We decided to add this in for users who prefer softer pillows than our four-inch pillows on our list. This beauty is only three inches thick, so it delivers a squishier experience when in use.
While lumbar support pillows on our list are already affordable as it is, AmazonBasics is lower than its competitors price-point wise. If you’re not looking for anything fancy and you’re simply happy with extra padding on your chair to make it more comfortable, this is your best bet.
In contrast to our other top picks, this compressed the most as it squished down to a third of the pillow’s width or two inches in thickness. Due to how cushiony it feels, we often forget it was on the chair, but it gives appropriate support nonetheless.
Props to AmazonBasics for the soft cover that makes it easy to remove and insert the foam for washing, the cover’s stretchiness is definitely a plus in this aspect. The cover, however, is as thin as polyester, so its longevity is something to keep an eye out for.
This is backed with a one-year warranty, which sits in the middle in terms of length. It is longer than LoveHome’s 60-day replacement warranty though, which is nice.
Why Do We Love It?
- The cheapest lumbar support on the list
- Softer and cushiony feel
- One-year warranty
- Easy-to-remove cover
Minor Setbacks But Not Deal Breakers
The strap is too short for the lumbar to fit on your car seat, so you’re limited to only using it for office and standard chairs. What’s more, this is not made for heavier people as it’s too soft and lacks the thickness to support the user, but it does give enough support to prevent back pain for users with smaller build and lighter weight.
You can really see the price difference on the pillow’s strap, AmazonBasics lumbar support only has one strap and it does not have extensions to boot. It’s worth mentioning though that the strap delivers enough elasticity to cater to chairs that are 17 inches in width.
Sure enough, it does have several setbacks, but it’s reliable lumbar support for people who simply want to enhance their work experience at a low cost.
