The best memory foam pillows
- Sleep is important, and pillows are one of the key ingredients for getting a good night's rest.
- There are a ton of memory foam pillows out there, but the Coop Home Goods memory foam pillow is the best one you can buy because it suits most sleepers and adjusts to fit your needs.
When you think of upgrading your bed, you probably think about getting a new mattress or maybe a new sheet set. The humble pillow, however, plays a seriously important role in getting a good night's sleep. Having a good pillow can be the difference between waking up unable to move your head, and waking up feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
Of course, there are plenty of pillows to choose from. We've highlighted the best pillows here, but for those who are looking for memory foam specifically, this one's for you. Memory foam pillows are great at contouring to your specific needs and keeping your spine and neck aligned and supported.
There are, however, a number of things to consider before you purchase a memory foam pillow. For starters, you'll want to think about the position that you most often sleep in - on your back, your side, your stomach, or all three. Your sleeping position will help inform the thickness and shape of the memory foam pillow that's best for you.
You'll also want to think about the type of memory foam that you want to have inside your pillow. Options include a slab of memory foam contoured to your head and neck or shredded memory foam that will adapt to whatever you need it to feel like.
