A weighted blanket should be roughly 10-12% of your body weight. However, some people prefer a slightly heavier or slightly lighter blanket.
Weighted blankets are supposed to fit the body rather than the bed, this ensure the weight is placed on your body rather than the bed. Therefore, weighted blankets are smaller than regular duvets, our blankets are 203cm x 152cm.
Weighted blankets have a number of benefits, such as:
