How the Right Menopause Underwear Can Help You Beat Hot Flushes

Julie May underwear for menopause


Almost 80% of women would experience hot flushes or night sweats, or both during menopause, according to new research funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. This makes hot flashes one of the most common symptoms of menopause. Aside from being painfully challenging to deal with, hot flashes are also linked with other symptoms in women such as stress and anxiety. Our goal in this post is to highlight how specially made menopause underwear can help with keeping menopause hot flashes under control.

Organic Pima Cotton And Silk As The Most Breathable Fabric To Wear

Synthetic fabrics like polyester, nylon, and similar ones are bad at managing heat and moisture. This is why your body may easily get overheated when wearing underwear products made from synthetic fabrics like these. Heat sets up your skin for itching. And when you constantly scratch the affected skin area, it helps eczema spread to other places. Not just that, it also opens up the skin area to sweating and skin infection. A good example of breathable fabric is the JulieMay range of comfort bras, all made from certified organic Pima cotton, complete with silk inner linings to further keep the skin cool. Along with cotton, silk is also one of the best fabrics when it comes to cooling down the skin, wicking away moisture, and regulating temperature. Products like this easily help to reduce the heat trapped around the genital area and make women feel more comfortable. JulieMay's Pima Cotton & Silk Collections Are Free From Harmful Dyes And Synthetic Fibres:

Moisture-Wicking And Cooling Technologies

JulieMay Lingerie offers moisture-wicking and cooling technologies in their designs. These features help to draw moisture away from the body and keep women feeling cool and dry during hot flushes. This is why Juliemay offers menopause underwear products made from a combo of both organic cotton and pure silk linings. The 100% Pure Silk bra linings and underwear inner layers help menopausal women get the best of both worlds whether it’s keeping the body cool and dry or wicking moisture away during sweaty moments, especially at night.

Allergy-Free With Anti-Irritation Properties

Hot flashes can cause sweating, leading to unpleasant odours. Choosing underwear with anti-odour properties can help minimize this issue and keep women feeling fresh and comfortable.

Allergy-free underwear is also highly recommended to avoid heat rashes, hives, and other conditions that could be triggered when someone comes in contact with products containing substances they could be allergic to. Seriously consider avoiding synthetic fibres like nylon or polyester as well as underwear with metals like nickel and more if you are allergic to those.

Talking of allergic skin reactions, chemicals such as dyes, phthalates, flame retardants, and others, used during the manufacturing process of most underwear products can induce allergic skin reactions in people with sensitive skin during menopause. Hypoallergenic underwear products like the dye-free organic cotton underwear products will ensure you don’t get to experience any skin reactions and irritations that may worsen hot flushes during menopause.

JulieMay Lingerie is the only brand that has been accredited by AllergyUK to be friendly for people with allergic reactions to synthetic fibres and sensitive skins after breast surgeries. Our collections have been approved by qualified dermatologists to be hypoallergenic.

Anti Hot Flushes Nightdress

Tight-fitting underwear can trap heat and exacerbate hot flashes. Opting for loose-fitting underwear can help minimize the discomfort caused by hot flashes and allow air to circulate more freely around the body. Another good example, in this case, is the 100% Pure Silk Camisole Top In White from JulieMay. It fits loosely and is perfect for avoiding the dreaded night sweats during menopause. The luxuriously silky feel of this nightwear makes it the perfect choice for hot flashes and night sweats during menopause.

Anti-Chafe Full-Waisted Briefs

Besides bras and tops, you may need some comfy drawers during your menopause to feel good. The anti-chafe full waisted briefs are lightweight and use soft-touch fabric. They have an anti-bacterial coatinganti-flush pure silk inner layers designed with a pure silk leg cuff to avoid rubbing or chafing your inner legs.

Other Lifestyle Changes To Help Manage Hot Flashes

While the hormonal changes during menopause could be mostly responsible for the hot flashes we often experience as our body transitions during perimenopause, other lifestyle choices we make could also contribute to this. Some of the most common factors aside from menopause that coil also induce hot flashes include;

  • Staying hydrated to keep the body cool

  • Reducing stress through meditation or yoga

  • Avoiding triggers such as spicy foods and alcohol, and

  • Regular exercise

We’ve highlighted several factors to consider when choosing menopause underwear such as going for breathable fabrics, choosing loose-fitting lingerie, and avoiding synthetic fibers, among other things. By taking these factors into consideration when selecting underwear, women undergoing symptoms of menopause will find it less challenging to stay cool and comfortable during hot flashes and manage their symptoms more effectively. The products we have featured about are some of the best you’ll want to get to keep hot flashes during menopause under control.

Underwear for menopause

The secret of Julie May products lies in the genius combo of breathable organic Pima cotton and inner linings made from 100% pure silk. These underwear products also do away with metals like nickels, as well as synthetics, latex, and some of the harsh chemicals and dyes used in conventional underwear products that often causes allergy issues for women with sensitive skin. When it comes to keeping cool and staying comfortable in your own skin, it never gets better than this!

The symptoms of menopause could be quite uncomfortable, so coping with these symptoms can prove very challenging. But choosing high-quality underwear products can make coping with these a lot less challenging.
