Firm Pillows for Side Sleepers

Firm pillows offer premium cushion and support. They are characterized by more fill, resulting in the highest density among pillows. This allows your head to rest comfortable on top of the pillow without sinking in too much, creating the optimal neck alignment for side sleepers. Firm pillows tend to have the highest loft, or height, because the additional fill helps them retain their shape longer.

Firm pillows can be made from either down or down alternatives. Down pillows are typically filled with goose or duck down. Down alternative pillows are made from specialized polyester fill. Most pillows are surrounded by soft cotton fabric that is meant to be covered by a pillow protector and pillow case of your choice.
