There are many sleep positions, but did you know that statistics indicate nearly 70% of people sleep on their side? If you are one of the people who use a side sleeping position, you likely know the routine of tossing, fluffing and repeating to get a good night of rest. Well, this brings the question up, what is the best pillow for side sleepers?

This leads may to using at least two pillows when sleeping, as pillows that are too soft or filled with certain materials will often sink due to the weight of your head. There are pillows out there that are designed with side sleepers in mind though, below are a few of the better options.
