These chairs are made for comfort, and in order to carry out this mission, bean bag chairs come in a few different sizes. There are kids, teen, adult, and massive sizes with kids being the smallest and massive being the largest. The size names are fairly self-explanatory, which each size designed for a certain demographic, and massive ones being optimal for group gatherings. The specific sizes mean that an adult, for instance, would not have to confine themselves to the limited space of a kid’s sized bean bag, and that child’s bean bag chair would be just the right size to be able to offer them total support.
There are also different types of stuffing for bean bag chairs. Foam stuffing provides the most support, is the most commonly found, and is also used in couches and cushions.
Polystyrene beads are another possible option, and in short, they are small beads that shift within a bean bag to provide added comfort. The most luxurious option is expanded polypropylene beads. These beads can return to their original size after being placed under pressure. In other words, bean bag chairs made of this material will not deform after being sat on for extended periods of time.

As they offer total support, bean bags are sometimes recommended by medical professionals to patients suffering muscle or joint pain, or those who have recently undergone a surgery. Besides being functional pieces of furniture, many bean bag chairs boast creative designs and patterns which can make them a fun option for room decor.
