As everyone knows when girlfriends get together, they have many long discussions about what is going on in their lives.
"Due to the life stage of myself and many of my friends our talks often turn to the subject of disturbed sleep due to night sweats associated with menopause, diabetes, chemotherapy treatment or other medically related issues," says Linda Wood of Sleep Secrets. "We often joke about waking up wet and clammy and needing to change sleepwear during the night. One friend laughed and said 'I have three piles of clothes next to the bed and don't even need to turn on the light; I just reach over and get changed'.
"I realised there was a gap in the market for stylish, comfortable, high quality sleepwear with a practical purpose that would give some relief to women experiencing night sweats - real women, going through an uncomfortable yet still normal part of life. We are healthy, active, independent women who have a sense of style and more importantly, a sense of ourselves. We deserve clothes that fit our lifestyles and our bodies - clothes that make us look and feel fabulous"
Ms Wood says she was motivated to look around for an answer and read a lot about bamboo fabric.
"I was intrigued, how could that scratchy plant produce fabric, but it does and when I felt bamboo fabric for the first time, I loved the soft, silky feel. I found out that bamboo fabric has excellent wicking properties, drawing moisture away from the skin to the outside of the fabric and evaporating quickly keeping you dry, cool and comfortable, thereby promoting a good night's sleep. Bamboo clothing is also especially good for sensitive skin and allergy prone skin."
Bamboo fabric is light to the touch, drapes beautifully and gives you the luxurious look and feel of silk or cashmere and the styling of our sleepwear garments has a high fashion image, making our garments ideal for any woman of any age. "My daughter says 'I just love the cami and tap pants, they are really fun and flirty'.
"As a woman in my 50s I found it hard to find sleepwear that wasn't too skimpy, or too matronly, so I have designed each piece with a woman's changing body shape in mind."
