The Best Weighted Blankets, According To Soothed Reviewers

·9 min read

During overwhelming periods of time, returning, revisiting, or refreshing the self-care practices and products that work best for soothing ourselves is never a bad idea. And from our current WFB (Work From Bed) posts, we've got weighted blankets top of mind to get that comforting job done.

Weighted blankets are designed for everything from simulating a hug to reducing stress and improving sleep — but, as an anxiety-management solution, they aren't for everyone. At most, the heavy good can serve as a mechanism that provides feelings of support and calm by replicating deep pressure touch; At least, it can be used as an extra snuggly couch coverup or bed throw. Ahead, we've rounded up the top-reviewed weighted blankets on the market according to customers who are soothed by them IRL — from handwoven velvety knits to glass bead-filled quilted styles and more.

And remember: If you are experiencing anxiety and are in need of crisis support, please call the Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour hotline at 1-775-784-8090.

Welcome to Hype Machine, our hit-list of the top reviewed products across the web — according to a crowd of die-hard shoppers. Call this your 4-star & up only club, with entry granted by our devoted-to-the-goods shop editors.
