We always recommend traditional dacron batting for couch and sofa cushions, usually with a book wrap. Batting gives an upholstered couch cushion that full, comfortable, rounded look. Without it your new custom cushions will show wrinkles in the fabric. If you need extra padding around your couch cushion, consider either a double-dacron book wrap, or wrap all sides, if needed. For our high-end organic latex cushions we recommend our organic cotton or organic wool batting with an organic cotton wrap to maintain the organic composition as well as to provide premium padding with your couch cushions. We guarantee you’ll feel the difference. If you really don’t want any batting, then order the foam slightly thicker (1/4" to 1/2") than the case to make sure it fills in as much as possible.
