Side sleeping is often considered the healthiest way to sleep, as it decreases the chances of experiencing pain in the neck, back, and other regions of the body. However, finding a pillow that is comfortable for side sleeping can be difficult. Some pillows are too thin and do not provide enough support, while others are too thick and can create pressure points in the neck. The best pillow for side sleepers is one that is soft enough to contour to the head and neck, but firm enough to provide support.
