Burdette: With all the different kinds of pillows you make, it’s very difficult to figure out which one would be best for me. I sleep on both my side and back, but mostly on my side. I need a pillow that supports my neck and also doesn’t cause my ear to hurt after sleeping on my side. Can you give me some guidance as to pillow selection?

Thank you for your question!  We do manufacture and sell a wide variety of pillows, because there are a lot of different types of sleepers.  For you, I recommend the Beyond Down Side Sleeper pillow.  It should fit you like a glove. So says Happy Dan The Pillow Man!
