The Queen Midsize pillow offers firmer support to people in this range, and is also suitable for people up to 6’0” tall who prefer sleeping on their backs.

Did you know about two-thirds of people are side sleepers? Sleeping on your side has its share of issues, though, particularly if you tend to sleep at a 90-degree angle to your mattress. Sleeping in that position throughout the night can put undue pressure on your shoulders’ trapezius muscles, which work to support the weight of your head. If you’re feeling shoulder or neck pain after a night’s sleep, try adjusting your body so that your free shoulder is slightly ahead of the rest of your body, making somewhat of a 45-degree angle.
