Our Blankets Work Like a Dream
Our luxury personal weighted blanket makes it easy for you to fall asleep naturally waking up refreshed and rested, ready to conquer your day! Expertly designed and styled in Germany.
Weighted blankets have been recommended to help with Sleep Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Restless Leg Syndrome, and much more. It works on the principles of “Deep Pressure Therapy”, which has been shown to decrease levels of “cortisol” (a stress hormone) and increase the natural hormones “serotonin” and “melatonin” which are responsible for sleep. The weight of the blanket also reduces tossing and turning helping you relax, fall asleep faster and promotes a deeper sleep.
Time to Feel Good Again
Weighted blankets mimic the effect of being held, giving the feeling of a “warm comforting hug” which relaxes the parasympathetic nervous system promoting the deep calming effect of a reassuring embrace. Using a weighted blanket as a throw during the day can help keep anxiety at bay giving you the very calming effect of being hugged or cuddled so, you can wrap yourself in bliss on the couch or in your home office any time you need it. Try using our weighted blanket when meditating for a more relaxing experience.

7 Ultra-Plush Layers
Weighted blankets should be smaller than your ordinary duvet as they’re designed to focus the weight on you without hanging over the side of the bed (which would make it even heavier). It should be smaller than your mattress to help concentrate the right amount of weight on your body. They’re designed to fit on top of the mattress only, with minimal to no overhang for optimal effect.
A weighted blanket can also be used for pressure therapy over specific body parts like shoulders or knees. Wrap yourself up in it to relax and unwind before bedtime. Meditation using the Hotlifestyle weighted blanket can give you a deeper relaxing experience.
Some people need time, to get used to how a weighted blanket feels. If you’re new to this, start by wrapping yourself in the blanket while sitting on the sofa for 20 minutes before bedtime. As you get used to the feeling, gradually increase the amount of time before sleeping under it.
The General Rule
Body Weight 8-13 st | 50-80 kg >> 7 kg blanket.
Body Weight 13-17 st | 80-110 kg >> 9 kg blanket.
Body Weight 17+ st | 110+ kg >> 11 kg blanket.
If your body weight falls equally between two blanket weights, it’s best to choose the lighter option. Remember that if you buy the duvet cover with it, this will add extra weight to your blanket. Adding a cover will increase the weight of the blanket.
Different people have different needs
Some people who have serious sleep disorders or suffer significant anxiety issues, have found that heavier blankets of around 15% – 20% of their body weight work better.
It’s quite common for some women to experience sleep problems during pregnancy. The Hotlifestyle® weighted blanket is ideal for promoting a better night’s sleep whilst pregnant, whether at the beginning of your pregnancy or towards the end. Do consult with a medical practitioner first.
Hotlifestyle® weighted blankets can be used by anyone, on condition the weight has been chosen correctly and they are able to remove the weighted blanket by themselves.
We hope you enjoy our new design!
Are you using glass or plastic beads?
We only use eco-friendly, hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, odourless glass pearls.
What is the pocket size?
Unlike other blankets we chose a smaller 8cm square pocket. This ensures the blanket maintains an even weight distribution no matter how much it’s tossed around.
The blanket seems too small to hang over the bed properly.
The weighted blanket is designed to fit on the mattrass with no overhang which would change how the weight is distributed.
Do I have to buy a duvet cover?
No you don’t, but we recommend you use a sheet between you and the blanket to help protect it.
We recommend that you hand wash your weighted blanket or if machine wash, cold at a maximum of 40 degrees on a gentle cycle setting, choosing a bleach-free, gentle detergent.
Avoid fabric softeners.
After a hand wash remove the weighted blanket from the water container to drain it. Take some time to carefully squeeze any excess water out of your blanket and don’t wring it.
It can take up to 24 hours for your weighted blanket to dry depending on weather conditions.
Don’t dry clean, don’t bleach or iron.
Please Note – anyone suffering from a medical condition, or is pregnant, should seek medical advice before using a weighted blanket.
