Abstract

The effect of body shape on the wearing pressure was seldom studied. There is a lack of understanding of the optimum range of pressure distribution, stationary and dynamically, for different types of products, body sizes and shapes, as well as different ages of consumers. No work was made on the performance deterioration of the pressure garments in terms of shaping power and comfort after repeated use. This project initiates an integrative approach to study the consumer market of the pressure foundation garment, the existing product limitation and the actual functional requirement for different body shape. These will then be transferred to the ideas for fabric, pattern and production design. The product quality will be then evaluated in terms of sensory comfort, static and dynamic pressure, shape-up effect and wearing performance.
