Anyone have a good pillow that they really like? Where did you buy it?

I sleep on my side and my pillow sucks. I wake up with my arm asleep and can never get comfortable.

Should I go down or cotton? What would be a good store to check some out?

Thanks

I like the Sertapedic "Won't Go Flat" It's polyester fill with a foam center that keeps it from squashing too much (hence it's name). I always sleep on my sides. Wal-mart has it for about $9. I've tried various pillows over the last few months, some cheaper, some much more expensive. This one seems the best for me so far. And with Wal-marts return policy you can always take it back.

Costco currently has the ComfortZen PureGel memory foam Pillow that is very nice. Got one for Christmas and really like it.

I would like to find a giant oval of silicone gel. As long as it doesn't leak.:cool:

I have a Tempurpedic and think it is the best thing in the world. I have slept so much better since I bought it about six years ago. I actually have two I liked it so much.

Try one of these. They are insanely expensive, but worth every penny.

I've used this one for the past 7 months and it's the best pillow I've ever owned. At $49 it's the most expensive too so far.

I would like to try out some of the expensive foam pillows, but I'm cheap. I have a size 8 head and can wear out a cheap foam pillow from Target in a month.

I bought myself a buckwheat pillow off Amazon. I've been sleeping well with it. Heavy though, won't move on you. The buckwheat fill allows me to adjust to a support profile that suits me.

Koreans have been using this for centuries.

+3 on the buckwheat hull pillows. I've been using them for about 15 years.

I was waking up in the middle of the night with terrible headaches caused by sleeping with my neck in the wrong position. So I tried all the various pillows - down, memory foam, etc. I spent hundreds of $ trying to find something that would stop the headaches.

I finally stumbled across the buckwheat hull pillows and I haven't had a headache since.

And they are WAY cheaper than the memory foam pillows!

Here's a couple of links:

+1 for the Tempurpedic pillow. Mine is the King Countour one, not sure the model, it has the low bump and the big bump and it is by far the best thing for my sleep I have ever had. I had sleep apnea pretty severely, lost weight, spent the coin on the good pillow and could not be happier. There are products like it, but none compare to the density and comfort of it, I have tried several.

Yep. Visit your Tempurpedic store and check out their various models. Mine are kinda sorta shaped like a conventional pillow. They're well worth the money.

I can't get a decent night's sleep at a hotel any more.

Tempurpedic neck pillow. 'enough said.

I had 3 disks fused in my neck a couple years ago. I won't leave home without this pillow.

I tried the Tempurpedic but I didn't like that your body heat was necessary for the foam to soften to contour to your head. Took much too long in the wintertime when we sleep at 68* and even longer in the summertime with the AC on. Even without this "issue" my ears would seal against the pillow and I would have an earache when I woke up. I chalk this up to the fact that your ears grow as you age - perhaps if you're in your 30's it doesn't happen.

Down pillows are the best. Not cheap but what I like.

Note: all down not a feather/down blend.

Down or feather pillows are my favorite.

Another vote here for buckwheat hull filling. Nothing better for warm weather sleeping, and the most comfortable pillow ever.

I have been sleeping on one of the Tempurpedic-style memory foam pills for 20 years now. The pillow is still as comfy as the first night I slept on it. They are worth every penny.

If you are allergic to feathers or even dust, stay away from down or feather pillows. I am not allergic to feathers but I still can't stand to lay my head on one.

When I had to go to a chiropractor about my messed up neck, he told me it was caused by not using a pillow that has neck support. With your shoulder on the bed and your head on the pillow, you neck is just hanging with no support and the muscles get tensed, pulled etc. Never been without one since.

Makes sense. :thumbsup: What type of pillow do you use, if you don't mind me asking? (I, too, have a messed up neck.)

My vote to. Can't beat a nice big down pillow.

Over 30 years ago I was having neck problems and could not find a pillow I liked. So I bought a big goose down pillow and took it apart in my kitchen (I would not advise this to others) so that I could get the right amount of down in it. 5 years later when I moved I was still finding down in corners of the kitchen. However, that pillow was a keeper. At some point I put a hypoallergenic cover on it. But I've had it all those years. It has traveled all over the world with me on business and vacations. Still no neck problems.

As I get older, I've found that I need a firmer pillow for a good night's rest. I've been using Tempur-Pedic's Tempur-Symphony pillow for over a year now and I really like it. My wife and I sleep on a Temper-Pedic Cloud Luxe mattress.

This pillow isn't cheap and you might think it's firm at first, but the support is great.

For a cheaper option, consider the Isotonic Indulgence. I think you can find them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Though it's not memory foam, it's an excellent pillow.

I use a CPAP so my pillow is very important to how well I sleep. I found the contoured memory foam pillows work best for me. It doesn't bottom out and need re-fluffing like most pillows.

After she saw mine, my wife got one also. She doesn't use a CPAP, but she really likes it too.
