By now, everyone is probably familiar with the hype around weighted blankets.

They can potentially improve your quality of sleep, decrease feelings of anxiety and provide comfort, but you can’t bring your weighted blanket with you everywhere you go. They’re heavy, after all!

So if you’ve ever wished you could wear a weighted blanket out into the world, Richer Poorer’s new weighted T-shirt may be just what you’re looking for.

The shirts are available for both men and women and come in various solid colors.

This weighted shirt is 100 percent organic cotton and weighs about 180 gsm. The women’s tee style is slightly oversized while the men’s has a slim fit, but both are sure “to keep you calm, cool, and collected.”

Now, let’s cut to the chase. Weighted blankets are usually between 10 and 20 pounds so that this shirt won’t give you the exact same feeling, but it will feel heavier on your body than your typical T-shirt. Also, this shirt doesn’t require any special care. The brand simply suggests washing it inside out on cold.

So if you can appreciate the look and feel of a heavier, higher quality T-shirt, then this one is for you. And while it retails at just over $40, no closet is complete without a least two or three solid T-shirts that can be worn with anything.
