My husband bought this for me since I am pregnant and wanted a maternity pillow. Going from the other reviews on the page, he thought it seemed like a good choice. But I was very disappointed in it. The product has velcro on a band between the two pillows, which you are supposed to adjust to help prop you upright. The velcro wouldn't stay in place, so the pillows weren't supporting me. (And the velcro instead rested on my sheets and caused snags in the fabric.) Hopefully my experience was one-off, but I was disappointed.
Gave as gift and recipient found the pillow to be far from adequate. It is not especially comfortable and is not as advertised. She says it is the same as having two regular( but not as good) pillows) to place wherever you want. Sorry- this is NOT a good maternity pilow!
I haven't been very pleased with this pillow so far. I am 21 weeks pregnant and have a lot of trouble sleeping at night because I usually sleep on my stomach. Now I am trying to train myself to sleep on my side and always find myself on my back when I wake up throughout the night. I thought this pillow would help to keep me on my side but it hasn't at all. There is so much room between the 2 pillows, that it doesn't keep me wedged between them. I still end up on my back all the time. Not to mention that the pillows are so fluffy that it makes it difficult to get out of bed, which I do several times a night for bathroom trips. Another thing I didn't like was that fact that I can't put a pillow case on it unless I custom make one to fit and the material quality isn't good so I worry it will fall apart. I stopped using the pillow because it just wasn't right for me. I plan on picking it up again a little later into my pregnancy to see if it works better for me then, but for now I am giving this pillow a thumbs down.
I am disappointed in this pillow. The design itself is good in theory, but the pillows are too soft and mush right up with any pressure. They are of a very thin, low thread count, scratchy material. There is no removeable cover and it would be tough to fashion somethin on my own due to the design. Photograph is deceiving.
I am 21wks along in my 1st pregnancy. I am a back or a stomach sleeper & when I saw this pillow, I had to try it! Im so glad I did! I am sleeping the best I ever have! The pillow prevents me from rolling all the way over on my back & cushions my belly if I roll over on my stomach. I toss & turn alot. The fabric is a bit cheap & there is no covers for it, but it will do just fine for the remainder of my pregnancy. Also there is no need for the velcro strips since they dont work once you lay on it. I just put duck tape over them & you would never know there was velcro there! After reading bad reviews of this product, I realized that it might be due to the mother to be's size. I am 5'3" & 130lbs currently. I believe this pillow works better for smaller sized moms. Other than that, I would definately recommend this pillow! I cant sleep w/out it!
The construction of the pillow set does help with back angle and resting tummy on the front, however, the pillow fabric is not comfortable and generates a lot of heat. Anyone living in a warm climate will not be comfortable and those going through summer pregnancy will also have a difficult time.
Product arrived in a reasonable time, as indicated upon purchase, and in good condition. Didn't get a chance to use it long enough to see how well the velcro stood up to numerous nights of changing sides while laying down. My wife is pretty sensitive in many aspects and unfortunately the pillow wasn't soft enough to"give" and squish. So, it ended up putting a bit too much pressure and resistance under her belly bump.
This was the BEST pillow for me! Yes, it does have the velcro in the middle - but I put a cloth diaper there and it was fine. It is better than having to flip a pillow back and forth when you are trying to sleep and not having to worry about taking the pillow with you when you flip! Perfect for traveling and you can place it in the dryer with damp towels to 'freshen' it up. I used this pillow for both of my pregnancy's and even in between! Love it!
The pillow arrived on time. It was exactly what I needed. I was looking for something to prevent me from waking up on my back and offer additional support. I'm also an individual who needs to move a lot during the night, so the traditional pregnancy pillows wouldn't do. The only little complaint I would have to say is that the pillows aren't very dense and are already flattening out a bit after 3 weeks of use. Other than that, it was just what I was looking for.
I truly LOVED this pillow when I first received it. It has great belly and back support. The problem is that it does not have a removable cover so it makes it harder to keep clean. Also, it is getting flat. I've only had it for a month! I hoped it would last at least thru the rest of my pregnancy (4 months) but I doubt it...
