Best Pillows for Side Sleepers in India under Rs.500

A budget of Rs.500 is decent enough to buy some good quality pillows from brands like Duroflex, MY ARMOR, and Wakefit. Sure, you might not be able to buy those smartgrid pillows from The Sleep Company or a nice contour cervical pillow. But, nevertheless, these below-mentioned best pillows under 500 are sure to be a good value-for-money deal for you.

Wakefit Hollow Fibre Best Sleeping Pillow Under 500

  1. Wakefit Hollow Fibre Best Sleeping Pillow Under 500

Probably, the top popular brand pillow you could go for in this budget is Wakefit. You get a 3-month warranty as well as a bag of 150gm extra fibre for free. The material is hollow fibre which is good but not the same as microfiber.

Hollow fibre vs microfibre💡

Hollow fibre is a synthetic polyester material with hollow spaces in between the fibres vs microfiber is more tightly woven together

Hollow fibre doesn’t retain heat as much as microfiber does

Microfibre is softer, durable & better quality than hollow fibre.

What about this memory foam pillow under Rs.500 on Flipkart with 6K+ ratings?
Too good to be true? Well, it is. On the face of it, it looks like a good deal to grab only until you find out that the pillow’s height is too low to offer optimal support to your neck and back. To put it simply, it is supposedly a kid's pillow though it's nowhere mentioned. Moral of the story: Be realistic as per your budget and get the best quality pillow you can.



2. My ARMOR Microfiber Sleeping Pillow for Side-Sleeper under 500

    Moving on to our list of the best pillows for side sleepers in India, MY ARMOR is a name you are sure to see. As mentioned in our article: Best Pillow Brands in India 2024 with buying guide, MY ARMOR after Sunday is the only brand to offer a 30-day trial period offer for its pillows (on its official website). The brand isn’t as known or popular as some others but it is still is one of the best pillow brands in India. Thanks to its good quality pillows, 6 months warranty vs 3 months given by other brands & the thousands of positive reviews MY ARMOR has.

    3. Duroflex Polyester Pillows under 500 (Pack of 2)

      Duroflex is yet probably one of the oldest mattress brands in India with a history dating back to 1963. With 50+ years of trust, it is one of the best pillow brands you could go for. However, we would recommend only going with Duroflex if you can shop from them in their offline stores. Online the reviews aren’t so well and you might receive old stock. Talking about the pillow, it's a polyester material similar to hollow fibre.

      Best Pillows for Side Sleepers in India under Rs.1000

      A budget of Rs.1000 is suitable to get some better quality and brand pillows from The Sleep Company, Sleepycat, Sleepyhead, Wakefit, etc. The warranty also significantly increases from 3 months to 12 months in this budget. Here are the best pillows under 1000 for side-sleepers in 2024 India:

      Sleepycat Adjustable Best Memory Pillow Under 1000

      Starting our list of best pillows for side-sleepers under 1000, we have got the Sleepycat shredded memory foam adjustable height pillow. It is slightly on the pricey side. But, if you are looking for the best quality pillow that is perfect for all kinds of sleepers, this is it, hands down. Thanks to adjustable height features (an extra complimentary bag to store excess fill), you can easily adjust the height of the pillow to suit your sleeping needs. The only con I feel this has is that at this price, they should have probably given some extra complimentary fill.

      Wakefit Microfibre Pillows Pack of 2 Under 1000

      These are the same pillows we shared earlier in our Rs.500 budget segment. The only major difference is that these are a pack of 2. Built from microfibre, this Wakefit pillow is soft and plush to sleep on. Its thickness also makes it good for side sleepers. However, a few cons you need to consider before you buy is that it comes with only 3 months of warranty as opposed to 1 year and because of the fill material, these pillows might only be suitable for people up to 60 kg of weight. If you weigh more, we would recommend going for a memory foam pillow or a slightly firmer pillow than microfibre.

      Don’t Get The Sleep Company Adjustable Microfibre Pillow ❌

      The Sleep Company is known for its high-end premium mattress and bedding products. However, in my research, I have found them to be slightly overpriced. Take this pillow from the Sleep Company for example, it costs some Rs.949 and comes with microfibre with no extra filling. Sure, you can adjust its height and consider it for its cotton bamboo fabric cover, but in the end, a microfibre pillow with a cotton cover and no warranty just doesn’t justify a price of Rs.949. Especially, when you have pillows like the Sleepycat mentioned above which offers good quality memory foam + 1-year warranty.

      Something about The Sleep Company 💡
      The Sleep Company mentions in its official FAQ page that all of its pillows come with a 1-year warranty. However, the brand doesn’t mention the same on its pillow product page which is a little inconvenient (and strange?).

Thanks to it being cervical and orthopaedic, it is one of the best pillows for side sleepers to sleep on.

      Sleepyhead Hollow Fibre Pillows for Side Sleepers (Pack of 2 under 1K)

      Sleepyhead Hollow Fibre Pillows for Side Sleepers (Pack of 2 under 1K)

      If your budget is a little tight. Maybe around 700 to 800 bucks, you can consider going for a Sleepyhead hollow fibre pillow. These pillows are made from hollow fibre which gives them a soft, cushiony feel and their soft, breathable fabric comes with pretty sturdy stitching. You also get an additional 150 gms of filling with them. Use this extra filling to make your pillow a little more firmer if needed since hollow fibre can feel too soft to some people.

            Sleepwell Impressions Curve Pillow

            2. Sleepwell Impressions Curve Pillow

              Sleepwell Impressions Curve pillow gets a well-deserved spot on our list for its impressions foam (similar to memory foam) pillow with its antimicrobial technology & 3 years warranty. The company says that the cover on top is also made from European Knitted fabric. As compared to some other pillows in this price range, we found the Sleepwell Impressions Curve Pillow to offer better quality & support.

              White Willow Orthopedic Sleeping Pillow Memory Foam King Size

              3. White Willow Orthopedic Sleeping Pillow Memory Foam King Size

                White Willow Orthopedic Memory Foam Sleeping Pillow (king size) is again one of the good pillows for side sleepers under a budget 3000. Thanks to its 5-inch memory foam thickness and being king-sized, you do get pretty good support for your neck and spine. However, the reason why we have kept it on the last spot is because as compared to other pillows in this price range, this one doesn’t feel as value for money. Also, there’s some initial smell to the foam so you need to keep the pillow outside in the sun for 1-2 days for the smell to dissipate.

                So, these were some of the best pillows for side sleepers in India 2024 under a budget of Rs.500, Rs.1000, Rs.2000 and Rs.3000. We have picked these pillows after carefully comparing different options, checking reviews, pillow fill, thickness and quality. We hope you found this list of best pillows useful. If you can extend your budget a little more to Rs.3999, you can consider getting the Sleepwell Nexa Curve Pillow which comes with a 4-year warranty.

                Interestingly, this 100% natural latex pillow from MM Foam comes with a 7-year warranty at a price of Rs.2800. The reason we didn’t include this pillow in our article is because of its thickness. It’s a thin pillow that is better suited for stomach sleepers or back sleepers as compared to side sleepers.
