Peak adulthood is when the term “body pillow,” no longer represents a furry turquoise-colored Limited Too bed accessory — and instead refers to a specially-engineered sleep product intended to support our aging bods. Yes, we’ve put the carefree days of stylish sleepovers in novelty bedding behind us for the more serious task at hand: combatting restless slumbers (due to back and neck pain) with top-rated body pillows.
Like sleep styles, not all body pillows are created equal — and what works for one snoozer may not work for another. The supportive goods come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and materials (from C-shapes covered in soft jersey knits to standard silhouettes filled with bounce-back memory foam). Whether you're in search of some back, side, or even pregnancy support while catching your Zs, the options ahead have those bases and more accounted for. But don't just take our word for it, because we’ve included the ratings and hype around each pillow to help you make the most informed purchase possible.
Scroll on to shop the best body pillows for your sleep style. (What they lack in sparkly animal shapes, they make up for in optimized slumbers.)
