Very comfy, especially for back issues. My cats have already destroyed it but great if you don't have cats.

Pillow is exactly what I expected. I needed it for someone who is sick and needed a reading pillow in bed and this pillow provides the support he needed. Good value and good product.

Home Brilliant Striped Velvet Throw Pillow Covers 2 Pack
Currently unavailable

I love them the color is not the same as the rest of the bedding but matches the body pillow and they give the finished look to my bed.

Arrived in a rectangular box shrinked wrapped. I didn't think it would expand right because it was pretty flat when I opened it. Surprisingly, it indeed expanded to it's full size after 48 hours as the product page described. I have not noticed any strong odors, so that is nice. Comfortable padding for my back when I watch TV on my bed.…

…It is supportive and soft; it isn't tall enough to support your head, but to be honest, if you're sitting up in bed you aren't wanting to rest your head anyway, right?... They even share it; one sitting in the middle as intended and the other laying on the ground with the arm rest as a pillow. :) Overall great pillow!…

Best rest out there

Excellent product! After I took it out of the packaging it took about 24 hours for the foam to expand. Now it's amazingly comfortable! I needed it as I was recovering from surgery and it kept me so happy while I was laying in bed! Highly recommend this product !

... rest & this has literally been one of the best purchases I've made to make bed rest more comfortable

I am pregnant with twins & on bed rest & this has literally been one of the best purchases I've made to make bed rest more comfortable.…

I am 6'2 220 lbs would this be a suitable size or is it meant for smaller people?

In order for your head to rest comfortably, you'd want something taller. I chose the Ziraki, since it was taller than other equivalent products. I could not find any taller ones, though. If you are not concerned with resting your head against the product, you would not have any problem.

LOVE

My husband recently had heart surgery and was on bed rest so I got him this to make him more comfy and he LOVED it!…

Five Stars

Works perfectly on bed as a back rest.

I can recommend this for resting your back and neck while reading in the comfort of your bed.

Great arm rest

Holds it shape. Comfy

Good back rest pillow

The pillow provides a comfortable backrest for sitting in bed grading papers and working on the laptop. I don't understand the complaints about it not fluffing and taking shape after unpacking. It's filled with shredded foam, of course you have to pull it apart, shake it, and fluff it after it's been condensed to the size of a paper towel roll for shipping.

…She loves the cushion, it's soft and helps her rest at a semi upright position.

I love this! I have waited for years to get one, wanting to find an affordable backrest that was attractive as well. This is so very comfortable. I would highly recommend this product!

Comfortable back rest for reading in bes.

Pillow is very comfortable, just as the ad states. It is heavier than I thought it would be but, never the less, it works well and I am glad to have it.

Great for reading in bed or using my laptop

…I had been using multiple pillows but this provides great back support as will as the arm rests are great support while reading, makes holding books much easier

How well does it work

I don't use this pillow as much as I probably should but it is a nice alternative to trying to rest my back on the wall behind my bed! The handle on the top is excellent for moving it around the room. I will be using it more and spoiling myself more.

I really enjoy this back rest

If you love reading, then you know how frustrating it can be to struggle to find a comfortable reading position. This is especially true when laying in bed, where reading is often marked with regular shifting of positions to alleviate numb body parts. What we pay little attention to is our own body discomforts in order to stay entranced with the literature in front of us.
Relaxing in bed with a good book can be the perfect way to wind down in the evening or ease into a lazy weekend. But while a comfortable mattress, soft sheets, and fluffy pillows make for a restful night’s sleep, they might not actually be the ideal setup for supporting healthy posture while sitting upright. That’s where reading pillows come in. Not only do they prevent slouching, they can turn your bed, sofa, or even the floor into a cozy reading nook.
