Squatty Potty is back with a new sleek, slim design! The Squatty Potty Slim is an essential for every bathroom – believe us when we say, you will thank Squatty!
Although sitting on the toilet for a number two feels natural and normal - after all it has been drilled into our brains when we were potty training! But did you know sitting on the toilet the way we do is actually doing more damage to your body than good? It’s true; you may not think that sitting on the toilet is a huge problem, but it actually influences a lot of unnecessary pressure on your rectum and pelvic floor, and also sitting on the toilet to poop can seriously damage your bowels. Feeling shocked? Don’t worry; we’ve got the perfect toilet stool (get it?) solution for your pooing problems.
Believe it or not; the human body is anatomically designed to squat for optimal pooping elimination. Squatting to poo opens the gates – as you can imagine. The squatting position unkinks the bowel for a fuller and cleaner evacuation. Have you ever experienced the unsatisfied poo? Where you feel like you’re not quite empty? When you squat, it relieves constipation and you will more often than not, have that satisfactory poop. It’s important to completely eliminate all of the faeces; because if there are remains in the bowel, it can cause more constipation, appendicitis and even lead to bowel disease.
Not pooing can lead to misery – literally!
When we are sat down on the toilet like we are taught to; the anorectal angle is kinked and the puborectalis muscle constricts the rectum, blocking the faeces inside. It is only in the squatting position, by lifting our knees higher than our hips that the anorectal angle is straightened out; enabling the puborectalis muscle to release the choke-hold on the rectum, resulting in a fuller poop evacuation!
Sitting on the toilet often makes us strain and puts pressure on the muscles and blood vessels; this is how haemorrhoids are caused. Not only are the muscles and blood vessels in danger when sitting, but your pelvic floor comes under a lot of stress too which can cause bladder weakness and incontinence. Now who would want that?!
You’ve seen in particular foreign countries that use ‘foot print’ toilets or squatting toilets, hole in the ground – you get the drift – some of us would consider them as less ‘civilised’ than our own! Believe it or not, those who squat to go to the toilet have almost no incidence of diverticulosis and piles are almost never an issue. But, we in the West continue to go to the loo the way we were taught and put more strain on our bodies – like we aren’t doing enough of that already!
How does the Squatty Potty Slim work?
So it’s all good knowing that squatting is the future to proper pooping – but how are you going to squat over the toilet? We don’t expect you to try and balance yourself on your toilet seat, we think that would cause more harm than good!
The family at squatty know that your knees need to be above your hips for ultimate elimination; so what’s the solution? All of your bowel problems will be solved with a Squatty Potty Toilet Stool; it helps you by providing the perfect pooping position as you rest your feet onto the toilet stool so your knees are above your hips, mimicking the natural squat position.
The Squatty Potty Slim is sculpted out of plywood, with a natural wood finish – perfect for modern bathrooms or if you want to add a splash of stylish contemporary design. Its ergonomic design allows you to mimic the optimal squatting position and stores incredibly neatly underneath your toilet.
Squat your way to a happier, healthier colon and poop happy with Squatty Potty Slim.

- Great buy Review by Alittlpotti
- I am converted ... though it took a while Review by pretty polly
However, I have now genuinely turned a corner and it obvious that being in a different position makes a lot of difference. I think a slightly different set of muscles are involved when you 'go' in this position and it does feels like these muscles need to be toned.
I have found that storing the stool under the toilet does not work for me, so I bring it towards instead.
The design is very nice and lightweight and can also be used a step-up to get into high cupboards. (Posted on 20 February 2016)

Also, how does this affect wearers of Florentine style chastity belts such as Neosteel and My-Steel? I wear a chains style but many others wear the more common style with a band with a hole in. Does using a Squatty Potty mean the hole is no longer in the right place?
The family at squatty know that your knees need to be above your hips for ultimate elimination. All of your bowel problems will be solved with a Squatty Potty Slim as it t helps you by providing the perfect pooping position as you rest your feet onto the toilet stool so your knees are above your hips, mimicking the natural squat position.

Yes, you are correct in thinking that the Squatty Potty Slim does have a slightly different design. The Slightly raised heels on the Original Squatty Potty is purely for comfort, it does not impede how effective the Squatty Potty is.
Hope this helps!

Also, does the Slim version have the Squatty Potty text as shown in the photos, or is it plain wood on top?
Thank you for your enquiry.
The ecco is wider then the slim squatty so will take up slightly more floor space. The ecco comes out from the toilet more.
The slim version does not have any writing on it, only stickers which can be easily removed.
If you have any further queries, please contact our customer services team who will be happy to help.
