It’s safe to say that we could all use a little comfort at this current juncture. And almost like they could sense the world’s tension, Brooklinen came to the rescue. The sleep-focused company released a new weighted comforter that customers are going to want to live under for the foreseeable future.

“This is worth the weight, y’all,” Brooklinen announced via Instagram on March 10. “The same quality and details you love about our standard comforters, now with balanced weight suggested to reduce anxiety and provide a more restful sleep.”

What sets the Brooklinen weighted comforter apart from a standard weighted blanket is its size range. The comforter is available in sizes and weights from Twin/Twin XL (which weighs 15 lbs) to King/California King (35 lbs). 

The weighted comforter comes equipped with corner loops so it can be attached to your regular duvet cover. Plus, its “baffle box” construction ensures that its weight is evenly distributed.

There’s quite a bit of research on how weighted blankets can reduce the stress hormone cortisol and boost sleep hormones serotonin and melatonin, making it easier to calm down at night and drift off. And if you need some anecdotal evidence, several Apartment Therapy editors and writers love theirs (even Busy Philipps is on board).

Brooklinen recommends you purchase a weighted comforter that is “roughly 10%” of your body weight, sizing up if you’re between sizes. And it’s pertinent to ease into your new sleep routine. The company says you should sleep with the weighted comforter only across your legs for the first five nights, then easing into half-body coverage the next few nights, and then finally covering up entirely once your body is used to the extra weight.

The Brooklinen weighted comforter regularly starts at $249, however, it’s currently on sale for 10% off its original price. So, if you’ve ever wanted to try the weighted blanket experience, now is a great time to dive in.
