“I never met a colour I didn’t like” – Dale Chihuly, Glass Sculptor
…Except orange. I actually quite like it now, but as a child I hated it.
I think that’s because I didn’t like orange sweets and sweets were my favorite thing in the whole world. With a packet of fruit pastilles to keep me company, I could spend hours reading, usually on the floor or hunched over on the garden swing.
For us grown-ups however, sitting hunched over or propped up on one elbow while reading is just asking for back and neck ache.
I can feel that pinched nerve in my shoulder just waiting to strike and make my life miserable if I don’t get up and move around.
So if like me, you would love to spend more time reading, and the thought of getting cosy in bed or with your feet up on the sofa with a good book sounds so tempting yet the reality is you just can’t get comfortable, then a wedge cushion might just be your solution and unlike most foam wedge pillows these are real show offs, coming in a range of bright hues or understated muted tones depending on your taste and decor – proving comfort doesn’t have to be boring.

Why Ordinary Throw Pillows Won’t Do
The most obvious answer is that trying to arrange a bunch of cushions just right so that they feel truly comfortable, generally takes a lot of faffing about and is very hit and miss at best.
More importantly, though, by using cushions you are not going to be getting good back posture support. You are more likely to be hunching yourself over or for your spine to be out of line causing back, muscle and pinched nerve pain; not to mention indigestion and heartburn. These wedge cushions provide the perfect back support and are ideal to prevent acid reflux while you sit and read, watch tv or just relax.

VANCORE Creative Comfortable Chair Corduroy Backrest Sofa Seat Car Pillow
This cushion is super chic and available in eight gorgeous shades and two sizes. The “big” size is approx 60 x 50 x 22cm and the “small” size is approx 40 x 25 x 20cm. The wedge pillow is much softer than standard foam wedges with its pearl cotton insert. So if you prefer a softer feel, back support, this one is for you. It is ideal to use either in bed while reading or resting or on the sofa. What I love about this, apart from the chunky modern corduroy material and fantastic choice of shades, is the fact that it even has a little pocket in one side which is handy for your phone or glasses etc.

This wedge pillow is another great choice and available in seven different but equally gorgeous shades. It also features a small side pocket and is available in a choice of three different sizes. With its soft 1.1lb microfibre filling, it is also an ideal choice for those who prefer a softer feel while still allowing your back to maintain its natural “S” shape and so providing you with good support.
This wedge pillow has a zipped removable cover too.

So, Will These Wedge Cushions Change Your Life?
Hugely? Of course not – they are just cushions – but sometimes it’s the little things that make a real difference.
If being able to sit up in bed or recline on the sofa without adding more stress and tension to your back and neck while you relax and read or watch a good film is for you, then yes! A good bed or back wedge cushion will make all the difference and with such a great choice of colors to brighten up your day, which one would you go for?
