Finding the perfect pillow doesn’t have to be a pain in the neck (all puns intended) and, well, your night’s sleep is just about to get a whole lot better. Read on!
Let’s be honest, choosing a pillow is typically an absolute nightmare. You give it two seconds in the store and then ask an employee what they think. They usually have no clue. And probably don’t overly care. Head into Macy’s or Bed Bath and Beyond and you might as well just walk right out because there are way too many to choose from. So we’ve researched the heck out of dozens of the top selling and most popular options there. We purchased some of the top picks from other review sites and tested these ourselves (spoiler alert: you may be surprised at our Editor’s Choice).
Whether you’re a side sleeper, sleep on your stomach, are a back sleeper or just roll around in about 254 different positions all night long (read: us), there’s something in our list for everyone. Some you may have never heard of but, trust us, these are some of the most popular options out there. From soft to medium to firm (to ultra firm) and down, to memory foam, down alternative, and everything in between check out our picks for the best pillows for you and your bed (so far) in 2020.

3. The MyPillow Premium Series – Buy It Here
So this is the one that we’re 100% obsessed with. We’ve owned MyPillow for over 3 years now and after purchasing, literally, every pillow under the sun we think this one is really, truly the best. Now not get us wrong, their commercials make our eyes and ears bleed, but the product is pretty unbelievable. It can us the best neck support and we no longer woke up with a pain in our neck and, oddly enough, we were sleeping more sound throughout the night. Our favorite part, outside of it being a top pick for those with allergies, is that you can fluff it up however you like and it’ll stay like that until you re-fluff it again. Now this is our definition of ‘adjustable.’ When it arrives to your door it looks way smaller than it should. You’re supposed to unpack it and then toss it in your clothes dryer for 10-15 minutes. Once complete it’ll pop out nice and fluffy. They also offer a ton of different firmness options too. Learn more here!
– Best For All Sleepers –
4. The Xtreme Comforts Kool-Flow for All Sleepers – Buy It Here
Not really entirely sure what kind of sleeper you are? Or do you just thrash around all night long? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, this pick is probably your best bet. It’s been voted as one of the best for all sleepers by major reviewers like The Wire Cutter and USA Today and, well, we can see why. Its hypoallergenic and adjustable micro-vented bamboo shredded memory foam, so you get to decide how thick, fluffy, or flat you want it. And don’t worry, the memory foam is of the highest quality and durability so no need to stress that it’ll get lumpy or suddenly go flat on you! This one currently has 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and over 2,700 reviews (with over 75% of those reviews giving it at least 4 out of 5 stars!). Learn more here!
– Best For Allergy Sufferers –
5. The Aller-Ease Allergist Recommended Bed Pillow – Buy It Here
If you suffer from a case of the “ahh-choo’s” like we do, you’ll want to give this pick a whirl. It helps protect you from allergens in your pillow and you can even wash this one in hot water without worrying about damaging it, losing it’s firmness (or softness), shape, etc. Outside of all the perks, we’re also in love with the price. You can currently nab this one for less than $20. No, for real. That’s kind of unheard of. Don’t worry about the quality, the price doesn’t compromise that. In fact, it currently has 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and hundreds of reviews. Learn more here!
– Best For Hot Sleepers –
6. The Leesa Hybrid Pick – Buy It Here
It’s perfect for sleepers who change their mind (regularly) on the kind of pillow they’re looking for. It really is a total hybrid. On one side it’s a down-like quilted side. On the other side it has a more form gel comfort layer. And in the middle (yes, the middle) it has a removable insert between the two distinctive layers. If you’re always looking for the cool side of the pillow you’ll be pleasantly surprised each and every time you flip it over. Outside of helping you to get a great night sleep, it’s also known to help with the nappers out there too! Nothing beats a 10-minute power nap. Learn more here!
