Women’s Thermal Underwear

Women’s Thermal Underwear

When many people consider thermal underwear, they may think it is for men only but there is a wide range of women’s thermal underwear available.  Long johns (as they are for men) have cleverly become long janes.  The range of women’s underwear is available in a number of pale and pastel shades to give them a more feminine twist.

Long janes are ‘legging’ type pants, which can be easily worn under trousers.  They are free of side seams so there is no risk of chafing and they fit close to the skin so they are not bulky under other clothes.  They are often a blend of synthetic fibres such as viscose and polyester.  These two fibres have good thermal qualities and work well, keeping moisture away so that it does not dry cold on the skin.  Women’s thermal underwear is available in a range of sizes so they are suitable for most people and they are machine washable.

Women’s thermal underwear can be teamed with a variety of vest type or t-shirt type tops.  They are ideal for wearing under sweaters to ensure a cosy feel on the colder winter days.  They also come in a variety of shades and should be considered an essential for winter.

Women’s thermal underwear is available at a very reasonable cost so being sure of a cosy feel in winter will not break the bank and items are available either in sets or singly, so mixing and matching is a possibility.

Dressing for the Winter Sales

This is the time of year when everybody is thinking of hitting the sales to stock up on bargains.  However, the weather can be very off-putting.  Icy winds and rain can mean that we might rather sit in front of the fire and watch TV than hunt down the cut-price items that we are desperate to get our hands on.

By dressing for the weather, we can stay warm and cosy and go out and spend our hard earned cash.  Keeping feet warm and dry is essential and thermal socks can be a good way to achieve this.  There is a range of men’s thermal socks as well as those for women and children which work by keeping any moisture away from the skin, so that it does not dry cold on the skin.

Thermal underwear is available for every age range and this is a good way to defend the body from the cold.  This works in the same way as thermal socks but there have been advances in the design of these items, so they are no longer bulky.  Women’s thermal underwear and those ranges for men and children are lightweight and are often made from a blend of natural and synthetic fibres to give them a longer life.

With a good foundation like this, a good winter outfit can then be finished off with hats, scarves and gloves.  To keep the look stylish these can be purchased in a matching set at a very reasonable cost.
