They're here to support you.

No matter how you sleep, you need to make sure you have the right amount of support for your head and your neck. Side sleepers might need a little more loft and firmness, while back sleepers usually need something a bit thinner and softer—stomach sleepers even more so. But the key to a good pillow is finding what works for you, and in many cases, finding one that's adjustable. After all, a lot of people sleep multiple ways, and maybe you start out on your side but end up on your back and need something that can work well for you either way.

If you're a back sleeper, these pillows are here to give you the support you need while you snooze, whether you prefer down fill or solid memory foam, or want something adjustable, like the Coop pillow or the Pancake Pillow. There's even a custom option, too—the Pluto Pillow, which is made to order and designed based on your sleep habits and your body. The best part? Whichever pillow you choose, you can rest easy knowing reviewers love them, too.

"If you've been on a pillow hunt for the past few years like I've been, I would recommend Pluto. They took the time to address all my wants and needs for a customized solution.

Adjustable Loft Pillow
Coop Home Goods amazon.com
$59.99

"I’m a back, stomach and side sleeper so I needed a versatile pillow. Most were a big block of foam or so soft my head wasn’t being supported. I had terrible neck and upper body pain and was getting headaches daily. All that is gone now and I’m so happy I have this pillow. When I got it, I had to take out some of the filling. That’s the nice part, I could adjust to my softness. The pillow comes with extra filler and I’ll keep it just in case. Overall, this is probably the best pillow I’ve ever had." — J. Stanmeyer
