If you’re like me, then you spend at least 40 percent of your waking hours chillin’ in bed like Charlie Bucket’s grandparents in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (minus the whole shared-mega-bed situation, hopefully). Whether you’re reading books, watching TV or living that WFH life, everything is made cozier when you do it from bed—but ofc, you’re gonna need some good pillows to help prop you up. The good news is there are TONS of pillows perfect for your binge-watch-in-bed sessions, and we’ve got all the best pillows for sitting up in bed rounded up here for you.

Backrest pillow, reader pillow, sit-up pillow—whatever TF ya call it, the function is basically the same: They let you sit up in bed without any discomfort or straining so you can live your best life. However, you do have a lot of options. There’s the basic wedge pillow, which comes filled with foam and can easily be propped up to let you recline on its elongated side. Then there’s the classic husband pillow, which was once a dorm room staple but is now totally acceptable for grown-ass adults as well. You can opt for a super-long lumbar pillow that you can fold and adjust as you please (and also keep on your bed even when it’s not in use). Whatever your preference, these supportive pillows will ensure that you never wanna leave your damn bed again.
