Best Pillows For Neck Pain

Do you ever find yourself waking up with a stiff neck, neck soreness, pain radiating from the neck, or experience difficulty getting a good night’s sleep?

A good neck pillow is crucial in maintaining proper alignment of the head, neck, and spine by supporting the natural curvature of the neck, reducing strain and tension on the muscles and joints.

One of the significant benefits of a good neck pillow is improved sleep quality.

By providing optimal support, it can help minimise discomfort by ensuring a more restful and uninterrupted sleep, so you can wake up feeling refreshed.

How Many Pillows Should You Sleep With?


Ultimately, the choice of how many pillows to sleep with is down to your own personal preference.

It can depend on various factors, including your sleeping position, comfort level, and any specific neck or back conditions you may have.

Back sleepers often find one pillow sufficient, whilst side sleepers may benefit from using one or two pillows to fill the space between the shoulder and the ear.

Experimenting with different pillow types, sizes and heights, and seeking professional advice regarding neck and back conditions if needed, can help you fully customise your sleep environment by determining the ideal arrangement that caters to your specific needs.


How To Choose To Right Neck Pillow

We provide all the bedding essentials necessary to ensure an exceptional night’s sleep.

Our selection of pillows encompasses luxurious duck and goose down encased in 100% Egyptian cotton, to firmer pillows equipped with state-of-the-art temperature-regulating technology.



There are a couple of key factors to consider when searching for the best neck support pillow.

This could include:

Pillow Filling

Neck pillows are typically filled with different materials that each offer varying levels of support and comfort.

Our pillows are stuffed with natural wool for a firmer feel or synthetic fibres such as Smartfil, and polyester fibres such as Thermofil for a softer and more malleable feel.

We stock the finest duck feather pillows and goose feather pillows for those looking to add a touch of luxury, whilst our latex choices are hypoallergenic, durable and 100% recyclable.

Support Level

Everyone is different, that’s why it’s important to consider the level of support you need for your neck.

If you’re experiencing neck pain or stiffness, perhaps opt for a deeper pillow with medium to firm support.

Firm pillows are ideal for side sleepers as they provide adequate support to the neck, back and shoulders, keeping the spine aligned.

Stomach sleepers typically require something flatter and softer to alleviate neck strain.

If you tend to change sleeping positions frequently during the night, a pillow with medium support that can adapt to different sleeping positions, such as a latex or adjustable pillow, may be suitable.
