And the award for cutest bath pillow easily goes to this sweet little panda. It's our top pick for toddlers but it will certainly bring a smile to anyone's face.

This pretty little shell design definitely has our favorite look of the bunch. Enjoy the feel of velvety-soft microfiber attached to two large suction cups. This is a great option if you're just looking for a soft, cute place to lay your head instead of an ergonomically designed support pillow.

Another best-seller on the list, this bath cushion is made from comfortable, breathable mesh — ideal for sensitive skin. The fabric also quickly air dries and has four suctions attached to the back.

Last but certainly not least, this full-body bath pillow gives cushiony comfort from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. It has a whopping 21 suction cups, perfectly mixes softness and support, and mirrors the feeling of a normal mattress. The purchase also includes a scraper to help lift the suction cups and a washing machine bag to protect the suctions from getting ruined. Bath time will never be the same.

Bath Pillow Buying Guide

Here's everything to keep in mind while narrowing down your options.

1. Comfort

We promise there's a comfortable option for everyone. You can't go wrong with pillows specifically designed with ergonomics in mind. Do you prefer soft or firm bed pillows? Consider that preference when looking at the filling, fabric, and overall shape of your prospective bath pillow purchase. And if you're looking for even more cushioning, you should definitely think about a full-body model that extends the length of the tub.

2. Safety

Make sure the pillow has a way to attach to the tub's side — most often via suction. Double check that it's properly stuck before putting your full body weight on it.

3. Material

Bath pillows are either made from a quick-drying material or a water-resistant one. Mesh is a very popular option for good airflow and easy drying. It's light, breathable, and plush. Opt for a fully waterproof material if you're looking for something that repels water droplets entirely.

4. Tub Type

While most bath pillows have a universal design and can easily connect to both tubs and jacuzzis, it's important to double-check before making your purchase.

5. Longevity of Bath Pillows

Hang your bath pillow after each use to ensure it dries completely and remains fresh. No one likes mildew!

6. Cleaning Bath Pillows

Always check the label before your first wash. Many models are machine washable for ultimate convenience. Otherwise, they can easily be hand-washed.
