I wanted to do a quick review on a shower seat I bought recently to help make my bath time less exhausting. Yes, I said shower seat. Ever since my pregnancy began (with my center of gravity shifting off center), I found that standing up in a hot shower for more than 10 minutes was just too much to handle. Even more challenging has been reaching down towards my calves to shave my legs.
That’s why on my last shopping trip to Bed Bath and Beyond, I told my husband a shower seat was a must! I didn’t really know what to look for, just knew I needed a small seat that would fit in the shower. He came back with the Safety First Tub & Shower Seat priced at $34.99. I didn’t really think too much of it, but the fact that it emphasized safety was a great selling point for an expectant mother.
Now that I’ve been using the seat for about two months, I think it was an investment worth making. It’s sturdy, durable and doesn’t slip when wet. It really has made it easier for me to shave my legs and take a breather when I need to. The only downside to the seat is the size — it takes up quite some space in our one stall shower, which is a bit annoying when you want to stand up and get a nice rinse. Nonetheless, this shower seat was one purchase I’m glad I made!
