I’ve tried many pillows over the years and The Purple Pillow ($99) is the best one I’ve ever used for sleeping on my back. However, it’s not great if you’re a side sleeper.
The pillow has a Smart Comfort Grid with reinforced edges that are engineered to support your neck’s natural curvature. It also comes with a 100-night guarantee so you can try it for more than three months risk-free.
If you’re a back sleeper and struggle to fall asleep or wake up with a stiff neck, the Purple Pillow may be great for you.
I’ve struggled with sleeping my entire life.
If it’s not insomnia that gets me, it’s the pillow itself. For 30 years, I’ve been searching for the perfect pillow. And I’ve tried my fair share too. Soft, firm, medium — pretty much all the ones you can find at stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond, and even online.

This is the best pillow I’ve ever used while sleeping on my back but it was pretty terrible while on my side. I woke up with a stiff neck and migraine after the first night of using it. Because I don’t have good luck with pillows, I thought it was just me and gave it to my husband for a night without telling him my experience. He also reported back that it was “the best pillow ever on my back, but killed my neck.”
I reached out to Purple with our experience and it confirmed that the pillow is best for back sleepers. The rep didn’t say you shouldn’t use the pillow entirely if you’re a side sleeper, and the website even shows someone sleeping on their stomach with …read more
