Medium Pillows

Medium Pillows for Back Sleepers

Medium pillows offer a perfect blend of comfort and support. They are characterized by a moderate level of fill, meaning that the material inside is more dense than a soft pillow but less dense than a firm pillow. This allows your head to sink in a little while still being propped up, creating an ideal neck alignment for back sleepers. Medium density pillows are also medium in loft, or height, because they have more fill than a flat pillow but compress more than a very firm pillow.

Medium pillows come in a variety of densities ranging from medium-soft to medium-firm. They are the most popular density because they are flexible enough for most sleepers.

Medium 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.
