For sleepers searching for a luxurious night of rest, the Layla Kapok Pillow is the best pillow for you. The combination of Kapok fibers and reactive memory foam fill creates a pillow that conforms to you while maintaining its shape throughout the night. The cover, made from a breathable blend of polyester and viscose with CuTEC® performance copper fibers, keeps you cool and clean while you rest.

Most Comfortable Pillow for Sleeping

The most comfortable pillow for sleeping is one that will keep your head, neck, and shoulders aligned with your spine. When you sleep at night, the wrong pillow can make your head and neck fall in an uncomfortable position, which can lead to pain and discomfort throughout the night and when you wake up. Depending on your sleeping position, such as stomach, side, or back, you’ll need a different type of pillow. No matter what you choose, the most comfortable pillow is up to you, as each sleeper has different preferences.

Best Cooling Pillow for Hot Sleepers

There’s a reason you wear hats in the winter — to trap the heat and keep you warm. With that said, your head releases a lot of heat, and if you’re sleeping on the wrong pillow, that heat can make you toss and turn in a puddle of sweat all night. The best cooling pillow for hot sleepers is one that contains cooling properties and redirects body heat away from your head.

The Layla Kapok Pillow contains CuTEC® performance copper fibers woven throughout. With copper being the second most conductive element on our planet, your body heat will be transported away to leave you feeling cool and refreshed throughout the night. Kapok is also lighter and airier than cotton, which makes this pillow extremely breathable and cool.

The Layla Memory Foam Pillow uses a mix of open-cell memory foam and extremely breathable polyester fibers in the cover, allowing for adequate airflow throughout the pillow.

Best Pillow for Stomach, Side, and Back Sleepers

Not all sleepers are the same, which means you might need a different pillow than your friend, sibling, or neighbor. Stomach sleepers should opt for a thinner, softer pillow to ensure your head and neck aren’t raised too high above your shoulders and spine. The most comfortable pillow for side sleepers is typically a thicker, firmer pillow that keeps your head and neck aligned with your back. For back sleepers, the best pillow is one with a medium loft that keeps your body in a neutral position.

Both the Layla Kapok Pillow and Layla Memory Foam Pillow have an adjustable fill, meaning you can adjust the loft (or height) of your pillow to meet your sleeping needs. Too tall? Take some of the excess fill out and store it away. Too low? Simply add more to reach your desired height.

Softest Pillow

At Layla Sleep, our memory foam pillow is one of our softest pillows. With memory foam that matches the contours of your body, you’ll sink into a position that you can enjoy all night. Both pliable and supportive, our memory foam pillow will keep its shape while keeping your head and neck supported during the night.

Top-Rated Luxury Pillow

If you’re the luxurious type, look no further than the Layla Kapok Pillow. One of the top-rated pillows, the Kapok Pillow has a unique mix of Kapok fibers and reactive memory foam fill that feels as if you’re sleeping on a cloud. Cool, comfortable, and cushioned, there’s a reason our Kapok pillow is one of the best pillows for sleeping.


What pillows are best for sleepers with back pain?

Back pain can lead to poor sleep, which can affect almost every aspect of your life. To ensure your back is properly supported at night, you not only need the right mattress but the right pillow. The best pillow for back pain is one that supports your head and neck, as that will help align your spine. A pillow that reduces pressure and tension in your neck and shoulders can help you wake up feeling refreshed with little to no discomfort in your back. To reduce back pain, you can also place a pillow between your knees to provide lumbar support and keep your spine aligned. Pillows with memory foam or adequate fill are best for sleepers with back pain, as they’ll have enough cushioning to keep you supported.

What pillows are best for sleepers with neck pain?

Neck pain is another ailment that can keep you up all night and affect your daily life. The best pillow for neck pain is similar to pillows for back pain. To alleviate neck pain, look for a pillow that properly supports your head, neck, and shoulders. Memory foam pillows can adapt to the contours of your body and alleviate pressure points that cause discomfort, resulting in quality sleep and little to no neck pain.

What pillows are best for side sleepers?

Side sleepers required a thicker, firmer pillow compared to the soft and thinner pillows required by stomach sleepers. Thicker pillows will help align your head, neck, and shoulders with your back and spine to ensure you have good posture that doesn’t result in aches and pains the moment you wake up.

What is the best pillow to buy?

The best pillow for you depends on what you’re looking for in a pillow. We recommend memory foam pillows since that material does a phenomenal job supporting your head and neck properly. Memory foam pillows from Layla Sleep® strike the ideal balance between soft and supportive.

What types of bed pillows does Layla Sleep® offer?

Layla Sleep® offers you two kinds of pillows so you can pick your perfect match. The Layla® Shredded Memory Foam Pillow is adjustable, so it can be customized no matter your sleeping position. You can even adjust the loft of your pillow if you find it’s a bit too fluffy for your liking and remove the filling until it meets your needs.

The Layla® Kapok Pillow is another great choice and a good pillow for sleeping. A blend of natural Kapok fibers and reactive memory foam delivers a better, long-lasting loft. Your head and neck will be gently cradled all night long.

Are Layla® pillows washable?

And don’t worry, if you spill your nightcap on your pillow, you can simply toss the exterior cover into your washing machine. The Layla® Memory Foam Pillow comes in two sizes, Queen and King.
