The Best Silk Styles To Ease Menopause Symptoms

The Best Silk Styles To Ease Menopause Symptoms

Silk is a favorite for many reasons. Along with being a timeless, elegant style, once revered by royalty and now considered an stylish luxury – its natural cooling properties also prove beneficial for regulating body temperature, preventing overheating and excessive sweating. Especially for those going through menopause. 

We spoke to a customer the other day who said her mother has gone silk-exclusive due to menopause. And we’re here to give you all that you need to know about why many women approaching menopause are turning to silk and the best silk styles to ease these symptoms!

Why is silk so useful for menopause symptoms?

When you say the word “menopause” most anyone will know what you’re talking about. But when it comes to the actual symptoms and the experience itself, it’s not always so clear. You likely know about the hot flashes that come with the symptoms of menopause – but did you know it can be a back and forth between cold chills to hot flashes?

The fluctuating hormones during menopause and perimenopause can cause a dysfunction in the “hypothalamus”. While we’re not going to give you a science lesson, all you need to know is that it’s the part of your brain that regulates body temperature, and can lead your body to temporarily become overheated or over-chilled.

While this can be frustrating enough, it can be even worse when it comes to laying your head down at night. Constantly going from overheating to so cold that no blanket seems like enough can feel like your own personal hell. 

But with silk, it’s like having a specialized suit designed for these rapid temperature changes. 

Silk is naturally thermoregulating, effectively regulating your body temperature. It adjusts to your body’s needs, so whether you’re burning up or freezing cold, it’s able to ensure optimal comfort. Giving you exactly what you need from your sleep. 

Beyond that, silk is also naturally moisture-wicking, which means it can absorb sweat and other moisture from your skin. 

So, while it’s a great night-time solution to ensure better sleep, you can imagine just how beneficial it also is to experience this relief through the day too. 

It’s clear why this particular customer has turned exclusively to silk, namely high-quality silk such as our 27 Momme silk. Because it’s able to meet her where her body is at, and give her the relief she needs to sleep, live, and regulate temperature at every point. 

The best silk styles to ease menopause symptoms 

While silk in itself is a super-useful material for easing menopause symptoms through both the day and night, we’ve discovered a few extra things to keep in mind when selecting styles. Of course, breathable materials such as silk allow the air to flow, but it’s also a good idea to consider wearing an open neckline that can let in a light breeze, while letting out heat. 

This may not combat the cold flushes. But, if you’re in the right material – such as silk – you’ll be able to enjoy the cozy warmth when you need it and, when the temperature gets a bit high in your body, you’ll be able to experience the maximum relief from these symptoms. 

Here are some of the best silk styles to ease menopause symptoms, with both daytime and nighttime styles:
