Wearability: What does wearability mean?
Fashion Terms

Is wearability a real word?  It certainly seems like someone with poor spelling or grammar made that one up.  It truly is a word, but it is a bit odd in my opinion.

Wearability means the durability of clothing under normal wear.  The term can also refer to whether or not the clothing is something that people will actually wear.  For example, “the Haute Couture designer developed unique clothing for the Fashion Week runway, but I question the wearability of the styles in a real world situation such as going to the grocery store”.

Wearability is an important consideration in the design of clothing.  Clothing should be durable as well as fashionable. 

Avant garde fashion can potentially have a wearability issue.

Reversed it is sort of the “ability to wear” (wearability).
