To get the most accurate measurements for your bolster cushions, it is best to use your existing cushion covers where possible. Your old bolster cushion foam may have become misshapen and not provide accurate measurements.
Carefully measure your existing bolster cushions and enter the size in mm, cm or inches following the directions on the foam shape. If you need further help then take a look at our step by step guide on how to measure your bolster cushion foam below.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BOLSTER CUSHION
For sofa cushion replacement we would recommend using our sofa cushion replacement service.
Firstly, put the existing cushion (cover only ideally) on a flat surface. Pulling the cover tort but not stretching it, measure from one side to the either going from seam to seam and measure as near to the front or back corners as you can (if there is piping then measure inside the piping). If you measure in the middle the material can stretch more so gives a less accurate measurement. Please bear in mind that some covers are wider at the front than at the back (or vice versa), so please check this too.
Next, using the same technique as above, you’ll need to measure from the front edge to the back edge of the cushion.
Lastly, you’ll need to measure the thickness of the cushion. Once again pull the cover tight measure between the seams and record this measurement. We recommend rounding up on all measurements above as the cover will pull the foam in and ensure a snug fit.
Once you have recorded your measurements enter them into our calculator. We would recommend adding the fibre wrap to all cushion replacements as this gives the cushion a fuller finish, the fibre wrap will be in addition to foam so do not reduce the dimensions of the foam to accommodate for this.
