Abstract

The comfort of garments encompasses a large variety of factors, including physical aspects such as warmth and water resistance, and psychological aspects such as the sense of wellbeing associated with the right style and fit. Although some aspects of comfort are highly subjective, others can be measured and taken into account when designing fabrics and garments.
