Therapeutic pillow for spacing legs


FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of the therapeutic pillow for spacing legs showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a rear perspective view thereof, with the therapeutic pillow rotated from the position of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a front elevational view thereof, in smaller scale;

FIG. 4 is a top plan view thereof, looking in the direction of arrow 4 in FIG. 3; and,

FIG. 5 is a side elevational view thereof, looking in the direction of arrow 5 in FIG. 3.

The characteristic feature of my design resides in the closely clustered radiating appearance of the overall group of interconnected roll-like pillows, presented by the outwardly diverging relationship of the opposing pairs of pillows spaced apart on opposite sides of a central pillow, and the contacting and outwardly diverging relationship of the pillows of each pair.
