This is the most popular sleep position, as 70% of people sleep on their sides, and it takes the most requirement out of it's pillow. Side sleepers has the longest distance between their ear and shoulder and need a pillow that covers that distance. “Because of the greater distance between their heads and the mattress, side sleepers often need a thicker pillow to keep their head and neck in a neutral position,” says Heather Turgeon, the author of The Happy Sleeper. This is why side sleepers are used to the flip-fluff-repeat midnight routine. Without the right alignment a side sleeper may get a strained and pinched neck. The best pillow for a side sleeper is thick, tall, and firm.
If you are a side sleeper on down, polyester, or gel alternatives then you are probably waking up with a sore neck and a numb arm. These pillows are generally too thin and don’t allow your neck to align properly with your spine throughout the night. Your weight is also completely placed on your shoulder which prevents proper arm circulation.
