A whopping 74% of the population reportedly sleep on their side, making it the most popular sleeping position in the UK. Individuals who prefer to sleep on their side require a pillow that supports the head and neck, allowing the spine to maintain a straight and natural horizontal line.
A thicker pillow is required for sleeping on your back, compared to other sleeping positions. It is also advised that you place an additional pillow between your knees to help keep the spine in its natural position. Without this additional pillow, there is a risk that your upper leg rotates downwards as you sleep, pulling the pelvis and distorting the natural curvature of the spine.
In this blog posting, we will discuss what we believe as the best pillows for side sleepers.
