Best Bum Cushion for Office Chair [Top 4 Choices]

If you’re looking to improve your ergonomics and reduce back pain, you should get a bum cushion for your office chair.

A bum cushion is a cushion that sits on your chair’s seat, designed to support your back and cushion your bum from the hard surface of the chair. They’re one of the most important accessories for any office chair, as they can drastically improve your comfort and productivity.

But not all bum cushions are created equal. This article will explore the best bum cushions for office chairs.

They are:

WAOAW Seat Cushion

Although desk jobs are nothing new, the rise of technology and the growing number of people who spend their day behind a desk have made them more common.

Add in the fact that most desk seats are not designed using ergonomic principles and you’re looking at a perfect storm for back problems.

The WAOAW Seat Cushion is here to help.

Made out of 100% memory foam, this seat is sure to create a soft yet firm environment that reduces pressure and stress on your bum.

There’s nothing more annoying than putting a cushion on your seat only to have it slide from side to side throughout the day. You want something that can support you. The anti-slip rubber bottom of the WAOAW Seat Cushion does exactly that. It ensures that the cushion stays in place throughout the entire duration of your workday.

If you plan on using this cushion for an extended period of time, the cover might get a little dirty (as does anything with extended use). The good thing is, that the cover is machine washable. You can simply unzip the cover and toss it in the wash.

Overall, this is a great choice if you are looking for a simple bum cushion for your office chair.

What We Like

  • It’s made with memory foam
  • It’s portable and durable
  • It keeps its shape
  • The anti-slip rubber bottom

What We Don’t Like

  • The firmness of the memory foam might take some getting used to

Gel Seat Cushion by Stuffed Store

Whether you spend your entire day sitting or you only sit for part of the day, you probably want those hours to be spent as comfortably as possible. Next up, we have the Gel Seat Cushion by Stuffed Store.

Coming in three different colors: navy blue, black, and gray, you’ll have no problem finding a color that fits your set-up.

The advanced ergonomic design of this seat cushion provides comfortable sitting support and is designed to support you for an entire eight-hour day. I love the memory foam. But, what I like even more is the layer of thick medical grade liquid gel that Stuffed Store added to this Gel Seat Cushion.

If you decide you want to take your comfort on the go, you don’t only have to use this bum cushion on your office chair. You can also take it with you anywhere you’d like. You can take it with you in the car, in the dining room, on bleachers at a sporting event, etc.

Like the WAOAW Seat Cushion, the Gel Seat Cushion by Stuffed Store has a u-shaped cutout that allows your coccyx to float above the unforgiving surface of your office chair. It also has a slightly lower cost than the WAOAW Seat Cushion, making it more desirable if you have to choose between the two.

What We Like

  • The memory foam and therapeutic gel
  • You can use it on almost any chair
  • The non-slip bottom
  • It comes in three colors

What We Don’t Like

  • The contour might not fit all body types

Seat Cushion & Lumbar Support Pillow by Qutool Store

You may love the idea of cushioning your bum for the long hours you spend at your desk. You can already see the benefits of using a cushion, and all of the support it will provide you. However, you may be wondering, what about my lumbar?

This Seat Cushion & Lumbar Support Pillow by Qutool Store not only cushions your bum but also supports your lumbar with a separate piece that straps to the back of your chair.

We all know that sitting for long hours can cause tension and stress on our bums and on our upper and mid-backs. That’s where the second part of this product comes in: the back cushion. The back cushion will help in relieving stiffness and tension in your lower, mid, and upper back. There is a huge benefit to having both the bum and back cushions.

This product is made from 100% memory foam. Memory foam is a fantastic material to reduce pressure and stress on the pressure points that usually touch the office chair. It’s almost as if the pressure sort of melts away into the memory foam.

Like the other models in our list, this product has a u-shaped cutout in the back of the cushion to provide coccyx and tailbone support and relief. The goal of the design is to provide evenly distributed support to every part of your body that makes contact with the cushion. It does a great job of doing just that.

What We Like

  • You get a back and a seat cushion
  • The breathable mesh cover
  • You can wash the cover
  • It relieves coccyx pressure

What We Don’t Like

  • The bottom cushion can flatten quite a bit after sitting on it for an extended period but springs back up quickly

Office Chair Seat Cushion and Lumbar Support by Everlasting Comfort

Last but not least, we have the most advanced product on our list. You could say we saved the best for last. This is the Office Chair Seat Cushion and Lumbar Support by Everlasting Comfort. Similar to the previous product on our list, this one also has a bum cushion as well as a back pillow.

What makes this product particularly special is the gel-infused memory foam with heat-responsive technology. We all know that feeling when you’re sitting on something a little too cushy (like memory foam) and you begin to sweat. This technology does its best to ensure that that doesn’t occur. Think of it as a built-in A/C for your bum cushion!

The memory foam does a great job of adjusting to the curvature of your body, no matter your shape or size.

As with the others, you can take this cushion set with you virtually anywhere. If you just want to take the bottom cushion with you somewhere, you can leave the back pillow attached to your office chair.

Overall, this product has many of the features that the other products have: memory foam, u-shaped cutout for coccyx and tailbone support, non-slip bottom, etc. What really sets this model apart is the fact that it has a bum cushion and a back pillow alongside the ventilation that keeps you nice and cool throughout your long workday.

What We Like

  • The holes cause excellent circulation and keep you cool
  • It doesn’t flatten very easily
  • Both covers are machine washable and dryer safe
  • The memory foam is very comfortable

What We Don’t Like

  • The covers do show signs of wear and tear after extended use
