Back sleepers require a tad higher loft than stomach sleepers and a touch lower than side sleepers. For a fabulous night’s kip memory foam is a winning choice for back sleepers. It adapts to your head and neck supporting proper alignment. If you are looking for a better pillow, memory foam could be the way to go.
