About DryDreams

If you suffer from night sweats due to medical conditions like menopause, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy or pregnancy, then you understand the discomfort of waking up in sweat-drenched sleepwear.

The DryDreams Signature Nightgown, made from high performance athletic fabric, actually pulls sweat away from the skin and allows it to quickly evaporate.

DryDreams founder Anne Best is a breast cancer survivor. After going through countless surgeries and chemotherapy treatments, she found herself constantly waking up in the middle of the night from night sweats.

Best tried wearing her husband's high performance athletic wear to bed, noticed what a difference it made and was determined to put an end to sleepless nights.

About the DryDreams Signature Nightgown

DryDreams claims their products, which include men's and women's sleepwear and pillows, minimize the disruptive effects of night sweats. The special fabric pulls perspiration away from the skin, and the open knit construction promises to keep you cool and dry, and prevent you from waking up freezing cold after a hot flash is over.

I tested the long-sleeve Signature Nightgown on a hot summer night after a triple-digit day. When I read the garment's tag - 100 percent micropolyester - I thought back to the 1970s when polyester double knit was the fabric of the era and it felt like being wrapped in plastic. But this nightgown felt like silk and was very cool when I put it on.

I went to bed and waited for my routine hot flash to kick in, but it didn't! The fabric kept pulling heat away from me and my hot flash never really got going.

Finally when I was working late one night while wearing the nightgown my hot flash showed up, and I'm happy to say that the DryDreams fabric did its job of wicking away the sweat on contact.

The DryDreams Signature Nightgown fulfills its claims: it wicks moisture away from your skin and is cool and comfortable. At $79, it feels a bit expensive, but sleeping comfortably makes it a worthy investment.
