What’s Your Second Skin Preference?
What is your ideal second skin and by this l mean that when you are buying clothing, which fabric do you find the most comfortable on your body?
Furthermore l am referring to outerwear and not underwear here.
I personally tend to prefer to wear cotton mix, mostly cotton for ease and efficiency and combined with the fact that they don’t always require ironing. But also l loved to wear bamboo, rayon, linen and hemp as well as organic cottons. Occasionally l wear wool and silk products.
As l veer into more eco organic territory l have been tending to start buying more into the hemp, organic cotton, bamboo and am currently looking into organics jute, linen, tencel and wool markets.
I prefer to wear clothing that does feel obviously more comfortable on my skin if not just feel like a second skin.
As l suffer hypersensitivity issues with many fabrics, l really look for soft products as well as clothing that doesn’t cause me undue ‘scratchiness’ on the skin. As the fashion industry slowly starts to take up the challenge of becoming more eco orientated, l do forsee that in the next perhaps ten years we will only be seeing natural clothing products on the market but at more affordable costings than the current market clime can offer today which can be offputting for many buyers.
So, what is your ideal second skin and by this l mean that when you are buying clothing, which fabric do you find the most comfortable on your body?
