It is bacteria resistant and has a light and long-lasting texture. It does not crease because of its elastic structure. It gives good results when blended with natural fibers. All kinds of clothing can be made from polyester fibers. It can be used alone or blended with fibers such as wool, cotton and linen. It is also used in various fabrics and textures such as tulle, taffeta, satin and organza. This kind of fabric has a great influence on today’s underwear fashion.

Micro modal : The fabrics produced from natural materials are especially preferred in the production of underwear today. Micro modal underwear is one of them.

Cotton :

* it breathes,

* It does not sweat,

*It is non-allergic,

* Its maintenance is difficult, cleaning instructions should be fol/o wed

* It creases faster,

* It is difficult to iron it.

Cotton is a commonly used natural fiber. It grows in a poll. Chemical/y, cotton fiber consists of cotton wax and pure cellulose containing cotton oil in small quantities. The features such as absorbency, wetness resistance, softness and firmness distinguish cotton from other fabrics. Cotton absorbs more moisture than wool. It evaporates sweat and provides comfort especially in hot conditions, so it is highly preferred in underwear and baby dresses. It is one of the most used raw materials by the underwear manufacturers. Cotton yarn fabric shaped in the skilled hands is also favored by consumers. it can be washed in warm water and it creases. It can be dried by hanging. Creases are removed easily when it is damp, however it should be ironed with steam iron when it is dry. The cotton fabric blended with synthetic is less creased and ironed more easily. The drying of the cotton fabrics takes longer time than synthetic fabrics such as polyester, because natural fibers like cotton are more absorbent than the synthetic ones.

Cellulose : It is an organic maten’al produced by plants through synthesis. Cotton that retains the air flow gives insulation property to cotton fabric. the air quantity restrained by cotton is less than the quantity restrained by wool and the retention of cotton is moderate. It has less elasticity and strong and durable structure.

Linen : Linen that is a kind of fiber such as jute, hemp and sisal is made from the body of a plant named linum usitatissium. Many different processes required during the spinning and weaving and difficulties due to non-elasticity make the linen less economic than cotton. linen fabrics are highly durable and absorbent. They made from slippery linen fibers do not restrain the airflow, so it makes you feel fresh. It has a ventilation effect because it absorbs moisture. linen yarn is mostly used in weaving than knitting because of its firm quality. The natural linen creasing very easily should be ironed when it is damp. Wool: It is a protein fiber with high tortuosity and it is obtained from sheep. The thinness of the fiber is important in terms of the yarn and fabric quality. The fibers that are thin and long give you a thinner and longer fabric. The thinness of wool fibers is measured in microns (1 micron: one thousandth of a millimeter). lts thinness, quality and features vary according to the type of sheep. Woolen fabrics are soft, elastic and highly hygroscopic. Wool fiber consists of engaged flakes going in the same direction. The air retrained in the fiber gives an isolation property to the fabric. Dry wool can absorb moisture up to 40-50% of its own weight but wetness is not felt and it restrains the heat. These products are used as underwear in winter by elders.
