Would you try hot-flash fashion?

Up to 80 percent of women experience hot flashes at some point in their lives, usually due to pregnancy, thyroid issues, cancer treatments or menopause. (

A 2014 study from the University of Pennsylvania discovered that more than a third of women continue to have hot flashes up to 10 years after menopause.) Fortunately, there is relief, and it comes in the form of stylish sleepwear and accessories.

The Calgary-based Lusomé line, which includes everything from sexy nighties to comfy rompers and PJs, is made from a luxuriously soft moisture-wicking fabric that absorbs sweat from your skin and quickly evaporates it.
