Our contoured body pillow is specially designed to give you the most snug and cozy embrace. This pillow is great for sleeping or sitting and will ensure you are comfortable and secure. This cushion has hour-glass shaped contouring that is engineered to distribute equal support for your back and stomach. The U-Shaped design allows you to easily flip the pillow around and use another pillow for your head. Great for pregnancy, surgery recovery and general comfort. The moderate amount of filling and gently sloped sides really allows for easy wedging and manouvering without having to constantly readjust the pillow position. The insert itself is filled with 100% new and hypoallergenic polyester fiber fill in a polypropylene shell. This body pillow comes with a 100% cotton, zippered cover for easy removal and washing. Both the insert and cover are machine washable. When washing the insert, be sure to put it on a gentle rinse cycle with lukewarm water and then either air dry or put the dryer on gentle tumble dry with low heat. Be sure all the soap has been washed out before drying.
