Is the Foam Bed Wedge Pillow for You?
Why is this Wedge Pillow the Best?
Well, the name may be a mouthful, but the reasons why it is a solidly performing product has a lot to do with it's construction and features not found in other wedge pillows.
First and foremost, InteVision's Foam Wedge Bed Pillow has a 2 inch memory foam topper which features ventilation holes, allowing for air circulation. This makes you feel as though you are laying on a supportive cloud. The memory foam cushions your back, making it easier to remain in that position all night long! The foam base provides a solid support.
Second, it includes it's own adjustable headrest which works far better for supporting your neck and head , rather then trying to use your own pillow on top of the wedge. You can remove one of the foam inserts, making it more adjustable your you. We really liked the shape of the headrest which is another factor contributing to the overall comfort of this product.
Add to this the option to have a pillow covering that is a silky-smooth, 400 thread count, 100% Egyptian cotton cover that is removable and machine-washable (Color: white) and you have an extremely comfortable sleep aid.
Which Size is Right for you?
Well, if you are a sufferer, then you may find relief from a wedge bed pillow. We have reviewed similar wedge bed pillow products and the one that we would like to recommend is the InteVision Foam Wedge Bed Pillow. This pillow comes in different widths and wedge heights.
The narrower Foam Bed Wedge Pillow width 25" as opposed to 33" width has to do with your body size and the amount of space that you require for your arms.
The wedge height may be determined by a doctor's recommendation or personal preference. Our experiences with the 7.5" wedge was that it did NOT WORK as well, when you tried to used it as a wedge for sitting upright in your bed. This involves placing the wedge against the back of the bed to use as a back support while sitting up in bed.
For that reason, we preferred the 12" wedge version, but if you are simply looking to moderately elevate your head to 7.5", this less expensive Foam, with the bamboo cover may be your best bet.

Ease Of Cleaning Your Pillow
If your pillow attracts dirt and dust, you will find that it can easily make you sick or result in your allergies being triggered. This is one of the reasons why the vast majority of memory foam pillows are both hypoallergenic and anti-microbial so that you can be protected from respiratory issues.
Most memory foam/foam pillow types can't be cleaned in the washing machine without incurring some serious damage. The size of this pillow makes it prohibitive to wash in a machine. Spot cleaning the foam is the only option for the interior of the pillow.
The 100% Egyptian Cotton cover is fully removable and MACHINE WASHABLE for easy cleaning care.
The bamboo cover option is made of 60% polyester and 40% bamboo creating a breathable surface that provides a cool night's sleep. The cover is fully removable and MACHINE WASHABLE for easy cleaning care.
What Others Say
After reading through hundreds of reviews, there was a common agreement from most of the customers that their symptoms had either lessoned and their sleep had improved after having slept on the InteVision Foam Wedge Bed Pillow.
There were also a few negative reviews about this product, stating that it is a little too firm for the tastes of some buyers. The wedge bed pillow was designed to mimic how your bed can adjust to a raised position as though you are in an adjustable bed. Along with that elevation, is the necessity for a firmer support, similar to that of your mattress, since your entire half of your body is resting on it.
A few customers found that the cover had difficulty removing the cover for washing. This is probably unavoidable with any pillow of this size and dimensions, as it is so large.
This pillow also was criticized for its inability to be machine washed, which necessitates a spot treatment of the foam interior. The outer cover is totally machine washable however.
There were also a few complaints about an odor from the foam when it was first purchased. This odor seemed to go away after 1-2 days. Others noticed no odor at all.
The InteVision Foam Wedge bed Pillows offer a combination of memory foam and polyurethane foam base which simulates the firmness of a real mattress with the added plushness of memory foam. If you are suffering from conditions that require you to keep your head and torso elevated or you are lying in bed for an extended periods of time, this combination seems to offer a more consistent supported surface, which makes you feel more comfortable. Isn't that what it is all about?
As avid readers who read in bed, we at Rest with Style love this pillow!
