Finding the right pillow for your bed is more than just purchasing the cheapest pillow, the highest priced pillow, the pillow that looks the best, or the pillow that has the most positive reviews. Instead, it comes down to your personal sleeping style (i.e. back sleeper, side sleeper, or stomach sleeper). As with anything else just because one person absolutely loves one pillow, if the two of you have different sleeping styles you could end up hating it. Today I am going to discuss how to find the right pillow for your bed.

Make Sure the Pillow Suits Your Sleeping Position

While during the night you probably take on a few different positions, when purchasing a new pillow make sure that you go with one that compliments how you wake up in the morning. For example, if you wake up on your back you are a back sleeper or if you wake up on your side, you are a side sleeper. If you never really paid any attention to this, keep a journal for about a week and see which position is the most common when you wake up.

Think About the Filling

There are so many different types of pillow fillings so it’s important to make sure that you are aware of the type of filling that it contains. When doing so, consider your allergies and other medical conditions that you may have.

Recently, I upgraded my pillows to the Brentwood Home Sleep and Wellness Bundle. All four pillows are filled with latex, which means that they are very responsive so they can easily mold to my head. I am in love with latex pillows personally because they are mold resistant, which is great for those suffering from allergies, and they are like memory foam but are a little cooler.

Read the Reviews

While everyone has different preferences when it comes to pillows when shopping online it is important to read the reviews before being surprised in the mail with a pillow that you hate. Trust me, this is very important because I order my pillows offline usually and when trying new brands before I got the pillow and hated it. The thing I like about the Brentwood Home Sleep and Wellness Bundle is that they have all 5-star reviews.

See If They Have a Trial Period and Find Out How Returns Work

When ordering your pillows from online there is always the chance that it won’t work out. Furthermore, since we all know some pillows can be expensive it’s important to know that if you don’t like them that you aren’t stuck with useless pillows.

For example, with the Brentwood Home Sleep and Wellness Bundle, you have 30 days to return the pillows if they are not your cup of tea.

My Thoughts on the Brentwood Home Sleep and Wellness Bundle

The pillows after removed from the boxes.

Thie set consists of four latex pillows – 2 Helena Latex/Kapok Pillows and 2 Carmel Latex Molded Pillows. The pillows all seem to shape with my head and they are the perfect combination – not too soft but also not too firm. I don’t have to worry about folding or bending them for them to be comfortable and all it takes is really one pillow for me to be comfortable while sleeping. The best part is the Helena Latex/Kapok Pillows are made for all types of sleepers, so as I turn and move in my sleep I don’t have to worry about waking up with a stick neck.
