I am very fussy when it comes to purchasing bed pillows. I guess most people are as they are so vital to getting a good night's sleep. Otherwise, I toss and turn all night trying and failing to get comfortable. Worse, I am easily susceptible then to waking up with either a stiff neck, shoulder or back pain. It doesn't help that I am a very light sleeper. So begins my search for the best bed pillow for neck, shoulder and back pain.
My top 5 choices are based mostly on 2 main features. 1) Customer review ratings: these are people who have bought and used them personally so that's good enough reference for me. Reading through their comments, the pros and cons, is really valuable to come to a decision. 2) Another feature important to me is if they are allergen resistant. Just the thought of dust mites creeps me out!
It is perfect for any sleeping position - back, side or stomach. I also found it very comfortable when I'm lying down on my couch watching TV. It is resistant to dust mites, mold and other bacteria. The outer case is machine washable but not the inner foam part which you can just use a damp cloth to spot clean.
Due to proper support, it relieves neck and back pain, allows unrestricted air passage thus reducing snoring, and improves posture because its natural spine alignment.
Unique in its shape, the “V” section creates a cradle for your head lifting it away from the shoulders while your neck is supported underneath by the neck roll. If you want the pillow solely for neck support, then just flip it over to the bottom side. If you are a side sleeper, the side wings will help to relieve any pain.
For some people, it may cause some soreness as you get used to it. So you may need to increase using this pillow slowly alternating it with the previous pillow you were using as you get more comfortable with it.
It is easy to clean which I love. Just machine wash using the gentle cycle in cold water. Do not use bleach! Then tumble dry on low temperature. Do not iron, just line dry, and do not dry clean.
I'm not sure if these are standard or queen size pillows as I found 2 sizes listed - 17.7 x 7.9 inches (in the Amazon Product Information/Dimensions section) and 29.13 x 19.90 inches (on the product label photo at the top left). Even in the customer Questions and Answer section there were conflicting answers regarding the actual size.
On the Amazon website, it states that there is a 30-day money-back return guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied.
Except for the memory foam, it is machine washable in cold water, gentle cycle and hang to dry. Dimensions are King Size 25in long x 14.5in wide x 4.3in at the lower height and 4.7in at the higher height.
Best of all there is a 30 day refund, no questions asked guarantee, if you are not 100% satisfied.
The pillow measures the standard size of 17 x 15 x 5 inches (length x width x height) but there is a discrepancy as a customer reported the size as 23 x 15 x 3 inches (length x width x height) which is more in keeping with a queen size pillow.
The guarantee is a bit vague as the manufacturer states only that they will make it right if you are not satisfied. Not sure how exactly they will do that but one customer did report getting a refund.
