Don’t Sweat It
Night sweats are about as comfortable as an appendectomy. Add a layer of drenched clothing to the mix and suddenly you’re hot and cold, sweating and shivering all at once. When your clothes get wet from perspiration, they stick against your skin and prevent your sweat from evaporating. The result: You’re wrapped in a clammy, cold mess, and your body can’t properly regulate its temperature to get you comfortable again.
Wicking fabrics are constructed of special weaves that pull the sweat off your skin so it can evaporate and allow the material to dry. They allow a layer of air to circulate between you and your clothes, so you stay dry and warm, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you. While they might not be able to stop the sweats, they will bring you some comfort so you can sleep more easily through the night
