If you've been having trouble sleeping (or even having uncharacteristically vivid dreams) during quarantine, you're not alone. From mattresses to white noise machines, there are plenty of products on the market designed to help improve the quality of your sleep. And while weighted blankets are an increasingly popular accessory, since they've been suggested to help reduce anxiety and promote better sleep, Brooklinen is here with its very own weighted comforter that you'll want to use every night.

The Weighted Comforter is crafted like Brooklinen's other best-selling comforters, since it's made from soft, breathable cotton sateen and features corner loops that make it easy to attach to your duvet cover. The weighted element comes from an interior layer of tiny glass microbeads. The construction of the comforter ensures that the microbeads are evenly distributed for optimal comfort and better sleep.

To buy: brooklinen.com, from $224 (originally $249)

This comforter is available in five weight options, ranging from 15 to 35 pounds. The brand says the comforter should be 10 percent of your body weight, and if you're between sizes, it's recommended to size up. There are also sizes available from twin XL to California King.

Brooklinen suggests easing into using the weighted comforter for the best results. On the brand's website, it recommends that you sleep with the comforter only across your legs for the first five nights of use. Then transition to covering half your body before working your way to using the comforter on your whole body every night. And should you decide to refresh your bedding with this comforter, Brooklinen also has a variety of stylish, minimalist duvet covers to help you complete the look.
