Bean bags come in a variety of designs to suit the many different ways people like to sit:
You need to consider where and how you will be using the bean bag mostly. You also need to take into account any physical restrictions that may impact on enjoying the best experience that bean bags can offer you. While bean bags can easily be "shaped" by hand or sitting in them and adjusting them by moving your body around, the chair will maintain it's profile shape.
If you will be using the bean bag as a furniture alternative to chairs, then the chair style is probably going to be the best for you. They are always look neat and are ready to sit in without needing shaping. They blend in and compliment existing furniture, making them great for lounge settings. Their structured shape is also better for those with back or leg problems, as they sit higher off the ground and are easier to get up from.

This style is, and always has been, the most popular and endearing shape of the bean bag designs. When most people think bean bags, they think of this design. It's organic style is really like a nest for the human body, because it conforms to the body's shape and allows you to sprawl out your legs, hang limbs over the sides, or to curl up in. It's versatility is its charm, and the classic style comes in a variety of different subtle dimensions, depending on the size, use intended and fabric to be used. Some ratios of height to width, or curve to bulge will work better with different fabrics which is why not all classic bean bag shapes are available in all fabric choices,
Something to really consider when buying a bean bag is that if you are a small person, then a large size would be fine for you. However, if you are a larger person, then the extra large size would be more suitable and give you a much comfier seating experience. Also, consider getting a bean bag in the stretch technical fabric. This material has a limited stretch that allows the bean bag to balloon a little, making it slightly larger. Be careful when buying a stretch fabric bean bag that the material doesn't stretch too much. If the fabric gives too much, you will be lying on the floor. Thankfully, our stretch material is carefully chosen to work with the design to properly give our bean bags just the right amount of stretch needed.
