If you’re part of the ever-growing crowd that works from home, you know how easy it is to fall into the trap of spending your days on the couch, hunched over a laptop. And while a cushy sofa certainly sounds like a comfortable place to spend your 9-to-5, it won't do your lower back or joints any favors after a while—so investing in an office chair that’s built to offer both support and comfort is one of the best investments that you can make.

But there are a lot of choices out there when it comes to office chairs, so we’ve pulled together a list of the best-selling models on Amazon (only one from each brand) with the best user ratings (at least 700 customer reviews). Check them out below.

1. Boss Products Perfect Posture Office Chair (4.3 stars); $75

Boss Office Products/Amazon

Sitting all day can cause poor circulation, but this chair's curved waterfall seat helps combat that by promoting healthy blood flow to the legs, according to the company. Coupled with its lumbar support and adjustable armrests, this chair is built for comfort when working for long stretches.

2. Wonder Woman and Superman; $15-$25

California Costume’s Mail Carrier ensemble has a combined shirt and front legs piece with attached “arms,” which hold your dog’s special delivery via Velcro.

7. Fair Isle Halloween Sweater; $14-$16

Frisco/Chewy

Whether your pet wants to keep it more casual this year or have an excuse to celebrate for the entire month of October, Frisco’s Fair Isle sweater will put the “howl” in their Halloween look.

10. Headless Rider; $18

Frisco/Chewy

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is one of America’s most infamous ghost stories. Celebrate Washington Irving’s beloved folktale by turning your pet into the headless horseman’s ghoulish accomplice. This is a great option for pets who might not like getting dressed up, but who feel comfortable wearing simple thunder jackets or shirts. Simply fasten the cape around them via hook-and-loop fasteners, and presto! They’re automatically the companion of a plush, headless terror (terror being relative, in this case).
