Body pillows are among my favorite sleep accessories. They offer unique, full-body comfort that can make sleepers feel like they are cuddling a cushy companion. The body pillow from Coop Home Goods is cozy and really conforms to the special shape of each sleeper’s curves. In the words of the folks at Coop Home Goods, “it’s like a hug for your whole body.”
In this review, I’ll definitely be hugging this pillow; but I’m going to test it in every position just to be sure that we don’t miss out on anything this big, comfy sleep accessory has to offer. If you don’t have time to read the entire review, click here to skip to the summary.
Is the Coop Body Pillow a Good Pillow for You?
Before we get into the details, I want to give you a quick overview of who this pillow may and may not work well for.
Who should try the Coop body pillow
- Side sleepers across the board might really like this supportive body pillow!
- People with aches and pains could also really benefit from this pillow. It’s squishy and moldable, which means it will easily conform to your curves and support you in just the right way.
- People with allergies might appreciate that this pillow is hypoallergenic, dust-mite resistant, and made from CertiPUR-US® certified foam.
- Shorter people might especially like this pillow. The closer a body pillow is to your size, the easier it is to get it to conform to your curves. At 54-inches long, this pillow is an especially great fit for sleepers around 5’ to 5’5” tall. (It’s comfortable for tall sleepers too, as a tall sleeper myself I still really like this pillow!)
Who should not try the Coop body pillow
- Back sleepers probably won’t want to purchase this pillow. It takes up a lot of bedspace and isn’t really useful for someone who won’t be hugging it at night. Try one of our best pillows for back sleepers instead.
- Extra hot sleepers might prefer a more cooling option. The Coop’s cover is cooling, but the fill is not. Check out our best cooling pillows roundup to find a few options.
- Stomach sleepers will probably find this pillow a bit too lofty, and like back sleepers, won’t have much of a use for a body pillow. They should check out our best pillows for stomach sleepers instead.
What Does the Coop Body Pillow Feel Like?
This Coop Home Goods pillow is filled with a cushy blend of memory foam and microfiber to offer a nice slow response to pressure. This allows the pillow to conform to the particular shape of your body, offering pressure relief from your head to your ankles. Read on below to learn more about how it felt to me!
Coop Body Pillow Firmness
This pillow has a soft to medium feel and is super huggable! It’s an adjustable pillow, which means you can remove the filling as needed to make it easier to get it to conform to your body exactly how you’d like it to.
At first, I was surprised by how soft this pillow is, it really compressed under my head so I wasn’t sure how well it would work as a support pillow. But I ended up really appreciating its soft feel! This pillow was easy to snuggle, but kept my head, neck, and hips really well-supported.
Coop Body Pillow Loft
This pillow has a loft, or height, of about 7 inches, which is great for side sleepers who need a higher loft to prevent any soreness around the head, neck, and shoulders. But since this pillow’s fill is adjustable (you can add or remove fill for a higher or lower loft) you can choose any loft you’d like! An adjustable loft is a great perk for a body pillow, because you’ll be able to customize it.
A lofty pillow with a soft to medium-firm feel works especially well in certain sleeping positions (and not so well in others), so I want to run through how this body pillow felt in a few different positions below!
Side — I slid onto my side and used the top of the pillow to rest my head, held the upper portion under my arm, and wrapped my leg around the lower portion. I felt totally supported by this pillow from my head to my feet. Because it’s adjustable, I decided to reach in and move more of the pillow’s fill toward the top so that my head and neck could have that extra bit of support in this position.
Back — To test this pillow on my back, I tossed the pillow up toward the head of the bed so that it spanned the width of the mattress. This pillow’s loft and soft-medium support offered great pressure relief in this position. The memory foam offered my head a nice sink into the pillow, and my posture felt healthy and aligned. But, especially if you share a bed, I don’t think this pillow is a great option for back sleepers. You’re not getting the full benefits of a body pillow using it this way and it takes up a lot of bedspace.
Stomach — Moving into the prone position did not feel as natural, and I didn’t love using a lofty body pillow for this sleep style. When sleeping on my stomach, I like a soft, shapeable pillow that’s easy to flatten. Sleeping on my stomach with the Coop Home Goods body pillow kind of made me feel like I was drowning in pillow!
Under the Arm — Ultimately, I think this pillow is versatile and can provide great comfort and balanced pressure relief for back and side sleepers. That being said, I think the best use of this body pillow is to wrap yourself around it and hug it all night long. The blend of fiber and foam offered nice moldability, and it was easy for me to shape this pillow into the loft that best accommodated my body’s position. All in all, a great option for hugging under the arm!
Between the Legs — I especially love that I can hug this pillow while using it between my legs. This pillow felt great between my legs and really kept my spine neutrally aligned from head-to-toe. Since this pillow’s shredded memory foam fill is easily adjustable, it’s easy to get just the right amount of fluff between your knees.
What is the Coop Body Pillow Made Of?
Next up, let’s break down each layer of this shredded memory foam pillow to give you a better idea of what you’ll be sleeping on! This pillow has an outer cover, inner cover, and internal fill. I’ll go over each layer below.
Outer Cover — This pillow’s outer cover is made of a bamboo rayon and polyester blend. This cover is incredibly soft and adds some nice breathability to the pillow. It’s also moisture-wicking and hypoallergenic. This removable cover is also machine washable, which is a nice perk (especially because it can be tough to find a body pillow pillowcase).
Inner Cover — Below that is an inner cover made of polyester. This cover also has a zipper, which means you can open it up to remove (or re-add) filling to adjust the pillow to your preferred sleep position and preferences.
Fill — This pillow is filled with a blend of memory foam and microfiber. This fill is designed to make the pillow shapeable, breathable, and body-conforming. The soft, shapeable nature of this pillow makes it easy to fold, so that sleepers can achieve different levels of support. It also makes the pillow great for supporting sleepers with neck pain or back pain!
Is the Coop Body Pillow Good for Hot Sleepers?
The Coop body pillow’s materials feature some cooling capabilities. The Viscose rayon fabric used in the Coop pillow’s cover is incredibly cooling. Adjustable fill pillows are also more cooling than solid foam pillows.
However, memory foam and microfiber are not the most cooling pillow fill materials. Even though the Coop’s pillow cover is cooling and it’s filled with cross-cut memory foam instead of solid foam, these fill materials do restrict some airflow. All in all, I’d say it’s an averagely cooling pillow.

All in all, I really liked this pillow! I think it’s a high-quality memory foam body pillow that provides true full-body support. Its snuggly adjustable fill really cushioned my pressure points. And since it’s a high-loft pillow, the Coop did a great job keeping my spine neutrally aligned.
I also loved this pillow’s cover fabric. It’s soft, removable, and machine-washable, which means that I don’t think you need to use a case or pillow protector on top of this body pillow. I also appreciated that it was moisture-wicking and hypoallergenic.
Coop Body Pillow Policies and FAQs
Does this pillow come with a trial period?
Yes, the Coop body pillow is offered with a 100-night sleep trial. Coop’s return policy offers a full refund for any pillows returned during this window.
How will the Coop body pillow ship?
The Coop body pillow ships free in the contiguous United States. Coop only ships within the USA, but you can have a Coop pillow shipped to Canada through Amazon!
Is the Coop body pillow machine washable?
Yes! This pillow is machine washable. You’ll need to separate the inner pillow from the outer cover before washing either item. But because this pillow is so large, Coop suggests using a commercial sized washer and dryer to wash the inner pillow. They also caution that drying the internal fill could take several dry cycles.
