Gravity Blankets Weighted blankets offer deep pressure touch across the body to induce the feeling of being hugged or held, soothing nervous systems and encouraging relaxation. Doctors and psychologists commonly recommend them for treating insomnia, restless leg syndrome (RLS) and anxiety as they increase serotonin and melatonin levels while decreasing cortisol, providing a boost to mood as well as providing sound sleep quality.
Gravity provides a full suite of sleep & relaxation products designed to promote better restful sleep and reduce stress, including their popular weighted blanket which earned high marks in several categories including durability, washability and temperature regulation.
This blanket features a cotton inner shell stuffed with micro glass beads, with an outer cover made from soft micro-plush material for optimal sleep quality and an air circulation system designed to evenly disperse it throughout. A gridded stitching pattern helps evenly distribute bead fill. Many reviewers found it extremely cozy and snuggly to sleep under, and its breathability means air can freely circulate inside of it – something essential for hot sleepers.
However, this blanket may not be suitable for very light or very heavy sleepers. Since only offering single-sized blankets weighing 15 or 20 pounds each and one queen/king-sized one weighing 35 pounds could potentially prove too heavy for lighter sleepers while too light for heavier sleepers in terms of deep pressure stimulation benefits.
