Give It a Rest: 5 Pillows to Help You Sleep Better
Ah, a good night’s sleep. What we all need to be productive, well-rested and happy.
People talk about comfortable mattresses till the cows come home, or in this case, until the sheep get counted, but often ignore another integral sleepy-time surface: the pillow. Or pillow quality. And really, whether you call Ellicott City or Adams Morgan home, who among us doesn’t like that feeling of first putting our head down on a soft surface, knowing the day (or night) is finally over (for some us anyway)?
But what makes a pillow great? Well, there are people out there who rate such ineffable questions, folks like ConsumerSearch.com, who give us their top picks in five categories. Yes, there are five categories for pillows. It does sound pretty excessive. But we’ll take it for a good night of zzzz.
Below are the winners, along with the Amazon price at the time of writing (excepting their Best Body Pillow, which is sold at Walmart). As always, look around for the best price.
