Re: What is the best pillow you know of for side sleepers?

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a pair of own brand, memory foam, 'Ergonimishes kissen' from Conforama, that were CHF 45- for a pair in the Black Friday sale. Best part of them is, they have a notch on the edge to accomodate your shoulder if you're a side sleeper, which I am. I wrenched my neck a couple of months ago, so these have been perfect, and they're a damned sight cheaper than the chiropractor.

Re: What is the best pillow you know of for side sleepers?

I've been sleeping on a millet pillow for years now. They are sold as Hirsekissen - I get mine at Globus - cost about Fr.25.00- You also need pillowcases of the same size.
After about a year they need to be replaced so I simply slit them open and empty the millet into the green container.


After a lot of trouble with my neck these pillows solved the problem in a very simple way as I always lie perfectly snuggled into this piece of nature.


I can really recommend this solution.

Re: What is the best pillow you know of for side sleepers?

I got mine from Lidl, their sale for those pillows comes around about twice a year. Fitting pillow covers are sold then too. I can't remember anymore, but teh Pillo costs between 15 -20.- Chf



Mine is about 1m50cm long and 40cm circumference and I wouldn't want to be without it anymore.

It's this one https://www.conforama.ch/produit_gar..._42021_1074167 You can't tell from the photos, but the thicker edge has a shoulder notch.

I assume you are talking about this:
https://www.proidee.ch/?P=200218720&...wE#prettyPhoto

but due to the low height of the pillow, if I sleep on my side (shoulder planted on bed) my head and neck would be tilted downwards. So, I am thinking this might be uncomfortable, unless I buy two and stack them together. Does it make sense what I am saying?

It makes sense, but it does come as a twin pack, so you have that option. Personally, I'm looking at the post by FCBarca and thinking it looks like a great option.

You can laugh but the Queen Rose pregnancy pillow does the trick, for guys or girls.

Not laughing. I've considered one of those for my OH who sleeps with a pillow between his knees.
