During using of textile materials, such as intimate apparel, which is in close contact with skin, the water transport capability is very important to avoid any uncomfortable feeling to the users. The water transport capability of fabric-foam-fabric plied materials were evaluated in this study. The plied material is intended to be used in intimate apparel. The fabric-foam-fabric plied materials were prepared by plying polyurethane foams (non-laminated and laminated) with different fabrics. Therefore, we reported the water transport capability values of different plied samples and the results were discussed properly.
