Pajama Fit and Function
February 3, 2023
Moisture wicking and moisture movement are two terms commonly used in reference to clothing, including pajamas. Moisture wicking refers to a fabric's ability to absorb sweat from the skin and transfer it to the surface where it can evaporate. This helps to keep the skin dry and prevents sweat from soaking into the clothing, which can cause discomfort and irritation. Moisture movement, on the other hand, refers to the ability of a fabric to transport moisture away from the skin to the outer surface of the garment where it can evaporate. Both moisture wicking and moisture movement aim to regulate body temperature and keep the wearer comfortable by preventing sweat buildup, but moisture wicking is more focused on the absorption of sweat, while moisture movement is focused on the transfer of moisture away from the skin.
