I love body pillows. But I struggle finding one that is long enough to throw an arm and a leg over. I think I’m just going to have to makeone like this , since there’s no way in hell I am going to pay $100 for body pillow. And this pillow probably isn’t long enough/full of enough cushion.

u/HumanPrimate · 45 pointsr/BuyItForLife

The Review Meta extension says that product has a lot of fake reviews. I see a lot of upvotes, can anyone else vouch for either this pillow or the sweethome being trustworthy? I don't want to accuse OP of being a shill, but I've been getting more and more wary of this kind of thing.

u/H-Ryougi · 38 pointsr/DotA2

You can make custom covers here [WARNING: ANIME TIDDIES], there are high-res covers in sites like and you can buy the pillow from amazon jp by using a proxy service. A&J is the pillow brand that usually gets recommended.抱き枕本体-Jオリジナル-DHR6000-ハイクラス-160cm×50cm/dp/B00CFG0B3I/

Also, pick 2 Way Tricot. Peach skin is awful.

u/attackoftheack · 35 pointsr/flexibility

Yes, anything can have a dramatic impact on an individual.

From a total population standpoint is it normally a primary concern? No, most people do not even notice any issues that develop but then again, most people are not pushing their bodies or asking them to be high performance machines.

You are doing the right things by strengthening your muscular imbalances that have developed. Imbalance is one of the leading causes of injury behind only previous injury and severity of previous injury. My first recommendation would have been to get an assessment and to strengthen the weak areas. Since you have already tackled those issues, now you are also at the point of prevention.

What can you do and what's important?

What is important is the alignment of your hips and spine as you sleep. Prop your body up into a position where your hips and spine are aligned. I'll give some links on pillows that can help accomplish this.

Article on sleeping posture by Dr Quinn Hennoch DPT:

LifeHacker sleep posture article:

Pregnancy Pillow :

Knee Pillow:

Side sleeper pillow:

Another common pillow position for back sleepers is a pillow, roll, or towel under the hamstrings.

If you have short hip flexors that put you in an anterior pelvic tilt (APT) this will especially work to take the pressure, from the weight and leverage of your legs, off of your low back.

u/im_twelve_ · 21 pointsr/wheredidthesodago

It's a ridiculously comfortable pregnancy pillow. Keeps my back aligned nicely or can support my belly once it starts getting bigger. Plus I can use it as a nursing pillow after baby's born!

u/LadyTechnocracy · 16 pointsr/pics

My OCD (along with radically different sleep patterns) keeps me from sharing a bed with my fiancé, but he loves cuddling, so as an anniversary gift, I decided to make a body pillow version of myself for him to keep in his bed!

I started by commissioning a very large anime-esque portrait of myself by starexorcist and then had the image printed on a pillow case through ArtsCow. Shipping took forever, but the quality is great! The pillow itself came via Amazon.

I suppose I should say the technical term for this pillow is "dakimakura"- I get a kick out of seeing dakimakuras with anime characters on them at conventions and my fiancé loves anime too, so I figured this would be a fun (and funny) gift to give.

What do you think?

u/wampum · 16 pointsr/funny

Look cool while napping with your very own Ostrich Pillow.

u/sri745 · 12 pointsr/DadReflexes

They just look like pregnancy body pillows...

Source: wife had it at one point

Edit: Guys trust me, you don't want one. I slept on the couch because not enough room for pillow + two people in a queen sized bed. Spent the money and got one of those adjustable's worth every effing penny.

u/Sathrah · 11 pointsr/mazda3

I have a 2014 without powered seats as well, and I had the exact same problem as you after about a year of ownership. Developed some pretty intense lower back pain that wouldn't go away (I have a long commute every day).

I bought this (Amazon - Lumbar Support Pillow). Solved my problem completely. Pain went away and didn't come back.

Best of luck!

u/hersheykiss7761 · 10 pointsr/BabyBumps

I would go with a pregnancy pillow!

u/wheelchaircowboy · 9 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Mediflow Original Waterbase Pillow

It's like sleeping on a cloud, and the firmness can be adjusted by filling in less/more water. The pillow is much cheaper in Europe though, I bought a twin pack for around $35, so it might be a good idea to shop around stop

u/JoshuaSonOfNun · 9 pointsr/Animemes

Just a cover.

For the Pillow I bought this one which comes recommended at /r/Dakimakuras

u/Ameradian · 8 pointsr/funny

I realize that it's really expensive for a pillow, but I WISH I had bought one of these for my pregnancy. I had a straight body pillow, plus numerous other pillows, but they only sort of helped. I tried out my friend's Snoogle one time, and was instantly jealous. If you can cough up the cash for it, DO IT. You won't regret it.

u/willoweep · 8 pointsr/thebachelor

I was gifted this one!:

It was a life saver! But I like to be cuddled up.. friends I know who really enjoy their space and don’t like to feel “constricted” didn’t seem to enjoy it as much.

u/colliwag · 8 pointsr/BabyBumps

My hubs is getting me a Snoogle and I CANNOT WAIT.

u/darute · 8 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I have a latex pillow that is wonderful. It's a Z by Malouf. I got it for $50 so I'm sure you can find something cheaper than amazon if you shop around. In the end, just buy what is most comfortable for you.

u/PixelDemise · 8 pointsr/grandorder

From what I have learned, sites that sell proper Dakis and not bootlegs(Which are drastically lower in quality), are very limited outside of Japan. CuddlyOctopus WaifuCafe and Dakimakuri are the only sites that are reliable in their quality, while also being easy to purchase from for non-asian customers. Other sites are either bootlegs, or have bootlegs and you can't really tell which is which without buying them.

I have heard some chinese circles sell proper Dakis while also selling bootlegs, so I can't tell you which circles, and which ones are and aren't bootlegs. If one of those three sites don't have any, you will not have much luck finding a non-bootleg Daki elsewhere.

This pillow seems to be the most highly rated among Daki collectors, and while there may be others that are cheaper, this one will stay firm and won't get dents for a very long time.

u/greenyellowbird · 8 pointsr/starterpacks

I have one of these and with ear plugs, and an eye mask....I can almost sleep if I wasn't sitting upright at an 85 degree angle.

u/WiscMlle · 7 pointsr/BabyBumps

:-) I just bought a "Snoogle" off of Amazon the other day, and it is amazing so far.. It is basically a giant C-shaped body pillow, but it is worth its price tag for good sleep!

u/itsTHATgirl · 7 pointsr/BabyBumps

A pregnancy pillow would be a splendid gift. Also you could spring for a mani-pedi or a Mamma Mio gift set (here or here)(I am in love with their tummy butter and their boob lotion, it really really helps.).

u/perennialoptimist · 7 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have the snoogle!

It's kind of the same thing. I LOVE it. I must admit, I tried sleeping with it in my first trimester and didn't like it. But once I was well into my second I thought it was amazing. Still sleeping with it now, and sleeping well even 5 days past my due date. I must say though... it's HUGE. It's really like having a third person on our bed. Though my husband doesn't seem to mind propping his leg on it, too.

u/ilovegingermen · 7 pointsr/DoesAnybodyElse

Have you heard of these? I'm not prego but I want one so bad.

u/backdoor_nobaby · 7 pointsr/TooAfraidToAsk

You need to check out the pregnancy pillows, they are like a giant 5' horseshoe. Your sleep comfort is your business, don't be ashamed of what makes you feel good.

u/[deleted] · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife
u/Aspel · 7 pointsr/wowthissubexists

Eh.... Not too expensive for a body pillow itself. Plus they're really good for actually sleeping with if you need something between your legs for support and find it easier to hug something when you sleep (whether crippling loneliness or back support or whatever).

It also looks like they're actually slips/covers, which I only really just noticed, and I bet most of the money comes from the print pattern. They don't seem to like "bootlegs" though, so I can only guess that they don't approve of making your own. Dunno why, since like /u/PotatoMurderer says, they're not exactly official.

Also, I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and assume most of those Redditors are using their own money and are moderately well off, not using their grandparents' money. Probably more well off than the actual Japanese the things are made for, considering Japan's economy is suffering from people not fuckin'.

u/mil1o · 7 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Small PSA:

A&J finally release 'new' DHR6000

The Amazon product page also has been updated with more picture and badly translated product description in English.

I will probably buy one next month in case they change the shell fabric again (RIP combination development)

u/fuckchalzone · 7 pointsr/Wetshaving

I bought this one about a year ago:

It is really nice. Came recommended by Wirecutter. The filing is shredded memory foam. It is pretty firm though. Which I like and gives good support, but if you are used to really soft pillows it might seem weird.

It does tend to get compressed though, so you need to fluff it fairly often.

One great thing about it is that the whole pillow is machine washable.

u/woodbuck · 7 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow

I used to always sleep with two regular pillows, but just one of these has been perfect every night. Stays pretty cool and is extremely comfortable. Its softer than straight memory foam but still has a lot of support.

I found it on Wirecutter so see their review for more in depth:

u/obliquely_run · 6 pointsr/BabyBumps

You need a snoogle.

u/Kilo_Juliett · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I have a latex pillow that I’ve had for, I don’t know, 6 years maybe and it’s held up perfectly fine.

Z 100% Natural Talalay Latex Zoned Pillow - Queen - High Loft, Plush

They make 4 different styles. High loft plush, high loft firm, low loft plush, and low loft firm.

For a side sleeper you want a high loft.

They also make them in king sizes.

u/andapacketofcrisps · 6 pointsr/fatpeoplehate

Her justification for her size is that she makes a better body pillow. What kind of ambition is that? It's like she's auditioning to be the female version of this.

u/lathe_of_heaven · 6 pointsr/INEEEEDIT
u/KarmaPoIice · 6 pointsr/Posture

I’m here to save the day! I bought one of these a year ago and now I honestly can’t imagine sleeping without it. Absolute game changer for my sleep

u/megzxx · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

I had pretty bad hip/buttocks/leg pain then I got a lovely snoogle around 13 weeks and it's been better since.

u/SilentStill · 5 pointsr/AskReddit

Indeed. My wife found the Snoogle to be well worth it as well for sleeping. It is a bit funny to recall the 'fort' of pillows that was amassed on her side of the bed as we got closer to term...:)

u/NBPTS · 5 pointsr/InfertilityBabies

I agree with grabbing something to eat. I'll also add getting this pillow. I'm carrying twins and this has been my best friend since about 11 weeks. I took a trip once without it and missed it so much! My hips were pissed off all day.

u/AdeptPixelants · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

Depending on how much you move at night (I like to change sides several times) This is the one I love!

u/lu1ipuli · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

I am almost 27 weeks and all I have needed so far is a pillow to help support my belly - this one is what I've been using since about 16 weeks and it is awesome. I actually have one of the large u-shaped pillows - this one ...not a Snoogle, since I was told by friends who tried one during their pregnancies that it sucked because you would have to reposition the whole dang thing every time you wanted to switch sides. I actually haven't used it yet because we have a queen bed and it will seriously take up SO much of the bed. I'm perfectly comfortable with my belly pillow so far.

u/DeyCallMeTater · 5 pointsr/AskWomen

Oh I got this. lol. I have traveled pretty extensively both for work and fun so here's what I bring for work:


Luggage: 1 carry on hardside + 1 backpack as the "personal item" instead of a purse.


  • side notes on luggage and what I use: I am a big fan of the samsonite 4 wheel carbonites because they're pretty sturdy and I always choose the one with built in locks. My preferred luggage is always going to have a built in lock, 4 wheels and be a hardside. But hardside isn't for everyone...some prefer soft but I like the expandable hardsides.

    If you have the money, I'd invest in Tumi...seriously...the best. A family member who used to have to travel every other week for work bought a Tumi and it has been going strong for 15+ yrs. No joke. My samsonite though has held up very well for well over several dozen trips so it's totally up to you.

    My backpack of choice is a lesportsac. It's got 3 external pockets and a drawstring and flap over that buckles. It has 3 internal mesh pockets and a zippered pocket inside. I like to shove my purse and stuff in this backpack.

    For business, I try to have a nice sized clutch that will fit phone, wallet and obvs enough room for business cards. I like an envelope style clutch because they can fit a lot of stuff but compress down very nicely at the bottom of my backpack. I also have a very padded laptop case that I store in my backpack. If you want to get a backpack that is a laptop backpack, that is fine too! And some people even prefer it but I personally don't because I use my backpack for fun too. They make backpacks with removable laptop sleeves, so you could also look into that.

    This one is an extra but I also have a makeup train case because I refuse to go anywhere without my arsenal. That gets tucked securely between all my clothes in my hardside but of course, if you don't wear much makeup this is totally optional and you can just get away with a cosmetics bag in your backpack.


  • Packing wise? I roll my suits and shirts and make sure to stuff socks/hose into the shoulders so when I roll, I'm not messing up the pads. I always make sure to bring at least 2 dust bags to throw my shoes into. I bring 1 pair of black heels because black is timeless and sexy and on the plane, I will wear a pair of practical walking flats also in black or nude. I put my hose/socks into my heels and I pack those first. Then I start placing my rolled clothes around the heels (make sure the heels are in the dust dirt on clothes please!) Packing cubes are fantastic and if you can afford to get some, I'd look into it. Stick to neutrals that you can re-use if necessary with no one being the wiser (ie: white camisoles, black slacks, jeans) that way you don't have to bring a shit ton and you can just mix and match. I like to have a big blanket scarf because it can double as a blanket on the plane and is super chic for fall/winter. Anywho, rolling is your best friend as well as the Downy Wrinkle Releaser. The moment you get into your hotel, hang up the items you know need to be perfect looking like the suit and your work dresses and spray the de wrinkle spray on the ASAP.


  • Tips for US TSA: I like to have my liquids in the baggie in my backpack so that it's a quick removal and I'm not rifling through my luggage to pull them out. I also wear tight fitting clothes like yoga pants and a form fitting long sleeve shirt because the TSA agents can pretty much just look at you and know that there's nothing on you and I found they don't get all up in your business as much. Also, if you're wearing a sweater/jacket/scarf make sure those come off and go in the bin. I make sure that unless I absolutely have to wear something else that the shoes I wear are really easy to remove like flats. Remember to remove your laptop from the sleeve and have it go into its own bin! It's not enough to just take the laptop bag out. You gotta take that bad boy out of the sleeve so it's visible and in its own bin.


  • Extras: Invest in a really really good travel pillow immediately. Seriously. The ones they give you on the plane are shit. And remember what I just said about blanket scarf? Yea...the blankets they give you on the plane suck too. My favorite travel pillow is the TravelRest. It's stupid looking but very compact (it's inflatable) and comfortable AF. Also, don't waste space on over the head earphones unless you are a major audiophile. A good pair of tiny apple buds are more than enough for your music/movie needs.


    If you are flying nonstop, I see no issue in checking your carry on bag if you are inclined but just make sure to factor in like 30+ min for pickup because it can take some time to get your luggage depending on what airport you're at and the size of your flight. If I know I need to be somewhere ASAP, I just stow everything in the overhead bin.


    I think that's everything but who knows...I'm probably missing something lol. And obviously this is just what I would do. You don't have to listen to this at all. lolol
u/ShippoLover · 5 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Well the best is obviously the DHR6000, if you don't care about price. You can buy it conveniently off of Amazon US for a bit of a premium (although you need to be cognizant of fakes, so be careful who you pick from) or inconveniently, but cheaper and safer, through Amazon JP using a forwarder like BigInJapan.

u/baristacat · 4 pointsr/DoesAnybodyElse

the only pillow you will ever need

It's marketed toward pregnant women but you need not be one.

u/GizMo_SANHEDRON · 4 pointsr/predaddit

Two pieces of advice that I hope are helpful for you.

First, get a Snoogle... This will help her stay comfortable, and will give her something to wrap around so that she doesn't wake you so much during the night. It's been a life saver for the wife and I, and she'll get more uncomfortable as things progress.

Next, something that's worked for me, when the wife has been passing out early (which has been pretty consistent the entire time she's been pregnant, since she's a bit anemic), is to go lay down with her at 7:30, then when she starts to doze, go find something else to do for a few hours. When you come into the room later on, since hopefully the Snoogle will be keeping her comfy, you can slip into bed without waking her.

The Snoogle will take up a decent amount of space, so unless you have a King bed, you'll be relegated to a smaller portion of the mattress, but hopefully she'll stay sleeping, and you'll be able to get to bed at a more normal time, and sleep through the night.

Hopefully this is helpful, best of luck with everything!

u/aimeenew · 4 pointsr/CautiousBB

My husband just bought me a Snoogle as we laid down to bed! I am sooooo excited! I should have it Saturday. I'm a belly sleeper and have had a lot of issues falling asleep so this will be amazing!!! I love him soooo much!

u/LRose1825 · 4 pointsr/JulyBumpers2017

Snoogle!!! However if I had it to do over again I would have gotten one of the ones with both sides.

u/make-me-waffles · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

It's never too early to invest in a Snoogle!

I also started with a chiropractor around maybe 18 weeks and am finding it to be extremely beneficial.

Best of luck to you!! And congratulations!! :)

u/cheeseburger_humper · 4 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I bet that's an amazing pillow.

I use a waterbase pillow to adjust it to my desired thickness. :)

u/ObligatoryJesus · 4 pointsr/funny

the holes on top are intended to be inline with your ears so that you can put your hands in them. The other hole is for you mouth and nose so you don't get too hot and so there is less moisture buildup.

Take a look at the pics on amazon.

u/SteveWBT · 4 pointsr/travel

This may draw some attention, but you won't be aware of it. The reviews and questions are helpful.

u/ChadwickGates · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I recently got this one. The marketing for it says it's good for side and stomach sleepers. I've only had it for a week but it's been fantastic. As an added bonus, it seems to have helped with my mild sleep apnea, too. I have no hard evidence for this, it's only anecdotal, but I seem to be sleeping a lot more soundly and breathing better at night. I have no idea how long the pillow will last so I don't think I can say it's BIFL right now. We'll see how it holds up.

u/Kozinskey · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

My hips have been killing me since second tri and the only thing that helps is a pillow between my legs. I also hate my Snoogle and think it's too warm, so I caved and bought this cooling body pillow with this satin case and actually stay cool enough to be comfortable with it. I especially like having a place to rest my arm that's not on the belly. Sometimes I also put a bolster pillow behind my low back to provide some counterpressure and that helps too.

All in all, I think pregnancy pillows are a racket. I hope you find a good solution. =\

u/BigBadJohn13 · 4 pointsr/loseit

They are! My wife is obsessed with hers!

u/CuteLittleParasite · 3 pointsr/predaddit

Generally if you don't want to use the name around others, the easiest way to avoid slipping up is to not use it much when alone either. I hope the dog is okay with sharing it's lodging for the time being though!!

If your wife doesn't have a Snoogle yet, it might be a way to get back on her good side!

u/superbozo · 3 pointsr/news

Hey. Chronic back pain/herniated disc sufferer here. I've had this problem for about 8 years now. I've been to multiple experts on the subject. Every single one of them suggest that laying on your stomach while you sleep actually worsens your back issues. They make it seem like it is the single worst thing you could do if you have back pain. The best thing you can do is sleep with a pillow inbetween your legs. I actually bought something called a snoogle, and it helped me out immensely.



The only "downside" would be that it's the size of a person. So storing it and washing it can be annoying.

u/Sasquatchtration · 3 pointsr/reallifedoodles

Take a look at the Snoogle - it's pretty damn comfy and around $60. Also if you use it every day for a year or more then $100 is actually pretty cheap especially if it improves your sleep every night.

u/ThinkingAboutBaby · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I love my Leachco Snoogle. I saw it suggested here earlier in my pregnancy and it’s really gotten me through some bad SPD, SI pain, and even eased my heartburn. Would absolutely recommend to any pregnant person!

I would keep in mind, though, that they are big and awkward and some people think they are a waste because you have to find a place to keep it after you’re pregnant. It’s kind of a physically large item to give as a gift, so I hope you’ve gotten some hints she wants one!

u/peacewithcylons · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

For the discomfort, I found a combination of two pillows works swimmingly for me: the Snoogle, and a wedge pillow for under my belly. I just had the Snoogle for a while, but once my belly really started to grow I needed some additional support there. It's crazy how much my tiny wedge pillow helps.

u/razorbladecherry · 3 pointsr/tifu

Thanks! I'm 6 months along now, so sleeping is getting harder. I start sleep on my side, but sometimes wake up on my back. I have one of these ( ) and i use it to prop my legs apart to support my hips, behind me for my back, and under my belly to hold it up. Getting settled in to bed is like assembling a puzzle. Lol

u/disasterific · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I got this in the mail yesterday

I slept like a baby. I really didn't want to get out of bed this morning due to being comfortable. The bladder ruined the moment.

Edit: My everything hurt and I've always wanted something like this even before I got pregnant. The back support makes all the difference.

u/cheesy18 · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This but I totally need it :)

u/lexm · 3 pointsr/predaddit

You can always buy her this pillow. It does feel like you have a medieval fortress in the bed (even in a king size one) but it helps my wife quite a bit.

We're at the beginning of the 3rd trimester and she's having issues being comfortable even with the pillow though.

u/AntleredGypsy · 3 pointsr/AugustBumpers2017

I'm a side sleeper usually, but my hips have been so sore and I've noticed that I wake up on my back a lot more. I told my husband that we're buying a pregnancy pillow this week just to help my hips. [This](Leachco Ba is the one I have picked out. I don't have to worry about anyone being in bed with me though since my husband works overnights and the dog has been banished.

u/0ywiththepoodles · 3 pointsr/March2018Bumpers

I haven't used it overnight yet (It was just delivered like 2 hrs ago) but I got the Leachco Back 'N Belly contoured body pillow and it's AMAZING. So comfy. It does take up just slightly less than 1/2 of our king size bed but hubby said he still has plenty of room. I feel like I'm in a little cocoon!

u/CrzyCatLady · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I've been having a tough time, too! My doctor, who teaches for the University of Wisconsin medical school (so not just any quack ;) ) said that sleeping on your sides is not good for you and that the whole back thing is exaggerated (and my Interwebs research has confirmed this).

He suggested putting a pillow under one butt cheek to elevate one side of my body and take the pressure off of the artery that runs under the uterus. I still wasn't comfy with this, so I either pile up pillows to make myself elevated like I'm sleeping in a recliner, or I waddle downstairs and sleep in the recliner. I use this pillow to make my bed into my own little preggo throne.

u/suckinonmytitties · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

yeah all my other current pillows are from when I was a kid and they used to be awesome but they lost all their fluffiness and are now like flat pancakes.

this pillow is the one that I just got gifted to me, and it's slightly firm but definitely malleable. I didn't want to get out of bed this morning because of it.

u/goon540 · 3 pointsr/pics

"Iso-Cool pillow responds to a body's changing temperature by warming or cooling" ... Sounds way too good to be true.

u/umichscoots · 3 pointsr/ForeverAlone

This website charges a 20% markup from the sites it sources its products from. In this case, it's about $100 on Amazon...

Which is still a ton for a pillow.

u/KvetchBetch · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

OK, this post is going to look like a series of ads but I promise that neither me nor anyone I know works for these companies; these are just products I love and wouldn't fly without.

Carry-on items: generally you're allowed one carry-on bag and one "personal item" (generally a non-luggage bag) so I always travel with a laptop backpack as my main carry-on and a big, soft, zippered tote as my personal item. I used to have this travel bag with a zillion pockets but it got to be such a pain trying to remember which pocket had which item it got stupid. Now with a big tote, I can just drag it out from under the seat, open it wide, and pull out one of the...

Packing cubes: Godsend. I buy them from ebags in various sizes, using the big ones for clothing in the pack, and the little ones in my tote. I use different colored ones in the tote for different things. Green for snacks, red for electronics, and blue for comfort items. Since all the small, easily jumbled items are in smaller bags, they're less likely to get lost in the bottom of my big bag. I try to keep my electronics cube better organized by using...

Gear ties: these are like durable, reusable twist ties for things like cords, cables, handfuls of hair elastics, anything you want to keep bundled up and untangled. When I want to use something like my earbuds or a charging cable, I just twist the tie around my tote handle so it won't get lost. Some of the items also in my electronics cube are:

Plug adapter (international travel, I have one for every country I'm hitting, even if it's just an airport stop - one 14-hour stranding in the Hong Kong airport overnight taught me that lesson.)

Compact multi-outlet power strip which can make you new best friends in airports and make the stupidly-configured power outlets in hotel rooms actually workable.

Four-port USB charger: one of these means I only need one outlet to charge my phone, tablet, e-book, and my...

Portable power bank: nothing sucks more than a long flight when all your electronic entertainment doodads have run out of juice. My power bank can charge my phone fully 3+ times and is about the same size as the phone itself.

Onto the comfort items! Some of them go into a packing cube in my tote, others are larger so they're separate.

Disinfecting wipes: I like these because they're individually wrapped and good for both hands and surfaces. First thing I do when I get onto a germ-factory airplane is wipe down my armrests and tray table. Also great for public restrooms when you find out there's no soap.

Filtering water bottle: in many cities around the world, airport bottled water is crazy expensive, and water bottle filling station water is, in a word, nasty. I can attach this bottle to my tote with a carabiner and the filter makes most municipal water taste at least halfway decent.

Travel pillow: personal preference but this one is my favorite. My husband prefers a memory foam donut one but I find it heavy and bulky and not supportive in the right way. The Travelrest rolls up to a compact shape and inflates in seconds.

Soft, layered clothing: I wear yoga pants, a sports bra, a t-shirt, a light drape cardigan and slip-on shoes. The only thing remotely binding I wear is...

Light compression socks: actually my pair is just a regular pair of knee socks in the Nordstrom house brand that I keep snug by only wearing them for flights and handwashing them so they don't lose their elasticity. No matter how often I get up and move around during a long flight I'll get puffy ankles if I don't wear snug socks. Over those, once I'm in my seat I put on...

Fuzzy slipper socks. My feet freeze on planes but I don't like wearing my shoes for that long. Even though I don't think my shoes smell, if I get the stinkeye from a neighbor, I put my shoes into a plastic bag, otherwise I can usually get them off and hide them under the seat in front of me before my seat mates arrive to my row. Because I get so cold on flights I also wear/carry a...

Pashmina or other large scarf: works as a fashion accessory, blanket, pillow, and a don't-talk-to-me barrier when worn like a hood. Also covers up that spot where you spilled your coffee on yourself because you had to be at the airport at 5:30 a.m.

Sleeping mask: slap one of these on, engage your (preferably noise-canceling) headphones, lean into your travel pillow, cuddle up under your scarf and try to forget you're rocketing 35K feet over the planet in a big metal tube.

Single-use toothbrushes: I love those little Wisp toothbrush things - I usually keep them in my handbag or work desk for those oh-shit-here-comes-the-CEO-and-I-just-had-a-grande-latte moments, but they're also great for a little freshening up on a plane or in an airport without needing to get out your actual toiletries.

Moisturizers: because plane air is so drying this includes travel-sized lotion, face moisturizer, and lip balm. So much lip balm. I like Aquaphor myself.

Snacks: be nice to your fellow travelers and keep your snacks non-smelly, quiet especially if it's an overnight flight, and not too messy. I like to bring things like clementines, Babybel cheese, trail mix, chocolate covered nuts, or granola bars. Gum is good for takeoffs and landings. If you're prone to motion sickness, candied ginger is great.

Have a comfortable flight!

There's only so much you can change with a mattress, unfortunately. This pillow is pretty awesome and helped me out a lot.

The reality is that some of these symptoms won't go away. I'm a 25/M with the same diagnosis, so I can relate. The worst part about this dignosis is you can't cure a lot of the problems, you just have to work on coping mechanisms.

> DHR6000 pillow

Um... just asking, but are they REALLY that pricey lol? Probably cheaper sites right? Or not? ^ - ^ ''

u/frontreverie · 3 pointsr/Dakimakuras

It's not memory foams, but A&J's DHR 6000 is considered the best inner pillow. The filling's "high quality polyester silicon cotton". Amazon JPN ships it internationally now. They say Gate also sells them but they seem to have stopped.

I guess if you really want you can custom order a 160x50 memory foam pillow. Seems like Foam source, Foam Order and some other sites do custom sizes. No idea about the cost, though.

It'd be better to buy the DHR 6000, really.

u/Hrothmund16 · 3 pointsr/Dakimakuras

People always get the DHR 6000 recommended which is 160 x 50 cm. There also is a 150 x 50 cm version, It is 9255 yen but shipping will add a good amount to the total price.

Use a lumbar support:

Make sure your hips are ABOVE your knees in your driving position, else you'll end up with hip problems as well

u/spherocyte100 · 3 pointsr/medicalschoolanki

Get a lumbar support pillow. Works wonders

Or get a portable table for bed

the downside is that studying while lying in bed makes me sleepy.

u/Blubaru23 · 3 pointsr/WRX

Before dropping a ton of money or modding your seat maybe you could try one of these?

At most you would be out a couple bucks.

I used to have horrible back pain. At night I would cram pillows under my legs and in the morning I would curl in the fetal position before getting out of bed to release the pain. I made a few changes that fixed it for me.

  1. I got the lumbar support I linked above for my car (2-3 hour commute to work)

  2. Bought a DXRACER computer chair (I play games)

  3. Started working out a little bit.

  4. Bought a memory foam mattress pillow topper for my mattress.

u/Dragonbear64 · 3 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Hi all,
Do you have any inner pillow you would recommend? I've been using this pillow and while it's comfortable most of the time, it tends to not keep its shape. The pillow's filling just clumps to one side of the pillow. I was thinking of getting a DHR6000, but I'm not sure if the "new" one is good or not. I've also seen the CMD9000, but I don't know much about that one.

I have a 2018 Premier and bought a lumbar cushion from Amazon:

I am 6'6" and felt the seat really rounded out my back and didn't support my lumbar at all. With the cushion I find it acceptable. Still one of the worst features of the car, sadly.

u/Cait-IRL · 3 pointsr/grubhubdrivers

I couldn’t work without mine to be honest.

This is the one I bought off of amazon, it has over 3k reviews and very reasonably priced. I also bought one for my friend and another for my computer chair at home.

Everlasting Comfort 100% Pure Memory Foam Back Cushion - Lumbar Support Pillow for Office, Car and Chair

u/CabotFan42 · 3 pointsr/ChronicPain

Look for a lumbar support pillow. You're gonna look weird carrying it around but it supports your lower back and it will help with the pain from sitting in the chairs in classrooms. I use it everywhere, car, classes, library etc.

I use this one personally:

Try Tiger Balm. It's another cream similar to icy hot but works better for me.

I have a tens unit from Amazon that works pretty well for a battery powered one:

Also an electric heating pad and reusable ice pack or if your dorm has an ice maker like mine a reusable bag for ice depending on what works better for your back.

Get a good backpack. Something with a sternum strap and a hip strap if possible so that the weight is more evenly distributed. Also, I never carry anything other than exactly what I need for class to keep the weight down and try to buy as many textbooks as possible on Kindle so that there's less weight there as well.

A good mattress pad if you're in the dorm so that you can supplement the mattress with one that's better for your back. They can get expensive (Mine was about $100) but it's an investment in your health.

A good pair of inserts in your shoes from Roadrunner, an orthopedic doctor, or a similar store where they mold to your feet has truly helped my pain a lot. I stick them in the pair I'm wearing for the day and I'm good to go.

u/drnick1988 · 3 pointsr/FordFiesta

This works for me. Makes me hate the car a little less.

u/mellowmonk · 3 pointsr/CasualConversation

Lower back support might help. I sit a lot at work and have had a lot of back problems over the years, including back surgery. I use this back cushion on my office chair and in my car. It’s helped tremendously.

u/KingKoil · 2 pointsr/parentsofmultiples

If “lots and lots of pillows” and “build a pillow fort” haven’t worked for you, there are specially shaped body pillows for pregnant women. Expensive, but some swear by them. Here’s an example:

u/gravrain · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I got my wife one of these pregnancy pillows when she was at 6 months and it completely changed things for her. She could actually get comfortable in bed and sleep well. She resisted buying one initially because she didn't think it would make that big of a difference. But it totally did.

I also took up grilling everything outside on our porch for the last two months of her pregnancy.

u/tippytoez · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps
u/nutmegtell · 2 pointsr/popping

Gosh, I'm so sorry. If it really is a pilonidal cyst, you need to have the whole area removed. They should have taken the whole thing out the first time. If it is a PC, the recovery may be uncomfortable for a few months, but if you don't take care of it now it will get more painful, and can become infected causing more painful and expensive surgeries.

Here's my free advice (lengthy but worth every penny lol)

-Make sure your surgeon understands what they are talking about, and are current with what these cysts are and treatment. Don't be afraid to get a second opinion. Ask about the length of hospital stay and post op wound care. If they want to suture it closed, get out of there. That's a good way to have a reoccurrence and infection. Which I'm guessing you don't want.

-The wound is basically like taking an ice cream scoop out of your back. It may go to the bone. It will need to be left open and will heal from the inside out. Your body will create 'granular tissue' that fills it in. In a couple of months, skin will grow to cover it. You will NOT have a lasting scar at all!

-They may offer you either 'packing' or a wound Vac. Go for the Wound Vac. It gently pulls your tissue up, and in recent studies it's been shown that the wound will heal the granular tissue faster and with less pain and trauma to that area. They will have them at the hospital, and will give you a portable one for at home. My daughter carried it in a backpack so it wasn't really noticeable. But it does make a farting sound every so often. Not awesome for a 14 y/o shy freshman :/ )

-My husband had his wound packed with gauze (back in 1983). He had to have his mom change it twice a day for 6 weeks. If this is your only option make sure you get strong pain meds. I suggest for the first month or two go to the wound care clinic and have them do it.

While at the hospital:

-Get as much information as you can. Bring someone who can be your advocate. Obviously, in our case, as her mom that was me. It has to be someone who has a cool head and can listen to the care team to process what they are saying to help you. If you don't have a person to help, keep some note cards or a journal next to you and write down all of your questions as they come to you. Make sure they are answered in a way you understand. Don't be afraid to ask more than once or twice. My thoughts on hospital staff- If you're nice, ask the nurses about their families and don't yell at them you'll get much better care. Be assertive but not aggressive.

-Take any and all pain meds you need. It might start with (most likely) morphine, but they have everything available. Don't be afraid to ask. If you have a history of abuse, they can help monitor so you don't get on fragile ground. They gave my daughter an rx for morphine patches, Vicodin and Xanax for wound changes. Because they caused her severe pain but also anxiety. She never needed the patches and she stopped needing the others after two months. She takes a Tylenol or Motrin every few weeks now. Her granular tissue is healed, her skin is getting thicker, but it's still a bit tender.

Post surgery:
You won't be able to sit on your bottom or lie on your back for a few weeks. Get this body pillow - called the Snoogle was recommended by her Physical Therapist while in the hospital. You could get one now, it might help release the pain in your lower back before surgery. It was VERY helpful and worth the trip to the baby store on the way home. These inflatable waffle pads are also great for when you can lay on your back without putting pressure on the coccyx -- and far better than the inflatable doughnuts they give to some people.

You won't be able to get it wet, so get some dry spray shampoo, and you can use these disposable wash cloths to bathe yourself as needed. Showering wasn't too hard, the wound Vac is sealed and I just set it outside the shower while she was in it. Once she was done with the wound Vac and able to shower again the wound care team recommended this tea tree body wash from Trader Joe's .

I have a list of post op necessities, I can post if want (even more) information lol. I figure knowledge is power, so if you go in knowing what you want, what to ask about, and knowing what's coming up, you'll feel more in charge and have control/agency over your own care.

Best of luck, let me know how it goes! Maybe it's not this at all :) 🤞

u/xRVAx · 2 pointsr/predaddit

do you have one of those "Snoogle" full body pillows? or a cheese wedge pillow?

I think Alpacassos/Arpakassos are the cutest things ever. <3 :>

If you're a fan of round, big, soft cute things, I'd definitely recommend checking out :) I have a Squishable myself and can attest to how awesome they are for cuddling!

I've also heard great things about body pillows. Similarly, there's those "dakimakura"/Japanese body pillows where you can replace the pillowcase with your favorite video game/anime/TV show character/male/female/whatever if that floats your boat. Example here slight NSFW.

There's also the infamous boyfriend pillow.

Hope this helps! I love cute soft things myself. :> Thanks for the contest and good luck. <3

A maternity pillow like the Snoogle or a gift card to a place that sells bras.

u/sayyestolycra · 2 pointsr/January2018Bumpers

I find it pricey when I compare it to, even considering the exchange rate. The last thing I was looking at was a Snoogle. $48.99 USD on $89.99 CAD on $48.99 USD is only $62.47 what the heck is that? I do like the Amazon reviews and bestseller lists - sometimes I look stuff up on there just for the reviews haha.

u/tenaciousb83 · 2 pointsr/NewParents

Hey, congratulations!

The first thing I bought for my wife, after we found out we were pregnant, was the Snoogle pillow. Basically a contoured body pillow for you to sleep with. It especially helps in the later weeks of pregnancy.

A sitz bath is awesome, for you, right after childbirth.

The newborn Boppy is good for the beginning. We used it A LOT, especially in the first couple of months.

The regular Boppy is a must have, in my opinion.

Swaddling is the best, and BREATHABLE swaddle blankets are important. We have a couple of muslin blankets that we’ve used from day one.

The American Academy of Pediatrics book, ‘Caring for Your Baby from Birth to Age 5’, is a an absolute must-have general reference book to keep around, in my opinion. It gives you a lot of the exact same advice and tips as your pediatrician will. Every now and again, my wife and I read or re-read the section that correlates with his current age range, and then we read the upcoming age range. It also answers a lot of basic health and care questions that many people just don’t think to ask.

Also, quick piece of advice: Don’t get attached too early to any specific brand for anything that’s meant to go in a baby’s mouth (bottles/nipples, pacifiers, teethers, etc.). Your baby will choose her preferences. It kinda sucks to go ahead and buy and wash the full Dr. Brown’s bottle set, only to find out that your baby doesn’t like Dr. Brown’s, and prefers Munchkin Latch instead. Trust me.

u/Oodles_of_noodles_ · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/midnightea · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I used a snoogle while I was pregnant and it was a game changer for me.

u/LittlesLittles_Esq · 2 pointsr/relationships

This is the best. I have tried a bunch of them, and have always gone back to my Snoogle. Yes, it's considered a "pregnancy pillow," but that means nothing--it's just an awesome body pillow marketed to pregnant women. Also, buy the pillow case that has the zipper, if not, it's a pain in the ass to get the cover on and off for washing.

Good luck!

u/Legallybrunette09 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I am just about where you are, and have been having the same issues. For me, not being able to sleep on my back aggravates the back pain, so I got this from amazon, it has helped SO MUCH, plus using a supportive pillow while sitting:

A body pillow.

I've recommended this specific one at least 6 or 7 times and each time it's a big hit.

Tell her you love that she's carrying your baby & you want her to be comfortable.

(And congrats to you both! We're in our first year and loving it!)

u/POMpyro · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have this pillow And I love it, it's so nice to be able to flip sides without having to flail the pillow around with me, I do pleanty of that on my own :) it also props the belly up so I can do a half side half stomach sleep. it takes up a good amount of space so it's not ideal for sleep cuddling but it seems you don't have to worry about that :) other than that the only thing I have against it is its kinda expensive. But then again how do you put a price on good (as good as possible) preggo sleep?

u/snowcliff84 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have MS and heat is a huge problem for me. My neck and back hurt constantly(also an MS thing), so I need contoured pillows for support. Normally those absorb heat A LOT and make it so much worse for me, and I get huge migraines. This pillow I think would help me A LOT, I wouldn't have to wake up with huge migraines anymore! That's a major comfort. :)

If you can afford a little more then your budget, a hot air balloon ride would be pretty magical.

Okay, okay, a more realistic gift: A Kobo would be nice. It'll give her a chance to read more when she is commuting to school (should she take public transit) or between classes, without having to haul around more clunky books.

You could also check the local theatre listings and see if there are any musicals or plays coming in that she might enjoy seeing. She sounds like she's got a pretty full plate with school, so she might really appreciate a special night out with you full of things to get her mind off of school.

I'm not confident it's legit if you look at the sellers list. The top seller has few and low ratings, it's not being sold officially/direct. If you're set on the DHR6000, you can find it legit on Amazon JP and it'll ship directly from Amazon.

Others might have a better source. However personally I'd just recommend the Dakimakuri Inner. General consensus puts it in-between the DHR6k and DHR7k.

u/TenmaIsMyLight · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

There are a couple of options that you have as at this point you are looking at upgrading to a more premium Japanese pillow. While there are a number of pillows on the market such as the withAqua(heard good things), CMD series (heard some bad experiences), and more I will only cover what I can vouch for.

I own a DHR6000 which I have found to be a great pillow and would be one of the pillows that I personally would recommend. The only other pillow I could recommend would be the upgrade in the form of the DHR7000, although its price point is quite a bit higher at 15k Yen compared to 9k Yen with more weight for increased shipping costs.

Now you cannot have these items shipped directly due to the offical retailers of these pillows only distributing domestially in Japan so you need to get a proxy company to purchase and ship the item to you on your behalf. The side bar has a couple of proxy companies but there are many more out there which may be better suited to your situation. I would recommend NOT going with SutoCorp for this purchase simply due to them charging a % fee which with this type of purchase is going to be more expensive than proxies who offer flat rates. Same goes for any other proxy service that is charging a % rate unless they are offering other things that could make up for it.

u/snCoolyFooly · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

I’m not sure about a physical location, but you can just order one online and ship it to wherever you’re staying. Looks like it’s free domestic shipping as well.

u/lolthepoi · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Deciding between two pillows, please offer your opinion, which one do you think is better? THANKS!

First one

Second one

Follow up question: Are the two links below authentic sites? That also does international shipping?



u/internethistory4sale · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

are you looking in physical shops or online? i can totally understand shops with limited physical inventory space not keen on stocking too many of these so maybe you had some bad luck and happened to swing by after what they had on hand were sold? amazon still has it in stock

u/ShonenJump121 · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

So I'm not going to find really bad quality ones on amazon or anything? I'll just buy off there. Seems easiest

What about this? Look good?

u/roboslobo · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

What is the easiest way to get a DHR6000 shipped to America? I've looked into proxies but honestly I don't feel like going through the hassle of providing identification and all that. I checked and it's weird because people here say that they offer international shipping on the DHR6000. But when I check it says it cannot be shipped to America. I'd rather just buy it from amazon america here: It is more expensive but really I think it's not that much more compared to the shipping from japan. Is this amazon listing legit? If so I think I will just shell out the extra to get it from amazon and avoid the effort of going through a proxy.

EDIT: Thanks for all the answers guys.

u/GunStinger · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Cospa isn't bad, but it's not a premium body. From what I've seen on this sub, most people seem to prefer something more in the line of A&J, Comodo or Marshmallow, but those are the more serious collectors.

I was plenty happy with one that was basically Cospa's price-class with more stuffing for many years, though I have a Fules WithAqua now, which I think is the cheapest premium pillow you can get thanks to their ongoing introductory price.

u/DakimakuraGuy · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

The sidebar is probably the best place to look, since the main site I linked in my old thread isn't really active anymore. Nijigenshingu on the sidebar is still my personal favorite active site, but not every site is going to catch every single release, so it's good to look through a few. Pixiv/Twitter are great sources as well; just follow a bunch of hobby artists/companies/etc, and you'll see stuff pop up regularly.

There is only one accepted option in this sub, honestly: Suck it up and buy a DHR6000. Total cost will run you about $160, and you can either pick it up from using a proxy/forwarder, or buy it directly from Amazon with the shipping cost already factored into the inflated price. Yes, shipping is an absolute bitch (almost the cost of the pillow itself.) Yes, it's absolutely worth it. You can look at previous question threads, and you'll find at least one question each month asking about the best pillow, and the answer is always the same.

But I'll directly respond to some of the questions/points you made.

For Royal Pillow, you'd have to call them up and do a custom order. Pillow will run you about $15-20 depending on the options chosen, but they don't (or didn't when I ordered) vacuum seal pillows and they shipped UPS, so shipping is expensive. Back when I ordered 3 pillows, shipping cost me about $70, which is around what it takes to ship a pillow from Japan (that will arrive sooner, most likely.) The actual quality of the pillows is pretty lackluster. I bought their base filling, and it was too puffy for me to initially lay on, and got beat down really quick, with no good middle ground. The gel was a little better, but also didn't have any longevity and I also had an issue with feathers poking through the pillow and through my cover, damaging it.

Amazon pillows might be decent, but I don't know. Most dakimakura covers are going to be 2WT, which is rather elastic, so it's generally okay if the pillow is a little bigger, but if it's smaller you're going to have some irritating slack.

If you're going to buy a Japanese pillow, don't cheap out; shipping is going to be expensive no matter what, so you may as well opt for quality.

Air filled pillows are a cheap alternative, but I doubt they're a good long term or comfortable choice.

u/rfbasshead · 2 pointsr/IWantToLearn

LoveHome Memory Foam Lumbar Support Back Cushion With 3D Mesh Cover Balanced Firmness Designed for Lower Back Pain Relief- Ideal Back Pillow for Computer/Office Chair, Car Seat, Recliner etc. - Black

I bought this and it completely changed the way I stand.

u/thegreatbanjini · 2 pointsr/Truckers

I've got one of those and it's been a game changer. Lumbar support is severely lacking or way too low down or way too high up. Pretty much back pain free now.

u/demetri76 · 2 pointsr/simracing

I agree about lack of lumbar support hurting your lower back. I fixed that by buying one of those memory foam lumbar pillows on Amazon ( No more back pain for me even after several hours.

Now the wheel being too high and pedals too close can be fixed too if you're OK with more upright seating position. My real life daily driver is an SUV, so I'm used to that, but I understand that it could be awkward for other people. So what I did is I raised the seat by 1.5" using two 8020 15-series profile pieces that I put between the frame and the seat rails. I also used them for attaching keyboard tray and shifter mounts as it gives much more adjustability than the stock 6cm spaced holes and I coul finally mount both the shifter and the tray on the right side to have an unobstructed entry from the left side. Here're some pictures of my setup, hope that helps:

And I don't understand the complain about the shifter being too close. If you mount it using the same holes that are used for the front cross bar it will be anything but too close. When I added that 8020 I even even moved the shifter a bit closer to me. I'm 6'1" (185cm) and have rather long arms and legs and after all these upgrades the rig is pretty comfortable to me to sit the whole day in it.

u/jfritsche · 2 pointsr/NovemberBumpers2017

This is what I got...solely based on the fact that it was available for same-day delivery. LOL The price was right, though, too. It's very comfy and fluffy but firm enough to be supportive.

u/mamageti · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have this one and I really love it. It's big and fluffy and has held up well over my use so far. It has a zip off cover that can be washed. I like not having to move anything when I roll over, because moving myself is more than enough effort. It's large though, we have a king size bed and it takes up almost my full half of the bed.

u/bunnydoom · 2 pointsr/August2016Bumpers

I bought this and it's really helpful for getting comfortable. Hubby and I have a queen bed and both fit just fine even with the giant pillow. It's not hard to get out of the bed either, I just flip the leg of the pillow up to hop out rather than climb over it.

I still end up waking up on my back about half the time (something I have always done and I have no conscious knowledge of turning over in the night), but it definitely helps me at least fall asleep on my side. I'm usually a stomach sleeper and had a horrible time trying to sleep before getting my pillow!

Edited to add: It looks like that particular pillow is out of stock on Amazon right now, but there are similar ones from other companies, and I'm sure other places probably carry it.

u/gypsybunny · 2 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

I purchased a cheapo $10 neck pillow that snaps in the front so it'll keep in place. I am very curious about [this] (
Seems like it wouldn't be comfortable but it has a lot of good reviews.

u/TotoroTomato · 2 pointsr/January2018Bumpers

These are general flight comfort tips, but I think comfort is even more important while you are pregnant! I have a lot of experience with long flights.

In addition to your compression socks, wear very comfortable clothing and layers so you can adjust your temperature. Bring earplugs/noise cancelling headphones and a face mask for napping and quiet time. Ask for an extra pillow to support your lower back.

I'd check out the Trtl travel pillow too, great for longer economy flights. Those chairs really do not recline very far.

Bring way more water and snacks than you think you will need, and drink a ton of water. Really easy to get dehydrated on long flights. Bring lip balm.

Assuming you are making a significant time zone change it really helps minimize jet lag misery to start gradually adjusting to the new time in the week before you travel. If you are going east get up earlier every each day the week before travel, west stay up later and sleep in later if you can. Take Unisom to help you get yo sleep on the plane (usually I would take half a prescription sleeping pill, but not doing so while pregnant. Unisom is pregnancy safe).

Might be worth looking up some basic hip and leg stretches you can do while in your seat too.

u/givemethatllamaback · 2 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

I bought this recently and its very comfortable. Its technically a body pillow but I like to just slip it under my legs or between my knees (when sidesleeping). Its also big enough so I can move a little under my back and still have it beneath my knees. Might not be exactly what you're looking for but its helped me enormously!

u/artipants · 2 pointsr/infertility

Totally depends on what kind of pillow you want!

My husband absolutely loves his memory foam countour pillow, something like this. I got an old friend of mine this pillow after he complained about always getting hot at night and I know he was still using it a year later. I personally just use $5 cheapies for my head but absolutely need a body pillow to get comfortable. I'm considering one like this because it's longer and firmer than the one I have now.

u/scarletbegonias · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

This pillow has changed my life:

I started using it after unbearable hip pain while sleeping around week 21 and it has made such a tremendous difference. I don't use a regular pillow anymore, and nestle everything from my head to my bump to my legs around this pillow on my side. My hip pain is gone. We had two nights in a hotel without this pillow and it was noticeable difference.

u/AlexTakeTwo · 2 pointsr/Fibromyalgia

I absolutely love body pillows, I usually end up laying half on them in addition to having it prop up my knee or support my hips. You can get a basic one at Target for around $15, and they'll last for a while. I went through those every couple years til I got a better one online that lasted about 5 years. I recently upgraded to the Cadillac of body pillows, though, and it's amazing. Memory foam so it contours really nicely, and heavy enough that it doesn't shift around. It is stupid expensive, but I decided it will last long enough to be worth it.

u/orangesherbet99 · 2 pointsr/anime

Several of the places that sell dakimakura, also sell the pillow. I've tended to buy the pillows off of Amazon after searching for ones that are the right size. I highly suggest not buying one of the body/maternity pillows from a home store because they all suck unless you actually find a decent one. The tend to go flat pretty fast.

Currently have:
However, the pattern is thick on the pillow, it kind of shows throw the dakimakura.
I originally had this:
It is pretty nice, the problem is the down feathers occasionally poke through.

For imperial sizes get one that is 20x60in if it doesn't have cm listed.

u/JoeCumiaSr · 2 pointsr/opieandanthony

Here's a link to the exact one I got from Amazon :)

u/Akajou01 · 2 pointsr/france

Pour les oreillers, je te conseille un oreiller en latex/à mémoire de forme (c'est important pour soutenir la nuque) . Pour dormir sur le côté, tu peux aussi investir dans un traversin ou un giga oreiller en U. Comme celui ci

C'est important de soutenir le genoux qui est au dessus quand tu dors sur le côté parce que ça va maintenir ta colonne vertébrale bien droite. Il y a plein de "Knee pillow" dispo si tu veux check.

u/JLFR · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

I got this one. Crazy expensive, but OMG! SOOOOO comfy!!!! I like all the positions you can put it in compared to some of the other brands. It's also soft enough that it doesn't cause pressure points to form. It is big though. If you have an SO, you will need a kings size mattress to fit this pillow, you, and a second person. Again, worth it. Used to wake up barely able to move from hip and knee pain, and my arms would always be numb. Not any more :-)

Also, I got a memory foam mattress a few years ago, and that reduced my pain and fatigue by about half. Comfort Dreams from, and a metal memory foam specific frame on Amazon. I am sure it has paid for itself in all the pain meds I was able to reduce.

Good luck :-) and air hugs!

u/antiqueembryo · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I got one of these and haven't had this problem since. It has something to do with sleeping on your left side so you don't block a nerve:

The only times I've woken up with screaming cramps is if I am not using the pillow to keep my legs separated and my hips aligned. It helps a lot.

u/HH912 · 2 pointsr/Sciatica

Yeah the nausea from meds is one reason I stopped. The nausea was worse than the minimal pain I had at that point.

On mobile so I apologize for the long links but she usually uses some combination of the following:

This one almost nightly - ComfiLife Orthopedic Knee Pillow for Sciatica Relief, Back Pain, Leg Pain, Pregnancy, Hip and Joint Pain - Memory Foam Wedge Contour

This one less often now that she has the wedge below - Sleeping Pillow for Back pain,Soft Memory Foam Lumabr Support Cushion for Side and Back Sleeper, Therapeutic Body Pillow for Sciatica Leg Hip Pregnancy and Joint Pain

Every night, this is her favorite item and helps a lot in combination with our Casper mattress -

She still has occasional pains and some days are better than others. She was prescribed opioids for the pain but refuses to take them for the obvious reasons. She was taking 4-6 aspirin every 6-8 hours but now she isn't taking any daily pain medication anymore and only takes a couple ibuprofen on "bad" days. We also recently started going to the gym where we do different muscle groups each visit but it seems like back and legs days have helped her immensely as well.

u/thetafour · 2 pointsr/ft86

like a lower back support?

kinda like that?

u/lilnuke50 · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

6'1" here as well. I lower the seat all the way and then add about 2 pulls up. I set the steering wheel so that when I look down, I can easily see all of the guages. Then I lay my arms on top of the steering wheel, with my back against the seat, and move back till wrists are sitting on top of the steering wheel. Then I adjust the recline for comfort. No issues driving for long period of time.

As for lumbar, they make these great little cushions now that you can use. I can't go without the lumbar, then my back will hurt.

u/kelbellene · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Get yourself a Snoogle! That's the only thing that helped me. I use it with the curve at my back instead of hugging it in front like a body pillow. I was pain free 99% of the nights until around week 34. Now I get pain a few nights a week, but it hurts a lot less and is much easier to fall back asleep.

I know they're kind of expensive, but so worth it.

u/greenbeantime · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

A fucking Snoogle.

I didn't think I would need one when I first found out about them early on, so I didn't bother getting one. Then about a month ago, it started getting very painful to sleep (my hips and pelvis would ache no matter what side I was on) and making a pillow fort around myself only helped so much (they slide around too much and aren't shaped right) but by then I was like "Oh, I don't need it that badly and I don't want to spend $50 for something I'll only use for two months." I know I won't use it post-partum because I hate feeling crowded when I sleep.

Well now, I've a month left to go and I wish to god I'd bought the damn thing a month ago. Because I certainly can't justify spending the money now but it's impossible for me to sleep and I'm miserable all the time.

So I wish I had a Snoogle, but I stubbornly refuse to buy one with such little time left to go.

Can you find out if she's sleeping with a curved pillow? I hate to think what sleeping during my pregnancies would have been like without mine. It was so amazing:

NAH Sleep is important for every single human. I have this exact same pillow and my husband felt the same way. Our work around was to buy this: instead. It still has all the support and comfort of the other, but only half the size so my husband can slither up against my back and still have all the closeness. Gl!

u/kanadia82 · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Definitely get some support to distribute the weight. I had a full body length pillow (basically the length of 2-3 pillows) my first pregnancy. It was helpful. For my current pregnancy, I have this Snoogle, and it’s been a godsend since the first trimester for me.

u/abbylangner · 1 pointr/news

Lots of great advice already on this thread, but I wanted to recommend this book as well. It is witty and playful, but has a lot of really good information.

Also, be the best husband in the world and as soon as your wife starts getting big, buy her a body pillow. I made it through my first pregnancy without one, but now at 31 weeks along with my second, I can't imagine how I survived without it.

$52 through Amazon and worth every penny! I used a regular body pillow until about 18 weeks and then it really wasn't helping much anymore. This thing has saved my sleep.

u/pixygypsy · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I am 24+3 and got my half-moon style Snoogle in the mail about a week ago. It has definitely helped! I was waking up several times a night with hip pains. I tried shoving regular pillows between my knees (starting around 20 weeks) but it wasn't providing any relief, just something extra to fumble with in the middle of the night. Having some sort of contoured body pillow is worth every penny imo. I can switch from side to side without having to re-build my nest. I can roll back into it and rest my shoulders, without ending up flat on my back. It is so comfortable, that I drag it with me from my couch to my bed. My animals love it too. 10/10 will use even after I'm not pregnant anymore.

u/ValarDohaeris · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

My partner has been over the moon. This is a man who was considering getting a vasectomy over the last year (and he's not even 30) - our pregnancy was a big surprise. But he's SO HAPPY and excited about the pregnancy; he always has a hand or two on my bump, and loves to lay with his head on my belly to hear & feel movement. And he genuinely loves my pregnant body, which is a relief sometimes when I feel like a land whale. (My self-confidence is sometimes really high - but it also falls victim to the fact that pregnancy has given me the unpleasant, uncontrollable ability to change my mind at a moment's notice and hold a vastly different position on something than I did 30 minutes prior. And I'm supposed to name a child with this kind of indecisiveness? DAMNIT.)

Being pregnant makes you feel a little bit like superwoman, once you get past the initial misery. Right at about 13 weeks is when mine finally knocked off. 16-17 weeks were SO AMAZING - I wish I could have bottled that whole time period and kept it going forever. Energy, libido, mood, everything was GREAT!! Now I'm starting to sneak into "Ehhh, nothing is comfortable anymore =(" territory, as well as dealing with my GOD DAMN BRAIN failing me at every turn.

Get a pregnancy body pillow. The normal flat ones they sell at home furnishing stores won't do it. I got a Snoogle and it is AMAZING. OMFG. Best sleep I've had in a long time, and it's actually been helping cut down the insane pregnancy dreams. I slept for 12 hours last night. A-mazing.

Once you get out of the first trimester - where YOUR body is doing all the really hard work - it's up to the kiddo to just get bigger and develop. So it's been really fun to track all the changes and see him on the ultrasound. Feeling him move is crazy, and getting crazier all the time. In the beginning (I first felt him at 16 weeks), I could only feel him if he kicked the front of my stomach. Now I can feel him moving around and kicking down or toward the back. It's very bizarre, but kind of cool!

u/swedish_horse · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I got one of these

It felt like a lot to shell out for a pillow, but honestly - it's amazing. I use my regular pillow for my head and position this like a U around my body. I can elevate my feet, prop myself into a semi-side lying position (which helps with my hip pain), and tuck it under my bump when I'm on my side. It's seriously made a huge difference in the quality of my sleep. (I still get up 5 times a night to pee, of course.)

The downside is the price and the fact that it takes up so much space. My husband is definitely counting down the days until he evicts the pillow.

u/not_that_girl · 1 pointr/InfertilityBabies

My issue with the snoogle was that I turn over a lot, and it was impossible to deal with. I ended up with this one that's basically a U shape where your head is in the bend with pillow on both sides, but your legs are free. It's a vast improvement, but is pretty big.

u/whenwillthewaitend · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

If I had it to do over again I would have gotten the Leachco Back 'n Belly or the "chic" version of that pillow. What I actually got was a mini snoogle and while it was fine and perfectly sufficient early on I'm now having to supplement it with a couple of other pillows. Sure using 2 other "normal" pillows that I already had laying around the house is cheaper but it's also a huge pain. Every time I roll over or get up (ya know, approximately 20+ times a night trying to get comfortable or getting up to pee) I have to move every single pillow then re-position every single pillow. There is nothing that takes you from mostly asleep to wide awake during a position change like having to wrestle a snoogle and also move 2 other pillows while struggling to get everything in the perfect spot. And, ya know, no pressure to make sure it's all in the right spot because if it isn't I'll just wake up an hour later with severe rib/back/round ligament/whatever pain and won't be able to go back to sleep at all.

At this point the $60-90 for the back 'n belly (or chic version) that I thought wasn't worth it is feeling 100% worth it. I'd love to have a pillow that goes around so I can just roll over and already have stuff on the other side if that makes sense. I've actually seriously considered spending the money just for the 3rd trimester because honestly maybe 3-4 more weeks is enough to get my money's worth. At this point anything that helps me not hurt all the time and helps me sleep is kinnnndaa priceless.

So that's my advice. Definitely get a pregnancy pillow. Definitely don't think about "but it's so expensive for something I'll only use for X long!" unless you just really don't have the money in your budget. Get whatever you honestly think has the best chance of keeping you comfortable for the next however long, including the 3rd trimester instead of saying "maybe this will be good enough and it's so much cheaper!" like I did.

ETA: If it matters I had a bad lower back before pregnancy. I've also always had a tendency to get intercostal chondritis (rib pain) and pregnancy has only made that 100x worse. And I have bad pelvic girdle pain. If you don't have any preexisting issues and you don't end up with PGP it's possible you wouldn't need as much support to stay comfortable.

u/nutella47 · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

I originally had the snoogle but exchanged it for the back and body pillow, which I like much better. As you can see, this pillow hugs you on both sides. It's been hot as hell here lately and the pillow hasn't made anything worse. I sleep with a fan pointed toward me and haven't woken up overheating. I highly recommend this one if you toss and turn a lot like I do.

u/OMGSpaghettiisawesom · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Ooooh wedding things! We had these at our wedding and EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PHOTOBOOTH, they're awesome! Our guests used them a whole bunch and it made for super funny pictures!

And in the home section, I highly suggest a good pillow. You won't believe the difference it makes! And we do spend most of our life sleeping.

You can't pick your friends nose! ;)

u/SilverViper · 1 pointr/migraine

Yes, sleep is insanely important and anything that's disturbing it or your neck will cause issues. Go to a store like Bed, Bath and Beyond and try out some pillows if you can. If you get a memory foam, make sure to take your contacts out at night as they often dry out your eyes.


^i have the standard one. It's very nice but needs a few days to air out. It doesn't stay 100% cool if you aren't a person that falls asleep quickly. Best description is that it is firm but giving. I use the gel insert below to deal with the coolness issues.

u/SoloWhoa · 1 pointr/solotravel

Does anti-motion sickness medicine (like Dramamine) work for you? If so, I recommend getting that for the flight. I also have prescription Ambien that I bring to help me sleep.

I bought this inflatable pillow a few years ago and it helps me sleep better than those neck pillows. And since it’s inflatable, it’s easy to pack.

I also recommend wearing shoes you can easily take on and off as well as comfy socks.

  1. This Slide because my daughter loves to climb on everything and her outdoor toys are here favorite toys and this could be used inside too when it's too cold out or raining. She's got so much cabin fever right now. This is a great way for little ones to burn off energy inside or outside.

  2. This office chair I work from home on a laptop so I need a good, supportive chair for my lower back pain. This chair is ergonomic and great for use when you're online!

  3. Memory foam cool pillow. Everyone could benefit from a high quality, comfortable pillow to improve their sleep!

  4. This book on making yourself happier this is an awesome book!! It's a creative way to find more happiness in your life and help depression and anxiety. This book would be a great tool for anyone.

  5. Cooking, with SCIENCE how cool is this?! It's using science to learn awesome ways to cook!! This is for anyone who needs food to survive, but hates those annoying kitchen fires!

You do have some pretty practical things on your wish. I'll try to keep my choices under $75 in case you really want something, that way you can buy it right away (or even buy a few things at one time)!

  1. This Pillow can be very important for you if you really need a new pillow and/or don't sleep well at night. New, comfy pillows can really help with staying cool, clean, and comfortable at night.

  2. This Laptop Cooler also seems very important. If your laptop does get very hot, or you can't use it on your lap, then you need this! This cooler/stand/lap thing will really help as your laptop will stay cool, last longer, run faster, and you can use it on your lap and on the go!

  3. Rechargeable Battereis are always very important as they save time, money, and the earth! You don't have to buy batteries all the time, you can have new batteries ready all the time, and you don't have to throw batteries away when they die!

  4. Got to have some NSFW fun every once in a while

  5. Nutella... That's all I have to say

  6. Music is very important. It is always good to have a decent pair of ear buds so you can always relax, jog, bike, clean, or do anything to music!

    I may add more stuff to the list, but you get the point! Go for important, but also fun, stuff!

    Surprise me and pick anything from my wishlist! :D

I've had the first one for 9 years now. Still kicking. I paid $140 back then though.

Also, if you have a Costco near you, they sell pillows that have pieces of memory foam (like diced up) in a 2-pack for $10. They don't retain shape well, so you can't really prop them up or anything, but they're awesome for sleeping.

Malouf Talalay Latex Zoned Pillow, Queen

u/purple_sage2 · 1 pointr/funny

If you sleep on your stomach then you probably wouldn't like the pillow like I have. It doesn't squish down like a feather pillow does. You could try one of these pillows and maybe get the low loft one.

u/Gefilte_Fish · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Sorry that I can't give you a brand, but I bought mine from a local mattress manufacturer. It's made from the same talalay latex that my mattress is made of. Comes in soft, medium, firm. Firm is probably best for side sleepers like us. Very comfy. Look up talalay latex pillow. Expect to spend about $80.

Stay away from memory foam. It's a closed-cell foam and gets really hot because it can't breathe.

Edit: This looks close to what I have:

Latex pillows last forever compared to the standard fiber-filled ones I kept having to replace every six months. I have this one. The only thing with latex is it's very bouncy and some people don't like that. (Especially when cats walk on your pillow, they bounce you around more than with a normal pillow.)

u/luckykarma83 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I must have a new pillow!! My freaking dog peed on my pillow, I have washed it three times but it still stinks to me :(

I have no choice but to sleep on it, but I can't take it husband says he can't smell it so maybe I am just paranoid but I can't do it anymore it really disturbs my sleep!

I chose my screen name based on my two favorite songs by Radiohead. I basically created this screen name when I was in Iraq because I listened to OK Computer on repeat all summer long. It's formed from the songs Lucky and Karma Police. Also, I was born in 1983.

I don't get these posts. It's a market. No one "knows" what the price will be and when. There are projections that can, using TA, give you some sort of expectation. This of course is no guarantee.

However, if you are basing your future returns on what people tell you on internet forums (especially forums that would be bullish on your investment) then what you are really asking is for someone to hold you and tell you that everything is going to be ok.

Are these pillows legitimate? Are there fakes of DHR pillows? Price is not a concern and expedited shipping through EN Amazon is the absolute fastest way to get my pillow since I'm leaving home back to uni again very soon and need it ASAP, so proxies are not an option.

u/CuddlyOctopus · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

The DHR6000 should also ship international now according to this thread and can be found here

At the time i have purchased mine through Sutocorp. There may be cheaper services for the US.

  1. Send them a mail with the item you want.

  2. They will request a deposit for the initial 9225 yen.

  3. They order the item, you will recieve confirmation they ordered it and wait.

  4. The item arrives at Sutocorp, they require you to give your adress info and desposit money for the costs for various things such as their service fee, local shipping, international shipping, bank transfer fee and if paying with paypal, the paypal %.

  5. They put it in a box, mail it, and give you the tracking number.

  6. After about a week your bell rings and the mailman gives you your pillow.

  7. Unpack your pillow, put a cover on it and hug it! : D

    It is also available through gate-japan

    I have owned 2 " Cheap" (50 USD, Ebay) pillows before knowing of the DHR6000 or /r/dakimakuras. They where both badly filled which usually resulted in a sleeping arm after 2 hours of sleep. The DHR6000 is a lot better filled, softer and the shell sticks a bit to your cover so it stays better in place. Getting a decent quality tricot cover also helps a lot.
u/DensetsuNoBaka · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

The best place to find the DHR pillows is amazon jp. You'll need a proxy to order it. Unfortunately, I don't know any respectable alternatives for Europe. Any chance anyone else can add anything?

u/flandreisbae · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Edit : ok nvm I'm stupid xd

The pillow's sold out tho. Anyone out there knows how the proxy deals with that ? Does it order as soon as it's back or just reject everything and you have to wait till it's back to get the proxy to buy it ?

From what I understood there's another company than amazon which also sells that pillow so I guess it's ok, just wanna be sure

u/hanshin5500 · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

RIP. Better to contact shopee for assistance. Right now, the most common hobbyist pillow inners usually require you to cough out about $100 or more with shipping and handling included.

anyone know where i can get a A&J DHR6000 pillow that is not a bootleg, i got a 50 X 160 CM cover, but im not sure the one i found off amazon is the real deal, or if its still the recommended inner filling

u/HH_Boba_Fett · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Well it seems you can't directly purchase it so you either have to use a proxy or a different kind of forwarding service.

This pillow is an amazon item from one of the DHR6000 links below (from

So yea those listed amazon from their respective companies should indeed be fine.

I ordered mine with SutoCorp as that seems to be one of the most used proxies in this board and while I could've gone cheaper with some other proxy I wanted to try out SutoCorp just to see how they handle things.

u/Figdaki · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

For purchasing a inner pillow it seems like the general consensus from looking around here is that the DHR6000 is the best. Do most people purchase it through a proxy or forwarding service? I found this and this on the japanese amazon but are they the same as the one from the A&J site? If they are the same would it make more sense to purchase it from amazon and use a forwarding service instead of directly from A&J with a proxy? While using a forwarding service seems like it would be cheaper everyone who mentions buying one seems to say they used a proxy. Is there some aspect of purchasing it that I'm missing?

u/NinSonNar13 · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Also, since it doesn't look like anybody has mentioned it, have you considered the actual pillow insert yet?

Almost anybody here would suggest (or if a smaller 150x50cm daki), which is pretty much guaranteed to delight her as it's very soft and squishy while holding it's shape well, but it does unfortunately come with some extra work as it doesn't ship to the US.

I myself don't have any other good substitute suggestions (help anyone?), but if you are willing to put in the extra effort, using a proxy service suggested in the side bar will help you get one.

u/Zerimas · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

That listing doesn't ship to Canada unfortunately.

>As a counter point to your statement on the insanity of spending that much on a pillow, the price of the cover of said sexualized depiction of an anthropomorphized aircraft carrier would often be in the ranges of $115+ CAD assuming that it was a Japanese cover.

I just paid for it. $173 CAD including shipping. It was this cover. I rationalize the cost somewhat because it is a small production run, and presumably the artist is making a healthy commission on the whole thing. At least I hope that is the case, otherwise I'd feel a little silly about going all in the authentic Japanese cover. Pillows are a simple and mass produced object. Granted all my pillows are shitty, but a pillow would have to be really impressive to command that kind of dough.

Is there an English friendly seller of these pillows from Japan? I found one listing on but it is $184 plus another $96 shipping. There has gotta be a more inexpensive way to get the same item.

I don't know. The whole thing is completely insane. I may as well get a decent pillow. That daki cover of Unicorn was just too goddamn cute. I had to have it. It seems weird to sleep on it because it so lewd, but whatever. I would have preferred a lurid, but more clothed version, but the illustration is just so perfect I couldn't not buy it. I rarely see covers that I really like, and when I do they aren't available so I had to jump on this one.

Sorry just trying to come to terms with fact the fact that I paid a princely sum for (hopefully) high-quality, large loli pillow case.

u/waifudakilord · 1 pointr/anime

Not the same person, but the general consensus in the daki community for 160x50 cm sized dakimakuras is the A&J DHR6000. It's pretty pricey, but it feels really nice. Usually people order it from Amazon Japan with the help of a proxy, but I think if you live in the States they recently made it available on Let me know if you need anymore help!

After talking to them on facebook I ordered it! I only have to get the DHR6000 but im not sure if I did it correct with the proxy. Ive sent them an email with the link and where to ship it (sutocorp) or do I have to do something on their website?

I am a first time buyer and just pre-ordered Maidoll's Reika cover


I have been doing some research on an inner pillow and came up with three options:

  1. COMODO CMD9900LS:
  2. dakimakuri pre-order
  3. DHR6000 (anyone know if this is legit?)

    Does anyone have any recommendations among the 3? Especially as something starting off, the DHR6000 at $170 feels pretty steep. I was thinking of starting off with a mid-range pillow and upgrading eventually if I felt like it. Any comments is greatly appreciated!
u/Skallox · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Thanks. I'll make a habit of checking it regular with the sites linked in your ancient post, that seems to be the best way to avoid the terror of missing out.

As a side note, where is the best place to find the 1600mmx500mm pillows? I understand that royalpillow will do them in the states but the options I'm finding that are readily available are:

  1. Buy this 60"x20" pillow and deal with it being a bit too short for 1600x500 pillows and perfect for 1500x500 pillow.

  2. Buy this silly round style of pillow and deal with it being too long for 1500x500, just right for 1600x500 but now everything is cylindrical.
  3. Buy a pillow directly from a retailer like amiami and potentially get gorrila-ass-pounded on shipping costs. Not to mention how quickly this style of generic pillow breaks down.

  4. Buy an air filled pillow and potential puncture and deflate your waifu.

    Is there a good/better/best option that I am overlooking?

    EDIT: These appear to be the regular suspects here but they're pretty damn expensive. Do you really get what you pay for? DHR6000 and DHR5000.

I'm finally able to buy my very first Dakimakura and I'm currently looking for a DHR6000 pillow. But before ordering one from Amazon Japan through a proxy I wanted to ask if I can just by this one from Amazon Germany.

It seems to be the Original DHR6000 and I saw some people ordering theirs from Amazon US as well. Most of the sellers also have a good rating overall so I'd much rather order through Amazon than through a proxy. Do you think it's safe to order from Amazon Germany or is it possible that it could not be the original?

u/YellowCookiexD · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras
u/Luckyshades · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Alright so the first part of a pillow is knowing the size you need, are your covers that you have, or are interested in 150x50 or 160x50.

The problem with I think any body pillow is, is the fact that they will sag/flatten over time of use. The higher quality pillow, the longer they will generally last. I have never used a Walmart body pillow, but I can only assume the quality of that pillow is far inferior to almost any other pillow, especially because it only costs 12$. If you are using the dakimakura for usage, you have to invest in 2 different products. The pillow and ofcourse the dakimakura.

If you want to avoid having a somewhat high cost for a body pillow, you are rather limited in your options. I assume that you are from the United States, I assume this because you are talking about Walmart. In the United States you have a decently priced option for a pillow and the shipping shouldn't be too high in price.
So are those pillows really good? I only have experience with the Cluster fiber or Polyester Fiber version (Can't remember which one I had). Was it good? Uhmmm due to the fact it was my first body pillow I thought it was oke. It started flattening still rather quickly though. And for the cost of the product I couldn't expect anything more really. Non the less I used it for a bit over a year, this was mostly because the cost of a pillow is much higher for me. In Europe there is no option like royalpillow for a low priced pillow that had the size I needed. If you are searching for a 160x50 you have to call them to order the custom product, this is not a size they have on their website.

The pillow we recommend though is a different story in price. It's the DHR6000. This is a pillow that's a much higher quality, the actual product cost is around 80$. But it ships from Japan, so the shipping cost will be another 70$ I think. Is ~150$ worth it to you? That is all up to you, that is the pillow I would recommend. For me, it was worth the extra investment. The DHR6000 is 160x50, for the 150x50 you will need the DHR6001

A dakimakura is the actual cover of the body pillow. You said you purchased your covers from the likes of Amazon and Ebay for less than 50$. This is a clear sign you are buying bootleg covers.

What does a bootleg cover mean you might ask. A bootleg cover means the art on that cover is stolen from artist and used without permission of the artist. That is why you will be able to find those covers for so cheap, they didn't need to invest in the art. A bootleg cover you can purchase from anywhere between 40$ up to 90$ if I remember correctly. Those prices are considered cheap in this hobby. The lower the price the worse the quality of the material. But I'll come back on the material topic.

Next to bootleg covers, there are another 2 classifications of covers. These other 2 classification are considered the legitimate market in comparison to the bootleg market which is considered illegitimate.

Doujin / Circle cover. These covers are created by artists from the fan base. This is by far the most common sort of cover amongst the legitimate covers. The price for these covers are normally 12000 yen(~100$). And they are made from 2WT(Best material). You can either get them while they are up in their preorder period or on the second hand market.

Officially licensed covers. These covers are made by the likes of COSPA and are made with full permission from the company behind the character that is depicted on the cover. These will cost around 10k yen (~85$), but are printed on materials such as Smooth Knit (Half way in between material). It is difficult to find the character you want in these classification.

As brutal as it may sound. But the only material you want for your dakimakura is 2 Way Tricot (2WT), every other material is inferior and is kind of a waste of money really.

In the 2WT material group there is a lot of different, all depending on the manufacturer. Bootlegs offer 2WT as well, but they are at the worst end of the 2WT group, the preferred 2WT are from A&J and P80(There are more, but these ones came up in my head first).

The covers you have are made from Peach skin, this is quite clear because of the price you paid. And all I can say is, you do not want peach skin. The material just feels off, the print quality ain't even good. There is no stretch in the material.

How to spot a bootlegger
I will just quote a previous post from /u/DakimakuraGuy for this.

  • If the site is in English, it's probably a bootlegger. The few exceptions to this are big Japanese sites that also run an English store (Mandarake, Hobby Search, AmiAmi, etc..)

  • Generally, legit covers run ~/> $100, and the price will almost always be in yen (regular MSRP is usually 12000 yen.) That doesn't mean you won't find deals for less than that, but if a site its selling nothing but covers in the $40-80 range, it's probably a bootlegger.

  • If a site offers multiple materials types for every cover listed, it's probably a bootlegger. If a site offers peachskin, *it is a bootlegger.

    Those tips are probably enough to weed out 90% of the bootleggers you'll come across. The other 10% can be a bit trickier, so if you ever have any questions feel free to ask.

    If you are willing to invest more in your dakimakura and need help finding a cover, or searching through the Japanese sites. You are always welcome to ask for help here. In the case of the price range you are searching, I can't help you further because I don't advocate the willingly knowing purchase of bootlegged covers.

I wanna know what's the current "top tier" inner pillow on the market right now. Back then it used to be DHR6000 but the recent amazon reviews are quite low and complains about how it's using a different material now (based from the reviews I think it started at late 2016), then I managed to stumble upon this which has better reviews and for only a fraction of the price. I just wanted to hear some thoughts and extra options if there are any.

u/eva1588 · 1 pointr/Posture

Does having your feet up high make it easier for you to sit because you are then leaning a bit more forward, taking pressure off the low back? You could do this by using a stool under your feet, but that might actually end up causing tension in your shoulders, neck and upper back. Because those parts are pushed forward, they are no longer supported by the spine, which will eventually cause pain.. I am thinking the best way to ease the lower back and also support the entire back, (middle and upper) would be to place a cushion behind the low back, or get a chair that is specifically designed for lumbar support. Below is a link to a chair cushion. Might be worth checking out.

My wife got me a lumbar support for my desk chair similar to this one

It makes so much of a difference since I have back issues. I love it so much, she got me a similar one for my car seat

I have a snoogle and it was the move comfortable thing ever the first night I used it. I actually came home EXCITED to go to bed!

Then the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th nights it was a NIGHTMARE. I was waking up every 40 minutes uncomfortable.

I put it away, using my normal costco body pillow right now but may try the snoogle again later on. I want to look into this one or one like it

The snoogle is a weird shape that makes flipping over difficult, as Im a flipper.

u/slmller3 · 1 pointr/JulyBumpers2017

I splurged and got the biggest one-

But like I said, I've heard regular body pillows from Target or Walmart can also do the trick! :D

u/anotherrachel · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I got this pillow:

I put another regular pillow underneath it because I like my head up high. For me, it's great.

u/vroomvroom404 · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

It depends on what kind of sleeper you are. I'm generally a back sleeper - occasionally on my stomach if I'm tossing and turning, but I usually wake up on my back like a log.
I ended up buying [this one] ( from amazon for back sleepers. It wedges me in really well. I often find that I have almost flipped to my back in the night, but even so i'm at like a 45 + degree angle to my side so I feel like it's ok, since I just fall onto the back part. I'm not far enough along that it's a huge issue yet - only 17+4 right now.

Edited to add: We have a king size bed and it fully takes up half of it (and I fit right in the middle). Hubby was a little pissed at first but then I gave him my normal pillow to use as a snuggle pillow so he's happy. Also our pup is very happy because he likes to sleep wedged between his snuggle pillow and my body pillow - he is a mini aussie and used to fall asleep with us on the bed but leave in the night because he'd get hot. Now he thinks he's snuggling us up but he doesn't get hot anymore! .... anyway moral of this paragraph is I don't recommend this one if you're in a queen size bed or smaller unless you have a partner who is totally fine with having less than half of the bed.

I recently was intrigued by the trtl pillow, although I haven't tried it yet. linky

Currently I have this one and I like it because it's super compact, but I'm not sure how effective it is for sleeping on coach.

u/Fuddit · 1 pointr/Entrepreneur

Let's say if I were to copy a product from someone else, will I get sued for it?

For example if I were to mass produce something like this item but change a little bit of the design to not make it look exactly like the originals, will I get sued for copyrights infringments or other kinds of lawsuits such as counterfeit or copyrights issues?

Do I have to invent my own item to sell or can I get my products from the original place that sells it and then sell it on Amazon?

I have this one (shredded memory foam, good for side sleepers) and I really like it!

u/NaptownRose · 1 pointr/Septemberbumpers2017

The snoogle is just ok (but I realize I'm in the minority camp on this). Kinda pricey for the quality of pillow and really hurts my neck. I switch between a 3-pillow stack up to sleep on my back partially sitting up, and sleeping on my side with a pillow between my knees and sometimes the snoogle at the end of the bed for knee/back/hip support. I. CAN'T. GET. COMFORTABLE. Here are my other pillows: 1. Is the favorite pillow from the Sweethome:

This nightie from the GAP is also great and keeping me cool.

u/JarJarB · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I use this pillow and it stays very cool. It can be a little weird to use at first since you have to shape it how you want but once you get it right it stays that way and it’s very comfortable. I like having different types of pillows so I got the thin and the normal ones. Thin are better if you like to sleep on your back or front, normal are pretty thick but good for side sleeping and propping yourself up to watch a movie or something.

u/cogthrob · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Fascinating, thank you for the detailed write up. Although I imagine it's kind of like headphones and the only real way to test a pillow is to hug it :] all the same I am curious if you've ever checked out something like this memory foam pillow that's readily available in USA... the size is a little off but it's super stuffed AND they will send you a whole pillow's worth of stuffing to customize it to your liking (fluffier, denser)...

u/pettheruby · 1 pointr/osugame

Just gonna leave this here If you're willing to spend the money this shit is so fucking amazing, just know that the length is slightly too small for most weeb pillow cases but it's not too noticable, I just rolled up a spare worn down feather pillow and stuffed it in mine to make up the difference. Keeps its shape pretty well, and if you ever feel like it's lost it you can just chuck it in the dryer for like 10 15 minutes on low and it's back to brand new.

u/InkedLeo · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

It's expensive but I've got a giant U-shaped body pillow. It's generally marketed at pregnant women, but as a side sleeper it's been a life saver. If you do end up getting one, I strongly suggest cutting a slit up the middle of the U and putting a fabric gusset in. If you don't, it'll eventually rip there anyway. Mine ended up tearing after a few months of use from my shoulder, but since I put the gusset in, it's perfect.

u/itypr · 1 pointr/ChronicPain

hi there! i run /r/buyamattress !

happy to help

unless you want to spend the money on a latex mattress (it's better for sex and it'll last longer than regular polyfoam), i'd recommend you go to and pick up 4-6" of HD foam (firm) for the base layer (the more you weigh, the more reason you should get 6" instead of 4"...the price difference is negligible) and then depending on your preference, get a super soft 2-3" top layer, medium 2-3" top layer or even a 2-3" memory foam (i'd recommend the gel memory foam, as regular memory foam sleeps hot but the gel helps keep you cool) if and only if you prefer the feel of memory foam.

e.g. base layer
e.g. super soft top layer
These two together, in a queen, is under $250 (including shipping).

e.g. memory foam topper

are you a front, back or side sleeper? if you sleep on your stomach, you want a very thin pillow. on your side, you want a pillow that lines up with your spine (so your neck isn't at an angle down or up) and for back sleepers, again, you want to keep your spine aligned. lots of pillows now let you remove the foam from them. this is the one i use personally, remove as much foam as necessary.

finally, i'd recommend you buy foam "wedges" for any pressure points. for instance, knee pain pts like sleeping with foam between their legs, so their bad leg isn't angled downward when sleeping on their side. foambymail will make any type of wedge you ask for, or you can find various ones on amazon. e.g.,

as an aside, if you do wnat to buy latex, do NOT buy from foambymail (all their other foams are fine but the latex is not good quality!). i have three latex mattresses, all from brooklyn bedding/dreamfoam bedding and can't be happier. but these are $1500+ if you really want the benefits of latex and you have a very firm foam base layer already, you can buy a 2-3" medium topper for $300-500 (queen or king sized).

nb: i have no financial incentive in anything i've recommended, i'm a happy customer of all and recommend these items regularly to my pts

u/PistachioMilkshake · 1 pointr/February2018Bumpers

I hate that you're having so much back pain. Mine has finally subsided. Here's a few things what might be helping me.

Desk job here also. I bought this for my chair.

Here's my maternity belt:

Otherwise, I started doing squats, slow and controlled, 5-7 days a week and that seems to have helped tremendously.

I hope you get some relief!

u/jamesdavis86 · 1 pointr/dxracer

I am also interested in this! I had a sentinel shipped in today, and the lumbar support pillow is way too stiff. I thought it was in my mind until I used the softer U-shaped neck pillow on my lower back, and omg, it felt perfect.

I'm thinking about purchasing the Everlasting Comfort 100% Pure Memory Foam Back Cushion on Amazon. Free one-day shipping is ideal!

Pregnancy pillow. My wife loved this during and after pregnancy.

u/Treb27 · 0 pointsr/hearthstone

Not knowing you or your gf or your price range, it will be kind of difficult to make perfect suggestions, but I'll give you a few that I have gotten mine, or she has gotten me that worked out to be really good:

Serious stuff:

Kindle - You say she is a genius, so maybe she likes to spend free time reading. I never thought I'd use a Kindle until I got one, and now I use it daily. It's portable, easy on the eyes, and gives her the chance to read anything she wants.

A Puzzle - I've always enjoyed doing puzzles in my free time but as I grew older I lost time to do them. My girlfriend got me one last Christmas, and we have been doing them together ever since. They are great when one of you want to watch a movie or TV that the other may not be as interested in. The other person can relax and do a puzzle, but you are still spending time together. We normally pick one out together that we really like, then glue it together when we finish it. Our plan is to eventually frame them and put them up in our office.

Less serious:

Body Pillow - I've had friends give this to their SO's and the reaction is always hilarious. For the girlfriend who "has to have you there" to sleep comfortably.

I'll leave it to those for now. I'm not much of a cook, outdoorsy person, or crafty so my suggestions for those would be lacking. Good luck, but just remember no matter what you get her, she'll love it. Just...make sure you actually get her something. It's not just the thought that counts.

Sorry love, that sucks! :( You should buy one of these :)

I recommend this insert, it has a great weight to it, it's firm, and I just like it. Do not try to wash it, you will break your washing machine. Don't ask me how I know
