10 Best Pillows in Malaysia For Every Type of Sleeper

10 best pillows in Malaysia

Most people overlook the fact that a good pillow is as important as a good mattress. A comfortable pillow can significantly improve your sleep quality by properly supporting your head and neck.

Therefore, choosing the perfect pillow to fit your sleeping style is crucial. 

Pillows come in a variety of material types, sizes, shapes, and thicknesses and to meet different sleeping styles. In this review, I will discuss the pros and cons as well as the characteristics of each type of pillow.

Here are my handpicked 10 best pillows for all different sleep positions.

Best Pillow for Side Sleepers

Goodnite Bamboo Charcoal Organic Natural Latex Pillow

Goodnite Bamboo Charcoal Organic Natural Latex Pillow Best Pillow for Side Sleepers

Best deal on Lazada Best deal on Shopee

Goodnite Bamboo Charcoal Organic Natural Latex Pillow Features Highlight:

  • Pillow height – 13cm
  • Thicker pillow – good for sleeping at the side
  • Highly breathable latex with bamboo filling pillow
  • Long warranty period

Goodnite Natural Latex Pillow’s Positive Review:

Firmer latex feel with this pillow so fully expect it to last long. Definitely no strong latex smell at all. Quite comfortable for my daily use over 1 week. Just note that while its sold & stated as 5 year warranty, however there was no warranty card in the box & buyer must self register online.

Goodnite Natural Latex Pillow’s Negative Review:

The pillow was as hard as a rock. Can’t even sleep. Severe neck pain after using. Seller said cannot refund. Worst purchase ever on Shopee.

As a side sleeper, you’ll need a thick, high pillow that is firm to keep your ear and the side of your face above your shoulder blades. 

Avoid overly soft and low pillows since this will put a strain on your ears and shoulders, causing shoulder pain the next day. 

Our choice of pillow for a side sleeper is the Goodnite Bamboo Charcoal Organic Natural Latex Pillow because it is higher than the average latex pillow, measuring 60cm x 40cm x 13cm. 

The pillow is made of natural latex with hundreds of tiny cores that provide excellent airflow and ventilation. It is enclosed in a bamboo charcoal fabric cover that reduces static cling.

With good neck support and medium firmness, it offers you a better sleeping experience that can help you relieve sore muscles, and improve breathing.

Goodnite Bamboo Charcoal Organic Natural Latex Pillow comes with a 5 years local manufacturer warranty.

Best Pillow for Neck Pain

KOYOTO K-115 Memory Foam Pillow

 Best deal on Lazada Best deal on Shopee

KOYOTO K-115 Memory Foam Pillow Features Highlight:

  • Wavey and center concave design
  • Memory foam pillow
  • Great for neck pain
  • Antibacterial outer case

KOYOTO K-115 Pillow’s Positive Review:

Bantal kualiti the bomb! Dah dua kali beli bantal yang sama. Memang berbaloi. Sakit tengkuk dan leher sebelum ni memang getting better. Bangun tidur pun rasa selesa je. Sangat recommended!

KOYOTO K-115 Pillow’s Negative Review:

Bantal agak keras. Struggle cari kedudukan selesa tp still x ok. Menambahkan sakit tengkuk & bahu. Agak terkilan sbb mahal tp tak berbaloi. Terpaksa cari bantal lain

This KOYOTO K-115 Memory Foam Pillow has a unique shape and contour which makes it different from a normal pillow.

It measures 60 x 32 x 11/6cm with a wavy and centre concave design specially created to help adjust to the natural contour of the head and neck to give the proper support and alignment needed while sleeping.

contour pillow supporting spine and neck

When you sleep, the concave design keeps your spine straight. Thus, it can relieve strain around the neck, shoulder and spine area which reduces neck pain issues. It is said to be effective in improving snoring and sleep apnea as well.

Users may not like the pillow on the first try because of its unusual shape. The pillow may take some time to adapt as well as few trials and errors before you can find the optimum posture.

KOYOTO K-115 Memory Foam Pillow comes with 2 years International Manufacturer Warranty.

Best Pillow for Back Sleepers

Getha Classic Award S Latex Pillow

Getha Classic Award S Latex Pillow Best Pillow for Back Sleepers

 Best deal on Lazada Best deal on Shopee

Getha Classic Award ‘S Latex Pillow Features Highlight:

  • 2-zone pin core design for better support
  • Pillow height – 11cm
  • Medium firmness
  • Good for back sleepers of all age groups

Customer’s Positive Review:

First time I bought this pillow. Decided to give it a try as this brand specializes in latex mattresses. It is soft but firm. Suitable for a side sleeper like me.

Customer’s Negative Review:

The latex smell a bit strong but is comfortable night sleep

GETHA 100% Natural Latex Award S Pillow comes from Getha, a household name in Malaysia when it comes to natural latex bedding products. 

Measuring at 62 x 37 x 11cm, this is a low height pillow with a softer feel and suitable thickness for individuals sleeping on their back. 10cm+ is the ideal pillow height for back sleepers of all age groups. 

Getha Classic Award S Latex Pillow's  diamond-shaped pin hole design

The Getha Award S Pillow uses a diamond-shaped pinhole design around the neck and head area to ensure maximum support. It provides excellent support for the head, neck, shoulder and spine. 

The latex is very flexible in that it can conform to your body but is still firm enough to provide sufficient support.

Based on my observation, multiple sellers are selling Getha pillows on Shopee and Lazada. But, there are customers who have complained that those pillows may not be genuine. 

So, I advise you to only buy from the official Getha store on Shopee/Lazada to prevent buying a counterfeit product.

Best Memory Foam Pillow

NeckPro Memory Foam Pillows use a smooth contour design. It doesn’t curve as much as KOYOTO K-115. And it has received more than 3700+ ratings with an average score of 4.8 out of 5.0 stars.

The ergonomic shape fits snugly around your head and neck. This type of contoured design is proven to give the overall best comfort to users. It helps to reduce pressure points and relieves discomfort on the neck and shoulder. 

The lower part of the pillow is 11cm thick which is meant for back sleepers, while the higher part is 13 cm which is suited for side sleepers. 

Please be aware that this memory foam pillow is much firmer/harder than a cotton pillow or a latex pillow. Younger users may find it uncomfortable.

The actual height is on 11cm, not 12cm, too low for me to sleep on it

Best Selling Pillow

Hilton Pillow 

Hilton Pillow Best Selling Pillow

Best deal on Lazada Best deal on Shopee

Hilton Pillow Features Highlight:

  • Very cheap
  • 100% Polypropylene Cotton with 100% cotton cover

Customer’s Positive Review:

Terbaiklah bantal ni, murah, berkualiti dan jahitan yang kemas.

Bantal lembut dan sedap. Kain pun sedap

Customer’s Negative Review:

Not satisfied with the item. Thought it was a pillow that a normal hotel will use but it isn’t.

Hilton Pillow is an immensely popular pillow that has sold more than 350,000+ units on Shopee. 

It is priced very competitively at only RM19.90 and can go for as low as RM11 during the promotion. So, you should consider getting this pillow if you have a small budget.

The Hilton Pillow is filled with 100% Polypropylene Cotton and the cover is made of 100% cotton. It has a size of 48 x 74cm.

When lying down on the Hilton pillow, you can feel that it is very fluffy and plushy.

However, it is important to note that polypropylene cotton deteriorates very quickly. Over time, it can become flat as a pancake and will no longer provide good support for your head and neck.

Best Down (Feather) Pillow

Ikea BERGVEN Pillow

Ikea BERGVEN Pillow Best Ikea Down Pillow

 Best deal on Lazada Best deal on Shopee

Ikea BERGVEN Pillow Features Highlight:

  • An easy-to-care pillow
  • Environment-friendly pillow – made of recycled materials
  • Good for stomach sleepers

There are not many choices for feather pillows in Malaysia. Getting one from Ikea is your best bet. 

Ikea BERGVEN Pillow measures 50 x 80 cm. The centre filling is 60% duck down and 40% duck feathers, which makes the core firmer. The outer filling is 90% duck down and 10% feathers which are soft and fluffy.

The down and feather combination provides good support and relieves pressure from your neck and shoulders, making you comfortable and relaxed to sleep on it.

The BERGVEN pillow is suitable for side sleepers as well as back sleepers. The pillow cover is made of 100% cotton with a 351 thread count. So, it feels great and comfy. 

On a side note, a down pillow is best to use with a pillow protector to protect the pillows from stains and dirt. 

Although a down pillow is safe to be machine-washed, I would advise against washing it too often as it can smash the filling and cause down clumping together.

Best Organic Pillow

LACASA Whole Buckwheat Hull Pillow

LACASA Whole Buckwheat Hull Pillow Best Organic Pillow

Best deal on Lazada Best deal on Shopee 

LACASA whole buckwheat hull pillow Features Highlight:

  • Has buckwheat hulls
  • Adjustable as can add/remove the hulls
  • Promote steady airflow

There have been lots of hype regarding buckwheat pillows aka Sobakawa pillows. 

Originated from Japan, these pillows are filled with buckwheat hulls, the hard outer casings of buckwheat seeds. 

The hulls give off a firm feel but they are very small and can be moulded to conform snugly to your head and neck. They are mostly likened to microbead pillows. But buckwheat hulls are 100% natural whereas microbead is a synthetic product.

LACASA Whole Buckwheat Hull Pillow is made of 100% natural

Buckwheat hulls can be added or removed from the pillow whenever you wish. Therefore, you can easily adjust the height and firmness of the pillow to suit your preferences.

Other than that, the buckwheat hulls promote steady airflow throughout the pillow. It cools you down and makes it easier for a deeper sleep.

LACASA buckwheat hull pillow is easy to care for and maintain. The casings are removable and washable. And you can buy new buckwheat hulls to refill or exchange the filling.

Best Cooling Pillow 

Ann Taylor Cooling Gel Memory Pillow

Ann Taylor Cooling Gel Pillow Features Highlight:

  • Cooling gel layer
  • Breathable design
  • Odourless, non allergenic

Customer’s Positive Review:

After use more than 1 week, it’s really support my neck ache during sleep

Mmg best giler bantal ni. Nyaman je rasa kepala tido mlm2. And tak payah nak adjust bantal bnyk kali sebab jenis material dia

Customer’s Negative Review:


If you’re a hot sleeper, you should check out the Ann Taylor Cooling Gel Memory Pillow. There is one layer of cooling gel to keep the user cool and sleep soundly throughout the night.

Ann Taylor Cooling Gel Pillow is a memory foam pillow with a size of 56 x 36 x 13 cm. It is a bit high so it will not be suitable for stomach sleepers.

On the plus side, the cover can be removed and washed with a washing machine. It is also odourless and non-allergenic, suitable even for kids.


Tempur Pillow Review

Tempur Pillows are made from Tempur material, which has been approved and rated highly by numerous experts and reviewers. It is definitely a reliable and trusted pillow.

However, in Malaysia, Tempur pillows are being marked up as much as 300%. This is an excessive amount.

You can check out the Tempur UK website that the Tempur Cloud Comfort is selling for £95 (around RM556). But on Lazada, it is listed for RM1,465!

Due to the pricing issue, I don’t recommend getting Tempur Pillows. If you can afford the premium, then you are free to get one of those as long as it helps with your sleep.
