What Are Wicking Pajamas

There’s been much talk about pajamas for night sweats lately. This type of sleepwear is sometimes called wicking sleepwear or menopause sleepwear. So what exactly are these night sweat pajamas and how do they work?

These pajamas are made of a micro fiber wicking fabric. This fabric pulls the moisture away from the skin to the outside of the fabric, so that the body stays dry. 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 three times as fast as cotton. One of the top performing brands Cool-jams 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. Cool-jams are available online at

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.
