Weighted Blanket Review – Popular Rated King Sizes

If you are looking for a weighted blanket review on King sizes, you might have already discovered that they are hard to come by. Research for this article confirmed the paucity. Fewer brands carry the King size although there are several King sized weighted blankets that are popular purchases and highly rated. This write-up provides a round-up review of these top-rated weighted blankets. A few manufacturers do not provide adequate information

The benefits of weighted blankets are discussed in previous articles – Washable Weighted Blankets and Weighted Blankets for Seniors. There is some limited evidence that the gentle pressure these blankets exert on the body appears to trigger the production of serotonin (a feel-good chemical) giving the “warm fuzzy feeling of hugging or swaddling” which is claimed to help relieve the symptoms of certain conditions (Shortsleeve 2019).

Know Your Size – Dimensions of King Sized Weighted Blankets

King-sized weighted blankets are not similarly sized across all brands.

True King size is typically 88″ x 104″ and these come in 20-30 lb weighted. Several manufacturers market their King size as 80″ x 87″ and this comes in 20-25 lb weighted

NOTE: Most King size weighted blankets on sale are the 80″x87″ and are MUCH SMALLER THAN NORMAL BLANKETS AND WILL NOT COVER THE ENTIRE BED. If your preference is to have the blanket drape over the edges of the bed, you will be looking at the 88″ x 104″ size. It is always recommended that you measure your bed before shopping as this will guide your decision-making.

King Sizes – Weighted Blanket Review

A weighted blanket does not work for everyone. It usually takes about 1 week for the user to adapt to the weight.

It is recommended that you select a lighter weight if you are unsure about how heavy you can bear.

King-sized weighted blankets are generally not recommended for feeble seniors and the elderly. Because the blanket is weighted and heavy, it is usually not easy to pull over the face. Feeble seniors and the elderly should, however, use the lightest weighted blanket to avoid becoming trapped underneath the blanket, or injured if they are unable to remove the blanket in a situation where they may feel too hot and uncomfortable.

Do not allow pets to bite or scratch blankets. Do not allow sharp objects to pierce the blanket.

  2. Ceci,

    A lot of my friends and family have started getting weighted blankets more and more. Even kids are starting to love them. I’ve often been curious about them. but I haven’t made the commitment to buy one yet, but I think that’s because I’m stuck on my current blanket too much to give it up. I suppose once that wears out, I’ll look into the weighted ones. But I have a lot of friends that have been looking for the King size, so this is perfect to share with them!

    Thanks for this review!

    Katrina
