Best pillow for back sleepers

Most people have one or two positions that they prefer while sleeping. There’s no real reason for it; some of us just need to move. For people who sleep on their backs, there can be a few extra challenges, like finding a decent pillow.

When you sleep on your back, the support and structure of your pillow becomes even more important. And if you’re sleeping on a cheap pillow from a department store, you may be cheating yourself out of a good night’s rest. Here’s what back sleepers should look for when pillow shopping.

What is the Best Pillow for Back Sleepers?

  • A pillow that regulates temperature
  • A pillow that can provide proper alignment for your neck and shoulders
  • A pillow that is soft but also has structure
  • A pillow that can adjust to slight movements
  • A pillow that won't wear out over time

Temperature matters

It’s hard to fall asleep when it’s too hot or too cold, but temperature regulation once you’ve finally gotten to sleep is just as important. Everyone is a little different, but usually, a temperature somewhere in the high sixties or low seventies is ideal for sleep. But you’re covered in blankets, and once you’re asleep, your body temperature may still continue to rise.

This can lead to tossing and turning. We’ve all woken up at 3 am only to find we’re freezing because at some point we kicked all our blankets to the floor. Pillows from Luxe Pillow have built-in temperature control to keep your sleeping temperature fairly consistent, saving you from tossing and turning.

What about snoring?

The back sleepers of the world are more likely to snore, thanks to good old gravity. Many back sleeping snorers are encouraged to train themselves to sleep on their sides, but switching pillows can also help a back sleeper ease up on the snoring. The proper distribution of softness and support that a layered pillow from Luxe Pillow provides can relieve some of the weight and pressure on your airways that often results in snoring.


Most pillows are built for side sleepers and only take into account the structure needed to support the spine when you’re sideways. But when you sleep on your back, you need something a little softer--but not too soft. This is why Luxe Pillow comes with multiple layers, to provide that extra bit of softness that properly cradles the head without putting a kink in your neck.

Pillow comfort is about more than just spoiling yourself. Luxe Pillow is the best pillow for back sleepers because it provides not only the comfort you need to enjoy each night’s sleep but also the support and structure that’s so vital to the deep, sound sleep cycles that keep you healthy and rested.
