Whether side sleeper or back sleeper – the orthopaedic pillows from SEVEN SUNDAYS support you in every sleeping position.Expert Advice here
In our opinion, the best pillows are to serve your health. During sleep your body will regenerate itself, but a poor pillow will likely result in the exact opposite: you wake up with neck pain.
It is estimated that up to 80% of us suffer from neck tension or neck pain – often caused by sitting at a desk for long periods of time, heavy physical work, a lack of exercise or poor posture. Frequently staring at a smartphone with an unnaturally tilted head also puts a strain on your neck, as it adds an up to 10 times higher load on your cervical spine. Therefore, orthopedic neck pillows are becoming more and more popular. All of our neck pillow designs feature specific orthopedic properties and can help to position your head and spine in the most natural position, helping to release any muscle tension. On top, they are super hygienic, comfortable and durable.
From a health point of view, pillows with a down or feather filling are only suitable to a very limited extend.
Which explains the rise of specialized pillows meet the requirements of different sleep types. Because the ergonomically ideal positioning of the head and cervical spine depends on the preferred sleeping position. The anatomically correct lying position is entirely different for side sleepers, stomach sleepers or back sleepers. The orthopaedically designed pillows from SEVEN SUNDAYS help you to ideally position your spine based on your sleep type – for maximum relaxation and the highest level of sleep comfort.
Side sleeper pillow: The majority of people prefer to sleep on their side. For side sleepers, there is both a risk of the pillow being too high or too low, forcing the spine into an unnatural lateral curve. When the spine is unnaturally bent, the typical tensions in the neck area come up. The required height of the pillow mainly depends on the width of your shoulders. Therefore a good pillow for side sleepers should definitely be adjustable in height. Also, it should not be too big in size so your shoulders do not lie on the pillow.
Back sleeper pillow: Sleeping on your back is generally the healthiest position for the body. Compared to the lateral position, back sleepers need less support. Nevertheless, the correct head height is also important in the supine position so that the cervical spine is not bent or overstretched. This can not only cause pain, but also promote a hunched back or a hollow back. A pillow with an orthopaedic contour cut with an indentation for the head is useful so that the spine maintains its natural S-shape.
Belly sleeper pillow: From an orthopaedic point of view, the belly position is the most unfavourable sleeping position. Especially the cervical spine is subject to lateral rotation to. Obviously, this tilting of you head to the sides can not be avoided with a special pillow either. Accordingly, abdominal sleepers need a pillow that is as flat and comparatively soft as possible – e.g. a down pillow with orthopaedic properties that remains functional in supporting the neck even if the lying position is changed during the night.
Healthy sleep is also a question of hygiene. You should definitely consider this when buying a pillow.
We know that in most households, pillow care often comes short in everyday life. Even though half of all the skin scales you are losing during sleep originate from your head. In addition, you sweat most frequently around your shoulder, neck and head area. That is why we have placed our emphasis on maximizing hygienic features when designing our pillows. The covers of all SEVEN SUNDAYS pillows are washable at 60 degrees Celsius as well as dryable (gentle cycle). You can wash them every 14 days without hesitation. As for the down pillow you can even wash and dry the inner pillow – can it get any more hygienic? We also use extremely robust foams for our pillows, as acid sweat can attack the material.
No matter how well you take care of your pillow or its manufacturer: each pillow should be replaced every three to four years to ensure the optimal sleeping climate.

After a Severe Blockage of My Cervical Spine (Including a Visit to the Chiropractor), I Intensively Researched Prior to Getting a New Pillow.
Had always had an 80×80 cm down pillow before. In the end, I decided to give the Seven Sundays back sleeper pillow a shot. After the first night, I was afraid to have made the wrong decision as my neck was still quite tense. HOWEVER: The absolute killer is the adjustable height feature! In the second night I took out the lower layer and reduced the height of the pillow (I am on the small body type side) and since then I wake up completely relaxed! More than satisfied!
Probably the 6th Pillow I’ve Given a Shot.
I am very satisfied with the down pillow from Seven Sundays. I regularly had to struggle with an “embarrassed” neck. Over the last few years I have tried these ergonomic block pillows from time to time – but I can’t get the hang of them. Need feathers under the head! The down pillow is great with the head area that works! I used to wake up in the morning often and just lie on the pillowcase – today my neck is always well supported and I wake up in the morning with my neck free. I can definitely recommend it!
Been Using the Pillow for 3 Weeks and Am Satisfied.
I had measured my old pillow and ordered the exact same height (12cm). Therefore, lying comfort was as usual very good, no neck pain or tension. Right after unpacking the pillow had no unpleasant chemical smell at all – the slight whiff of organic Aloe Vera additive smells great. I feel like it might be wearing off a bit over time – maybe I’m used to it. Anyways, I could sleep on it right away. The foam is pleasantly soft and supports well. The cover has an amazing touch to it. I don’t even use any extra covers on it. Delivery was fast and the packaging was fine. Thanks!
Got the Pillow for Side Sleepers Because I’VE Been Having Issues With My Neck and Shoulders for Quite Some Time.
In the beginning I wasn’t exactly sure if I wouldn’t miss my down pillow. But since I barely slept through the night and often got up in the morning with dizziness, I had to be open for a change. After a tip from my physiotherapist friend from Kempten, I got the ergonomic side sleeper pillow. At the beginning a bit unfamiliar because of the unusual shape. However: it works for me! I hope to keep my complaints under control or at best get it rod of them for good! So from my end: it’s a buy and I can recommend the side sleeper pillow! Thanks for the great product.
I got Interested in the Back Sleeper Pillow as It Helped My Wife’s Neck Pain – and She Had Tried Quite a Few
I made an appointment with a Seven Sundays expert who showed me and my wife the pillow and adjusted it. We have both been sleeping on back sleeping pillows for three months now. Neither I nor my wife wake up at night with neck pain. Insted, we get up fully relaxed in the morning! Amazing side benefit: my wife is no longer woken up by my snoring when I lie on my back. 5* stars plus …The mattress will follow soon!!! Thank you very much for this great pillow.
I Prefer to Sleep on My Stomach, but Toss and Turn a Lot at Night
I have tested many pillows but most of them were always too high and I slipped down at night, resulting in my neck not being supported at all. I am small (161 cm) and finally I have no more neck pain when I sleep on my stomach, even when I turn on my back I always lie well. I have taken out the lower part of the pillow. At first I was irritated to have to buy new covers – but I ended up using the pillow without any extra cover. It is pleasantly soft and looks really stylish. Big plus: Covers are super easy to clean (washing machine, dryer, no problem) I am happy with the pillow. Quite an eye-catcher.
I Never Write Product Reviews, but for This Pillow I Made an Exception!
With my old pillow I woke up regularly super tense in the morning. My entire shoulder and back area was totally tensed up. Since I have been using the Seven Sundays pillow, these aches have been blown away. You automatically lie down in the right position and are comfortable – even on your back! Love it!
Healthy sleeping decoded: A pillow suiting your individual sleeping habits and physical needs is your gateway to regeneration during during sleep.
However, no matter how ergonomically advanced the pillow – if your mattress is too soft, for example, the support function of the pillow will likely not be as effective. Your upper body will sink deeper than it should, which will result in your head unnaturally being bent.
