📍HONORABLE MENTION The BBL Pillow by YesIndeed
After a Brazilian Butt Lift, it’s very important to avoid sitting or lying on one’s buttocks for a few weeks. However, that might prove a bit difficult when resuming normal daily activities like working, commuting, or attending class.
A BBL pillow will help you to sit for intervals of time without minimizing the results of your Brazilian butt lift.
How do they work?
BBL pillows are designed to help off-load the pressure on your butt and put it on your thighs. This way, the buttocks are elevated and won’t touch any surface.
This is important because, in the weeks after a BBL, the transferred fat cells are very delicate and prone to pressure, which can cause the fat to disappear.
Therefore, patients are usually encouraged to avoid sitting during the weeks following the procedure.
However, life does not stop, which means that you may need to sit for intervals of time during those weeks. Say, while working or going out.
In those situations, an off-loading pillow might be of great help.

What to look for in a BBL pillow
If you’re looking to buy a BBL recovery pillow, here are some of the things you need to know to make the right decision:
1. The Shape
Look for a pillow with an ergonomic shape to accommodate your tights.
2. The Material
Should be comfortable and sturdy.
☞ Keep in mind that, usually, off-loading pillows tend to fall on the firm side because they must be able to withstand the weight of the body without losing their shape or flattening.
A flat BBL pillow is a pillow that may not be able to do its number 1 job: to keep your butt from touching any surface.
Most BBL cushions are made out of a combination of foam and memory foam. Memory foam, or compressed foam, is a type of polyurethane that you might also know as “viscoelastic foam” because of its elasticity and viscosity. It was discovered by NASA back in the 60s, and today it’s used a lot in comfort items like mattresses and pillows.
3. The Cover
Pillows with detachable covers will be the easiest to wash.
The most common cover materials in BBL pillows are microfibers. Microfibers are fine synthetic fibers with a diameter finer than the diameter of a strand of silk. The most common types are made from polyamides, polyesters, and polypropylene.
Microfiber fabrics are soft to the touch, lightweight, breathable, stain-proof, easy to clean, and wrinkle and wear-resistant.
4. The portability
Look for a pillow that is lightweight and includes a handle, because you might need to carry it from your home to your car, to your office.
Some manufacturers even include a bag with their product for maximum discretion and comfort.
