How does it work?

Become's unique 'intelligent' fabric has three key features that make it so effective in managing hot flushes:

  • Heat transference

The cooling yarns used in Become fabric are flat - this gives the yarn more surface area, allowing the fabric to 'pick up' and distribute more heat away from the body.

A unique polymer additive in the material increases the surface area even further, forming small channels in the fabric that help to drive even more heat away from the skin.

The fabric is finished with a texturising process that gives it maximum breathability and ventilation - so it feels light, silky and cool against the skin, while actively helping to distribute heat away from the body.

  • Moisture wicking

Become's fabric also features an innovative 'intelligent' moisture-wicking system that mimics the normal cooling processes of your skin.

The material helps moisture to evaporate faster when the skin is hot, and slower when the skin is cool - so when a hot flush hits, the material can capture the extra moisture and transfer it away from the body, keeping you feeling fresh when you need it most.

The fibres in the material are delicately balanced to allow moisture to travel through the layers of yarn to the outer surface of the fabric.

By transporting moisture from your skin to the outer surface of the fabric, Become clothing offers a dynamic, intelligent response to changing temperatures, both during hot flushes and in the environment around you.

  • Odour reduction

All Become fabric is treated with a smart-tech finish usually found in extreme sportswear. The finish prevents odour by creating a barrier that blocks odour-producing bacteria from taking hold in the fabric.

So while the fabric is transporting sweat away from your skin, it won't absorb bacteria or allow them to flourish - meaning you and your Become clothing stay fresh all day.

Why do hot flushes happen?

As oestrogen levels change during the menopause, one of the most affected areas of your body is the hypothalamus; a walnut-shaped section of your brain that controls appetite, sleep cycles, hormones and body temperature.

When you're having a hot flush, your hypothalamus is sending signals to your body telling it that it's too hot, which causes you to start sweating and feeling flushed - the body's normal response to excessive heat.

After you've sweated for a while, these processes then cause your core body temperature to drop, which then gives you the sudden chills that often follow a hot flush. Thanks a lot, hypothalamus.

The quality of the items is really good. I like the subtle satin like edging on the vests. It makes them look and feel more expensive. I wear my vests under my scrubs to help wick sweat when I'm in or water resistant PPE gowns at work. They really do help with that. I also love to wear them with yoga leggings and they look nicer than my old vest tops.

I received my vest top in beautiful packaging. I’ve worn it on hot days and cooler days. It works really well. It seems to wick moisture away from the skin.
It’s very comfortable to wear and looks nice on. I can highly recommend!

I love the vests and as I don't feel any irritation as my skin is very sensitive from the menopause.
