Why Wicking Clothing for Cancer Patients?

For women, in particular, cancer treatment often sets off menopause. Menopause then kicks in with night sweats and hot flashes. These are very uncomfortable because they come in waves causing periods of intense heat (and sweating) with accompanying periods of cooling off and that clammy feeling.

With wicking clothing, the sweat is wicked away from the skin lessening that clammy feeling. This wicking fabric has been used in sportswear clothing for a number of years and is available to wear as well. The benefit of wicking clothing for cancer patients is the fact that this fabric is now used for wicking pajamas, tops that go from casual to dressy, and even nightsheets and pillowcases.

Even though winter has hit many of us, hot flashes and night sweats still bother most women. Our menfolk suffer a bit as we turn down the thermostat and open windows at night. They freeze. We sweat. So, maybe night sweats pajamas would be a godsend for our menfolk – not only are they practical but some are very sexy.
