'My quality of life has improved': This memory foam knee pillow is down to just $17

·3-min read

For years doctors have recommended putting a pillow between your legs when you sleep on your side to take pressure off your back. But regular pillows can slip around, and most people don't want to shell out a lot of money for a pillow that'll just go between their legs.

Well, it turns out, you don't have to spend a ton to get relief. Amazon is having a major sale on the top-rated Cushy Form Knee Pillow, marking it down by nearly 45%! The pillow, normally $30, is just $17 right now.

Back and sciatic pain

This ergonomic pillow is specially designed for side sleepers to help ease back pain and promote sciatic relief. It's important to get this out of the way upfront: This isn't just a normal pillow repurposed to go between your knees. Instead, it's specially contoured for that area and designed to fit snuggly between your legs to promote better back alignment and relieve back, leg, hip, joint and sciatic nerve pain. And with more than 9,000 five-star reviews, Amazon customers can attest to the relief this pillow provides.

"I can literally get out of bed quicker and easier than I have in 20 years," wrote one sciatica sufferer. "This pillow has been a miracle worker for me. My quality of life has improved because now, instead of getting up and wasting precious time on relieving pain and stiffness issues, I can start my morning with a smile on my face because I'm pain-free and able to move around and do my morning exercise and household chores."

"It works!!!" Another reviewer with back pain issues reported: "Pain is my constant companion. First time using this pillow and I woke up completely pain free. No pain, no stiffness. I could bend down to pick up something on the floor and sit down and get up with no stiffness. I am just amazed. This little pillow has done something no surgery or pill has been able to do."

Quality construction

The Cushy Form Knee Pillow is crafted from high-quality memory foam to give you consistent, comfy support all night long. And, unlike a regular pillow, it won't slip out while you sleep. It even has a removable and machine washable cover, so you can effortlessly clean it as needed.

One satisfied customer gave the pillow high marks for being "very soft" but "very sturdy," writing: "I've been using it for about a week now, and I do see a difference in my sleep and how my back and hips feel in the morning."

Travel size

Got travel plans? You can easily take this pillow on the go thanks to its handy travel case. That means pain-free vacations.

"This pillow is a game changer!" wrote a relieved traveler. "I have low back pain and sciatica pain nightly...this pillow gives me nightly relief and I love the size of it, I can pack it and take it when I travel!!!"

This mega-sale is just for a limited time, so don't miss out. You — and your back — are worth it.
