Bed size typically dictates pillow size. Standard pillows are used for twin beds, queen pillows for queen beds, and king pillows for king beds. This isn’t a rule though, and many people choose pillow sizes based on personal preferences.

For instance, one king size pillow fits on a twin bed. If you prefer standard pillows, two fit on a queen bed and three fit on a king bed. Many luxury hotels pile four king pillows on their queen beds. The choice is really up to you.
