Kally body pillow composition

Kally Sleep is a tried & trusted brand with a great selection of innovative sleep products. 🔬

After launching in 2018, the Kally body pillow was the first product created by Kally Sleep.

We were thrilled to get our hands on this pillow to try for ourselves!


Kally Body Pillow
The Kally body pillow comes with a removable cover.

But what is it made from?

The Kally body pillow includes:

  • Hollowfibre filling
  • Polycotton inner layer
  • 50% cotton & 50% polyester case

The Kally body pillow is a long oblong-shaped pillow that you can adjust to your sleeping style.

The cover feels soft, and the pillow has a squishy medium-soft feel.

So, is the Kally Body pillow suitable for you? 👇

How do you use the Kally body pillow?

The Kally Sleep body pillow can be used in various ways to accommodate your individual sleeping preference.

Designed by osteopaths, the pillow has been known to ease fibromyalgia symptoms and acid reflux.

We tested the Kally body pillow in multiple sleeping positions. ✅

Cuddle and sleep

The most common way to use a body pillow for side sleepers is to lay it out flat and hug your body around it.


Hugging the Kally Body Pillow
The Kally body pillow was comfortable on the knees.

We slept this way for several nights and found it the most comfortable.

We think this would also be a popular sleeping style for stomach sleepers who typically lay on their front and hug their pillow.

We found sleeping with the pillow helped reduce pressure on the spine and kept the body aligned.

It also relieved pressure from the knees as the pillow moulded around the joints. 🥰

U-shaped sleep

Another way we found this pillow comfortable was by shaping the pillow into a U-shape to create the perfect side sleeper pillow.

In this position, the Kally body pillow kept the spine straight.

This provided additional support for the back and head whilst relieving pressure from the shoulder.

If you move around a lot during sleep, this position nestles you in and keeps you still for uninterrupted sleep. 😴

Back-support sleep

For back sleepers, we found curving the pillow around the shoulders worked best.


Back sleeper on Kally Body Pillow
The Kally Sleep body pillow was supportive in the back sleeping position.

In this position, the shoulders and head are fully supported. 💪

It also helps to keep the spine lifted and straight with the neck.

The pillow absorbs pressure from the shoulders, and we felt a weightless comfort.

Prop-up cushion

Finally, the Kally body pillow doesn’t have to be for sleeping.

It also works great for sitting up and reading in bed or relaxing on your phone before hitting the hay. 🤳


Reading with the Kally Body Pillow
The Kally body pillow can make reading in bed more comfortable.

The Kally Sleep body pillow supports the shoulders and reduces back and neck pain caused by leaning over a good book. 📚

If you have a metal or wooden headboard, this could be a great way of adding extra comfort when you sit up in bed.

Other ways you can use a body pillow

But the Kally Body pillow is highly versatile and can be used in a number of different ways.

You can:

  • Prop it under your knees
  • Rest it behind your back
  • Use it as a cushion on your sofa

The ways you can use your Kally Sleep body pillow are endless; it just depends on your individual comfort needs.

Overall, we experienced a deeper sleep after using this body support pillow. ✅

How firm is the Kally body pillow?

The Kally body pillow had a medium, squishy feel that wasn’t overly firm. 🧸

Its ample sausage-like structure adapts into many shapes without too much trouble.

The Kally body pillow had a medium firmness.

A firmer pillow would have less bend, so we felt it was the perfect firmness for versatility.

Hollowfibre generally has a soft and fluffy feel but can also go a bit flat over time.

We recommend fluffing this pillow regularly to help it keep its natural shape.

Hollowfibre pillows vs memory foam pillows graphic
Memory foam tends to last longer than hollowfibre.

Alternatively, a memory foam pillow will feel firmer but should stay in shape without regular fluffing. ☁️

Does the Kally body pillow sleep hot?

If you like cuddling during sleep but feel too hot, the Kally body pillow can be a cooler cuddle-buddy. 🐧

The cotton blend in the cover is breathable with moisture-wicking properties for those who sweat.

The Kally body pillow has some cooling properties.

However, sleeping with the Kally body pillow and your partner can feel like there are three people in the bed.

On warm nights, you might feel yourself pushing the support pillow away for a bit of breathing room.

We didn’t feel overly warm with the Kally body pillow but would agree this huggable pillow is a better companion for cooler nights.

However, some of us sleep hotter than others. 🤔

We all have individual needs when it comes to temperature.

If you’re an excessively hot sleeper, consider the Kally sports recovery pillow instead.

The main difference between this and the Kally Sleep body pillow is that it includes a breathable Tencel cover with temperature-regulating properties. 🌡

Kally body pillow cover

One of the Kally body pillow's best features is the removable and washable polycotton cover.

The cover is made with 50% cotton and 50% polyester.

kally body pillow cover material

Polyester fabric is known for being wrinkle-resistant, fast-drying, durable and stretchy.

Alternatively, cotton is naturally hypoallergenic and breathable, which helps keep moisture at bay. 💦

The cover has a soft feel, and we love the grey jersey cover colour.

The Kally Body pillow cover is also available in blue and white, and teddy fleece sherpa grey, pink, and cream.

Polycotton inner layer

Underneath the removable cover is an attached inner layer. 🔎

Like the cover, the inner layer is made from a blend of cotton and polyester.

This layer helps protect the Kally body pillow, similar to a pillow protector.

A pillow protector helps prevent moisture and bacteria from getting inside the pillow. ☔

It can also prevent accidental stains, but it won’t fully protect the pillow from harsh spills.

So, what do you do if you spill something on your Kally body pillow?

Can you wash the Kally pillow cover?

The Kally body pillow cover is machine-washable. 🧼

It was relatively easy to unzip the Kally body pillow and remove the cover.

Once the cover is removed, you can pop it into the washing machine and wash it at 30°C.

In fact, you can even wash the entire pillow at 40°C to remove any unwanted bacteria.

We recommend washing the pillowcase cover as regularly as your bedding and giving the pillow itself a wash every 6 months. 🕑

The Kally body pillow can be fully machine-washed.

However, if you wash the pillow too often, it may lose some of its integral structure.

Is the Kally body pillow good for pregnancy?

The Kally body pillow can help many of those seeking extra sleep support.

But it also has a reputation for being a great sleeping aid during pregnancy.

Since we’re not “expecting”, we thought it was best to look into real pregnant women’s experiences with this as a pregnancy pillow. 🤰

The Kally body pillow can provide extra support for the bump during pregnancy.

We had a look at the many positive reviews on the Kally Sleep website.

Here’s what they said:

  • “I was suffering with back pain and hip pain due to my pregnancy and the Kally body pillow has solved the problem! I would highly recommend it!”
  • “My new best friend! A life saver in my early pregnancy when I’m usually a front sleeper!”
  • “Very comfortable to sleep with during pregnancy. Releases tension in my back and legs. Highly recommended!”

The Kally Sleep body pillow could also be used as a nursing pillow after the baby is born. 🍼

The Kally body pillow can support your back and the baby when nursing.

However, the Kally U-Shaped pregnancy pillow is also a good alternative.

The ergonomic U-shaped design of this pillow provides support for the back and the bump.

What size is the Kally body pillow?

The Kally Sleep body pillow measures 160 x 30 x 35 cm (62.9 x 11.8 x 13.7 inches).

During testing, it felt like the ideal size, neither too big nor too small. ✅

However, whether or not this size works for you will depend on your height and sleep requirements.

The Kally body pillow weighs 1.8kg (3.9 lbs) and feels pretty light and easy to move around.

The Kally body pillow fits back in its original bag.

If you want to travel with the Kally body pillow, you could easily pop it back into the square bag it was delivered in.

Kally Body pillow prices

Kally body pillows aren’t the cheapest body pillows available.

However, they’re also not extortionate.

Overall, the Kally Sleep body pillow is good value for money. 💰

The Kally body pillow is reasonably priced.

It includes free delivery, a 14-day trial, and comes with a free pillowcase.

You might even find a Kally body pillow sale to help you save a few pennies.

We liked how the pillow was packaged, as you can use the bag again if you want to travel with your Kally Body Pillow. 🧳

But what happens if you change your mind about the Kally Sleep body pillow?

Does the Kally body pillow come with a trial?

The Kally body pillow comes with a 14-night sleep trial. ⏳

This means you can sleep with your Kally body pillow for up to 14 nights to see if it’s right for you.

You can send it back if you decide the Kally body pillow isn’t a good fit.

How do I return my Kally body pillow?

Kally Sleep is partnered with the Marylebone Project, a charity for homeless women who need a helping hand. 🏩

pillow trial graphic
Kally pillows include a 14-night sleep trial.

So, if after 14 days you decide you don’t like your Kally pillow, send it to the Marylebone Project address on the Kally returns page.

This prevents unnecessary delivery trips that increase the carbon footprint, but you can also be 100% certain that the pillow is going to someone in need.

Once the charity informs Kally Sleep that they have received your item, a refund will be processed. 💳

An important note: The return cost has to be paid for by the customer. However, since the pillow is going to a good cause, we think this is a fair compromise.

How long do Kally body pillows last?

The Kally Sleep body pillow includes a 2-year guarantee.

This means you’ll be fully protected against manufacturing faults for 2 years.

This can include the pillow losing its shape or seams coming apart.

If you find a fault, contact Kally Sleep as soon as possible.

What else does Kally Sleep sell?

Kally sells an entire range of sleep-enhancing products, including these Kally Sleep Gummies that came with our pillow. 🍬

We hope to test even more Kally Sleep products in future and let you know our thoughts on them!

The Kally body pillow is an excellent value-for-money body pillow that can provide full-body support during sleep.

This includes:

  • Those who wake up with back pain
  • Those suffering from fibromyalgia or acid reflux
  • Pregnant women
  • Nursing mothers
  • Those that like to sit up in bed
