It was recently proposed that there exist stable supersymmetric phases for finite temperature superstings. This issue was investigated using an effective supergravity which takes into account massive winding modes. Such a theory admits BPS solutions that do not suffer from Hagedorn-type instabilities. We extend several aspects of this work. First we restrict to the real-field sector of the theory and allow, in general, for unequal right and left winding fields. Then, by further specializing to type-II theories (IIA, IIB and a self-dual hybrid) we construct the most general 1/2-BPS solution and reveal several new features arising in various consistent truncations. In the heterotic case we investigate the general properties of the solution which is presented in a closed form in the limit of infinitely large left-winding field.
