Get to know your new favorite pillow. (Photo: Amazon)
Your pillow is an important aid to getting a good night’s sleep. And while many people get along fine with standard rectangular pillows, others prefer a wedge style so they can comfortably catch some ZZZs.
Why? A wedge pillow can help support your upper body while you sleep, counteract acid reflux, heartburn, post-nasal drops from allergies, and even snoring. The claim about snoring seems a bit of a stretch, but it’s actually legitimate, says Dr. Christopher Winter of Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine and author of The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep Is Broken and How to Fix It versus Yahoo Life.
“Think of the airway as a soft tube,” he explains. “The more vertical the tube is, the less likely it is to collapse.” This collapse can lead to difficulty breathing and snoring.
When it comes to pillow choice, “you want your head to be properly supported so your neck muscles can relax,” Nicole Nagle, assistant professor in the Kinesiology and Health Department at Rutgers University, told Yahoo Life. “When choosing a pillow, focus on the alignment of your body,” she continues. “When you are lying on a pillow, you want to make sure that it supports not only your head but your neck as well.”
A wedge pillow is not for everyone, but if you regularly struggle with a stuffy nose or snoring problems, it is definitely worth considering. Are you interested in trying one out?

This pillow has a lot to offer. It has a layer of high density memory foam that gives you extra grip while you snooze. Ebung’s wedge pillow is also free of toxic substances and, unlike many other memory foam pillows, does not get hot.
The story goes on
The pillow measures 25 x 24 x 12 inches, making it just the right size for almost every sleeper. A nice extra: this wedge also makes it easy to support yourself in bed while watching TV or reading.
Do you happen to spill something on your wedge pillow? No problem! Simply open the zipper and throw in the laundry.
The Ebung Wedge Pillow has an army of five-star ratings. “I’m a big guy, 6’2” over 350 pounds. That doesn’t help me, “said a satisfied customer.” I had difficulty falling asleep and woke up after an hour. This product helped me fall asleep faster. I don’t want to make any medical claims, but I feel I breathe better with this pillow. I love it.”
Another fan said it helps with back and neck pain. “I am very happy with this wedge pillow,” they said. “I have back and neck pain, but I love reading and watching TV in bed. It gives me the support I need and prevents me from falling limp. It is soft but stable enough not to sink into it . I often lean on it when trying to turn on my side. When I have congestion from allergies, I usually sleep on it and the tilting really helps me breathe better. I like it to sit or down Lying down can use. “
And another happy customer said it was the much needed solution to her husband’s snoring. “After trying a variety of solutions over the years including: white noise machine, apps, industrial grade, noise-reducing foam earplugs, and Ambien (none with success), I bought two wedges for my husband (one to lift his Feet and the other for his head) in hopes that it would ease his insanely loud (like a chainsaw) snoring, “they wrote. “Fortunately, 20 years of sleep deprivation were stopped overnight with this product !! He was comfortable and his very broad shoulders were well supported by the firm but comfortable foam.”
Whether you have a tendency to go to bed stuffy, have back and neck problems, or want to suppress snoring, this pillow can help.
