A Review of Different Pillows Ideal for Stomach Sleepers
Pillows for stomach sleepers?
OH MAN – what a great idea this is. And perfect for gifts. =)
Even though it tends to be uncomfortable for me (only because my back hurts already), when lying in bed at night I often have an irrestible urge to sleep on my stomach.
And I’ll be honest with you. What I do is the cheapest method possible when it comes to pillows for stomach sleepers. I take two smaller pillows and I position them around my stomach and hips. Wah-lah! A cheap option that provides enough support and is not exactly ideal but, ahem, comfortable enough. If you want to go this route, you’ll do best with something like this:
This is basically the cheapest way for stomach sleepers to fall asleep (in mild) comfort. The problem is that unless you sleep like a rock, small pillows like this aren’t going to stay in place and give you the support you need.
If you want to go to the other extreme of things and get stomach sleeper pillow specificically designed for it, here’s something to take a look at:
They call this the Better Sleep Pillow and it’s marketed as the most multi-positionable pillow on the market, meaning you can sleep in whatever crazy you want and this pillow should be able to squeeze in somewhere. For stomach sleepers, you can look at the picture and see why it’s a good fit. Note it’s made with memory foam and can perform magical feats such as help prevent snoring and alleviate muscle pain.
Another pillow of interest is this Latex Zoned Pillow, available in both plush and firm styles:
Click the picture above to read the reviews and you’ll see a number of people in love with this people who sleep on their stomach, saying that the materials allow you to keep you spine straight while still providing a pillow for your head all the while being on your stomach.
Finally we have a full body pillow designed for pregnant women. But I don’t see why anyone who likes to sleep on their stomach couldn’t use this pillow or benefit from it. Check out the design and you’ll see what I mean:
Leachco Back ‘N Belly Contoured Body Pillow
It’s kind of hilarious to imagine guys using pregnancy pillows but they seem to offer the right kind of support for both women and men who are sleep on their stomach, don’t you think?
You may also be interested in the Sobakawa Cloud Pillow. It’s got a reputation for being perfectly flexible and supportive at the same time, making it a good fit for stomach sleepers.
