Pillow Sizes

With so many pillows on the market, you want to be sure to pick the perfect one. This can be quite a challenge! You need your pillow to not only feel good under your head, but you also need it to be the right size for your bed. Choosing the right-sized pillow is necessary to create the perfect sleep set-up. But don’t worry, we have all the information you need to pick the perfect pillow size for you and your bed.

Fun Fact: Pillows are good for your health. They support your head, neck and spine, keeping you comfortable and your body properly positioned during sleep. When your spine is properly aligned, you will have better circulation and less joint pain.

Standard Pillow Sizes for Beds
From small throw pillows to full-sized body pillows, you have a lot of options. It’s time to learn the ins and outs of each type of pillow so you can make a well-educated pillow purchase. 
Body Pillows
Pillow Size: 51 cm x 137 cm
If you like big pillows, a body pillow may be for you! While they are too big for a twin or full-sized mattress (the pillow will hang over the mattress by quite a bit), they will fit on a queen or king-sized bed. 
Many people choose to sleep with their whole body wrapped around these large pillows, hence the name. They aren’t typically used under your head, but instead between your knees as a way to align your hips as you sleep. Feel free to snuggle the body pillow all night or just use it as an extra-large pillow for your head. 
King Sized Pillow
Pillow Size: 51 cm x 92 cm
You probably guessed that a king-sized pillow is designed to fit a king-sized bed. Two king-sized pillows will stretch across a king-sized bed. One king-sized pillow will completely cover the span of a twin bed and some people may like having the pillow stretch across the whole mattress. You never have to worry about your head rolling off your pillow at night!
You will need to buy special king-sized pillowcases for king-sized pillows. They are much too long for a regular pillowcase. Take the opportunity to buy yourself all new bedding - you deserve a nice treat for a good night's sleep!  
Queen Sized Pillow
Pillow Size: 51 cm x 92 cm
Queen-size pillows are designed for a queen-sized bed. They are the same height as a standard pillow but a little bit longer. A nice, fluffy queen-sized pillow will look nice on a twin-sized bed, reaching almost to the edges of the mattress. Two pillows will fit on a queen mattress end to end. The perfect size is not by mistake! They were designed for two people to have one pillow each on a queen-sized bed.
Queen pillows will fit into a regular-sized pillow case but it will be a little bit of a squeeze. However, a nice tight pillow case can be nice to sleep on. It will also add to the plump look of the pillow. 
Standard Size Pillow
Pillow Size: 51cm x 66 cm
This pillow is best for a twin-sized mattress. It is the ideal size for a single person. Two standard-sized pillows will fit on a full mattress while you can put three of this size pillow across a king-sized bed. If you have a smaller bed, this is the perfect pillow for you. They will also fit neatly in a regular-sized pillowcase.

Did you know that it’s recommended you replace your pillows every two years? You are probably overdue! But now you are ready to buy pillows perfectly sized for your aesthetic preferences and your sleep patterns. A good pillow will help you get a better night’s sleep.
