How to Pick Out a Reading Wedge Pillow
A reading wedge pillow will make you so comfortable, you won't be able to stop reading! Here is what to look for in a wedge pillow for reading in bed, and 2 books that will keep you up all night.
What to look for in a reading wedge pillow
The ideal height for a reading wedge pillow is 10 inches. This provides enough support for your back while giving you the right amount of recline for you to sit up in bed and read. Additionally, it is enough height that if you choose to read lying down on the wedge pillow, you can do so comfortably.
A wedge pillow for reading in bed should also have a memory foam topper. The memory foam topper gives you maximum comfort by supporting you where you need it. Make sure the base of your incline pillow contains firm, polyurethane foam. This gives you maximum support and shape retention.
Maximize comfort with a knee wedge pillow
Additionally, combining a knee wedge pillow with your reading wedge pillow offers you the ultimate relaxation experience. This ensemble takes the pressure off your low back, hips, and knees so you feel like you are floating. When you support every body part, it allows you to concentrate on what you do best, reading.
Once you have your reading wedge pillow, here are a couple books that may just keep you up all night.
