Pressure is the most important aspect for body shaping garment, among various performance requirements such as moisture transference, softness, elasticity, recovery and skin stimulation. Girdle pant is a typical fashion product of body shapers. In order to achieve the required performance of hip lifting, abdomen reshaping and waist tightening, certain fabric pressure must be applied to the human body. The greater the pressure, the more shaping result can be achieved. However, if the garment is too tight, the human muscles and nerves will receive excessive pressure and blood vessels may be closed. All these will lead to the sensation of tiredness or even pain. This paper explores the comfort boundary towards girdle pressure and determines the corresponding fabric mechanical properties.
