How To Use The Shoulder Pillow

Back sleeping with The Shoulder Pillow

Back Position

While lying on your back: Your head should rest on the headrest (#1) and your back on the thinner portion of the pillow (#2). The small of your back (lumbar curve) should be at the lower edge of the pillow. Make sure you don’t lie to low on the pillow.

Sleeping on your side

Snug Position

Lying on your side: You can simply turn onto your side so the shoulder drops into the cutout (#4). Your head is again on the headrest (#3) just above the cutout, and most importantly, your side chest wall should rest on the thicker portion of the lower pillow (#5). The most common mistake is to NOT get your torso onto the thicker portion, thus defeating the purpose of the pillow.

Sleeping with arm under the pillow

Hug Position

Lying on your side: Slide the down arm through the cutout (#4) and under the pillow. There is a channel built into the pillow that reduces the amount of pressure on that arm. Again, the head rests on the headrest (#3) and the side chest wall on the thicker part of the lower pillow. Simply flip the pillow over to lie on your opposite side.

Lying With Your Partner

Two shoulder pillows can be placed side by side in various configurations to allow you to sleep comfortably with your partner. Experiment to find out what works best for you. We find that putting the two pillows together with the cutouts adjacent works great for snuggling with your partner on your sides and reduces that “dead arm” that you typically get in the middle of the night.
