Making sure you are buying the right pillow isn’t easy.
Even if you search online for reviews (like you’re doing now…!) then you will likely come across a lot of American websites that aren’t relevant to the UK. There’s nothing worse than researching a pillow, finding the perfect one, then discovering that it’s priced in dollars – and isn’t even available over here in Britain! 🙁
The correct pillow is extremely important: it’s almost as important, if not more so, than the mattress. In terms of percentages, only a small part of your body is resting on the pillow and the rest on the mattress, but of course it’s the importance of your head that counts. If you don’t get it right then you’ll get all sorts of problems – neck ache, back pain, and so on.
And these types of conditions aren’t only limited to buying the incorrect mattress (for example, the best mattresses for back pain sufferers). I’ve manually created a number of helpful guides & articles here to help you find the right pillow for your exact needs. I have tried to hand-review every item where possible, either purchased or given a free sample, but regardless these do NOT affect how I review my products. I always create honest unbiased reviews where possible.
So without further ado , here is my list of pillow reviews. Make sure to read my best mattresses (2021) guide here too if you’re looking to buy a new mattress – I have reviewed ones from £200 up to £5000!
- MyPillow Reviews (UK)
- Emma Pillow review
- Nectar Pillow review
- Simba Hybrid Pillow reviews
- Eve pillow review (2021)
Or sorted by category:
- Best pillow for neck pain
- Best pillow for side sleepers
- Best pillows for back sleepers
- Best pillows for front sleepers
- Best pillow for shoulder pain
Like with mattresses, there is – sadly – no agreed industry standard scale of comfiness or softness for pillows either. So you will likely just have to rely on reviews and hands-on experiences to decide if a new pillow is going to be too soft or too hard. I’ll keep updating this page with more reviews and guidance.
PS: I’ll shortly add reviews for pillow protectors too, but as of yet I haven’t been able to test them out fully, so that part is coming soon. Please let me know how you find this section in the comments below – I love hearing from my loyal visitors.
