Imagine waking up the same position that you went to sleep in 8 hours before. There is no need for tossing and turning if you are properly supported by the Sleeping Bean. Soft and huggable, the cylindrical Bean is filled with premium recycled poly-fiber or (organic) kapok fiber, that molds to support your body. As you sleep, it effortlessly aligns your spine, reduces pain and muscle stress, and encourages healthy sleep positions.
The Original Sleeping Bean Body Pillow is the first and finest body pillow made. Its extra long (5.5 ft.) cylindrical shape was designed to conform naturally to the human body to allow sleeping in the healthiest possible position - the semi-fetal curl.
Recommended by Parenting Magazine - Jan 1997, the Sleeping Bean is a life saver for pregnant women trying to find a comfortable sleep position and can even help in the delivery room for labor positioning. And after delivery, the Sleeping Bean is a great aid to a nursing mother as she holds and feeds her baby.
Recommended by doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists whenever proper support can be beneficial for back problems, sleep disorders, post-operative recovery, geriatric care, pregnancy and nursing, and relief of both physical and emotional stress.
Children and Teens love the smaller Teen Bean (4.5 ft.). Works in the same way as the Adult Bean while additionally providing emotional comfort which can ward off the Boogie Man and make sleep easier.
All handcrafted in the U.S.A.
A few words about Kapok
In order to wash the body pillow, simply take the filling out, wash the cover, and replace the filling. If it is filled with kapok, be sure to remove the filling outdoors as kapok is very light and fluffy and will cause a mess indoors.
I purchased my bean body pillow over 12 years ago. I used it when I was pregnant with both of my children. My husband and I have used it when we have had issues with our backs and 11 year old daughter sleeps with it every night. It is amazing and has withstood the test of time. Now my son wants one of his own.....SO WORTH IT!!!!
Don’t have it yet

The pillow case is a bit of a process to get on and it tends to lose filling in the center (it kind of stays folded if that makes sense) but overall it's exactly what I was hoping for and also provides more comfy options than just the spooning option I was going for :) There's even a handy one-pager showing different ways to use it. I'm psyched that I was able to find something so reasonably priced in the eco-conscious space!
Great. Stuffed nice and full
I purchased a Body Bean almost 20 years ago for my massage therapy practice. I work with pregnant people, and I always get raves for this pillow. Even after 20 years, with frequent washings and 100’s of clients, it still is in great shape. I ordered another one to have a rotation, and I am not disappointed. It is still the best body pillow on the market.
