Most literature shows a therapeutic benefit with the use of a weighted blanket between 7-12% of your body weight, and the most commonly used equation is 10% of body weight.
Use the chart below to select a blanket that will be appropriate for you based off of the closest weight to your body weight.
If you are in between two sizes, it is a matter of preference to go either up or down to the nearest blanket weight.
|Your Weight||Blanket Weight|
|110-170 lbs||15 lbs|
|171-230 lbs||20 lbs|
|230+ lbs||25 lbs|
