Tariq: What’s the absolute best pillow for side sleepers? It doesn’t matter the cost.  I need one as soon as possible.

Thank you for your question. The best pillow is one that is 100-percent adjustable.  For side sleepers, it has to have a high crown to adequately fill the space between the shoulder and cervical spine. My recommendation is the Beyond Down® Side Sleeper – it is after all the bombdiggity! So says Happy Dan The Pillow Man!
