What is it?
If you suffer from back pain, you're in good company. According to the Health Policy Institute, about eight percent of adults in the United States have the same affliction — and it's the leading reason people miss work. If you and your spine are looking for a little relief, this Cushy Form Half Moon Bolster Pillow might deliver what you need, and right now you can get it on sale for just $14.
Why is it a good deal?
The regular $18 price for this pillow is already a bargain and while this is not the lowest the price has dipped this year, it does tend to go up in the winter.
Why do I need this?
Back pain can get in the way of just about everything you do — walking, bending, even sitting. It can certainly make sleeping difficult. However, with just the right positioning, you might be able to take some of the stress off your back. For some people, having the knees bent and lifted just a little bit can ease some of the pressure on the back from lying completely prone. And, thanks to its unique design, that's just what the Cushy Form does. It looks kind of like a cylinder sliced down the middle to make it half-moon. With the flat side down, it stays in place and can help you remain in a comfortable position while you slumber ... pain-free.
For firmness, it's made with memory foam that's pliable but also keeps its shape. The soft and plush cover is made with breathable bamboo, which is removable and machine-washable. The dome on this pillow is 4.5 inches high and 8 inches wide for a comfortable fit, but if you need a bit more lift, you can get a version with a 5.1-inch dome. What's that? Your upper vertebrae need a little love? Get yourself Cushy Form's neck roll.
What reviewers say
This pillow has helped an army of fans sleep blissfully through the night — it's received more than 8,000 rave reviews.
"After an MRI where they used a triangle pad under my knees 'to relieve some pressure on my spine', I was like WHERE CAN I FIND ONE OF THESE?" wrote a relieved shopper. "I found this item and it's been my favorite bedtime companion ever since. It works well under my knees — not too high, not too low — and it also doubles nicely into a knee pillow when I dare to move to sleep on my side."
"The doctor told me that I had lost the curve in my lower back and I have chronic back pain," shared another rave reviewer. "I bought this pillow and lay with it under my back while watching TV in bed. It is helping me to walk straight up instead of leaning over."
"This half-round has become a lifesaver for my severe back pain," gushed another happy slumberer. "I place it under my knees when I sleep and it really helps for back pain. I use it with a wedge pillow that I bought after shoulder surgery that is now doing double duty for shoulder and back surgery. The half-round pillow relieves the stress so I have no pain when I wake up in the morning."
"My neck pains are gone," reported this five-star fan. "It has worked out great for me on the lower back as well. Makes for a great travel pillow, since it's not that big yet provides great comfort. Not ideal for side sleepers who like to extend their arms under the pillow, but still works well otherwise."
