How to Keep Cool in Clothing
If you suffer from hot flushes, finding clothes that will keep you feeling comfortable and confident can be a challenge.
A hot flush can be described as a feeling of sudden intense heat throughout the body which may be accompanied by excessive sweating, an increased heart rate, and skin that becomes flushed or blotchy.
Hot flushes are thought to be caused by changes in hormone levels and can occur at any time of the day or night when they are referred to as night sweats.
Suffering from hot flushes can be distressing, and the excessive sweating that they cause makes clothing become cold and clammy, further adding to the sufferer’s discomfort.
At night time this can result in disrupted and fitful sleep impacting upon the ability to function fully during the day, when the sufferer may feel self-conscious and distracted.
If you suffer from hot flushes you should be particularly careful about the type of clothing that you wear to help reduce discomfort and avoid the symptoms of a hot flush interfering too much with your day-to-day life.
Who may experience hot flushes?
Hot flushes can be experienced by anyone but are a common symptom of the menopause, experienced by 75% of menopausal women.
Other conditions that may cause hot flushes include:
• Cancer treatments.
• Thyroid problems.
• Anxiety and stress.
• Humid climates.
• Other conditions that involve significant hormonal changes.
When can fitted clothes help with hot flushes?
Whilst it may seem counterintuitive to wear fitted clothing, the effect the clothing will have depends entirely on the materials that they are made from.
Whilst it may be tempting to sleep naked or avoid undergarments during the day, this will not make you more comfortable.
This is because you are not managing the excess perspiration caused by a hot flush. Even without clothing close to your skin, a hot flush can still cause excess sweating, and this perspiration will then soak into your clothing or bedsheets. When your body then cools you will be left feeling cold, damp and uncomfortable.
The solution is to wear fitted clothes made from high quality, specialist fabric that is designed to manage excess perspiration to keep you feeling comfortable all day and night.
