I have fibro so I was looking for a body pillows for nights that are bad. I am in the middle of redecorating my bedroom; so this is not on the bed yet but I do have it in guest bedroom till mine is done. I do need to find a cover for it. I have tried it out and it works great for me. I am 5'2 and it's perfect to fit my body. I was in a rush when I found this so I didn't even look to see if they have a case for it. I need to do that before I use it full time.
Bought for my teenage daughter as her old one died after many years. She likes this one but says it can get hot at night because she hugs it or sleeps with it propped up next to her. So far it's held its shape well and hasn't "settled" in spots like her old body pillow. I prefer alternative over down also.
I highly recommend this pillow with the caution that buy it if you like a marshmallow feel. I do, but sometimes I wish it was less cushy. I bought a cute pillowcase for it, a must-have, and I have to say I enjoy the pillow and find it useful. It is extremely light.
I was shopping for a body pillow at the recommendation of my chiropractor to maintain space between my knees and my arms during sleep. I failed to notice the word "soft" in the description. The repetition of the word "support" made me think this pillow was what I need. I was wrong. The polyester fill has amazing puffiness, but it squished down to a very thin surface and provided hardly any support to my knee and arm when on my side. I will have to return it. I spent over an hour on the Overstock website looking for another body pillow that was firm and failed to find anything. Disappointing!
