Let me tell you how a high quality bamboo sleep set became my best friend. Night sweats, hot flashes, fluctuating body temperature. Most women around the age of 50 experience these unpleasant signs of menopause caused by fluctuating hormones and decreased estrogen. Some have such severe symptoms that can interfere with quality of life and often sleep.
There are things that one can do to decrease these embarrassing symptoms including:
- Lose weight
- Control room temperature
- Reduce alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods
- Drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration
- Dress in layers
This last point was the best advice I was given. Tank tops and cardigans were my friend during menopause. I also found that dressing in layers was a great option for sleepwear as I experienced terrible night sweats.
I found the best bamboo sleep set from Efforts Eco-Essentials. A nightgown and robe set made from 70% rayon from bamboo and 30% organic cotton jersey kept me comfortable while I experienced these fluctuations in body temperature.
I did a bit of research and found what makes bamboo material so great for women in peri-menopause and menopause.
- Temperature regulating
Bamboo fabric has the ability to keep you warm but also has superior breathability to keep you cool during a night sweat.
Bamboo fabric absorbs sweat keeping you drier.
Bamboo fabric is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, hypo-allergenic and odour-resistant which is especially important for a woman who is sweating.
- Super soft and comfy
Bamboo fabric is luxuriously soft and comfortable
The Efforts sleep set is great for lounging and sleeping. When I would get too hot I would take off the robe and still look stylish in my nightgown. I even used the nightgown as a bathing suit cover up while on vacation! I also love this set because bamboo is sustainable, requires little water to grow and items made from bamboo are biodegradable.
If you are looking for sleepwear that will keep you cool and comfortable and allow a better night’s sleep don’t hesitate to get this set from Efforts. It makes a great gift for any woman going through menopause or not.
Efforts Eco Essentials has a wide variety of hemp and bamboo clothing styles to choose from for both men and women at very reasonable prices. They also have the fabrics for sale as well, and they will ship anywhere in North America.
