Frequently Asked Questions

What is a firm pillow?

Firm bed pillows have a higher loft than other bed pillow. This loft is created with additional fiber fill within the pillow, helping to ensure that the pillow maintains its height throughout the night.

This is important because as you twist and turn during night, there is a height difference created between your back, your shoulder breadth and where you head needs to be for spine alignment.

Folks who prefer firmer pillows often are side sleepers, have broader shoulders or prefer to keep their head a specific height throughout the night.

What is the best firm pillow?

The best firm pillow depends entirely on your fiber fill and height preferences. There are 3 main types of fiber fill:

  • Memory Foam: Memory foam pillows have become some of the most popular pillows on the market because they are cheap to produce and inexpensive to ship. Foam pillows, however, are highly flammable and must be sprayed with chemical flame retardants to meet U.S. regulations. In addition, memory foam heats up throughout the night and is the least-cool of all pillow types.
  • Down: Down pillows are historically the oldest, most-used type of pillows. They are made from animal down, typically duck. Many people refuse to use down pillows due to the use of animal products, while others feel that down pillows are the best, most luxurious on the market. They are the most expensive pillows on the market. They do maintain a cool feel throughout the night. They are not, however, hypoallergenic, making them a poor choice for people with allergies. They are also not machine-washable.
  • Synthetic: Synthetic pillows are made from a variety of materials. Doris pillow uses certified recycled plastic bottle fill that feel more like gel, keeping the pillow cool, foldable and hypoallergenic. Synthetic pillows are often the least expensive on the market, but be careful: synthetic fiber fill ranges in the type of fill and can thus range from down-like pillows to the cheap pillows at your local motel.

Are firm pillows good for side sleepers?

Absolutely. Side sleepers often prefer firm pillows.

This is because sleeping on your side creates a natural gap between where your shoulder rests on the bed and where you head needs to rest on the pillow in order to achieve spine alignment.

Are firm pillows better?

No, not necessarily. Your pillow firmness preference will depend entirely on your sleep position and comfort preferences. Even if you are a side sleeper, the style that typically prefers firmer pillows, you might prefer a thin or classic pillow instead.

Ultimately, the pillow firmness you choose should be based on your own comfort preferences. As always, whether you love a fluffy or flat pillow, finding an option with a pillow height you find comfortable is important to maintaining deep and restful sleep. Shop our Thin or Classic pillows if the Thick pillow is not right for how you sleep.
