I bought a 15 lbs one. I like it but takes some getting used to.
I tried directly on me. No go.
I tried it on top of the bed. Worked so so.
Then I put it on top of the sheet it works the best there.

I am 6' 1" 220 lbs but they take some getting used to.
I like them...

I have a 15lb weighted blanket.. It helps me especially with leg pain and
anxiety. I don't find it too heavy and I am small.
Olga, thanks for mentioning the cooler cover. I will have to look for one.
I really didn't think I'd like it, but I do. hope this helps:)

If you have a neck issue and it causes pain in your shoulder, sometimes putting a lighter weight smaller blanket on the shoulder so that it pulls the shoulder downwards and walk with it and will make the neck and shoulder feel better.
