If you'd like a softer chair, add a layer of N'Dulgent memory foam to the seat cushion or the entire chair. We highly recommend this option because it further reduces seated pressure on your hips and back.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Superior in every way!
January 23, 2015
I had been using my daughter's chair that came with a child's desk when she was about nine years old, in 1991. It was literally falling apart, but I preferred it to the very nice desk chair my husband bought for us adults a couple of years ago. The "adult chair" was so uncomfortable for me. I'm a little over 5 feet in height, but my legs are really long in proportion to my torso. I was a little bit nervous about making such an expensive purchase online, but I was becoming desperate for something I could sit in other than the deteriorating child's chair. I'm so glad I took the chance! This chair is so comfortable! I love it! Customer service has been superior. I communicated several times with Claire, who was extremely helpful. She did everything she could to make sure I chose the options that would best fit my situation. It was a real pleasure working with her. This has been a very satisfying experience in every way!

Finally a chair my size!
August 18, 2014
For context, I am just under 5'2", 115 lbs and, proportionally, very short legged. I work in software: often for over 60 hours a week. I have chronic back and neck pain from sitting cross-legged because my feet don't touch the ground properly and without using the armrests because they are uncomfortably far from the seat. It's enough of a problem that I am in physical therapy because of it (folks, this is what happens when you ignore an uncomfortable chair for too long!). Between chairs I have bought, and those my employer has, I have tried five other high-end, supposedly petite-person-friendly chairs and none of them fit. This one does! This is what the rest of the world experiences when they sit in an office chair. It's very comfortable. Who knew? Specifics: 1. Shallow seat depth. This is critical. You can always use a footrest to compensate for a high seat height, but that does you no good if the seat hits you below your knees so they don't bend properly-and trying to pile up pillows behind you so that your legs reach the end of the seat defeats the purpose of any ergonomic back the chair came equipped with. 2. Low seat height. Adjustable down to 15" (14.5" would be nice but oh well) 3. Arms can be brought closer to the chair (the width can be narrowed) so that you can use the arm rests properly. If needed you could bring them in so close that it would be hard for me to get into the seat. 4. Attached footrest. It's at the perfect height but not so comfortable if you don't wear shoes while working. 5. Backrest encourages good posture. Every chair claims this. This is the first one that's succeeded with me. It has a comfortable vertical bulge in the middle of the backrest (I have the high one). I was dubious when I looked at it but I've discovered that it encourages me to roll my shoulders back rather than to slump with them forward. Long story short: If you are a petite woman who spends a lot of time at a desk, you need this chair! It is worth the investment. And it's cheaper than physical therapy ;)

It fits
September 10, 2009
I bought this chair as a gift for my mom. She sits a lot at work and chairs never fit her right. She needed a very comfortable chair for a petite woman. This chair fits her so well it is as if it was custom made. Her back stopped hurting.
