Different life stages such as pregnancy, menopause, cancer treatments, or many other health issues, can cause night sweats that impact your quality of sleep and therefore your quality of life. Investing in a product that feels great, keeps you cool, and holds up after wash and wear, can be life changing.
Imagine! No more in and out of bed, no more changing the sheets, no more hot flashes turned into freezing shivers.
We are always on the look out for technologically advanced products that solve the problems women struggle with in their every day life. So what goes into the technology that can change the way you rest for good?
Quality fabrics woven to pull moisture away from the body and spread it throughout the fibers, allowing it to dry more quickly, is the key. Many fabrics are designed to do this; some naturally, others with the help of science. Wicking fabrics are highly permeable, allowing moisture to find an easy way through the fabric to the outside and dispersing it across a large area so that it can evaporate quickly. Some fabrics are chemically treated to ensure they do not retain moisture, or to kill odours in the fabrics. You are left with sleepwear that keeps you comfortable and dry all night long, and holds up with wash and wear.
Natural Moisture Wicking Fabrics
Bamboo is a natural wicking fabric that is inquired into most often at The Bra Lounge. Because it is also naturally antibacterial, it keeps odours at bay, and its soft feel is great for those with sensitivities or allergies. Bamboo is a sustainable resource and grows very quickly, making it more environmentally friendly than other fabrics, such as cotton, which actually requires a lot of water to produce.
A new brand to The Bra Lounge, Paper Label Sleep, uses Eucalyptus fibres in their core collection, which is luxuriously soft and breathable, keeping you cool and comfortable all night.
Did you know that Cotton actually creates a barrier, holding moisture against your body? And polyester, while being a moisture wicking material, contains the wetness instead of releasing it and often feel cold. Even worse.. they hold odours and will begin to smell over time.
Moisture wicking lounge and sleepwear should be an essential item in your luggage! Rolled up or folded, it always packs small and is wrinkle resistant. Being lightweight and breathable makes it comfortable for any climate - just get a layering piece for the plane and once you've reached your warmer destination you'll already be ready!
Note: Bamboo blocks up to 97.5% of harmful UV rays, making it a perfect fabric for travel!
