What fabrics are best for regulating body temperature?

The best fabric for temperature regulation can vary by environment and usage. 37.5 Technology is not only embedded in a wide variety of fabric constructions, but also insulations, foams, and laminates to provide tailored thermoregulation in apparel, footwear, bedding and more.

How does 37.5 Technology help aid a women’s natural thermoregulation process?

During the thermoregulation process, moisture released from the body can build-up in the area between the skin and clothing, known as the microclimate. This trapped moisture has an amplifying effect on the way temperature is experienced – making hot feel hotter and cold feel colder. 37.5 Technology removes this moisture so it does not accumulate …

How do hormones affect thermoregulation in a women’s body?

Female reproductive hormones influence the thermoregulation mechanisms in a woman’s body as they naturally fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle, during pregnancy, and at menopause. Of these, the most widely recognized effects are hot flashes experienced during menopause, and temperature changes that occur during the menstrual cycle. Specifically, estrogens tend to promote lower body temperatures by …

Are there physiological differences between women and men that impact thermoregulation?

Yes. Comparatively, women have more sweat glands than men. Women also have a higher concentration of sweat glands in many areas of their body. Interestingly, women also tend to use a higher percentage of their sweat glands, while secreting less total sweat. Overall, this translates to a more efficient sweating process that can decrease the …
