New York Summers put the SWELT in sweltering! In fact, the  heat + humidity combo this summer has actually proven deadly. Last week there were 3 heat stroke related deaths in the city. I'm not trying to scare anyone, but the city I love can actually be deadly in the summer. And as this is a public transportation city, most of us spend a substantial amount of time underground. The platforms where you wait for the train can be brutal, and let's not even mention the trains that arrive without air conditioning that you are on for a good 30-45 minutes standing up in the heat waiting to reach your destination. (Sorry MTA, but the truth is the truth!)

Carrying bottled water is one great way to stay cool, but finding as many ways as you can to beat the heat in this city is an absolute MUST. I found a great way to stay cool this summer and best of all it's from a very old and familiar friend!

It's been super important to me when I started blogging and finally relented and decided to try out 'being PR friendly' (just about a year in) that I shared the brands I used and was truly excited about. Jockey is a brand I 'discovered' well over 10 years ago when visiting my favorite JC Penney and seeing a huge melee in the Jockey section. Women snatching and opening bins and drawers. On the line waiting to be rung up was woman after woman clinging to Jockey multi-packs like they were golden treasures. I was wearing a different brand at the time, and my curious nature forced me to ask what the fuss was all about (Thinking to myself, 'Underwear are Underwear' right?). After just being looked at like I was insane, someone finally answered simply 'these are the most comfortable underwear I've ever owned, and they are all I'll ever wear.' I looked at the line closely and there was a huge age range of women on that line. And at their collective urgings, I took the plunge and bought my first multi-pack, and have worn Jockey pretty much exclusively ever since! And now I totally get the excitement when I find my Jockey's on sale!

This summer Jockey launched the Jockey Staycool Collection, Originally developed for NASA, the Outlast® technology behind Jockey® staycool underwear helps your skin feel up to 3° cooler!

How It Works:

What It Does:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Special Thermocules™ absorb excess heat to maintain your optimal external body temperature, helping to keep you cooler all day, every day…all year long.

While I love my butterflies, I'm not yet comfortable enough to share any shots of me in my skivvies, but I'll let the smile on her face say it all!

The Reversible Tank and Tee:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - the Outlast® technology helps your skin feel up to 3 degrees cooler
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - reversible design, wear it as a crew neck or a v-neck
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - soft and breathable fabric blend and a touch of stretch
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - fitted styling is great for layering
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - narrow bottom & sleeve hems offer a smooth, fashionable finish

My Take

I had the chance to try out the entire Jockey Staycool Collection - I tried the Women's reversible t-shirt + tank, the modern brief and bikini and I really do find that they help keep you cooler! I've tried out clothing that wicks moisture away from you, which invariably makes you feel cooler, but these really do help you keep your cool when the heat is on! As someone who has worn Jockey for so long, some of the changes they have made throughout the years have been fantastic, particularly the fact that they are now label and seams free, and I find that they are the most durable of any brand I have tried.

The Staycool collection lives up to Jockey's level of quality that I have come to know and love.  As for me, I prefer briefs to bikini's, (I tend to wear my pants and denim at my natural waist), but for ladies who love low rise, the bikini's are a perfect choice for you! I'm a bit 'busty' (ahem naturally well endowed) and if you are too, I'd personally suggest to size up one on the shirts if you are wearing them out. Now if they are going to be exclusively PJ tops for you, then no need to size up, but if layering them under work clothes, or wearing them out by themselves, you may want to size up.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - WIN IT! - Ascending Butterfly and our friends at Jockey® have a very special surprise for 3 lucky winners! 3 winners will receive one (1) coupon code valid for one top and one bottom style of Jockey® staycool products.
