What Are Wicking Pajamas?
There’s been much talk about wicking pajamas for night sweats lately. So what exactly are these night sweat pajamas and how do they work?
Wicking sleepwear is made of a micro fiber wicking fabric. The fabric pulls the moisture and heat away from the skin to the outside of the fabric, so that the body stays dry and cool. The second feature of this fabric is it’s quick drying ability. Once the moisture is drawn through the fabric it dries rapidly. In fact it dries twice as fast as cotton. Cool-jams, one of the most affordable brands uses a fabric called moisture wicking smart fabric which seems to sense what the body needs to be comfortable. It keeps the body cool and dry when it’s warm outside and dry and cozy when the weather gets cooler.
There are many reasons for night sweats …chemotherapy, certain medications, thyroid condition, diabetes, obesity 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. Cool-jams is now offering a FREE PAJAMA GIVE AWAY. Enter the contest by going to this Cool-jams link. Good luck to you all!!
