BedLounge Pillow Natural WAdditional Slipcover
This was our first-ever purchase from Levenger and we were a little worried since we had never dealt with the company before but, wow, we are happy with the outcome. We purchased this as a birthday gift for my mother, who likes to read in bed. She loves it!!!
It has just the right level of back support without being too stiff. She likes the height of the arms so that she can rest her arms while she is holding a book. The pockets in the arms are good for storing small things like reading glasses or pens. The breadth of space between the arms is appropriate, and she can pull them in if she wants more support or push them out a bit if she wants a little more space.
She likes that she can remove the headreast when she wants to scrunch down a little or that she can put it back in if she wants head/neck support.
We do wish that there was a little more color variation in the covers. We went with denim, which isn't exactly great with her decor but it was better for her than the red. A navy or green option would be nice. We are going to take the extra cover in to get monogrammed.
The pillow and extra cover were well-packaged and delivered very promptly. The product definitely matches all of the features described. The pillow and two covers seem very sturdy and well-made.
This was a great gift and we heartily recommend it to anyone who likes to sit and read or work on a computer in bed! Mom likes it so much that she says that she has even brought the pillow out of the bedroom and used it in the family room on a couch there that is very deep. We couldn't be more pleased that she is so happy with this gift!

Cover is a challenge
Putting the cover on this sucker was like trying to put on ill-fitting pantyhose. The zipper on the (whatever-you-call-it)...telescoping pillow? Failed immediately. We were able to make it work again, but I would not want to have to take it off to wash it. I do not think it would survive another "forced fitting". Putting the cover on the main pillow was also a considerable challenge, especially since my husband was laughing at me and saying, "Good luck!" We'll see how it performs for reading in comfort. I just hope the cat doesn't throw up on it. I don't think I'd survive taking the cover off and putting it on again.

almost but not quite
First off the cover was not on the pillow and I had to wrestle one off to but the other on. With arthritis that was quite a challenge. For the money I would have expected it to be covered in the color of the advert.
Second- the arms do NOT have the range of motion that is claimed in the description. Maybe after some use it will loosen up but right now they are close together which makes writing a little uncomfortable and putting one arm up is impossible.
It is good support for reading - and comfortable.
If I would have known that cover came separate I would have only gotten the neutral color and saved the money and made one myself.

Exactly what it says on the tin!
As a disabled adult I am required to pretty much help myself when it comes to therapy at home and this has enabled me to sleep and join the rest of my family.
The help I received ordering and shipping to England was brilliant and when it arrived it was good to go and I was using it within the hour, and I have not had a moment when I haven't been either using it or raving about it!
