre

I'd like to give the Bear pillow a try. It sounds great.

Bailey Greene

Can I please get a personal pillow recommendation? I have such a hard time sleeping :(

ME and MY siblings

Please answer what do you recommend for back pain

Ashlee Sweeney

I might have to try that Tempur-Pedic pillow since I sleep on my side so much now. I would love to try the Kapok pillows, but I have so many tree allergies that I might not be able to withstand it in my bedroom.

Jennifer Serkey

Nice lineup of pillows! I would be most interested in the Bear Pillow, specifically for its cooling properties. I like the description of a "refrigerated pillow".

Cindy Browder

Hi Sara, I’ve watched many video reviews and finally decided to take you up on your offer to make a suggestion. I am primarily a back sleeper. I tend to get neck pain from the wrong pillow. Currently have My Pillow and really dislike how it doesn’t hold its shape. I want something that supports my neck with a soft, but supportive feel. Adjustability is nice but not necessary. Any thoughts? Thank you!!

Carolyn Melillo

The Bear and the Avacado pillow look so nice. i love a loftier pillow.

Jennifer Phillips

The Avocado sounds pretty nice as does the SpineAlign since I could adjust them.

Seth Karim

Since i got my Aurora mattress i haven’t had any back pain when waking up but neck pains from time to time. I think i need a pillow to properly support my head and neck and i think the TempurNeck would help with proper neck support and keeping my spine aligned. And its memory foam which i love

Craig Slocum

I like the natural curve pillows because I'm a side sleeper with a history of back and neck pain. I also sleep with a pillow between my legs for good spine alignment

Robin Weidner

Just like the their bed, I really love the Layla pillow. I hope to own either or both someday, Thanks for all your reviews

Nikki sones

I would love to try the avocado pillow. Sounds great

Lucinda Knelsen

The Nolah Air Fiber looks like such a comfy pillow...

Stephanie Wolk

I am most interested in the Layla Kapok pillow. I really like how lofty it is but the fill is adjustable so you can get just the perfect amount of loftiness for your own comfort level. I am also pleased with the fact that it is covered with that copper infused stretch knit fabric to kee p it nice and cool.

Andrea Garcia

I'm mainly interested in Layla and the Tempurneck. Both look comfy!

MissAmy76

The Layla kapok pillow looks heavenly to sleep on!

Jim Morack

This would be the one place where I would spend a bit more money to get what I wanted. The Tempur Neck has all the options that would make it worth my while.

Jordan Ross

My first choice would probably be the Kapock pillow for back pain but if the avacado pillow is also good for combination sleepers. Which pillow is better for back and neck pain.

WalkingLegacy

Have you reviewed the authenticity 50 pillows yet? Their sheets are amazing but I am not sure I like memory foamed stuffed pillows.

Nat Filby

I would like to try the SpineAlign pillow because of the adjustable fill.

Coleen Osmond

This was a great line up of pillows and even though im not a back sleeper i am looking in to a couple from your list because i can adjust the fill level. Thanks for a great review

Wanda Roberts

I personally do not like the foam pillows, I have tried many. I am very interested in the Layla with it's adjustable fill and copper infused outer cover. I am on the petite side and the adjustable fill is an exciting feature for me! The trial period is an added bonus as well.

bobbi cobalt

I like the Tempur Neck the best since I sleep on my side. The Layla and Avocado are my next favs. Great review, Sarah!!

Sach S

I would love to try cooling Bear Pillow. It looks lofty and supportive. Nolah AirFiber looks great for my stomach sleeping hubby.

Angela Bauer

I'm thinking I would like the spinealign. I do seem to like the less thicker pillows but I haven't tried many yet, the nolan airfiber might be a great choice too but I'm not a tummy sleeper, now the casper since im a back sleeper might be perfect!!

Gus1Gus1

Great reviews! I have back pain, but honestly didn't know that there were pillows marketed as being able to relieve back pain. I thought that was mainly the arena of mattresses.

Cindy Harbor

Avocado sounds great with the organic cotton!

Craig Dorler

I've been wanting time try the Layla kapok pillow for a while. The Avocado sounds nice too.

Stephen Ouellette

Fortunately i don’t have much back pain but I’m glad there’s some relief out there

Psalm 91

These are wonderful picks for my hubby who has back pain. The Tempurneck sounds great since he is a side sleeper.

Amber Howland

Layla looks amazing ?

Brandon Bynum

I like the Avocado Pillow for its all natural materials and ability to adjust the amount of fill inside.

Terry Riley

The Layla sounds really great but I not sure I care for the cover. I thought about a TempurNeck but worried about the memory foam being too hot. Spine Align looks interesting though. There's the Nolah. I like that one. I wouldn't buy the Casper for my head, but I would but it to put between my knees to help my knee pain. Ok, never mind Nolah. I am going with the Bear cooling pillow. I love that it is good to use in multiple ways. Thanks for a great review on pillows. I never know which way to go.

Jessica Swearingen

The TempurNeck sounds like a great option for me as a side sleeper. Fortunately, I don't suffer from back pain but If I ever run into that issue, I know where to go to get the best reviews. Thanks Sleepopolis!

Sean Flynn

Tempurneck is my pick being a side sleeper. It looks very comfortable

Rachel Beltz

I've never tried anything from Nolah, but maybe it's time! As a stomach sleeper I've been stuck with pillows elevating my head too much.

Corena Leigh

I love a memory foam pillow for extra support as a side sleeper. Do you guys ever do pillow giveaways?

Karen Bergenholtz

I have the Layla and it isn’t for stomach sleepers. Seems good if I slept on my back

jaguarlady1

I am in need of a new pillow, keep waking up with neck pain so would be either the Tempurneck since I am a side sleeper or the SpineAlign Pillow, both look and sound amazing...thank you for these reviews !

9 479 views | 9 Mar. 2019

Getting up in the morning

Getting up in the morning can be the toughest thing to do for some of us. There are many reasons why that is: Not enough sleep, a bad mattress, stress, etc. Poor sleep can be attributed to many factors, but today, we will address sleeping posture to reduce back pain.

Its the first thing we’ll want to do. Before we get a new bed, new pillows, a lumbar roll, any of that stuff, we will want to know how to sleep, so that all those items will be used effectively.

We will go over Back, Side, and Stomach sleeping and see which is best for back pain.
