A cushion you just want to cuddle!
Author Name: superness11
Advantages: soft and plump
I love going on holiday but hate having to sit on a plane for long periods of time. I find the headrests rather uncomfortable and usually end up annoying the person next to me by leaning on their shoulder!
I bought the Cushtie pillow before a long journey overseas and found it extremely comfortable and extremely handy. I used it on the coach, on the plane and even in the hotel to pump up the pathetically thin pillow in the hotel room. It is light enough to travel around comfortably and does not take up too much room. I find the pillow really soft and comfortable. The micro bead filling is fantastic and moulds to the side of my head, is much nicer to lay my head on than an inflatable one. The micro bead filling is great as after as few plumps always comes back bouncy and in shape, it is a little noisy when you move though and the beads rearrange themselves. Micro beads are another term for spongy polystyrene micro-granules. These are fantastically soft and make the pillow very huggable! The dimensions of the pillow are 39cm x 24cm.
There are plenty of colours to choose from and you can even get them with different prints on, so whatever your taste there is usually a design to suit you! The pillow comes in a plastic case with a zip and I have kept this for camping, you never know when you may need a waterproof cover. It will keep the pillow dry from light rain but nothing heavier than that.
I use the pillow regularly, you could even a few of them on your bed if you wanted but I mainly use mine for travel. When my boyfriend broke his arm, he used the Cushtie as a support cushion. It allowed his arm to be supported but without being too hard and offering too much resistance. He simply held the pillow on his lap and used it to hold his arm. He could have used any other pillow, but the cushtie was small and could tuck right under his arm.
I paid £13.99 from the online store Amazon but it could be available cheaper elsewhere.
The Cushtie is great to have around the home and great for taking away with you. It is soft and always plump, you can even wash them. I machine washed mine after a drink was spilled on it and it came out of the wash fine!
Summary: A loveable cushion
