Comfy Curve REVIEW
“The customer reviews of the Comfy Curve pillow are exactly opposite to what the manufacturer claims.”
Does Not Relieve PainCustomers who have bought the Comfy Curve pillow complain in their reviews that the pillow does nothing to relieve back pain. Whether you sleep on it or use it as a lower back cushion, there is no decrease in the pain. Many customers feel “cheated” as “pain relief” is the key USP of the Comfy Curve pillow.
Does not Offer Adequate SupportOne reviewer mentions that the Comfy Curve pillow is so flat that it would not provide any support even when used as a sleeping pillow. It is a major disappointment considering the time spent and the money invested. A folded bath towel offers more support than the Comfy Curve, one buyer complains. When used as a lumbar support pillow while sitting or driving, there is still a plenty of gap between the lower back and the pillow.
Does it Relieve Back Pain?NOPE. In-fact customers have complained that it aggravates the back pain. This is one of the reasons why people feel cheated by the Comfy Curve, they false claims made by the promoters.
Small PillowThe Comfy Curve pillow is smaller than it appears in the TV. Something like made for a child. The small size of the pillow also contributes to the failure.
So, Does the Comfy Curve Pillow really work?NOPE. clinical studies have shown that pillows with lumbar support are known to relieve the pain in the lower back and improve the overall health of the lower back tissues but this benefit is very small. But unfortunately the lumbar support is not hard enough to provide effective support. The “Ultra-plush” material just cannot take the weight of the body and is flattened.. So the pillow works in theory only.
So what went wrong with the Comfy CurveThe makers of the Comfy Curve pillow have tried to make it versatile back support pillow that would work [provide lumbar support] in all the positions – back-sleeping, side-sleeping, sitting and driving. This just does not work. You need a special pillow for all the above mentioned positions and one pillow cannot have all these features.
A typical lumbar support used in chairs [and in car’s bucket-seat] are small rectangular cushions which offer localized support to the lower back, in the lumbar region. The cushion surface is comparatively harder [not the Ultra-plush of the Comfy Curve ] and thick and wide enough to cover all the gap between the seat at the lower back. A typical seat cushion can be used in office chairs as well as in the cars bucket seat.
A lumbar support sleeping pillow is a wedge with tapering surfaces that align with the shape of the spinal column. The wedge shape too make sure that there is no gap left between the lower back and the cushion.
