What is it?
Become is made using a unique combination of intelligent fabrics that help to regulate body temperature and wick moisture away from the body while reducing odor. We chose only the most sophisticated yarns with light touch finish to feel silky smooth, comfortable and breathable against your skin.
During peri-menopause, the changes in the estrogen levels disproportionately (we don’t really know why) affect the hypothalamus, a tiny part of the brain which controls the appetite, sleep cycles, hormones and body temperature. As a result your body temperature gets affected which is manifested in a hot flush ultimately. The hypothalamus will suddenly begin to send signals that your core body temperature is too hot making you feel flushed and start sweating, then to compensate the rise, the core body temperature drops, at this time, that’s why you get the sudden chills afterwards.
You might ask, “what is so unique about Become from all the other sportswear brands, which also boasts about the wicking and what not in their products”. Well. The difference is that sportswear is not specifically designed to manage the hot flush perspiration. The heat and sweat that is expelled during a hot flush is completely different from workout sweat. During a hot flush a woman will expel a lot of heat and sweat in a very short period of time, around 5-7 minutes, whereas a normal workout would last for at least 30 minutes and the heat would be evenly distributed.
So we developed Become, which is now patent-pending, to ensure we manage the process from start to finish so you maintain a more appropriate body temperature, with less fluctuation, throughout the day. Each of the intelligent solutions we chose serve a different purpose and specifically designed to manage a hot flush.
