Influence of weft knitted fabrics tensile characteristics and garment size on the body movement comfort

Maleki, Maryam Sorkhi; Mahmoudnia, Shayeste ; Mousazadegan, Fatemeh


The effect of fabric tensile property and garment size on the clothing pressure variation has been studied, considering the pressure alteration during the body movement with various ranges. The results reveal that for a constant body dimension, smaller clothing size applies higher pressure. In addition, fabric’s tensile modulus is a determinant parameter of the clothing pressure. Increment in the body movement range exerts more pressure on the body due to the greater strain of garments. Clothing pressure assessment confirms the pressure relaxation during the wearing time.
