Online followers are showing their support for this peculiar sleeping hack. One user said, “This looks insane… brb trying it,” with another saying, “I’m gonna try this.” Others are freaking out, suggesting that it would give them a panic attack.

This trend isn’t just about looking funny; there’s science behind it. Dr. Jessica Andrade believes the swaddling effect mimics comfort similar to being tightly wrapped. The gentle pressure from the sweatshirt creates a cocoon-like feeling akin to a weighted blanket, promoting relaxation and better sleep.

So, before splurging on pricey sleep masks, grab a clean sweatshirt, listen to some sweet sleep-inducing tunes, and test it out for yourself.
