What fabric is the most breathable?

24
NoviceTextile asked 2 weeks ago

I am looking for a fabric that has atleast 10% stretch and has either a satin, charmeuse, or taffeta finish.

They [the finishes] all seem to leave sweat stains and retain odor, but perhaps if it had a certain backing this could be avoided….?

I am looking for a textile that will not compromise my desired:

– finish (sheen)
– comfortability (similar to active wear)
– wear (repeated/wash or dry clean friendly; close fit)

Any suggestions?

P.S. I am well aware of bamboo, linen, cotton, and other natural fibers being the standard answer for this question. Please avoid generalized answers, and provide specific types if possible.

Thank You
