Moonlight Slumber offers the U Total Body Pillow in two different designs. Consumers have the choice of either the one-piece or the three-piece U-shaped version. The pillow measures a full 60 inches in length, 35 inches in width and has a depth of 7 inches. Each item weighs 9.7 pounds. Patented Fusion Foss premium fiber made from an extended polymer fills each Comfort U. The specially created filling ensures air flow while resisting clumping, lumping of flattening. You get just the right amount of soft support without undue stiffness.
Each pillow comes encased in a white cotton/polyester blend cover that easily removes for machine washing. The case is strategically created to perfectly fit each Comfort U pillow in order to remain smooth without unwanted wadding or wrinkling.
Your Comfort U Total Body Support Pillow always stays cool thanks to Fusion Foss, which ensures continual air flow. The polyester polymer fibers are also heat resistant. Each fiber is also highly polished so they slide against one another without sticking and clumping. The fibers are additionally designed to endure the extreme temperatures of washing and drying. This characteristic means that the pillow dries faster than conventional fiber-fill pillows.
The pillows were created in the special horseshoe shape to provide back and front support while in a side-lying position. Use one of the pillow’s lower extensions to tuck between your legs from the knees down to keep your back and hips in perfect alignment. Lie on your back with the upper portion of the pillow supporting your head, neck and shoulders. Fold one or both lower ends under your legs for elevation if desired.
The unique construction, design and shape of the pillows make sleeping during pregnancy stress free. Expectant mothers get quality front and back support as their body changes. Cuddle and scrunch the pillow as needed to prevent back and hip strain that often leads to uncomfortable sciatica. While pregnant, side-lying positions are highly recommended to eliminate pressure on large blood vessels that lie beneath the growing baby. The horseshoe design also helps reduce leg and feet swelling that often plagues women during the last trimester.
Once baby arrives, the pillow serves as wonderful support when breastfeeding. For anyone suffering from arthritis or other musculoskeletal problems, the U Total Support reduces general discomfort by relieving stress on pressure points. The pillow might also prove helpful for adults suffering from sleep apnea, respiratory conditions, migraines or chronic back pain.
