Wicking

Chemotherapy or Menopause making you feel wick-ed?

Hot-cold-hot-cold, the scourge of menopause (or as we say, chemo-pause) can turn your night into a nightmare.

Trying to deal with your raging internal thermostat is exhausting. Here’s a fabric/clothing tip that will help you keep your cool. It’s called wicking wear. Clothes made with wicking wear fabrics draw moisture away from your skin and into the outer layer of the fabric to keep you cooler and drier.

Originally designed for high performance sports activities, today you can appreciate the benefits of wicking fabrics from the low performance of your bed. Wicking wear hot flash pajamas and nightgowns are available along with bras, (including mastectomy ones), shirts, pants and hats.

So when flashes get you hot, get wick-ed.

Hi, my name is Lisa Lurie, Co-founder of Cancer Be Glammed. Cancer Be Glammed was born from my own struggle to hang onto my confidence & self-esteem following a double mastectomy and chemotherapy for breast cancer. I am passionate about providing women (with all forms of cancer) with easy access to great recovery products, style options and solutions. I found that looking better on the outside, helped me feel better on the inside.
