Hot flashes and warm temperatures don’t stand a chance.
I may be in my thirties, but I’m convinced I suffer from early on-set menopause at night. Seriously. I’ve been known to sleep with the windows wide open in the dead of winter and with the fan on at night, and I’m still a total sweat factory. When summer rolls around, I toss and turn, shed layers, and search for the ‘cool spots’ in the sheets—I just can’t get comfortable. And waking up in a pool of your own sweat is not a cute look.
If you are like me and suffer from night sweats or menopausal hot flashes, choosing pajamas made of natural fibers like cotton and bamboo can be a huge game changer. Not only do they help you wick moisture, but they’re quick drying and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night. Other details, like loose-fitting silhouettes, short sleeves, and elastic waistbands can also make a difference in your comfort level at nighttime. Simply put, what you wear to bed has a big impact on the quality of your shuteye, especially if you’re a hot sleeper.
