I bought this pillow because I wanted a heavier pregnancy pillow that would not move around and actually support me. On that count, it has been great. I sleep on the top of the pillow though. It is not ergonomically friendly for your neck. The seam of the pillow on the inside of the curve is stretched taught and digs into your neck. Other pregnancy pillows sew in an extra panel at the neck area so it molds to your neck instead of digging in. It’s the same concept as adding a panel into the crotch area of leggings. I flip the pillow upside down and use my own pillow for my head. Works but I wish this one did it all for how expensive it is.
I was looking for an all organic pillow for pregnancy. I thought this one was, but just the cover is. Other wise it is a greta pillow and I would recommend. I would probably returned, but it took about 2 months to get it after I ordered it.
The zipper and watching the cover is super easy fyi
Love the pillow. So I invested in a 2nd cover. I've now mastered getting the pillow into the pillow case but that zipper failed the first time I rotated back to the original pillow case. If not for this I would give the 5 star rating. We'll see how much it affects my feelings about the Yana 360 pillow. If customer service wants to reach out they are welcome to.

This is a great pillow that keeps form and makes me feel secure at night, which has helped a lot during pregnancy and constantly moving around. I don't really feel a cooling effect per se, but also don't feel like this pillow makes me hotter or radiates heat. So, temp is manageable. It's also a bit bulky and very difficult to wrap up in the decorative knot that they have in advertisement. I often just leave it on the bed as is and have just come to terms with my bed looking less than put together while pregnant.
The one thing I will say is that if you buy the cover for this pillow, it is a royal pain to put it on this pillow. There's a part in the arms that bulges out more, and it's just super rough maneuvering this pillow and trying to get the cover on. It also moves around a lot at night (which is weird cause it feels so tight while putting it on) and the soft top part does not stay put. It's near impossible trying to adjust the cover when it's on the pillow. The only reason I bought the cover was so I could wash it and keep clean, but I oftentimes just want to leave it on cause I fear having to try and tackle this thing to put on the cover. It's also a bit pricey, at around $90 which I think is a bit much for a cover.
Overall I would recommend for women that are worried about being hot and like a firm support pillow while pregnant. It has helped a ton with providing support at night. Definitely will give you comfort, but if you're looking for something to easily keep clean or put away every night after use you might want something different.
Lost my husband of 54 years and miss everything about him ! Now that I have a YANA body pillow, my bed is not such a lonely place. I am sleeping so much better cuddled up with it.
I bought two pillows so my partner and I could both have one (and they wouldn't steal mine). They are lovely and enveloping and comforting and supportive. We might need a bigger bed now because two pillows on a queen size is just a bit too much.
Yana 360° Body Pillow
I am a side sleeper and have been looking for a pillow to accommodate that for the longest. I ran across this pillow and order it along with the cooling gel. The first night was the best sleep I’ve ever had! Would have given it five stars but was disappointed because the gel is not cool at all! That was a waste of money and is the reason I purchased it was for hot flashes!
Useful but could use a cover
I do love this pillow and have been using it every night for a few weeks now, but I have two big gripes and one small gripe.
1) The seam that runs along the inner edge of the pillow is uncomfortable unless you really push the pillow up against something so you can get the arms scrunched up enough to relax the tension on it. It presses into the muscle between neck and shoulder.
2) I got the cooling gel and it's rather hard. It's just a very firm pillow as a whole. I've been squishing it around and it IS softer now, but is still far from the most comfortable pillow I've ever laid my head on.
3) Small gripe: We need more pillowcase color options! This white/cream just isn't for me. I'd prefer something darker. The pillowcase itself is very comfortable on my skin.
Ultimately, I don't regret this purchase. I've always struggled to sleep without something to kind of sleep up against and I love this one because there's something on both sides to do that with no matter how many times I toss and turn at night. I don't wake up to find myself uncomfortable because I've turned over and left my pillow on my other side. I don't have to either turn back over onto a side I don't want to sleep on anymore or wake up even more to drag a large pillow over me. It's already there no matter which way I face! My Xolo likes it too. If he gets cold at night, he just burrows all 65 lbs of himself in between me and one of the arms of the pillow.
The pillow has been a game-changer during my wife's pregnancy and has made sleeping on her side so much more comfortable without having to have weight and discomfort on her shoulder. For the first time ever she has been able to sleep in one position for 3 or more hours straight before needing to change sides. One minor inconvenience is that it is heavy to maneuver when changing positions. The biggest downside though is the synthetic smell of the latex. Quite strong and probably being pregnant even more so.
as advertised. It's comfortable and versatile. I love it.
I'm so happy with this pillow. The first night I started using it my back pain disappeared. My only issue is that I'm so comfy I never want to get out of bed in the morning 😉
My only regret is not ordering it sooner! I love the pillow. It’s comfy, firm, versatile, and supportive.
Yana 360° Body Pillow
I’ve had the yana body pillow for a few months now during my pregnancy and it is beyond amazing. Very soft and has kept its firmness so far with just fluffing every now and again. Worth the price.
Pillow is so great, two negatives is why I’m giving it a 4 star. It’s stuffing hunched up in places and it’s hard to adjust/spread out. I also have to sleep with my feet resting on the head pad as the head is stuffed too much and hurts my neck. Have to use it to sleep with backwards lol
Returned unopened. Waiting for refund.
I have loved this pillow since the first moment I used it. I got it at around 17 weeks to try to prepare myself for side sleeping, since I’m a religious back sleeper. I was already starting to have shoulder and neck pain from trying to sleep on my side without a pillow. When I laid down on this pillow, it felt like a hug. It is heavy and substantial, which is amazing because it won’t slide out from behind me or compress to nothing in the night. It’s so much more convenient than trying to wrestle separate pillows around. I’m now 22 weeks, and starting to show and I couldn’t imagine this pregnancy without it. We’ll worth the cost to me!
The pillow losses it’s shape.
I have always struggled getting comfortable as a side sleeper, using multiple pillows. Ordered this pillow, and got a bit teased by my wife for buying a “pillow for pregnant ladies.” It has been a game changer for my sleep and conforms extremely well to my sleeping position. Even caught my wife trying it out - probably won’t be long before she gets one as well.
This pillow is so comfortable and has really changed my sleep during my pregnancy. I was shoving pillows everywhere prior to getting this. I did a lot of research and the company’s information on the function and materials used resonated with me more than what I had been seeing on Amazon. The price is worth it.
It never gets hot, stays firm and really wraps around my entire body and is super soft. I was struggling to sleep before I got this pillow and have not had a sleepless night since. Thank you for creating such an amazing product.
I sleep on my side, and as I have aged, my knees hurt when one is on top of the other. I love my Yana because I can use it to separate my knees. The other “leg” of the Yana curves around my back, and that makes me feel hugged.
The only drawback that I find is that the Yana raises my head a little bit too high.
