Smile Cushion

A crescent shaped zafu--we could have called it a watermelon or banana cushion--provides more surface area which is generally more comfortable than the zafu and can help alleviate legs falling asleep.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Although 'zafu' is often translated as 'sewn seat' in American English, the meaning of the Japanese 'kanji' is different. 'za' means 'seat' and 'fu' means a seat stuffed with Typha (the fluffy, soft, downy fibres of the disintegrating Typha heads). The Japanese zafu originates in China, where these meditation seats were originally filled with Typha. Today, that is no longer the case in Japan or China.

An alternate translation of zafu is 'cushion for sitting' or 'sitting cushion', where za means 'sitting' or 'sit' and fu means 'cushion'. The words zabuton, zafuton and futon are closely linked. The word 'zazen' meaning 'seated meditation' or 'sitting meditation' is also closely linked. In western terms, colloquially speaking, 'zafu' refers to a meditation cushion, and 'zabuton' refers to the cushioned mat on which a zafu is placed.crescent shaped meditation cushion with more room for the tush!

Support Cushions are used under a smile cushion by those who need a higher seat. Other uses of the support cushion are 1) placed under one or both knees by those sitting in the 'sky' position, and 2) placed in a regular chair with buckwheat pushed to back to create a forward sloping tilt.

One size fits all. Some people like to reduce the height by taking out some of the stuffing, or add height by using a support cushion
