Latex pillows are generally considered the firmest pillow, and can resist mold and dust mites, according to WebMD. These pillows are often contoured for neck support, and can help people who have back and neck alignment problems.
IF THE PILLOW FITS
Then there are specific pillows designed for specific uses. The body pillow, for instance, is long and is meant to help support the body and take some pressure off the head and neck. Cuddledown makes a neck support pillow -- with either natural or synthetic fill -- that is designed to cradle the curve of your neck.
Poly cluster pillows at Bed Bath & Beyond are designed to feel and move like down, for people who are allergic to down. They're coated with silicon so they move around in the pillow like down.
One way to see if the pillow fits -- literally -- while shopping is to stand next to a wall in the position in which you sleep. Then put the pillow between your head and the wall, and ask someone to tell you if your neck and spine are in line.
Just don't fall asleep while doing it.
