SHOPPERS DUB £250 HIGH-TECH DUVET THAT PROMISES TO REDUCE SWEAT BY UP TO 50% ‘THE MENOPAUSE MIRACLE’
- Simba’s £250 duvet uses NASA-approved temperature-regulating material
- The high-tech comforter is packed with ultra soft, 300 thread-count cotton
- It features a box border with double piping – which helps to enhance airflow
A high-tech duvet has been hailed a ‘menopause miracle’ thanks to its ability to regulate body temperature throughout the night.
Women suffering hot flushes – a common symptom of the menopause – say Simba’s ‘hybrid’ duvet has helped to keep them cool while they sleep.
The feather and down-filled luxury comforter – which costs between £245 for standard double and £345 for a super king size – contains Outlast, a technology developed by NASA to protect astronauts from temperature changes in space.
The 10.5 tog, ‘all-season’ duvet is packed with ultra-soft, 300 thread-count cotton and features a box border with double piping – as opposed to a single seam – designed to help to enhance airflow through the filling.

Outlast works by absorbing and releasing heat throughout the night, maintaining a consistent temperature and helping owners fall into a deep sleep.
According to Simba, the ‘phase change’ material actively responds to the temperature outside – absorbing body heat to cool the wearer down when they are too hot, and vice-versa.
The material comes with a Space Certified Technology seal of approval, with Simba claiming its new duvet can reduce sweat by up to 50 percent.
Writing online last month, one happy customer dubbed it a ‘menopause miracle’, and said she would recommend it to ‘all ladies of a certain age’.

Another said she was ‘finally getting a decent night’s sleep’, with a third claiming it had stopped her from sweating throughout the night.
Body temperature is believed to fluctuate between 1-2 degrees throughout the night, meaning we can lose up to one liter of water in our sleep.
Simba, who rolled out their pillow and mattress last year, has said the product is their ‘most progressive duvet yet’.
Why does the menopause cause hot flushes?
The menopause occurs when estrogen levels fall, typically at 45 to 55 years of age, which leads to periods stopping, the inability to have children naturally and a number of physical changes, including hot flushes and sweating.
For many women, these hot flushes may be little more than an uncomfortable inconvenience.
But for some, frequent severe episodes can leave clothes and bed sheets drenched in sweat, as well as causing sleepless nights, which has an impact on their working, social and home lives.
