talk to me about pillows
Posted by: davemchine

I have a bad disc in my neck that causes me pain down my left arm. Lately it has gotten worse and I'm thinking it's time for a new pillow. I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and there was a pretty large choice. Memory foam seems very popular but also very heavy. Some pillows seem like a basic rectangle while others have curves for the contour of the neck. Prices range from $50 to $200. Is there something special I should look for or is it like a mattress where you just have to pick one and hope it works?

Tough one!

Everyone's different.

I like being able to shape a down pillow to whatever contours my neck may need, but down gets kind of gross after awhile and doesn't really get clean even with a long soak in the washer with bleach. Also, every once in awhile I'd wake up with little scars on my face where the feathers poked out through the liner and pillowcase.

I've settled on down-alternative. A bit lumpier than down, but none of the liabilities.

...But my ex swears by memory foam for similar reasons to my preference for down. She says that it shapes itself to her head and neck. I find that it doesn't do that for me, but kind of nestles my head without contouring to my body, and it doesn't "breathe" where it touches me so when I sleep with it under my neck I wake up with a sweaty neck. OTOH, I've discovered that memory foam pillows are great to tuck under my legs when I sleep. Elevating my legs seems to give me a more restful sleep.

Too fluffy a pillow can muffle pillow talk, beware…

Side, back, or stomach sleeper? That can make a difference too.

I bought the family these, they loved them:

Based on the wirecutter review. They still recommend it as a budget pick.

I'm a hot sleeper, so I have gotten this cool gel pillow from Costco

The most expensive pillow in the world

For $4000 + travel expenses, a physical therapist will fly to your city, make a 3D image scan of your head and in 3-5 weeks your custom made pillow is ready.

For $57,000 you can get a gold and diamonds version which does include travel expenses.

thumbs up

Invest in a good home traction device, it will ease the burden on your pillow choices.

I’m a side sleeper. I forgot I have a traction device so I’ll give it a try. I’ll also look at the pillows suggested so far. Thanks.

I'm a side sleeper, and for years had neck pain every morning after awakening. Last July I did some research and ended up buying this pillow from The Company Store and my neck discomfort was completely eliminated. It's almost a year later and still no neck pain, so I'm getting ready to order a fresh replacement in a month or two ($89 for a pair of them and free shipping):

My wife always had trouble with pillows. Then we stayed at a high-end hotel for a couple of days and she said the pillow was wonderful. I took it apart and found the brand/style and bought a pair. They're more expensive than we're used to paying but it's been great for her for the last 6 months: [smile.amazon.com]

I don't even really know that you can call it a pillow. It's not like anything that I expected but it's really comfortable. No joke though, it weighs 10lbs. It's a really dense silicone rubber. I was considering getting one of their mattresses too, but it weighs about 300 lbs. I'm not sure I'm up for that.
