comfort, at last!

tavio cushion from habitat

since i was young i’ve had problems with my hips and back. (well, all my joints and apparently anywhere there’s bones which is a vast majority of the body obviously!) as well as it being incredibly tiring at times, it’s really painful, especially in the winter. two things that really help are staying warm and good back support. i’m sure that wasn’t the intention of these cushions*, but they seem to do something magical to my back that stops it from hurting quite so much.

i love the large size – they’re 45 x 45cm – and they seem to mould well to whatever position you’re sitting in. i love the bold pattern (of course i do!) and despite not being the biggest fan of orange, it’s a really nice shade. we currently have one on a chair, and the other on the sofa. it even goes well with the other cushion on there and the throw ..which i actually kind of dislike but you gotta let your partner have something eh? ;)

i’m actually very picky with cushions and pillows in regards to softness and comfort. they have to be just so. so believe me, if there was something to find fault with, i would have done so. they’re also house guest approved, so double thumbs up to this bold, patterned cushion.

*the cushions were sent to me to review, and as always all words are my own.

      when i took them out of the packing i actually said 'woah!' as they were so bold. these have feathers in an inner pillow so maybe that helps with moulding to your back shape? i dunno but these are great for my back it seems.

    Oh no, I have back issues to so I feel you on this. Sometimes it's enough for me to just not leave the house because it's so achy. Which is ridiculous because we're not 72 years old yet. That's awesome you found miracle cushions though- and so cute to boot! I love the colorful, happy pattern of them :)

      i wasn't expecting them to be as big as they are (i didn't look at the dimensions properly) but i'm so glad they're a good size!
