Night sweats pajamas, also known as wicking sleepwear, are specially designed sleeping garments designed for menopausal women. Though not as common, night sweats pajamas are also produced for men. Some brands include odor eating technology to prevent sweat-induced body odor. A variety of styles exist, and it is impossible to tell by sight alone that these pajamas are different from normal sleepwear. They are most readily available for purchase from online retailers.
Menopausal women will randomly experience hot flashes during the day and night sweats as they sleep. Though the intense feeling of heat is more likely to wake a woman from sleep, cold and clammy skin produced by cooled sweat can have the same effect. To prevent this, night sweats pajamas wick away sweat as it as produced, keeping a woman comfortable throughout the night. One must remember, though, that these pajamas are merely a palliative remedy, and women whose night sweats become progressively worse should see their doctor.
As night sweats pajamas absorb sweat, they also absorb the body's odors. To reduce noticeable smell the next morning, some manufacturers have included odor eating technology in the garment's fibers. The wearer or those she is around is not disturbed by body odor. This added feature, created through nanotechnology, is unnoticeable. Cleaning instructions, too, are no different.
A few manufacturers of night sweats pajamas make pajamas specifically for men. As men do not go through menopause, a variety of reasons, including obesity, sweat gland disorder and even warm climate, prompt men to buy these pajamas. The pajamas function in an identical manner, extracting moisture and keeping the skin dry. An odor eating feature is also available on men's pajamas.
Women are able to buy night sweats pajamas in nearly every style they would find shopping for normal pajamas. The shopping experience is no different, but as these pajamas are specialized, the price can be up to twice as much when compared with a similarly styled normal garment. The shopping experience for men is the opposite. The smaller market significantly restricts choices. Yet men, like women, can expect to pay more for their garments and a better night's sleep.
