I’m on a mission to find the best pregnancy pillows that can help pregnant people sleep comfortably throughout the night. The Queen Rose full-body support pregnancy pillow is featured on many lists of top pregnancy pillows, so I wanted to put it to the test. After having a chance to sleep with and use it, I can see why! It’s supportive and has a variety of options for covers; all of these covers are fairly easy to remove, which makes for straightforward cleaning.
While I really liked the Queen Rose pillow, I had a couple of reservations after using it overnight. To learn more about the pillow and my overall thoughts, read on for the full review.

The full-body pillow is a U-shape, and its dimensions are 51″ x 31.5″ x 7.9″. It’s filled with polyester fiber filling for a down-alternative-like feel. It should be able to support the head, neck, back, and stomach and rest in between the knees to help with hip alignment.
The pillow cover on my pillow is 100 percent organic cotton and removable. Queen Rose says the dyes they use for their covers are “naturally free from any toxic substances and contaminants that could harm humans.” There are also velour and jersey knit material options available.
There is a zipper at the top of the pillow that allows the cover to be smoothly unzipped and removed to machine wash and line-dry or air-dry – be sure to avoid heated drying for risk of shrinking.
The pillow is pretty full, the total loft is nearly 8” and when a pregnant woman lays her head down on the pillow, it will sink down some. The filling is not machine washable, but there is a zipper that provides access to the polyester fill, which technically makes the pillow adjustable. The ability to reach into the pillow and remove tufts of filling if desired is an option.
Who Makes It?
It’s a little tough to track down who makes this pillow. The Queen Rose Pillows website appears to belong to a company named Meiz Sourcing Inc., but there’s very little information about this company online. The company also appears to be linked to another sourcing company, ITarget Sourcing Co. Ltd, that is based in Hong Kong.
As noted above, the cover is removable and machine washable. I’d recommend washing the cover on a delicate cycle and then allowing it to air dry (or use the dryer with a “no heat” setting.) It’s important to avoid heat drying, as this could shrink the cover enough that it might not fit back onto the pillow. The filling is not machine washable.
- Takes the place of buying/using multiple pillows
- Can be used during pregnancy and post-partum
- Soft organic cotton or other cover options (and color options)
- Removable cover that is washable
- Affordable ($50 to $60)
- Two size options for more length
- Extra covers available separately
- Large and takes up a lot of room in the bed
- If the individual is tall, the Standard size may not be long enough. I’d suggest going with the King size over the Standard for more length
- The “legs” on the pillow are not contoured and can move or slip out overnight
I’ve just entered my third trimester and am excited to review a full-body pregnancy pillow that can not only support my back but also start supporting my growing bump.
Removing the cover is easy thanks to the zipper at the top because individuals can unzip nearly the full width of the pillow at the top and don’t have to work so hard to get the “legs” of the pillow in and out of the cover. I would give the cover removal/re-cover process a 6 out of 10 for difficulty.
The 100% organic cotton cover is soft but not super soft. I think I would choose either the grey velour or jersey knit option next time for some added softness.
In terms of keeping it clean, I just added the cotton cover into a delicate cycle with some other clothes and then let it air dry outside or in the dryer under a “no heat” setting. My cover was fully dry within a day. Avoid heat so there’s no risk of shrinking with the fabric — it’s not a loose cover, so there’s not a lot of room for it to shrink and still fit.
Overall, I like the feel of the polyester fiber filling. It’s soft but supportive, and I feel like I get the most benefit out of the pillow when I use it sitting up (propped up behind me) or when I’m sleeping and it’s supporting my head and neck and between my knees.
Here are a couple of things I noticed during my experience with the pillow that I think are worth pointing out:
- I’m 5′ 7″ and there were times during the night when I could have used some extra length, specifically in keeping the pillow between my knees to support my hips. Luckily, there is a King version that is longer. I’d recommend that for taller moms-to-be.
- I mentioned that the filling is soft and it is supportive, but after a few nights, I noticed there were little areas where the filling separated and allowed for the “legs” of the pillow to turn out away from me. This meant that during the night I wasn’t able to feel the support on my back when I rolled over — the pillow had moved far enough away that I had to reach for it and readjust (which sort of takes away from the point of having the U-shape).
I can see why the Queen Rose Full Body Pregnancy Pillow is such a popular full body pillow.
It’s very versatile, not only in its functionality but also thanks to all the available fabric options. I am able to use it during the day to support me while I work and at night to keep me comfortable on my side. I know that once my second child arrives, I’ll be using it to keep us comfortable as well.
I love that taller or larger moms-to-be can get a King size option for more length and that the cover is zippered and easier to get on and off compared to other options I’ve looked at. It’s also not terribly expensive. It’s around $50 to $60, but it will replace the need for multiple pillows!
