The perfect pillow needs to match your personal preferences and suit your sleeping style. If you sleep on your back, you need a pillow that supports your head, aligns your back, and keeps you comfortable while you sleep. 

SleepSeeker has a variety of pillows for back sleepers, including 100% hollowfibre products and natural pillow options. Whether you alternate positions or sleep on your back all night long, our medium support pillows are designed to improve the quality of your sleep.

Should back sleepers use a pillow?

There are many ways to sleep, with most people having a dominant sleeping position. Along with side sleeping, back sleeping is one of the most common sleeping styles. If you sleep on your back for any extended time period, it's important to get a pillow that aligns with the shape of your sleeping body.

Back sleeping is a great position for anyone who wants to reduce neck and back pain. When you sleep on your back, you are maintaining the alignment of your spine and helping your body to stay comfortable. Back sleepers should always use a pillow, and most people prefer a product with a medium level of support.

What type of pillow is best for back sleepers?

Back sleeping is a common way to sleep, either in isolation or in combination with side and front sleeping. Medium pillows help to improve physical comfort, reduce aches and pains, and promote neck and spine alignment among back sleepers. These pillows provide adequate support for your head without pushing it too far forwards. Medium firmness pillows are made from a range of filling materials, including 100% hollowfibre and natural feather and down blends.

How many pillows should a back sleeper use?

Back sleepers should always sleep with a single pillow in order to improve comfort and reduce physical complaints. While multiple pillows can be used while reading or streaming media in bed, a single medium pillow is recommended while you sleep. Having too many pillows can lead to back pain due to misalignment between the head, neck, and spine. If you feel like you need two pillows to get comfortable, you may need to buy a new pillow or change your current pillow for a firmer product.
