Some say two’s company, and three’s a crowd. Others say the more the merrier. So, how many pillows do you actually need?

Sleep alone, and don’t like extra fluff: One.

Sleep alone, but need some extra support:  Two.

Sleep with a partner: At least two.

Sleep with a partner who snores: Three. One for each ear and one for them.

Sleep with a canine companion:  Three. One for you and two for them.

Work from bed: Four. One for your head, one for an arm rest, one for your breakfast, and one in case of emergency.

Barely sleep and always binge-watch: Five. Three to prop you up, one to prop up your laptop, and one to hold your snacks.

Prefer to sleep confined within a pillow wall: Seven. That’s two by your head, two on each side of you, and one for your feet.

Dream of living in a pillow fort palace: Twelve pillows. Please google pillow fort instructions before attempting the construction.
