Different Features of LDR Pillows
Not just any pillow works well for long distance couples, hence, is not worthy of the title of an “LDR pillow.”
In order to be a real LDR pillow, a pillow must have most of the following (if not all) different features:
The option to personalize your LDR pillow is an absolute must most of the time.
Whether it’s text, a picture, or being able to stick a pillow talk device inside, customization is key in great LDR pillows.
When you spend a massive amount of time sitting or lying down, communicating with your LDR lover, through one channel or another, comfort is crucial.
That means, that just because a pillow is cute or has an LDR quote doesn’t make a pillow a good LDR pillow.
Sometimes, regular everyday pillows for the bedroom are perfect LDR pillows, because they are so damn comfortable.
The best LDR pillows are always made of high-end materials like cotton, linen, and polyester.
The main reason this really matters is that pillows made with high-quality materials last longer and are way more comfortable and breathable than pillows made with low-quality materials.
High-end LDR pillows are nearly always washable because they are made of high-quality materials.
This factor is easy to overlook, so take a second and double-check your LDR pillows before you order!
For now, there are no pillows (that we know of) that have reliable built-in smart capabilities… but, there is one device growing in popularity called “pillow talk.”
If you can find a couple of them, you can turn any set of pillowcases and pillows into smart pillows!
These capabilities include heartbeat monitoring and direct voice messaging.
