Comfort Dreams makes a wedge arrangement for back and leg support while sleeping, reading, or watching television. And the Hughes boys could not be more conflicted in our opinions about Comfort Dreams’ endeavor, wildly positive reviews from James and John, equally vocal opposition from Mike and Dave. (The more skeptical of the bros, Curtis and Joel, would not even try the wedge.) We did all four agree that the wedges work better for wide-awake relaxation than for deep and dreamless sleep.
In these cases, sleep seems to come faster, last longer, and refresh better in the starlit interim.
Comfort Dreams Zero Gravity Adjustable 3-Piece Wedge System Specs:
The specifics: a bit bulky, difficult to store, but firm, mighty firm in its support; originally designed – here we go again – for NASA, built of “space-age foam that cradles your body”; designed to reduce pressure points that produce tossing and turning, turning and tossing some more.
The Hughes take on the specifics: “mighty firm” above was insufficiently descriptive for two of us – “uncomfortably firm,” the right words for Dave and Mike, who believe that NASA got it wrong for the earthbound on this sleep system. Do not look for “memory foam” here, as you normally think of that sleep-inducing generic product. The foam doesn’t so much cradle as soften perhaps, but certainly not the enveloping wrap that cradling implies.
Comfort Dreams Zero Gravity Adjustable 3-Piece Wedge System Review and Overall Rating
We Hughess – divided among ourselves – sought the experience of several friends and neighbors who, we knew, suffered from both sleep issues and some severe surgical aftermath. Their counsel too was far from unanimous but certainly more affirmative than not. One buddy, enduring a series of spinal surgeries, called the Comfort Dreams wedges a “must have.” Another friend found multiple sorts of relief: from chronic back pain, less sinus congestion and, therefore, less sleep apnea.
Another, suffering from chronic sinusitis, found the body positioning of the wedge system to work well in dealing with that nasty condition.
Still, a matter of opinion.
The Comfort Dreams wedge sleep system comes along at varied price points in the neighborhood of two-hundred dollars. Accordingly, the brothers suggest that – unless your sleep suffers as a result of any of the above medical maladies – you try other, less expensive sleep-inducing alternatives before springing for this system.
