    Underwear is close to the skin, known as women's "second skin".What high grade underwear fabrics brings skin is tender caress, inferior fabrics is heavy burden and harm, so the choice of fabrics is particularly important.The following is to popularize the knowledge of underwear fabric.

    Underwear fabrics are basically divided into two categories: natural fabrics and synthetic fabrics.Natural fabrics are divided into plant fiber (cotton, hemp and other natural fibers) fabrics and animal fiber fabrics, animal fiber fabrics are divided into hair (wool, rabbit hair, etc.) fabrics and secretions (mulberry silk, tussah silk, etc.).Natural fiber is basically applied to the base of underwear.Due to the limitations of natural fiber itself, underwear now USES synthetic fiber fabrics (polyester, nylon, spandex).Here are four common underwear fabrics.


Sweat absorption, breathable, heat retention, easy dyeing and printing.In recent years, manufacturers like to blend cotton with various fibers.Chemical fiber added to cotton is suitable for adjustable underwear, not only breathable, but also has a supporting effect.Cotton, however, is susceptible to coloration, mildew and silverfish.In water, the size of cotton shrinkage or larger, poor stretch elasticity and wrinkle.Sweat acid also reduces the cotton's strength and causes yellowing.Cotton is easy to fatigue deformation, absorption of sweat is not volatile.Because of these objective disadvantages, cotton can not be used in the ultrasonic process of underwear, only nylon and spandex can.


    Tactile, good quality, no static, but also sweat absorption, breathable.The only drawback is that it is not easy to clean and must be gently rubbed or dry-cleaned by hand.Velvet is elegant and luxurious, with a natural smooth feeling.If undertake adornment collocation with French bud silk or Swiss embroidery and velvet, can achieve very luxuriant effect.


    Lycra is a high quality spandex, which is a registered trademark of high quality stretch fiber developed by the former dupont company in the United States.Lycra is four to seven times as powerful as the body, and it can completely return to its original shape.Lycra can be used with any fabric, but it cannot be woven into fabric by itself.Because the characteristic of lycra itself is rich flexibility, comfortable with have support force, it makes fabrics has special rebound force, use on underwear, make the underwear is full of flexibility not only, more close-fitting, upper body effect is more comfortable and beautiful, not easy go out of shape, appear not easily drape, still have fine and close thin slippery simple sense.


    Modal is the use of natural wood or other materials from the spinning process of fiber, because the fiber itself and the use of materials in the production process, can be recycled, is a new era of environmental protection products, also known as renewable cellulose fiber.It has air permeability and moisture absorption, its soft, cool, delicate characteristics, make the fabric smooth as silk, wear very comfortable, washing many times is not easy to fade.But easy pilling, shape retention and wear resistance is poor, and has a strong flammability.


    Polyamide, also known as life is often said nylon fiber.Nylon is the nylon material pulled into a very fine fiber, and then woven from.According to the nylon material, the common is nylon 6 and nylon 66.Nylon fabric resilience and resilience recovery is excellent.Its wearability ranks the first of all kinds of fabrics, many times higher than other fiber fabrics of similar products, therefore, excellent durability.And the moisture absorption of nylon fabric in synthetic fiber fabric is a better variety, so the clothing made with nylon is very comfortable to wear.
