The last time I had a body pillow on my bed was college, but these days it feels like I may need one again. There’s a lot to be said about having a giant, squishy pillow that you can hug or punch or scream into, depending on your mood. Body pillows can help reinforce the gap between your mattress and your headboard so your actual pillows don’t fall. They can act as a barrier between you and your spouse. There are so many options! We’ve rounded up some of the best to keep on hand, no matter the situation.
FOR FULL-BODY SUPPORT
PharMeDoc Pregnancy Pillow, $40:
While this pillow was made especially for pregnant people, it can become your own cocoon no matter what. The full, C-shaped pillow curls around your body and is great to keep your back in alignment as well.
FOR THE ALLERGY-PRONE
Snuggle-Pedic Shredded Memory Foam Body Pillow
Like the shredded memory foam pillows before it, this body pillow is hypoallergenic and breathable. It’ll never go flat and provide you the support you need throughout the night.
FOR LOW-MAINTENANCE SLEEPERS
Utopia Bedding Soft Body Pillow
The outer shell of this option is made from 100% cotton, which makes it both super soft and super durable. It’s also machine-washable so you can bring it back to life after a couple weeks. The fiber filling also gives great support for your shoulders, hips, and back.
FOR THOSE WHO PREFER FIRM PILLOWS
Decroom Memory Fiber Full Body Pillow
If you’re looking for a memory foam option to match your sleeping pillow, this is the one for you. It’s made to adjust to the movements of your body. Both the pillow and cover are machine-washable.
FOR THOSE WHO NEED EXTRA SUPPORT
EnerPlex Never-Flat Body Pillow
With Never-Flat in the name, you can expect ongoing support from this pillow. The shredded memory foam is adjustable, it’s machine-washable, and it allows airflow to keep you cool.
