A pillow represents 30 percent of your overall sleep experience, but there is no one pillow that is right for every person. From sleep position to pillow material, this guide is designed to help you find the pillow that’s perfect for you—so you can enjoy sweet dreams every night.

 

What’s your sleep position?

Side – Firm Support. Side sleepers need a pillow that cradles the head, neck, and shoulders. A cutout to fit the shoulder can help align the spine.

Back – Medium support. Back sleepers need a pillow that supports the natural curvature of the upper spine through the head, neck, and shoulders.

Stomach – Plush support. When sleeping on your stomach, it’s important to protect the neck and head from being turned at an unnatural angle. Pillows that are relatively flat work well for stomach sleepers.

 

What’s your comfort preference?

Down - Down is a long-lasting tradition in pillow construction. It’s loved for the luxurious softness that’s both moldable and supportive. Choose a down pillow if you prefer the feel of a traditional pillow.

Synthetic Down – Synthetic down mimics everything you love about classic down filling but is a more economical option. It also boasts the advantage of being hypoallergenic so it’s a great option if you have allergies.

Memory Foam – Memory foam is optimally contouring and supportive. It’s designed to mold to your shape and to help keep your neck and spine aligned so you wake without aches and pains.

 

Do you sleep hot?

If you sleep hot, pick a pillow that’s created with technology to keep you cool. Many sleep materials capture heat, causing your temperature to rise throughout the night. To mitigate this, some Dr. Oz Good Life™ pillows are designed with CoolRelax™, a gel that actually dissipates heat to help you sleep at the perfect temperature all night long.

 

Are you sensitive to bacteria?

Pillows can act as a sponge absorbing bacteria from their environment, but there are certain materials that help your pillow stay clean night after night. For example, Dr. Oz Good Life pillows engage unique technologies that make them resistant to irritants to help you maintain a healthy sleep environment.

 

SilverScience™ - Silver is the world’s oldest antibacterial so Dr. Oz Good Life pillows are expertly woven with silver threads that inhibit bacteria to help keep your pillow clean and you healthy.

Activated Charcoal – Sustainable bamboo charcoal can be infused into pillows to inhibit allergy-causing dust mites to help you sleep and feel better.

Note: Antibacterial and toxin-reducing materials are especially important if you have nighttime allergies such as congestion, sneezing, or teary eyes.
