Back Sleepers are unique in that a firm, but soft pillow feels the best. Back sleepers need cervical neck support, but also need less pressure on the back of the head. Contour shaped pillows are perfect for this. They are designed with a valley for the head and an arch for the neck. The nice thing about that shape is that if you end up rolling to your side, you'd still receive the same benefit as a side sleeper. That is, support for the neck with less pressure on the head. Contour pillows are usually made from a pressure relieving memory foam.
If your choice turns out to be a cotton filled pillow you should replace it when needed rather than washing it. Because over time cotton pillows will become very dense because of the body weight that is constantly put on them. And remember cotton pillows are very affordable so replacing them when needed is worth the cost to avoid health problems that can be directly related to breathing in mold.
Just as there is a wide range of pillow types (there are wedge pillows, neck support pillows and body pillows to help sleepers with physical problems, and feather pillows, water-based pillows, decorative floor pillows and kids novelty pillows) so we have an endlessly delightful range of pillow fabrics.

Using a pillow while sleeping on your side. When lying on one side, the pillow should support the head and neck so that the natural spine has a straight horizontal line.

In general, if you like to sleep on your stomach, a softer and flatter pillow is probably your best bet. A softer pillow helps relieve tension on your neck that a firmer pillow might increase. Sleeping on your stomach is naturally accompanied by a twisting of the neck. A firm pillow might also add strain on the neck by forcing your head up. So, for a stomach sleeper to have the most comfortable sleep, choose a soft, flat pillow, or a pillow that allows you to add or remove the fill to personalize your comfort. Good choices for the stomach sleeper might include a Dacron Polyester filled pillow, or the Eco-Basics Pillow.
