We put our new flat screen TV in the middle bedroom, which means that one or two viewers need to sit up in bed to watch. Finding some good backrests proved to be harder than we thought. Local stores had nothing. There is an item called a BedLounge available online but it costs $130-180.
This product for $26 with free shipping does the job. The twill cover is nicely made. Back support is good and solid. Fill material has the right density. Delivered to my porch free of charge. Excuse me while I go watch a movie. Thanks OnlineShopDealer!
After too many mornings waking up with a sore neck, from leaning against my headboard, I decided I needed to find something that would help. I've seen something like these in stores, but what I saw, and felt, were pillowy. Sort of light and flexable. Not good for what I needed.
I've had these on my onlineshopdealer wishlist for quite a while. I came back to onlineshopdealer to buy an overbed table. I saw these on my wishlist, so decided to order these as well.
These are NOT pillows. These are more firm. I mean, I was surprised at how firm they were. Not solid, but firm enough. I mean they really are perfect for sitting up. I still put a regular pillow on top of these, behind my head, but these are great. With the little armrests, you get a lot of 'comfort settings'. For the price I got these for, I am wicked happy. Price actually came down since too *rough*.
I love that onlineshopdealer lets us post reviews, and they seem to honestly allow both positive and negative reviews to be left. Kudo's to onlineshopdealer!! I do worry my positive reviews affect prices for others, and I have a feeling the prices for these may rise back up after this post. But, to me, these things are WELL worth it!!!
I love this product!
I work full time and my chair is uncomfortable, but when I get home I can set on the floor, the bed or the couch with this pillow and be completely comfortable for hours while doing schoolwork. I had a similar product years ago and I'm glad a purchased another one recently. If you spend a lot of time reading or using a laptop, this product may be for you.
Very nice bedrest
I feel like I am reviewing a different product than some of these other reviewers. This bedrest pillow is very nice. It is firm without being too hard and has just enough give to cushion my back comfortably. The pillow does have some weight to it but it is not heavy enough to be burdensome whatsoever and the fabric is certainly a good quality, (I have the celadon, the color is very nice), It is very comfortable for sitting up in bed to watch TV or read a book. When I want to recline a little more I have just to "skooch" down a little and my head is resting comfortably while I'm still inclined enough to see the television. Someone mentioned the arms get in the way of a bed tray, I do not know how that is even possible. If I'm using a bed tray I would have it over my lap, maybe as far up as my hips, there is no way the arms on this bedrest extend down that far, they are just not that long. I love this bedrest for it's quality, comfort and durability, and mostly because I am no longer leaning my head against a rock hard headboard whenever I'm sitting up in bed!
good value, well made, color was as described
I am very happy with this purchase, since I saved over $10 from buying at the local linen store, and not having to haul it home. It's not a light item, and must be made like that so it will stand up in its position. I'm very happy with the color, too. Its a cooling shade of green.
The seller used a very sturdy box, and shipped it quickly.
Exactly what I wanted
Needed a pillow just like this, looked on OnlineShopDealer and got it. Recovering from shoulder surgery and am not allowed to sleep flat, so this was critical to have when I traveled to visit family out of state.
Did not want to spend a lot of money for it and didn't have to in order to get exactly what I wanted and needed and with shipping faster than it would seem possible.
This little beauty would be terrific for a guest room, dorm room or even, heaven forbid, helping to sleep after having surgery
I was super surprised by the quality of this item. When I took it out of the packaging, initially I was afraid that I would have to return it because it felt like it would be too flimsy (not firm enough) and maybe too small, but it is SURPRISINGLY firm, in a GOOD way! I think anyone who purchases this item for reading in bed & general back support will be uber pleased! I posted a few pics as well.
Red = true to Color. Simply add a King sized Pillowcase !
Note: this Bed Pillow is available in several colors..
The decription reads " Brushed Twill," true, it does look like nothing can stain it. To prevent such a problem & to keep the Red hue perfect, I simply added a (stretchy material) King Size Pillowcase !It is heavy (about 6 lbs) & mine arrived very well protected/packaged, heavyweight paper held t in place... On the plastic bag surrounding it, it had Multiple wwarnings (about misuse/danger) on the bag,, i.e. "Do Not Use as a toy" .. Great to have the Warning printed on it,in *both Spanish & English. Good job.
Now, in response to those who are angry (what? Angry at an inatimate object?) because you do not know HOW to keep it from ever getting damaged? Stop & consider: It's a Pillow. Cover it with a Pillow Case (duh)! If your King Sized Pillow case does not match your bed duvets/comforter/blanket (Oh,fussy, fussy) or colors on your wall - put it in the closet & take it out to use when needed. * Notice there is a sewn-In Handle, on top of the pillow?
For the 1st time, I tried using it last night sitting in bed. Yes, a couple of actual pillows behind your head/neck completes the "Comfort Factor." OH yeah.. It made cruising on the Internet very comfortable.. If you sit up hard against it, you WILL get that lower back support (which some have complained about - the lack of, that is) ..
Now, it IS a hard/supportive pillow, if this is what you want.. & you want to:
* Watch TV sitting up
* Use your Laptop sitting in bed (with great support)
* Just be able to sit up in bed - when you are recovering from an injury/Surgery - & you are bed-bound..
* or, You simply enjoy reading (maybe a Kindle?)in bed...
Then This Pillow IS for you! (as it is quite perfect for me)..
Caution: On a Queen Sized bed, you can only fit 1 of these Bedrest Pillows, as the arms stick out and it IS a wide PillowRest. I am delighted with mine, order 1 so you can be thrilled also..
Great bed rest
My boyfriend and I each purchased this bedrest in celadon color about a month ago. I love it. I had to leave a comment however because I found that the pillows we purchased sound nothing like the reviews we read. They are not extremely heavy at all, even capable of being lifted with one finger. Nor are they very large and hard to manuever. My boyfriend actually wanted one for this reason because he is taller and was worried it may be too soft and thought the tougher and heavier it is, the better. He uses it in addition to a few other pillows because it isn't quite sturdy enough to hold his weight. I, however, find it perfect. The size and softness, not too soft and just sturdy enough where it provides support but still really comfortable. The only thing that I find odd is the celadon color (based on the picture provided it I expected it to be white) is actually almost green/gray. A hard color to describe. It worked perfectly for me though because it matched better with our bed set and room. I would definitely recommend this pillow. But don't expect it to be too heavy for tough from the other reviews.
This bed rest pillow is amazing. I sit up in bed frequently and study or read and this has fixed the issues that I have been having with the muscles in my back. I recommend this to anyone that does a lot of sitting up in bed, this adds the much needed comfort and support on your back. Great Product.
