Quietly has written up an informative blog post helping you determine how heavy a weighted blanket should be.


United States, June 25, 2022- Have you ever wondered how heavy is too heavy for a weighted blanket? Quietly has the answer for you in their latest blog post, titled ‘How Heavy Should A Weighted Blanket Be?’.

Weighted blankets can be very beneficial, but with so many different choices, it can be difficult to find the right weight. Quietly goes into all the factors that should be considered when choosing weight.

Right off the bat, Quietly discredits the myth that a weighted blanket should be 10% of your weight. By examining a variety of studies done on the 10% rule, it is clear that you can safely use a heavier weight if you wanted.

“At the end of the day, choosing a weight is a personal choice, it is not determined by the 10% rule,” said one Quietly writer.

Knowing your body frame size is important when choosing the size of your blanket. You can actually determine your body frame size by wrapping your hand around your wrist.

If your thumb and index finger overlap, you have a petite frame, if your thumb and index finger touch, you have an average frame, and, if your thumb and index finger do not touch at all, you have a large frame. 

Height should also be taken into consideration when determining body frame size. Quietly has provided a helpful chart to help you determine the proper weight for your blanket.

The blog also goes into the potential uses for each weight. While the therapeutic benefits begin at a moderate weight, a heavy weighted blanket is useful for those with severe low moods, chronic pain, anxiety, sleep issues, and more. 

The article goes into depth explaining how to properly calculate measurements, and which weights go with which measurements. 

“I really feel the benefits of my weighted blanket. I am so glad I stumbled on that blog post!” said one satisfied user.
