Vanessa shorts look and feel

The Vanessa shorts are incredibly comfortable made from our signature jersey knit hemp/organic cotton fabric. The shorts have an elastic waistband with a full drawstring so that you can easily adjust the waistband for your comfort. Shorts are midlength on the thigh - not too short and not too long. They are super comfortable and do not ride up if used for sleeping. 

Our comfy fabric goes to work the minute it touches your skin, drawing the heat and moisture away from you. Best of all, during the chill phase of a hot flash, the fabric releases some of that heat back to you so you stay comfortable.

Like all of our apparel, the Vanessa shorts:

  • dry super fast so you may not even notice it was damp
  • manage heat and chills so you feel more comfortable during a flash
  • promote less tossing, turning and flipping covers at night so you wake up feeling rested, refreshed and you can get on with your day
  • need washing less often due to the naturally anti-bacterial fabric
  • are a versatile style so you can wear them day or night or whenever
  • are backed by a 60-day money back guarantee so you can try it to see if it’s right for you with no risk.



  • Money back guarantee
  • Secure checkout
  • Made in Canada

Size Guidance

Our S/M model, Nadia, is 5'5" (165 cm) and 115 lbs (52 kgs). Plenty of room to spare. Our shorts fit quite roomy and will fit comfortably up to size 10, and tighter on a size 12. If you're on the cusp of a size and prefer loose fitting, we recommend you order up a size.

Our L/XL model, Lisa, is 5'8.5" (174 cm) and 190 lbs (88 kgs). Lisa is at the top end of the L/XL size.


Light weight jersey knit: 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton

Our unique fabric wicks away sweat and manages heat all night long so you stay comfortable and are able to sleep longer.

Product Care

You've purchased great products to help you live more comfortably, so now you want them to last as long as possible. Our clothes are so well-made that they can last for three years or longer if they are looked after properly.

The fabric we chose for our products has some wonderful benefits. For our lounge/sleepwear, we use a hemp/cotton blend knit. It's soft, stretchy, and lasts a really long time. It won't pill or run.

To keep your new clothing looking its best, we recommend washing it in cold water with regular detergent and hanging to dry. Alternatively, put in the dryer, on low heat. 

Please DON'T use:

  • Fabric softener or
  • Dryer sheets. 

These products will coat the fabric and block the pores in the fibres which won't be able to do their job of wicking the heat away from you. 

We use dryer balls which work pretty well to soften laundry. Wool balls also help speed the drying time.

Cathy's Promise: our Wear It And Love It 60-Day Guarantee - Canada and US only

We’re convinced that you will sleep better and feel better in our nightgown, however, we also understand that you might find it difficult to part with your money without knowing whether or not something is going to work for you.

That’s why we have a Wear it and Love it 60 Day Guarantee. We want you to sleep in it and – yes – wash it – as many times as you need to, to really make sure the purchase is right for you. We believe that after sleeping in (or even just lounging in) your new nightgown, you will love it so much you will never want to part with it.

Still not convinced? Go back to your old sleepwear and compare

If you’ve been sleeping in it for a few weeks and you’re still not sure, we suggest you go back to your old sleepwear and try it again to feel the difference. We’re sure that after you compare your old sleepwear with your Simone nightgown, you’ll be as convinced as we are that the Simone nightgown is a fantastic garment.

If after 60 days, you’re still not convinced it’s right for you, send us a note at and we’ll be happy to send you a return shipping barcode that you can print and use on an envelope to send back to us.


The Fine Print


If you’re on the fence about which size is right for you and have ordered one of each size, it would be helpful to us -- a teeny, tiny, little, company -- if, once you’ve decided which style is right for you, you contact us to send the other one back WITHOUT wearing it as soon as possible so we can resell it. Thank you for your understanding.


When we cannot accept a used nightgown

If you have been wearing your new nightgown for a while and have washed and worn it and have damaged it (ie., if there are any bleach stains (bleach will ruin the fabric), small tears or holes, if you have altered in any way, dyed it, shrunk it, embroidered it, etc…), we will not be able to refund your money. So please, follow the washing and drying instructions (it WILL shrink in a hot dryer) to ensure that you are taking care of your nightgown.

Our Gift to You

Our products are commonly used as sleepwear for night sweats which are in turn caused by hormone changes during menopause. We created a tracking journal to help you identify triggers that might be making your night sweats worse. If you can identify the triggers, you can eliminate them and, hopefully, decrease the severity of your night sweats. We include this journal automatically with every apparel purchase.

The CoolYourSweats Difference

Here's the reality: the majority of apparel manufacturers use fabric that is inadequate to handle the unique needs of women with hot flashes or night sweats.

That's why we set out to disrupt the apparel market by using a natural, hemp/organic cotton blend that was selected specifically to manage hot flashes and night sweats.

We are the ONLY hot flash clothing providers using hemp blends to help women stay comfortable through a hot flash. Our fabric was tested and selected base on our founder's personal experience with night sweats. She used her professional expertise to find the right fabric.

Cathy's 60-Day Promise

Cathy selected and tested fabrics until she had the right one to keep her comfortable during her night sweats. Having said that, we understand that women experience hot flashes and night sweats in different ways and some fabrics will work for some, and others won't. We want you to be confident in your purchase, that's why we offer a 60-day "wear it and love it" guarantee. That's right, you have 60 days (or nights) to wear it and test it, sleep in it, wash it, and make sure it's right for you. If you find it doesn't work for you, contact us to arrange for the return and a full refund.
