What is it?
For those looking to add an extra dose of comfort to their bedtime routine, the Downcool Microfiber Body Pillow is not to be missed. It’s made with a breathable and hypoallergenic polyester cover, and a dense microfiber filling for extra cushioning while you sleep.
Since snuggling up to a body pillow provides added support for your arms, torso and legs while you sleep, it can help alleviate discomfort throughout the night, especially if you’re a side sleeper.
Though its large in size, the Downcool pillow is just about as low maintenance as any other pillow, and can even be machine washed. Used on its own or inside a pillow cover, it adds a welcome dose of comfort to any bedroom.
What shoppers have to say
Not only is the Downcool Microfiber Body Pillow an Amazon’s Choice product among hundreds of other options, it’s also backed by an impressive 4.6-star rating. It’s earned more than 3,500 5-star reviews worldwide, with shoppers raving about its comfort and performance.
“My body pillow from Downcool has been just what I needed for some pain relief in my back,” reads one five-star review. “Right from the first night I noticed a difference. The pillow itself is the perfect softness for my liking and really has helped me sleep at night. Highly recommend this body pillow for side sleepers.”
Reviewers have noted that it is a firm pillow that works well for side sleepers, as well as for adding extra support throughout pregnancy.
“I purchased this pillow for support during my pregnancy and so far it has been great! It is fluffy, but not overstuffed which is nice. If I have it between my knees it provides some support but doesn't put my lower leg to sleep if I keep it there for a long time,” one reviewer writes. “We will see how it does as my pregnancy progresses, but I have high hopes so far (provided I can keep my cat from hogging it every night)!”
Though the majority of reviews for this body pillow are positive, its weight is one of the major downsides of the Downcool body pillow. Once unrolled, some reviewers have found it to be too heavy for their liking, particularly if you’re a restless sleeper.
“The only reason why I gave it a 3 stars is because it’s extremely heavy. For someone that moves from one side to the other like me, it will be hard,” noted one reviewer.
To buy or not to buy?
As long as you don’t mind a weighty pillow, if you’re going based off of customer reviews it doesn’t seem to get much better than the Downcool Microfiber Body Pillow. That said, if you prefer something lightweight that can easily move with you throughout the night, you may want to pass on this option.
