The YogaDirect Bolster Review

​If you’re anything like me, you’re not exactly very graceful when you practice yoga. The truth is it can be hard to keep your balance and hold poses when you’re first starting out. That’s why a bolster pillow is such a good investment for anyone who practices yoga.

The YogaDirect Bolster is one of the best rated bolsters available. It’s supportive, durable, and it available at a surprisingly reasonable price. Everything I learned about this bolster made me like it even more which is why I wanted to share my findings.

YogaDirect Bolster

​Firmness Holds up over Time

The YogaDirect Bolster is stuffed with cotton blend batting that is exceptionally firm. That’s exactly what you want from a yoga bolster because you’re just not going to get the support you need with a pillow that isn’t really firm. In addition to using high quality materials, YogaDirect slightly overstuffs these bolsters so that as the batting settles, the bolster still maintains its shape.

The thing that makes this bolster really special is that it stays firm. I don’t just mean it’s firm throughout your workout. I mean it keeps its firmness and shape with little or no sagging even after a lot of use. In fact, some users have commented that they were just as firm after a year of use as they were when they were brand new.

High Quality to Hold Up over Time

We already talked about how the cotton blend batting stays exceptionally firm overtime but every other component of this bolster is high-quality and made to last. The fabric is really tough and durable while still being soft to the touch. It will stand up to a lot of wear and tear and hold up well over time.

That’s not all. The seams are tough. The straps on the ends are secured really well. The zipper is strong. Some customers have even commented that, despite frequent use, their YogaDirect Bolster looks nearly brand new.

Features and Specifications

This is a large, round bolster that’s 28”long x 10” wide.

It has a 100% cotton cover that can be easily removed and thrown in the washing machine if it ever gets dirty or soiled.

There is a sturdy fabric handle on each end for easy transport.

It’s available in four different colors: blue, russet, maroon, and sinopia, a bright, saturated orange.

The filling is a blend of cotton batting that is tightly packed for exceptional firmness while still providing enough give during use to keep the use comfortable.

​Customer Reviews and Scores

The YogaDirect Bolster is a great choice for anyone who needs some extra support when practicing yoga. Whether you’re just getting started or you want to improve your practice, this firm, durable pillow deserves a place in your studio.

As a testament to how impressed users are with this bolster, at the time of this writing, I found 137 reviews. Overall, the YogaDirect Bolster earned 4.3 out of 5 stars.

While there were some complaints, most were really minor. There were several customers who weren't expecting the bolster to be so big. One said, “I guess I should have paid more attention to the size.” Another customer commented, “For other purposes, this product could well be 5-stars. It simply turned out to be larger than we needed.”

Other complaints centered on the color. One said, “Beware the maroon is bright red not maroon,” while another commented, “I was surprised at how bright it was when it came.”

While these are valid complaints, to me they don’t speak to the quality of the product. Just keep in mind that this is a really large bolster. I mentioned the dimensions earlier but just to really drive the point home, it’s 28” long x 10” wide. Also, be aware that the colors might be a little brighter than they look.

Most users raved about the YogaDirect Bolster. One said, “Love this for doing some restorative yoga at home. Made well, and it’s the perfect size.” Another customer commented, “Wonderful bolster, perfect firmness and excellent quality.” Generally, people were pleased with their purchase, like one user who said, “Very nice and firm, material quality is evident.”

While some people did have some concerns, most of them were about things like color and misjudging the size. They didn’t generally complain about quality. Plus, there were so many satisfied customers that I can confidently recommend the YogaDirect Bolster.


In summary, the YogaDirect Bolster pillow is great for anyone who practices yoga. It provides the right amount of support to maintain various poses and stay comfortable while practicing yoga. This is a well-made product that will stay firm even after heavy use. The entire bolster is made of quality materials and the craftsmanship is second to none.
