Why can't I find a great pillow? I have spent $15 - $50 and have yet to fall asleep loving my pillow! I am a side sleeper and I stay away from feather.

I saw the Eddie Bauer ones at Costco the other day and was tempted.

Anyone have a great pillow they recommend? I really don't want to steal them from nice hotels.

Mr unfound got his through here and is happy happy. Pricey, but it was worth it for him to get a good nights sleep.

I have a high density foam pillow made by a company called Z by Malouf. Their website looks shady as shit, but I love the pillows I have from them. Love.

The only trouble I have had is that they don't have a medium loft pillow, so my chiropractor and I brainstormed and I got some craft foam cut to pillow size and layered 1/2 inch thick sheets under my low loft pillow until it was the right height. I have back problems though.

They're also way cheaper on amazon than their own website (shop through Phil!)

A few yrs back I was in PT for my neck and shoulder. I'm also a side sleeper and my PT recommended a cervical pillow, but then she told me that its not just the pillow, but how you use it. She then gave me an entire session dedicated to how and why I should adjust my sleeping position.

I have the same pillow issues. I buy a new one every year or so, hoping to find the right one. I am also a side sleeper - so if you find the right one, please let me know!

I bought the cervical pillow from Tempurpedic--about $120 I think. I have neck issues so I need it, but I love it so much I have taken it on vacation with me.

Edited to add: Uh oh, there's that attachment to material things again! Jeezsh.

I'm a side sleeper too. I bought the Side Sleeper Pro pillow (amazon has it). It's in the shape of a candy cane and looks odd, but for me, it made a huge difference in comfort. I tried many pillows trying to find the right one...spent a lot of money too. The side sleeper was only $20.00.

I have yet to unpack it but I have a side sleep pillow I used while pregnant.

I got us two soft feather pillows some time ago. I found it was to soft for me so I end up folding it up or squishing it into a ball. Sometimes I hug it, other times I wake up to no pillow cause Its ended up on the floor in the middle of the night

I am a restless sleeper.

Going to go unpack my side pillow now

Obus Forme pillows are great!
..and they're Canadian!

Mine is shaped like the ObusForme.

I am a side sleeper too and the only pillow I can sleep with is a feather pillow but it can't be soft or spongy. I have to have a hard feather pillow and cannot find one anywhere. I cannot sleep on those contour pillows either I tried and ended giving it away.

I am a side sleeper too, but my BH sleeps on both his back and his side. My entire family now have and love these pillows. I had neck/shoulder pain for years but no more.

I agree with knightbff! Bought two "my pillows" hubby and I both love them!
