Apparel Comfort Test
Apparel Comfort Test
In recent years, a new athleisure trend has moved the apparel industry to another level of innovation, such as high-tech fibers, materials, and finishing, coupled with highly fashionable design. With such innovative garments, many brands no longer focus solely on performance, but also on comfort. SGS defines comfort into thermoregulation, skin sensation, body movement, and psychological comfort.
Equipped with state-of-the-art wear comfort testing facilities and expertise, SGS can help to test fabric, fabric systems and finished garments to assess different aspects of performance that influence wear comfort.
