I bought this chair for my self, 18 years old, Exactly 200 pounds, All curvy and thunder thighs, because I've been studying for college, and if I studied in my bed it was more likely I'd fall asleep because I would lean back rather than sitting upright. The comfort of the chair all together is aces, but if you're an adult and have bodacious thunder thighs like I do, Best sit on a big pillow with it too. The metal bar that makes it round, and holds up the fabric pressed so hard into my thighs, when I got up it was numb, and when the numbness wore off it ached, and I woke up today, and the back of my thighs are bruised beyond all compare. Needless to say, I put one of my thick firm pillows from my bed on it, and am currently using it as cushion as I write this review. Probably should of spent a LITTLE more money and got one of these saucer chairs with a lot more cushion. Might actually do that too, I don't want to be in my dorm studying for hours at a time and my legs be too bruised to finish my courses.
