Every hot flushing woman needs these pyjamas


If you are anything like me and get the odd hot flush or night sweats, you would do anything that you possibly can to help.

And let’s be honest, I’d do handstands while chanting to the hot flush gods, covered in snake serum if I thought it would make a difference!

Well, I may have the answer. It’s a ‘cooling’ range of sleepwear, that could help regulate your body temperature.

Menopause, or ‘the change of life’, affects most of of us women by the time we turn 50, and for some, even earlier, and what’s worse, it can last on average seven years, sometimes longer and those unpleasant symptoms of menopause can often include hot flushes, night sweats, aches and pains, irritability, and fatigue, and can be exacerbated by a range of daily lifestyle, environmental and dietary factors.

Hot flush friendly sleepwear

As many of us seek new ways to manage these symptoms, lifestyle-turned-fashion brand, Chilly Towel, has unveiled its latest range of sleepwear designed to assist women prone to hot flushes, night sweats and general overheating.

Made from an innovative woven fibre fabric, the new Dry Chill sleepwear range draws moisture away from the skin by encouraging breathability and coolness throughout the night. Antibacterial and antimicrobial, the quick-drying fabric eliminates odour-causing bacteria on the skin while reducing sweat, discomfort, and irritation.

The range, which include a camisole (I am currently trying this), short, pant and nightie ensemble, is proven to withstand over 25,000 abrasion and pilling tests and maintain colour vibrancy and shape after multiple washes.

Designed locally to flatter a range of realistic body shapes and sizes, Chilly Towel’s founder, Tara Lock, says the range has been developed with the everyday female in mind.

“Our customers come from many walks of life, so it was important to have a range that is desirable by younger women, mature women, women going through menopause, women who are pregnant, and women who simply want to look and feel good during the warmer months,” said Tara.

“All garments in our Dry Chill range are lightweight and hypoallergenic and available in sizes up to 4XL,” she continued.

Lightweight and comfortable cooling sleepwear (perfect for those hot flushes)

Originally launched in 2015 with the Instant Cooling Towel, Chilly Towel became a popular option for women and men seeking relief from fevers, menopausal hot flushes, headaches, sport injuries, overheating and pregnancy.

Made from a unique hyper-evaporative fibre that is dry to the touch when wet and cools to 30 degrees below average body temperature, the Instant Cooling Towel remains cold for hours and won’t stain clothing or bedding when in use.

Partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), $2 from every sale of the pink Instant Cooling Towel goes towards raising vital funds for breast cancer research in Australia.

The Dry Chill range of cooling sleepwear, including the Instant Cooling Towel, is available nationwide via Chilly Towel’s website.
