This study aims to estimate the properties of baby’s clothes materials and consider the applicability to Baby’s underwear. Observing styles appeared in our daily clothing lives; the underwear which should be put on inside is important to form comfort clothing macroclimate under layers of clothing from the inside to the outside. Under wear materials are required to play roles as materials worn next to skin. The underwear requires the movable design; materials with tender touch feeling and good moisture transport from the previous study. Especially for baby’s underwear materials; the fabrics must be selected carefully since the heat capacity of their body is small and the skin epidermis is thin. In this study typical materials worn next to skin are collected among cover-all wears on the market. Twenty kinds of samples are selected. Cotton and cotton blend fabrics are mainly used for the baby and lady’s underwear. Samples are measured for their physical properties and the transfer properties of air; heat and water. From the results of low specific density value and compression property; underwear of pile fabrics is suitable in winter. Underwear of 1x1 interlock knitted fabrics can be napped easily and produced various fabrics adopted widely use. They are suitable in all seasons from the thermal and air permeation property; and shows smoothest and softest touch feeling among sample groups in this study.

Keywords: Baby’s underwear; comfort; physical property; air/water transport
