If you suffer from hot flashes and night sweats you’ll understand just how awful it is to be in fabric that locks heat and moisture next to your skin. If the fabric you’re wearing is made from thick cotton, polyester, silk or wool, you’ll probably want to take it off – no matter where you are. Of course, unless you’re at home alone it’s downright impossible to do this. At night, night sweats will have you flipping your covers on and off all night long, leading to a horrible sleep.
What is Thermo-Regulating Fabric?
Thermo-regulating fabric is fabric that adapts to your body's temperature fluctuations. It helps create a balanced microclimate around you, providing optimal comfort by regulating heat and moisture. This type of fabric responds to changes in temperature, ensuring you stay cool when you’re hot and warm when you’re cold. In general, thermo-regulating fabric is available as a high-tech synthetic or treated fabric (which we don't recommend), or fabric made from natural (plant or animal) sources that grows that way (our preferred choice).
Benefits for Women with Hot Flashes and Night Sweats:
Temperature Regulation: Thermo-regulating fabric acts as a natural thermostat for your body, allowing heat to dissipate and maintaining a cooler environment. When a hot flash strikes, the fabric absorbs excess heat and helps to cool you down, reducing the intensity and duration of your discomfort.
Moisture Management: Night sweats can leave you feeling damp and uncomfortable. Thermo-regulating fabric has moisture-wicking properties, drawing moisture away from your skin and promoting faster evaporation. This helps to keep you dry and prevents that sticky feeling that can disrupt your sleep.
Breathability: The fabric is designed to be highly breathable, allowing air to circulate freely. This increased airflow helps to prevent heat and moisture buildup, reducing the likelihood of triggering hot flashes or exacerbating night sweats. The improved breathability also contributes to a more comfortable and fresh feeling throughout the day.
Embracing Comfort and Confidence: While thermo-regulating fabric cannot cure hot flashes and night sweats, it offers an innovative solution to alleviate discomfort and help you regain control. By providing temperature regulation, moisture management, breathability, and overall comfort, it allows you to embrace your daily activities and sleep more peacefully.
