Layering with Long Underwear to Stay Warm

Going outside and winter can be quite a shock to the system if you're not appropriately dressed. However, the art of layering is a tried-and-true strategy that will keep you warm and help regulate your warmth and comfort all today. One of the things you're going to need when it comes to layering will be long underwear. While these base layers can come in many names like women's long underwear or thermals, you will find that most of them will generally be the same type of product.

How to layer

While layering is good, it is helpful to know what each layer does for you. Knowing exactly what each one does will help you make the best decisions on what to wear. This will help you stay warm, and you can shed any layer needed in case you become too warm.

 • The Base Layer: This layer will be your thermals or long underwear. You will want to get a non-cotton fabric that will wick sweat from your skin.

 • The Middle Layer: This layer will insulate your body. It will hold in a lot of the body heat that you get from your thermals.

 • The Outer Layer: Also known as the shell layer, this will protect you from any rain or wind, so it doesn't get inside your other layers. While staying warm is essential, part of it is also staying dry. 

A lot of cold weather layers are going to be your women's long underwear. These will be Merino wool or polyester blends that will help wick away moisture and keep you warm and dry. You'll also want to look at the fabric that's going to be waterproof and even breathable. Breathability is important. It wicks the moisture away from your skin to escape out and not be held close to your body.

Long underwear should be good at managing moisture. This means moisture-wicking should be one of your thermals' prime features before you even purchase them. Being wet and cold can be harmful to your health and safety. you want a thermal that will keep you dry by pulling that moisture from your body, leaving your skin dry and warm. Frostbite and hypothermia are real concerns in colder temperatures. Avoid materials like cotton as they absorb moisture and hold it there to make for a very unpleasant experience.

Remember, you don't always have to wear all three layers when you go outside. Often, it's going to be dependent on the outdoor temperature and even your tolerance to the cold. If you are going on an outing, it is best to bring extra layers just if the temperature drops unexpectedly. When it comes to layering, it is better to have too much than not enough. You can always pull off a layer if you're getting too hot.
