If you enjoy reading, watching TV or gaming while in bed, this kind of pillow will give your back, neck and arms the support it needs to stay comfortable. We’ve rounded up 10 of the best pillows with arms to help you find the perfect one for your home.
10 Best Pillows with Arms That Are Full of Style
1. Clara Clark Reading Pillow
The Clara Clark pillow is every reader’s dream come true. The backrest is 31” high, so it provides full support. Thanks to the included head/neck pillow and arms, this pillow provides support for your entire upper body:
Plus, the ultra-soft plush and breathable material makes this pillow feel like you’re on cloud nine. Clara Clark’s Reading Pillow has built-in pockets for your books and devices. It also comes with a handy leg pillow for the ultimate in comfort and support.
2. Better Homes & Gardens Furry Bed Rest Pillow
This pillow with arms from Better Homes & Gardens is like a big, soft teddy bear. The faux suede material is ultra-soft, and the neutral color makes it a perfect fit for any bedroom, living room or dorm room.
The built-in faux fur handle makes it easy to carry with you, too, so you can take your pillow wherever you go.
3. Ebern Designs Lorna Pillow
The Lorna Pillow from Ebern Designs is velvety soft and comes in more than a dozen different colors to match your home.
The pillow is made from a polyester blend for easy care. The convenient zipper makes it easy to fill the pillow with the included polyfill, and when the cover needs a good cleaning, just remove it and toss it in the washing machine.
The Lorna Pillow arrives completely deconstructed, so it’s a bit different from the usual pillow purchase. But the vacuum sealed polyfill saves on space, allowing the manufacturer to ship it in a smaller package.
And the pillow is still every bit as fluffy and comfortable as the ones that arrive pre-filled.
4. Mainstays Bed Rest Lounger
Mainstays has a cute pillow with arms that comes in a pretty mint color. The 18” back provides excellent support, and the arms also have built-in pockets for holding your phone or other items.
It even has a little built-in carrying handle, which makes it easy to use anywhere in the house.
5. Ebern Designs Pulli Pillow
The Pulli Pillow from Ebern Designs is the perfect backrest pillow for any home. It boasts a 24” backrest height, providing complete support when you’re sitting in bed. It’s great for watching TV, gaming, reading or nursing.
We love that this pillow comes with a detachable bolster pillow for extra neck support. And it comes in so many fun colors, including hot pink, maroon, purple, blue, beige, white, black and gray.
6. Grovelane Aspatria Pillow

Once you sit down, you’ll never have to get back up. It even has built-in pockets to hold your devices and keep them in easy reach.
The Aspatria pillow comes in a few colors, too, including teal blue, navy blue, dark brown, white and gray.
7. Latitude Run Milliner Pillow
The Milliner Pillow from Latitude Run can be used indoors or outdoors, making it a super versatile option. It’s ultra-big, too, with a height of 31” (with the headrest) and a width of 39.”
The microfiber cover is ultra-soft, and the crushed memory foam offers added comfort and support.

8. Quhrezw Bohemia Reading Pillow
Does your living room or bedroom have a boho style? This pillow will be the perfect addition to your space.
Quhrezw’s backrest pillows come in fun boho patterns. Because the covers are zippered, you can replace and change them whenever the mood suits you. They have more than 20 patterns available, so you’re sure to find one that you love.
Each pillow has a large back pocket and smaller pockets on each armrest.
9. Sunside Cat Reading Pillow
Looking for a cute pillow with arms? It doesn’t get more adorable than Sunside’s cat reading pillow. And yes, this pillow is made for adults.
We love the adorable smiling cat face and paw prints on each arm. It’s like being hugged by a giant cat (don’t try this at home!).
The backrest on this pillow is surprisingly tall at 22” and from one arm end to the other is about 37.”
Each armrest has a convenient built-in pocket, and the filling can be adjusted to your liking.
The Sunside cat reading pillow comes in three colors: black, pink and white.
10. Sliguy Extra Large Reading Pillow
Sliguy’s extra large reading pillow stands an impressive 31” tall (with the attached pillow) to provide full back support. We love the headrest pillow that comes with this item because it has a curved bottom and a more traditional pillow shape. It’s removable, too, so you don’t have to use it.
Like other backrest pillows, this one has a deep back pocket and pockets on each arm for easy storage of devices or whatever you want.
Because it arrives vacuum-compressed, this pillow will take a few days to expand to its full size. But once it does, you won’t be disappointed by how comfortable and supportive it is.
Sliguy’s pillow also comes in five fun colors: black, dark gray, purple, light gray and navy blue.
