There were three in the bed and the little one said: “roll over!”
Only there was no third person, just me, my wife and the Kally Body Pillow. Having started out a bit sceptical when I first read about this ultimate side sleeper pillow I had to try it for myself to see what all the hype was about.
I loved it, easily the best body pillow out there, it’s really plump but soft enough to be really comfortable to hold between your legs and it moulds perfectly to your body shape.
It’s orthopaedic to help support all your joints, whether it’s leg pain, back pain, neck pain or hip pain the Kally Sleep Body Pillow can help you sleep soundly throughout the whole night.
The medium firmness makes it really nice just to hold as well, there’s something comforting about having a big squishy sleep pillow you can hold through the night.
The first thing I was really drawn to with this pillow was the super-soft jersey cotton cover. It feels really nice to cuddle next to.
It is an elongated cylindrical shape to support side sleepers in the foetal position. This is the best position to not only support your head and neck but also your full body. The shape means it takes up less space in the bed as well and can be stored away easier if not in use.
The filling is cosy and soft to rest on but also holds its shape well. It’s lighter than a memory foam pillow so easier to move throughout the night if you’re prone to tossing and turning. Just make sure you fluff up the pillow regularly so that it keeps its shape for longer periods.

The inside is a hollowfibre filling packed into the brim leaving you with a medium firmness that you can rest your head comfortably on alongside supporting your belly and it’s long enough to wrap your legs around.
The shape has been ergonomically designed by experts to make it supportive so you sleep soundly through the whole night.
The medium firmness hollowfibre filling fully adapts to your sleeping position and levels out your knees and hips to help alleviate pressure in the joints. What’s more is that this fibre interior is packed firm enough to really encompass the head and neck, taking pressure off your shoulders and reducing neck pain.
The inside is machine washable at 40C and it dries quickly and re-shapes easily.
The filling has also been treated to be hypoallergenic which is a plus for me as I’m asthmatic.
The medium firm packing of this bolster pillow makes it a bit awkward initially when you lie down to get cosy at night. I did find it took a bit of time to adjust myself to the height of the fibre interior.
However, after a couple of nights of getting used to it, I found that I gradually adopted a sleep position that led to me getting a full 8 hours uninterrupted sleep. I think this pillow performs better over longer periods of use, so if it feels funny on day one, don’t lose hope for that good night’s sleep!
The pillow cover is made of a soft cotton jersey material that is kind to the skin and soft to hold on to. The fabric not only feels nice to cuddle but is also breathable.
When mine arrived it had a bit of a strange smell that I couldn’t place, it was in plastic so I think it may have been that, but I washed the cover at 30C with a normal load and the smell went away fine.
The cover has a convenient button fastener so can be easily removed for washing or to replace.
The colours currently available are charcoal grey, pure white, heathered grey, stone blue, cream and navy blue.
I went for the charcoal grey which is a lovely deep, warm colour. If you have several sets of bedding don’t worry! You can buy extra pillowcases with the pillow and this gets you £5 off. I also ordered a cream cover to match my other duvet set.
Benefits of a Body Pillow
Body aches and pains can cause poor sleep quality. If you suffer from fibromyalgia or any other issue with key joints then you likely find it very difficult to get a full night of uninterrupted sleep.
The team at Kally have been working with Osteopaths from Harley street to try to understand what causes these issues and how we can best remedy them. It turns out that your pillow doesn’t provide full neck support then this can, in turn, cause a whole host of issues from neck pain to headaches and even nerve pain or pin and needles in your arms and hands.
