The surface you meditate on will affect the way your bench fits you. Kneeling on softer surfaces (zabutons for example) will cause your bench to sink into them. In this case you may want a taller bench to make sure your feet have enough room. If you get a bench that seems too tall, use a blanket or pad beneath you and you might find it’s even more comfortable than having a shorter bench with less padding for your legs. It is easy to make a bench that seems too tall fit you. If the bench is too low, you may have to return it.
