As we head into winter, it’s important to ensure you’re ready for full-on hibernation mode. No, you won’t be sleeping for months straight like a bear. But it’s still essential to set yourself up for sleep success during the cold weather months. After all, your body gets a chance to rest, recover and restore itself when you’re getting good, quality shut-eye.

When it comes to creating an optimal sleep environment, soft sheets and a cozy blanket are key. But so are the right pillows that properly support your head and neck.

Deciding on the right pillows can obviously pose quite the challenge if you’re not able to actually try them out IRL. Your next best option? Reading reviews and seeing what other customers have to say about them. Believe it or not, shoppers often leave really thorough reviews on products they love (or hate). So, you can totally mine the comments to see if a particular bed pillow is right for you.

With that in mind, you’ll find five of the best bed pillows below that have thousands of rave reviews. If you need new ones, now is the time to invest.
