    1. A pack of two premium plush pillows designed to regain their shape as you move — giving your neck support in every position you're in.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I feel like Goldilocks when I shop for pillows, they are either too soft or too firm but these pillows are just right. They are soft and keep their shape. You can adjust how firm or soft they are easily. And they arrive looking so pretty and feeling so soft that you don't even need a pillow case." —annegalina

    Price: $38.99+ (available in two sizes)

    2. A gel contour pillow that'll keep you cool no matter how hot your place gets this summer. Honestly, this thing'll always be as cool as the other side of the pillow (no flipping required).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "WOW! I have finally found the perfect pillow! The gel memory foam keeps my head cool all night long, and I no longer have to keep turning my pillow throughout the night just to get to the cold side. The memory foam is not too soft and not too firm, but somewhere right in the middle. I like to sleep on my side, and I now fall asleep like a baby." —Casey T. Pilling

    Price: $37.49

    3. A natural latex pillow formed with zoned pressure relief — a pillow this ~holy~ is sure to give you a heavenly night's sleep.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are by far the best pillows I have ever owned. I originally purchased a Queen, my daughter used it one night, and I never got it back. I needed a King pillow anyway, so I purchased the King version. Everyone uses them in the family. They are perfect, never flat, and have no bad smell. We've had the Queen for almost four years and it is still high, soft, and plush — just like the day I purchased it. My wife wanted the low loft plush on the King and there is a noticeable height difference between the high and low. Overall, this is the last pillow you will ever need to purchase. It has held up well. I would not recommend any other pillow." —Brian A.

    Price: $99.99 (available in two sizes and four support styles)

    4. A pair of hotel gel pillows that are mite resistant, hypoallergenic, and the comfiest dang things you're ever gonna sleep on.

    Amazon

    They have over 4,000 five-star reviews to prove it.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these pillows. I have spent hundreds on brand name memory foam pillows that failed to relieve my neck pain — these pillows made that pain go away immediately. I was so impressed with the feel of them that I bought two more just to have for trips. I found these pillows to be incredibly comfortable, durable, and they still maintain the great fluffy feeling even after a year of use. These are amazing pillows, especially for the price." —Taylor Hertz

    Price: $32.99+ (available in two sizes)

    5. A two-pack of gusseted quilted pillows, basically the deep dish pizza of pillows, for anyone who believes more is more when it comes to pillow fluff.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a side sleeper and have major pillow issues. For some reason, no matter the pillow, I wear them out within about three months. I read a LOT of reviews before ordering these. I put them in the dryer before using them and slept like a baby the first night! They feel soft, but don't sink all the way to the bed with the weight of my head. After four weeks I stuck them in the dryer and voila! They are nice and puffy again." —Special K

    Price: $22.99+ (available in two colors and two sizes)

    6. A two-pack of shredded gel memory foam pillows that'll finally help you remember what it's like to get a good night's rest — just use your memory... foam pillow.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "WOW. That's how I'd have to describe this pillow. It gives great support without having to re-fluff and rearrange it during the night. It does not get hot." —Bob Richie

    Price: $33.99

    7. A pair of feather down pillows made with machine-washable Egyptian cotton, Siberia feather, and Siberia down so you can sleep on a luxe pillow and never have to worry about letting the bed bugs bite.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We recently stayed at a fancy hotel and I just loved their pillows, so I decided to finally get a set for myself. I really, really love these! They are so comfy — It's like laying your head on a cushiony cloud." —Petunia619

    Price: $42.99+ (available in five sizes)

    8. A wedge pillow that'll truly ~lift up~ anyone with acid reflux, snoring concerns, aching neck or shoulders, post-surgery strain, or other sleep struggles.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have suffered with acid reflux since I was 13 (sadly, it runs in my family) and I have done everything under the sun to help it and NOTHING has helped as much as this pillow. It offers the perfect amount of support, it's comfortable, and doesn't overheat you. I sleep on my back and my sides and it's great in any position. I've had it for almost a year and it's money well spent!" —Athene

    Price: $31.49+ (available in three sizes)

    9. A cooling bamboo pillow designed with an adjustable loft so you can create a custom pillow with your body and preferred sleeping position in mind.

    Amazon

    This pillow has over 11,500 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I'm now a happy stomach sleeper! When I first opened it, I didn't read the instructions and it expanded to a huge size and I thought: WTF? I slept on it like that one night, and then realized it said to remove 1/3 of the filling for stomach sleeping. Haha, oops! I did that and haven't had a sore neck once. I used to wake up every morning with a tweak in my neck and couldn't fully turn my head. That's now completely resolved. All it took was one night's sleep! I'm so happy I am thinking of buying some for my husband and kids!" —L. Wing

    Price: $59.99+ (available in two sizes)

    10. A body pillow so supportive, you're gonna want to spoon it every single night.

    Amazon

    This pillow has over 4,700 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for pregnant ladies! I just got mine and napped with it and, oh my word, is it fantastic!" —Megan Tophinke

    Price: $59.99 (available in five colors)

    11. A dense pillow sure to please anyone with a ~firm~ belief in the importance of neck support.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been sleeping on this pillow for over a month now, and I love it just as much today as the first night I slept on it. It's comfortable because it conforms to my body and doesn't crick my neck out of whack by being too firm or high, nor does it flatten out and leave my neck without any support. It's that perfect balance of springy, cushiony support that doesn't strain the neck, even though I am a side sleeper." —Call of Kthalia

    Price: $31.59+ (available in two sizes)

    12. A pair of extra fluffy goose feather pillows for when you watch The Conjuring before bed and need some cozy comfort to keep you from thinking about the thing that's probably definitely crawling on your ceiling.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these pillows! They're very comfortable and very good quality. They definitely deserve five stars. I honestly wish I'd bought these a long time ago because they are so great! They are fluffy, soft, and such good quality." —Jordan Fox

    Price: $59.99 (available in two styles and two sizes)

    13. A knee pillow that'll provide therapeutic support and give you a ~leg up~ when you need to start sleeping with proper sleep posture.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have had both of my hips replaced and have to sleep on my back. I've tried several pillows to place behind my knees for back support and comfort, and this half moon bolster is the absolute BEST! It is just the right height and density and is very comfortable. I'm sleeping so much better!" —Sandra M.

    Price: $26.50

    14. A triangular headboard pillow that's gonna be so comfy and look so lovely in your room, you're sure to wonder why you didn't consider this (tri)angle for a headboard before.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have a king iron frame bed and I got tired of my head falling through the slats. This pillow fits perfectly and is very comfortable. It’s the perfect weight, which makes making bed less complicated. It's also perfect for supporting your head while watching TV." —Pam Craven

    Price: $65.95+ (available in five colors and four sizes)

    15. Or a twill bedrest you can throw on the bed when you're studying (i.e. binging Killing Eve) so late you can hardly keep yourself upright anymore.

    Amazon, Michelle Christina Larsen

    Promising review: "Looked high and low for one of these; I finally turned to Amazon and I'm glad I did. This bedrest is like the old ones my grandparents use to have — it's very sturdy and offers lots of support. I originally bought it for my mom, and now I want one for my husband and myself for when we watch TV in bed or read." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $27.94 (available in five colors)

    16. An FDA-registered flexible foam pillow for anyone desperately looking for a pillow that's equal parts supportive and comfortable.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a very comfy pillow. That first night using the pillow was great, it gave me nice support while keeping my head raised for watching a movie in bed, then continued to give support when I turned on my side to go to sleep. I liked how it would shape itself to exactly what I needed. Unfortunately, that was the last night I got to use it because the next night my wife stole it, fell in love with it, and has been using it ever since. She says it helps to keep her neck and back from hurting as much in the mornings. We'll have to see how it holds up over time, but so far it's been great." —primehalo

    Price: $35.99

    17. A contour wave pillow with a warm side and a cool side so you can sleep comfortably no matter what mood (or season) you're in.

    amazon.com

    One side of this pillow is made with 50% ice fabric and 50% polyester, which will feel silky, soft, and light in the summertime. The other side is 65% polyester and 35% tencel, which will feel toasty warm in the winter!

    Promising review: "I'm an average guy with a pot belly and lower back pain. I bought this pillow on a whim and prayer, and since the first night sleeping on it, I have had ZERO lower back pain. This pillow is all I use; it supports my neck and balances me out so that I can sleep a solid eight hours pain-free." —Amazon User

    Price: $28.99

    18. A contour pillow you would totally stick your neck out for.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the best pillow I've bought for my chronic neck pain. It has definitely helped! When I sleep at my boyfriend's house without this pillow, I can tell the difference; I'm considering buying an extra one for that reason." —Kendra O.

    Price: $40.08+ (available in two sizes)

    19. A water pillow that'll significantly reduce neck pain and give you the best, um, wet dreams of your life.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is like sleeping on a cloud! It is by far the best pillow I have ever owned! I put the water in with no problems — the included funnel made it so easy! Voila! The perfect firmness for me! I would highly recommend this pillow. My neck and shoulder pain has been slowly going away since I've been using it. I love it!" —M. Fletcher

    Price: $49.99

    20. A hypoallergenic density pillow with options for all three sleeping positions — stomach-sleepers, rejoice!

    Amazon

    Medium density is for stomach sleepers, firm density is for back sleepers, and extra firm density is for side sleepers.

    Promising review: "I ordered the extra firm pillows for side-sleepers and am very satisfied; they are thick and comfortable. I was worried that they'd be too firm, but they are just right. Be sure to watch the video and learn which thickness is right for your sleeping habits!" —Patti O'Barr

    Price: $31.33+ (available in three densities and three sizes)

    21. And a baguette pillow (with a surprising amount of lumbar support) for people who love to ~loaf~ around the house.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I’ve honestly never been happier with anything I’ve purchased in my entire life." —Janet

    Price: $32.68
