No matter whether you choose to use HRT or the natural approach to manage your menopause symptoms it’s likely to take a while to control your hot flushes and night sweats.
This week on the blog I’m bringing you something a little different which could help you feel minimise your flushes by the holidays.
I want to share with you a new clothing brand called ‘Become’. It’s a basics range of vests and knickers for women with one major USP – it’s ‘intelligent’ and responds to your body to help regulate your temperature through a flush and out the other side, whilst at the same time reduce the odour from the sweat.
The first clothing range of its kind, Become is a startup founded by women and employing mainly women. Become is built on the belief that women of all ages will achieve great things and they don’t need to be held back by something as common as a hot flush.
So how does it work?
The intelligent fabric is built using ‘Anti flush technology’ and able to understand whether your body is having a hot flush and respond accordingly to help regulate your body temperature and whip away sweat and odours. The fabric is even smart enough to warm you up again if you feel chilled after a flush.
Too often, the menopause is seen as a time when women wind down, when they stop being sexy or cool. But all women will experience the menopause at some point and around 75% of women will be affected by hot flushes. This means that as many as 10 million women in the UK are dealing with this right now and why should any of us be held back?
Become clothing comes in two colours – black and biscuit – and I have been wearing mine everyday since I received it. Watch me opening my Become clothing and sharing my initial thoughts about the range in the video below.
“It comes in this absolutely gorgeous packaging. I was surprised at how soft and silky the material is and how it was trimmed with this lovely satin edges. I just find it amazing to know that it’s possible to for science to come to the party and help us with these gorgeous clothes that literally minimise our hot flushes and night sweats, absorb the perspiration that so many of us menopausal women suffer without odour and even warm us up again when feeling chilled after the flush”.
