Why is this a good deal?

At $18, this is the lowest price the Dreamer Car wedge seat cushion has been in four years. Given how much you drive, it practically pays for itself over time and repeat use. For less than twenty bucks, your back and butt will thank you.

Why do I need this?

Car seat cushions aren't comfortable for everyone, especially if you have back or hip issues at baseline. The Dreamer Car wedge seat cushion has a low front and high back to give you easy access to the pedals, while lifting your up so you can see better. The result: better posture and more padding.

The cushions are crafted from memory foam for a responsive feel, and they keep their shape over time. Meaning, you don't have to worry about this pancaking out on you in the future.

The Dreamer Car wedge seat cushion is portable and easy to move from car to car. You can even pop it on the seat when you fly. It also has a non-slip rubber bottom and elastic strap, so you won't slide around while you cruise down the highway.

The cushion cover is made from breathable mesh to lower the risk you'll develop a sweaty booty while you drive, too. Happen to spill something on it? Don't stress. Just take off the cover with the help of the hidden zipper and toss it in the wash.

While you probably aren't choosing a car seat cushion based on looks alone, it doesn't hurt that the Dreamer Car wedge seat cushion comes in seven different colors, allowing you to match your cushion to your upholstery.

You — and your butt — deserve this.

What reviewers say

More than 4,500 customers gave the Dreamer Car wedge seat cushion a perfect review. "I get hip and back pain when my hips are sitting lower than my knees and this cushion is perfect for just the right angle when driving so that I can drive without pain," shared a fan. "It's sturdy and comfortable without having too much height. It gives just enough stability and height towards the back of the seat, so driving no longer is uncomfortable for me."

Others rave about how effective this cushion is for easing road trip pain. "I love my Toyota Corolla, however the seats are REALLY not meant for 15 hour road trips," said a five-star reviewer. "After about 8 hours my lower back starts hurting and my hips start hurting, but not with this marvelous specimen! I can't believe I hadn't thought of this sooner. Three years of Christmas road trips, arriving at my mom's house feeling elderly, hunched over, complaining about my back and trying to schedule a last minute chiropractic appointment before the office closes for the holiday. Not anymore!"

Consider this testimonial, too: "This saved my back, butt and sanity. I’m tall, and my car seat is low. My knees were above my waist when I drove. This little cushion fixed that. Now I sit level. And happy."

Plenty of users say the seat has good features to keep it from sliding around. "This is 'grippy' so it stays in place," said one. "It makes the seat much more comfortable."

Just a heads up: One owner said "it slides around on the seat if you're constantly getting in and out of the car," so some readjustment may be necessary over time.

Choose from seven different shades, so you can match your padding to your upholstery.
