8 Best Pillows for Stomach Sleepers

A good sleep can be ruined by a bad pillow. In fact, 70% of people reported that their pillows affected whether or not they got a decent night's sleep during the past two weeks, according to a poll commissioned by the National Sleep Foundation. The pillow problem might be even bigger for people who sleep on their stomachs. "This position can be bad for your neck," says Michael Breus, PhD, author of The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan and a clinical psychologist who specializes in sleep disorders. "You have to turn your head to the side almost a full 90-degrees." Ideally, he says, "your nose should always line up with your sternum." This will keep your spine in a neutral position and help prevent back and neck pain. For fans of the prone position, here are our top two pillow picks from four different categories. Sleeping on a full body pillow raises your chest cavity, which helps align your neck with your spine, says Dr. Breus. Utopia's super soft version is 4.5 feet long and made with fluffy polyester filling that can adapt to your body position. Bonus: It's machine-washable.

3. 2021 Best Latex Mattresses (Top 10 Ranked)

Latex is derived from the rubber tree and is one of the only all-natural foams that exists in nature. Latex's responsive texture, ability to be crafted into multiple firmnesses, and popularity with those with chemical sensitivities make it one of the most sought after types of mattresses. Its promise is a uniquely comfortable, cool night sleep while being safe on you and your little ones. That said, it comes at a steep price compared to other foam and mattress materials. With the exception of rare latex allergies, latex is completely safe for those with chemical sensitivities. Organic latex mattresses and hybrid mattresses that use organic latex are eligible for one of the strictest certifications - Greenguard. If you or a family member suffer from allergies or sensitivities, look for this seal for your next mattress. The best latex mattresses blend supportive, pressure relieving foam with supportive cores (such as coils or firm latex core). Their top layer is generally softer, with a gentle bounce to the touch, but their support layers provide superior support for the spine and back. The most comfortable latex mattresses tend to be firmer than memory foam, with the best being medium firm and offering superior support. Latex generally sleeps cool and provides more airflow than memory foam or synthetic foams. If you are a warm sleeper, latex mattresses are good for you. Unlike memory foam, latex bounces and is highly responsive. Some people love this and some people do not . An extra bounce in bed does have its benefits though...if you know what we mean!
