Dog Bone Pillows

Updated on April 14, 2018

Neck Pillows for Reading, Travel, Comfort

Dog bone pillows are, well, pillows shaped like a dog bone. I have one that I use every night when I read in bed and sometimes when I lay on the couch to read. It props me up at the perfect angle, supporting my neck while I read my book.

Since getting Progressive lenses in my glasses, I've found reading even trickier. I now have reading glasses, so with them and my dog bone pillow, I'll all set!

These supportive neck pillows are great for long car trips or plane rides too. The strain of sitting for a long time is eased with a comfortable support in just the right place, like your neck.

Here's a photo of my trusty dog bone pillow. I love it! I use it each night when I lay in bed and read. I sometimes also use it to prop up my head on the couch while watching television.

      Love the animal neck pillows. I carry one of these (not the animal kind) on every flight I go on. Makes a world of difference.

      YES! Mine isn't dog bone shaped. Might be better for reading in bed if it was though!
