My fiancé laughed hysterically as I stuck my face into this doughnut-hole pillow that promises breathing relief for those who sleep on their stomachs. The soft, silly-looking contraption has long arms that snap (with difficulty) into various positions around the firm-but-comfy O-shaped pillow to create a variety — 12, according to the illustrated instructions — of shapes for different needs. While it doesn’t quite work for the sleeping-on-the-stomach thing (unless you can stay in the same position all night), the other possibilities — it’s a perfect face-rest for a back massage — make it a decent buy at $28.95. Flip the arms over for a TV-watching neck rest, bring it in the car or plane to stop that commuter-sleep head-bobbing thing (which actually makes you look like a bigger idiot than using this in the first place), or try it at your desk to catch some shut-eye during working hours. Amen to that. Grade: B
