The Legacy Leg Pillow is a crescent-shaped memory foam pillow that you can place between your knees and upper thighs as you sleep on your side. It's been designed to help you keep your back, hips, and spine positioned in accordance with the natural alignment of your body, so you don't wake up with aches and pains. Each of these pillows is also ventilated with air holes, an attribute that's meant to keep each one cool and dry as it rests between a user's legs.
The cost of Legacy Leg Pillow is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping, for a total price of $25.98.

If you're a side sleeper, regardless of what side you're sleeping on, you've probably been tempted to throw one leg up and over the other so it's resting further forward than that other leg. This position can be bad for the body since it causes the lower back and pelvis to twist and thereby applies pressure to the spine. However, when you have a Legacy Leg Pillow between your thighs and knees, you'll be less tempted to move your body into this particular posture. Instead, the pillow will encourage you to keep your lower back, pelvis and entire spine straight so there's no pressure on those body parts or any nearby ones. Each pillow isn't rock-hard, either, which means it'll be able to conform to the shape of your legs as it does its job.
Before you slide your Legacy Leg Pillow between your legs, lie down on one side like you normally would.
Next, slide your pillow between your thighs, with the narrower, pointier end pointing towards your feet as opposed to your head. If you've got the pillow in the right place, it should be hanging just two or three inches below your knees. Unless you have extremely short legs, it should not extend quite all the way up to your crotch in the other direction. The groove in the pillow must be directly between your two legs in order for the pillow to work properly.
After you've determined that your pillow is in the correct position, get ready to go to sleep as usual. Once you're asleep, the pillow should move with you if you toss and turn a bit, instead of sliding out from between your legs. It if happens to move, you may have to experiment with how high or how low you're positioning it.
Some similar pillows have a bulkier rectangular shape, but this one is shaped more like a crescent. This will enable it to hug the curves and contours of your body more closely, without slipping out of position, instead of feeling like a dead weight between your legs.
Each Legacy Leg Pillow is ventilated with a handful of air holes that will prevent it from becoming hot or sweaty, and therefore uncomfortable, as you use it. As air continuously flows through the pillow, the entire thing will remain cool and dry, even if you sweat in bed or sleep in a warm room.
Every one of these pillows comes in a shade of light blue, but each one also comes with a machine washable white fabric cover with a blue stripe. If you happen to get food, makeup or some other messy substance on your pillow's cover, you'll be able to remove it, toss it in the washing machine and have it clean in an hour. When it's clean, it's best to let it air-dry instead of drying it in a machine, though.
The Legacy Leg Pillow is made from memory foam that's flexible enough to bend a bit to accommodate the curves of your legs. Yet, this foam isn't so soft that it'll go flat on you while you're sleeping. Furthermore, it will never lose its crescent shape, no matter how hard you squeeze it between your thighs.
This type of pillow promotes solid and restful sleep, whether you sleep alone or with a partner. After you start using it, you may notice that you don't wake up in the night feeling achy and that you wake up in the morning feeling energized instead of stiff. If you share a bed with a partner, both of you will be able to use your own pillow, and will likely experience steadier periods of sleep that don't involve unintentionally waking each other up. This, in turn, means you'll have more energy for important tasks and activities during the daytime.
One common problem for side sleepers is that their knees tend to rub together and the skin on each knee eventually begins to chafe off. By keeping your knees slightly separated, however, a Legacy Leg Pillow will help remedy this issue, and you won't need to avoid wearing short skirts or shorts any longer. On a slightly grosser note, you also won't end up with a bunch of dead skin on your bedsheets.
By correcting your posture at nighttime, your Legacy Leg Pillow might actually be able to improve your posture during the day, too. Humans are creatures of habit, so if you get used to having your spine, hips, and pelvis aligned in a certain way at night, you may automatically align them that way during the day.
The Legacy Leg Pillow is ideal for side sleepers but is not ideal for back and stomach sleepers. If you were to place this pillow between your knees and upper thighs and lie on your back or stomach, the front or back of it would end up poking into your mattress. It might even raise your body a couple of inches up above the mattress, which probably wouldn't be a comfortable position for anyone. Consequently, if you're a person who doesn't sleep exclusively on either side, this might not be the best pillow for you.
For an optimum level of support, it's safe to use two of the Legacy Leg Pillows at once. If you go this route, place one of the pillows just above your knees and the other one just below. Even though neither one may be touching your knees at all, both of them will work together to keep them positioned slightly apart.
If you regularly go to appointments at a chiropractor or physiotherapist's office, due to back or hip pain, you may no longer need to go as often after you begin using one of these pillows. This won't be true in all situations, but it may turn out that all your pain is caused by a poor sleeping position, which this pillow will correct. If that's the case, you might even be able to eliminate your appointments—and the time you spend driving there and sitting in the waiting room—altogether.
