Best Pillows with Inner Springs

There is a large debate when it comes to the traditional spring mattress in relation to the new and innovative foam matters, and I must say today there is a similar argument when it comes to pillows.

Although the latest innovation in pillows was the memory foam, on the contrary direction, the latest craze is the spring pillow.

Memory Foam vs. Spring Pillow

Memory foam has long been known for its exceptional ability to conform to the natural contours of a sleeper’s body,basing itself on body heat while providing automatic pressure relief and similar pain relief. This is regardless of your sleep style or position.

With a spring pillow, you cannot really achieve this, although, the spring pillow offers much better support when it comes to relieving pain, and is much more resilient.

Pros and Cons of a Memory Foam Pillow


  • Memory foam shapes itself to your contours and sleeping position.
  • It offers good support and luxurious comfort.
  • It gives you a soft, enveloping feeling.
  • Aids in isolating motion.


  • Memory foam is quite expensive.
  • It can get very hot during the night as it absorbs body heat.
  • Has an initial chemical smell to it.

Pros and Cons of a Spring Pillow


  • More readily available and much more affordable.
  • There are a few varieties to choose from.
  • Has a more springy and reactive feel.
  • It offers better support for pain relief.
  • Much more resilient and durable.


  • Some varieties that are more mainstream do not offer the best support.
  • You will need to find a more expensive model to get the best results.
  • These pillows offer more firm support and do not have that soft plush feeling.

Benefits of a Spring Pillow

A spring pillow will provide support and comfort without relying on contouring to your body for comfort.
The choice in firmness is not that extensive, so most spring pillow offer firm support rather than softness, the firm support is often better for your back and likewise relieving pain than a softer option

What to Look For in a Good Spring Pillow

I would personally recommend that you invest a bit when it comes to a spring pillow, as the cheaper models may not offer you the best or lasting characteristics.

Look for something with separate, independent pocket coils, around 35 or more. You may also have the option of a pillow with a warm and cool side, which is because of two different fabric types used on either side of the pillow.

Then there is likewise the rest of the fill and the cover of the pillow, look at temperature control, hypoallergenic and dust mite resistance, as well as a cotton washable cover.
