Do you tend to toss and turn all night and can’t seem to find a comfortable position for sleeping? A good body pillow which provides comfortable support can resolve your problems with insomnia or body aches and pains, and can become your best sleeping buddy!
Since body pillows come in so many shapes, varieties and sizes, it could be quite challenging when looking for the best one to fit your needs and provide you with the desired support and comfort.
To help you, we tested a variety of body pillows in the last couple of months, and we came up with our final verdict on the top 10 best body pillows you can buy in 2018.
Take a look at our top picks, and choose the best one for your sleeping style and specific needs.
We had no doubts when we picked the Snuggle-Pedic body pillow as our top choice for 2018, because it provides amazing comfort, support, and relief to the muscles and joints, and will allow you to sleep soundly as a baby.
This 20 x 54 inch full body pillow is filled with completely safe, shredded low VOC hypoallergenic Biogreen memory foam combined with CertiPUR foam. The foam is breathable and provides that unmatched cool pillow feeling we all love.
The patented Ultra-Luxurious Kool-Flow cover of the pillow is made of 43% bamboo viscose, 56.4% polyester and 0.6% Lycra and is soft, hypoallergenic and will keep you cool all night long.
The bulky pillow is about 7 lbs. and features a design which is especially targeted at conforming to the shape and contours of your body and providing orthopedic support.
It won’t change in shape over time and doesn’t need to be fluffed to stay soft.
Plus, if you are allergic to dust or have breathing problems or irritable skin and eyes, you don’t have to worry about this one, as it is completely hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant.
Probably the best feature we liked about the Snuggle-Pedic pillow is the fact that it is sold with a 120-night satisfaction guarantee, which allows you to test it for about 3 months, and if you are not completely happy with the product to return it and receive a full refund, no questions asked. The manufacturer also offers free customization of the pillow if for some reason you are not satisfied with its density and shape.
The pillow comes with a 20-year warranty which speaks a lot about just how confident the manufacturer is in the quality and durability of the pillow.
This excellent body pillow is especially suitable for side sleepers who can use some added support and comfort. It is also one of the top choices for those of you who are stomach sleepers, as well as for pregnant ladies.
Its large size means that you can still get all of the comfort and support you need even if you are tall and have a large body frame.
The Snuggle-Pedic pillow is machine washable, so you don’t need to be concerned about how you are going to keep it clean and sanitized.
If you want to order it online, you don’t have to worry about receiving a bulky package, as it is delivered vacuum sealed.
With the quality of the materials used for the filling and the cover, the amazing design, and the comfort it provides, along with the 120-night sleep guarantee and the 20-year warranty, the Snuggle-Pedic is most certainly the best body pillow on the market right now!
If you are picky about the density of your pillows, you will love this fully adjustable body pillow from Coop Home Goods. You can take out or add more of the memory foam via the nifty zipper on the side, in order to achieve that perfect density which you need for support, comfort, and for sound sleeping.
You can actually mold the pillow to fit your specific needs and sleeping style, so we can recommend this body pillow to back, side or stomach sleepers as well as for expectant women who can use that extra support and comfort during their pregnancy.
The Coop Home Goods pillow is the runner-up in our list and is the same size as our top pick the Snuggle Pedic – 20x 54 inches. It too is an excellent choice for people of all sizes.
It is filled with CertiPUR shredded, gel-infused memory foam. It’s removable, and machine washable cover is made of 60% polyester and 40% bamboo viscose rayon.
The filling and the cover provide excellent air ventilation and will help keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night.
If you suffer from dust allergies, asthma or eczema, you will feel a huge relief once you add this pillow to your bedding, as it is dust mite resistant and hypoallergenic.
The pillow weighs 9 lbs. and it is sold with a 100-day satisfaction guarantee by Coop Home Goods, so you can test this one as well, and if you are not happy with the results, you can return it without any hassle and get your money back.
The manufacturer also gives a 5-year warranty for the full body pillow.
Available at a reasonable price, sold with a 100-day satisfaction guarantee, 5-year warranty, and made of safe, hypoallergenic and adjustable filling and a removable cover, we can strongly recommend this large sized body pillow to just about anyone.
If you are looking for a budget-friendly full body pillow to use during your pregnancy, or simply for adding that extra support and comfort you need while you are sleeping, we suggest that you buy the Utopia Bedding 20 x 54 inch pillow which is our best budget choice for 2018.
As we already mentioned, this long pillow for side sleepers and pregnant women is very reasonably priced but is nevertheless an excellent pillow which will improve your comfort and sleep.
It fits the contours of the body and is large enough to provide the necessary support even for people with larger body frames.
The filling is made of ultra-soft 2000G Ball fiber, and the cover is made of 100% breathable, soft and durable cotton.
The cover has double stitched edges which will keep the Utopia pillow from tearing over time.
We can recommend this affordable body pillow for those of you looking for some added hip, shoulder, abdomen or back support. It is a great choice for those of you who prefer to sleep on your side or stomach.
Expectant moms will appreciate the added comfort and support they will get during the months when sleeping on the stomach becomes impossible, and finding a comfortable position in bed becomes a real challenge.
The pillow can safely be washed in a washing machine and tumble dried on a low setting, so you can make sure that it is nice and clean all the time without worrying about the pillow losing its fluffiness, softness, and shape.
We love how soft and well made this pillow is, as well as the fact that you can wash it and dry it as often as you want without too much hassle. The best part is that it is inexpensive, so you won’t need to spend a fortune to get that added comfort and full body support you are craving for every time you go to bed.

Features to watch out for when buying a body pillow
Body pillows come in a very wide variety of types, shapes, and sizes. In order to pick out the best one, you may want to look into the following features:

We have picked a variety of tube-shaped, U-shaped, C-shaped and other full body pillows for you to pick from.
The type of sleeper you are
The different designs of the body pillows are suitable for different sleeping preferences. As a whole, body pillows work best for stomach or side sleepers, but some models provide the comfort and support you need if you are a back sleeper too.
