The wearing comfort is an important aspect of a garment. When sufficient amount of dynamic ease is built into the garment, the wearer feels comfortable. To determine the amount of dynamic ease, it is crucial to map out the stress distribution along the main axis of movement. Such mapping can easily be defined with the aids of a motion capturing system and a special type of net garment which holds the light reflecting balls whose provide the stress information. Under the dynamic stress, the distance between these balls will change accordingly. The motion capturing system can record these distance changes and hence the dynamic stress distribution can be found. In this article, the author would like to present the design of the net-garment and the design of the extreme postures. The author would also demonstrate the motion capturing sessions, followed by the data analysis and the conclusion.
