There are two types of sleepers in this world: those who can’t stand throw pillows and those who (as the Black Eyed Peas would say/sing) “just can’t get enough.” I’m a proud member of the latter group. I’ve been on a mission to bedeck my bed in accent pillows, but I simply wasn’t prepared for the 30,000 results that Amazon returned when I searched for the “best body pillows.” They’re not one-size-fits-all anymore, y’all. They now come in doughnut-form, C-shape, and a multitude of other forms.

At first, my inner monologue went something like: Ridiculous! What’s wrong with the original shape of human-like bedtime paraphernalia? What is this nonsense?! I’ve now warmed up to the idea though. After all, the horseshoe-shaped option could give a gal tantalizing polyamorous feels in bed. The one that looks like a semicolon basically counts as a second mattress. And don’t even get me started on the one with Steve Harrington’s sweet, sweet face on it. Sure, each body pillow is more extra than the next. But if you ask me, we all deserve to be a little extra in our pre-bed ritual.
