Therapeutic Positioning Body Pillow
Discover Total Body Comfort

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

Raising and harvesting kapok has the lowest environmental impact compared to any other fiber materials in use today, including plastic and cotton except for perhaps hemp. The trees are not cut down and do not require irrigation or any chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides. Not only is the kapok tree an important part of rainforest ecology, but it also plays a pivotal role in forest preservation efforts.

The emerging industry is beginning to stimulate local economies improving the lives of women and their families in rural areas (helping to stem migration to more densely populated urban areas).


Care Instructions

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.

Quality Pillow, but not for my back

The pillow itself appears to be of good quality, but both nights I used it I woke up with back pain that I'm still trying to resolve.

Marissa Duvall
Versatile and perfect size for a full-sized bed.

I just can't sleep without this wonderful, soft, fume-free body pillow. It doesn't collapse like a foam pillow would, can easily be fluffed up back into shape if needed, and it fits neatly under my regular pillows in the morning. It can be also used instead of a regular head pillow if you are a natural side sleeper. I use it to prop myself up while reading, napping....a very useful addition!

Deirdre MacAlpine
Looking forward to using it

Sorry, you won't ship to NZ so the pillow is patiently waiting for me in Hawaii.

Not Returnable products, waste time and money

Waste time and money. The Body Pillow was not at all what I expected. Called Customer Service, they said to return it but that I had to pay for return shipping. The shipping cost to return was more than the cost of the pillow plus their shipping costs to me.
