While there's no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of what bedding is best for menopause, there are a few general guidelines that can help.
First, it's important to choose bedding that is breathable and moisture-wicking. This will help to keep you cool and dry, two things that are crucial during menopause.
Second, it's a good idea to choose natural fibers like cotton or linen. These fabrics are less likely to irritate your skin and will allow your body to breathe.
Finally, don't forget to pay attention to the pillow! A good pillow can make all the difference when it comes to getting a good night's sleep.
