Oh I got this. lol. I have traveled pretty extensively both for work and fun so here's what I bring for work:

 

Luggage: 1 carry on hardside + 1 backpack as the "personal item" instead of a purse.

 


  • side notes on luggage and what I use: I am a big fan of the samsonite 4 wheel carbonites because they're pretty sturdy and I always choose the one with built in locks. My preferred luggage is always going to have a built in lock, 4 wheels and be a hardside. But hardside isn't for everyone...some prefer soft but I like the expandable hardsides.

    If you have the money, I'd invest in Tumi...seriously...the best. A family member who used to have to travel every other week for work bought a Tumi and it has been going strong for 15+ yrs. No joke. My samsonite though has held up very well for well over several dozen trips so it's totally up to you.


    My backpack of choice is a lesportsac. It's got 3 external pockets and a drawstring and flap over that buckles. It has 3 internal mesh pockets and a zippered pocket inside. I like to shove my purse and stuff in this backpack.


    For business, I try to have a nice sized clutch that will fit phone, wallet and obvs enough room for business cards. I like an envelope style clutch because they can fit a lot of stuff but compress down very nicely at the bottom of my backpack. I also have a very padded laptop case that I store in my backpack. If you want to get a backpack that is a laptop backpack, that is fine too! And some people even prefer it but I personally don't because I use my backpack for fun too. They make backpacks with removable laptop sleeves, so you could also look into that.

    This one is an extra but I also have a makeup train case because I refuse to go anywhere without my arsenal. That gets tucked securely between all my clothes in my hardside but of course, if you don't wear much makeup this is totally optional and you can just get away with a cosmetics bag in your backpack.

     

  • Packing wise? I roll my suits and shirts and make sure to stuff socks/hose into the shoulders so when I roll, I'm not messing up the pads. I always make sure to bring at least 2 dust bags to throw my shoes into. I bring 1 pair of black heels because black is timeless and sexy and on the plane, I will wear a pair of practical walking flats also in black or nude. I put my hose/socks into my heels and I pack those first. Then I start placing my rolled clothes around the heels (make sure the heels are in the dust bag...no dirt on clothes please!) Packing cubes are fantastic and if you can afford to get some, I'd look into it. Stick to neutrals that you can re-use if necessary with no one being the wiser (ie: white camisoles, black slacks, jeans) that way you don't have to bring a shit ton and you can just mix and match. I like to have a big blanket scarf because it can double as a blanket on the plane and is super chic for fall/winter. Anywho, rolling is your best friend as well as the Downy Wrinkle Releaser. The moment you get into your hotel, hang up the items you know need to be perfect looking like the suit and your work dresses and spray the de wrinkle spray on the ASAP.

     

  • Tips for US TSA: I like to have my liquids in the baggie in my backpack so that it's a quick removal and I'm not rifling through my luggage to pull them out. I also wear tight fitting clothes like yoga pants and a form fitting long sleeve shirt because the TSA agents can pretty much just look at you and know that there's nothing on you and I found they don't get all up in your business as much. Also, if you're wearing a sweater/jacket/scarf make sure those come off and go in the bin. I make sure that unless I absolutely have to wear something else that the shoes I wear are really easy to remove like flats. Remember to remove your laptop from the sleeve and have it go into its own bin! It's not enough to just take the laptop bag out. You gotta take that bad boy out of the sleeve so it's visible and in its own bin.

     

  • Extras: Invest in a really really good travel pillow immediately. Seriously. The ones they give you on the plane are shit. And remember what I just said about blanket scarf? Yea...the blankets they give you on the plane suck too. My favorite travel pillow is the TravelRest. It's stupid looking but very compact (it's inflatable) and comfortable AF. Also, don't waste space on over the head earphones unless you are a major audiophile. A good pair of tiny apple buds are more than enough for your music/movie needs.

     

    If you are flying nonstop, I see no issue in checking your carry on bag if you are inclined but just make sure to factor in like 30+ min for pickup because it can take some time to get your luggage depending on what airport you're at and the size of your flight. If I know I need to be somewhere ASAP, I just stow everything in the overhead bin.

     

    I think that's everything but who knows...I'm probably missing something lol. And obviously this is just what I would do. You don't have to listen to this at all. lolol
u/KvetchBetch · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

OK, this post is going to look like a series of ads but I promise that neither me nor anyone I know works for these companies; these are just products I love and wouldn't fly without.

Carry-on items: generally you're allowed one carry-on bag and one "personal item" (generally a non-luggage bag) so I always travel with a laptop backpack as my main carry-on and a big, soft, zippered tote as my personal item. I used to have this travel bag with a zillion pockets but it got to be such a pain trying to remember which pocket had which item it got stupid. Now with a big tote, I can just drag it out from under the seat, open it wide, and pull out one of the...

Packing cubes: Godsend. I buy them from ebags in various sizes, using the big ones for clothing in the pack, and the little ones in my tote. I use different colored ones in the tote for different things. Green for snacks, red for electronics, and blue for comfort items. Since all the small, easily jumbled items are in smaller bags, they're less likely to get lost in the bottom of my big bag. I try to keep my electronics cube better organized by using...

Gear ties: these are like durable, reusable twist ties for things like cords, cables, handfuls of hair elastics, anything you want to keep bundled up and untangled. When I want to use something like my earbuds or a charging cable, I just twist the tie around my tote handle so it won't get lost. Some of the items also in my electronics cube are:

Plug adapter (international travel, I have one for every country I'm hitting, even if it's just an airport stop - one 14-hour stranding in the Hong Kong airport overnight taught me that lesson.)

Compact multi-outlet power strip which can make you new best friends in airports and make the stupidly-configured power outlets in hotel rooms actually workable.

Four-port USB charger: one of these means I only need one outlet to charge my phone, tablet, e-book, and my...

Portable power bank: nothing sucks more than a long flight when all your electronic entertainment doodads have run out of juice. My power bank can charge my phone fully 3+ times and is about the same size as the phone itself.

Onto the comfort items! Some of them go into a packing cube in my tote, others are larger so they're separate.

Disinfecting wipes: I like these because they're individually wrapped and good for both hands and surfaces. First thing I do when I get onto a germ-factory airplane is wipe down my armrests and tray table. Also great for public restrooms when you find out there's no soap.

Filtering water bottle: in many cities around the world, airport bottled water is crazy expensive, and water bottle filling station water is, in a word, nasty. I can attach this bottle to my tote with a carabiner and the filter makes most municipal water taste at least halfway decent.

Travel pillow: personal preference but this one is my favorite. My husband prefers a memory foam donut one but I find it heavy and bulky and not supportive in the right way. The Travelrest rolls up to a compact shape and inflates in seconds.

Soft, layered clothing: I wear yoga pants, a sports bra, a t-shirt, a light drape cardigan and slip-on shoes. The only thing remotely binding I wear is...

Light compression socks: actually my pair is just a regular pair of knee socks in the Nordstrom house brand that I keep snug by only wearing them for flights and handwashing them so they don't lose their elasticity. No matter how often I get up and move around during a long flight I'll get puffy ankles if I don't wear snug socks. Over those, once I'm in my seat I put on...

Fuzzy slipper socks. My feet freeze on planes but I don't like wearing my shoes for that long. Even though I don't think my shoes smell, if I get the stinkeye from a neighbor, I put my shoes into a plastic bag, otherwise I can usually get them off and hide them under the seat in front of me before my seat mates arrive to my row. Because I get so cold on flights I also wear/carry a...

Pashmina or other large scarf: works as a fashion accessory, blanket, pillow, and a don't-talk-to-me barrier when worn like a hood. Also covers up that spot where you spilled your coffee on yourself because you had to be at the airport at 5:30 a.m.

Sleeping mask: slap one of these on, engage your (preferably noise-canceling) headphones, lean into your travel pillow, cuddle up under your scarf and try to forget you're rocketing 35K feet over the planet in a big metal tube.

Single-use toothbrushes: I love those little Wisp toothbrush things - I usually keep them in my handbag or work desk for those oh-shit-here-comes-the-CEO-and-I-just-had-a-grande-latte moments, but they're also great for a little freshening up on a plane or in an airport without needing to get out your actual toiletries.

Moisturizers: because plane air is so drying this includes travel-sized lotion, face moisturizer, and lip balm. So much lip balm. I like Aquaphor myself.

Snacks: be nice to your fellow travelers and keep your snacks non-smelly, quiet especially if it's an overnight flight, and not too messy. I like to bring things like clementines, Babybel cheese, trail mix, chocolate covered nuts, or granola bars. Gum is good for takeoffs and landings. If you're prone to motion sickness, candied ginger is great.

Have a comfortable flight!

u/solacespecs · 16 pointsr/tifu

Hi there. I just went to Korea over the summer with my wife! Unfortunately we ended up on separate flights because we left/returned on separate days.

Not sure how much your husband has traveled before. I was absolutely DREADING the flight (4 hours to San Fran then 12 to Seoul for me) but I actually had a wonderful time and the trip itself went great.

Some tips:

    1. Go to Walgreens and pick up some Meclizine. It's for motion sickness and is available over the counter. It's like Dramamine and definitely can knock you out, but I never felt like it caused me to drag like Dramamine did once I woke up. Both flights this knocked me out for a good 3-4 hours.

    1. Go to Amazon and grab a comfy neck pillow. I got this one. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06WWFYCSG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    1. My flight had plugs but I also picked up this cheap battery in case my headphones died. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005X1Y7I2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    1. Get an Audible subscription. The first month is free so you can cancel. I recommend Red Rising. It's a good one and it occupied a lot of my time to listen to.

    1. Get a cheap surfacebook and buy Civilization 5 or 6. This alone took up a ton of my time.

    1. The flight showed good movies to take up some time. I recommend downloading the flight app BEFORE you board. My flight showed Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and a couple other good ones on the main screen, but you also have the option of a netflix-esque list of movies and shows on your phone/tablet.

    1. The food was absolutely terrific (for a flight meal). Hot and delicious. My flight had a baked chicken dish with rice and steamed carrots. Was really tasty. They actually served us 2 hot meals and 2 snacks. Besides these, definitely consider grabbing some snacks. I like simple peanut butter crackers.

    1. On that note, every time you are offered water, TAKE IT. It'll give you a good reason to move around and go to the bathroom. If you can find times to stretch your legs, go for it. And it has the added benefit of helping to avoid blood clots.

    1. If all else fails, my flight had free beer + wine. That alone should help him manage!

      Shouldn't be too bad overall. Like I said, I was so dreading the experience and actually my flight overall went super well. I'm totally open to it now in the future, where before I thought I would do this one trip and not fly so far again for a few years.

      Good luck!
u/nutmegtell · 2 pointsr/popping

Gosh, I'm so sorry. If it really is a pilonidal cyst, you need to have the whole area removed. They should have taken the whole thing out the first time. If it is a PC, the recovery may be uncomfortable for a few months, but if you don't take care of it now it will get more painful, and can become infected causing more painful and expensive surgeries.

Here's my free advice (lengthy but worth every penny lol)

-Make sure your surgeon understands what they are talking about, and are current with what these cysts are and treatment. Don't be afraid to get a second opinion. Ask about the length of hospital stay and post op wound care. If they want to suture it closed, get out of there. That's a good way to have a reoccurrence and infection. Which I'm guessing you don't want.

-The wound is basically like taking an ice cream scoop out of your back. It may go to the bone. It will need to be left open and will heal from the inside out. Your body will create 'granular tissue' that fills it in. In a couple of months, skin will grow to cover it. You will NOT have a lasting scar at all!

-They may offer you either 'packing' or a wound Vac. Go for the Wound Vac. It gently pulls your tissue up, and in recent studies it's been shown that the wound will heal the granular tissue faster and with less pain and trauma to that area. They will have them at the hospital, and will give you a portable one for at home. My daughter carried it in a backpack so it wasn't really noticeable. But it does make a farting sound every so often. Not awesome for a 14 y/o shy freshman :/ )

-My husband had his wound packed with gauze (back in 1983). He had to have his mom change it twice a day for 6 weeks. If this is your only option make sure you get strong pain meds. I suggest for the first month or two go to the wound care clinic and have them do it.

While at the hospital:

-Get as much information as you can. Bring someone who can be your advocate. Obviously, in our case, as her mom that was me. It has to be someone who has a cool head and can listen to the care team to process what they are saying to help you. If you don't have a person to help, keep some note cards or a journal next to you and write down all of your questions as they come to you. Make sure they are answered in a way you understand. Don't be afraid to ask more than once or twice. My thoughts on hospital staff- If you're nice, ask the nurses about their families and don't yell at them you'll get much better care. Be assertive but not aggressive.

-Take any and all pain meds you need. It might start with (most likely) morphine, but they have everything available. Don't be afraid to ask. If you have a history of abuse, they can help monitor so you don't get on fragile ground. They gave my daughter an rx for morphine patches, Vicodin and Xanax for wound changes. Because they caused her severe pain but also anxiety. She never needed the patches and she stopped needing the others after two months. She takes a Tylenol or Motrin every few weeks now. Her granular tissue is healed, her skin is getting thicker, but it's still a bit tender.

Post surgery:
You won't be able to sit on your bottom or lie on your back for a few weeks. Get this body pillow - called the Snoogle was recommended by her Physical Therapist while in the hospital. You could get one now, it might help release the pain in your lower back before surgery. It was VERY helpful and worth the trip to the baby store on the way home. These inflatable waffle pads are also great for when you can lay on your back without putting pressure on the coccyx -- and far better than the inflatable doughnuts they give to some people.

You won't be able to get it wet, so get some dry spray shampoo, and you can use these disposable wash cloths to bathe yourself as needed. Showering wasn't too hard, the wound Vac is sealed and I just set it outside the shower while she was in it. Once she was done with the wound Vac and able to shower again the wound care team recommended this tea tree body wash from Trader Joe's .

I have a list of post op necessities, I can post if want (even more) information lol. I figure knowledge is power, so if you go in knowing what you want, what to ask about, and knowing what's coming up, you'll feel more in charge and have control/agency over your own care.

Best of luck, let me know how it goes! Maybe it's not this at all :) 🤞

u/Treb27 · 0 pointsr/hearthstone

Not knowing you or your gf or your price range, it will be kind of difficult to make perfect suggestions, but I'll give you a few that I have gotten mine, or she has gotten me that worked out to be really good:

Serious stuff:

Kindle - You say she is a genius, so maybe she likes to spend free time reading. I never thought I'd use a Kindle until I got one, and now I use it daily. It's portable, easy on the eyes, and gives her the chance to read anything she wants.

A Puzzle - I've always enjoyed doing puzzles in my free time but as I grew older I lost time to do them. My girlfriend got me one last Christmas, and we have been doing them together ever since. They are great when one of you want to watch a movie or TV that the other may not be as interested in. The other person can relax and do a puzzle, but you are still spending time together. We normally pick one out together that we really like, then glue it together when we finish it. Our plan is to eventually frame them and put them up in our office.


Less serious:

Body Pillow - I've had friends give this to their SO's and the reaction is always hilarious. For the girlfriend who "has to have you there" to sleep comfortably.


I'll leave it to those for now. I'm not much of a cook, outdoorsy person, or crafty so my suggestions for those would be lacking. Good luck, but just remember no matter what you get her, she'll love it. Just...make sure you actually get her something. It's not just the thought that counts.

u/Lizalizaliza1 · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I'm an American with family in Australia who has done this flight...far too many times. I have a flight routine for both skincare and general comfort that has made my life better (as good as it can be IMO without shelling out for business class):

-Tradeoff between aisle seat/good bathroom access and being able to lean against the plane wall/look out the window. Avoid middle seat at all cost! I don't mind waking people up so I usually go for the window.

-skin: take your makeup off and moisturize before the flight. No one is paying attention! On the flight, get up after dinner and do a night time routine with some sort of thick moisturizer at the end - I used Clinique moisture surge overnight mask last time and it worked pretty well. Do a morning routine before breakfast (and brush yr teeth. This makes you feel far less gross.).

-Bring lysol wipes and wipe your arm rests and tray table down when you sit down. You will look like a crazy person, but again: no one cares and you want to avoid getting sick.

-If you request a special meal they'll serve you first and honestly I think a lot of times the food is better? I usually get a vegan meal or the Indian meal.

-Bring something you like to help you sleep. Melatonin or dramamine or whatever. Take it after dinner. Have like one drink with dinner (tbh the wine on Qantas/Air New Zealand is usually decent!) and then start watching a movie and drift off midway through it.

-A nice neck pillow (I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/Cabeau-Evolution-Memory-Travel-Pillow/dp/B004ZIDXK2/) and noise canceling headphones (I have bose quietcomforts and they made my life so much better.) are nice but not necessary.

I don't know where your family is, but I've never really had a big problem with the weather & my skin where my family is. It'll probably be warm, but just treat it like you would an american summer and wear more sunscreen than you think you need to, because the sun just seems stronger there.

Anything imported is going to be really pricey, but Australian brands usually end up being a bit cheaper once you take the exchange into account. I stocked up on Lanolips last time I was there. Natio's a nice drugstore brand. Anything American is probably cheaper here than there, so I'm sure your family would appreciate whatever you bring!! I know you can't get strong acids there, so if you know someone who would appreciate babyfacial or the ordinary peel or something, that's probably a good choice.

u/whenwillthewaitend · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

If I had it to do over again I would have gotten the Leachco Back 'n Belly or the "chic" version of that pillow. What I actually got was a mini snoogle and while it was fine and perfectly sufficient early on I'm now having to supplement it with a couple of other pillows. Sure using 2 other "normal" pillows that I already had laying around the house is cheaper but it's also a huge pain. Every time I roll over or get up (ya know, approximately 20+ times a night trying to get comfortable or getting up to pee) I have to move every single pillow then re-position every single pillow. There is nothing that takes you from mostly asleep to wide awake during a position change like having to wrestle a snoogle and also move 2 other pillows while struggling to get everything in the perfect spot. And, ya know, no pressure to make sure it's all in the right spot because if it isn't I'll just wake up an hour later with severe rib/back/round ligament/whatever pain and won't be able to go back to sleep at all.

At this point the $60-90 for the back 'n belly (or chic version) that I thought wasn't worth it is feeling 100% worth it. I'd love to have a pillow that goes around so I can just roll over and already have stuff on the other side if that makes sense. I've actually seriously considered spending the money just for the 3rd trimester because honestly maybe 3-4 more weeks is enough to get my money's worth. At this point anything that helps me not hurt all the time and helps me sleep is kinnnndaa priceless.

So that's my advice. Definitely get a pregnancy pillow. Definitely don't think about "but it's so expensive for something I'll only use for X long!" unless you just really don't have the money in your budget. Get whatever you honestly think has the best chance of keeping you comfortable for the next however long, including the 3rd trimester instead of saying "maybe this will be good enough and it's so much cheaper!" like I did.

ETA: If it matters I had a bad lower back before pregnancy. I've also always had a tendency to get intercostal chondritis (rib pain) and pregnancy has only made that 100x worse. And I have bad pelvic girdle pain. If you don't have any preexisting issues and you don't end up with PGP it's possible you wouldn't need as much support to stay comfortable.

u/MacabreChaos · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hugs for youuuu <3

I think Alpacassos/Arpakassos are the cutest things ever. <3 :>

If you're a fan of round, big, soft cute things, I'd definitely recommend checking out www.squishables.com. :) I have a Squishable myself and can attest to how awesome they are for cuddling!

I've also heard great things about body pillows. Similarly, there's those "dakimakura"/Japanese body pillows where you can replace the pillowcase with your favorite video game/anime/TV show character/male/female/whatever if that floats your boat. Example here slight NSFW.

There's also the infamous boyfriend pillow.

Hope this helps! I love cute soft things myself. :> Thanks for the contest and good luck. <3

u/TenmaIsMyLight · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Many foreign websites primarily target the domestic market, which in this case is not us. Most Japanese sites are only in Japanese, only ship to Japan and some even only accept payment from Japanese cards and bank accounts. Because of this Proxy companies will purchase items from these websites on your behalf , hence the name proxy.

The typical way of doing things is providing the proxy site with the link to the item you wish to purchase, some sites have interfaces to help browse popular sites but you can just use a link to the item you are interested like this. They will then see that they can purchase the item and will then typically ask for payment for the item itself. Once they have purchased and received the item they will then determine what it will cost to ship it to you and then ask for payment for that. There will also typically be a handling fee which is what they make their profit off. Once that is paid they will ship it to you and you now have your item that you could technically only buy in Japan.

There are a number of different proxy companies out there that have different fees and services so I would advise that you have a look around and see which service best suits your situation. Some example of proxies are listed in the side bar (old.reddit.com or opt out of the redesign to see it if you cant) as well as some other ones like ZenMarket, Buyee and many more. I personally have used SutoCorp and Tenso (forwarder service, Buyee is their proxy service) to order items from Japan and I would recommend NOT going with SutoCorp for this type of purchase if you can avoid it due to their very high % fee. Their service is better if you want lots of small items as they dont charge per item like some others do.

u/0ywiththepoodles · 1 pointr/March2018Bumpers

I have scoliosis which has affected my hips (among other things) since I was about 12 years old. So I've been sleeping with a pillow between my legs for at least the last 15 years. My physical therapist told me (and was absolutely right about this!) that if you're laying on your side, you want your bottom leg down and straight-ish, and your top thigh in line with your hip. So you'll actually want a pretty thick pillow under your top leg to keep everything in line. That's held true for me during pregnancy, too.

At 12 weeks I splurged on the Leachco Back 'n Belly Contoured Pillow and it's amazing. The head part was a little too thick for me and hurt my neck until I broke it in, but the body part was absolutely perfect for supporting my back and my little belly. Also, the reviews about the seam along the head part are absolutely true, but I took a seam ripper to it and also cut vertical slits along the head part seam and it's perfect now. I figured the sooner I buy it the more use I'm getting out of it! And truly, you need to do what makes you comfortable and forget about any preconceived notions of "but I'm not even that big/far along yet!" :)

u/DakimakuraGuy · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

The sidebar is probably the best place to look, since the main site I linked in my old thread isn't really active anymore. Nijigenshingu on the sidebar is still my personal favorite active site, but not every site is going to catch every single release, so it's good to look through a few. Pixiv/Twitter are great sources as well; just follow a bunch of hobby artists/companies/etc, and you'll see stuff pop up regularly.

There is only one accepted option in this sub, honestly: Suck it up and buy a DHR6000. Total cost will run you about $160, and you can either pick it up from Amazon.jp using a proxy/forwarder, or buy it directly from Amazon with the shipping cost already factored into the inflated price. Yes, shipping is an absolute bitch (almost the cost of the pillow itself.) Yes, it's absolutely worth it. You can look at previous question threads, and you'll find at least one question each month asking about the best pillow, and the answer is always the same.

But I'll directly respond to some of the questions/points you made.

For Royal Pillow, you'd have to call them up and do a custom order. Pillow will run you about $15-20 depending on the options chosen, but they don't (or didn't when I ordered) vacuum seal pillows and they shipped UPS, so shipping is expensive. Back when I ordered 3 pillows, shipping cost me about $70, which is around what it takes to ship a pillow from Japan (that will arrive sooner, most likely.) The actual quality of the pillows is pretty lackluster. I bought their base filling, and it was too puffy for me to initially lay on, and got beat down really quick, with no good middle ground. The gel was a little better, but also didn't have any longevity and I also had an issue with feathers poking through the pillow and through my cover, damaging it.

Amazon pillows might be decent, but I don't know. Most dakimakura covers are going to be 2WT, which is rather elastic, so it's generally okay if the pillow is a little bigger, but if it's smaller you're going to have some irritating slack.

If you're going to buy a Japanese pillow, don't cheap out; shipping is going to be expensive no matter what, so you may as well opt for quality.

Air filled pillows are a cheap alternative, but I doubt they're a good long term or comfortable choice.

u/LadyTechnocracy · 16 pointsr/pics

My OCD (along with radically different sleep patterns) keeps me from sharing a bed with my fiancé, but he loves cuddling, so as an anniversary gift, I decided to make a body pillow version of myself for him to keep in his bed!

I started by commissioning a very large anime-esque portrait of myself by starexorcist and then had the image printed on a pillow case through ArtsCow. Shipping took forever, but the quality is great! The pillow itself came via Amazon.

I suppose I should say the technical term for this pillow is "dakimakura"- I get a kick out of seeing dakimakuras with anime characters on them at conventions and my fiancé loves anime too, so I figured this would be a fun (and funny) gift to give.

What do you think?

u/Hrothmund16 · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Greetings myBAD77. You mentioned "for a good price" before it got removed if i recall correctly (We have a question thread for questions as you can see in the sidebar or the sticky post as the first post thingy)

First off as far as i know EVERY English site where you can buy dakis sell fake dakis. As in they steal the art and then print them themselves which may results in an altered/blurry image and inferior quality.

I assume you are familiar with the limited time you can purchase most covers in the pre order periods and sometimes events. Most covers are 160 x 50 cm. There are some that are 150 x 50 but they might only make up 5% of what gets released.

The cheapest best price/quality that is printed on demand is from AcHobby. Which cost 75 USD excluding shipping.

You can contact Alknoal on facebook he is able to just ship things to US without needing a proxy.

If you want a bit more expensive but good pillow that most of us have and everyone here is greatly satisfied with. If you intend to buy and use more covers do yourself a favor and buy at least a good pillow. (It will have a reasonbly large shipping cost):

If there are any characters or series you like just mention them and am sure one of us has the time to look what has been released for that character or series. Most of the covers that get released are NSFW being about 95% NSFW and the remaining 5% being SFW.

For older covers the easiest way to get them is to see if they are listed on Mandarake or Yahoo Auction. The majority of what they sell are unused and sometimes opened. Mandarake does not sell counterfeit items but a lot of cheap stuff on Yahoo is. Everything under about 8k on Yahoo has a good chance of being fake so always check for tags and other auctions of the seller. You can always ask in the question thread if you are not sure.

Get a good quality neck cushion. I have a memory foam one that connects at the front gently so you don’t do the head bobbing thing. Even An inflatable one that holds you steady will really help.

Second get that massage and take your icy hot patches through security in your carry on and put them on once you get through.

Third request wheelchair service at the airport. You may think you can walk fine but what people forget about is the standing in line and lifting/lugging bags. I’m early 30s and hate to use it but it’s a game changer for your comfort.

Fourth if you can find one or have time to order from amazon, consider an inflatable square that goes under your feet if you have lower back pain. It flattens to nothing and takes a few breaths to inflate. There are varying sizes and it’s been a huge benefit for me when flying. If you’re really tall or not worried about lower back pain, skip this one.

Here’s the neck pillow I love.
Here’s the blow up footstool I love.
Here’s an alternate footstool I tried and liked.
Here’s a full body cushion I tried but wasn’t right for me. Could help you though because we have different pain.

Ps I don’t get anything from this from amazon. These are actual products I bought and tried. Some I love. Some didn’t work for me.

Good luck!

My partner has been over the moon. This is a man who was considering getting a vasectomy over the last year (and he's not even 30) - our pregnancy was a big surprise. But he's SO HAPPY and excited about the pregnancy; he always has a hand or two on my bump, and loves to lay with his head on my belly to hear & feel movement. And he genuinely loves my pregnant body, which is a relief sometimes when I feel like a land whale. (My self-confidence is sometimes really high - but it also falls victim to the fact that pregnancy has given me the unpleasant, uncontrollable ability to change my mind at a moment's notice and hold a vastly different position on something than I did 30 minutes prior. And I'm supposed to name a child with this kind of indecisiveness? DAMNIT.)

Being pregnant makes you feel a little bit like superwoman, once you get past the initial misery. Right at about 13 weeks is when mine finally knocked off. 16-17 weeks were SO AMAZING - I wish I could have bottled that whole time period and kept it going forever. Energy, libido, mood, everything was GREAT!! Now I'm starting to sneak into "Ehhh, nothing is comfortable anymore =(" territory, as well as dealing with my GOD DAMN BRAIN failing me at every turn.

Get a pregnancy body pillow. The normal flat ones they sell at home furnishing stores won't do it. I got a Snoogle and it is AMAZING. OMFG. Best sleep I've had in a long time, and it's actually been helping cut down the insane pregnancy dreams. I slept for 12 hours last night. A-mazing.

Once you get out of the first trimester - where YOUR body is doing all the really hard work - it's up to the kiddo to just get bigger and develop. So it's been really fun to track all the changes and see him on the ultrasound. Feeling him move is crazy, and getting crazier all the time. In the beginning (I first felt him at 16 weeks), I could only feel him if he kicked the front of my stomach. Now I can feel him moving around and kicking down or toward the back. It's very bizarre, but kind of cool!

u/Travis100 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You do have some pretty practical things on your wish. I'll try to keep my choices under $75 in case you really want something, that way you can buy it right away (or even buy a few things at one time)!


  1. This Pillow can be very important for you if you really need a new pillow and/or don't sleep well at night. New, comfy pillows can really help with staying cool, clean, and comfortable at night.


  2. This Laptop Cooler also seems very important. If your laptop does get very hot, or you can't use it on your lap, then you need this! This cooler/stand/lap thing will really help as your laptop will stay cool, last longer, run faster, and you can use it on your lap and on the go!


  3. Rechargeable Battereis are always very important as they save time, money, and the earth! You don't have to buy batteries all the time, you can have new batteries ready all the time, and you don't have to throw batteries away when they die!


  4. Got to have some NSFW fun every once in a while

  5. Nutella... That's all I have to say


  6. Music is very important. It is always good to have a decent pair of ear buds so you can always relax, jog, bike, clean, or do anything to music!


    I may add more stuff to the list, but you get the point! Go for important, but also fun, stuff!

    Surprise me and pick anything from my wishlist! :D
    Go Ben
u/somedafthuman · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Thanks!

I prolly don't have more of a thing than you. I mostly typed that out jokingly. Still love the meme, the porn is great ;)

I'd readily buy it if it weren't tainted by bootlegging. Seeing her listed on many storefronts across several sites among numerous bootlegs from Cuddly Octopus and others keeps me from giving to those numerous faces belonging to a single mass of bootleggery.

I can't say I really care much about what bootlegging does to other's business, more that I like throwing my money at people who care about their craft. Bootlegging is lifeless work. Much of dakimakura is art by fans who draw by their styles that change and improve. Doesn't always appeal to me but when it does, gotta buy till the wallet's dry! Most Chinese sellers like these churn out daki based on what's hype in the moment. To me, the art looks stale, selling by broad appeal.

Anyways, that's me and you do you, of course. I still love that Bowsette daki, the pierced tits especially.

If you don't already have a decent daki inner, I recommend COMODO just because they're conveniently on Amazon while the DHR and others are incredibly marked up. There's the 160cm CMD9000 and CMD9900LS and the 150cm CMD9150 and CMD9950MS. Great entry for higher class Japanese inners, much better than standard maternity pillows and generic Chinese inners. Prices fluctuate of course, with my CMD9900LS at 80 USD and I've seen it gone lower.

u/blaaaaaargh · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I see you like Harry Potter. I am a fan of this throw. Or you could get the Marauder's Map! This is also really cool. You need.

I love Harry Potter collectibles. I'm in the process of acquiring all the Horcruxes right now.

If I win I really need a new pillow. It's $1.50 over, so a giftcard towards it would be amazing.

Thank you for the contest and I hope you feel better soon!

Also I just saw you're from Michigan as well! Rad. Are you thinking of going to the meet-up?

u/GigglyGoose · 2 pointsr/santashelpers

You could get her a boyfriend pillow for when you aren't there to cuddle her to sleep! (hehe)

If you can afford a little more then your budget, a hot air balloon ride would be pretty magical.

Okay, okay, a more realistic gift: A Kobo would be nice. It'll give her a chance to read more when she is commuting to school (should she take public transit) or between classes, without having to haul around more clunky books.

You could also check the local theatre listings and see if there are any musicals or plays coming in that she might enjoy seeing. She sounds like she's got a pretty full plate with school, so she might really appreciate a special night out with you full of things to get her mind off of school.

u/GizMo_SANHEDRON · 4 pointsr/predaddit

Two pieces of advice that I hope are helpful for you.

First, get a Snoogle... This will help her stay comfortable, and will give her something to wrap around so that she doesn't wake you so much during the night. It's been a life saver for the wife and I, and she'll get more uncomfortable as things progress.

Next, something that's worked for me, when the wife has been passing out early (which has been pretty consistent the entire time she's been pregnant, since she's a bit anemic), is to go lay down with her at 7:30, then when she starts to doze, go find something else to do for a few hours. When you come into the room later on, since hopefully the Snoogle will be keeping her comfy, you can slip into bed without waking her.

The Snoogle will take up a decent amount of space, so unless you have a King bed, you'll be relegated to a smaller portion of the mattress, but hopefully she'll stay sleeping, and you'll be able to get to bed at a more normal time, and sleep through the night.

Hopefully this is helpful, best of luck with everything!

u/tenaciousb83 · 2 pointsr/NewParents

Hey, congratulations!

The first thing I bought for my wife, after we found out we were pregnant, was the Snoogle pillow. Basically a contoured body pillow for you to sleep with. It especially helps in the later weeks of pregnancy.

A sitz bath is awesome, for you, right after childbirth.

The newborn Boppy is good for the beginning. We used it A LOT, especially in the first couple of months.

The regular Boppy is a must have, in my opinion.

Swaddling is the best, and BREATHABLE swaddle blankets are important. We have a couple of muslin blankets that we’ve used from day one.

The American Academy of Pediatrics book, ‘Caring for Your Baby from Birth to Age 5’, is a an absolute must-have general reference book to keep around, in my opinion. It gives you a lot of the exact same advice and tips as your pediatrician will. Every now and again, my wife and I read or re-read the section that correlates with his current age range, and then we read the upcoming age range. It also answers a lot of basic health and care questions that many people just don’t think to ask.

Also, quick piece of advice: Don’t get attached too early to any specific brand for anything that’s meant to go in a baby’s mouth (bottles/nipples, pacifiers, teethers, etc.). Your baby will choose her preferences. It kinda sucks to go ahead and buy and wash the full Dr. Brown’s bottle set, only to find out that your baby doesn’t like Dr. Brown’s, and prefers Munchkin Latch instead. Trust me.

u/GalithZ · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

So first off, I have several questions. I'm very new to this so I have no idea where to start. There's really only two covers I want to get: Saber Alter and Rin Tohsaka from Fate. I would love to find a nice Mordred cover, but I haven't found any that I like. I also know that that's how this starts and will likely buy more in the future. "I only want this or that and won't buy another". Damn myself for being such a materialist!

Anyways, I really like this one simply because it lines up with UFOtables look for Saber, (https://peroperopiroo.moe/shop/saber_alter_dogfucker.html) though I don't know which option to pick for the material. Is Chinese 2wt good to go with or should I upgrade? I will def. be going for the "family friendly" version.

​

As for the Rin Tohsaka one, (original: https://eveningcall.net/InformationDetail.aspx?NewsId=437 updated version: https://eveningcall.net/InformationDetail.aspx?NewsId=347) I've had my eye on one of these by Evening Call. They seem to be quite rare sadly, which is a shame as this artist is the only one I've seen do a Tohsaka design that I really like. All the others make her look way too young or don't get the style just right for my tastes. So any suggestions on finding this one would be greatly appreciated. I've been recommended some sites by a user already, but I figured I'd post here anyway. Thanks BTW, I'll keep an eye on those sites you suggested! u/DakimakuraGuy

​

For the inner pillow, should I just go with my gut and get one from Dakimakuri or should I go with this? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DFJWW86/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=A1WC95IIGIP2OA&psc=1 The reviews make me not want to buy it, but I saw that one user posted a fix to the slipping covers by placing an extra cover underneath the main one. I'm thinking the Dakimakuri, though there's no reviews for their inner pillows yet...

Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow

I used to always sleep with two regular pillows, but just one of these has been perfect every night. Stays pretty cool and is extremely comfortable. Its softer than straight memory foam but still has a lot of support.

I found it on Wirecutter so see their review for more in depth: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-bed-pillows/

u/vroomvroom404 · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

It depends on what kind of sleeper you are. I'm generally a back sleeper - occasionally on my stomach if I'm tossing and turning, but I usually wake up on my back like a log.
I ended up buying [this one] (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K6K4SOS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) from amazon for back sleepers. It wedges me in really well. I often find that I have almost flipped to my back in the night, but even so i'm at like a 45 + degree angle to my side so I feel like it's ok, since I just fall onto the back part. I'm not far enough along that it's a huge issue yet - only 17+4 right now.

Edited to add: We have a king size bed and it fully takes up half of it (and I fit right in the middle). Hubby was a little pissed at first but then I gave him my normal pillow to use as a snuggle pillow so he's happy. Also our pup is very happy because he likes to sleep wedged between his snuggle pillow and my body pillow - he is a mini aussie and used to fall asleep with us on the bed but leave in the night because he'd get hot. Now he thinks he's snuggling us up but he doesn't get hot anymore! .... anyway moral of this paragraph is I don't recommend this one if you're in a queen size bed or smaller unless you have a partner who is totally fine with having less than half of the bed.

u/JarJarB · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I use this pillow and it stays very cool. It can be a little weird to use at first since you have to shape it how you want but once you get it right it stays that way and it’s very comfortable. I like having different types of pillows so I got the thin and the normal ones. Thin are better if you like to sleep on your back or front, normal are pretty thick but good for side sleeping and propping yourself up to watch a movie or something.

u/onebittercritter · 1 pointr/Parenting

Congrats!

Lots of great advice already on this thread, but I wanted to recommend this book as well. It is witty and playful, but has a lot of really good information.

Also, be the best husband in the world and as soon as your wife starts getting big, buy her a body pillow. I made it through my first pregnancy without one, but now at 31 weeks along with my second, I can't imagine how I survived without it.

u/woogydumplings · 1 pointr/ftm

Heya! I had surgery yesterday and everything is going surprisingly smooth! I have almost no pain since I’m up on my medications, and everyone at the centre is soooo so nice and reassuring. You sign in and can go in a pre op room to wait with whoever comes with you (if you want them there) and Genoway, the nurse, and the anesthesiologist all come to talk to you separately and give you lots of time to ask any questions you want to. Then you go in to the OR and lay down, and then you basically just wake up! They’ll keep you for an hour or so and then you’re free to go.

The first day you’re gonna be super out of it and walking around like Frankenstein, but I’m already ok enough to get up and down off the couch on my own and go to the bathroom and stuff. Someone in this thread recommended getting an airplane neck pillow and I 1000% second that. I’ve been sleeping sitting up with a armchair pillow thing (https://www.amazon.ca/Milliard-Reading-Pillow-Shredded-Memory/dp/B0733ZCSR9/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?crid=3FLZU2CCE61LB&keywords=milliard+reading+pillow&qid=1556637693&s=gateway&sprefix=milliaed+rea&sr=8-2 ) and a neck pillow and it’s been way more comfortable than I thought!

You’re gonna do totally awesome 💪 I can’t say anything for results yet, but the surgery itself was not as bad or scary as I thought it’d be, haha

u/[deleted] · 7 pointsr/SewayakiKitsune

Konbanwa na no ja!

This is the dakimakura cover that Good Smile Company sold at their booth at Comiket 96. That was an "early sale" for people who could attend the event, but they are now taking preorders for their general release, which will be in November.

For those men of culture out there interested in cuddling with Senko-san, here in her nighttime yukata, you will need to have a Japanese purchasing agent order it for you, since they will not ship it directly to you outside of Japan. A user friendly option is White Rabbit Express.

As for a matching size pillow, this one would fit the bill.

Preorders will be open until September 18th! Good luck!

u/Luckyshades · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Pillow
Alright so the first part of a pillow is knowing the size you need, are your covers that you have, or are interested in 150x50 or 160x50.


The problem with I think any body pillow is, is the fact that they will sag/flatten over time of use. The higher quality pillow, the longer they will generally last. I have never used a Walmart body pillow, but I can only assume the quality of that pillow is far inferior to almost any other pillow, especially because it only costs 12$. If you are using the dakimakura for usage, you have to invest in 2 different products. The pillow and ofcourse the dakimakura.


If you want to avoid having a somewhat high cost for a body pillow, you are rather limited in your options. I assume that you are from the United States, I assume this because you are talking about Walmart. In the United States you have a decently priced option for a pillow and the shipping shouldn't be too high in price.
http://www.royalpillow.com/body-pillows.asp
So are those pillows really good? I only have experience with the Cluster fiber or Polyester Fiber version (Can't remember which one I had). Was it good? Uhmmm due to the fact it was my first body pillow I thought it was oke. It started flattening still rather quickly though. And for the cost of the product I couldn't expect anything more really. Non the less I used it for a bit over a year, this was mostly because the cost of a pillow is much higher for me. In Europe there is no option like royalpillow for a low priced pillow that had the size I needed. If you are searching for a 160x50 you have to call them to order the custom product, this is not a size they have on their website.


The pillow we recommend though is a different story in price. It's the DHR6000. This is a pillow that's a much higher quality, the actual product cost is around 80$. But it ships from Japan, so the shipping cost will be another 70$ I think. Is ~150$ worth it to you? That is all up to you, that is the pillow I would recommend. For me, it was worth the extra investment. The DHR6000 is 160x50, for the 150x50 you will need the DHR6001


Dakimakura
A dakimakura is the actual cover of the body pillow. You said you purchased your covers from the likes of Amazon and Ebay for less than 50$. This is a clear sign you are buying bootleg covers.


What does a bootleg cover mean you might ask. A bootleg cover means the art on that cover is stolen from artist and used without permission of the artist. That is why you will be able to find those covers for so cheap, they didn't need to invest in the art. A bootleg cover you can purchase from anywhere between 40$ up to 90$ if I remember correctly. Those prices are considered cheap in this hobby. The lower the price the worse the quality of the material. But I'll come back on the material topic.


Next to bootleg covers, there are another 2 classifications of covers. These other 2 classification are considered the legitimate market in comparison to the bootleg market which is considered illegitimate.


Doujin / Circle cover. These covers are created by artists from the fan base. This is by far the most common sort of cover amongst the legitimate covers. The price for these covers are normally 12000 yen(~100$). And they are made from 2WT(Best material). You can either get them while they are up in their preorder period or on the second hand market.


Officially licensed covers. These covers are made by the likes of COSPA and are made with full permission from the company behind the character that is depicted on the cover. These will cost around 10k yen (~85$), but are printed on materials such as Smooth Knit (Half way in between material). It is difficult to find the character you want in these classification.


Material
As brutal as it may sound. But the only material you want for your dakimakura is 2 Way Tricot (2WT), every other material is inferior and is kind of a waste of money really.


In the 2WT material group there is a lot of different, all depending on the manufacturer. Bootlegs offer 2WT as well, but they are at the worst end of the 2WT group, the preferred 2WT are from A&J and P80(There are more, but these ones came up in my head first).


The covers you have are made from Peach skin, this is quite clear because of the price you paid. And all I can say is, you do not want peach skin. The material just feels off, the print quality ain't even good. There is no stretch in the material.


How to spot a bootlegger
I will just quote a previous post from /u/DakimakuraGuy for this.




  • If the site is in English, it's probably a bootlegger. The few exceptions to this are big Japanese sites that also run an English store (Mandarake, Hobby Search, AmiAmi, etc..)

  • Generally, legit covers run ~/> $100, and the price will almost always be in yen (regular MSRP is usually 12000 yen.) That doesn't mean you won't find deals for less than that, but if a site its selling nothing but covers in the $40-80 range, it's probably a bootlegger.

  • If a site offers multiple materials types for every cover listed, it's probably a bootlegger. If a site offers peachskin, *it is a bootlegger.

    Those tips are probably enough to weed out 90% of the bootleggers you'll come across. The other 10% can be a bit trickier, so if you ever have any questions feel free to ask.


    If you are willing to invest more in your dakimakura and need help finding a cover, or searching through the Japanese sites. You are always welcome to ask for help here. In the case of the price range you are searching, I can't help you further because I don't advocate the willingly knowing purchase of bootlegged covers.

Fascinating, thank you for the detailed write up. Although I imagine it's kind of like headphones and the only real way to test a pillow is to hug it :] all the same I am curious if you've ever checked out something like this memory foam pillow that's readily available in USA... the size is a little off but it's super stuffed AND they will send you a whole pillow's worth of stuffing to customize it to your liking (fluffier, denser)...

It's never too early to invest in a Snoogle! http://amzn.com/B0000635WI

I also started with a chiropractor around maybe 18 weeks and am finding it to be extremely beneficial.

Best of luck to you!! And congratulations!! :)

u/Kigahen · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

I really hope you can help me out.
I'm finally able to buy my very first Dakimakura and I'm currently looking for a DHR6000 pillow. But before ordering one from Amazon Japan through a proxy I wanted to ask if I can just by this one from Amazon Germany.

It seems to be the Original DHR6000 and I saw some people ordering theirs from Amazon US as well. Most of the sellers also have a good rating overall so I'd much rather order through Amazon than through a proxy. Do you think it's safe to order from Amazon Germany or is it possible that it could not be the original?

u/perennialoptimist · 7 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have the snoogle!
http://www.amazon.com/Leachco-Snoogle-Total-Body-Pillow/dp/B0000635WI

It's kind of the same thing. I LOVE it. I must admit, I tried sleeping with it in my first trimester and didn't like it. But once I was well into my second I thought it was amazing. Still sleeping with it now, and sleeping well even 5 days past my due date. I must say though... it's HUGE. It's really like having a third person on our bed. Though my husband doesn't seem to mind propping his leg on it, too.

I have this pillow http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002E7DIQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?qid=1396412954&sr=8-5&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70. And I love it, it's so nice to be able to flip sides without having to flail the pillow around with me, I do pleanty of that on my own :) it also props the belly up so I can do a half side half stomach sleep. it takes up a good amount of space so it's not ideal for sleep cuddling but it seems you don't have to worry about that :) other than that the only thing I have against it is its kinda expensive. But then again how do you put a price on good (as good as possible) preggo sleep?

I asked about this on this subreddit and was recommended this travel neck pillow: http://amzn.com/B004ZIDXK2

The recommendation was detailed enough to convince me so I sprung for it without trying it out.

Well, I recently took a trip to Hawaii (8-10 hour flight) and really liked the pillow. So now, I'm recommending it to you. You can wear it forwards (opening in front) or backwards (opening in back).

  1. The sides are very high so it supports your head as you droop to the sides. Also, if you wear it with the opening in the back, you can nod off forwards and it will support your chin nicely because even though the sides are high, there is a dip in the middle of the U shape for your chin. The foam is comfortable and firm-yet-squishy without having a weird smell. The outer cover zips off for washing.

  2. The only modification I'm planning on doing is removing the little string closer and replacing it with a fat strip of thick Velcro. I think that will be more secure. The string closure thingy is the only weakness in the product.

  3. The little pocket is pretty much useless. My iPhone 4S definitely didn't stay in there.

Difference in DHR6001 vs DHR4001? From one of the older questions it seemed the 4000 series has a little less filling but is more guaranteed to satisfy.
I personally would like more filling, but from the reviews off of Amazon.jp:

It seemed the 6001 is perceived more negatively, while the 4001 got all favorable reviews. What's the big deal? Should I just order the 4001 to be safe?

Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional, take my advice with a grain of salt.

My wife suffers from chronic back due to an improperly placed epidural. One thing that helped her was a back brace with lumbar belt. Here's one for reference:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GVO2PVK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_3OoQBb524XVBD

There are also bed assist handles. They are secured to the bed, and help the person pull themselves up:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005JIJRZ2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_aXoQBbHKRNP8W

Finally, you might consider a reading/seat pillow. It supports you so that you can rest sitting up. My grandmother used one of these to help get out of bed when her sciatica prevented her from being able to get off her back: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0733ZCSR9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_-YoQBbNP02W5K

I'm not sure about exosuits for the elderly, I know that they exist, but i don't know any suppliers. Still, a combination of these (maybe all of them) may help. Best of luck.

u/Mephistopheplease · 3 pointsr/Dakimakuras

I have a DHR 6000, but I don't have any other Japanese pillows to compare it too. I would still recommend it to someone in your case. Its still amazingly soft, but with enough firmness to return to its normal shape after you lay with it. Its also thick, and the outer texture manages to secure covers in place quite well.

That being said, a more affordable option might be https://www.amazon.com/COMODO-Original-CMD9000-Dakimakura-Maternity/dp/B07DHSPXTZ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1540533086&sr=8-1&keywords=cmd9000. I've said this a lot in the past couple of days, but if that is authentic its really an amazingly good price. It sure looks legit to me.

Ooooh wedding things! We had these at our wedding and EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PHOTOBOOTH, they're awesome! Our guests used them a whole bunch and it made for super funny pictures!

And in the home section, I highly suggest a good pillow. You won't believe the difference it makes! And we do spend most of our life sleeping.

u/mymagicalbox · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have MS and heat is a huge problem for me. My neck and back hurt constantly(also an MS thing), so I need contoured pillows for support. Normally those absorb heat A LOT and make it so much worse for me, and I get huge migraines. This pillow I think would help me A LOT, I wouldn't have to wake up with huge migraines anymore! That's a major comfort. :)


Awesome idea for a contest, thank you!

u/waifudakilord · 1 pointr/anime

Not the same person, but the general consensus in the daki community for 160x50 cm sized dakimakuras is the A&J DHR6000. It's pretty pricey, but it feels really nice. Usually people order it from Amazon Japan with the help of a proxy, but I think if you live in the States they recently made it available on Amazon.com. Let me know if you need anymore help!

u/lu1ipuli · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

I am almost 27 weeks and all I have needed so far is a pillow to help support my belly - this one is what I've been using since about 16 weeks and it is awesome. I actually have one of the large u-shaped pillows - this one ...not a Snoogle, since I was told by friends who tried one during their pregnancies that it sucked because you would have to reposition the whole dang thing every time you wanted to switch sides. I actually haven't used it yet because we have a queen bed and it will seriously take up SO much of the bed. I'm perfectly comfortable with my belly pillow so far.

u/AnguisetteAntha · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. This Slide because my daughter loves to climb on everything and her outdoor toys are here favorite toys and this could be used inside too when it's too cold out or raining. She's got so much cabin fever right now. This is a great way for little ones to burn off energy inside or outside.

  2. This office chair I work from home on a laptop so I need a good, supportive chair for my lower back pain. This chair is ergonomic and great for use when you're online!

  3. Memory foam cool pillow. Everyone could benefit from a high quality, comfortable pillow to improve their sleep!

  4. This book on making yourself happier this is an awesome book!! It's a creative way to find more happiness in your life and help depression and anxiety. This book would be a great tool for anyone.

  5. Cooking, with SCIENCE how cool is this?! It's using science to learn awesome ways to cook!! This is for anyone who needs food to survive, but hates those annoying kitchen fires!

You need a body pillow! A friend of mine couldn't sleep without it in her last trimester.

I found a list of stuff that should get you started: http://www.webmd.com/baby/guide/what-to-buy-pregnancy. But another thing is just remember to take care of yourself too before and after the baby. Treat yourself to a prenatal massage before baby comes, and maybe even a mani/pedi. Congratulations :)

Does anti-motion sickness medicine (like Dramamine) work for you? If so, I recommend getting that for the flight. I also have prescription Ambien that I bring to help me sleep.

I bought this inflatable pillow a few years ago and it helps me sleep better than those neck pillows. And since it’s inflatable, it’s easy to pack.

I also recommend wearing shoes you can easily take on and off as well as comfy socks.

u/Aspel · 7 pointsr/wowthissubexists

Eh.... Not too expensive for a body pillow itself. Plus they're really good for actually sleeping with if you need something between your legs for support and find it easier to hug something when you sleep (whether crippling loneliness or back support or whatever).

It also looks like they're actually slips/covers, which I only really just noticed, and I bet most of the money comes from the print pattern. They don't seem to like "bootlegs" though, so I can only guess that they don't approve of making your own. Dunno why, since like /u/PotatoMurderer says, they're not exactly official.

Also, I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and assume most of those Redditors are using their own money and are moderately well off, not using their grandparents' money. Probably more well off than the actual Japanese the things are made for, considering Japan's economy is suffering from people not fuckin'.

This is the best. I have tried a bunch of them, and have always gone back to my Snoogle. Yes, it's considered a "pregnancy pillow," but that means nothing--it's just an awesome body pillow marketed to pregnant women. Also, buy the pillow case that has the zipper, if not, it's a pain in the ass to get the cover on and off for washing.

Good luck!

u/demetri76 · 2 pointsr/simracing

I agree about lack of lumbar support hurting your lower back. I fixed that by buying one of those memory foam lumbar pillows on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D5J7SL2/). No more back pain for me even after several hours.

Now the wheel being too high and pedals too close can be fixed too if you're OK with more upright seating position. My real life daily driver is an SUV, so I'm used to that, but I understand that it could be awkward for other people. So what I did is I raised the seat by 1.5" using two 8020 15-series profile pieces that I put between the frame and the seat rails. I also used them for attaching keyboard tray and shifter mounts as it gives much more adjustability than the stock 6cm spaced holes and I coul finally mount both the shifter and the tray on the right side to have an unobstructed entry from the left side. Here're some pictures of my setup, hope that helps: https://imgur.com/a/52onJ

And I don't understand the complain about the shifter being too close. If you mount it using the same holes that are used for the front cross bar it will be anything but too close. When I added that 8020 I even even moved the shifter a bit closer to me. I'm 6'1" (185cm) and have rather long arms and legs and after all these upgrades the rig is pretty comfortable to me to sit the whole day in it.

My issue with the snoogle was that I turn over a lot, and it was impossible to deal with. I ended up with this one that's basically a U shape where your head is in the bend with pillow on both sides, but your legs are free. It's a vast improvement, but is pretty big.

u/suckinonmytitties · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

this was the pillow, its one of those cooling type ones but also specifically for side-sleepers. I really love it because it isn't too firm and is the perfect height!

u/bunnydoom · 2 pointsr/August2016Bumpers

I bought this and it's really helpful for getting comfortable. Hubby and I have a queen bed and both fit just fine even with the giant pillow. It's not hard to get out of the bed either, I just flip the leg of the pillow up to hop out rather than climb over it.

I still end up waking up on my back about half the time (something I have always done and I have no conscious knowledge of turning over in the night), but it definitely helps me at least fall asleep on my side. I'm usually a stomach sleeper and had a horrible time trying to sleep before getting my pillow!

Edited to add: It looks like that particular pillow is out of stock on Amazon right now, but there are similar ones from other companies, and I'm sure other places probably carry it.

u/frontreverie · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Hey there! Uhh...first off, I don't think we're allowed to mention..that/any bootlegger name here? I mean, its not a technically a link but..perhaps just don't name it?

Anyway, I only know second hand info but...

1.) The art quality of bootleggers are always worse, unless they somehow happen to get the original files. Peach skin pales in comparison to tricot. There are loads of different tricot brands but you can bet that the 2 way tricot that bootleggers use are going to be poor quality. Oh, and A&J 2WT is considered the best tricot brand.

2.) Sites? I know bootleg sites often sell their "own" pillow is that what your referring too? I'd forget about those and opt to buy a DHR 6000 by A&J! The best of all inner pillows. Gate also sells them but I think they stopped.

If the price is too much, maybe other the other DHR series? Royal body pillows is said to be a good alternative if you're in the US. Or if you want, you could do a DIY method, /u/DensetsuNoBaka knows how if you've access to Joann Fabrics.

3.) There are loads of legit sellers and sites available, they're just not in the sidebar. Here's ACHobby for example Taobao, JPN booth. Also Dakemakura. The others might/will know more legit sites.

u/ShippoLover · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

The DHR6000 is available and in stock on Amazon Japan no problem, I just got one for my friend less than a month ago. You need to use a forwarder like Tenso or BigInJapan though since Amazon JP doesn't ship the DHR6000 internationally anymore.

And if you found something on eBay, I'm pretty sure there's a 95-98% chance it's sold by a bootlegger. There just are pretty much no legitimate eBay sellers in this hobby.

u/SilverViper · 1 pointr/migraine

Yes, sleep is insanely important and anything that's disturbing it or your neck will cause issues. Go to a store like Bed, Bath and Beyond and try out some pillows if you can. If you get a memory foam, make sure to take your contacts out at night as they often dry out your eyes.

^i have the standard one. It's very nice but needs a few days to air out. It doesn't stay 100% cool if you aren't a person that falls asleep quickly. Best description is that it is firm but giving. I use the gel insert below to deal with the coolness issues.

It is really nice. Came recommended by Wirecutter. The filing is shredded memory foam. It is pretty firm though. Which I like and gives good support, but if you are used to really soft pillows it might seem weird.

It does tend to get compressed though, so you need to fluff it fairly often.

One great thing about it is that the whole pillow is machine washable.

Thanks! I'm 6 months along now, so sleeping is getting harder. I start sleep on my side, but sometimes wake up on my back. I have one of these ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0000635WI?pc_redir=1396582226&robot_redir=1 ) and i use it to prop my legs apart to support my hips, behind me for my back, and under my belly to hold it up. Getting settled in to bed is like assembling a puzzle. Lol

u/swedish_horse · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I got one of these

It felt like a lot to shell out for a pillow, but honestly - it's amazing. I use my regular pillow for my head and position this like a U around my body. I can elevate my feet, prop myself into a semi-side lying position (which helps with my hip pain), and tuck it under my bump when I'm on my side. It's seriously made a huge difference in the quality of my sleep. (I still get up 5 times a night to pee, of course.)

The downside is the price and the fact that it takes up so much space. My husband is definitely counting down the days until he evicts the pillow.

u/artipants · 2 pointsr/infertility

Totally depends on what kind of pillow you want!

My husband absolutely loves his memory foam countour pillow, something like this. I got an old friend of mine this pillow after he complained about always getting hot at night and I know he was still using it a year later. I personally just use $5 cheapies for my head but absolutely need a body pillow to get comfortable. I'm considering one like this because it's longer and firmer than the one I have now.

u/eva1588 · 1 pointr/Posture

Does having your feet up high make it easier for you to sit because you are then leaning a bit more forward, taking pressure off the low back? You could do this by using a stool under your feet, but that might actually end up causing tension in your shoulders, neck and upper back. Because those parts are pushed forward, they are no longer supported by the spine, which will eventually cause pain.. I am thinking the best way to ease the lower back and also support the entire back, (middle and upper) would be to place a cushion behind the low back, or get a chair that is specifically designed for lumbar support. Below is a link to a chair cushion. Might be worth checking out.

dakimakuri sells a good one according to reviews. this one will probably be the easiest (and cheapest? (after shipping, using free shipping)) to buy.

if you want made in japan and high quality, look at A&J's DHR6000, A&J's DHR7000, fules' withAQUA, [email protected]'s marshmallow (expert edition or mark 2). they should all be available on amazon jp.

It's a body pillow that makes sleep so much more comfortable during pregnancy. It's really amazing and is so helpful. Here is an example of one :)

u/fluttershy123 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. This pillow!. It would help me relax because of the memory foam. The memory foam would help my neck/back pain so I can relax when I sleep or just want to lay down.

  2. Anything light blue would be nice.

    thanks for the contest!
u/VicodinMakesMeItchy · 1 pointr/Fibromyalgia

The best thing I ever did for sleep-pain is definitely learn to sleep on my back. I've not personally experimented with mattresses, but as for hardware, I loooove my foam pillow with neck support (like this one, though not exact https://www.amazon.com/Support-Washable-Orthopedic-Sleepers-Standard/dp/B06XCPQ4Y7 ) and to use a body pillow I bought (similar: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004TMHX1E/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1524624888&sr=1-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&dpPl=1&dpID=31bTUDefTpL&ref=plSrch ) to go underneath my knees when I'm on my back to take strain off my hips, or put it between my knees and elbows if I'm on my side. They also make pregnancy pillows for extra support!

I am a first time buyer and just pre-ordered Maidoll's Reika cover https://maidoll.booth.pm/items/1215934

​

I have been doing some research on an inner pillow and came up with three options:

  1. COMODO CMD9900LS: https://www.amazon.com/COMODO-Original-CMD9900LS-High-End-Dakimakura/dp/B07DFJWW86/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1550005417&sr=8-1&keywords=CMD9900LS
  2. dakimakuri pre-order https://dakimakuri.com/shop/item/inner
  3. DHR6000 (anyone know if this is legit?) https://www.amazon.com/Dakimakura-body-pillow-original-DHR6000/dp/B00CFG0B3I/ref=sr_1_6?s=bedbath&ie=UTF8&qid=1550007371&sr=1-6&keywords=dakimakura

    Does anyone have any recommendations among the 3? Especially as something starting off, the DHR6000 at $170 feels pretty steep. I was thinking of starting off with a mid-range pillow and upgrading eventually if I felt like it. Any comments is greatly appreciated!
u/nutella47 · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

I originally had the snoogle but exchanged it for the back and body pillow, which I like much better. As you can see, this pillow hugs you on both sides. It's been hot as hell here lately and the pillow hasn't made anything worse. I sleep with a fan pointed toward me and haven't woken up overheating. I highly recommend this one if you toss and turn a lot like I do.

u/GunStinger · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Cospa isn't bad, but it's not a premium body. From what I've seen on this sub, most people seem to prefer something more in the line of A&J, Comodo or Marshmallow, but those are the more serious collectors.

I was plenty happy with one that was basically Cospa's price-class with more stuffing for many years, though I have a Fules WithAqua now, which I think is the cheapest premium pillow you can get thanks to their ongoing introductory price.

u/ChadwickGates · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I recently got this one. The marketing for it says it's good for side and stomach sleepers. I've only had it for a week but it's been fantastic. As an added bonus, it seems to have helped with my mild sleep apnea, too. I have no hard evidence for this, it's only anecdotal, but I seem to be sleeping a lot more soundly and breathing better at night. I have no idea how long the pillow will last so I don't think I can say it's BIFL right now. We'll see how it holds up.

u/snCoolyFooly · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

I’m not sure about a physical location, but you can just order one online and ship it to wherever you’re staying. Looks like it’s free domestic shipping as well.

u/DensetsuNoBaka · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Well, first you need the link to the pillow's sale page. linkie

Next you need to decide what proxy to use. Personally, I recommend SutoCorp (link on the sidebar). Obviously there are a few other entirely acceptable proxies you could use, they're just the one I have the most experience with. Read through some of their service information on the site, and then shoot them an email containing the URL of the goods you want them to order. They should contact you back within 24 hours with down payment instructions, and then keep in touch with you as the order process progresses.

That's about it. If there's anything else I can help with, feel free to ask \^.^

u/Skallox · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Thanks. I'll make a habit of checking it regular with the sites linked in your ancient post, that seems to be the best way to avoid the terror of missing out.

As a side note, where is the best place to find the 1600mmx500mm pillows? I understand that royalpillow will do them in the states but the options I'm finding that are readily available are:

  1. Buy this 60"x20" pillow and deal with it being a bit too short for 1600x500 pillows and perfect for 1500x500 pillow.

  2. Buy this silly round style of pillow and deal with it being too long for 1500x500, just right for 1600x500 but now everything is cylindrical.
  3. Buy a pillow directly from a retailer like amiami and potentially get gorrila-ass-pounded on shipping costs. Not to mention how quickly this style of generic pillow breaks down.

  4. Buy an air filled pillow and potential puncture and deflate your waifu.

    Is there a good/better/best option that I am overlooking?

    EDIT: These appear to be the regular suspects here but they're pretty damn expensive. Do you really get what you pay for? DHR6000 and DHR5000.
u/Gefilte_Fish · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Sorry that I can't give you a brand, but I bought mine from a local mattress manufacturer. It's made from the same talalay latex that my mattress is made of. Comes in soft, medium, firm. Firm is probably best for side sleepers like us. Very comfy. Look up talalay latex pillow. Expect to spend about $80.

Stay away from memory foam. It's a closed-cell foam and gets really hot because it can't breathe.

Edit: This looks close to what I have:

Generally if you don't want to use the name around others, the easiest way to avoid slipping up is to not use it much when alone either. I hope the dog is okay with sharing it's lodging for the time being though!!

u/MarrCharr · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Hey guys new to dakimakuras and recieved mine a few months ago from the Grisia VN Western Release and I have a question or two if you will humor me! :)

  1. I have purchased the http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00FPEE2WS pillow and I have to say I really like it. I have my Michiru on and have been enjoying the better sleep I have gained from using pillow. The problem is I have heavy night sweats and the pillow has become lumpy and nasty(not to bad but enough where it bothers me). I would say that it is due to the material inside the pillow but I could be wrong. Could someone direct me to another high quality pillow that could serve as either a replacement or companion(Sakaki) that has better materials on the inside? I used to sleep with normal size pillows between my legs at times and no "lumpage" would occur, so my knowledge of all daki pillows fabric and its materials are quite foreign to me.

    If possible, can I wash that pillow and perhaps make the lumps go away??

    Thanks for any and all help in advance!!

u/trippknightly · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I recommend a memory foam pillow like this one which I've had for four years and it is awesome. More like a thick cloud than a cloud per se. No affiliation.

u/lexm · 3 pointsr/predaddit

You can always buy her this pillow. It does feel like you have a medieval fortress in the bed (even in a king size one) but it helps my wife quite a bit.

We're at the beginning of the 3rd trimester and she's having issues being comfortable even with the pillow though.

u/NaptownRose · 1 pointr/Septemberbumpers2017

The snoogle is just ok (but I realize I'm in the minority camp on this). Kinda pricey for the quality of pillow and really hurts my neck. I switch between a 3-pillow stack up to sleep on my back partially sitting up, and sleeping on my side with a pillow between my knees and sometimes the snoogle at the end of the bed for knee/back/hip support. I. CAN'T. GET. COMFORTABLE. Here are my other pillows: 1. Is the favorite pillow from the Sweethome:

u/CuddlyOctopus · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

The DHR6000 should also ship international now according to this thread and can be found here

At the time i have purchased mine through Sutocorp. There may be cheaper services for the US.

  1. Send them a mail with the item you want.

  2. They will request a deposit for the initial 9225 yen.

  3. They order the item, you will recieve confirmation they ordered it and wait.

  4. The item arrives at Sutocorp, they require you to give your adress info and desposit money for the costs for various things such as their service fee, local shipping, international shipping, bank transfer fee and if paying with paypal, the paypal %.

  5. They put it in a box, mail it, and give you the tracking number.

  6. After about a week your bell rings and the mailman gives you your pillow.

  7. Unpack your pillow, put a cover on it and hug it! : D

    It is also available through gate-japan

    I have owned 2 " Cheap" (50 USD, Ebay) pillows before knowing of the DHR6000 or /r/dakimakuras. They where both badly filled which usually resulted in a sleeping arm after 2 hours of sleep. The DHR6000 is a lot better filled, softer and the shell sticks a bit to your cover so it stays better in place. Getting a decent quality tricot cover also helps a lot.

  1. COMODO Original High Class Body Pillow CMD9000 Dakimakura Pillow for Anime and Maternity [Made in Japan] (63 x 20 inch (160cm x 50cm))

  2. COMODO Original Luxury Body Pillow CMD9900LS High-End Class Dakimakura Pillow [Made in Japan] (20 x 63 inch (160cm x 50cm))

    First, is there any difference in these two that makes one $10 more? Second, does anyone know how these compare to something like a DHR6000 or one of the inners that are often recommended?
u/WiscMlle · 7 pointsr/BabyBumps

:-) I just bought a "Snoogle" off of Amazon the other day, and it is amazing so far.. It is basically a giant C-shaped body pillow, but it is worth its price tag for good sleep!

u/NinSonNar13 · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Also, since it doesn't look like anybody has mentioned it, have you considered the actual pillow insert yet?

Almost anybody here would suggest https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00CFG0B3I (or https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00PIM8OTO if a smaller 150x50cm daki), which is pretty much guaranteed to delight her as it's very soft and squishy while holding it's shape well, but it does unfortunately come with some extra work as it doesn't ship to the US.

I myself don't have any other good substitute suggestions (help anyone?), but if you are willing to put in the extra effort, using a proxy service suggested in the side bar will help you get one.

u/Kozinskey · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

My hips have been killing me since second tri and the only thing that helps is a pillow between my legs. I also hate my Snoogle and think it's too warm, so I caved and bought this cooling body pillow with this satin case and actually stay cool enough to be comfortable with it. I especially like having a place to rest my arm that's not on the belly. Sometimes I also put a bolster pillow behind my low back to provide some counterpressure and that helps too.

All in all, I think pregnancy pillows are a racket. I hope you find a good solution. =\

u/LoopholeTravel · 3 pointsr/churning

u/Zerimas · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

That listing doesn't ship to Canada unfortunately.

>As a counter point to your statement on the insanity of spending that much on a pillow, the price of the cover of said sexualized depiction of an anthropomorphized aircraft carrier would often be in the ranges of $115+ CAD assuming that it was a Japanese cover.

I just paid for it. $173 CAD including shipping. It was this cover. I rationalize the cost somewhat because it is a small production run, and presumably the artist is making a healthy commission on the whole thing. At least I hope that is the case, otherwise I'd feel a little silly about going all in the authentic Japanese cover. Pillows are a simple and mass produced object. Granted all my pillows are shitty, but a pillow would have to be really impressive to command that kind of dough.

Is there an English friendly seller of these pillows from Japan? I found one listing on Amazon.ca but it is $184 plus another $96 shipping. There has gotta be a more inexpensive way to get the same item.

I don't know. The whole thing is completely insane. I may as well get a decent pillow. That daki cover of Unicorn was just too goddamn cute. I had to have it. It seems weird to sleep on it because it so lewd, but whatever. I would have preferred a lurid, but more clothed version, but the illustration is just so perfect I couldn't not buy it. I rarely see covers that I really like, and when I do they aren't available so I had to jump on this one.

Sorry just trying to come to terms with fact the fact that I paid a princely sum for (hopefully) high-quality, large loli pillow case.

u/OMGSpaghettiisawesom · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I got tired of flipping the snoogle and got this. It's expensive and takes up most of the bed, but it was very worth it. I didn't have to adjust it. It was like a giant hug.

This is what I use. Amazon carries it. For me, it is just about perfect. Always cool, supportive and really comfortable. Also didn't have a strong chemical odor when it was brand new. Any odor it did have dissipated quickly. I feel really dorky saying this, but it is one of my favorite things.

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.

u/freepantsu · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Sorry for the late response. I am a huge fan of the DHR6000 pillow from Amazon JP if you want a 160x50 cm pillow which fits the corresponding cover amazing showing off the artwork perfectly without the little flaps of left over fabric. If you get a 160x50cm cover get a 160x50cm body pillow. For some of the licensed Cospa covers they have 150x50 dimensions, so if you wanted to sleep on them you would probably wanna get a Cospa 150x50cm body pillow to match, but any body pillow would work.

When it comes to material for covers there is usually just one material. Covers that come in a variety of materials are usually bootlegs. There are rare instances where dakimakuras can be reprinted with different materials.

u/Figdaki · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

For purchasing a inner pillow it seems like the general consensus from looking around here is that the DHR6000 is the best. Do most people purchase it through a proxy or forwarding service? I found this and this on the japanese amazon but are they the same as the one from the A&J site? If they are the same would it make more sense to purchase it from amazon and use a forwarding service instead of directly from A&J with a proxy? While using a forwarding service seems like it would be cheaper everyone who mentions buying one seems to say they used a proxy. Is there some aspect of purchasing it that I'm missing?

u/HH_Boba_Fett · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

Well it seems you can't directly purchase it so you either have to use a proxy or a different kind of forwarding service.

This pillow is an amazon item from one of the DHR6000 links below (from gate-japan.co.jp): http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E6%8A%B1%E3%81%8D%E6%9E%95%E6%9C%AC%E4%BD%93-J%E3%82%AA%E3%83%AA%E3%82%B8%E3%83%8A%E3%83%AB-DHR6000-%E3%83%8F%E3%82%A4%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E3%82%B9-160cm%C3%9750cm/dp/B00CFG0B3I?SubscriptionId%3DAKIAJNH2BLSXYRFQ7SQA%26tag%3Ditemsearch01-22%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB00CFG0B3I

So yea those listed amazon from their respective companies should indeed be fine.

I ordered mine with SutoCorp as that seems to be one of the most used proxies in this board and while I could've gone cheaper with some other proxy I wanted to try out SutoCorp just to see how they handle things.

I've had the first one for 9 years now. Still kicking. I paid $140 back then though.

Also, if you have a Costco near you, they sell pillows that have pieces of memory foam (like diced up) in a 2-pack for $10. They don't retain shape well, so you can't really prop them up or anything, but they're awesome for sleeping.

For pregnancy back pain, a friend recommended the Snoogle and wow. Amazing. My daughter is almost 3 and it lives on her bed now -- but just using it for 2 years has trained me to be a better side-sleeper and have fewer aches in the morning!

u/AlexTakeTwo · 2 pointsr/Fibromyalgia

I absolutely love body pillows, I usually end up laying half on them in addition to having it prop up my knee or support my hips. You can get a basic one at Target for around $15, and they'll last for a while. I went through those every couple years til I got a better one online that lasted about 5 years. I recently upgraded to the Cadillac of body pillows, though, and it's amazing. Memory foam so it contours really nicely, and heavy enough that it doesn't shift around. It is stupid expensive, but I decided it will last long enough to be worth it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011U1LIK8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Have you tried a lumbar support cushion? I have one of these at work and one for my chair at home and they've been a lifesaver for my back.

I agree with grabbing something to eat. I'll also add getting this pillow. I'm carrying twins and this has been my best friend since about 11 weeks. I took a trip once without it and missed it so much! My hips were pissed off all day.

"Iso-Cool pillow responds to a body's changing temperature by warming or cooling" ... Sounds way too good to be true.

u/sayyestolycra · 2 pointsr/January2018Bumpers

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.

I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0046GK1AI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_4l1ZCb109ZQSV which I bought cheap at a flea market. I like it, pretty nice. I named it Todd because even I realize how odd it is.

Hi all,
Do you have any inner pillow you would recommend? I've been using this pillow and while it's comfortable most of the time, it tends to not keep its shape. The pillow's filling just clumps to one side of the pillow. I was thinking of getting a DHR6000, but I'm not sure if the "new" one is good or not. I've also seen the CMD9000, but I don't know much about that one.

I have one of those reading cushions with arms that I use in bed and it helps a lot. Like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0733ZCSR9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_hjAWCbMQ02NPP

But the one I have was like $12 at Walmart. I'd there breast friend pillow isn't working for you don't bother. I sometimes use a regular throw pillow or just my arms. Keep trying with side lying every few days, my guy hated it at first but now it's his favorite (and mine!).

Just gonna leave this here If you're willing to spend the money this shit is so fucking amazing, just know that the length is slightly too small for most weeb pillow cases but it's not too noticable, I just rolled up a spare worn down feather pillow and stuffed it in mine to make up the difference. Keeps its shape pretty well, and if you ever feel like it's lost it you can just chuck it in the dryer for like 10 15 minutes on low and it's back to brand new.

u/givemethatllamaback · 2 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

I bought this recently and its very comfortable. Its technically a body pillow but I like to just slip it under my legs or between my knees (when sidesleeping). Its also big enough so I can move a little under my back and still have it beneath my knees. Might not be exactly what you're looking for but its helped me enormously!

I am 24+3 and got my half-moon style Snoogle in the mail about a week ago. It has definitely helped! I was waking up several times a night with hip pains. I tried shoving regular pillows between my knees (starting around 20 weeks) but it wasn't providing any relief, just something extra to fumble with in the middle of the night. Having some sort of contoured body pillow is worth every penny imo. I can switch from side to side without having to re-build my nest. I can roll back into it and rest my shoulders, without ending up flat on my back. It is so comfortable, that I drag it with me from my couch to my bed. My animals love it too. 10/10 will use even after I'm not pregnant anymore.

NAH Sleep is important for every single human. I have this exact same pillow and my husband felt the same way. Our work around was to buy this: https://www.amazon.com/Leachco-Snoogle-Pregnancy-Maternity-Pillow/dp/B0000635WI instead. It still has all the support and comfort of the other, but only half the size so my husband can slither up against my back and still have all the closeness. Gl!

http://www.amazon.com/Leachco-Belly-Contoured-Pillow-Ivory/dp/B0002E7DIQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1376592272&sr=1-2&keywords=maternity+pillow I have this one.

Now that I'm almost 38 weeks, though, I use MANY MORE! I have that as the base, then one long one tucked in both sides, and another for my chest, and about 3 more on top of it for my head so that I am inclined enough to not have as much heartburn.

I sleep in a PILLOW FORTRESS! haha

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.

Something like this?

I've always called these husband pillows lol. But maybe we were talking about the same thing?

u/Kilo_Juliett · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I have a latex pillow that I’ve had for, I don’t know, 6 years maybe and it’s held up perfectly fine.

Z 100% Natural Talalay Latex Zoned Pillow - Queen - High Loft, Plush https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00382XCL6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_mY3cAbJT86942

They make 4 different styles. High loft plush, high loft firm, low loft plush, and low loft firm.

For a side sleeper you want a high loft.

They also make them in king sizes.

Gift idea for a pregnant wife: Get her a maternity pillow! It will not only help her to sleep better and feel more comfortable, but she will be cranky all day! Here is a link to what I am talking about: http://www.amazon.com/Leachco-Snoogle-Total-Body-Pillow/dp/B0000635WI/ref=sr_1_1?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1370968766&sr=1-1

This is the pillow I got in March for side sleeping: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ZK4QH8/ref=ox_ya_os_product
Has been good for me so far. Make sure you get the 1'4" x 1'10" x 2" version, and not the contoured or regular style.

Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Full Size Body Pillow with Kool-Flow Breathable Cooling Hypoallergenic Pillow Outer Fabric - Fits 20 x 54 inch Body Pillow Cases & Covers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B011U1LIK8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_dQ.WDbN1CS1DC

Best $70 I ever spent. It was a game changer for me!

u/typicalaquarius · 6 pointsr/beyondthebump

Make sure she’s got good posture/support if she’s breastfeeding in bed! It’s probably the source of her back problems. It’s handy to have a pillow like this one for back support and a nursing pillow to hold baby up so she isn’t hunching over.

u/gravrain · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I got my wife one of these pregnancy pillows when she was at 6 months and it completely changed things for her. She could actually get comfortable in bed and sleep well. She resisted buying one initially because she didn't think it would make that big of a difference. But it totally did.

I also took up grilling everything outside on our porch for the last two months of her pregnancy.

u/snikkih5 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

A maternity pillow like the Snoogle or a gift card to a place that sells bras.
