A Cool Guide to Pack for Spring Travel•
Posted on April 05 2023
If you’re lucky enough to be going away over the Spring holidays, you may be working out what to take with you to avoid any last-minute panic packing. And this might be made even harder if you’re also suffering with hot flushes and night sweats.
Depending on your destination, you could be traveling light for a weekend trip, or taking a huge suitcase! Either way, here at Become we offer a whole range of wardrobe essentials that are perfect to keep you comfortable and dry, as well as looking great, wherever you’re headed. Here we’ve put together a few outfit ideas to take the hard work out of packing for you – and keep those pesky flushes at bay.
Where to start? Try a capsule wardrobe...
A ‘capsule wardrobe’ is essentially made up of a small selection of indispensable items that never date, the idea being that they can all mix and match together and be pepped up with seasonal pieces or accessories, for example a plain white t-shirt, or a pair of black leggings will literally go with anything. So when you’re choosing your capsule clothes, make sure that each piece complements the next. Thinking in this way is a great way to build up your perfect holiday wardrobe and will hopefully minimise the amount of time it takes to pack, as well as maximise the space in your bag.
We all know that Springtime weather can be unpredictable – swinging from gorgeous sunshine one minute to showers the next. This doesn’t help when your body temperature is also up and down like a yo-yo.
Whether you’re headed to the countryside or for some sea air by the coast, you’ll no doubt be wanting to cover all bases. One easy way to do this is to take a variety of layers. This is where Become’s Anti-Flush™ Tops can come in very handy. They’re so practical as well as super comfortable and come in a range of stylish colours and sleeve lengths. A plain white short-sleeved T-shirt is a classic piece that will look great with jeans for day wear. Or if you’re walking or cycling, it can easily be popped under a sweatshirt. If you’re planning on going out for a meal or two in the evenings, a long-sleeve shirt can look very elegant under a jacket. And should a flush strike, you’ll have the added benefit of our hard-working Anti-Flush Technology™ to keep you cool and dry.
The city break
Clever packing is key if you’re popping abroad for a few days – you may want to take hand luggage only, in which case you’ll need to maximise your clothing collection to cover travelling, sightseeing as well as lunch or dinner out.
Our leggings are great to wear for traveling as they are so comfortable. But as well as being perfect plane-wear, they will also be a good choice to take if you’re doing a lot of wandering or exploring, keeping you comfy as well as cool should a hot flush come on. They’re available in go-with-anything black, slate grey and navy blue. And remember that they can also be dressed up as well as down. As well as wearing them with a wool poncho or a hoodie on the plane, you can just as easily pair them with a long-line shirt or tunic and some heels or sandals in the evening.
The beach break
If you’re heading out long-haul to sunnier climes, you'll be happy you packed some cooling styles as hot flushes may be worse if you’re heading to a warm country. At least there may be a swimming pool or the sea to cool off in!
Our new Anti-Flush Racerback Dress is flattering to wear out on the town, and will keep you cool all night long. Out Tank tops and camis look equally fantastic with a pair of shorts for the daytime or tucked into a maxi-skirt or trousers for the evening.
In terms of accessories, as well as a day bag for all your essentials, a scarf or shawl is a great way to add an extra layer if you need one and will look chic at the same time. It can so easily be taken off should a flush strike, or popped back on if you feel chilly.
Whatever you decide to take with you, remember a good base layer. Become underwear will keep you cool beneath whatever you’re wearing – our anti-flush briefs perfectly match our bra and tops. They provide a comfortable layer to keep you feeling fresh, day and night, and our leakproof panties are a great solution if you are having irregular bleeding that is so common during perimenopause.
And wherever you’re headed, our anti-flush nightdresses are the only nightwear you’ll need to guarantee a good night’s sleep while you’re away.
Wherever you’re going, whether you’re home or abroad we hope you have a very Happy and Cool Holiday. Enjoy!
