After having a lot of Patients ask me about the right mattress AND pillow, I have always said "You have to find the right fit for YOU." Not everyone prefers the same sleep position, but different positions require a different pillow size and that size varies on the size of the person.
Back sleepers should not have a pillow behind their head pushing their head WAY forward causing snoring and a "bent over old man" position later in life. Imagine if you were standing straight up and shoving your head as far forward as a pillow under your head does. That would not feel good and it cuts off your breathing tube causing snoring at night. That breathing tube needs to be nice and open! Try placing a pillow or two under your knees while you are on your back to take pressure off of your low back, but NO PILLOW UNDER YOUR HEAD.
If you are a side sleeper, your pillow needs to be thick enough to keep your spine straight. A good estimate is to get a pillow as thick as the distance from the outside of your shoulder to your cheek, so when you lay on your side, your head is supported perfectly and spine is straight.
Sleeping on your stomach is a big no-no!! Having all that torsion on your neck and spine can cause horrible back problems down the road!! Never sleep on your stomach. Get a body pillow to put in front of you to wrap your arms and legs around if you need help getting off of your stomach.
I always lay on my back first and prop my side sleeping pillow up against my headboard. At some point, I roll to my side and grab my pillow because I usually wake up on my side. This is perfectly healthy.

cushion/support I recommend is easily inflatable to whatever thickness you need to put behind your low back at whatever spot you need it - not where the car or airplane seat designer THOUGHT you might need it! Some use this as a seat cushion to ease tailbone pain or any pain after sitting for a long time. The best part is that it is completely adjustable. You just gently blow air in to whatever thickness you desire and place the pillow wherever you need it! It can also be used as a pillow to lay your head on at night wherever you may end up whether it is home or away!
I hope all this info helps you get a better nights sleep in the right position with the right bed, pillow, and supplementation if needed!
