    How many pillows do you sleep with? I don't just mean on your bed. I mean under your head. I have a king sized bed with 4 pillows on but I only use 2 of them. The others are just for show.

    A single pillow (normally), but plenty of blankets, even in the Summer. Don't ask why, I just have a need to be bundled up when I'm sleeping.

    Since you asked, two pillows: a memory foam one for my head, and a big body pillow for my legs, because I cannot stand having my knees and ankles touch each other while I'm trying to sleep.

    Three. I have three on my bed and I use all of them. I like to sleep with one or two under my head and the remaining pillows on top of me. It's very comfortable.

    Three. I have two shoved into one pillow case though to give the impression I only use two. I like to have the large space and multiple areas to shove my hands into while I sleep.

    I swear every time you make one of these topics I instantly have an incredibly childish reply in mind. I'll keep it to myself this time, in an attempt not to embarrass myself any further than I already have.

    One pillow is the properly proper amount of pillows, although I used to sleep with two. Now, blankets on the other hand...I would check excessive amount despite only usually sleeping with between 2-5 depending on time of year and if my father is into heating the house or not. But I keep about ten on hand just in case. (I like having options.)

    two billows are the minimum required for comfiness, and it depends on the type of pillow. i need a body pillow to wrap myself around, then another pillow to rest my head -- i prefer to have two pillows to arch my neck.

    I've been using just one lately, but I generally find that I sleep more comfortably with two pillows under my head.

    Although it also depends on the softness of the pillows. The reason I use two is to keep my head slightly elevated, so if I have one thick really firm pillow, that tends to do the trick. Likewise, pillows that are ridiculously soft, such as most hotel pillows, which your head just sinks right into, I tend to have a hard time sleeping with. So, for all intents and purposes, given average size and softness, two pillows under my head does the trick.

    I have two. The flatter one is mine, the bigger one hurts my neck so my boyfriend uses it.

    There is no such thing as too many pillows. Some people i could mention (@Jamie ) sleep with one ****ing concrete slab flat thing which murders your neck and thinks that is totally acceptable. No. I need 2-3 in a perfect world at least.

    I never saw the need for a pillow, they are really awkward for me.

    I have 9 pillows in which I lay out across the mattress. Two more pillows are used for my head which are aligned perpendicular to each other. Then I have 2 pillows between my legs, one under my arms and a body pillow on each side of me. I then have 3 pillows put on top of me by my mother and have her tuck me in tightly so none of them shift around. It's a very delicate process that if ruined will have me wake up in the night screaming.
