Arlee Suede Oversized Bedrest Lounger Review

The Arlee Oversized Bedrest Pillow is one of the biggest husband pillows on Amazon. This is the main benefit of the pillow, so if that’s what you’re after, then you’re on the right track.

The pillow is 19 inches high, 36 inches wide and 24 inches deep. This makes it suitable for larger folk, or you could even fit two people on it if you want to snuggle.

Another benefit of its size is the sturdiness of the pillow. Many people have found it supportive enough while they are recovering from injuries, or for feeding during pregnancy.

The cover is made out of a polyester suede fabric which is comfortable and easy to keep clean.

Arlee Suede Oversized Bed Rest Pillow

Who is it for?

This pillow is ideal for a larger than average person as it has a higher back and width than most husband pillows. It could also be great for couples, or if you like to stretch out when you are laying back.


The cover’s faux suede material is commonly used on sofas and pillows. It is a hard-wearing fabric that should last for many years with a little care.

It is available in a range of colors – Beige, Brown, Blue and Grey. They are all neutral colors which will mean they won’t be an eyesore in your home. This can be an issue with the cheaper options because they are made out of poor quality materials, and not as much consideration is given to the colors.

The fill is made out of a mix of virgin and recycled polyester. The recycled polyester comes from plastic bottles, so you can feel good knowing that you have done your bit for the environment. These materials give it a firm feel and will compress slightly over time. If you find that it does flatten down, you can just fluff the pillow back up to give extra support.

The pillow comes in at quite a light weight – 4 pounds. This is due to the polyester fill as it doesn’t weight much. So even at its large size, it will be easy to move around the house.


Overall the reviews for this product are very good. It has an average rating of 4.4/5, with 73% 5-star reviews.

The good

  • Massive unit with a high back
  • High quality materials and good stitching
  • Very comfortable

The bad

  • Too big for most sofas
  • Angle of arms is not idea as armrests


Overall I would recommend this product to anyone that is after a big bed rest pillow.  If you are after something for your sofa, or if you are sharing your bed, you may be better off with a smaller pillow.

The Arlee brand has been making homewares 1976 so they know what they are doing. They have a long track record and a big range of high quality products.

The product reviews from buyers of the Arlee are generally very positive so it is unlikely you will be disappointed with your purchase.
