Chronic stiffness, pain, and discomfort of the neck can ignite a serious craving for realignment. While ergonomic office chairs, targeted stretching, and frequent trips to a chiropractor’s office may help, one lousy night’s sleep can put you right back where you started.

But wouldn’t it be nice if you could get realigned and relieved from your discomfort while sleeping soundly? Orthopedic pillows, like this popular option from Nature’s Guest, promise a remedy. I took this pillow home and tested it myself, evaluating its pros, cons, effectiveness, and overall value. Read on for the breakdown.

Design: Comfy contouring

This product doesn’t look or feel like a typical fluffy bed pillow. It only comes in one size (which fits into a queen-size pillowcase and slides easily into a king), and at around 4 pounds, it’s relatively heavy and noticeably firm.

Design-wise, it features contouring around the sides and a dip in the center. This made it so my neck was supported for side and back sleeping, allowing me to shift between sleeping positions comfortably. The edges of the Cervical Support Pillow are gusseted with secure fabric strips, which provides additional support.

The design supports back and side sleeping, allowing you to shift between positions comfortably.

Small zippers on each side open directly to the existing filling. Extra filling (which is included) can be stuffed into the pillow through the zipper openings and distributed to areas where you want added density and firmness. Alternatively, you can decrease the firmness by removing some of the existing filling. The dual zippers also make it easy to adjust each side to individual firmness levels.
I found the pillow to be comfortable for both sleeping and reading in bed. By morning, it provided relief from my neck, which is usually stiff. It also discouraged me from tossing and turning at night, improving my sleep efficiency. Overall, the pillow’s features make it stand out in terms of comfort and performance.

Material: Soft hypoallergenic cotton

The Cervical Support Pillow from Nature’s Guest is made from high-quality hypoallergenic cotton. With its soft and slightly silky fabric, the pillow stays cool throughout the night. It comes in vacuum-sealed plastic packaging and quickly inflates to its full shape within a minute or two of opening. 

The dual zippers also make it easy to adjust each side to individual firmness levels.

The product also includes extra synthetic microfiber filling, which allows for adjustable support throughout the contours of the pillow. As warned in the instructions, the filling snagged a little on the zippers when I added more. Also, the manufacturer notes that adding too much filling can put pressure on the seams of the pillow.

Texture: Semi-silky to the touch

The exterior of the pillow has a somewhat silky feel with a very subtle white-on-white floral design woven into the cotton. Its soft, smooth texture allows the pillow to slide easily into a pillowcase. I opted to slip mine into a pillowcase to preserve the white exterior.

Weighing around 4 pounds, it’s relatively heavy and notably firm.

Washing: Not recommended

Unfortunately, this pillow doesn’t appear to be washable. Cleaning and care instructions aren’t provided by the manufacturer. Since the filling volume is adjustable through zippers on each side, it’s probably inadvisable to remove the filling to wash the cotton casing, let alone the entire pillow. That being said, the actual pillow is not likely to need washing, as it fits into a pillowcase.

While machine-washing isn’t suggested, the manufacturer does recommend placing the pillow in the dryer to fluff it up after opening the vacuum-sealed packaging. However, as mentioned above, my pillow expanded to its full shape very quickly, so I didn’t need to do this.

Price: Not bad for under $50

This pillow is priced at just under $50. For those who’ve tried endless corrective solutions for persistent stiffness or pain, we think that this is a steal—especially because it was so effective at relieving neck discomfort. 

Competition: Lots of options

When it comes to orthopedic and ergonomic pillows designed to relieve neck, back, and shoulder ailments, Nature’s Guest does have some competition. If you browse cervical pillows, you’ll find a wide range of choices with both higher and lower price points.

Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Ergo Neck Pillow: In the higher price range, the Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Ergo Neck Pillow sells for roughly $100. Although it comes in four sizes (small, medium, large, and travel), the measurements don’t align with standard pillowcase sizes (standard, queen, and king).

Coisom Cervical Contour Pillow for Neck and Shoulder Pain: The Coisom Cervical Contour Pillow for Neck and Shoulder Pain is comparable to the Nature’s Guest pillow in terms of both features and price. However, Coisom’s pillowcase is washable, which is an added bonus.

Mkicesky Side Sleeper Contour Memory Foam Pillow: The Mkicesky Side Sleeper Contour Memory Foam Pillow retails between $50 and $75. Unlike the Nature’s Guest Cervical Support Pillow, it’s washable and claims to be comfortable for stomach sleepers in addition to those who prefer sleeping on their back or side. 

EPABO Contour Memory Foam Pillow Orthopedic Sleeping Pillow: For around $40, you can opt for the EPABO Contour Memory Foam Pillow Orthopedic Sleeping Pillow, which comes in multiple sizes (standard and queen). Similar to the Mkicesky pillow, it supports three sleeping positions.

To be sure, the Nature’s Guest pillow is not necessarily uncomfortable for stomach sleeping, but the design is intended for back and side sleepers. When it comes to mid-range pillows for neck pain, this product provides sufficient results.

Final Verdict

It has our stamp of approval.

The Nature's Guest Cervical Support Pillow doesn’t fall short of its promises. It’s comfortable, adjustable, and effective at alleviating neck discomfort. While it only comes in one size, it fits into a queen-size pillowcase and slides easily into a king. If you have lingering discomfort in your back, neck, or shoulders, it’s an excellent solution.
