So, what is a bolster pillow case, and what is the key difference between a bolster pillow cover and a case? Quite often these two things are confused, and this is not a mistake. However, if you need to remember the key difference, keep in mind, that the pillowcase is always hidden under the cover. The cases can be used over the basic pillow case and you will sleep on it. The pillow cover can be both decorative and can be used to sleep on the pillow. If you are about to purchase a wedge bolster pillow, it can be available both with a cover and a pillowcase. If that is the matter, you always put a cover over the case. By the way, from our experience, we can say, that is always a great idea to buy a bolster pillow with a cover (and maybe with a case) to always have something to put on the pillow when the original case is being cleaned.

Types of cases

There are three main bolster pillowcases: traditional, zippered, and envelope. Standard cases are the most basic type of case, and they usually just have a slit in the middle for inserting the pillow. Zippered cases are more secure as they have a zipper that goes all the way around the perimeter of the case. Envelope cases are similar to traditional ones, but they have an additional flap covering the top of the pillow.


The most popular shapes for bolster pillows are cylindrical, rectangular, and square. Cylindrical pillows are long and thin, while rectangular pillows are shorter and broad. Square pillows are just what they sound like – square!


Cotton is a breathable material that’s perfect for hot summer nights. Silk is the most expensive option, but it’s also the most elegant. Linen is very durable and luxurious.

Now that you know more about the different types of bolster pillowcases, it’s time to decide which one is right for you! If you need help selecting the perfect case.
