Bath Pillows 101Bath pillows
are a bathroom essential for those who like to slip into a relaxing tub on a regular basis. A good bath pillow
increases your relaxation by offering a soft place to lay your head in an otherwise hard tub. They support your head and neck so you can enjoy your bath without feeling strained. As a bonus, they can spa style to your bath décor.
come in several different shapes, from a regular rectangle to an elongated shell. The larger shape will support more of your neck than the smaller ones, and is best if you suffer from neck pain.
Some types of pillows are filled with foam or other cushioning material. These will mold to your head, offering optimal support and comfort. Other bath pillows
are inflatable. These have the advantage of being easy to store when not adorning your tub.
If a pillow has a cover, it will usually be made of terry cloth and be removable for washing. Not all bath pillows
include a cover.
Suction cups are an important element to consider. They are what attach the pillow to your tub wall. The more suction cups it has, the better the grip and the more likely it is to stay put. Most models have between two and four suction cups.
In addition to the standard bath pillow
, you may be able to find one with a battery-operated massager inside.
