The most important thing for side sleepers is having a firmer pillow that fills the space between the ear and outer shoulder and supports the spine’s natural position.

Finding the perfect pillow isn’t as hard as you might think. It’s a journey, for sure, but not a tough one if you understand how you sleep. That’s really what finding the right pillow comes down to; knowing the type of sleeper you are and then finding a pillow that supports you as you snooze.

Which type of pillow is your perfect match?


The Back Sleeper

Left to Right: Memory Foam, Latex, Posture Sleep, Wool Blend

If you spend most of the night on your back, you’re best to grab a memory foam or latex pillow. These pillows are thicker than most, so your head and neck both get the support they need.

The memory foam and latex pillows feature superior breathability and moisture performance.

The added bonus of the memory foam relieves pressure points and is heat sensitive. This means the pillow will contour to the shape of your head and neck and quickly bounce back to its original position when you rise.

The Side Sleeper

The most important thing for side sleepers is having a firmer pillow that fills the space between the ear and outer shoulder and supports the spine’s natural position. It makes Memory foam and Latex pillows just as good for side sleepers as they are back sleepers!

If you sleep most of the night on your side, the Posture Sleep, Wool Blend and Knee Wedge Pillows are great options.

What makes the Posture Sleep pillow so dreamy is that it features a supportive foam core wrapped in premium quality polyester. Not only does it retain fullness, but it also contours perfectly to your head and neck.

For natural support, breathability and temperature balancing properties of Pure New Australian Wool, the Wool Blend Pillow is your perfect option. The resilience of its polyester fibre adds much-needed support to the head and neck for side-sleepers.

The Stomach Sleeper

If you spend most of your sleep on your tummy, you need a pillow with a low profile to ensure your spine and neck remain in alignment throughout the night. This is crucial in preventing neck pain.

The Microfibre Pillow is soft and cosy to the touch and designed to emulate the finest goose cluster. This pillow will become your new best friend for the perfect night's sleep


Sleepers with Back Pain

If you have back pain to contend with, it’s all about finding a pillow that keeps the spine in place while you’re sleeping.

A Body pillow is your best bet. It supports your hips and shoulders and prevents tossing and turning throughout the night.

The Knee Wedge is also great for those with lower back pain. It can be positioned under your knees, arms, feet or behind your back to relieve pressure on the lower back. It supports a good night’s sleep without pain in the morning. How nice would that be!?

For Nursing Mums

For nursing mums, it’s all about support, so it’s best to look toward a larger than average pillow you can pop behind or around you. Grab yourself a Tri, Body or Euro pillow, and you’re good to go!

This will give you the comfort and back support you need while you’re sitting up in bed or on the sofa.

There’s nothing worse than suffering through a terrible night’s sleep, so grab your sleep style pillow from the Lorraine Lea range and enjoy a pain-free snooze!
