How to Find the Best Knee Pillow
We’ve listed some of the best knee pillows you can buy on this page. As a matter of fact, many of these are basically ones that are “sold” to you. What you want to look for is a top quality one at a great price.
I’ve been searching for a while for the best of the bunch. The last time I purchased a pillow for my knees, I ended up spending nearly twice as much as I should have. Here’s what you need to know before you decide to buy any of them.
First, check out the fabric. You can’t expect it to last long if it has a poor fabric. Look for a material that is breathable and will wick away moisture like a sponge.
Check out the material also – think about how it fits your body and how comfortable it feels. There are several materials for knee pillows, like latex, wool and cotton. Here’s what you should be looking for:
Cotton is a very soft material, so if you have a highly allergic reaction to it, then by all means stay away from it. Wool feels great and you can easily slip it on and off with one hand, but if you have an allergy to wool, stay away from that as well. You’ll find some products labeled as wool, but those are the ones you’re looking for.
Seat pillows are great to use while sitting down to work on a computer or doing something else. If you have arthritis, chances are that you will be using this product. Keep in mind that they should fit close to your hips, as far back as you need to be to avoid crushing your back.
Cushions on the other hand, don’t generally belong in a knee pillow. They’re meant to support the back of your knees. It’s better to purchase a cushion than a foam type, because the foam tends to irritate your skin. The same goes for wool.
These products should be kept in a room temperature at around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Otherwise, the plastic used in the product could expand and cause the material to break down.
When you start looking for a knee pillow, start with the ones that are made by hand. You can get these if you want to spend a little bit more, but they’re going to cost you more money in the long run. This is especially true if you use them regularly.
Another thing you want to keep in mind is the size. A standard sized cushion isn’t going to do anything for you, so be sure that the size that you buy is custom sized.
Finally, if you’re going to be kneeling, you want to make sure that the area you’re kneeling in is wide enough to accommodate your knees. This may seem obvious, but many people tend to use cushions on their knees that don’t fit. That can lead to irritation and pain down the road.
These are some of the things that you should keep in mind when buying a knee pillow. Even though there are many brands on the market, the key is to make sure that you buy one that fits your needs.
