What is a Backrest Pillow?
A backrest pillow is a contoured type of pillow that is thick and structured enough to give you the support you need while sitting up in bed. In fact, this unique pillow was specially designed as a pillow for use while in bed and for that reason, is often referred to as a sitting pillow.
The very specific design of the backrest sitting pillow is exactly what makes it the perfect pillow for sitting up in bed. Most of the backrest pillows have arms attached for additional support, which allows you to sit upright in bed and still have the full comfort and support you would have if you sat in a desk chair or living room recliner.
Backrest pillows are typically filled with a polyester or foam filler insert and sometimes include a handle that is stitched into the top of the pillow for easy relocation throughout your home.
