Layered memory foam pillows are usually made up of 3 or more different layers.
Why you should buy:
Why you should avoid:
Layered pillows are often adjustable, meaning you can remove the layers to create your ideal pillow height. 👍
Different layered inserts mean each layer can have a different benefit (ie. cooling layer, memory foam layer, support layer).
Layered foam pillows are made with solid foam blocks, meaning they aren’t as breathable as shredded memory foam pillows.
Often, removing one layer means compromising on a benefit. For example, removing the support layer means the pillow feels less supportive, or removing the cooling layer means the pillow feels hotter. 🌡️
Our recommended layered memory foam pillows:
The Emma Original Pillow comes with a soft, medium and firm layer that can be removed for your ideal sleep position and firmness preference.
The Nectar Adjustable Pillow comes with 3 layers, including a gel-infused core layer and a breathable Tencel® cover for hot sleepers.
Back sleeping is the best position for a night of healthy sleep.
However, you should avoid sleeping on your back when pregnant.🤰 Research shows sleeping on your back in the third trimester of pregnancy can restrict blood flow and oxygen to your baby. Instead, you should try sleeping on your side, using a pregnancy pillow if necessary.
Back sleepers need a medium-height pillow that cushions the head and shoulders.
A medium-feel pillow is ideal for back sleepersto give you the support you need whilst cushioning the head and shoulders. 🥰
A back sleeper pillow should be low enough to help align the spine and neck.
If you feel as if your neck is bending when sleeping on your back, opt for a lower or softer pillow.
We highly recommend the Tempur Comfort Cloud for back sleepers.
The medium height and feel of the pillow make this a great choice for the back sleeping position.
The NASA-approved Tempur Material is supportive enough to keep the spine and neck neutrally aligned whilst moulding comfortably around the head and shoulders.
