Abstract: Through the use of thermal conductivity and moisture related measurements, this article investigates the physical properties of undergarments of different compositions (cotton, polyester, rayon, viscose, etc.). This research is used to determine which types of materials would best be suited for use in sports/day-to-day/comfortable clothes. Important properties measured include the porosity of the material as that affects the ability for moisture to be released, as well as the permeability of the material, among others.
