Best Pillows for Reading in Bed
Pillows for Reading in Bed:
Bed Rest Pillows
One option for a pillow that enables you to read comfortably in bed is one that has a back rest and arms. What used to be popular in dorm rooms for students who liked sitting on the floor is now a popular choice for adults who enjoy reading in bed. These pillows are constructed of firm filling to give your back plenty of support. The arms are low and provide a prop for your elbows so that you can hold a book or a magazine. Bed rest pillows come in lots of different colors and fabrics, so you can choose one that matches your bedroom set.
Bed Lounge Pillows
A bed lounge pillow has the same shape as a bed rest pillow, but bed lounge pillows can be adjusted to meet your reading-in-bed comfort needs. A bed lounge pillow has arms, a supportive back and a neck pillow that can be adjusted to accommodate your different positions.
Memory Foam Pillows
Memory foam pillows are better for reading in bed than pillows stuffed with down, feathers, cotton or other material. Memory foam pillows are able to form to your body, providing support where you need it. Another consideration is a memory foam wedge pillow. The shape of these wedge bed pillows props you up in bed for easy reading.
This type of specialty pillow consists of two layers. The top layer feels like a normal bed pillow, but the bottom layer is stiffer so it can add support to the spine and lower back as you sit up to read in bed.
