How Do I Find the Perfect Bean Bag Chair for Me?
There is a trick to finding a bean bag chair that is so comfortable it feels like it was made for you – all it takes is figuring out exactly what you want from your bean bag chair. Simply ask yourself the below questions;
• What size are you looking for in a bean bag chair?
Remember – in this case, size matters, as the bean bag will help you in terms of posture and support. Do you want your bean bag chair to resemble a couch?
Or do you perhaps want something even bigger, like a bean bag you can lay on like a bed? When thinking of this, also consider where you want to place it in your house, and make sure you have the size to fit the bean bag you want.
• What about the fabric?
Do you want something soft and warm, or something chic and stylish?
I’ll assist you with answering these questions with the knowledge below on why they are so important.
I’ll also provide you with a view of the range of our most comfortable bean bags, to help you in deciding just what you are looking for in a bean bag.
The size of a bean bag will assist you with;
Your Back Posture
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, self-reported figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2014–15 National Health Survey showed that 3.7 million people in Australia alone had back pain and problems, many of which are caused by poor posture.
But did you know that poor posture can be improved by the correct use of bean bags, such as improving back pain and problems for gamers?
After all, it is well known that poor posture is bad for our backs.
When we start to feel pressure in our backs, such as muscle tension or fatigue, the instant reaction from our bodies is to slouch, to ease those pressures. However, slouching causes poor posture, and if excessive strain is put on our muscles it can lead to further problems in future, such as:
• Back and other body aches and pain
• Issues with neck movement, causing improper head positioning (i.e. a backwards or forwards head posture)
• Stress on your knees, causing bent knees when standing and walking
• Rounded shoulders
• Poor balance
• Low self-esteem, mild depression
• Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, resulting in jaw pain and difficulty chewing
• Poor breathing ability
• Further, more severe back problems
• Deteriorating joints
• A dysfunctional spine
It is highly recommended that you have the proper furniture to assist you with improving and maintaining good posture.
The furniture must not be too soft, must support your back, and, if to be used in your workplace, must be ergonomic (that is, designed for both comfort and productivity). Well, large bean bags tick all of those boxes!
Your furniture bag needs to be supportive, for the sake of your health and posture, yet still comfortable – well, a bean bag fits that perfect ‘grey area’ between too soft and too hard that we like to call “just right”.
The filling in your bean bag is very supportive, however it is still supple enough to conform to your body, allowing it to bend precisely to the shapes required for your body and your posture. This provides support to your spine, not only preventing you from worsening your back pain, but also teaching your muscles and joints how to align again properly.
Bean bag covers are made from a whole array of different fabrics. The type you choose will make a large impact on your levels of comfort and versatility, including;
• Whether your bean bag is indoors only or can be moved outdoors as well.
• How soft and warm your bean bag will be.
• How luxurious, chic and stylish your bean bag will look.
Fabrics that can be used indoors only include:
• Faux fur (plush)
Fabrics that are so trendy any fashionista would approve, yet versatile, comfortable, and designed to last – well, many would say these are best materials for a bean bag you could buy.
They may be more costly, but that’s only because they are ultra-luxurious. These fabrics include:
More affordable fabrics include:
• Faux leather
