If your 5'2" and under then this pillow would work. I'm an average 5'9" and it's way too short, it hits me above mid thigh. It seems to be a bit too firm also. I received this as a Christmas gift from my husband....it was difficult to tell him that the pillow just wont work, could he please return it. Most whole body pillows are around 130" long, I believe this one to be just under 100". So, to make a long story short, I would not recommend purchasing this pillow if you are of average height.
