I've had this bedrest for 2 months now and am sorry to report that the stitching of the seams is very poorly done and just isn't holding up over time. While I don't use this backrest every single night, when I do use it I tend to use it for extended periods of time (2 to 4 hours). There are holes starting in the stitching where the arms meet the back of the pillow and the "handle" is basically unusable unless you want to risk tearing it off completely. The pillow is is fairly heavy and none of the seaming seems to have been reinforced to accommodate its intended use. I have downgraded my review as a result of these holes forming in the seams. While I only paid about $20 for this item I still feel let down as I think that getting only 2 months of use out of it before it started falling part is a little ridiculous. I have not downgraded it to a 1 because it is attractive, the fabric is soft and the pocket is a good idea. It would be pretty sitting on a bed that doesn't get used often - like a guest room. (Also, my cat likes it.) My original review follows.

________________

I read a lot in bed and purchased this bed rest in hopes that it would help eliminate back fatigue. It provides nice solid support for my back though I often need to wedge a pillow behind my head for better neck support during extended use. Otherwise, I find myself slouching and scooting down the bed and using it as an over sized pillow instead. The handle is not stitched on very well and I try not to use it much - it won't take much to rip it off as the backrest is fairly heavy. I also find myself wishing that the "arms" were a little bit bigger to better support my elbow as I often notice that I have bunched up my blanket under my arm to support it while I'm reading.

I just received the sandstone colored pillow the other day. So far, so good. The faux suede feels nice. It has a convenient little side pocket on the right arm that my iPhone fits into perfectly. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because although the top handle is securely stiched, I can see a possibility of the fabric tearing at the seam if you're not careful or lug the pillow around a lot. Besides that, it is comfy and I am really pleased.

I had to return this item, due to its strong, rather unpleasant odor. I noticed it right away, after taking it out of the plastic bag it came in. So I set it outside in the sun for 2 days, thinking that would help. Nope. Had it in my bedroom on the third day, with the door closed and when I came home that night, the whole room had a distinctly chemical smell. Not super strong, mind you. But definitely there and definitely not something I'd want to be leaning against on a nightly basis. I'm just glad it wasn't a couch or something that would have been an even bigger hassle to return.

This is a comfortable bedrest pillow. Adds cushion to my futon and is easy to sleep with. Also adds support to the back when used as a reading pillow.

This item looks nice, but does not hold up. In a few weeks of use, it has lost much of its shape and firmness

I've had this a little over a month, it stained the area of my wall behind my bed that it was against. My sheets are the same color as the pillow so I can't confirm if it also stained the sheets. Also, its product information tag didn't include ideal washing conditions.

This bed rest is attractive enough for the price paid, but I was disappointed in that the fabric appears to be a passable microfiber material, but hardly what I know as faux suede. I also don't find it comfortable to lean on - it's too hard and doesn't have a curve which fits the spine. Maybe it needs to be broken in, I don't know, but it now sits in the corner. As others have noted, the handle is much too flimsy for the weight of the item, and will rip off soon enough if it is not carried with some support on the underside.

I love my bed rest. Don't care too much that it's made of suede because I wrap it in an extra sheet to keep it from getting dirty. It's worth noting that the cover is non-removable so stains and smells are pretty much stuck unless you want to go through a lot of hassle to wash and heat dry it.

Other than that, it's pretty much a standard bedrest. No pockets or extras, save a handle on top..BUT, there's no better upgrade to your TV watching, gaming, and laptop using comfort if you're a bed potato than this! No more annoying stiff neck and back because of a marathon MW2 or Amazon review-writing session!

Got it for a Jackson all in, not bad.

I have had this backrest for about 6 weeks, and the other day I removed it from my bed to change sheets. To my horror, the "Mulberry" color had RUBBED OFF on my beige headboard! Now I will have to re-cover the headboard or get a new one! I would suggest that if you are buying this backrest, you get a neutral color!

This review is pretty straight forward. After all, we are talking about a pillow.

This backrest pillow comes in very nice color selections, which means you are bound to find a color you will like, if you wish to match it up with your bed.

This bedrest pillow is firm enough to support your back while in bed- yet not so stiff as to be uncomfortable.

It has handle at the top of the pillow, which makes it easy to transport to another room.

The company is offering a practical price, for a practical product.

For anyone looking for a little bit more in support for their back while reading,watching tv or using a laptop in bed, this pillow should do the job.

The quality of appearance is pleasing.

I, personally think the Faux Suede option is nicer than a basic fabric covering.

It lends a bit of class and the pillow does not look like the usual blah type bedrest pillows that we see in so many discount stores.

Overall: Comfortable- nice color selection( at least when I purchased it), the fake suede option lends a touch of class(but that is just my opinion)-and lastly, the price of about 20 bucks makes it a worthwhile, inexpensive investment for a back support.

Btw- This pillow was delivered to me faster than estimated so that was another plus.
