Elevate your upper body for reading in comfort with this personal size memory-foam bed wedge. You can also use this comfortable wedge while watching television, or use it to elevate your legs and reduce back pain. The soft cover is machine washable....more
I bought this pre-surgery and HATED it. Couldn't get comfortable. But let me tell you, a week after I had my procedure done, this wedge helps me sleep comfortably and painlessly. So I've had a change of heart! If I prop it upright to read, I need a tiny pillow behind my neck for support. Otherwise, it absolutely does what it needs to.
I have slept on wedge-style pillows for the last several years to help control my acid reflux. When I saw "memory foam" I decided to replace my old and fairly worn out wedge pillow with this one... big mistake. This is NOT a traditional wedge pillow since it doesn't tapper correctly. This pillow could be used for sitting up in bed or something of that nature but I am simply amazed that anyone can SLEEP on it. A traditional wedge pillow tappers down so that you sleep on an incline but not vertical. I used this pillow for 7 days before I gave up and order my same old wedge pillow I've used for years. The one star is for the pillow case it comes with - one of the nicest I have seen for wedge pillows. Overall, please be aware that this is a sharp triangle pillow (thus awful to sleep on) - not a wedge with a nice tapper/ incline.
My only complaint is that the description of these wedges gave no indication of the depth/thickness of the wedges. My husband recently had surgery which now requires him to sleep elevated. Some of the wedges looked much thinner, so I went for the thickest one. This one is about 11" at it's thickest point. It is good quality, with a very nice washable cover. Would be great to sit up in bed reading or for patients who are bedridden. However, I think a slightly thinner one may have worked better for our purposes. It wpuld have been nice to have all the information available when purchasing, especially on items such as this that are unreturnable after opening.
If you are planning on any type of surgery that will require you to elevate your head post op, this pillow is a MUST have!
Back in February, I had a laser procedure on my face. I was required to sleep with my head elevated after my treatment. Being new to after care, I simply used throw pillows under my regular bed pillows. Well, this system proved to be a bad choice. I would wake up with neck and back pain. I started visiting my chiropractor a couple of times a week for my neck. Just to be up front, I have always had back problems and have seen a chiropractor for may years. I believe the throw pillow method just increase the number of visits I had to make.
I knew I was planning on having more elective surgery the following month and I refused to deal with my neck pain. After doing some research I educated myself on the benefits of a wedge pillow post op. I went to many sites and after reviewing prices and customer reviews, I decided to buy this wedge pillow from Overstock. I only had purchase one other item from Overstock and had a great experience. (Now two!)
Based on my research this was a great value and I thought the price was fair. The day the pillow came it was a little like Christmas for me. I was hoping the pillow would live up to the reviews. I ripped open the package and threw it on the bed for a test drive. Within seconds I knew it was perfect for my future recovery! I also like that it came with its own washable cover.
I am now seven days post op from having upper blepharoplasty, fat grafting to the face, and chin liposuction. I only list the procedures I had incase you are considering the same surgery. My comfort post op was amazing. I did use my own bed pillows as additional support depending on if I was sleeping or sitting up in bed. The wedge is the perfect foundation for any position.
This was my experience with this product and I hope this review aids you in your search!
Flip this wedge so it sits tall and it is a life-saver! There is no way to rest in bed without it and rigging pillows does not work. Smartest purchase I made in preparation for surgery, no question. It arrived in perfect condition exactly 22 hours after I purchased it.
Well priced wedge, bought it for surgery recovery, thank goodness because the other pillow I bought did not work out. This wedge was just the right shape and thickness. It actually quite comfortable as long as you put a pillow on top of it.
We love our wedge pillows and have told friends and family about them .. Myself I do not snore and get better rest now that I have been using them.... Thank you for carry this product we are very happy with them ...

Hello! The description says "High density 3-pound convoluted memory foam, over a conventional support foam" so does this mean that this wedge is made of two pieces of foam that are fused together? Or are the two pieces separate? I want to know if when I remove the cover for washing are the two pieces going to come apart?airmilt on Dec 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Does this come loose in a cardboard shipping box or does it come in a manufacturers box(with pictures, info, etc., nice enough as a gift)?crimsonclover79 on Dec 4, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
