Cushtie Smoosh Me
Member Name: aylawarner
Advantages: So soft and comfortable, light, perfect for long travels
Disadvantages: Not a single one
I bought one of these cushions years ago and I still absolutely love it now. When I first got it I couldn't stop playing with it - it's a little bit like bubble wrap where the feel of it is just so addictive and you can't stop squeezing and squashing it.
These are snug little cushions that are filled with thousands of tiny polystyrene beads with a soft polyester material on the outside. The beads make this cushion extremely soft and squishy and whenever you lean on it, they mould into shape to fit around your body and then go back into their original shape when you get off it.
It feels so so soft and it really does feel very luxurious when you lay on it. The cushion moulds and fits into the shape of your body perfectly which is why it feels so comfortable. I had a road accident a few years ago and fractured my jaw in a few places as well as my cheekbone and this cushion was literally my saving grace after the accident. I couldn't use my normal pillow in bed as it was too hard but this Cushtie pillow was exactly what I needed. It moulded into the shape of my face and felt so soft and comfortable to lay on without causing me any pain or discomfort. I wouldn't have been able to sleep without it! Alex also used it to rest his foot on when he fractured his ankle and this provided him too with lots of comfort and pain release.
I've had the cushion for probably about 5 years so it's quite old but it's lasted very well. I've never had a split or tear in it which is always worrying with something like this seeing as it's full of tiny little balls which could spill out everywhere. It does look a lot limper than it did when I first bought it, as if the outside material has been stretched and has sagged with time, but I have used it an awful lot and have had it for ages.
These are so good that I'm buying two more of them for our trip to Africa as they'll be perfect for using both on the plane and while we're camping. Even though they're a bit bigger than most travel pillows (approx. 35 x 20cm), they're so soft, comfortable and light that I really don't mind carrying it around with me. Plus it comes in a very handy plastic drawstring bag when you buy it so it's very easy to carry around and take on your travels with you. They feel so lovely and somehow make you relax and de-stress too - I suppose they're a bit like a giant stress ball!
The cushion comes in either pink, blue or black colours and they cost just under £10 from various shops both online and offline. They are so perfect to use for long car journeys, on the plane, camping, sitting at home watching the TV, in bed reading a book or just to snuggle up to - basically anytime!
If you're looking for a comfy cushion or pillow, the Cushtie Smoosh Me cushion is the softest and most comfortable one to buy.
Summary: Ooooh, so soft
