Pregnancy pillow / Bolster pillow review
Sold by: Amazon
Price: Around £10
Good option for pregnancy, or just for someone who sleeps on their side or stomach. Great value!
Slightly unusual to offer a review of a full bolster pillow, but if like me, you sleep on your side or stomach, then this is a great, cheap-as-chips option for comfort. It’s not very well known but if you are a side sleeper, having a pillow between your knees is highly recommended by health professionals and actually remarkably comfortable. It stops your hips rotating and keeps your spine effortlessly straight and without pressure.
I can’t personally offer you my own opinion on this but for the ladies, my wife swears that a bolster is crucial from 6 months on to support her bump and lessen the discomfort in her hips.
If you’re pregnant and can afford to splash a little more cash though, you might want to look at the our review of the Dreamgenii pillow – gives support on both sides and lets the lady roll over without having to move the pillow each time during the night. Or the Kally pillow – which is much softer, cooler and more comfortable body pillow for people in general. It may just be worth the investment to get a few more winks of sleep.
That said, this Amazon pillow is the cheapest option we’ve found to deliver a comfortable night’s sleep for side sleepers or tummy sleepers – male or female.
