Finding a good pillow isn’t all that easy. It feels like there are so many marketing words thrown around and it really jumbles the scene when trying to do research.

We went ahead and did our best to pull some information from around the internet to list out our favorite latex pillows. If you don’t know, latex pillows are SUPER popular right now because of how resilient, clean, and comfortable they are. Check out our best picks below!

Overall best – Dosaze ThermaCool Latex Pillow – $74.99

We chose the Dosaze as our first pick for how comfortable and cool it is. Having a pillow that stays cool is TRULY magical and when you combine that with the open cell technology, hypoallergenic design, and spinal alignment shape, it’s easy to see why it won.

Why we love it:

  • naturally harvested latex
  • incredibly cooling
  • resistant to allergens, dust mites, mold, and bugs

Best for aches and pains – Saatva Latex Pillow – $155

You can take out an inner pouch and use it under your back or leave it regular sized to encourage back sleeping.

Why we love it:

  • Adjustable thickness
  • shredded latex makes for a down-alternative
  • comes with an organic cotton cover

Great value – Brooklyn Bedding Talalay Latex Pillow – $89

We all need a little value occasionally. Splurging is nice, but can’t be done all the time (as much as we would like). If you want a solid latex pillow for a reasonable value, the Brooklyn is a great option. It’s Talalay latex but it isn’t shredded, making it firmer than other options (which some people love).

Why we love it:

  • great value
  • perfect for people who like a firm pillow
  • perforated design allows for maximum cooling

Eco-friendly option – Avocado Green Pillow – $89

Why we love it:

  • GOLS-certified shredded latex and kapok fibers and vegan
  • adjustable loft
  • encourages back sleeping

Best for side sleepers – Eli & Elm Cotton Side Sleeper – $120

Hot sleepers know that having a cooling pillow and sheet combo is truly heavenly. We can’t speak to the sheets today, but we can say that the Birch is one of the best options when it comes to cooling latex pillows. It’s made of shredded Talaylay latex and organic wool.
