This time of the year is my least favourite. The heat and the humidity. It's hard to know what to wear, just the 'birthday-suit' would be nice but maybe not appreciated by the multitudes.
The other day a lady walked in. She was after a nightie. 'Well' , I said, 'I don't really have nighties, but I bet I can find something on the sale rack that you could use for a nightie'. I found a swing dress out there, my last one in marsala. The lady was very happy with the $ reduction and bought it without trying.
Next day, she walked in wearing it. 'Oh', I said, 'I see you're in your nightie today'. We both laughed. And she said - 'Well, bamboo is cooler than cotton. I put this on last night and decided it's too good to sleep in and much better to wear in the heat. I need some more of these'. She got herself a black and a red. Another happy customer.
Here are dresses you can sleep in or just wear in the heat.
The reason bamboo is cooler than cotton is due to the fact that it absorbs 3 times its' own weight in water. Men love the bamboo socks since they tend not to get sweaty feet in them. In our summer heat, have you tried bamboo yet?
