Choosing the right pillow can be one of the most important decisions you make for a better night’s sleep. Everyone knows there’s nothing worse than tossing and turning in the middle of the night, trying to get comfortable, only to wake up with a sore neck the next day. To help cut down on the guess-work of pillow shopping, we collected some candid testimonials from our staff here at Cuddledown about what features they look for in their own personal pillows. From softness and support, to firmness and fill, our staff breaks down which pillows work best for them, and hopefully you as well.

My favorite pillow is the 700 Fill Power White Duck Down Double Contour Pillow. I am a side sleeper and a pillow hugger, therefore I have a tendency to sleep with my pillow in a vertical position. The double contour configuration allows me to have the support under my head but still hug my pillow when sleeping. I’ve never slept better.

My favorite is the 450 TC Sateen Synthetic Fill Pillow. I love how the overfilled keep their supportive shape, night after night. I’m mostly a side-sleeper and like the neck support. I’ve given several to family members over the years and they also love them!

800 Fill Power European White Goose Down Sateen Pillow Firm. I love a firmer pillow and this pillow gives me that firmness but is also very soft with the high quality goose down fill.

I like the 700 Fill Power White Duck Down Gusseted Pillow. This pillow is so soft, and at the same time, it offers solid support. I pretty much can only sleep with this pillow now. I’m lost if I forget it while traveling overnight :).
The 700 Fill Power Contour Cradle Gusseted Down Pillow is my favorite because it provides the perfect amount of comfort and support. As a side sleeper I prefer a pillow that won’t sink throughout the night, allowing my head to stay in alignment with my back. I wake up feeling relaxed and rested.
I personally love the 600 Fill Power White Duck Down Chamber Pillow! You get the softness of down and the support of the 95/5% core!
Sateen King Medium. Absolutely! I like my pillow big and firm. I don’t even care what fill is in them, these are the only pillows allowed on my bed (unless my wife says otherwise).
My favorite pillow is the 800 Fill Power Batiste in Queen Soft fill- but I like two :). Pillow snob!
My favorite Cuddledown pillow is the Down Luxury Support Pillow Queen, medium weight because the latex neck support roll fits good under your neck and you can move the down in the chambers.

Phil K: I like the 50/50 blend in soft because I can fold it and mold it how I want with just enough support.
Chester L: the 50/50 medium– it gives support but is also soft.
Mary H: 700 Fill Power European White Goose Down Sateen Pillow because I sleep on my back and like a soft pillow.
Jenny M: the Synthetic Fill Gusseted Sateen Pillow. It’s really soft and squishy but has enough to it to sleep comfortably.
