7 neck pillows you won’t mind being seen in public with

Even Maison Margiela makes one.

by Clark Williams | 03.04.2018

A long flight can get you singing an alt-version of Khia’s “My Neck, My Back”—and not because you just had a mile-high experience.

That’s because there’s really, truly no comfortable way to sleep. And unless you’ve found yourself with a seat in business class or above, the best option is to properly equip yourself with a neck pillow that will at least minimize the usual head bobbing that accompanies mid-air zzz’s.

No, it won’t magically send you into Dreamville during your red eye—but anything that will get you feeling a little less like a human trash heap and a little more like your normal self when you finally do deplane is worth the investment.

Here are 7 neck pillows that work—and actually look good.

Ostrich Go Travel Pillow, $60

You know that insane "ostrich pillow" you pull over your head? Same brand, only you'd actually want to be seen in public wearing this one.

Lauren Manoogian Neck Pillow, $220

The Charlotte York of neck pillows (which isn't a bad thing).
