What's the Best Pillow for Sitting Up in Bed?

Tuesday, 31 July 2018

There are few places we value more than our beds, as a good night's sleep helps keep us energetic, healthy and happy. When it comes down to it though, our beds provide us with more than just a place to sleep, as we're almost all guilty of spending a few extra minutes (or hours) in bed to read, make a phone call, or check up on the world with our tablet, smartphone or computer. This blissful time is often interrupted by discomfort or a sharp pain in the back, but with the right bed wedge pillow, that doesn't have to be.

Bed wedge pillows are the ultimate accessory for sitting up in bed, helping us start our day without having to get up just yet. Not all are created equal though, with some providing far more support than others. Luckily, we're here to help, as we've had our experts put together a list of Our Best Pillows for Sitting Up in Bed, providing support, comfort, and the ultimate tool for the perfect day in.
