The best weighted blankets for anxiety on Amazon

 Weighted blankets shouldn't be a substitute for proven therapies for anxiety or insomnia, warns Solz—and if you're currently in treatment for a mental health condition, get the okay from your doctor or therapist before buying one. "For some, like people with panic disorders or agoraphobia, the sensation of a weighted blanket could have a counter-effect and make anxiety even worse," she adds.

Ready to give them a try? Here, the 12 best-weighted blankets for anxiety, according to customer reviews.

Best Overall: The Gravity Blanket

The Weighted Blanket for Sleep

To buy: from $

What you'll love: This weighted blanket comes in 15-, 20-, and 35-pound versions, and measures 4 feet by 6 feet or 7.5 feet by 7.5 feet, depending on your preferred weight. While king and queen sizes are available, the company recommends the blankets not be shared by couples who might disrupt each other's sleep, since using one is supposed to be a "grounding" experience. It's made of breathable fabrics, and both the weighted inner layer and outer duvet cover are machine-washable.

Keep in mind: This pick is only available in heavier weights, so if you're looking to just dip your toes into weighted blankets, you might want to opt for one with more weight options.

Rave review:  "It literally feels as you're being snuggled and it's a pretty awesome feeling, to say the least," shared one customer . "I'm tickled that a friend recommended this item to me as I suffer from severe anxiety and panic disorder along with insomnia and this blanket truly helps with these conditions. I was in doubt when purchasing the Gravity Blanket due to the price but I have to admit it's well worth the money spent. " 

Softest Cover: Blanquil Quilted Weighted Blanket

What you'll love:  This 48-by-74-inch cotton blanket is encased in an ultra-soft polyester microfiber that makes it look and feel incredibly luxurious. Tiny plastic pellets are distributed evenly across the blanket in stitched pockets, which gives it a stylish, quilted look. If you're a fairly indecisive person, this weighted blanket for adults is only offered in 15 pounds and comes with a removable gray cover that's neutral enough to fit seamlessly into your home.  

Keep in mind:  The weighted blanket stays securely in place with the help of ties (like a duvet cover and insert), but some noted that the ties can come undone, resulting in uneven weight.

Rave review:  "No, seriously the cover is so soft! If you never pet a bunny before you'll know what it feels like after you buy this blanket," raved a shopper
