A pillows thickness is also something to keep in mind, you should choose thickness based on the position you sleep in. If you sleep mostly on your side you will want a thicker pillow to get the neck support you need. If you sleep on your back than a thin pillow would be your best choice, a thin pillow will give you enough neck support but won't cause neck strain. A feather pillow can also be made flat so would also be a good choice if you sleep on your back.
First of all, a neck pillow is a pillow with built in support for the neck. A couple of names used synonymously with neck pillows are: support pillows or contour pillows. Sometimes the term orthopedic pillow or chiropractic pillow is used as well.
You should also consider your size and body frame when buying the best neck pillow for yourself. If you are smaller or taller than average a standard neck pillow may not be right for you. The reason is that your neck may not fit the pillow adequately causing you to either not get the best support or even forcing your neck into incorrect posture. If you are too small for a standard size pillow or have a very short neck the cervical roll may push your head forward. This simply causes head flexion and may straighten your curvature when sleeping on your back versus putting the smooth curvature into the neck.
