lazyweb, poll time!

When you sleep, how do you use your pillow ?

  1. the middle part of the back of your head rests on the lower end of your pillow, your neck floats freely, your shoulder blades rest on the bed
  2. the middle part of the back of your head rests on the pillow, your neck rests lightly on the lower end of your pillow, your shoulder blades rest on the bed
  3. the middle part of the back and your shoulder blades rest on the pillow
  4. something else (please specify)


  1. Definitely #2.

  3. I like thin pillows; I fold them in half and sleep with the side of my head on top of the part of the pillow where the two ends meet (as opposed to the curved bent middle part).

  4. #2, though I just spend all night turning the pillow over to get the cold side anyway.

  5. I have one of those memory foam pillows that has a raised roll on the top and the bottom. I tend to sleep with that roll under my neck, so that my head is resting in the middle of the pillow, and my shoulders are on the bed right up next to the edge of the pillow. This keeps my neck supported and is more comfortable than trying to fold a pillow for this or flipping a down pillow over and over again to get this. I often take the pillow with me when I travel or else I’ll have neck pains and headaches after sleeping.

  7. #4 – Side of head on pillow, pillow tucked against my neck. Second pillow between knees. If I want to lie on my back, I usually discard the pillow.

  8. #1 mostly.

  9. often I wrap my arms around a king sized pillow and rest my head on the top end of the pillow while laying side ways.

  10. #4: sleeping on the side, one pillow under my head, one above (to stop sound & light); oh, I and change position at least on hundred times during the night.

  11. Like comment 3, only reversed (top of the head meeting the fold). This way, my neck and shoulder keep the pillow folded all night. I sleep on my side, so it’s the only way to go.

  12. #4 – Both arms laid across the pillow, my shoulders around the bottom of the pillow, possibly slightly off the pillow and my head face-down or slightly to the side on top of my hands

  16. Laying on my stomach, with my arms under the lower edge of the pillow, and the side of my head laying on the pillow.

  17. I don’t use pillows when I sleep. If I do use a small one, it’s folded to support the neck.

  18. A pillow that fills the void between the bed, my shoulder and my head keeping the spine straight.

    And a second pillow between my knees because it improves my sleep quality :)

  19. #1, but only because my pillow isn’t fluffy enough.

  20. #4. The left shoulder rests on the mattress, and the left ear rests on the center (approximately) of the pillow. No silly pillows between my knees (the idea!).

    Not everyone sleeps on their back, you know ;-)
