I have a standup shower that does not have anywhere to put your feet when you wish to shave your legs. I needed something small that wouldn't take up much space, and sturdy enough that would allow me to lean my foot on it to shave. This works out really well and is exactly what I was looking for. I also love that the top is a rubber type material that prevents my foot from slipping. If I had a wish it would just be that the stool was a little taller - it's 6 inches tall - but overall this was a great buy and exactly what I searched all over the internet for. It amazes me that more companies don't make stools for this same scenario.
