Support cushions/pillows

Postby spirery » Thu May 26, 2011 9:53 pm

Hi all, I have been advised by my GP to get a support cushion/pillow for when I am in bed to support my hips and shoulders. There are so many about so I dont know which is best.
Do any of you use them, if so, which ones and why do you like it.
If possible please can you give a link for me.

Wow, just searched for that and it looks amazing!! Might be my first purchase after the honeymoon. Looks so snug! What colour have you got?
Cat's are like chocolates, it's hard to just have one!

I recently treated myself to a memory foam pillow and I think it has helped the neck pain.

Hi. My OH and myself have both got a 'v' pillow, wouldn't be without them! Just wanted to say that I get pillow cases in all different colours at Dunelm as well as the pillows, all very reasonably priced. Just thought it might help some of you. Gentle :hugs: to all. Cherry :blowkiss:

congrats on your recent wedding :D
ive got two of these pillows,

mine is red and OHs is blue - we also have one spare pillowcase between us which is pink
i have fibro & cfs - he has cfs and other probs - we manage just about

also have body pillows as mentioned from argos - got cheap pillowcasses online in navy (hides the dirt) and light blue for his
the V support pillow - pillowcases are yellow, green and cream for spares

for times overheating and trying to cool down - i use a chillow slipped into pillowcase of normal pillow

i also use a memory foam pillow too

this sounds like a lot of cushions and pillows but im lucky have 3 bedrooms in house - mine, his and ours

also have small boudoir type pillows in living room - great for cuddling and resting elbows on - also use when in car for padding from seat belt across body as well as car seat belt pads

HI, new from Australia an also looking for the support cushion but it should be in some king of shape which help my backbone. I am not getting it on bedding websites. Where to get?
I shop online Rapee Cushions in Australia for comfort.

I have the V pillow, which I don't find particularly useful. However, I spotted a beauty on ebay - U support pillow. I may treat myself.

Much Love

I have memory foam pillows which offer great support for my neck. I also have the long body pillow which offers some support for my knees.

Hugs
Claire
