Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than a sweaty night’s sleep. The kind that keeps you up tossing and turning throughout the night, and worse, waking up in what feels like a pool of sweat – but sometimes, that’s exactly what we have to endure, especially for those of us suffering with menopausal hot flushes. Until now, that is.
American home ware retailer Bed & Bath Beyond has launched a specially made sheet set designed to keep the body cool throughout the night. The SHEEX Micro Balance 37.5 Performance Sheet Set is made with something called ‘37.5 technology’ which regulates your body temperature so you can stay comfortable and sweat-free.
Speaking to Good Housekeeping, textile analyst Lexie Sachs explained how the magic bedsheet works. ‘The science behind it is legitimate,’ she said. ‘The idea is that your body is most comfortable at 37.5 degrees celsius and 37.5% humidity, so it tries to create that environment for you. It uses volcanic sand and carbon from coconut shells that are embedded into the fabric and remove moisture from your body to help cool you down.’
And just in case you’re wondering, the material is very comfortable too according to Sachs. ‘The fabric is soft, smooth, and great to sleep on,’ she told the publication. ‘I’ve washed it many times and aside from slight pilling it’s held up well.’
However, the innovative product doesn’t come cheap. The sheet sets are priced between £130.31 and £162.90, and since Bed & Bath Beyond is an American company, expect to pay a shipping fee too. But for some, this may seem a small price to pay for a good nights sleep – especially if it’s built to last.
Menopausal hot flushes are inevitable for most women, whether you get them often or have only had to deal with them once or twice. Last week, ex Strictly Come Dancing contestant Susannah Constantine spoke candidly about her ‘mental menopause’, explaining both physical and mental changes when have to go through.
