So you’ve heard about the coziest blanket on earth but can’t wrap your mind around it until you read a Barefoot Dreams blanket review. I’m right there with you!
I will admit, when I first heard about how much the blankets in the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic collection were, I was flabbergasted.
You want me to pay how much? For a blanket? That isn’t weaved from gold?
Sure, that might be pocket change for the Kardashians and Chrissy Tegan – who are known to be huge fans of the brand. But some of us don’t have deep pocket and actually live off just what we earn each day!
Dropping upwards of $150 bucks for something you can get at Target for less than $10 bucks seemed ridiculous.
The more I read about the softest blanket, the more I got to thinking that this cozy blanket might actually be a worthwhile investment.
After all, we spend so much of our time snoozing in bed or snuggled up on the couch: might as well do it in comfort and style, right?
Yes, I ended up scooping up the $$$ Barefoot Dreams CozyChic cardigan. But a comforter? Let’s talk about some of the key features of this luxury blanket and comforter to find out if it actually lives up to the hype in this blog post.
Sizes and Quality
You can pick up a BD plush blanket in a range of different colors and patterns. The standard size for most Barefoot Dreams blankets is 54 x 72″. So whether like to have your own or prefer to share, you’ll certainly find one big and fluffy enough!
The actual blanket comes exactly as you’d expect from a standard large rectangular blanket. Need this cozy must-have for a baby? You’ll love the CozyChic Ultra Lite Plaid Baby Bundle.
Some have tassels or other additions but essentially, what you see is what you get. 54×72 inches of pure perfection!
As far as quality goes, we can’t expect anything less from Barefoot Dreams. To put things in perspective, my BD CozyChic Lite cardigan is a must-have during the winter or when I travel for work in Alaska.
If this holds true, then the quality of blanket you’ll get from Barefoot Dreams will be rivaled by none. Yes, you can get a comforter for a cheaper price, but it won’t feel the same.
At this price, you would expect them to be made of cashmere or something, but no!
Every single blanket in the CozyChic range is made from a hundred percent polyester microfiber.
You might be asking: why are Barefoot Dreams blankets so popular if they’re hugely expensive yet made of synthetic materials?
Unfortunately, I and the millions of other fans around the world don’t have the answer to this question! But what I can tell you is that 9 out of 10, this is the softest throw blanket you’ll find anywhere.
It’s practically impossible to describe the appeal of their softness. You just have to get your hands on one of these microfiber blankets.
Trust me, it isn’t just influencers who are falling in love with them because they have been paid to: these babies are popular for a reason!
Super soft blankets and comforters were a top-seller among LPV readers because they make an amazing gift for family and friends.
Colors and Styles – Are There Plenty To Choose From?
Now, one thing BD definitely have you covered with is a hugely versatile range of cozy comforters to pick between.
There are so many different colors and patterns available when it comes to blankets and throws.
Soft neutral and pastel tones, bright bold shades, funky checks, spots, stripes… just about anything! You’re sure to find one to suit any aesthetic. Love print? Try the leopard blanket!
Disney fans will be thrilled by the range of stunning snuggly options, from Frozen, Cinderella, and Toy Story to Dumbo and Bambi – they’ve even got some Minnie and Mickey designs to choose from, including the classic mouse ears logo.
One of the most popular 100% polyester blankets is definitely the In The Wild blanket. This plush throw blanket is huge and adorned with leopard print (and much-hyped by Chrissy Teigan!).

Maintenance – How Hard Is Keeping It Cozy?
At this price tag, it’s safe to ask all these questions: do Barefoot Dreams blankets wash well? Are they easy to take care of? Will they last for a long time? You’ll be pleased to know that yes, you can machine wash your CozyChic blanket.
According to the Barefoot Dreams website, it’s sage to throw your BD products in your washer, but they do not respond well to heat. It is recommended that you only ever wash it on a delicate or gentle cycle with cold water and gentle detergent.
Likewise, don’t be tempted to use fabric softener (yes, really!) or any potentially harsh chemicals when you’re washing your blanket, as this is guaranteed to compromise its supreme softness.
Barefoot Dreams also suggest that you stick to air drying their products. But if you must throw it in the dryer, be sure to do so on the lowest possible setting and without the use of a dryer sheet.
Again, this is imperative to retain the ridiculously soft feeling of this blanket! It’s also suggested that you always neatly fold your blanket when not in use to prevent unwanted pilling or stretching.

Where Should I Get My Barefoot Dreams Blanket?
Unfortunately, BD has been the victim of a great number of counterfeit brands trying to profit off of their success. This means there are plenty of fakes across the net, and you need to be careful to make sure the product you receive is authentic.
As explained in the ‘Authenticity’ section of their FAQs, you should only ever purchase Barefoot Dreams products directly from their website, www.barefootdreams.com, an authorized retailer like Nordstrom, Zappos, and certain Amazon retailers, or one of their verified brick and mortar stores. Runaway if you see BD comforters on Alibaba (major red flag!).
Barefoot Dreams Blanket: Are They Worth It?
Yes, Barefoot Dreams blankets are worth it. If you have upwards of a hundred and fifty bucks to spend on a blanket, then yes – they definitely live up to the hype. I couldn’t tell you why, but they are just so impossibly soft, it almost feels illegal.
However, I would highly recommend that you have a little patience and try to snag one during their #NSALE blanket sale if you can. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great opportunity to score this blanket at a more reasonable price (though they still tend to cost more than the average blanket would!).
Other FAQ About Barefoot Dreams
Yes, Barefoot Dreams is legit. HOWEVER, be mindful of where you purchase from, as there have been a few reports of inauthentic BD products floating around. Get yours from Barefoot Dreams official website, Nordstrom, Zappos, Dillards, or one of the above Authorized Amazon Retailers.
This may be a combination of a few things – using harsh detergent, fabric softeners, dryer sheets, bleach, and even your water. To restore softness, try washing your BD product with gentle detergent (or none at all) and add a cup of white vinegar. Air dry.
This is one question I’ve wrestled with the most. Just the way Lululemon commands a price tag of $98+ for a pair of leggings (that you can get for $20), Barefoot Dreams are the creme de la creme of cozy blankets. Yes, you can get an alternative for $10 at Target, but you’ll never go back you try Barefoot Dreams products.
Yes, Barefoot Dreams blankets are warm, soft, and plush.
Scam! Scam! Scam!! Do not shop there.
Barefoot Dreams is located in Malibu, California. And some of their products are made outside the country (imported).
At this time, the brand does not offer exclusive student discount.
It’s no doubt that Barefoot Dreams blankets and cardigans are undeniably soft. You’ll feel like you’re cozily wrapped in a piece of heaven.
Although these microfiber pieces might be perfect for blanket weather, they can be used all year round in your living spaces. And they are always a welcome gift for the person who has everything.
The size of your BD blanket is large enough to be comfortably used by someone that is super tall. And caring for your blanket is not terribly difficult.
Can’t decide on which Barefoot Dreams blanket to get? You can’t go wrong with any of these bestsellers:
- Barefoot Dreams® In the Wild Throw Blanket (Nordstrom | BD website | Amazon)
- Barefoot Dreams® CozyChic™ Throw Blanket (Nordstrom | BD website | Amazon)
