Become's Menopause Edit: 7 Styles 5 Colours•
Posted on March 11 2019
Become clothing is designed by women for women and our dedicated femtech research team is committed to addressing the demands and concerns of women, just like you, around the world. What sets us apart from other cooling clothing brands is that our fabric uses a mixture of complex yarns and patent-pending Anti-Flush Technology™, which work together to address the four elements of the hot flush or night sweat: cooling the skin when heat peaks, wicking away sweat, controlling odour and, finally, releasing heat back onto the body when the post-flush chill sets in.
We launched back in 2017 with a groundbreaking anti-flush vest top and briefs, which were so successful in easing the symptoms of hot flushes and night sweats (brought on by the menopause, medication, illness or cancer treatment), that hundreds of customers got in touch to tell us which menopause wardrobe essentials they’d like to see next in our collection.
These messages inspired us to continue with our mission: the creation of unique pieces that not only look great, but use the latest in fabric innovation to provide comfort and relief – night and day. Just before Christmas, we launched a versatile long-sleeved and short-sleeved t-shirt as well as a simple yet sexy camisole. In January, we added leggings, whose seam-free, high-waisted cut shapes the body beautifully – no rolls, no bulges. Our latest piece, an anti-flush night dress, has proved to be our fastest-selling new addition to date.
So, whether you’re lounging at home, delivering a presentation at work or date night’s approaching, we’re pleased to now offer a range of basics that work hard to ease your symptoms whatever the occasion.
Deluxe Vest Tops
Our soft and simple anti-flush vest tops work with your body to keep you cool, dry and confident all day (or night) long. The fuss-free design features a higher neckline and armholes for greater coverage – working on the areas where you need anti-flush action the most. This piece is ideal for layering under your regular daytime outfit, be it a shirt, dress or sweater. On warmer days, you can wear the vest top on its own or under a jacket or cardigan. It also makes for great nightwear. Dress your vest top up or down, depending on your plans for the day. It looks smart with fitted trousers and single-breasted jacket for the office or, if dinner out is on the menu, team with a flowing maxi skirt or jeans and a statement necklace. Invest in a matching pair of briefs for maximum cooling. The vest top comes in a white, biscuit, navy, black or cerise pink, so it’s easy to find one to complement the rest of your wardrobe and individual style.
Carefully crafted from our ultra-thin signature anti-flush fabric, our midi-style briefs fit like a second skin and a higher waistline provides ample tummy coverage. They sit neatly at the top of the thigh and ensure all problem areas are covered. Available in all the same colours as our vest tops, coordination is easy, and a great confidence booster too.
No wardrobe is complete without a t-shirt (or two). Our classic anti-flush t-shirt (available in black or biscuit) feels super-soft and offer bags of comfort, not to mention being powered by Anti-Flush Technology™. Customers say they love the t-shirt’s versatility; like many of our pieces, it can be dressed up or down and always looks amazing paired with jeans or our anti-flush leggings. We offer short-sleeved or long-sleeved versions, the latter ideal for those looking for extra confidence-inspiring coverage. New colours are arriving in the Spring.
Camisoles are often considered an undergarment, but ours look so good, many customers can’t wait to show them off. The simple yet striking design features adjustable skinny straps (complete with pretty gold detail) to ensure the perfect fit and makes a comfortable base layer for any outfit. If you want to wear a bra underneath, that’s fine, or go without for greater contact with the skin (enhancing the effectiveness of the fabric). Our camisoles are available in black and biscuit and are selling fast.
Leggings never go out of fashion, as proven by the current and popular Athleisure trend, and Become’s newly-launched pair are perfect for everything from yoga class, to lunch dates or just chilling out in front of the TV. Made from our smart anti-flush fabric, our leggings are sensationally soft and seamless (no camel toe!) and their no-roll high waist works to keep tummies in check. The added Spandex means they are super shaping and help to give you a smooth, synched silhouette. Wear with our long-sleeved t-shirt for a double helping of flush-fighting action and self-confidence. Available in goes-with-anything black.
Sleep-friendly Night Dresses
The menopause can play havoc with our sleep patterns. Waking up repeatedly during the night drenched with sweat can leave us worn out, drowsy and downright grumpy in the daytime. Thanks to the Anti-Flush Technology™ in our new night dress , help is at hand. It keeps you cool and dry whilst you slumber, working with your body whilst you sleep. The butter-soft material is loosely fitted to ensure it’s as comfortable as possible and the above-knee cut allows for increased freedom of movement. Choose from black or biscuit and team up with a matching pair of Become briefs.
New for 2019
Become fans have so much to look forward to this year (and we’re pretty excited about the under-wraps news too!). Whilst we can’t give too much away, we can reveal that new colours for some of our popular pieces are just around the corner and… maybe some new knicker styles too? Watch this space.
We hope you love our growing collection as much as we do and that our retrospective above has inspired you to try out some new styles whilst remaining confident and cool in the face of hot flushes and night sweats. It’s not easy finding the perfect outfit when our bodies are feeling the effects of the menopause … weight gain, hot flushes and sweats, to name just a few. We also know that no other menopause clothing will work as effectively or as efficiently as ours – we’ve tested them all! But don’t just take our word for it, why not try for yourself with our 60-day guarantee* and if it doesn't work for you, we will refund you in full.
We absolutely love hearing from all of you and getting feedback on our products, so do get in touch and let us know how these menopause must-haves are giving you your freedom back.
