This curved pillow from Tempur-Pedic (the Swedish mattress company that introduced memory foam to the U.S.) is shaped to gently cradle the head, whether you’re a side, back, or stomach sleeper. The company is recognized by NASA and certified by the Space Foundation; it traces its roots to NASA technology.
