To piggy back on this post. They also make a big pregnancy pillow in the shape of a 'C' I know I know..... pregnancy? It wraps around you. It is amazing. My youngest is 9 and I can't get rid of it. 🤣 There are lots out there but here is a link to give you the idea. https://www.amazon.com/PharMeDoc-Pregnancy-Pillow-Jersey-Shaped/dp/B01KIQH2VU
> I wouldn't mind one of those without it being covered in weeb.
Here you go.
They are sold under the name "Body Pillow" & contain not even a trace of weeb.
This so much.
Also, I don't know if you already have one or whatever, but what really helped my wife when she was pregnant was sleeping with a body pillow. If your wife doesn't have one already, get her one. She'll see that you two are soulmates. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Snuggle-Pedic-Ultra-Luxury-Combination-Breathable-Hypoallergenic/dp/B011U1LIK8/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_201_bs_tr_t_1/134-5846794-1290169?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=1D0S5MS6P97NFQ2WY3ZY
I got this one in May 2015 off amazon. It’s a little cheaper than the one you linked. Not sure if their quality has changed in 2.75 years, but mine is still holding up well and it’s appreciably longer than a standard body pillow and HEAVY as all get out. 10/10 would snuggle nightly
I ordered this inner pillow (when it was avalable and it was around $80 USD), and ordered the custom pillow case here (NSFW) which with shipping ended up being around $90 USD. I had to wait almost two months for the cover due to the printing process and shipping. Just got it today actually!
So grand total is about $170 USD, but that doesn't include the couple hours I spent designing it and figuring out what dimensions it had to be
Public Service Announce:
A&J finally release 'new' DHR6000
The Amazon product page also has been updated with more picture and badly translated product description in English.
I will probably buy one next month in case they change the shell fabric again (RIP combination development)
Love the Pharmedoc pregnancy pillow. I’m also a side sleeper with an arm under the pillow, and the C shaped pillow was perfect.
XMR is expensive to transact with, and much much more complicated to use. Dash is relatively more simple and cheaper to use but then the privacy is not as good. Further just because we don't see benefit in something doesn't mean the market won't find utility in it.
Have you ever seen an item on amazon that you thought was just so fucking stupid? https://www.amazon.com/Boyfriend-Pillow-Husband-Companion-Benefits/dp/B0046GK1AI
This is something we would not need, we couldn't imagine anyone seriously spending 40 bucks on this, but unicorn smasher estimates they are making 2k in sales a week for something that probably costs $5 to make. The market is a complex, moving and indescernable force of emergent phenomena. Just because you don't see a use or niche for dash, or that i can't define a solid use case, doesn't mean that it won't find and fill some void or need in the market.
I emailed the guys at SuToCorp at and used them as a proxy to get me the pillow.
However you could get the pillow on normal amazon but I was told I couldn't be sure as to it's authenticity.
I’ve got the c-shaped one, which now that I’m later in my third trimester it’s pretty essential to have a pillow with an “escape route” vs the u-shaped (but I think I would have liked the u-shaped more in 2nd trimester). But honestly, if I could give any advice I would just say don’t skimp on anything sleep related. Getting good sleep will be #1 for her for the foreseeable future! That being said, there are plenty of good pillows for affordable prices. She should try a few out!
I got this one.
I bought mine late second trimester with my son and wish I had gotten it earlier. Thanks for the reminder to break it out now! I have the PharMeDoc C-shaped pillow and love it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KIQH2VU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_FN14CMECJG0J878ZQTRW?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

For the pillow, recently Amazon jp has added international shipping for the 6000 https://www.amazon.co.jp/抱き枕本体-Jオリジナル-DHR6000-ハイクラス-160cm×50cm/dp/B00CFG0B3I
From what I hear it is cheaper than going through proxy.
Hello all! First reddit post here~
I just had some question(s) regarding inner pillows:
I bought a couple of covers on Amiami and was planning on buying either the DHR6000 or CMD9000 on Amazon JP, but I completely overlooked the fact these items can't be shipped to the U.S. I was looking at the alternatives of getting it through forwarding or proxy services, but I'd rather not have to go through all that extra hassle. ><
I did see that the DHR6000 and CMD9000 are on Amazon US as well. But from what I read on here, these are resellers and that they cost a bit more. If price weren't a factor for me, would it be ok to buy the inner pillows from Amazon US resellers? I guess legitimacy is the main concern for me and more just making sure that I'm getting the right product.
Links for reference:
I don't have this specific brand but shredded memory foam pillows are the best. I have a Snuggle-Pedic Shredded Memory Foam Body Pillow and it's the only pillow I've used for longer than 6 months. The difference is that a shredded memory foam pillow naturally contours your head and neck but also can be fluffed together and tall for side sleeping.
I shelled out and got the Snuggle-pedicbecause it was huge & had good memory foam & is made in the USA. My doctor said if I was having pain in my legs & hips to get a good body pillow and it worked, now I just have a hard time maneuvering when I get up to go pee in the night. I previously just used a knee pillow and that didn’t do the trick. But it’s great for resting/naps. I have never used a pregnancy pillow bc my doctor wasn’t too keen on them. They don’t give a lot of support. But if other people have used them and found success with them, by all means listen to everyone.
I recently got this one and legitimately look forward to going to bed all day (both because fatigue is real(!) but also because it’s just so cozy!)

You can get relatively inexpensive c-shaped pillow on Amazon if you want to test it out. The one I just replaced was about $30ish - this one . Might be a good starter pillow for you!
He can put up with it in special circumstances. He's just being a petty jerk.
Get a body pillow that he can cuddle until you get to bed for those few! nights a year when you're not up to going to bed early. And Amazon sells covers for those, you can personalize with custom photos.
This is the one I have. I love it. I had to buy a second one because my husband kept stealing it.
I love my c-shape pillow! https://smile.amazon.com/PharMeDoc-Pregnancy-Pillow-Jersey-Shaped/dp/B01KIQH2VU/ref=psdc_382727011_t1_B07J5SMJQJ
I’ve been happy with this so far! I am almost 24 weeks and have been using it since about week 10. Leachco Back 'N Belly Pregnancy/Maternity Contoured Body Pillow, Ivory https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002E7DIQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_yZncGbFPBGMY9?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I don’t know exactly what brand I have (it was a gift!)
But this one looks really similar. Having some pillow to support the belly and back made a world of difference.
First off, welcome to the hobby!
The vast majority of cases you'll find on amazon are bootlegs. amazon.jp apparently ships the DHR 6000 internationally now, but other than that most of the actual pillows on amazon are gonna be pretty low quality too. Really, recommending just about anything on amazon besides the DHR is against the rules of the board because just about all of it is bootlegs...
I will say from the experience of only getting started on this hobby a few months ago myself that bootlegs are not worth the money you save. Peachskin sucks as a daki cover material and the low quality pillows bootleggers sell are not only stuffed with VERY low quality plush, but the shells are pretty crappy too. They're either made of a crappy material or they'll start to come apart within a few months of regular use. The high entrance fee of getting a legit pillow and a legit cover may seem like a lot, but trust me when I say its worth it in the long run.
Amazon Japan ships it internationally now, just order there. Total price comes out to $162.53 shipped to the US. You can save a TINY bit of money by ordering from Amazon Japan and having it shipped to a forwarder like BigInJapan and choosing as economical a shipping method as possible, but you'll save like $15 and get your pillow in a month rather than 2 days.
What is the easiest way to get a DHR6000 shipped to America? I've looked into proxies but honestly I don't feel like going through the hassle of providing identification and all that. I checked Amazon.jp and it's weird because people here say that they offer international shipping on the DHR6000. But when I check it says it cannot be shipped to America. I'd rather just buy it from amazon america here:
https://www.amazon.com/Dakimakura-body-pillow-original-DHR6000/dp/B00CFG0B3I. It is more expensive but really I think it's not that much more compared to the shipping from japan. Is this amazon listing legit? If so I think I will just shell out the extra to get it from amazon and avoid the effort of going through a proxy.
EDIT: Thanks for all the answers guys.
They're sold through Amazon US now. No need for the proxy service.
As the others said, worth the price. The cheaper ones off ebay will get shitty after a while (usually it's the filler bunching or twisting weirdly and whatnot).
Amazon Japan to a forwarder, then shipping with FedEx which comes out to about 4,000 to 5,000 JPY shipping. Total would be roughly ~$120 give or take a bit.
I find it pricey when I compare it to Amazon.com, even considering the exchange rate. The last thing I was looking at was a Snoogle. $48.99 USD on Amazon.com. $89.99 CAD on Amazon.ca. $48.99 USD is only $62.47 CAD...like what the heck is that? I do like the Amazon reviews and bestseller lists - sometimes I look stuff up on there just for the reviews haha.
So I'm not going to find really bad quality ones on amazon or anything? I'll just buy off there. Seems easiest
What about this? Look good?
are you looking in physical shops or online? i can totally understand shops with limited physical inventory space not keen on stocking too many of these so maybe you had some bad luck and happened to swing by after what they had on hand were sold?
https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00CFG0B3I/ amazon still has it in stock
Several of the places that sell dakimakura, also sell the pillow. I've tended to buy the pillows off of Amazon after searching for ones that are the right size. I highly suggest not buying one of the body/maternity pillows from a home store because they all suck unless you actually find a decent one. The tend to go flat pretty fast.
Currently have: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011U1LIK8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
However, the pattern is thick on the pillow, it kind of shows throw the dakimakura.
I originally had this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BR1T142/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It is pretty nice, the problem is the down feathers occasionally poke through.
For imperial sizes get one that is 20x60in if it doesn't have cm listed.
I live in Germany, is ordering from the German amazon a valid option? https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00CFG0B3I/?coliid=I3IUM477ODSD99&colid=32QT9AVKY6Q31&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
Good day, I recently bought a daki cover 160x50cm for the first time, so now I was looking around for where to buy the inner pillow.
I live in the Philippines and it seems there isn't a pillow here that fits to the size of the daki cover (biggest I've seen so far is a 57x 20'' around 140 x 50 cm)
if I was going to buy something that needs to be shipped might as well go for the best quality since shipping would cost a lot. So looking around it seems most of the people are recommending the A&J DHR6000 one. I see it in Amazon.com for around $190 w/ free shipping. this one to be exact https://www.amazon.com/Dakimakura-body-pillow-original-DHR6000/dp/B00CFG0B3I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1533642860&sr=8-1&keywords=dakimakura+pillow+160x50
So I would like to ask about.. if I went off and use a fowarding/proxy site to buy the same item from japan would it cost cheaper or would still sum up to the same price?
I'm not really familiar with how amazon ships their products nor I know anything about proxy buying so I really don't have much information on it.
Here is the listing for the DHR6000 on Amazon which you can use to obtain it through a proxy (recommended for you as someone who is inexperienced with purchasing items from Japan) or a forwarder. Here is the link to it on Gate as well, same process.
From my personal experience it is cheaper to go through a proxy than to purchase via your local Amazon for a DHR6000. The margins that they have on the pillows they sell are much larger than the cut a proxy takes.
As a side note, you might want to look into what offers your bank has in regards to making payments in foreign currencies. As your charges will be in Yen you will get charged a currency conversion fee that would probobly be in the range of 3% or so. Your bank may have offers in place for people looking to make purchases in foreign currencies which could save you a little extra money in fees.
The cover is quite a nice piece of art, I would have picked one up myself if my budget was more generous.
Some people like to display their covers on walls in a manner similar to posters and wall scrolls. There are DIY magnet based setups that have been covered on the sub for display purposes that you could look into if intereseted.
In regards to that pillow I would advise against it due to the size difference. The lacking ~8cm will make the cover look daggy on the pillow and based on the weight I don't think it would be all that great. If you are in the US this would be your best bet at a cheap but still decent inner. People have had some complaints about it compared to other pillows as detailed in my guide but its still going to be better than the other cheap options on Amazon.
Sorry about the confusion with CO, I accidentally typed inner instead of cover. What I was intending to say was that you can buy a blank cover from there and fill it with polyfill to make a DIY inner. If you want to just stuff the polyfill directly into the actual inner that is also an option.
I have made some other posts in this tread regarding taking care of your cover to avoid unintended damages. Its mostly covering personal grooming but I would say to check it out if you are planning to use the cover and are afraid of damaging it. I know that my first cover took quite a beating because I was not quite aware what was causing damage to my cover.
not sure if any store stocks it. these things take up a lot of space reserved for higher earning items that take up less space. your best bet is to buy it on amazon and send it to your hotel or local convenience store. might have to shell out for prime or pay for quick shipping, depending on your schedule.
I got this pillow off amazon and it’s been great for sleeping and sitting
Edit: I swing the bottom part up and make a little cushion for me to sit in. I just realized the photos don’t really show that as an example. But you can do a lot with it
I bought the Leachco back ‘n belly pillow thru Amazon. I love it! You can wash the pillow case. It’s firm enough that I don’t need a pillow under my head if I don’t want. I highly recommend.
Leachco Back 'N Belly Pregnancy/Maternity Contoured Body Pillow, Ivory https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002E7DIQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_IylIFbA2B5087
I bought this one off amazon based on the amazon reviews and reviews from my friends. I have no complaints so far but right now it is mostly supporting my massive boobs. I am about 5'8 and it is plenty big for me!
before being pregnant I had switched to sleeping on my back from my side from shoulder pain (ugh the irony am I right?). Relearning to sleep on my side was killing my shoulders again so I broke and got a pregnancy pillowto see if it would help. OH. MY. GAH. Worth every penny! I have a regular pillow placed under the pregnancy pillow (to get proper support for my neck) and tuck my arm through the gap between the pillows and there's a significant reduction of stress on my shoulder joint.
Is this CMD9000 listing legit? I see other people saying that it should be only around $20 cheaper than the DHR6000, but this is on amazon for less than half the price, with free shipping.
Been looking for a high quality Inner Pillow and decided on the DHR6000, but the only site I see for sale is this amazon link.
Seeing that in the comments itself it says it's imported from China gives me second thoughts.
Anyone know if this is legitimate? or where you can buy pillows directly from A&J if that's at all possible?
As a side sleeper, changing to a c shaped pregnancy pillow. The curved shape means you can support your head without scrunching your shoulder weird. It hasn’t stopped my migraines but I haven’t woken up with a massive crick in my neck that makes everything worse since switching
My fiancé got my that pillow when I found out I was pregnant. I’m 34 weeks and have slept with it every night. I was a stomach sleeper before getting pregnant and that pillow actually keeps me sleeping on my side
How much difference is a dakimakura (DHR7000/DakimakuriKumochi) to a regular memoryfoam body pillow
Looking for something super comfy to hug/sink into. Does dakimakuras filling need to be replaced over time as it flattens?
I hear Comodos are very good.
So I hear...
i just got my pregnancy pillow in today and it’s super comfy. i like a lot of pillows when i sleep, anyways so it works for me.
i’m not sure about the chemical thing, though. i have not heard of that. here’s the link to the one i bought on amazon: The CeeCee Pillow by PharMeDoc Pregnancy Pillow C-Shape Full Body Maternity Pillow (Grey Jersey Cover)- Support for Back, Hips, Legs, Belly a Pregnancy Must Haves, Maternity Pillows for Sleeping https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KIQH2VU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_3B2D1M5FKMZ2RNPGGP1N?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

We didn’t have the room in our bed for a full-size maternity pillow, so I went with this one:
It’s firm and very heavy for a pillow. I have to put some effort in to kick it off the bed to be able to get out of bed on my own without rolling over it. If you have the space, one on either side would probably immobilize you.
I tried the c-shape ones (e.g. snoogle), and it wasn’t enough, and then got this one used from another mom and it made a huge difference: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002E7DIQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_CY6ZSNERV7PG11RNG66D

I am new to the hobby - I found a couple covers I really like (one official and one from mandarake) and got them through DHL.
The problem is the inner. After reading the comprehensive guide and various comments, and figuring out that getting a DHR would be both very expensive and a hassle, I ordered a Dakimakuri a couple weeks ago. The problem is that with the current shipping situation, it will likely take some months before I get it...
Now turns out that Amazon Canada actually has the Comodo in stock. My understanding is that this should be the same Comodo pillow mentioned in the comprehensive guide, correct?
For the moment I hanged my covers using the suggested magnet method, I am looking at them... and I am not sure I can resist three months within an inner - when I could get the Comodo in 2 days. I understand that it will not be as "huggable" as the Kuri, but my thinking is: when I finally get the Kuri, I can switch to it as my "hug to bed" pillow and instead use the Comodo for displaying purposes. I mean, knowing myself I doubt I will stop at two covers... Would this be a reasonable plan?
This is the one I have. I sleep with it a kind of odd way and I also use a smaller pillow sometimes for my calves. The hardest thing for me is usually getting a pillow to support my ribs and I can pull up the end of the bottom and tuck it under.

I'm laughing at your co-worker saying you can come back in a week.
I had a laparoscopic hysterectomy and unexpected endometriosis. G-d bless my surgeon, 'cos I was on the table for eleven hours while he removed my uterus and scraped out all the endo crap.
Not only do you have to recover from getting a whole ass organ removed and manipulation or your innards (they blow air in your belly to expand it and give the doctor room to work), your vagina is gonna be paper dry from not being moisturized (peeing hurt when I finally got to do it), you're going to be gassy for a while, and being on the table that long gave me a brick sized area on my backside that was numb for days. Oh, and I ended up staying in the hospital for extra days because I needed plasma and two blood bags. It was horrible because of the back issue and it took my next week visit before he gave me some much needed muscle relaxers in addition to the pain medication,
I mean, your version might vary. My BFF had a similar procedure done(no endo, though) and was home the next day, stoned on Percocet and watching bad television. But in both our cases, we weren't cleared to drive for a couple of weeks at least.
I was out for a month. Fortunately, I never had to deal with stairs, only elevators.
BTW, I found using a body pillow awesome for cradling my sore belly and it was heavy enough to hold on to if I wanted to turn from side to side. My mom made me drink a lot of carbonated drinks for the first couple of days to help me get out all the gas, so practice belching out the alphabet! ;-) A friend came over and helped me cook and otherwise do food prep. And you might want to look into one of the pillow wedges to you can sit up in bed or an inflatable wedge that goes under the mattress (Mattress Genie is one of them).
I wish you well.
I really like the Snoogle! I liked it with each pregnancy - but there might be better ones out there these days.
This is the one I have from 2018 (but I had the same one in 2014 but gave to a friend back in the day) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000635WI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Highly recommend the car pillow from Pink Pepper. I got the car pillow and the two hearts that I parked under my arms to reduce pressure.
This body pillow has been amazing. I’m 5 weeks out and still using it. It’s good for sleeping or for “reclining” and watching tv. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002E7DIQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&th=1
Treat yoself anyway! My kiddo is also my OAD and is 2.5 and this is actually my 2nd pregnancy pillow. I found that it helped my sciatica flare-ups tremendously. I use this one and have also bought one for my sister and a good friend in addition to the two that I’ve bought for myself!!
I think I would’ve not liked a u-shaped one at all due to the lack of flexibility, but I have loved this one sided full body pillow that isn’t marketed as a pregnancy pillow. I still had a little hip pain but nowhere near what I had before I got the pillow, I think it made a big difference to be able to support my knees, ankles and boobs at the same time. But I really didn’t want my head forced onto to the same pillow and I didn’t like the curves of the u-shaped ones. I’ll keep using this one after pregnancy and it’s my new favorite item.

My wife loved this, and as a very miserable pregnant lady I consider her an authority on finding ways to make herself comfortable
This might sound kooky, but I wonder if a pregnancy pillow might be helpful for you in sleeping on your side? My kid is 2 years old and I still use mine because of how well it helps me with my sciatica when it flares up. I plan on using it for sure after my surgery next month to give me extra support while sleeping on my side! I have this one.

Yes!!!! I first noticed it around the same time as you in the middle of the night when I would need to turn over to get out of bed to pee. Extremely uncomfortable and has gotten better over the weeks (37 weeks this sunday). I just move a little slower now so not to get that jarring feeling. I find that if I sleep on my right side I get pretty bad heartburn but my stomach doesn't feel as heavy. If I sleep on my left side, no heartburn but my stomach is so heavy. I assume it has to do with baby girls position in the womb and most nights I just switch back and forth or prop one side up with a small pillow and sleep on my back (at a slight angle). It's a struggle but you will find what works.
Pregnancy pillows for me have been a god send!
I recommend this one:
And highly recommend this one:
It is so perfect to wedge under your growing belly and can be adjusted since it velcros together. I usually keep it apart and put one half under my belly and the other half wedged in my back..then I use the big C pillow to go under my head and in between my legs.
I have found the bigger i get the more pillows I need to get comfy lol, hope this all helps!
I didn't like mine until I was around 22ish weeks, it felt uncomfortable to me as a belly sleeper. Now I can't sleep without it. I have this one:
I'm new to Dakimakuras in general and have been searching for a decent quality pillow. I don't want to pay more than 100 dollars so is this a good buy? And how does it compare to that A&J DHR 6000?
Sorry put the wrong link first time:

Leachco Back 'N Belly... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002E7DIQ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
This is the one I use. I think it’s thick. I actually had to get used to it a bit because my pillows are usually thinner. I absolutely love it after the adjustment period
I'm a back sleeper as well but noticed this week that I've been naturally going to my side now. I ordered this one from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002E7DIQ/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 but based on how I've been self-correcting, I might not even need it!
Ok so I have bought a cover via ZenMarket, now I need to get the pillow I have several options:
Would love to see what you guys prefer in this. I like firm pillow but I want to still be able to breathe when I faceplant to the pillow.
I just ordered mine last night, at 10+0. I have a messed up hip to begin with, so I've wanted an excuse to get a special pillow for a while now. I got the brand that my other pregnant friend's OB suggested. PharMeDoc - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KIQH2VU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
They have a U shaped one too.
I LOVE mine. I got it back when I was 18-20 weeks and I cant sleep without it. It does wonders to help with everything from leg cramps to hip pains. Its amazing. I got this one - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KIQH2VU?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
It may be huge but it's so worth it. Especially if your a pillow cuddler like I am ☺
If you don’t mind it being huge, I love the pharmedoc c shaped maternity pillow. I prefer it to u shaped because you still get support everywhere you need it, but it’s easier to get out of at night. You can get it for about 50 dollars in the us and it is very worth it.

Is the base for mine, I recommend a nice cool sheet material cover/pillowcase, even though the bamboo fiber one is removable we all know the cool side of the pillow is better
There's a website that is a review aggregator for sleep products called SleepLikeTheDead, you can use it to review different brands of sleep stuff, for body pillows they have this:

My MIL got me this pillow for Christmas & honestly i love it . It’s so comfortable even my husband has occasionally slept on it . Lol
I’ve had this for just over a month now it’s been pretty great! It’s significantly helped me to stop sleeping on my back (since it’s unsafe later in pregnancy). I’m 23+3 and I find it provides good support. When I’m not in bed my partner uses it and loves it also haha. I haven’t noticed it’s gone flat or anything like that, but again, I’ve only had it for a short time.
I got the leeches snoogle before I was pregnant, to help with my back and SI joint pain, and still using it during my pregnancy. Best purchase ever.
I have not given my pregnancy pillow up since my first pregnancy back in 2017.
Hubby got annoyed but I just explained we needed to size up from a Queen to a king CAUSE I WASNT LETTING THIS BAD BOY GO. EVER. 10/10 do recommend.
Thank me later :P

If you're looking for pregnancy pillow recommendations, we bought this one and my wife says it's helped a lot. She used to be a back sleeper but is now sleeping on her side, and this pillow helps with that. She says it doesn't take away all of the hip pain but it makes things tolerable.
Okay hear me out. This pregnancy pillow from amazon is the best thing that ever existed.
If you're looking for something more traditional and firm then this is a good option also but it's pricier.
get one of these
Hi! I was able to sleep on my stomach until around 20 weeks, but it was impossible after that. I used this pillow from weeks 20-birth and it was AMAZING for me, a precious stomach-only sleeper

I was having this starting around 7 weeks. Sleeping on my sides felt unbearable because my hips kept hurting so bad. Sleeping with a pillow between my legs helped a bit. I bought a pregnancy pillow and it’s been great... hip pain is mostly gone now (though I do have to rotate sides like hourly while sleeping still)
This is the one i got. It’s on sale for $20 right now.

I have one I bought on Amazon. The nice thing too is it holds on to warmth so even when I get up and come back to bed it is still warm and nice to cuddle up to...
A good pillow I am using is Amazon DHR6000. Its very soft but still close to the word flat.
This is what I got - I lucked out because it works, but I expected to play Princess and the Pea (like I do with most pillows). https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0000635WI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_4VWMFbJPTG172?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Your link looks comfy as HELL! Except I'm sweating just thinking about sleeping in it 😫
The best place to find the DHR pillows is amazon jp. You'll need a proxy to order it. Unfortunately, I don't know any respectable alternatives for Europe. Any chance anyone else can add anything?
Edit : ok nvm I'm stupid xd
The pillow's sold out tho. Anyone out there knows how the proxy deals with that ? Does it order as soon as it's back or just reject everything and you have to wait till it's back to get the proxy to buy it ?
From what I understood there's another company than amazon which also sells that pillow so I guess it's ok, just wanna be sure
I believe Buyee is pretty cheap if you get your DHR on amazon. I'm planning to get one myself and I'll probably use Buyee since they're absurdly cheap compared to other proxies I've found so far.
The best pillow is the DHR-6000, and from what I understand amazon jp ships it internationally now. Some good sides for covers are Cuddly Octopus and BWStore, linked to the right. Evening Call is alright too, but from what I've heard they can be a massive pain to deal with. ACHobby is pretty highly regarded here too. For ordering from them internationally without a proxy (they're based in Hong Kong), you have to contact the owner. Just search the thread for "alkie" if you're interested, I'm pretty sure I've posted how to contact him a few times just this month.
So ... Ill just recommend the DHR6000 again? : P Amazon supossedly does international shipping these days or you can get it on Gate with use of a proxy.
Regarding the stretching it should be fine. If you are still woried it has a zipper and just remove a little filling. It is recommended to just get a 160 cm pillow as you can remove filling to make it fit a 150 cm cover but not the other way around.
Is this the legendary DHR6000 I hear so much about or is this a knockoff? I'm still new to this so I'm not entirely sure.
I also hear that amazon jp ships internationally but I havent found anything to prove that.
