Guest Post by Become
October is such an exciting month for us at Become™. Not only are we celebrating our first birthday, but we also hosted a very special workshop to mark World Menopause Day. We’ve been lucky enough to meet so many inspirational ladies this past year, including Meg and we love how we’re all on the same mission to transform how modern women talk about, think about and take on their menopause. They’ve all taught us so much, so we’d love to share some of the things we’ve learned from them all in our first amazing year….
When Become™launched a year ago our premise was bold – especially for a tiny start-up – that our anti-flush vests and knickers help reduce the number and severity of hot flushes and night sweats. But we were firm in our belief because we knew the amount of testing and research that had gone into their creation. Designed by women for women, then developed by the world’s No.1 in techwear fabrics and women’s underwear, we know no other vest works as effectively as ours – we’ve tested them all! We tried our clothes on so many different women, including doctors, bloggers, athletes and mothers. They were all experiencing various stages of the menopause. After four rounds of testing prototypes and compiling feedback on the efficacy, style and fit, we came up with the intelligent and stylish vests and knickers we have today. But don’t take our word for it, why not try one of our vests for 60 days and if it doesn’t work for you, we will refund you in full.
Our neutral black and biscuit shades have proven very popular, but the great news is that we have just launched three fantastic new colours, pink, navy and white. These will make such a stylish and versatile addition to any wardrobe. Wear them on their own, at night or layer under a jacket for a bold new look. We also have lots more products coming out from now until Christmas – watch out for short and long-sleeved T-shirts, nightdresses and leggings. Make sure to sign up to our VIP mailing list to be the first to know when they launch.
Become™ has been built on the belief that women of all ages can achieve great things, even when they are going through the menopause. One thing we’ve learned is that we’re stronger together. It’s very brave to share a personal experience, but it’s also a great way to get help and support. That’s why we’ve set up a Facebook Group called The Chilled Menopause. As well as offering discussion and advice from our team of experts, it’s a place to have a chat, share tips and recommendations, get real feedback or ask the things you’re just too embarrassed to talk about at home!
One of the most exciting things about Become™is that it’s a pioneering new brand, not afraid to break boundaries and turn traditional stereotypes on their head. Check out our Instagram and Twitter pages to see that we’re unashamedly honest and like to get to the heart of the things that matter most to menopausal women! We love initiating debate and conversations around the menopause so don’t be shy – we’d love you to join us.
We firmly believe that you shouldn’t be held back in life by hot flushes and night sweats and over 95% of our customers see a difference wearing Become™. Take a look at how we are helping some of them to feel like themselves again here. We want our ladies to take control of their lives so they can be bolder and braver than ever. And that’s certainly worth celebrating!
