I’m about 5’3 and 140 lbs. Got the 20lb weighted blanket to go with my nightly meditation because I have pretty bad anxiety and depression and no health insurance to cover therapy.
This blanket absolutely helped me stay asleep longer. I sleep both on my side and my back and found that the 20lb Queen was a great weight. Not too heavy that I felt suffocated, but not too light that I felt like I wasn’t being held.
I didn’t buy the baloo duvet cover, just put it in a regular Double duvet cover (the blanket isn’t actually to the dimensions of a typical Queen, as is the case with most weighted blankets). Despite not having ties to hold the blanket in place, I find I don’t shift much under the weighted blanket so no bunching issues have occurred. And I saved a lot of money by using my own duvet cover.
Because of COVID, the blanket took about 2 weeks to be shipped out, but only a couple days in actual shipping time from the storage in BC to Alberta. In better times, it’s likely the blanket will arrive promptly.
I enjoy this blanket (20lb) a lot! I immediatelyfound it very comfortable when relaxing on the couch. It took me a little bit (2-4 days) to get used to sleeping with it but now I am thoroughly enjoying it in bed too.
I purchased this for my mothers birthday. She has wanted one for an extremely long time and I often scanned the internet for cheap options. Do. NOT. Go. For. Cheaper. Costco had a sale one some and they are absolute garbage. They dont keep the beads in place and once in use all the weight rolls off to the sides. When she opens this one she immediately ran it to her bedroom and snuggled under to test it out. She has had it for about a month now and LOVES it. The weight stays consistant. When it comes to buying a weighted blanket, forking over a little more money than you want to is worth it quality product. I will be getting one for myself as well.
Honestly, we may need to buy a second blanket as I bought this for myself and it's been helping my husband sleep so much that he's now addicted to it. He tosses and turns like a fish out of water usually, but not when he's under our Baloo blanket. It doesn't make either of us too hot either in our condo-sized bedroom. Well worth the money spent.
I love this blanket! Appears to be very well made. I’m a hot sleeper and so far it’s been very comfortable, definitely not too hot in early June.
