Women's Cotton Apparel Guide: Directory and Information Regarding Women's Cotton Apparel presented by Apparel Search

Apparel is essentially the same thing as the word "clothing".  Clothing is a collective term for garments, items worn on the body.  Two other words that basically mean the same thing are "clothes" and "attire".

Apparel produced with cotton fabrics would be considered cotton apparel.  So, what about blends.  As you know cotton is often blended with other fibers.  For example, you have probably seen care & content labels that list fiber such as 70% cotton / 30% polyester.  That means that the fabric is a blend of cotton & polyester.  And yes, in that example it would be 70% of the fabric made with cotton fibers.

Cotton is soft, absorbent and breathable. So, if your clothes are itchy, irritating, stiff or clingy, look on your label because your clothing may not be made with 100% cotton.

In addition to the fiber content other issues in the manufacturing process can affect the hand of cotton fabric.

Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of cotton plants of the genus Gossypium in the family of Malvaceae. The fibre is almost pure cellulose. The fiber is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable fabrics.

The world uses cotton more than any other natural fiber and it is primarily grown and used to make cloth.

Some of the benefits:

  • Cotton clothing is soft and easily stretches, making it a comfortable fabric to wear. Due to its soft hand and comfort, it is often used in underwear, pajamas, undershirts and more.
  • Cotton fabric is breathable and transmits moisture away from the body and is absorbent and removes liquid from the skin, like a towel.
  • Cotton clothing protects against from heat in the summer and cold in the winter by providing thermal insulation as the cotton fabric traps air between the fabric fibers.
  • Cotton is hypoallergenic and does not irritate skin, it is used in medical products like bandages and gauze, and is the fabric of choice when it comes to baby apparel. Cotton fabric rarely causes allergic reactions and wearing cotton is often recommended for those with skin allergies.
  • Cotton has a high tensile strength, making it strong, durable and less likely to rip or tear than some of the other textile fiber options. It is actually stronger when wet, which helps it withstand many washings.
