Luckily, affordable bed pillows do in fact exist, and you don’t have to sacrifice on quality to have one.

While you may not be able to visit every store in the world to squeeze every pillow in search of the perfect one, you can however rely on other sleepers’ feedback to pick the best one for you. Below, we rounded up some of the best bed pillows under $50 you can buy online.

Casper Essential pillow
Designed for all sleeping positions, this Casper pillow offers a lush outer feel and responsive support thanks to the short fibers on the interior. It has over 300 five-star ratings on Target's website.

Promising review:
"I have tried many different brands of pillows. The Casper pillow is my favorite thus far. It suits my need for a firm yet not “brick hard” pillow. I sleep on my back & my side & this pillow is comfortable in both positions. It is not the cooling pillow but I have found that it doesn’t smother my head & make me sweat." — Pip
Wayfair Sleep memory foam pillow
This pillow has over 16,00 five-star ratings on Wayfair and is made of supportive, temperature-regulating shredded memory foam that relieves pressure on your head while you slumber. It's designed with ventilation to keep you cool throughout the night and has a machine-washable cover that can be unzipped and removed for laundry day.

Promising review: "I love it ! It’s perfect for my neck and back issues. It puffs right back up each morning! I would definitely recommend them!” — Angie
Quince premium down alternative pillow
Filled with hypoallergenic microfiber fill, this pillow has an overall rating of 4.8 stars on Quince and is available in two densities: soft/medium and medium/firm. It has a cotton sateen shell and gives a similar feeling of traditional down, but with allergies in mind.

Promising review: "I am very difficult when it comes to choosing a great pillow for bedtime. I usually sleep on my side and after giving these pillows a try my husband and I are both very happy with our decision to try them. We both have two, which is very convenient since our bed doesn’t have a headboard and when it’s bedtime and we both get our books, we position them behind us and have no issues with discomfort in our backs and necks. These are definitely a must if you are still in search of the perfect, soft, but not too soft, bedroom pillows. Price is unbeatable for the quality of this Quince product." — Alexia S.

This pillow supports my neck perfectly and I woke up refreshed with no pain!! I’m buying more of these! They are incredible!" — Hellothere
