I started using body pillows way back when I was having children and pregnant. I became addicted immediately. My old body pillow was like Linus' proverbial blanket: it needed replacing badly. I sleep on a Tempurpedic, so this seemed a logical choice. When I received the pillow it was folded into a size that astonished me. Once removed from the bag, it was "flat as a flitter" (as my grandma used to say) and I was a tiny bit concerned. However, it has had time to settle in, grown as big as a whale and I'm IN LOVE.
