What Are Wicking Pajamas?
There has been a lot of talk about pajamas for night sweats lately. So what exactly are these night sweat pajamas and how do they work? Most of these pajamas are made of a micro fiber wicking fabric. The fabric pulls the moisture away from the skin to the outside of the fabric, so that you don't feel the moisture. The second feature of this fabric is it’s quick drying ability. Once the moisture is drawn through the fabric it dries rapidly. Most wicking fabrics dry 3 times faster than cotton.
There are many reasons for night sweats …chemotherapy, certain medications, thyroid condition, diabetes, obesity, Andropause( male menopause) and anxiety to name a few, but the primary reason for night sweats in women are the hormonal fluctuations which occur just before menopause and during menopause. Night sweats are not dangerous, but they can certainly be annoying.
If you suffer from night sweats for whatever reason, moisture wicking pajamas might be your answer to a comfortable night’s sleep.
