Sleep. It's something that is precious to us, and something our minds and bodies desperately need in order to thrive and function. As we grow older, there are many factors that can attribute to a restless night. After I became a mom, I had to quickly adjust my sleeping habits, and get used to much less sleep than I was used to getting. My body has been going through lots of hormonal changes since then. My mother has also been experiencing changes as she rides along through menopause. Sisters, hormonal changes and swings are just plain not nice sometimes. Depending on the time of month, or even season, having a comfortable body temperature for resting/sleeping can be difficult to achieve, and let's face it- if you're uncomfortable when you try to rest, chances are you won't be getting much sleep.
I was excited to learn about Cool-jams, which offers soft, comfortable wicking sleepwear for men and women, as well as bedding and performance sleep products.
Cool-jams fabric is a specially designed Poly Microfiber that has been engineered to feel like soft cotton but has all the attributes associated with the fastest wicking and drying material in the world. This ground-breaking Kottinu™ technology, with its amazing "cotton-like" comfort and feel, offers the superior odor and bacterial control of Bact-Out® and delivers unparalleled performance in moisture management, lasts 6 times longer than cotton fabric, maintains color sharpness with minimal fade and is a viable alternative to cotton in any application where the inferior attributes of cotton have been considered "the standard".
I can't say that I don't experience my share of night sweats. Two weeks ago, I woke up totally drenched in sweat one night. I had to kick all of the blankets off, and I really dislike sleeping without the weight of a comforter. Aside from my occasional night sweats, I felt that my mom would really be the one to benefit from a pair of Cool-jams sleepwear. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, so as she deals with all of the un-fun symptoms of menopause, she is having to do so without being able to take many types of natural supplements, hormones/estrogen, and has been suffering through sleepless nights. She can't stand to have heavy fabrics touching her skin, and often becomes way too hot in the middle of the night, which causes her to wake up, unable to become comfortable and go back to sleep. I was excited to share Cool-jams with her, and asked her to give them a try, and share her honest feedback.
We were sent the Cool-jams cami top and long pant in Turq Sea color, size small. The size and gender was indicated on a chart, printed right on the product packaging, so we knew that we were sent the correct size for each piece.
My mom and I explored Cool-jams together, and we not only loved the color of these PJ's, we loved they way the fabric felt.
After reading over some of the info included on the tag for the Cool-jams sleepwear, my mom said this was the first time she was actually looking forward to bedtime in a very long time. She was excited to try the Cool-jams sleepwear, and hoped for a restful night.
My mom loved the way the Cool-jams sleepwear felt. It was soft and comfortable, and she was able to keep it on all night long, without having to remove the bottoms. The moisture-wicking fabric helped to keep her cool, and helped regulate her body temperature, as well. Overall, she was very impressed by the fit and performance of the Cool-jams sleepwear, and has mentioned that she'd like to add more tops and bottoms to mix and match.
Here's my mom, Leslie, in her new Cool-jams Wicking Sleepwear.
One of the best features of the design of the cami top for my mom, is the built in shelf bra. She appreciates being able to have that extra layer of coverage and protection. Her chest area is always pretty sensitive, and she loved experiencing pure comfort in a sleepwear set! The pants fit well, and were loose on her where she needed/wanted them to be. One of my mom's major complaints in the sleepwear department (aside from finding pj's to keep her cool), was not being able to find a modest set of jammies that she felt comfortable wearing on family trips/vacations. She is super pleased with the Cool-jams, from their performance to their coverage!
