The Best Menopause Clothing

So you are looking for the best menopause clothing? You have come to the right place. Nothing can prepare you for those hot flushes and sleepless nights until they are upon you. I have a few suggestions that will help you through the symptoms of menopause, including clothing and fabrics that will not only help you stay cool, but if your skin is also dry and itchy, they will limit irritation too. The key to all of this is easy layering. Find easy clothing to pull off and put on again if necessary. So let’s dive in.

Pajamas For The menopause

One of the most challenging side effects of the menopause is the hot flashes, particularly if they keep you awake at night. There are several things to look out for when looking for pyjamas for hot flashes. First avoid human-made fibres unless they are specifically designed to cool the skin. Look for lightweight cotton, silk or bamboo. These fabrics will also be gentler on your skin if it feels dry and itchy. There are also moisture-wicking pyjamas available. Depending on your budget, you can find high street and high-end options to choose from. Consider adding a lightweight bamboo, silk or cotton sheet to your bed too so that you can cover yourself in that if you need to.

Menopausal Clothing

When searching for the best menopausal clothing, consider the following elements.

  • Moisture-wicking – Draws moisture away from the body and onto the fabric
  • Temperature control – Regulate temperature and can be either natural (merino wool) or humanmade think sportswear. 
  • Cooling fabrics – Usually work by allowing the temperature to leave the body quickly allowing it to cool down.
  • Odour control – Contain antibacterial properties that reduce bacteria build-up from sweating and therefore minimise odour. 

If you have recently found that it is hard to shift weight from around your stomach area you are not alone. When combining this with your ever changing temperature it can be tricky. I advice you to choose garments in the fabrics mentioned but also look for designs that come in under the bust and gently skim over the tummy area. Avoid anything that sits flat to the skin because that will likely make you feel hotter, but also anything baggy that falls straight down from the bust. Otherwise it will only make you look bigger than you are. 

 Unless a garment is specifically designed for hot flashes, then a general rule would be to stick to natural fibres. Merino wool, bamboo, cotton and silk will all work well during hot flashes. Alternatively, look at performance sportswear with built-in features to tackle heat and moisture. 

Cooling Bras For Menopause

When searching for lingerie, the last thing you want to do is go for lots of padding in polyester fabrics. If possible, choose bamboo, cotton, silk or one of the specially designed bras with inserts that you can place inside the bra that is otherwise kept in the freezer. 

Julie May specialises in bras for those with sensitive skin, post surgery, or suffering during the menopause. Use code SOCIAL15 for 15% off. 

Alternatively look at bra liners which sit inside the bra and are designed to wick moisture away from the skin.

Finally, you could look at bras designed to cool the skin.

Whichever option you choose, try to find something solely to keep you feeling comfortable.

Capsule Closet Success testimonials

'When you join the membership it isn't generic it is tailored to your needs. Michelle considers each individual person and provides advice and guidance based on their needs. I have learnt so much since I joined I feel like I could sit an exam on it now! Honestly, without a doubt if you feel like you are lost with what to wear, you don't know what suits your body shape or your shape has changed, you've lost confidence, you're starting a new job, or you want to minimise your wardrobe, Michelle's membership is without a doubt for you. You can not get better for the price, I have looked!'
I joined Michelle's facebook "capsule wardrobe challenge" in June 2020. I loved her approach of starting off with a concept of what colours and styles you were attracted to, followed by what your lifestyle required functionally. It helped me assess my existing wardrobe with a checklist in mind instead of feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. I found the video format and weekly check-ins easy to follow and explained each stage of building a capsule well. She has been quick to answer any queries I have and to offer her professional stylist's opinion with a gentle manner. I am most grateful for Michelle's overarching aim to help her clients "find their happy place". This membership is about being comfortable in your own skin, not about being super fashionable, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me find my confidence again. 😊
There is no doubt in my mind that having a personal stylist online is worth the investment. In fact, at the end of the day I will spend considerably less while looking and feeling so much better. Why? Because I will never again mindlessly spend and spend and spend on clothes that just aren’t right for me and that don’t make me happy. I think we all dream of that wardrobe that makes us happy and confident, but it is so easy to just give up and just wear something. I know I did. And that is just plain crazy because I love clothes! I have always been attracted to styles that I lacked the confidence to try out. Now, with the help and guidance of Michelle, I can finally explore those styles with confidence knowing that whenever I run an item by Michelle, she will give me her honest feedback on whether or not it will fit with my colors and with how I want to look and feel. In short: Michelle’s advice really is priceless. I feel an A-lister in the garments I have purchased since becoming a member! Pssst: One secret, you don’t have to become a minimalist if you don’t want to. Michelle is not about legalistic minalism, she is all about you finding out what works for you and that – along with her very deep knowledge of style – is why I think her membership works for me when in the past nothing else has.
