The absorption rate of fabric-foam-fabric plied materials for making intimate apparel was measured in this study. The fabric-foam-fabric plied materials were prepared by plying polyurethane foams (non-laminated and laminated) with different fabrics. The plied material is intended to be used in close-to-skin garment. Thus, the water absorption behaviour of the material would affect its comfort property. Therefore, we reported the absorption rate values of different plied samples and the results were discussed properly.
