Did you know that up to 75% of women sleep worse during menopause, both experiencing a lower sleep quality as well as sleeping up to 40 minutes less every night? The most common menopause sleep problems are hot flashes at night, sleep apnea and menopause insomnia.
Over 60% of women complain of menopause insomnia symptoms and ¾ of women suffer from hot flashes at night.
There are actions we can take to sleep better during menopause and to combat menopause sleep problems. One action that many might not be aware of is choosing the right sleepwear.
How to choose the right menopause pyjamas?
Doctor Marco Fritz-Naville, one of Switzerland’s most renowned physicians focusing on gynecology and pregnancy is well aware of the challenges of sleep during the menopause years. Hot flashes at night poses a big challenge for many women, it can last up to 5 years and significantly reduce sleep quality and duration. To sleep better we can take a few different actions
- Crank down the temperature: lower ambient temperatures ideally below 18 °C/ 64 °F helps us to sleep better. If we are struggling with hot flushes at night this is even more important.Not only does the lower ambient temperature helps us to feel cooler, it also supports a better sleep quality. Breathing in cool air helps to lower or core body temperature which helps us to fall asleep and to stay asleep.
- Have a cooling aid nearby: by having a glass of ice water or wet cloth next to your bed you can easily cool yourself down in the case of hot flushes at night.
- Menopause pyjamas for hot flashes: most sleepwear has not been developed and designed to support our physiological sleep needs and therefore aren’t equipped to help us deal with hot flashes, temperature fluctuations and night sweats. If we use a natural fabric like cotton it easily becomes soaked and is then wet and can become uncomfortably cold. Synthetic materials on the other hand trap in the heat and sweat and as a result we risk overheating even more.

“Sleep is essential for our health and wellbeing. For women sleep quality and sleep challenges varies throughout her life.
