Overview of underwear fabrics

Want to know more about underwear fabrics? Today we will introduce 4 main fabrics to you so that you can easily choose underwear that suits you!

The first is bamboo fiber fabric, which is known as the "second skin of the human body".

According to the production method of bamboo fiber, there are bamboo original fiber, bamboo pulp fiber and bamboo charcoal fiber. Among them, bamboo charcoal fiber is different from the other two, and it is somewhat similar to the synthesis of chemical raw materials (similar). Due to manufacturing process issues, the mainstream on market uses bamboo pulp fiber as the raw material for underwear, mainly cotton and bamboo blends. Generally, underwear made of bamboo fiber is a little more expensive, so you should pay attention to the distinction when buying. (Bamboo fiber is the best)

Bamboo fiber fabric

Bamboo fiber is a very good underwear material. Because bamboo naturally contains "bamboo quinone", this chemical substance has antibacterial properties. In addition, the porous structure of the bamboo fiber itself gives it good breathability and moisture absorption. These two properties make bamboo fiber one of the best underwear materials.

It has the following advantages:

1. Antibacterial and antibacterial function. When the same number of bacteria is observed under a microscope, bacteria can multiply in large numbers in cotton and wood fiber products, while about 75% of the bacteria on bamboo fiber products are killed after 24 hours.

2. Deodorizing adsorption function. The special ultra-fine micropore structure inside the bamboo fiber has a strong adsorption capacity. It can adsorb formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, ammonia and other harmful substances in the air to eliminate bad odors.

3. Moisture absorption and dehumidification function. The cross-section of the bamboo fiber is uneven and deformed. It is filled with approximately elliptical pores and is highly hollow. The capillary effect is extremely strong and can absorb and evaporate water in an instant (cooling property).

4. Super UV resistance. The UV penetration rate of cotton is 25%, while the UV penetration rate of bamboo fiber is less than 0.6%. Its UV resistance is 41.7 times that of cotton.

5. Super health care function. Bamboo is rich in pectin, bamboo honey, tyrosine, vitamin E, SE, GE and other trace elements with anti-cancer and anti-aging functions.

6. Comfortable and beautiful function. The bamboo fiber unit has fine fineness and good whiteness. After dyeing, the color is elegant, bright and true, not easy to fade, has a bright luster, is plump and straight, elegant and generous, has a good drape, and has a natural and simple elegant texture.

The main problem why bamboo fiber is not popular is that the fabric is relatively delicate

1. Bamboo fiber is relatively fragile and should not be rubbed vigorously. It can only be washed by hand and not by machine. Blending can improve this problem.

2. After being used for a long time, the original bamboo functions will gradually weaken and cannot be maintained for a long time.

3. The production is more complicated than the extraction of cotton and linen, and there may be chemical pollution during the processing.

Next is the "Model"

This is also a very suitable fabric for underwear.

"Modal", which sounds very chemical, is solid wood fiber, a very natural product, extracted from shrubs through chemical methods.

Its advantages are:

1. The raw material is wood from nature, which can be naturally degraded after use and will not affect the environment.

2. Modal fiber is soft, smooth, bright in color, the fabric feels particularly smooth, the cloth surface is bright, and the drape is better than the existing cotton, polyester, and rayon. It has a silk-like gloss and feel. It is a natural mercerized fabric.

3. Modal fiber has the strength and toughness of synthetic fibers and is stronger than pure cotton and polyester cotton, which reduces breakage during processing.

4. The moisture absorption capacity of Modal fiber is 50% higher than that of cotton fiber, so Modal fiber fabric can stay dry and breathable. It is an ideal close-fitting fabric and health-care apparel product, which is beneficial to the human body's physiological circulation and health.

5. Compared with cotton fiber, Modal fiber has good morphological and dimensional stability, making the fabric naturally wrinkle-resistant and non-ironing, making it more convenient and natural to wear.

Its disadvantages are:

1. Pilling phenomenon. After using the modal for a long time, the pilling problem may occur, which affects the appearance and style of the fabric.

2. The textile cost of modal is relatively expensive, generally more expensive than pure cotton.

3. Mordai fabric is almost perfect. The only drawback is that it has a poor fit. Although Mordai fabric does not contain any harmful substances, it is not suitable for some people with allergies because it is chemically processed.

Conclusion: Modal is the most suitable material for making underwear. If you are fine wearing the modal, you can continue to wear it, because some people may be allergic to the raw materials of the modal. If there is disease there, it is best to change to another material or pure cotton.

Then there is the "pure cotton" material.

Cotton is a material that is comfortable to wear and absorbs moisture. Basically no one will suffer from allergic reactions due to wearing cotton.

What are the advantages of pure cotton material:

1. Pure cotton fabric is made of cotton as raw material, which is obtained from nature and ecology.

2. Good hygroscopicity and comfortable to wear. Cotton fiber can absorb moisture from the surrounding atmosphere, and its moisture content is 8-10%, so when it contacts people's skin, it makes people feel soft but not stiff. If the humidity of cotton cloth increases and the surrounding temperature is high, all the moisture contained in the fiber will evaporate and dissipate, keeping the fabric in a water balance state and making people feel comfortable.

3. Good moisturizing properties. Because cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the thermal conductivity coefficient is extremely low, and because cotton fiber itself is porous and has high elasticity, a large amount of air can accumulate between the fibers, and the air is a poor conductor of heat and electricity. Therefore, pure Cotton fiber textiles have good moisture retention, and wearing pure cotton fabrics makes people feel warm.

4. Good heat resistance and alkali resistance. Pure cotton fabrics have good heat resistance. When the temperature is below 110°C, it will only cause the water on the fabric to evaporate and will not damage the fibers. Therefore, when pure cotton fabrics are worn at room temperature, the clothes will not be easily worn out and have high durability.

5. High hygiene. Cotton fiber is a natural fiber whose main component is cellulose, as well as a small amount of waxy substances, nitrogen-containing substances and pectin. Pure cotton fabrics have been tested and practiced in many aspects. There is no irritation or negative effects when the fabric comes into contact with the skin. It is beneficial to the human body when worn for a long time and has good hygienic performance.

Its shortcomings are also very simple

1. Due to its good hygroscopicity and moisturizing properties, if your underwear is sweaty during regular exercise, it is easy for bacteria to breed, especially during the rainy season, it is more likely to become moldy.

2. It is easy to shrink. The shrinkage rate of pure cotton clothing is 2% to 5%, except for special processing or washing.

3. Easily deformed, pure cotton clothing will be easily deformed.

Conclusion: If you don’t know what underwear to buy, you can buy pure cotton and you won’t make a mistake.

I have to mention the underwear made of silk (mainly silk here)

The previous ones are all plant fibers. Now let’s talk about protein fiber, which is a fiber that is closer to the human body. Therefore, silk feels good to wear. It is comfortable against the skin, wicks away perspiration, absorbs moisture and retains heat, and is beautiful and fashionable.

Silk fabric

Advantages of silk:

1. The protein fiber of silk will not irritate the human body, and its texture is smooth and soft. The fabric feels very comfortable after wearing it.

2. Hygroscopicity is a major characteristic of silk fabrics, which can prevent clothing from being too dry. The reason why silk clothes are breathable and cool after wearing them is because silk fabrics are porous fibrin and can also maintain moisture in the skin. In summer, The porous structure of silk also helps dissipate body heat.

Disadvantages of silk fabric:

1. Silk fiber is thin and of course it is quite easy to wrinkle. In fact, this is not just a problem of silk fabrics being prone to wrinkles. All pure natural fabrics have this problem.

2. It has poor wear resistance and is easily broken if it is caught by objects. Please pay attention when wearing it.

3. The fabric is relatively delicate, so it is best to wash it by hand, and do not dry it in direct sunlight or wring it out.

Conclusion: Silk feels great on you and is an ideal underwear material.

Choose the underwear fabric that suits you according to your needs and preferences. At the same time, pay attention to the maintenance and replacement of the underwear, to ensure the comfort and service life of the underwear.
